Krüppel-like factor 4 (KLF4) plays important roles in development, stemness and tumorigenesis; however limited information is available on the detailed function of KLF4 in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The objective of the present study was to examine the functional roles of KLF4 in the metastasis of HCC cells. KLF4 was overexpressed and knocked down by(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the major leading cause of cancer death worldwide. Hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus, alcohol consumption, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and diabetes are the major risks for developing HCC. Until now, recurrence and metastasis are the major cause of death in HCC patients. Therefore, identification of new effective(More)
Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPARγ) is a ligand-activated nuclear receptor that regulates cellular lipid and glucose metabolism and also plays an inhibitory role in various cancers. However, the role of PPARγ in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains controversial. This study aimed to investigate the prognostic value of PPARγ in HCC and its(More)
BACKGROUND Honokiol, a derivative extracted from the stem and bark of Magnolia officinalis, has been reported to have anticancer effects in hepatoma cells. Recently, it was found that honokiol acted as not only a retinoid X receptor (RXR) agonist but also as a peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARγ) agonist. Additionally, honokiol is(More)
