The survival of most patients with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) remains poor, and novel therapeutic approaches are needed to improve outcomes. Given that the fraction of AML with mutated p53 is small ( approximately 10%), it appears rational to study MDM2 inhibitors as therapy for AML. Here, we report results of a detailed characterization of(More)
AIM To investigate the role of miR-26b and Mcl-1 in TRAIL-inducing cell death in hepatocellular carcinoma. Methods. The expression of miR-26b and Mcl-1 in HCC was detected by RT-qPCR and western blot. The regulation of Mcl-1 by miR-26b was determined by luciferase reporter assay. MTT and flow cytometry were employed to detect the cell viability and(More)
BACKGROUND To assess nutritional status, the prevalence of nutritional risk, and nutritional support in hospitalized patients in Guangzhou, to determine gender or age associated differences in the prevalence of nutritional risk. METHODS A total of 2550 patients admitted during April to December 2008 from six departments (Gastroenterology, Pulmonology,(More)
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most common cancers worldwide. Sphingosine kinase 1 (SphK1), which phosphorylates sphingosine to sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P), is overexpressed in various types of cancers and may act as an oncogene in tumorigenesis. However, little is known about the role of SphK1 in CRC patients. We studied the expression of SphK1 in(More)
Breast cancer is one of the most common malignancies and a major cause of cancer-related mortality all over the world. A growing body of reports revealed that microRNAs play essential roles in the progression of cancers. Aberrant expression of miR-503 has been reported in several kinds of cancer. The aim of the current study was to elucidate the role of(More)
Knowledge concerning nutritional status of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) is limited. Nutritional Risk Screening-2002 (NRS-2002) has been used to evaluate the nutritional aspects of patients according to the recommendation of European Society for Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism. Here we aim to assess the prevalence and characteristics of(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the therapeutic potential of endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) transfected with vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGFA) and heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) on rat hindlimb ischemia model. METHODS Eukaryotic expression vectors encoding VEGFA or HO-1 were constructed and introduced into EPCs isolated from rat bone marrow. In total, 150(More)
We examined the expression pattern and functional roles of microRNA 15a-5p (miR-15a-5p) in human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Possible miR-15a-5p aberrant expression in HCC cell lines or clinical HCC specimens was examined by quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR). In HCC HepG2 and SNU-182 cells, miR-15a-5p was ectopically overexpressed by lentiviral(More)
BACKGROUND In this study, we investigated the functional correlation between microRNA-210 (miR-210) and gene of F-box protein 31 (FBXO31) in regulating breast cancer. METHODS Dual-luciferase assay and quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction were used to investigate the binding of miR-210 with FBXO31 and their expression patterns in breast cancer.(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been identified as important regulators that potentially play critical roles in various biological and pathological processes of cancer cells. The aim of the present study was to investigate the expression of miR-32 in breast cancer and its biological role in tumor progression. MiR-32 expression was markedly upregulated in breast(More)
