Positive Correlations of Oct-4 and Nanog in Oral Cancer Stem-Like Cells and High-Grade Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma
Purpose: Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC), like many solid tumors, contains a heterogeneous population of cancer cells. Recent data suggest that a rare subpopulation of cancer cells, termed cancerExpand

BMK1 Mediates Growth Factor-induced Cell Proliferation through Direct Cellular Activation of Serum and Glucocorticoid-inducible Kinase*
Activation of the mammalian mitogen-activated protein kinase known as BMK1 is required for growth factor-induced cell proliferation. To understand the mechanism by which BMK1 mediates this cellularExpand

The epithelial-mesenchymal transition mediator S100A4 maintains cancer-initiating cells in head and neck cancers.
Cancer-initiating cells (CIC) comprise a rare subpopulation of cells in tumors that are proposed to be responsible for tumor growth. Starting from CICs identified in head and neck squamous cellExpand

Toll-like receptor 9 and 21 have different ligand recognition profiles and cooperatively mediate activity of CpG-oligodeoxynucleotides in zebrafish
Significance Zebrafish Toll-like receptor (TLR) 9 (zebTLR9) and TLR21 (zebTLR21) have distinct CpG-oligodeoxynucleotide (CpG-ODN) sequence recognition profiles. The recognition profile of zebTLR9 isExpand

Tid1, the Human Homologue of a Drosophila Tumor Suppressor, Reduces the Malignant Activity of ErbB-2 in Carcinoma Cells
The ErbB-2/HER-2 receptor tyrosine kinase is overexpressed in a wide range of solid human tumors. The ErbB-2 gene product is a transmembrane glycoprotein belonging to the epidermal growth factorExpand

CD133/Src Axis Mediates Tumor Initiating Property and Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition of Head and Neck Cancer
Background Head and Neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is a human lethal cancer with clinical, pathological, phenotypical and biological heterogeneity. Caner initiating cells (CICs), which areExpand

Identification of CD133-Positive Radioresistant Cells in Atypical Teratoid/ Rhabdoid Tumor
Atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor (AT/RT) is an extremely malignant neoplasm in the central nervous system (CNS) which occurs in infancy and childhood. Recent studies suggested that CD133 could beExpand

Distinct subpopulations of head and neck cancer cells with different levels of intracellular reactive oxygen species exhibit diverse stemness, proliferation, and chemosensitivity.
Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is driven by cancer-initiating cells (CIC), but their maintenance mechanisms are obscure. For hematopoietic stem cells, low levels of intracellularExpand
