      Breast Cancer Epigenetics 

      Pitta, Chara A.; Constantinou, Andreas I. (Elsevier Inc., 2015)
      The molecular mechanisms underlying the development and progression of breast cancer are far from being understood. It is obvious that the initiation of breast cancer as well as its transition toward distinct breast cancer ...

      Predictive QSAR workflow for the in silico identification and screening of novel HDAC inhibitors 

      Melagraki, G.; Afantitis, Antreas; Sarimveis, H.; Koutentis, Panayiotis Andreas; Kollias, G.; Igglessi-Markopoulou, O. (2009)
      A linear Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationship (QSAR) is developed in this work for modeling and predicting HDAC inhibition by 5-pyridin-2-yl- thiophene-2-hydroxamic acids. In particular, a five-variable model is ...

      Reversal of ER-β silencing by chromatin modifying agents overrides acquired tamoxifen resistance 

      Pitta, Chara A.; Papageorgis, P.; Charalambous, Christina; Constantinou, Andreas I. (2013)
      The purpose of this work is to determine the molecular mechanisms underlying tamoxifen resistance. We show here that ER-β is epigenetically silenced in a cell line with acquired tamoxifen resistance (MCF-7/TAM-R) and this ...
