A panel of five circulating microRNAs as potential biomarkers for prostate cancer.
BACKGROUND Circulating microRNA (miRNAs) have been shown to have the potential as noninvasive diagnosis markers in several types of cancers. In this study, we investigated whether circulating miRNAs… Expand
Prognostic significance of MCM2, Ki-67 and gelsolin in non-small cell lung cancer
BackgroundUncontrolled proliferation and increased motility are hallmarks of neoplastic cells, therefore markers of proliferation and motility may be valuable in assessing tumor progression and… Expand
Baicalein Inhibits the Invasion and Metastatic Capabilities of Hepatocellular Carcinoma Cells via Down-Regulation of the ERK Pathway
Baicalein, a widely used Chinese herbal medicine, has historically been used in anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer therapies. However, the anti-metastatic effect and molecular mechanism(s) of… Expand
Overexpression of 14-3-3ζ in cancer cells activates PI3K via binding the p85 regulatory subunit
The ubiquitously expressed 14-3-3 proteins regulate many pathways involved in transformation. Previously, we found that 14-3-3ζ overexpression increased Akt phosphorylation in human mammary… Expand

PROBLEM Quick detection and response were essential for preventing outbreaks of infectious diseases after the Sichuan earthquake. However, the existing public health communication system in Sichuan… Expand
Molecular Phenotypes Distinguish Patients with Relatively Stable from Progressive Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF)
Background Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a progressive, chronic interstitial lung disease that is unresponsive to current therapy and often leads to death. However, the rate of disease… Expand

Slowed elongation rate is the apparent cause of the rapid decrease in rat soleus muscle protein synthesis rate during non-weight bearing. We found that elongation factor 2 was not phosphorylated and… Expand
Cardioprotective effects of tanshinone IIA on myocardial ischemia injury in rats.
Tanshinone IIA (Tan IIA), a derivative of phenanthrenequinone isolated from Salvia miltiorrhiza, has been widely used for treating cardiovascular diseases in China. In the present study, we assessed… Expand
Ceramide and other sphingolipids in cellular responses
Formerly considered to serve only as structural components, sphingolipids are emerging as an important group of signaling molecules involved in many cellular events, including cell growth,… Expand
