Somatostatins are peptide hormones that regulate diverse cellular processes, such as neurotransmission, cell proliferation, apoptosis, and endocrine signaling as well as inhibiting the release of many hormones and other secretory proteins. SSTR1 is a member of the superfamily of somatostatin receptors possessing seven-transmembrane segments. Aberrant(More)
Krüppel-like zinc-finger transcription factor 5 (KLF5), known as BTEB2 or IKLF, has several biological functions that involve cell proliferation, development and apoptosis. Previous studies demonstrated that BTEB2 had anti-apoptotic effect in multiple diseases such as esophageal cancer and non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLCs). However, the distribution and(More)
Exploring effective drugs that are capable of promoting nerve regeneration has gained much attention. Ginsenoside Re (Re) is the main ingredient of ginseng berries and roots. Research in the area has shown that ginsenoside Re exhibits multiple pharmacological activities via different mechanisms both in vivo and in vitro. But the potential therapeutic(More)
Poly(C)-binding proteins (PCBPs), also known as RNA-binding proteins, interact in a sequence-specific fashion with single-stranded poly(C). It was reported that PCBP2 contributed to gastric cancer proliferation and survival through miR-34a, and knockdown of PCBP2 inhibited glioma proliferation through inhibition of cell cycle progression. In addition, PCBP2(More)
Vascular cell adhesion molecule 1 (VCAM1) is a member of the Immunoglobulin superfamily and encodes a cell surface sialoglycoprotein expressed in cytokine-activated endothelium. This type I membrane protein mediates leukocyte-endothelial cell adhesion, facilitates the downstream signaling, and may play a role in the development of artherosclerosis and(More)
Overexpression of chaperonin containing t-complex polypeptide 1 (TCP1), or CCT, has been reported in various classes of malignancies. However, little is known about the expression of t-complex protein subunits TCP1theta (CCT8) in gliomas. In this study, the expression of CCT8 protein was detected using blotting analysis and immunohistochemistry. CCT8 was(More)
