In order to examine new ideas for gene therapy in ovarian cancer, the specific mechanism underlying the effects of the WW domain containing oxidoreductase (WWOX) gene on cell cycle regulation and apoptosis in human ovarian cancer stem cells was investigated. Ovarian cancer stem cells were transfected with a eukaryotic expression vector carrying the WWOX(More)
The aim of this study was to explore the effects of 5-Aza-2'-deoxycytidine (5-Aza-CdR), a DNA meth-ylation inhibitor, on the methylation state and function of the WWOX gene in the HO-8910 ovarian cancer cell line. The HO-8910 cells were divided into two groups, a control group and a 5-Aza-CdR-treated group. The methylation state of the WWOX gene was(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the impact of the WW domain-containing oxidoreductase (WWOX) gene on the mechanisms underlying epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in human ovarian cancer stem cells. Western blot analysis was performed to detect the differences in the expression of the EMT markers, E-cadherin, β-catenin, N‑cadherin,(More)
