Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) regulate gene expression by acting with microRNAs (miRNAs). However, the roles of cancer specific lncRNA and its related competitive endogenous RNAs (ceRNA) network in hepatocellular cell carcinoma (HCC) are not fully understood. The lncRNA profiles in 372 HCC patients, including 372 tumor and 48 adjacent non-tumor liver(More)
Germline mutations of the LKB1 tumor suppressor gene result in Peutz-Jeghers syndrome (PJS) characterized by intestinal hamartomas and increased incidence of epithelial cancers. Inactivating mutations in LKB1 have also been found in certain sporadic human cancers and with particularly high frequency in lung cancer. LKB1 has now been demonstrated to play a(More)
CONTEXT The incidence of papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) shows a predominance in females, with a male:female ratio of 1:3, and none of the known risk factors are associated with gender difference. Increasing evidence indicates a role of estrogen in thyroid tumorigenesis, but the mechanism involved remains largely unknown. OBJECTIVE This study aimed to(More)
