Previous studies indicated that EAF (ELL-associated factor) family members, EAF1 and EAF2/U19, play a role in cancer and embryogenesis. For example, EAF2/U19 may serve as a tumor suppressor in prostate cancer. At the same time, EAF2/U19 is a downstream factor in the non-canonical Wnt 4 signaling pathway required for eye development in Xenopus laevis, and(More)
Chemoresistance of cancer cells has been a severe problem in multiple types of cancers. One possibility is to combine different drugs with chemotherapy for improved efficacy. Cyclopamine blocks Hedgehog signaling by antagonizing Smo function, which induces tumor apoptosis. Here, we show that the combined use of cyclopamine and paclitaxel (chemotherapy(More)
Increasing evidence indicates that abnormal microRNA (miRNA) expression is related to hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) development. Our study aimed to elucidate the essential role of miR-329 in HCC progression. Real-time PCR was used to analyze miR-329 and bromodomain containing 4 (BRD4) expression in HCC samples (n = 135). Cell Counting Kit-8 (CCK-8) and(More)
miR-25 was identified as an essential oncogene by promoting the growth and metastasis through TOB1 in gastric cancer (GC). The function of the single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) located in the mature region of miR-25 (rs41274221) has not been investigated. In this study, we aimed to explore the involvement of rs41274221 in miR-25 in gastric cancer. We(More)
