BACKGROUND & AIMS Nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-kappaB) signaling pathway is an important regulating pathway in liver diseases, including hepatocellular carcinoma. In our study, immunohistochemical analysis showed that NF-kappaB-inducing kinase (NIK), an upstream kinase of IkappaB kinases, nuclear localization occurs only in liver tissues obtained from(More)
Although efficient vaccines are available, chronic hepatitis B (HBV) infection poses a major health problem worldwide, and prolonged treatment of chronically infected HBV patients with nucleoside analogs often results in drug-resistant HBV variants. Therefore, it is critical to evaluate the contribution of the HBV polymerase to mutations. FLAG-tagged(More)
AIM To find the relationship between hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatocytes during the initial state of infection by cDNA microarray. METHODS Primary normal human hepatocytes (PNHHs) were isolated and infected with HBV. From the PNHHs, RNA was isolated and inverted into complement DNA (cDNA) with Cy3- or Cy5- labeled dUTP for microarray analysis. The(More)
