BRAFV600E Mutation and Its Association with Clinicopathological Features of Colorectal Cancer: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
Background Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a heterogeneous disease with multiple underlying causative genetic mutations. The B-type Raf proto-oncogene (BRAF) plays an important role in theExpand

Up-regulation of CXCR4 expression in PC-3 cells by stromal-derived factor-1alpha (CXCL12) increases endothelial adhesion and transendothelial migration: role of MEK/ERK signaling pathway-dependent
The chemokine stromal-derived factor-1alpha (SDF-1alpha/CXCL-12) and its receptor, CXCR4, play a crucial role in adhesion and transendothelium migration (TEM) of prostate cancer cells. We tested theExpand

Selective blockade of T-type Ca2+ channels suppresses human breast cancer cell proliferation.
We have measured the expression of T-type Ca2+ channel mRNA in breast cancer cell lines (MCF-7 (ERalpha+) using Western blot and quantitative real-time PCR (Q-RT-PCR). These results revealed that theExpand

The TGF-β co-receptor, CD109, promotes internalization and degradation of TGF-β receptors.
Transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) is implicated in numerous pathological disorders, including cancer and mediates a broad range of biological responses by signaling through the type I and II TGF-βExpand

miR-494 promotes cell proliferation, migration and invasion, and increased sorafenib resistance in hepatocellular carcinoma by targeting PTEN.
MicroRNA-494 (miR-494) acts as an oncomiR and is involved in tumor development, progression and metastasis, and confers resistance to chemotherapeutic drugs by targeting a number of molecules inExpand

Mitophagy Controls the Activities of Tumor Suppressor p53 to Regulate Hepatic Cancer Stem Cells.
Autophagy is required for benign hepatic tumors to progress into malignant hepatocellular carcinoma. However, the mechanism is unclear. Here, we report that mitophagy, the selective removal ofExpand

Expression of OCT4 pseudogenes in human tumours: lessons from glioma and breast carcinoma
The POU family transcription factor OCT4 is required for maintaining the pluripotency of embryonic stem cells and for generating induced pluripotent stem cells. Although OCT4 is clearly shown to beExpand

Tumor necrosis factor-α 238 G/A polymorphism and gastric cancer risk: a meta-analysis
Though many studies were performed to assess the association between tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) 238 G/A polymorphism and gastric cancer risk, there were no conclusive findings. A meta-analysisExpand
