In a social network, users hold and express positive and negative attitudes (e.g. support/opposition) towards other users. Those attitudes exhibit some kind of binary relationships among the users, which play an important role in social network analysis. However, some of those binary relationships are likely to be latent as the scale of social network(More)
Juglanthraquinone C (1,5-dihydroxy-9,10-anthraquinone-3-carboxylic acid, JC), a naturally occurring anthraquinone isolated from the stem bark of Juglans mandshurica, shows strong cytotoxicity in various human cancer cells in vitro. Here, we first performed a structure–activity relationship study of six anthraquinone compounds (JC, rhein, emodin,(More)
Testes-specific protease 50 (TSP50) is aberrantly expressed in many cancer biopsies and plays a crucial role in tumorigenesis, which make it a potential cancer therapeutic target for drug discovery. Here, we constructed a firefly luciferase reporter driven by the TSP50 gene promoter to screen natural compounds capable of inhibiting the expression of TSP50.(More)
OBJECTIVE To present pathological and molecular characterizations of a rare case that was diagnosed as nasal-type natural killer (NK)/T cell lymphoma primarily arising in the cervix. CASE REPORT An Asian woman was admitted to hospital with a hysteromyoma, and laparotomy was performed. A large tumor of the uterus was found, which was limited to the cervix.(More)
Interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) are multifunctional cytokines that regulate immune responses, cell proliferation, and tumour development and progression, which frequently have functionally opposing roles. The cellular responses to both cytokines are activated via the Janus kinase/signal transducer and activator of transcription(More)
BACKGROUND Testes-specific protease 50 (TSP50), a newly discovered threonine enzyme, has similar amino acid sequences and enzymatic structures to those of many serine proteases. It may be an oncogene. TSP50 is up-regulated in breast cancer epithelial cells, and ectopic expression of TSP50 in TSP50-deficient Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells has been found(More)
Highly potent N-substituted delta-lactams have been rationally designed and synthesized by a concise route with a one-pot tandem reaction as key step. These iminosugars show weak inhibition of wild-type beta-glucocerebrosidase but 3- to 6-fold increases in mutant enzyme activity (N370S).
Insulin-like growth factor 1 receptor (IGF1R) is an attractive drug target for cancer therapy and research on IGF1R inhibitors has had success in clinical trials. A particular challenge in the development of specific IGF1R inhibitors is interference from insulin receptor (IR), which has a nearly identical sequence. A few potent inhibitors that are selective(More)
Juglanthraquinone C (JC), a naturally occurring anthraquinone extracted from Juglans mandshurica, could induce apoptosis of cancer cells. This study aims to investigate the detailed cytotoxicity mechanism of JC in HepG2 and BEL-7402 cells. The Affymetrix HG-U133 Plus 2.0 arrays were first used to analyze the mRNA expression exposed to JC or DMSO in HepG2(More)
