Endometrial cancer (EC) is the most common gynecologic malignancy, but the molecular events involved in the development and progression of EC remain unclear. Certain microRNAs (miRNAs) and DICER1 play important roles in cell motility and survival. This study investigated the role of miR-130b and DICER1 in EC. We profiled miR-130b and DICER1 expression in(More)
Endometrial cancer (EC) is the most common gynecologic malignancy, but the molecular events involved in the development and progression of EC remain unclear. This study aimed to explore epigenetic modification of genes and miRNAs involved in EC development. Ishikawa and AN3CA cells were treated with 5’-Aza-2-deoxycytidine or histone deacetylase inhibitor.(More)
Endometrial cancer (EC) is the most common gynecologic malignancy, but the molecular events involved in the development and progression of EC remain unclear. P21-activated kinase 1 (Pak1) plays important roles in cell motility and survival. This study investigated the clinical significance of Pak1 expression and its(More)
BACKGROUND Ovarian cancer is the most common cause of gynecological cancer-associated death. Iatrogenic menopause might adversely affect the quality of life and health outcomes in young female cancer survivors. We evaluated whether postoperative hormone replacement therapy (HRT) had a negative influence on the progression-free survival (PFS) of patients(More)
Cross-talk between estrogen receptor alpha (ERα) and signal transduction pathways plays an important role in the progression of endometrial cancer (EC). Here, we show that 17β-estradiol (E2) stimulation increases p21-activated kinase 4 (Pak4) expression and activation in ER-positive EC cells. The estrogen-induced Pak4 activation is mediated via the PI3K/AKT(More)
