Our previous study revealed that knockdown of CABYR-a/b increases the chemosensitivity of lung cancer cells through inactivation of Akt. Here, we demonstrated that depletion of CABYR-a/b significantly increased DR5 expression and sensitized lung cancer cells to TRAIL-induced apoptosis in vitro and/or in vivo. Importantly, treatment with AD5-10, a(More)
S100A7 is highly expressed in squamous cell carcinomas (SCC) and is related to the terminal differentiation of keratinocytes. However, its characteristic and function in SCC is not very known. In this present study, we used immunohistochemistry to examine the expression of S100A7 in 452 SCC specimens, including the lung, esophagus, oral cavity, skin,(More)
YAP is an oncogenic transcriptional co-activator and is inhibited by the Hippo pathway. Recent studies have revealed that YAP is also a sensor of cell morphology and cell density and can be phosphorylated by cytoskeleton reorganization. Our previous study demonstrated that S100A7 was upregulated in several squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) specimens and was(More)
Our previous study revealed that S100A7 was selectively expressed in lung squamous cell carcinoma tissues but not in adenocarcinoma. Thus far, the functions of S100A7 in lung cancer have remained largely unknown. Here, we reveal that S100A7 overexpression facilitates the transdifferentiation from adenocarcinoma (ADC) to squamous carcinoma (SCC) in several(More)
S100A7 is expressed in many squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs). Our previous study revealed that S100A7 was dramatically induced in several SCC cells and activation of the Hippo pathway significantly promoted S100A7 in epidermoid carcinoma cells. However, whether the Hippo pathway regulates S100A7 expression in SCCs remains largely unknown. Here, we uncover(More)
Interspecific hybrids often produce extensive gametic variation due to poor chromosome pairing and unbalanced chromosome segregation. To elucidate the influence of interspecific hybridisation on pollen variation in Populus L., we compared pollen size among three P. deltoides Marsh. clones, two P. nigra L. clones, and three P. deltoides × P. nigra hybrids(More)
Epicardial progenitor cells (EpiCs) have a crucial role in cardiac development and vasculature formation. Here we detected the expression of Angiotensin II (Ang II) receptors AT1 and AT2 on EpiCs and demonstrated that AngII could increase the expression of smooth muscle specific markers, including α-smooth muscle actin (α-SMA) and myosin heavy chain 11(More)
