Hyaluronic acid (HA), a glycosaminoglycan with high molecular weight, has been reported to promote cell proliferation and serves as an important extracellular matrix component. The aim of this study was to in vitro investigate whether HA is able to reduce reactive oxygen species (ROS)-induced heart ischemia-reperfusion injury and activate the… (More)
Currently, the most effective agent against pancreatic cancer is gemcitabine (GEM), which inhibits tumor growth by interfering with DNA replication and blocking DNA synthesis. However, GEM-induced drug resistance in pancreatic cancer compromises the therapeutic efficacy of GEM. To investigate the molecular mechanisms associated with GEM-induced resistance,… (More)
The oral cancer cell line OC3-I5 with a highly invasive ability was selected and derived from an established OSCC line OC3. In this study, we demonstrated that matrix metalloproteinases protein MMP-13 was up-regulated in OC3-I5 than in OC3 cells. We also observed that expression of epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) markers including Twist, p-Src,… (More)
Authors and Oncotarget editors agree to retract the article " MMP-13 is Involved in Oral Cancer Cell Metastasis " after concerns regarding data duplication in multiple figures were confirmed through an internal investigation. The authors of this manuscript extend their sincere apologies to the scientific community.
