Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is a malignancy with poor prognosis. WNT/β-catenin signaling dysregulation, especially β-catenin overactivation and WNT antagonist silencing, is associated with RCC carcinogenesis and progression. However, the role of WNT ligands in RCC has not yet been determined. We screened 19 WNT ligands from normal kidney and RCC cell lines(More)
BACKGROUND Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) gene insertion/deletion (I/D) polymorphisms have been associated with acute coronary syndrome (ACS); however, several controversial results have also been found in different studied populations. This hospital-based, emergency room, case-control study in Taiwan retrospectively investigated 111 ACS patients, and(More)
Dysregulated β -catenin signaling is intricately involved in renal cell carcinoma (RCC) carcinogenesis and progression. Determining potential β -catenin signaling inhibitors would be helpful in ameliorating drug resistance in advanced or metastatic RCC. Screening for β -catenin signaling inhibitors involved in silico inquiry of the PubChem Bioactivity(More)
We aimed to elucidate whether and how BRCA1 mislocalization [including membranous nuclear (MN) forms and negative patterns] is associated with the occurrence and the prognosis of breast cancer in young Taiwanese women. A case-control study was carried out to enroll 84 patients with breast cancer and 81 patients with benign breast disease. The subcellular(More)
