OBJECTIVE To investigate two single nucleotide polymorphism sites of IRF5 and TLR-9 and to detect their relationship with SLE (systemic lupus erythematosus) in a Han population from Shandong province. METHODS The polymorphisms of rs2004640 G/T, rs10954213 G/A in IRF-5 and rs187084C/T, rs352139A/G in TLR-9 were detected with PCR-RFLP in 92 cases of SLE and(More)
Nurr1, a member of the orphan receptor family, plays an important role in several types of cancer. Our previous work demonstrated that increased expression of Nurr1 plays a significant role in the initiation and progression of prostate cancer (PCa), though the mechanisms for regulation of Nurr1 expression remain unknown. In this study, we investigated the(More)
BACKGROUND Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) has exhibited antitumor properties in several types of cancers, including nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), but the molecular mechanisms underlying this function remain incompletely understood. The aim of the present study was to characterize the global impact of EGCG on the expression of microRNAs (miRNAs) in NPC(More)
