MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have emerged as critical modulators of carcinogenesis and tumor progression. In the present work, we sought to identify the biological function of miR-155 as well as its underlying mechanism in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC). We examined the expression of miR-155 in clear cell RCC (ccRCC) and adjacent normal tissues and then(More)
Targeted drug decisions in metastatic renal cell carcinoma are exclusively made on the basis of clinical criteria. We investigated whether these biomarkers (HIF-1α, HIF-2α, CAIX, VEGF, VEGFR1, VEGFR2, VEGFR3, PDGFB, PDGFRA, PDGFRB, CD31, CD44, bcl-xL, KIT, p21, CXCR4, PTEN, (CSF)-1R, RET, and FLT-3) can predictive the different effects between sunitinib and(More)
To examine the prognostic role of inflammatory response biomarkers in sarcomatoid renal cell carcinoma (sRCC). From January 2004 to May 2015, 103 patients with sRCC were enrolled in this study. Preoperative neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR), derived neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (dNLR), platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR) and lymphocyte to monocyte ratio(More)
Objective To establish selenoprotein P, plasma 1 (SEPP1) gene recombinant lentiviral vector and investigate the effect of SEPP1 on the proliferation of human clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) cells. Methods cDNA sequence of SEPP1 was cloned from the total cDNA of HEK293T cells by PCR. Then, the cDNA fragment was combined with the pLV-EGFP(2A)Puro(More)
Bladder cancer has a considerable morbidity and mortality impact with particularly poor prognosis. Curcumin has been recently noticed as a polyphenolic compound separated from turmeric to regulate tumor progression. However, the precise molecular mechanism by which curcumin inhibits the invasion and metastasis of bladder cancer cells is not fully(More)
Metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) presents a poor prognosis and an unpredictable course. To date, no validated biomarkers can predict the outcome of RCC. Ongoing efforts are conducted to identify the molecular markers of RCC progression, as well as the targets for novel therapeutic approaches. RET is a tyrosine kinase receptor which has been(More)
Although overall downregulation of microRNAs (miRNAs) is a general feature of clear-cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC), several miRNAs are consistently upregulated, among which miR-122 was markedly increased in ccRCC tissues. This study aims to determine the functional importance and underlying mechanism of miR-122 in ccRCC metastasis. Here we demonstrate(More)
