This paper finds that concurrent with the rapid growing index investment in commodities markets since early 2000s, futures prices of non-energy commodities in the US became increasingly correlated with oil and this trend was significantly more pronounced for commodities in the two popular SP-GSCI and DJ-UBS commodity indices. This finding reflects a(More)
The long intergenic non-coding RNA LINC00312, also called NAG7, was first cloned by our group. Our previous studies have found that LINC00312 could inhibit proliferation and induce apoptosis in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) cells but also stimulate NPC cell invasion. However, the relevance of LINC00312 in NPC progression or in patient outcomes has not been(More)
Altered expression of long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) associated with human carcinogenesis. We performed a cDNA microarray analysis of lncRNA expression in 12 cases of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) and 4 non-tumor nasopharyngeal epitheliums. One lncRNA, actin filament associated protein 1 antisense RNA1 (AFAP1-AS1), was identified and selected for further(More)
Gene expression profiling had revealed that TGF-β superfamily type I receptor (also known as activin receptor-like kinase-1, ALK1) and TGFβR2 (TGF-β type II receptor) were down-regulated in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) (P < 0.05, respectively). However, no study with significantly large clinical samples to address the relevance of ALK1 and TGFβR2 in NPC(More)
LRRC4 (leucine rich repeat containing 4), a novel member of LRP (Leucine-rich repeat protein) superfamily, contains a conserved leucine-rich repeat (LRR) cassette and an immunoglobulin-like (IgC2) domain in its extracellular region. In the present study, we demonstrated that the N and C terminal LRR (LRRNT and LRRCT) are requisite for membrane and cytoplasm(More)
EBV is a key risk factor for many malignancy diseases such as nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) and Burkitt lymphoma (BL). EBV integration has been reported, but its scale and impact to cancer development is remains unclear. C666-1 (NPC cell line) and Raji (BL cell line) are commonly studied EBV-positive cancer cells. A rare few EBV integration sites in Raji(More)
Our previous study has shown that LRRC4 is a novel member of the leucine-rich repeat (LRR) superfamily and has the potential to suppress brain tumor growth. In order to further analyze the functions of LRRC4 on the maintenance of normal function and suppression of tumorigenesis in the central nervous system, we investigated alterations in gene expression(More)
