The LASS2 gene has been identified as a new tumor metastasis suppressor gene and has been seen to correlate with the degree of invasion and recurrence in carcinomas of prostate, breast, liver, ovarian, and pancreas. However, expression and prognostic significance of LASS2 in human bladder carcinoma are largely unknown. In this study, the protein expression(More)
DNA mismatch repair (MMR) is involved in the post-replication correction of errors due to misincorporated nucleotides or DNA slippage during DNA synthesis. We previously reported the reduction or loss of MMR protein expression in human prostate cancer cell lines and some primary tumors. In the present report, we further demonstrate the involvement of(More)
Bladder cancer (BC) is one of the most common human malignancies that account for major death in the world. Apoptin that is derived from chicken anemia virus (CAV) has displayed tumor-specific cytotoxic activity in a variety of human carcinomas. However, the magical function of apoptin in bladder carcinoma cell lines has not been identified yet. In our(More)
Blood lipids are important risk factors for coronary artery disease (CAD). Here we perform an exome-wide association study by genotyping 12,685 Chinese, using a custom Illumina HumanExome BeadChip, to identify additional loci influencing lipid levels. Single-variant association analysis on 65,671 single nucleotide polymorphisms reveals 19 loci associated(More)
We describe a case of salt-losing congenital adrenal hyperplasia due to 21-hydroxylase deficiency complicated by a right adrenal adenoma. The development of adrenal adenoma or carcinoma in-patients with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) is rare; the etiology is not clear but is thought to be related to inadequate glucocorticoid therapy. Tumor formation(More)
MicroRNA-9 upregulation was reported in several tumors. However, its function and mechanism in human bladder cancer remains obscure. The present study aims to identify the expression pattern, biological roles and potential mechanism of miR-9 in human bladder cancers. We found that expression level of miR-9 in bladder cancer tissues was higher than normal(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish a fluorescent implantation metastasis model of bladder carcinoma with high metastatic potential in nude mice and observe development and metastasis. METHODS Human bladder cancer EJ cells with high invasive ability were screened and transfected with GFP plasmid to screen stable enhanced GFP-expressing clones instilled into the(More)
Bladder cancer is one of the most common malignant tumors worldwide. Bladder cancer stem cells (BCSCs) have been isolated recently but have not been defined yet. Here we sorted BCSCs from bladder tumor tissues or normal bladder stem cells (NBBCs) from adjacent normal bladder tissues. We found that the C228T mutation (chr5, 1, 295, 228 C > T) of TERT(More)
The Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient is being used to evaluate the similarity of the high-performance liquid chromatographic fingerprints of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) in China. It is confirmed that a large range of peak areas produced the wrong results. A new algorithm concerning weighted Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient(More)
The HPLC method for simultaneous determination of cetylpyridinium chloride (CPC), tetracaine hydrochloride (TTC) in Xipiluan buccal tablets was developed and validated. The HPLC method was performed on a CN column (150 x 4.6 mm i.d., 5 microm particle size); the mobile phase was methanol-tetramethylammonium hydroxide (20 mM)-potassium dihydrogen phosphate(More)
