The latent membrane protein 1 (LMP1) of Epstein–Barr virus (EBV), a viral oncogene, is essential for transformation of resting B cells by the virus. We previously demonstrated that LMP1 could repress DNA repair in p53-wild-type and p53-deficient human epithelial cells. In this study, using a host cell reactivation (HCR) assay, we demonstrated that(More)
The latent membrane protein 1 (LMP1) of Epstein–Barr virus (EBV) is a viral oncogene and it is essential for the transformation of resting B cells by the virus. The protein acts as a ligand-less membrane receptor and triggers numerous cellular signaling pathways. Cellular transformation frequently has been associated with genomic instability. To investigate(More)
The Epstein-Barr virus nuclear antigen 2 (EBNA2) plays a key role in transformation of B-lymphocytes mediated by Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and can induce tumor formation in transgenic mice. However, the precise mechanism underlying EBNA2-mediated tumorigenesis remains elusive. Here, we report that EBNA2 can compromise mitotic spindle checkpoint (MSC) induced(More)
The International Agency for Research on Cancer declared that areca nut was carcinogenic to human. Areca nut is the main component of betel quid (BQ), which is commonly consumed in Asia. Epidemiological studies have shown that BQ chewing is a predominant risk factor for oral and pharyngeal cancers. It has been known that areca nut is genotoxic to human(More)
A rapid, sensitive, and accurate laboratory diagnostic test is needed for distinguishing Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV) from other diseases featuring similar clinical symptoms and also for preventing potential outbreaks. In this study, a TaqMan reverse transcription (RT)-polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay was developed for rapid detection and(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the involvement of inflammation in the development of endometriosis. DESIGN Case-control study to investigate the association between endometriosis and four inflammation-related genes: interleukin (IL)-6, IL-10, IL-1 beta, and cyclooxygenase-2. SETTING University hospital. PATIENT(S) We had 196 cases with pathologically proved(More)
Bladder cancer is the fourth most common type of cancer in men (ninth in women) in the United States. Cisplatin is an effective agent against the most common subtype, urothelial carcinoma. However, the development of chemotherapy resistance is a severe clinical problem for the successful treatment of this and other cancers. A better understanding of the(More)
The network of stemness genes and oncogenes in human patient-specific reprogrammed cancer stem cells (CSCs) remains elusive, especially in liver cancer. HepG2-derived induced pluripotent stem cell-like cells (HepG2-iPS-like cells) were generated by introducing Yamanaka factors and the knockdown vector shTP53. They exhibited features of stemness and a higher(More)
Resistance to chemotherapeutic drugs is one of the major challenges in the treatment of cancer. A better understanding of how resistance arises and what molecular alterations correlate with resistance is the key to developing novel effective therapeutic strategies. To investigate the underlying mechanisms of gemcitabine (Gem) resistance and provide possible(More)
