Decapping is a key step in mRNA turnover. However, the composition and regulation of the human decapping complex is poorly understood. Here, we identify three proteins that exist in complex with the decapping enzyme subunits hDcp2 and hDcp1: hEdc3, Rck/p54, and a protein in decapping we name Hedls. Hedls is important in decapping because it enhances the(More)
Background:MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding RNAs, which regulate mRNA translation/decay, and may serve as biomarkers. We characterised the expression of miRNAs in clinically sampled oral and pharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC and PSCC) and described the influence of human papilloma virus (HPV).Methods:Biopsies obtained from 51 patients with(More)
BACKGROUND The role of human papillomavirus (HPV) in colorectal cancer has been widely studied with conflicting results. We performed a systematic review and a meta-analysis to estimate the prevalence of HPV in colorectal adenocarcinomas and adenomas, and test the potential association. METHODS The pooled HPV prevalence was estimated using a random(More)
OBJECTIVE The role of human papillomavirus (HPV) in the pathogenesis of ovarian cancer is controversial, and conflicting results have been published. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to estimate the prevalence of HPV in epithelial ovarian cancer tissue. MATERIAL AND METHODS Observational studies published until 4 March 2013 were(More)
OBJECTIVE Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a frequent opportunistic viral pathogen in patients with AIDS leading to retinitis and other serious manifestations. CMV disease may be successfully treated. Prophylactic antiviral therapy has been shown to reduce the risk of CMV disease if initiated early. We evaluated PCR and the antigenemia tests as methods for early(More)
Transcription of the human papillomavirus type 16 (HPV-16) genome is controlled by several promoters; the P(97) promoter is considered to be the main one. An additional promoter has been identified within the E7 ORF as well as an antisense promoter just upstream of the L2 ORF. The significance of these promoters for early and late gene expression and their(More)
Background:Several environmental factors have been associated with increased risks for cervical cancer. We examined whether reproductive history, contraceptive use, or sexual behaviour increase the risk for cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 3 or worse (CIN3+) among women with persistent human papillomavirus (HPV) infection.Methods:A population-based(More)
The small hydrophobic E5 protein of Human Papillomavirus type 16 (HPV16) binds to the 16-kDa subunit of the V-H+-ATPase. This binding has been suggested to interfere with acidification of late endocytic structures. We here used video microscopy, ratio imaging and confocal microscopy of living C127 fibroblasts to study the effects of E5. Various endocytic(More)
OBJECTIVE HPV is a common sexually transmitted infection and is considered to be a necessary cause of cervical cancer. The anatomical proximity to the cervix has led researchers to investigate whether Human Papillomavirus (HPV) has a role in the etiology of endometrial cancer. METHODS We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to investigate the(More)
