Around 200-600 million Asians chew areca (also called betel), which contains a mixture of areca nut and other ingredients. Epidemiological evidences indicated that areca use is tightly linked to oral carcinogenesis. This study investigated the effects of ripe areca nut extract (ANE) on cultured normal human oral keratinocyte (NHOK). Acute subtoxic ANE(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic pulmonary obstructive disease (COPD) has become the fourth leading cause of death worldwide. Cigarette smoking induces neutrophil elastase (NE) and contributes to COPD, but the detailed mechanisms involved are not fully established.

Hypoxia is a major driving force of cancer invasion and metastasis. Here we show that death domain-associated protein (Daxx) acts to negatively regulate hypoxia-induced cell dissemination and invasion by inhibiting the HIF-1α/HDAC1/Slug pathway. Daxx directly binds to the DNA-binding domain of Slug, impeding histone deacetylase 1 (HDAC1) recruitment and(More)
