((b) day 5, (d) day 10) The quantitation of activated or phosphorylated ERKs for cells from 2 separate 24-year-old women and a 27-year-old woman was determined by normalization of phosphorylated ERKs to total ERKs after normalization to Cdk2 as a loading control and expressed as a percent of untreated control cells.
The following primary antibodies were used in this study: [alpha]-SMA, [alpha]1(I) procollagen, and fibronectin (Epitomics, San Francisco, CA, USA); TGF-[beta]RI, TGF-[beta]RII, PDGF-[beta]R, EGF-R, and Bcl-2 (Santa Cruz Biotechnology, Santa Cruz, CA, USA); cyclin A, cyclin B1, CDK1, CDK2, Bax, pro-caspase-9, cleaved-caspase-9, pro-caspase-8, cleaved-caspase-8, pro-caspase-7, cleaved-caspase-7, pro-caspase-3, cleaved-caspase-3, full-length PARP-1, cleaved-PARP-1, and [beta]-Actin (Cell Signaling Technology, Danvers, MA, USA).

The CDK2-proteasome-XPO1 cluster was enriched with pharmacological options, including the proteasome inhibitor bortezomib, which is available clinically, and CDK2 and XPO1 inhibitors, which are under active clinical trials for various tumor types (Figure 2(c)) [29,30]: XPO1 inhibitors have been used to target platinum-resistant ovarian tumors [31] and have been described as potentially inhibiting abnormal NFkB signaling [32].

Ectopic expression of circ-Foxo3 can result in the formation of the circ-Foxo3-p21-CDK2 ternary complex, arising from binding circ-Foxo3 to cell cycle proteins CDK2 and p21.
Subsequently, E2F activates the transcription of CycE, which forms a complex with Cdk2 to further remove Rb repression, establishing a positive feedback loop.
p21 contains independent binding sites for cyclin and cdk2: both sites are required to inhibit cdk2 kinase activity.
This effect was observed in other cancers (Xiang et al., 2011) where lovastatin inhibited cell proliferation in ATC strains aggressive thyroid cancer in vitro, raising the level of p27 protein, which inhibits the activity of CDK2 holding the cells in [G.sub.1] phase.
