BACKGROUND Glutathione S transferase pi (GSTP1) is a member of phase II detoxification enzymes as a major regulator of cell signaling in response to stress, hypoxia, growth factors, and other stimuli. The clinical role of GSTP1 in cancer is still unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate the serum GSTP1 level in patients with oral squamous cell(More)
Sulfonated (SO(3)H-bearing) activated carbon (AC-SO(3)H) was synthesized by an aryl diazonium salt reduction process. The obtained material had a SO(3)H density of 0.64 mmol·g-1 and a specific surface area of 602 m2·g-1. The catalytic properties of AC-SO(3)H were compared with that of two commercial solid acid catalysts, Nafion NR50 and Amberlyst-15. In a(More)
PURPOSE The stathmin/oncoprotein 18 (STMN1) is overexpressed in various human cancers. The aim of our study was to investigate its clinical significance and interaction with p53 in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). MATERIALS AND METHODS Stathmin expression was assessed by Oncomine, Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) database, western blotting, and reverse(More)
Pirfenidone is an orally bioavailable synthetic compound with therapeutic potential for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. It is thought to act through antioxidant and anti-fibrotic pathways. Pirfenidone inhibits proliferation and/or myofibroblast differentiation of a wide range of cell types, however, little studies have analyzed the effect of pirfenidone on(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to investigate the oncogenic function and regulatory mechanism of stathmin in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). METHODS Two-dimensional electrophoresis and liquid chromatography-tandem mass chromatography were applied to screen differentiated proteins during carcinogenesis in OSCC. Cell Counting Kit-8 (CCK-8)(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the mutation status of growth differentiation factor 15 (GDF15) in patients with oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC), as well as the prognostic value of missense GDF15 mutations. PATIENTS AND METHODS Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded biopsy samples from 46 OSCC patients were involved in this study. GDF15 and TP53 mutations were(More)
In the present paper, the high-temperature phase change of pure tobermorite was investigated by TGA/DSC, X-ray diffraction and infrared spectroscopy (IR) respectively. The DSC results showed that four interlayer water molecules were lost when they were heated at 300 degrees C. As the temperature increased to 724 degrees C, Si-O-H bonds were cleaved and(More)
The paper used the method of iron copper catalyst reduction to degrade low concentrations of bromochloracetonitrile (BCAN) to lighten the damage to human being, which is a kind of disinfection by-products (DBPs) produced during the chlorination process of drinking water. The removal efficiency of BCAN and its influencing factors were investigated. The(More)
