HLA-G has been documented both in establishment of anti-tumour immune responses and in tumour evasion. To investigate the clinical relevance of HLA-G in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), expression status and potential significance of HLA-G in NSCLC were analysed. In this study, HLA-G expression in 101 NSCLC primary lesions and plasma soluble HLA-G(More)
Human leukocyte antigen (HLA) has been reported to be associated with the pathogenesis of autoimmune-associated idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (IDC). However, the HLA-G in this context is limited. In the current study, a total of 117 IDC patients and age and sex matched 401 unrelated healthy controls in a Chinese Han population were HLA-G genotyped for(More)
Soluble human leukocyte antigen-G (sHLA-G) functions as a multiple immunoregulator. A 14 bp insertion (+14 bp)/deletion (-14 bp) polymorphism in exon 8 of the HLA-G gene has been proposed to be associated with HLA-G mRNA stability and the expression of HLA-G. In the current study, a total of 150 normal Chinese Han population had been genotyped for the +14(More)
The clinical relevance of human leucocyte antigen-G (HLA-G) has been postulated in malignancies. Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a major contributor to cancer incidence and mortality worldwide; however, potential roles of HLA-G in HCC remain unknown. In the current study, HLA-G expression in 219 primary HCC lesions and their adjacent non-tumourous samples(More)
BACKGROUND Dyschromatosis symmetrica hereditaria (DSH) is an autosomal dominant pigmentary genodermatosis characterized by hyperpigmented and hypopigmented macules on the extremities, which has recently been mapped to an 11.6-cM interval on chromosome 1q11-21. So far, most cases of DSH have been reported in Japan and dermatologists around the world might(More)
The inhibitor of growth 2 (ING2) is a member of lNG family, involved in cell cycle regulation, DNA repair, apoptosis and senescence, and participating in chromatin remodeling and transcriptional regulation by histone modification. Recent researches suggest ING2 plays roles in carcinogenesis both as tumor suppressor gene and ongocene depending on tumor types(More)
Hereditary hemochromatosis (HH) is one of the most common autosomal recessive genetic disorders of iron metabolism in white populations, which leads to inappropriately high iron absorption. C282Y, H63D, and S65C are three major missense mutations of the hemochromatosis gene (HFE). In the present study, C282Y, H63D, and S65C mutations in 395 normal Chinese(More)
Arabidopsis thaliana is commonly regarded as a self-pollinated plant. We observed that the stigma in each flower of A. thaliana cannot be pollinated by its own pollen in the early phases of the flowering process, when the anthers had dehisced but the filaments were still too short for the pollen to be deposited on the stigma. In the later stages, after(More)
BACKGROUND Human leukocyte antigen-G (HLA-G) is an important immunotolerant which could be a part of the strategies applied by malignant cells applied to avoid host immunosurveillance. Aberrant expression of HLA-G has been found in ovarian carcinoma. The aim of this study was to evaluate the HLA-G expression in ovarian cancer tissues and to explore its(More)
Mesona chinensis is an economically important agricultural crop, primarily cultivated for making grass jelly. It was originally discovered in South China. We examined 18 cultivars, including cultivars from Guangdong, Fujian, and Guangxi, China, Taiwan, and Indonesia, and a hybrid (a cross between cultivars from Indonesia and Guangdong), based on RAPD(More)
