Undesirable hyperpigmentation that can arise from increased melanocyte activity may be alleviated by targeting active melanocytes for apoptosis. The role of Stathmin 1 as an important regulator of microtubule dynamics is well documented. The current study examined the potential of Stathmin 1-targeting strategies in eliminating active melanocytes. A vector(More)
Naspharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is a common malignant tumor. Radiotherapy is the main treatment for patients with early-stage NPC. Some chemotherapeutic methods have been used to delay the progression of NPC during the later stages. Osteopontin (OPN), a secreted phosphoglycoprotein, has been shown to be involved in cell proliferation, migration and invasion(More)
The ubiquitin‑specific protease 22 (USP22) gene is overexpressed in the majority of types of cancer cells, and has been implicated in tumorigenesis. However, the mechanisms that regulate its expression remain unclear. The results of the present study demonstrated that the expression of USP22 is negatively regulated by trichostatin A (TSA), a classical(More)
The human ubiquitin-specific processing enzyme 22 (USP22) plays a crucial role in regulating cell cycle processes and its overexpression has been linked to tumor progression. However, the mechanisms leading to USP22 transcriptional activation in human cancer cells are still unclear. Previously, we characterized the 5'-flanking sequence of the human USP22(More)
Ubiquitin-specific processing enzyme 22 (USP22) plays a direct role in regulating cell cycle, and its overexpression has been reported to be involved in tumor progression. However, little is known about the regulation of USP22 transcription. In this study, we cloned and characterized the human USP22 promoter. Using 5' RACE (rapid amplification of cDNA ends)(More)
The present study aimed to screen several differentially expressed genes (DEGs) and differentially expressed microRNAs (miRNAs) for two types of mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) differentiation. Bone morphogenetic protein 6 (BMP‑6) and dexamethasone were used to induce MSCs towards osteoblastic differentiation or adipocytic differentiation. The t‑test in the(More)
Depended on the multi task measurement and control system of complex test process, operation and management of computer real-time access to the control computer processes data, timely trigger data acquisition and processing system based on distributed LAN, distributed measurement and control system of communication mechanism between each subsystem to carry(More)
Runt-related transcription factor 2 (RUNX2) is a vital regulatory factor that controls osteoblast-specific gene expression; however, RUNX2‑regulated genes in human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) remain to be fully elucidated. In the present study, chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP)-on-chip analysis of RUNX2 in hMSCs demonstrated that importin 8 (IPO8) may(More)
OBJECTIVE To clone 5' untranslated region of human IPO8 gene and determine its transcription activity. METHODS We used 5' rapid amplification of cDNA ends (RACE) analysis to identify the IPO8 transcription start site (TSS), and amplified series truncated 5' UTR fragment containing transcription start site. The PCR productions were inserted into luciferase(More)
Ubiquitin-specific processing enzyme 22 (USP22), a member of the deubiquitinase family, is over-expressed in most human cancers and has been implicated in tumorigenesis. Because it is an enzymatic subunit of the human SAGA transcriptional cofactor, USP22 deubiquitylates histone H2A and H2B in the nucleus, thus participating in gene regulation and cell-cycle(More)
