Seven hundred forty seven cases of gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) in Koreans who were diagnosed between 2001 and 2002 were analyzed to evaluate their occurrence and their clinical, pathologic and immunohistochemical findings. The most frequent location of tumor was in the stomach (63%), followed by the small intestine (30%), the colorectum (5%),(More)
OBJECTIVE Endoscopic resection is commonly used for early gastric cancer (EGC) in Korea and Japan. There are only a few reports of metachronous cancer after endoscopic resection. The aim of this study was to identify clinical factors associated with metachronous gastric cancer after endoscopic resection. METHODS A total of 176 patients with EGC who had(More)
No published data are available about the expression of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPARγ) and the role of PPARγ in retinoblastoma protein (RB)-deficient human colorectal cancer (CRC) cells (SNU-C4 and SNU-C2A). Our aim was to investigate whether PPARγ is expressed in SNU-C4 and SNU-C2A cells and to elucidate possible molecular mechanisms(More)
OBJECTIVE. Endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) of gastric neoplasia has been reported to have a higher bleeding rate than conventional endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR). The aim of this study was to identify the risk factors for bleeding associated with ESD. MATERIAL AND METHODS. The records of consecutive patients who underwent ESD for gastric(More)
A cDNA (C2C-Prx) corresponding to a 2Cys-peroxiredoxin (2Cys-Prx) was isolated from a leaf cDNA library of Chinese cabbage. The predicted amino acid sequence of C2C-Prx has 2 conserved cysteines and several peptide domains present in most of the 2Cys-Prx subfamily members. It shows the highest sequence homology to the 2Cys-Prx enzymes of spinach (88%) and(More)
PURPOSE Hepatobiliary surgery has changed dramatically in recent decades with the advent of laparoscopic techniques. The aim of this retrospective study was to compare survival rates according to stages, adjusting for important prognostic factors. METHODS A retrospective study of a 17-year period from January 1994 to April 2011 was carried out. The cases(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Malignant cells require high energy via glycolytic generation of ATP for cell proliferation and survival. This process is thought to be mediated by glucose transporters (GLUTs). GLUT1 appears to be expressed aberrantly in many cancers. The liver is the main organ closely related to glycogen metabolism and it is thought that GLUT expression(More)
Fascin is an actin-binding protein that provides mechanical support and cell motility, and involves cancer cell metastasis. We investigated fascin protein expression in gastric cancer and assessed their relationship with clinicopathologic parameters and survival rates. In addition, we researched galectin-3 protein expression to study fascin action(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the correlation between radiologic vascular dilatation and serum nitrite concentration and eNOS expression in the endothelial cell and pneumocyte in a rabbit model of hepatopulmonary syndrome induced by common bile duct ligation (CBDL). MATERIALS AND METHODS Thin-section CT scans of the lung and pulmonary angiography were obtained(More)
BACKGROUND We investigated whether Makorin ring finger protein 1 (MKRN1), an E3 ligase, affects p14ARF-associated cellular senescence and tumorigenesis by posttranslational modification in gastric tumorigenesis. METHODS A link between MKRN1 and ARF was examined in MKRN1 null mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs) and in human fibroblasts and gastric cancer(More)
