BACKGROUND MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been implicated in cancer initiation and progression via their ability to affect expression of genes and proteins that regulate cell proliferation and/or cell death. Transcription of the three miRNA miR-34 family members was recently found to be directly regulated by p53. Among the target proteins regulated by miR-34 are(More)
Patients with cancer frequently develop autoantibodies. The identification of tumor autoantigens may have utility in early cancer diagnosis and immunotherapy. In this study, we used serological proteomics analysis (SERPA) to identify tumor proteins that elicit humoral response in colorectal cancer (CRC). The CRC cell line HCT116 was used as a source of(More)
Sera from cancer patients contain tumor-specific autoantibodies directly against antigenic proteins. The identification of tumor autoantigens may have utility in cancer diagnosis, prognosis, and therapy. In this study, we used immunoproteomics analysis to identify tumor proteins that elicit humoral response in colorectal cancer (CRC). The CRC cell line(More)
The expression levels of the RNA-binding protein Hu antigen (HuR) and vascular endothelial growth factor-C (VEGF-C) were examined immunohistochemically in 81 non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLC) and 15 benign human lung tissues. HuR showed a nuclear overexpression in 82.7% (67/81) of NSCLC specimens. Cytoplasmic immunoreactivity for HuR was observed in 45.7%(More)
Dually targeted mitochondrial proteins usually possess an unconventional mitochondrial targeting sequence (MTS), which makes them difficult to predict by current bioinformatics approaches. Human apurinic/apyrimidinic endonuclease (APE1) plays a central role in the cellular response to oxidative stress. It is a dually targeted protein preferentially residing(More)
Caffeic acid phenethyl ester, an active component of propolis, has been implicated in the regulation of cell growth and apoptosis, although the exact mechanism of this activity has not been elucidated. In this study, we explored the effects of caffeic acid phenethyl ester on growth, cell cycle, apoptosis and beta-catenin/T-cell factor signaling in human(More)
Resistance to platinum is a major limitation for the treatment of ovarian cancer. In an effort to overcome the platinum resistance problem in ovarian cancer treatment, we explored the correlation between cisplatin resistance and the human AP endonuclease (APE1 or Ref-1). APE1/Ref-1 is a multifunctional protein that is not only an essential enzyme in base(More)
A simple and sensitive method for in situ amplified electrochemical immunoassay of human serum IgG has been developed by using double-codified nanosilica particles as labels based on horseradish peroxidase-doped nanosilica particles (HRP-SiO(2)) with the conjugation of anti-IgG antibodies (anti-IgG-SiO(2)-HRP). With the sandwich-type immunoassay format, the(More)

BACKGROUND Vascular endothelial growth factor-C(VEGF-C) plays a critical role in tumor-induced lymphangiogenesis and contributes to lymph node metastasis.Human antigen R(HuR) is one of the firstly identified RNA-binding proteins.It can increase the stability of a variety of growth factors and cytokines and upregulate protein expression.The aim of this study(More)
