PROJECT TITLE

“Regenerative Mechanisms for Health" ReMedy

SUBPROJECT TITLE:

“Evaluation of MLK4 signalling in breast cancer”

PROJECT LEADER

Anna Marusiak, PhD

SUBPROJECT DESCRIPTION

In our laboratory we investigate the aspects of signal transduction in cancer. Our new project is focused on evaluating the role of MLK4 signalling in the interactions between the tumor microenvironment and breast cancer cells. MLK4 is a serine/threonine kinase that plays an important role in various cellular processes including proliferation, differentiation, migration of cells. We have recently proven that MLK4
is highly expressed in breast carcinoma and that it contributes to invasive phenotype of breast cancer cells.
