Contents

EGF(R)-mediated drug delivery

  • First please see this paper for background info on EGF(R) targeting here.
  • The aim of this wiki document is to review the characterization of cancerogenic mutations occuring in multiple receptor-associated tyrosine kinase proteins targeting the EGF receptor and perhaps cholesterol based lipid rafts including stearic acid (monosaturated) and in fatty acids derived ligands.


Case studies

  • Breast cancer epithelial stem cells switching and the risks of EGF(R)-targeted phosphorylation:
  • Receptor-associated tyrosine kinase signaling (SH2/SH3) for targeted drug delivery to epithelial stem cells membranes?
    • Calmodulin-dependent protein kinase receptors (Ca2+) signal transduction linked to Alzheimer like neuronal dysregulation? (ie: PH based phospholipid dysregulation) ?
  • Endocannabinoids: Wet Blanket on Hippocampus Excitement
    • Hippocampal glutamatergic neuronal dysregulation from calcium-dependent signaling networks?
      • Etienne Robillard 08:56, 4 May 2012 (EDT): 420 like (CB1 receptors) to the rescue..? :)

TODO

  • Is programmed cell-death from cell-specific DNA based gene regulation via p53 gene/protein is leading to cell apoptosis? If so, could DNA programmed apoptosis result from aggregated nanoparticles to epithelial/endothelial stem cells membranes (ie: immunoglobin-like domain receptor) ?
  • Glycoproteins role in programmed cell division acting as a master toll-like switch for receptor-associated drug delivery? (ie: EGFR)
  • On lipid rafts: "Plasma membranes are heterogeneous and contain microdomains for lipid composition and receptors, especially in T and B lymphocytes and mast cells. Rafts are a way of concentrating receptors, the lipids and lipid tethered proteins together to provide the elements needed to activate secondary signals." (http://bioweb.wku.edu/courses/biol566/L19SignalPathnonRPTK.html)
  • Is the p53 gene dependent on genetical inheritance (DNA-protein interactions) to make epithelial stem cells vulnerable to cancerogenic mutations ?
