Second mitochondrial-derived activator of caspase (Smac) plays crucial roles in mitochondrial apoptosis pathways and promotes chemotherapy-induced apoptosis. In this study, Smac levels were examined in various lung cancer cell lines, and the effects of overexpressed Smac in the nonsmall-cell lung cancer cell line A549 were assayed by stable transfection of(More)
Hyperthermia is considered the fifth pillar of cancer treatment. It induces cancer cell apoptosis, however, its molecular mechanisms remain unclear. In the present study, the role of Survivin in hyperthermia-induced apoptosis in esophageal cancer was investigated. Different temperatures were used to treat EC109 esophageal cancer cells, and their viability(More)
BACKGROUND LCL161, a novel Smac mimetic, is known to have anti-tumor activity and improve chemosensitivity in various cancers. However, the function and mechanisms of the combination of LCL161 and paclitaxel in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) remain unknown. METHODS Cellular inhibitor of apoptotic protein 1 and 2 (cIAP1&2) expression in NSCLC tissues(More)
Fibronectin is involved in orchestrating many diverse cellular behaviors, including adhesion, invasion, differentiation, and proliferation and recently has also been shown to participate in the development of chemoresistance. In this study, we found that fibronectin expression was inversely correlated with clinical responses to docetaxel treatment in(More)
miR-367 is one of the most abundant miRNAs in human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) and is mainly involved in maintaining the pluripotency of stem cells. However, its role in cancer development remains poorly understood. In the present study, we explored the function and mechanism of the endogenous miR-367 in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). In the present(More)
X-linked inhibitor of apoptosis protein (XIAP) and second mitochondrial-derived activator of caspase (Smac) are two important prognostic biomarkers for cancer. They are negatively correlated in many types of cancer. However, their relationship is still unknown in lung cancer. In the present study, we found that there was a negative correlation between Smac(More)
We study the numerical solution of the Greeks of Asian options. In particular, we derive a close form solution of Δ of Asian geometric option and use this analytical form as a control to numerically calculate Δ of Asian arithmetic option, which is known to have no explicit close form solution. We implement our proposed numerical method and compare the(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the correlation among OTUD7B and NIK expression and the clinicopathological characteristics in NSCLC patients. METHODS One hundred and twenty patients were involved in this study. We detected OTUD7B and NIK expression by immunohistochemistry and analyzed their correlation with clinicopathological data. RESULTS The expression of(More)
