It has been demonstrated that microRNA (miR)-133a is downregulated in a number of human malignancies and is closely associated with the progression of tumors. The present study was conducted to investigate the contribution of miR-133a to the initiation and malignant progression of human epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC). Quantitative polymerase chain reaction(More)
BACKGROUND Xingnaojing (XNJ), a well known prescription in traditional Chinese medicine, has been used for treatment of stroke in China. However, the effects and mechanisms of XNJ on autophagy are not clear. Here, we used the cell models of autophagy induced by serum-free condition and ischemia stroke in rats to further investigate whether the p53-DRAM(More)
Heat shock proteins (Hsps) are known to associate with estrogen receptors (ER) and regulate ER-mediated cell proliferation. Historically, the studies in this area have focused on Hsp90. However, some critical aspects of the Hsp-ERα interactions remain unclear. For example, we do not know which Hsps are the major or minor ERα interactants and whether or not(More)
The malignancy of endometrial carcinoma (EC) largely results from its high invasive feature. The regulation of the mRNA splicing of vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGF-A) is critical for EC-associated cancer vascularization and invasion. Recently, we have reported that poorly prognostic EC had high levels of YT521, a newly defined RNA splicing(More)
