Macrophage derived foam cells are actively involved in the initial phase of atherosclerosis. Uptake of modified lipoprotein such as oxidized LDL (oxLDL) is a critical step for foam cell formation. CD36 is the major receptor mediating oxLDL uptake by macrophage. However, the molecular mechanism underlying CD36 mediated oxLDL uptake remains unclear. Here we(More)
MSH6 (mutS homolog 6), one of the five key mismatch repair (MMR) genes, was found to play an important role in conferring resistance to alkylating agents-temozolomide (TMZ) in malignant glioma. This study aims to investigate whether genetic variations in MSH6 gene are associated with the survival outcomes in patients with malignant glioma. Each exon of the(More)
Melanoma is one of the most aggressive skin cancers and is well known for its high metastatic rate. Studies have shown that epithelial mesenchymal transition (EMT) is essential for melanoma cell metastasis. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying EMT are still not fully understood. We have shown that IRGM1, a member of immunity-related GTPase family(More)
