Chinese pangolins as a representative species in the order Pholidota have highly specified morphological characters and occupy an important place in the mammalian phylogenetic tree. To obtain genomic data for this species, we have constructed a bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) library of Chinese pangolin. The library contains 208,272 clones with an(More)
BACKGROUND Nin one binding protein (NOB1) was identified as a potential oncogene in human glioma and miR-646 plays an important role in human growth and development. However, the underlying molecular mechanisms of NOB1 in tumorigenicity and its correlation with miR-646 in renal cell carcinoma (RCC) have not been investigated. METHODS We performed(More)
INTRODUCTION The MHC class i chain-related molecule A (MICA) is a ligand for the natural killer group 2, member D (NKG2D) immunoreceptor activation. The engagement of tumor cell surface MICA to NKG2D stimulates the NK and T cell antitumor immunity. Shedding of MICA by tumor cells facilitates tumor immune evasion, which might partially contribute to tumor(More)
BACKGROUND GATA-3 is a transcription factor involved in human growth and development. Recent studies found its association with breast cancer, however, its expression profile in renal cell carcinoma (RCC) has not been investigated. MATERIAL AND METHOD The study included 35 patients submitted to radical nephrectomy with confirmed pathological diagnosis of(More)
