AIM To find new potential biomarkers and to establish patterns for early detection of colorectal cancer. METHODS One hundred and eighty-two serum samples including 55 from colorectal cancer (CRC) patients, 35 from colorectal adenoma (CRA) patients and 92 from healthy persons (HP) were detected by surface-enhanced laser desorption/ionization mass(More)
BACKGROUND Although gastric cancer (GC) remains the second cause of cancer-related death, useful biomarkers for prognosis are still unavailable. We present here the attempt of mining novel biomarkers for GC prognosis by using serum proteomics. METHODS Sera from 43 GC patients and 41 controls with gastritis as Group 1 and 11 GC patients as Group 2 was(More)
BACKGROUND Thyroid carcinoma is the most common endocrine malignancy and a common cancer among the malignancies of head and neck. Noninvasive and convenient biomarkers for diagnosis of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) as early as possible remain an urgent need. The aim of this study was to discover and identify potential protein biomarkers for PTC(More)
OBJECTIVE To find new potential biomarkers and establish the patterns for the detection of ovarian cancer. METHODS Sixty one serum samples including 32 ovarian cancer patients and 29 healthy people were detected by surface-enhanced laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry (SELDI-MS). The protein fingerprint data were analyzed by bioinformatics tools.(More)
Wilms tumor is the most common pediatric tumor of the kidney. Previous studies have identified several serum biomarkers for Wilms tumor; however, they lack sufficient specificity and may not adequately distinguish Wilms tumor from confounding conditions. To date, no specific protein biomarker has been confirmed for this pediatric tumor. To identify novel(More)
Wilms' tumor is one of the most common malignant tumors observed in children, and its early diagnosis is important for late-stage treatment and prognosis. We previously screened and identified protein markers for Wilms' tumor; however, these markers lacked specificity, and some were associated with inflammation. In the current study, serum samples from(More)
Cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) are one of the hallmarks of the cancer microenvironment. Recent evidence has indicated that CAFs are more competent in enhancing cancer cell growth and migration than normal fibroblasts. However, the unique protein expression of CAFs has not been fully elucidated. This study aims to investigate the characterizations of(More)
Biomarker assay is a noninvasive method for the early detection of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). Searching for new biomarkers with high specificity and sensitivity is very important for the early detection of ESCC. Serum surface-enhanced laser desorption/ionization-time of flight mass spectrometry (SELDI-TOF-MS) is a high throughput technology(More)
The aim of this study was to identify potential serum biomarkers of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) and to detect DLBCL therapy response biomarkers. DLBCL serum proteomic analysis was performed using the CM10 ProteinChip mass spectrometry (SELDI-TOF-MS) approach combined with bioinformatics. A total of 178 samples were analyzed in this study from(More)

DNA replication licensing occurs on chromatin, but how the chromatin template is regulated for replication remains mostly unclear. Here, we have analyzed the requirement of histone methyltransferases for a specific type of replication: the DNA re-replication induced by the downregulation of either Geminin, an inhibitor of replication licensing protein CDT1,(More)
