Androgen receptor (AR) plays an important role in many kinds of cancers. However, the molecular mechanisms of AR in gastric cancer (GC) are poorly characterized. Here, we investigated the role of AR in GC cell migration, invasion and metastatic potential. Our data showed that AR expression was positively correlated with lymph node metastasis and late TNM(More)
Tumor initiation and growth depend on its microenvironment in which cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) in tumor stroma play an important role. Prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and interleukin (IL)-6 signal pathways are involved in the crosstalk between tumor and stromal cells. However, how PGE2-mediated signaling modulates this crosstalk remains unclear. Here, we(More)
AIM To investigate the expression pattern of gamma-synuclein in colorectal cancer (CRC) tissues, and to study the effects of gamma-synuclein on CRC cell line HCT116 biological features in vitro. METHODS The expression pattern of gamma-synuclein was determined in 54 CRC tissues and 30 tumor-matched nonneoplastic adjacent tissues (NNAT) 5 cm away from the(More)
micrornas (miRNAs) play an important role in a wide range of physiological and developmental processes by negatively regulating the expression of target genes at the post-transcriptional level. In this study, we investigated the differential miRNA expression signature between gastric cancer cells and normal gastric mucosa(More)
Recent evidence suggests that gamma-synuclein is abnormally expressed in a high percentage of tumor tissues of diversified cancer types, but rarely expressed in tumor-matched non-neoplastic adjacent tissues (NNAT). The molecular mechanism of CpG island demethylation may underlie aberrant gamma-synuclein expression. To fully understand the roles of aberrant(More)
Ten-Eleven Translocation 1 (TET1) is a member of ten eleven translocation enzymes, which convert 5-methylcytosine (5-mC) to 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5-hmC). TET1 can promote CpG islands demethylation in specific genes and often absent in various cancers. Herein, we found that TET1 expression and 5-hmC content were low in gastric tumors compared to its(More)
Mammary serine protease inhibitor B5 (SerpinB5) is a potential oncogene in gastric cancer (GC); however, the molecular mechanism by which SerpinB5 promotes oncogenesis remains elusive. In this study, SerpinB5-associated proteins were selected based on yeast two-hybrid screening and microarray analysis after RNA interference and were validated using(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify novel multi-drug resistance-related genes, and to explore the mechanisms of multi-drug resistance. METHODS Multi-drug resistant cell line Lovo/5-FU was established by incubation with increasing dose of 5-FU. The sensitivity to 5-FU and cis-diaminodichloroplatinum (CDDP) was measured by MTT assay. Two dimensional electrophoresis plus(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the interaction between SerpinB5 and MAFbx in gastric cancer cell and to identify the interaction sites. METHODS The interaction between SerpinB5 and MAFbx was screened and validated by yeast two-hybrid screening and co-immunoprecipitation. The expression of MAFbx was analyzed after SerpinB5 expression being modified by RNA(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the relationship between gamma-synuclein gene expression and CpG island demethylation in colorectal cancer(CRC), and the relationship between the demethylation and clinicopathological factors of CRC. METHODS The expression of gamma-synuclein mRNA was examined in 30 pairs of tumor tissues and tumor-matched non-neoplastic adjacent(More)
