Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are emerging as key molecules in human cancer. Highly upregulated in liver cancer (HULC), an lncRNA, has recently been revealed to be involved in hepatocellular carcinoma development and progression. It remains unclear, however, whether HULC plays an oncogenic role in human gastric cancer (GC). In the present study, we(More)
Osteopetrosis is a rare genetically heterogeneous disorder of bone metabolism characterized by increased skeleton density. In the past, standard methods for genetic diagnosis of osteopetrosis have primarily been performed by candidate gene screening and positional cloning. However, these methods are time and labor consumptive; and the genetic basis of(More)
Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are novel regulators in cancer biology. BRAF-activated lncRNA (BANCR) is overexpressed in melanoma and has a potential functional role in melanoma cell migration. However, little is known about the role of BANCR in the development of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). In the present study, BANCR expression was examined in six(More)
Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are recently identified regulators in tumorigenesis and tumour progression. BRAF-activated lncRNA (BANCR) is overexpressed in melanoma and has a potential functional role in melanoma cell migration. However, little is known concerning the role of BANCR in the development of colorectal cancer (CRC). The current study examined(More)
Proteomics is one of the emerging techniques for biomarker discovery. Biomarkers can be used for early noninvasive diagnosis and prognosis of diseases and treatment efficacy evaluation. In the present study, the well-established research systems of ClinProt Micro solution incorporated unique magnetic bead sample preparation technology, which, based on(More)
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease that is characterized by multi-organ involvement leading to significant morbidity and mortality in predominantly young women. The underlying pathogenesis involves the emergence of autoreactive T and B lymphocytes, production of autoantibodies, formation and deposition of immune complexes in various(More)
Osteosarcoma is the most common type of bone cancer, with a peak incidence in the early childhood. The relationship between microRNAs (miRNAs) and cancer development attracted more and more attention over the last few years. Members of the miRNA-29 family, including miRNA-29a, miRNA-29b, and miRNA-29c were shown to participate in the development of(More)
BACKGROUND The concordance rate between IHC and FISH according to clinical performance is still controversial. We report a prospective study to reflect the concordance between IHC and FISH in Guilin city, People's Republic of China. METHODS Fifty cases of invasive ductal carcinoma of breast tested by IHC and scored as 0, 1+, 2+ and 3+ by pathologists were(More)
Acute rejection remains a problem in renal transplantation. To further illustrate the mechanism of rejection, we integrated protein array-based proteomics and RNA microarray-based genomics to investigate the transcription factor, microRNA and long noncoding RNA of biopsies of three patients with acute rejections and a control group. 99 transcription factors(More)
microRNAs are a type of small non-coding RNAs which play important roles in post-transcriptional gene regulation, and the characterization of microRNA expression profiling in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) from patients with Klinefelter syndrome requires further investigation. In this study, PBMCs were obtained from patients with Klinefelter(More)
