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)
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)
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)
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)
BACKGROUND Mitochondrial outer membrane permeabilization (MOMP) is a crucial step leading to apoptotic destruction of cancer cells. Bcl-2 family proteins delicately regulate mitochondrial outer membrane integrity through protein-protein interactions, which makes the mitochondrion an ideal cell-free system for screening molecules targeting the Bcl-2(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)
Although a number of studies suggested that WT1 rs16754 polymorphism might be related to decreased relapse free survival (RFS) and overall survival (OS). The results remain controversial. Published reports were searched in PubMed, EMBASE, and Google Scholar. Twelve publications with 3903 patients had met the inclusion criteria and were subjected to further(More)
