KLF5 (Krüppel-like factor 5) plays critical roles in normal and cancer cell proliferation through modulating cell cycle progression. In this study, we demonstrated that curcumin targeted KLF5 by promoting its proteasome degradation, but not by inhibiting its transcription in bladder cancer cells. We also demonstrated that lentivirus-based knockdown of KLF5(More)
Abundant evidence has demonstrated critical roles of KLF5 in regulating cell proliferation in various cancers, however, its additional roles in other aspects of cancer development remain to be further clarified. In this study, we found that KLF5 was essential for cancer cell-endothelial cell interaction in vitro and tumor angiogenesis in nude mice based on(More)
PrLZ/PC-1 is a newly identified, prostate-specific and androgen-inducible gene. Our previous study showed that PrLZ can enhance the proliferation and invasive capability of LNCaP cells, contributing to the development of prostate cancer. However, its potential role in androgen-independent processes remains elusive. In this study, we showed that PrLZ(More)
Altered DAB2IP gene expression often detected in prostate cancer (PCa) is due to epigenetic silencing. In this study, we unveil a new mechanism leading to the loss of DAB2IP protein; an oncogenic S-phase kinase-associated protein-2 (Skp2) as E3 ubiquitin ligase plays a key regulator in DAB2IP degradation. In order to unveil the role of Skp2 in the turnover(More)
PURPOSE Visual prostheses offer a possibility of restoring useful reading ability to the blind. The psychophysics of simulating reading with a prosthesis using pixelized text has attracted attention recently. This study was an examination of the reading accuracy and efficiency of pixelized Chinese paragraphs after different parameters were altered. (More)
BACKGROUND Human cancer cells maintain telomeres to protect cells from senescence through telomerase activity (TA) or alternative lengthening of telomeres (ALT) in different cell types. Moreover, cellular senescence can be bypassed by Epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) during cancer progression in diverse solid tumors. However, it has not been(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the response properties of the electrically evoked potentials (EEPs) elicited by intraorbital optic nerve stimulation with penetrating electrodes using different stimulus parameters. METHODS Visually evoked potentials (VEPs) were recorded as a control and for comparative purposes. Teflon-coated tungsten wire electrodes (100 microm(More)
Silibinin, a dietary cancer chemopreventive flavonoid from the seeds of milk thistle, has been reported to exhibit anti-metastatic effects on renal cell carcinoma (RCC), but the mechanism underlying this phenomenon is not fully understood. The present study aimed at examining the potential role of autophagy in regulating silibinin-induced anti-metastatic(More)
Learning dictionaries from the training data has led to promising results for pattern classification tasks. Dimensionality reduction is also an important issue for pattern classification. However, most existing methods perform dimensionality reduction (DR) and dictionary learning (DL) independently, which may result in not fully exploiting the(More)
