BACKGROUND Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma is one of the most common malignancies in the world. Studies have confirmed that there are many genes abnormally hypermethylated in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma. The objective is to detect methylation of the RASSF1A gene promoter and the expression of the DNA methyltransferase 1 (DNMT1) protein in(More)
Increasing attention is being placed on the use of adult stem cells due to their potential therapeutic applications for unmet medical needs. Among all adult stem cell types, umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (UCMSCs) can be collected easily and does not harm newborns and the mothers. The excellent pluripotency and proliferation potential of UCMSCs has(More)
UNLABELLED Human umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hUC-MSCs) have higher proliferation potency and lower immune resistance than human bone marrow MSCs and can differentiate into various functional cells. Many regulatory factors, including keratinocyte growth factor (KGF), are involved in the development of skin and cutaneous appendages.(More)
Tissue morphogenesis depends on precise regulation and timely co-ordination of cell division and also on the control of the direction of cell division. Establishment of polarity division axis, correct alignment of the mitotic spindle, segregation of fate determinants equally or unequally between daughter cells, are essential for the realization of oriented(More)
