Glioblastoma is the most frequent and malignant glioma in adults. To develop an effective gene therapy strategy for glioblastoma, we investigated the anti-proliferative effects of phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) restoration and siRNAs specifically targeting PIK3CB and PIK3CA on PTEN-deficient glioblastoma cells in vitro and in subcutaneous xenografts.(More)
We previously reported that 7-hydroxy-5, 4'-dimethoxy-2-arylbenzofuran (HDAB) purified from Livistona chinensis is a key active agent. The present study investigated the function and molecular mechanism of HDAB. HDAB treatment of cervical cancer cells resulted in S phase arrest and apoptosis, together with cyclin A2 and CDK2 upregulation. Cyclin A2 siRNA(More)
Rabies virus is the causative agent of rabies, a central nervous system disease that is almost invariably fatal. Currently vaccination is the most effective strategy for preventing rabies, and vaccines are most commonly produced from cultured cells. Although the vaccine strains employed in China include CTN, aG, PM and PV, there are no reports of strains(More)
Glioblastoma multiforme is the most common and aggressive type of primary brain tumor. Uncontrolled activation of the PI3K/Akt signaling pathway resulting from genetic alterations in phosphatase and tensin homolog deleted on chromosome 10 (PTEN) and epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) correlates with poor prognosis and resistance to chemotherapy and(More)
