The removal of superfluous and unwanted cells is a critical part of animal development. In insects the steroid hormone ecdysone, the focus of this review, is an essential regulator of developmental transitions, including molting and metamorphosis. Like other steroid hormones, ecdysone works via nuclear hormone receptors to direct spatial and temporal regulation of gene transcription including genes required for cell death. During insect metamorphosis, pulses of ecdysone orchestrate the deletion ...

Human telomerase RNA component hTERC comprises multiple motifs that contribute to hTERC biogenesis, holoenzyme activity, and enzyme recruitment to telomeres. hTERC contains several guanine tracts (G-tracts) at its 5′-end, but its associated proteins and potential roles in telomerase function are still poorly understood. The heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoproteins F, H1, and H2 (hnRNP F/H) are splicing factors that preferentially bind to poly(G)-rich sequences RNA. Here, we demonstrate that hnRN...
The treatment of castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) still faces many challenges. Docetaxel is a chemotherapeutic drug commonly used in CRPC patients. However, docetaxel-based chemotherapy usually causes docetaxel resistance, partially due to the resistance of CRPC cells to docetaxel-induced apoptosis. Here, we report that the deubiquitinating enzyme ubiquitin-specific protease 33 (USP33) inhibits docetaxel-induced apoptosis of prostate cancer cells, including androgen-independent prosta...
Autophagy allows for cellular material to be delivered to lysosomes for degradation resulting in basal or stress-induced turnover of cell components that provide energy and macromolecular precursors. These activities are thought to be particularly important in cancer where both tumor-promoting and tumor-inhibiting functions of autophagy have been described. Autophagy has also been intricately linked to apoptosis and programmed cell death, and understanding these interactions is becoming increasi...
Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is defined as a category of aggressive malignancies arising from the squamous epithelium of various organs. Resistance to chemotherapies is a common feature of SCCs, which leads to a poor prognosis among SCC patients. Recently, studies have illustrated the essential tumor suppressive role of ARID1A in several cancer types, but its role in SCCs remains unclear. Cancer stemness has been recognized as a main reason for tumorigenesis and is commonly correlated with chem...
