Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) displays higher risk of recurrence and distant metastasis. Due to absence of estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR) and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2), TNBC lacks clinically established targeted therapies. Therefore, understanding of the mechanism underlying the aggressive behaviors of TNBC(More)
In Taiwan, the average prevalence of congenital heart disease (CHD) is 13.08/1000 live births. Most children with CHD die before the age of 5 years; therefore, identifying treatment methods to extend the life of CHD patients is an important issue in clinical practice. The objective of this study is to evaluate the roles of hypoxia-inducible factor-1α(More)
Gemcitabine (GEM) resistance is a critical issue for pancreatic cancer treatment. The involvement of epigenetic modification in GEM resistance is still unclear. We established a GEM-resistant subline PANC-1-R from the parental PANC-1 pancreatic cancer cells and found the elevation of various chromatin-modifying enzymes including G9a in GEM-resistant cells.(More)
Pulmonary blastoma is a rare malignant lung tumor with aggressive behavior and dismal prognosis. It is extremely rare in children aged <18 years, and little is known about its genetic alteration and pathogenesis. Although surgical resection and adjuvant chemotherapy or radiotherapy have been applied in several cases, no standard treatment guidelines with(More)
Cellular schwannoma is an uncommon variant of benign peripheral nerve sheath tumors, but is commonly misdiagnosed as malignant peripheral sheath tumor (MPNST). Conventional methods that are used to distinguish cellular schwannoma from MPNST include immunohistochemistry (IHC) staining. However, most markers cannot precisely differentiate these 2 tumor types,(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a primary malignancy of the liver. Patients with HCC usually have poor prognosis and high mortality. It has been shown that carcinoembryonic antigen-related cell adhesion molecule 1 (CD66a) regulates cell signaling, proliferation, and tumor growth. The aim of this study is to analyze the expression and possible role of(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Neoadjuvant concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT) is a standard treatment of locally advanced colon cancer cell (CRC). In order to maximize efficacy and minimize toxicity, new drugs have been developed and used in combination with CCRT. Recently, it has been shown that G9a plays a role in mediating phenotypes of cancer stem cells(More)
The Mi-2/nucleosome remodeling and deacetylase (NuRD) complex play a role in silencing gene expression. CHD4, the core component of the NuRD complex, which cooperates with histone deacetylase in reducing tumor suppressor genes (TSGs). To dissect the mechanisms underlying cancer promotion, we clarify the role of CHD4 in cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor(More)
