HOX antisense intergenic RNA (HOTAIR), a long non-coding RNA, plays an important role in the development of many types of cancers. Its function in acute leukemia (AL), however, has not been examined. The present study investigated the role of HOTAIR and its downstream genes in AL, and determined whether it could act as a molecular marker for prediction of(More)
The present study was designed to investigate the relationship among epigenetic changes in Wnt antagonists, histone H4K20me1 and the expression of tumor-suppressor genes in acute leukemia (AL) to better understand the pathogenesis of leukemia. Quantitative reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) was performed to detect messenger RNA (mRNA)(More)
OBJECTIVE To detect the abnormal methylation of the CPG island in the suppressor gene promoter region of the Wnt signaling pathway in cell strain NB4 of the acute promyelocytic leukemia by using the bisulfite sequcucing PCR(BSP), to screan the hyper-methylated suppressor gene of the Wnt signaling pathway and to evaluatc the potency of BSP in the methylation(More)
