PVT1, which maps to chromosome 8q24, is a copy number amplification-associated long non-coding RNA. Overexpression of PVT1 is a powerful predictor of tumor progression and patient survival in a diverse range of cancer types. However, the association between PVT1 and hepato-cellular carcinoma (HCC) remains unclear. The aim of the present study was to examine(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation of the proinflammatory marker tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) and the tubular marker neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) with the progression of the early stage of type 2 diabetic nephropathy (DN). Baseline levels of urinary TNF-α and NGAL were measured in 63 non-diabetic controls and(More)
Oil content in cottonseed is a major quality trait which when improved through breeding could enhance the competitiveness of cottonseed oil among other vegetable oils. Cottonseed oil content is a quantitative trait controlled by genes in the tetraploid embryo and tetraploid maternal plant genomes, and the knowledge of quantitative trait loci (QTLs) and the(More)
The association between the phosphodiesterase 3A (PDE3A) rs7134375 single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and serum lipid levels are not well understood in the general population. The present study was performed in order to detect the association between the rs7134375 SNP and serum lipid levels in the Guangxi Mulao and Han populations. The genotypes of the(More)
Plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1), belonging to the urokinase plasminogen activation (uPA) system, is involved in cancer development and progression. The PAI-1 promoter 4G/5G polymorphism was shown to contribute to genetic susceptibility to cancer, although the results were inconsistent. To assess this relationship more precisely, a meta-analysis(More)
Guan Chang Fu Fang (GCFF) is a natural compound, which is extracted from three medicinal plants, Agrimonia pilosa Ledeb., Patrinia scabiosaefolia and Solanum nigrum L. GCFF has demonstrated clinical efficacy in the treatment of colon cancer. At present, 5‑fluorouracil (5‑FU) is the primary active chemotherapeutic agent used for treating colon cancer. Using(More)
In recent years, the incidence of laryngeal carci-noma has been on the increase. The aim of the present study was to examine the expression level of endothelin-1 (ET-1) in laryngeal carcinoma tissues and to establish its clinical significance. A total of 82 cases of laryngeal carcinoma tissues were examined, of which 27 cases were stage I, 34 were stage II,(More)
A 47-year-old male presented with a six-month history of fatigue and a four-month history of alanine and aspartate aminopherase elevation. Laboratory examination revealed that the serum α-fetoprotein (AFP) level was 371.51 µg/l (normal range, 0-20 µg/l), and a computed tomography scan revealed a hypodense lesion in the left hepatic lobe. During laparotomy,(More)
Cytoplasmic poly(A) binding protein 4 (PABPC4) is an RNA-processing protein which has an important role in regulating gene expression. The association of the PABPC4 rs4660293 single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and serum lipid profiles has, to the best of our knowledge, not previously been studied in the Chinese population. The present study aimed to(More)
