OBJECTIVE Adhesion molecules play an important role in tumour metastasis. The liver is a frequent target for the metastasis of several tumour types. However, virtually no liver-specific adhesion molecules have been described in terms of organ-specific metastasis. This study aimed to determine the role of liver sinusoidal endothelial cell lectin (LSECtin) in(More)
Increasing evidence reveals that aberrant expression of microRNA contributes to the development and progression of colon cancer, but the roles of microRNA-506 (miR-506) in colon cancer remain elusive. Here, we demonstrated that miR-506 was down-regulated in colon cancer tissue and cells and that miR-506 expression was inversely correlated with EZH2(More)
AIMS The EZH2 gene, which is expressed in various solid tumours, including liver cancer, can regulate gene transcription and promote the generation and progression of tumours. Our aim was to investigate the relationship between EZH2 and multidrug-resistance of human hepatic cancer cells using RNA interference. MAIN METHODS We detected the expression of(More)
The transcription factor p63 is a member of the p53 gene family that plays a complex role in cancer due to its involvement in epithelial differentiation, cell cycle arrest and apoptosis. MicroRNAs are a class of small, non-coding RNAs with an important regulatory role in various cellular processes, as well as in the development and progression of cancer. A(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the fifth most common malignancy in the world. It is of important significance to find biomarkers for the prognostic monitoring of HCC. The 14-3-3σ and EZH2 proteins are involved in cell cycle regulation and epigenetic silencing. We herein examined the significance of 14-3-3 σ and EZH2 in HCC (n = 167) by(More)
The P2X7 receptor (P2X7R) is a nucleotide receptor expressed predominantly on hemopoietic, bone, and epithelial cells. The P2X7R can be activated by extracellular ATP and induces the influx of calcium, releases cytokines, and participates in cell proliferation and apoptosis. CD44 is an adhesion molecule. The effects of CD44 include cell-cell and cell-matrix(More)
Altered microRNA (miRNA) associated with gastric cancer (GC) development and miR-17 and miR-106b were differentially expressed in GC tissues. This study detected serum levels of miR-17 and miR-106b expression in GC, benign gastric disease (BGD) and healthy controls to assess them as tumor markers for GC. Serum samples from 40 GC, 32 BGD (10 gastric ulcer,(More)
Accumulating evidence indicates that dysregulation of microRNA‑133b (miR‑133b) is an important step in the development of certain types of human cancer and contributes to tumorigenesis. Altered expression of miR‑133b has been reported in colon carcinoma, but its association with clinical stage in colorectal cancer (CRC) has remained elusive. Connective(More)
Emerging evidence has identified the vital role of long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) in the development of colorectal cancer. In this study, we aimed to investigate the role of lncRNA gastric carcinoma highly expressed transcript 1 (GHET1) in colorectal cancer. We analyzed the expression of GHET1 in colorectal cancer (CRC) tissues by using ISH. We found that(More)
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most common cancer with a very poor prognosis predominantly due to its high rate of tumor invasion and migration, and its resistance to anti‑epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) therapy. Although CRC has been widely studied, the underlying molecular mechanism remains to be elucidated. MicroRNA (miR)‑133b has been(More)
