Circulating tumor cells (CTCs), which have stem cell-like characteristics, might play a crucial role in cancer metastasis. CD44 has been identified as gastric cancer (GC) stem cell (CSC) marker. Here, the prognostic significance of CD44-positive CTCs in GC patients was investigated. CTCs were detected in 27 of 45 GC patients. The presence of CTCs was(More)
The purpose of this research was to examine the relationship between big mitogen-activated protein kinase 1 (BMK1) and miRNA miR-429 and to determine the effect of miR-429 on glioma invasiveness. Immunohistochemistry was used to evaluate BMK1 expression in glioma tissues. Real-time PCR was used to measure the expression of miR-429 and other RNAs. Western(More)
Upflow anaerobic sludge blanket/bed (UASB) has been recognized as a robust technology arousing wide concern in wastewater treatment research recently. In this study, a bibliometric analysis was performed to evaluate the publications on UASB research from 1983 to 2012, based on the Science Citation Index databases. It was identified that a total of 2363(More)
Glioblastomas are the most aggressive forms of primary brain tumors with their tendency to invade surrounding healthy brain tissues, rendering them largely incurable. In this report, we used small-interference RNA technology to knock down the expression of protein kinase C (PKC) zeta, which resulted in specific and massive impairment of glioblastoma cell(More)
BACKGROUND The incidence of malignant melanoma (MM) was occurring at a faster rate than for most neoplasm worldwide, and melanoma metastasis is still the most formidable problem. So it is necessarily to find some biomarkers associated with melanoma metastasis. METHODS In our study, 8 spontaneous lung metastatic mice models were created by B16F10(More)
There is increasing evidence that Special AT-rich sequence-binding protein 1 (SATB1) is aberrantly expressed in several cancers and is correlated with clinicopathologic parameters in these tumors. In this study, we showed over-expression of SATB1 in 80 cases of colorectal cancer and in 3 colorectal cancer cell lines and found expression levels were strongly(More)
Oxidative and immune attacks from the environment or microglia have been implicated in the loss of dopaminergic neurons of Parkinson's disease. The role of IgG which is an important immunologic molecule in the process of Parkinson's disease has been unclear. Evidence suggests that IgG can be produced by neurons in addition to its traditionally recognized(More)
AvrRxo1, a type III effector from Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzicola (Xoc) which causes bacterial leaf streak (BLS) in rice, can be recognised by non-host resistance protein Rxo1. It triggers a hypersensitive response (HR) in maize. Little is known regarding the virulence function of AvrRxo1. In this study, we determined that AvrRxo1 is able to suppress the(More)
Despite accumulating evidence suggesting a critical role of signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) and Survivin in human bladder cancer, the effects of silencing these genes on the proliferation of T24 bladder carcinoma cells remain unknown. Here, we investigated the inhibitory effects of STAT3 or Survivin silencing on the in vitro and(More)
