AIM miRNA-486 (miR-486) was first identified from the human fetal liver cDNA library and considered to be associated with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) development. Its roles in regulation of HCC metastasis and chemosensitivity have not been explored yet. METHODS miR-486 expression in HCC tissues, cell lines and serum was evaluated by real-time(More)
Inhibition of the cell mitotic pathway may provide a novel means for therapeutic intervention in chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). Kinesin spindle protein (KSP), a microtubule-associated motor protein which is essential for cell cycle progression, is overexpressed in bcr-abl+ CML cells. Retrovirus mediated bcr-abl transduction increases KSP expression in cord(More)
The deregulation of HGF/c-Met signaling is implicated in epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and progress of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, the epigenetic mechanisms that HGF/c-Met regulates EMT and metastasis of HCC cells are less explored. In this study, we demonstrated that HCC cells express a high level of SUMO/sentrin-specific protease 1(More)
PURPOSE To investigate whether adenovirus-mediated delivery of the human hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) gene could prevent radiation-induced hematopoietic damage. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty C57BL/6 mice were randomized into three groups, in which phosphate buffer saline (PBS), mock adenovirus vector (Ad-null) or adenovirus vector containing HGF (Ad-HGF)(More)
Essential proteins are those that are indispensable to cellular survival and development. Existing methods for essential protein identification generally rely on knock-out experiments and/or the relative density of their interactions (edges) with other proteins in a Protein-Protein Interaction (PPI) network. Here, we present a computational method, called(More)
Differentiation induction is currently considered as an alternative strategy for treating chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML). Our previous work has demonstrated that Sprouty-related EVH1 domainprotein2 (Spred2) was involved in imatinib mediated cytotoxicity in CML cells. However, its roles in growth and lineage differentiation of CML cells remain unknown.(More)
Essential proteins play a crucial role in cellular survival and development process. Experimentally, essential proteins are identified by gene knockouts or RNA interference, which are expensive and often fatal to the target organisms. Regarding this, an alternative yet important approach to essential protein identification is through computational(More)
Kinesin spindle protein (KSP) is a microtubule-associated motor protein that is specifically expressed by mitosis cells. It is highly expressed in various types of tumors including hematomalignances and solid tumors. Chemical KSP inhibition has become a novel strategy in the development of anticancer drugs. SB743921 is a selective inhibitor for KSP, which(More)
miR-17-92 cluster are overexpressed in hematological malignancies including chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). However, their roles and mechanisms that regulate BCR-ABL induced leukemogenesis remain unclear. In this study, we demonstrated that genomic depletion of miR-17-92 inhibited the BCR-ABL induced leukemogenesis by using a mouse model of transplantation(More)
