Circulating sphingosine-1-phosphate and erythrocyte sphingosine kinase-1 activity as novel biomarkers for early prostate cancer detection (2012)
Journal Article
Nunes, J., Naymark, M., Sauer, L., Muhammad, A., Keun, H., Sturge, J., …Pchejetski, D. (2012). Circulating sphingosine-1-phosphate and erythrocyte sphingosine kinase-1 activity as novel biomarkers for early prostate cancer detection. The British journal of cancer / Cancer Research Campaign, 106(5), (909-915). doi:10.1038/bjc.2012.14. ISSN 0007-0920

Background: Current markers available for screening normal populations and for monitoring prostate cancer (PCa) treatment lack sensitivity and selectivity. Sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) is a circulating lipid second messenger involved in cell growth... Read More

TGFβ1-Endo180-dependent collagen deposition is dysregulated at the tumour-stromal interface in bone metastasis (2011)
Journal Article
Caley, M. P., Kogianni, G., Adamarek, A., Gronau, J. H., Rodriguez-Teja, M., Fonseca, A., …Sturge, J. (2012). TGFβ1-Endo180-dependent collagen deposition is dysregulated at the tumour-stromal interface in bone metastasis. Journal of Pathology, 226(5), 775-783. doi:10.1002/path.3958

Cellular niches in adult tissue can harbour dysregulated microenvironments that become the driving force behind disease progression. The major environmental change when metastatic cells arrive in the bone is the destruction of mineralized type I coll... Read More

Fibrin monomer and fibrinopeptide B act additively to increase DNA synthesis in smooth muscle cells cultured from human saphenous vein (2001)
Journal Article
Sturge, J., Carey, N., Davies, A. H., & Powell, J. T. (2001). Fibrin monomer and fibrinopeptide B act additively to increase DNA synthesis in smooth muscle cells cultured from human saphenous vein. Journal of vascular surgery, 33(4), 847-853. https://doi.org/10.1067/mva.2001.111984

Purpose: We investigated the hypothesis that fibrinogen increased DNA synthesis (and cell proliferation) of smooth muscle cells (SMCs) cultured from human saphenous vein and that the increased DNA synthesis was attenuated when cells were cultured on... Read More

Regulation by fibrinogen and its products of intercellular adhesion molecule-1 expression in human saphenous vein endothelial cells (2000)
Journal Article
Harley, S. L., Sturge, J., & Powell, J. T. (2000). Regulation by fibrinogen and its products of intercellular adhesion molecule-1 expression in human saphenous vein endothelial cells. Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology, 20(3), 652-658. https://doi.org/10.1161/01.atv.20.3.652

It has been reported that fibrinogen may act as a bridging ligand, binding to intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) on human umbilical vein endothelial cells and to Mac-1 on THP-1 cells (a monocytic cell line) to increase adhesion. In this study... Read More
