Sorafenib is a multi-target oral anticancer drug used as first-line treatment for patients with advanced human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). But the exact mechanism of sorafenib involved in HCC treatment is not clear yet. In this study, a comparative proteomic approach was performed to identify novel sorafenib-related proteins in HCC. Proteomes of HepG2(More)
Metastasis is the leading cause of death in breast cancer (BC) patients. However, until now, the mechanisms of BC metastasis remain elusive. Cullin3 is a highly conserved Cullin family member present in the genomes of all eukaryotes, which has been proposed as an oncogene in many types of tumors; however, its role and underlying mechanisms in BC remain(More)
To minimize the side effects and enhance the efficiency of chemotherapy, a novel folate-decorated hydrophilic cationic star-block terpolymer, [poly(l-glutamic acid γ-hydrazide)-b-poly(N,N-dimethylaminopropyl methacrylamide)]3-g-poly(ethylene glycol) ((PGAH-b-PDMAPMA)3-g-PEG), with disulfide linkages between the PEG and PDMAPMA blocks, was developed for(More)
To minimize the side effect of chemotherapy, a novel reduction/pH dual-sensitive drug nanocarrier, based on PEGylated dithiodipropionate dihydrazide (TPH)-modified hyaluronic acid (PEG-SS-HA copolymer), was developed for targeted delivery of doxorubicin (DOX) to hepatocellular carcinoma. The copolymer was synthesized by reductive amination via Schiff's base(More)
ABCB5 belongs to the ATP-binding cassette (ABC) superfamily, which is recognized for playing a role in the failure of chemotherapy. ABCB5 has also been found to be overexpressed at the transcriptional level in a number of cancer subtypes, including breast cancer. However, the exact mechanism ABCB5 uses on cancer cell metastasis is still unclear. In the(More)
The present study was to examine the effect of Tripartite motif 16 (TRIM16) on epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and metastasis in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cells, and its clinical significance in NSCLC. The correlation of TRIM16 expression and clinical features of NSCLC was analyzed in paraffin-embedded archived normal lung tissues and NSCLC(More)
UNLABELLED To mimic the structure of breast tumor microenvironment, novel double-network poly(Nɛ-acryloyl L-lysine)/hyaluronic acid (pLysAAm/HA) hydrogels were fabricated by a two-step photo-polymerization process for in vitro three-dimensional (3D) cell culture. The morphology, mechanical properties, swelling and degradation behaviors of pLysAAm/HA(More)
A comb-like amphiphilic copolymer methoxypolyethylene glycol-graft-poly(L-lysine)-block-poly(L-phenylalanine) (mPEG-g-PLL-b-Phe) was successfully synthesized. To synthesize mPEG-g-PLL-b-Phe, diblock copolymer PLL-b-Phe was first synthesized by successive ring-opening polymerization of α-amino acid N-carboxyanhydrides followed by the removal of(More)
In bone tissue engineering, a qualified scaffold should provide a three-dimensional porous structure mimicking the extracellular matrix of bone except good biological properties. In this study, biomorphic silk fibroin (SF) scaffolds were fabricated from cane by an innovative biotemplating-negative mold process. The physicochemical properties, in vitro(More)
Metastasis is the leading cause of death in breast cancer (BC) patients. However, until now, the mechanisms of BC metastasis remain elusive. GATA6 is a member of the GATA transcription factor family that plays critical regulatory roles in tissue development, which has been proposed as an oncogene in many types of tumors; however, its role and underlying(More)
