Gary S. Stein

Professor

Department of Cell Biology

University of Massachusetts Medical School

United States

Biography

The central theme of Gary Stein’s research has been to discover mechanisms controlling proliferation and differentiation emphasizing compromised regulation linked with disease. His lab characterizes transcriptional regulation that mediates cell cycle control, focusing on molecular mechanisms regulating gene expression at the G1/S phase transition in normal and tumor cells and the abbreviated pluripotent cell cycle in human embryonic stem cells. He has a major commitment to investigating bone tissue specific gene expression, including microRNA-mediated control, within the context of skeletal development and bone remodeling as well as aberrations that accompany the onset and progression of skeletal disease. The Stein lab is defining functional relationships between the subnuclear organization of regulatory proteins and gene expression, pursuing mechanisms that support combinatorial organization and assembly of regulatory machinery in nuclear microenvironments and epigenetic control of cell fate and lineage commitment in biological control and cancer.

ERG is a transcriptional factor, endothelial permeability factor and also a stem cell factor and is involved in 50-80% of Prostate cancers, Ewing sarcoma and also leukemias (AML). Other notable ETS genes discovered and studied by Dr Reddy include human Fli-1 (involved in 80% of Ewing family of tumors, Leukemias and Prostate cancer), EWS-Fli-1 (involved in 90% of Ewing Sarcoma, Pediatric cancer), EWS-erg (involved in Ewing Sarcoma), TLS-erg (involved in Acute Myeloid Leukemia), EWS (involved in multiple cancers), TLS/FUS (involved in multiple cancers), ELK-1 (Drs Reddy and Rao named this gene as ETS Like Gene, published in prestigious journals Science and Nature) and EWS-ATF-1 (malignant Melanoma of Soft Parts/Clear cell sarcoma). Dr Reddy and his group have also discovered novel post-translational mechanism mediated by BRCA2 in Breast Cancer cells that will have global effect on the Gene Expression, Protein turnover, Cell Death, Cancer and other Human diseases. Dr Reddy and his group have shown that ERG and FLI-1 proteins involved in several cancers are responsible for making cancer cells resistant to chemo-therapeutic agents. They are targeting these onco-proteins or their functions to develop novel targeted therapeutic agents. Using this strategy, they have developed several novel therapeutic agents (patent being submitted) that target Prostate cancer, Ewing Sarcoma, Breast cancer (including Triple Negative Breast Cancer), Pancreatic cancer, Ovarian cancer, cervical cancer, colorectal cancer, pancreatic cancer etc. These small molecules appear to be targeted therapeutic agents with no or little effect on normal cells. Dr Reddy received two grants from DOD to study on two targeted therapeutic agents against prostate cancer. Dr Reddy and his colleagues have also shown that anti-epileptic drug Valproic acid (VPA) targets ERG-positive Prostate cancers and Ewing Sarcoma and identified the molecular mechanism of action of VPA on ERG/Fli-1 associated cancer. Recently, they have identified novel ways by which ERG/ETS oncoproteins target different signaling pathways that leads to prostate and other cancers (leukemias, lymphomas and sarcomas). Dr Reddy and his colleagues have identified novel molecular mechanism of activation of TGF beta–signaling pathway by ERG oncoprotein in prostate cancer. Recently, Dr Reddy and his colleagues have shown that ETV1 onco-protein induces certain kinases in cancer cells which deregulate the critical Wnt/beta catenin pathway. They have also identified therapeutic agent that interferes with this process. They have also demonstrated that this therapeutic agent targets these cancer cells effectively (manuscript in press, 2016). These therapeutic agents will have a profound impact on prevention and treatment of prostate cancer which may help to reduce health disparity seen in minority prostate cancer patients. Recently, Dr Reddy’s group decoded non-coding DNA and its non-coding RNA and discovered novel tumor suppressors which will revolutionize the landscape of biology, diagnosis and therapy (In press, 2017, www.reddyesp.com).

Publication Charges

Genetics and Genomics is an Open Access journal and we do not charge the end user when accessing a manuscript or any article. This allows the scientific community to view, download, distribution of an article in any medium, provided that the original work is properly cited, under the term of "Creative Commons Attribution License".

In line with other open access journals we provide a flat fee submission structure on the acceptance of a peer-reviewed article which covers in part the entirety of the publication pathway (the article processing charge). The process includes our maintenance, submission and peer review systems and international editing, publication and submission to global indexing and tracking organisations and archiving to allow instant access to the whole article and associated supplementary documents. We also have to ensure enough investment to secure a sustainable model which ethically, legally and financially stable.

The publication charge for Genetics and Genomics is £ (GBP) 1099.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Why do we charge?

All articles published in Science Repository are open access.
