Galectin-4 is a multifunctional lectin found at both intracellular and extracellular sites. It could serve as a tumor suppressor intracellularly and promote tumor metastases extracellularly during colorectal cancer development. However, galectin-4 expression and its prognostic value for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) have not been well(More)
Hepatic resection is the preferred treatment for huge hepatocellular carcinoma (>10 cm in diameter; H-HCC). However, the patients with H-HCC suffer from poor prognosis due to the early recurrence/metastasis. The underlying mechanism of H-HCC’s early recurrence/metastasis is currently not well understood. Here, we describe an Isobaric Tags for relative and(More)
Recurrence, invasion, and metastasis are the major reasons of the low 5-year survival of hepatocellular carcinoma. However, the mechanisms of recurrence, invasion, and metastasis are still poll understood. Long noncoding RNAs (LncRNAs, >200 nt) have been demonstrated to play important roles in both tumor suppressive and oncogenic signaling pathways. Here,(More)
Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most common malignant tumor, which is causing the second leading cancer-related death worldwide. The tumor tissues and the adjacent noncancerous tissues obtained from HCC patients with single and multiple lesions were quantified using iTRAQ. A total of 5513 proteins (FDR of 1%) were identified which correspond to(More)
Dendritic cells (DC) have important functions in T cell immunity and T cell tolerance. Previous studies suggest that immature dendritic cells (imDCs) might be involved in the induction of peripheral T cell tolerance. While interleukin-10 (IL-10) functions at different levels of the immune response, transforming growth factor-beta 1 (TGF-beta 1) is(More)
OBJECTIVE To review the feasibility of coupling the techniques of random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) with carbon nanotube-based modified electrode for guanine/deoxyguanine triphosphate (dGTP) electrochemical sensing for mapping of the pancreatic cancer genetic fingerprint and screening of genetic alterations. METHODS We developed a new method to(More)
The prognosis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) after surgical resection remains unsatisfactory for the majority of HCC patients who developed early recurrence or metastasis. There is still a lack of reliable biomarkers that can be used to predict the possibility of recurrence/metastasis in HCC patients after operation. In the current study, annexin A4, a(More)
