Common variants of multiple genes play a role in glioma onset. However, research related to astrocytoma, the most common primary brain neoplasm, is rare. In this study, we chose 21 tagging SNPs (tSNPs), previously reported to be associated with glioma risk in a Chinese case–control study from Xi’an, China, and identified their contributions to astrocytoma(More)
We developed a ratiometric fluorescent probe for sensing HOCl based on coumarin and rhodamine acid that is directly used as a detection moiety. The probe shows high selectivity and sensitivity toward HOCl under best working conditions of myeloperoxidase by which HOCl can be generated from hydrogen peroxide and chloride.
BACKGROUND Glioblastoma (GBM) is an immunosuppressive tumor whose median survival time is only 12- 15 months, and patients with GBM have a uniformly poor prognosis. It is known that heredity contributes to formation of glioma, but there are few genetic studies concerning GBM. MATERIALS AND METHODS We genotyped six tagging SNPs (tSNP) in Han Chinese GBM(More)
PURPOSE We evaluated whether glans preserving surgery would be more helpful for patients to regain satisfactory sexual competency postoperatively than conventional partial amputation. MATERIALS AND METHODS From 2004 to 2012 at 4 centers a total of 135 men treated with glans preserving surgery and 36 treated with partial amputation were selected for(More)
Deregulation of SOX9 expression has been detected in various human cancer tissues; however, the functional role of SOX9 expression has not been fully elucidated in glioma. SOX9 expression in glioma tissues was analyzed using public tumor datasets and quantitative reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction. The association of SOX9 expression with(More)
MicroRNAs are a kind of small non-coding single-stranded RNA molecules that negatively regulate the gene expression by binding to imperfect complementary sites in the 3' untranslated region of targeted mRNAs at the post-transcriptional level. Aberrant expressions of some miRNAs like miR-221/222, miR-146a and miR-125b have been found to be significantly(More)
OBJECTIVE MicroRNA-205 (miRNA-205) was revealed as an attractive prognostic tumour biomarker in recent studies. However, the results of different studies have been inconsistent. We conducted a meta-analysis to elucidate the precise predictive value of miRNA-205 in various human malignant neoplasms. DESIGN Meta-analysis. DATA SOURCES Qualified studies(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the factors influencing the prognosis of penis-sparing surgery (PSS) for early-stage penile cancer. METHODS We retrospectively studied the clinical data about 45 cases of early-stage penile cancer treated by PSS from January 2007 to December 2014. We calculated the rate of local recurrence-free survival by the Kaplan-Meier method,(More)
BACKGROUND MicroRNA-221 (miR-221) has been shown to play an important role in cancer prognosis. In order to evaluate the predictive value of miR-221, we compiled the evidence from 20 eligible studies to perform a meta-analysis. DESIGN All of relevant studies were identified by searching PubMed, Embase, and Web of Science, and were assessed by further(More)
The glycosyltransferases (GTs) catalyze the synthesis of the carbohydrate portions of glycoproteins, glycolipids, and proteoglycans. Here we report the cloning and characterization of a novel human GTDC1 (glycosyltransferase-like domain containing 1) gene, which locates on human chromosome 2q22. The GTDC1 cDNA is 2954 bp in length, encoding a putative(More)
