AIMS Recent evidence indicates that the increased expression of calpain small subunit 1 (Capn4) is associated with tumorigenesis. This study was designed to explore the role which Capn4 plays in human glioma. METHODS We detected the expression of Capn4 by immunohistochemistry in tissue microarrays and tissue samples. Following the down-regulation of Capn4(More)
Studies have showed the involvement of ubiquitin-like with PHD and RING finger domains 1 (UHRF1) in tumorigenesis and progression. This study focused on the relationships between UHRF1 and medulloblastoma (MB). Immunostaining and western blotting demonstrated differential expression of UHRF1 in MB tissues and no UHRF1 expression in normal cerebellum(More)
Tripartite motif (TRIM) proteins are involved in tumorigenesis. Here, we examined the expression, biological function, and clinical significance of tripartite motif containing 28 (TRIM28) in glioma, a locally aggressive brain tumor. First, TRIM28 expression was significantly higher in glioma (n = 138) than in non-glioma controls (n = 6). TRIM28 expression(More)
miR-124 and Capn4 are aberrantly expressed in glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) tissues. In the present study, we investigated miR-124 and Capn4 expression in GBM tissue specimens. The role of miR-124 and Capn4 in the migration and invasion of glioma cells in vitro was also examined. miR-124 and Capn4 expression in 20 GBM and 6 control brain specimens was(More)
