The present study profiled differentially expressed microRNAs (miRs) in gastric cancer cell lines and then investigated miR-7 expression in gastric cancer tissue specimens and the effects of miR-7 on the growth, invasion and metastasis of gastric cancer cells and the underlying molecular events. A microRNA microarray was used to profile differentially(More)
A series of 3-, 7-, 15-, and 16-methyl-substituted steroid analogs were synthesized via a highly stereoselective 1,6-conjugate addition. Under the catalysis of CuBr, AlMe(3) reacted with four steroid dienone precursors to afford either the corresponding alpha-epimer of C-3 and C-7 methyl-substituted steroids as the major products, and the ratio of(More)
OBJECTIVES To observe the impact of rapamycin on peritoneal fibrosis and peritoneal transport function in a rat model of peritoneal fibrosis. METHODS A total of 40 male SD rats were randomly divided into five groups, with 8 rats in each group. Group N was the normal control. In group NS, the rats were injected daily with 20 ml of saline intraperitoneally.(More)
AIM To profile expression of microRNAs (miRNAs) in gastric cancer cells and investigate the effect of miR-374b-5p on gastric cancer cell invasion and metastasis. METHODS An miRNA microarray assay was performed to identify miRNAs differentially expressed in gastric cancer cell lines (MGC-803 and SGC-7901) compared with a normal gastric epithelial cell(More)
Two N-pyrenylacetamide-substituted sugar-aza-crown ethers have been synthesized as new fluorescent chemosensors. The designed ligands 1 and 2 exhibit fluorescence characteristics of a pyrene monomer and a dynamic excimer emission when compared to N-pyrenylacetamide as a model compound. Both ligands displayed a Cu2+-sensitive fluorescence quenching with a(More)
AIM To investigate the effects of macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) on proliferation of human gastric cancer MGC-803 cells and expression of cyclin D1 and p27(Kip1) in them, and further determine whether the effects are related to the PI3K/Akt signal transduction pathway. METHODS Gastric cancer MGC-803 cells were cultured and then treated with(More)
A multichromophoric glucopyranoside 2 bearing three dicyanomethylenepyran (DCM) fluorophores and one diarylethene (DAE) photochrome has been prepared by Cu(I)-catalyzed alkyne-azide cycloaddition reaction. The fluorescence of 2 was switched off upon UV irradiation, in proportion with the open to closed form (OF to CF) conversion extent of the DAE moiety. A(More)
Protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTPs) are well-validated therapeutic targets for many human major diseases. The development of their potent inhibitors has therefore become a main focus of both academia and the pharmaceutical industry. We report herein a facile strategy toward the fabrication of new and competent PTP inhibitor entities by simply 'clicking'(More)
There has been considerable interest in the development of protein tyrosine phosphatase (PTP) inhibitors since many of the PTP members are tightly associated with major human diseases including autoimmune disorders, diabetes and cancer. We report here a unique and rapid approach toward the development of novel PTP inhibitor entities based on triazolyl(More)
