Curcumin, traditionally used as food and medicinal purposes, has recently been reported to have protective efficacy against hypoxia. Hypoxia is one of the important reactive factors in tumor metastasis, which is a key problem in clinical thyroid cancer therapy. In present study, we investigate the anti-metastatic effect of curcumin on the K1 papillary(More)
Recently, many studies on health benefits associated with curcumin have been reported. In this study, the effects of curcumin on apoptosis of papillary thyroid cancer cell line K1 and its potential mechanisms were investigated. Curcumin was found to significantly inhibit cell viability and promoted cell apoptosis in a dose-dependent manner. Moreover,(More)
The anti-metastatic effect of curcumin on papillary thyroid cancer K1 cells and its underlying mechanisms were investigated. Curcumin at 12.5, 25 and 50 μM promoted mesenchymal–epithelial transition and decreased the migration rate of K1 cells by 24–87 %. Its mechanism may involve the up-regulation of E-cadherin expression levels and down-regulation of the(More)
Curcumin, the active constituent of dietary spice turmeric, possesses a strong potential for cancer prevention and treatment. However, there is no study to address the effects of curcumin on invasion and metastasis of thyroid cancers. Thyroid cancer is the most common malignancy of endocrine organs, and its incidence rates have steadily increased over(More)
Waxy maize has little or very low content of amylose (<5 %) in grain starch and carries null mutations of the waxy (Wx) gene. With important uses as fresh maize or as an ingredient in food, textile, adhesive, and paper industries, two types of wx allele, wx-D7 and wx-D10, had been identified. In the present study, 10 accessions carrying neither wx-D7 nor(More)
qRT-PCR is one of the most popular approaches to analyze specific gene expression level, and stably expressed reference genes are essential to obtain reliable results. However, many reference genes are only stable under certain circumstances and different reference genes might be required in different experiments. High temperature is a common stress that(More)
