Isolated from Elephantopus scaber L., a Chinese medicinal herb that is widely used to prevent and treat cancers in China, isodeoxyelephantopin (ESI) exerted antitumor effects on several cancer cells. However, its antitumor mechanism is still not clear. In this study, we found that ESI could induce G2/M arrest and subsequently stimulate cell apoptosis in(More)
Under the guidance of the Chromosome-centric Human Proteome Project (C-HPP), (1, 2) we conducted a systematic survey of the expression status of genes located at human chromosome 20 (Chr.20) in three cancer tissues, gastric, colon, and liver carcinoma, and their representative cell lines. We have globally profiled proteomes in these samples with combined(More)
Genistein is a natural protein tyrosine kinase inhibitor that exerts anti-cancer effect by inducing G2/M arrest and apoptosis. However, the phosphotyrosine signaling pathways mediated by genistein are largely unknown. In this study, we combined tyrosine phosphoprotein enrichment with MS-based quantitative proteomics technology to globally identify(More)
The latent membrane protein (LMP1) encoded by Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) has been suggested to be one of the major oncogenic factors in EBV-mediated carcinogenesis. RNA-cleaving DNA enzymes are catalytic nucleic acids that bind and cleave a target RNA in a highly sequence-specific manner. In this study, we explore the potential of using DNAzymes as a(More)
Andrographolide-lipoic acid conjugate (AL-1) is a new in-house synthesized chemical entity, which was derived by covalently linking andrographolide with lipoic acid. However, its anti-cancer effect and cytotoxic mechanism remains unknown. In this study, we found that AL-1 could significantly inhibit cell viability of human leukemia K562 cells by inducing(More)
Genistein exerts its anticarcinogenic effects by inducing G2/M arrest and apoptosis of cancer cells. However, the precise molecular mechanism of action of genistein has not been completely elucidated. In this study, we used quantitative proteomics to identify the genistein-induced protein alterations in gastric cancer cells and investigate the molecular(More)
Isolated from soybeans, genistein is an isoflavonoid that exhibits anti-carcinogenic effects. Genistein could induce G2/M arrest and apoptosis of various cancer cells in vivo and in vitro. Although ERK1/2, AKT, p90RSK and NFκB were previously found to be regulated by genistein, most of signaling components in genistein-inhibited signaling pathways were(More)
Although microRNAs (miRNAs) have been reported to play an important role in carcinogenesis, their molecular mechanism remains largely unknown because of our limited understanding of miRNA target genes. miR-373 was found to be capable of promoting breast cancer invasion and metastasis, but only a target gene was experimentally identified on the basis of mRNA(More)
The infection of host cells by porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) leads to extensive modulation of the gene expression levels of target cells. To uncover the pathogenesis and virus-host interactions of PCV2, a quantitative proteomic study using the stable isotope labeling with amino acids in cell culture (SILAC), coupled with mass spectrometry, was performed(More)
