Useful links on EGF(R)-mediated drug delivery

Case studies

  • Breast cancer epithelial stem cells switching and the risks of EGF(R)-targeted phosphorylation:
  • Receptor-associated tyrosine kinase signaling (SH1/SH2 ?) for targeted drug delivery to epithelial stem cells membranes?

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."
