17046751 Our findings suggest that the presence of EndoG in non-invasive breast cancer cells determines their sensitivity to apoptosis, which may be taken into consideration for developing the chemotherapeutic strategy for cancer treatment.
16133872 EndoG forms complexes with AIF and FEN-1 but not with PCNA. Heat shock proteins 70 interact with EndoG and are involved in the regulation of its activity.
