MOTIVATION Detection of differentially expressed genes is one of the major goals of microarray experiments. Pairwise comparison for each gene is not appropriate without controlling the overall (experimentwise) type 1 error rate. Dudoit et al. have advocated use of permutation-based step-down P-value adjustments to correct the observed significance levels(More)
Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been widely studied in recent years, and accumulating evidence identified lncRNAs as crucial regulators of various biological processes, including cell cycle progression, chromatin remodeling, gene transcription, and posttranscriptional processing. In addition, the fact that lncRNAs interact with the MYC gene family in(More)
Gastric cancer (GC) remains a major public health issue as the second leading cause of cancer-related death and the fourth most common cancer worldwide. Although much progress has been achieved in recent years, the early diagnosis and treatment for GC are not yet satisfactory; thus, the prognosis remains poor. Therefore, identification of novel molecules(More)
Defects in the adenosine-uridine (AU)-rich elements (AREs), which mediate post-transcriptional regulation, play important roles in cancers. Both tristetraprolin (TTP, also known as TIS11 and ZFP36) and human antigen R (HuR, also known as ELAVL1) are two important and closely related AU-rich RNA-binding proteins (ARE-BPs). High-expression or aberrant(More)
Tristetraprolin (TTP) is an adenine/uridine (AU)-rich element (ARE)-binding protein that can induce degradation of mRNAs. In this study, we report that TTP suppresses the expression of interleukin-33 (IL-33), a tumor-promoting inflammatory cytokine, and thereby inhibits the progression of gastric cancer (GC). Overexpression of TTP decreased the level of(More)
RNA-binding protein Lin28 was originally found as a heterochronic gene which played a significant role in the development of Caenorhabditis elegans. The tumor suppressor let-7 is a downstream target of Lin28, which has a wide variety of target genes which are involved in many aspects of cellular activities. By inhibition of let-7 and directly binding the(More)
