OBJECTIVE To explore the relationship between the expression of aquaporin 4 (AQP4) and slow transit constipation(STC). METHODS The expression of AQP4 in the ascending colon mucosa of 45 patients with STC was detected by immunohistochemistry. The transit time of stool was measured with barium sulfate suspensions. Stool was classified using Bristol stool(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine E1AF mRNA expression and to determine whether it is correlated with tumor progression and matrilysin in human rectal cancer. METHODS Real-time RT-PCR was used to determine E1AF and matrilysin expression in 100 matched rectal cancers and normal tissues. RESULTS Among the 100 rectal cancers, 69 cases of E1AF mRNA overexpression were(More)
BACKGROUND In patients suffering from acute pancreatitis, the pathogenesis is not completely understood, and several recent studies in vitro suggested that heat shock proteins might play an important role in cell signaling. To investigate the possible role of extracellular heat shock protein 70 (Hsp70) in pancreatitis, toll-like receptor-4 (TLR4)-deficient(More)
Amplified in breast cancer 1 (AIB1) has been shown to promote growth and invasion in several types of human cancers and to have a prognostic role in some of cancers. However, its prognostic significance in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains unknown. This study aimed to address the issue. Immunohistochemical staining of AIB1 was performed for HCC and(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the expression of caspase-8 and -10 in rectal adenoma, adenocarcinoma and the corresponding normal mucosa tissue, and to clarify the relationship between their expression and clinicopathological parameters of rectal cancer. METHODS The expression of caspase-8 and -10 was determined by real-time RT-PCR and immunohistochemistry in(More)
