CD147, also known as extracellular matrix metalloproteinase inducer, is a widely distributed cell surface glycoprotein that belongs to the immunoglobulin superfamily. CD147 has been proved to be enriched on the surface of many tumor cells, promoting tumor growth, invasion and metastasis by its stimulation effect on adjacent fibroblasts to produce matrix(More)
BACKGROUND Chloride intracellular channel 1 (CLIC1) is expressed ubiquitously in human tissues and is involved in the regulation of cell cycle, cell proliferation and differentiation. Recent studies have shown that CLIC1 is highly expressed in several human malignant tumors. However, its roles in human gliomas are still unclear. The aim of this study was to(More)
BACKGROUND To examine the expression of SMAD4 at gene and protein levels in glioma samples with different WHO grades and its association with survival. METHODS Two hundreds fifty-two glioma specimens and 42 normal control tissues were collected. Immunochemistry assay, quantitative real-time PCR and Western blot analysis were carried out to investigate the(More)
Chromodomain helicase DNA-binding protein 5 (CHD5), a member of the CHD family, is involved in key cellular processes including chromatin remodeling, cell cycle regulation, and cellular adhesion. Recent studies have demonstrated that CHD5 is the product of a novel tumor suppressor gene and is implicated in certain tumor types. However, the(More)
