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)
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)
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)
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 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)
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)
Homo sapiens longevity assurance homolog 2 of yeast LAG1 (LASS2), a metastasis suppressor gene of human cancer, is the most abundantly expressed member of the ceramide synthase gene family. Expression of LASS2 has been reported in carcinomas of the prostate, liver and breast. However, there has been no report on the expression of LASS2 in human bladder(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the expression of the chemokine receptor CXCR4 in human bladder carcinoma cells and its possible role in their metastatic growth in vitro. Immunofluorescent imaging and flow cytometry were performed to examine the expression of CXCR4 in the EJ and EJ-M3 cell lines. A highly specific CXCR4 antagonist, AMD3100,(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)
