This study aimed to explore the effects of miR-21 and PTEN/Akt signaling pathway on TGF-β1-induced epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in gastric cancer (GC). GC tissues and adjacent tissues were collected from 83 patients. The qRT-PCR assay was performed to detect miR-21 expression. The expressions of PTEN, Akt and p-Akt were detected by(More)
Although mammary microcalcification is frequently observed and has been associated with poor survival in patients with breast cancer, the genesis of calcification remains unclear. Carbonic anhydrase I (CA1) has been shown to promote calcification by catalysing the hydration of CO2. This study aimed to determine whether CA1 was correlated with(More)
PADI4 (peptidyl deiminase isoform 4) is overexpressed in many tumor tissues and converts arginine residues to citrulline residues. This study used an Illumina SNP microarray and a TaqMan assay to determine the possible association of the PADI4 gene with various tumor risks. Both genotyping methods demonstrated significant associations between the tag SNPs(More)
BACKGROUND Peptidylarginine deiminase (PAD) catalyzes the conversion of arginine residues to citrulline residues, termed citrullination. Recent studies have suggested that PAD isoform 2 (PADI2) plays an important role in tumors, although its tumorigenic effect and mechanism are largely unknown. MATERIALS AND METHODS Immunohistochemistry and enzyme-linked(More)
A full-length acetylcholinesterase (AChE) cDNA sequence (Os-ace2.s) from insecticide-susceptible (S) parasitoid Oomyzus sokolowskii (Hymenoptera: Eulophidae) and a partial cDNA sequence (Os-ace2.r) from insecticide- resistant (R) O. sokolowskii were identified firstly. Both Os-ace2.s (encoding a protein of 639 amino acid residues) and Os-ace2.r (encoding a(More)
