To investigate the effect of small-interfering RNA (siRNA) targeted against Ki-67, which is an attractive molecular target for cancer therapy, on inhibiting Ki-67 expression and cell proliferation in human renal carcinoma cells (HRCCs), siRNAs were used to inhibit the expression of Ki-67 in HRCCs. Ki-67 mRNA levels were detected by RT-PCR and in situ(More)
We have characterized a newly identified gene from Dictyostelium discoideum, DdTBP alpha, that encodes a member of the family of eukaryotic proteins. These proteins contain a conserved ATPase domain, include subunits of the 26S protease subunit, and are homologous to the mammalian human immunodeficiency virus Tat-binding protein TBP1. While information(More)
We treated in vitro human renal carcinoma cells (cell line 786-0) with the lipid-delivered peptide nucleic acids (PNAs) against Ki-67 gene. Corresponding control groups were treated with the antisense oligonucleotides (ASOs) of the same nucleobase sequence, and with mismatched PNAs. In cells treated by anti-Ki-67 PNAs, the Ki-67 expression rate, Ki-67(More)
Renal infiltration of colon adenocarcinoma is a rare event. The authors present the case report of a 52-year-old female who had a high carcinoembryonic antigen level 18 months after right hemicolectomy and a chemotherapy regimen to treat transverse colon adenocarcinoma. The patient presented cancer recurrence after 12 months, and underwent a paraaortic(More)
Human T-cell lymphotropic virus type-I (HTLV-I) is the etiologic agent of HTLV-I-associated myelopathy/tropical spastic paraparesis (HAM/TSP) and adult T-cell leukemia (ATL). HAM/TSP and ATL occur infrequently among HTLV-I-infected individuals, and rarely develop in the same individual. To study host and viral factors involved in the induction, tissue(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate whether inhibitory effect of chrysin on sphere formation of ovarian cancer stem-like cells(spheroids derived from human ovarian cancer SKOV3 cell line ) is involved in the down-regulating of the protein expression of casein kinase CK2α. METHODS SKOV3-derived ovarian cancer stem-like cells obtained by suspension culture in stem(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the pathohistological characteristics of the prostate tissues in patients who receive a second TURP and to evaluate their clinical significance. METHODS We collected surgical specimens from 50 cases of TURP (the control group) and another 50 cases of re-TURP (the re-TURP group), detected the expressions of CD34, vascular(More)
