Centrosomal Aurora-A (Aur-A) kinase ensures proper spindle assembly and accurate chromosome segregation in mitosis. Overexpression of Aur-A leads to centrosome amplification, aberrant spindle, and consequent genetic instability. In the present study, Aur-A was found to be overexpressed in laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC). Moreover, Aur-A expression(More)
BACKGROUND The mitotic Aurora-A kinase exerts crucial functions in maintaining mitotic fidelity. As a bona fide oncoprotein, Aurora-A aberrant overexpression leads to oncogenic transformation. Yet, the mechanisms by which Aurora-A enhances cancer cell survival remain to be elucidated. RESULTS Here, we found that Aurora-A overexpression was closely(More)
Specificity protein 1 (SP1) is an essential transcription factor that regulates multiple cancer-related genes. Because aberrant expression of SP1 is related to cancer development and progression, we focused on SP1 expression in gastric carcinoma and its correlation with disease outcomes. Although patient survival decreased as SP1 expression increased(More)
Mechanistic investigations have shown that, upon agonist activation, hydroxy-carboxylic acid receptor-1(HCA1) couples to a Gi protein and inhibits adenylate cyclase activity, leading to inhibition of liberation of free fatty acid. However, the underlying molecular mechanisms for HCA1 signaling remain largely unknown. Using CHO-K1 cells stably expressing(More)
PTEN is a dual specificity phosphatase and is implicated in inflammation and apoptosis of cerebral ischemia and reperfusion (I/R) injury. Bisperoxovanadium (Bpv), a specific inhibitor of PTEN's phosphatase activity, has demonstrated powerful neuroprotective properties. We investigated the neuroprotective roles of Bpv in the rat model of middle cerebral(More)
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have been investigated in the treatment of numerous autoimmune diseases. However, the immune properties of MSCs on the development of asthma have remained to be fully elucidated. Airway dendritic cells (DCs) have an important role in the pathogenesis of allergic asthma, and disrupting their function may be a novel therapeutic(More)
Key scientific objectives of soybean biology research are to identify and define the functions of soybean genes, and uncover when and how genes work together to produce phenotypic traits. Novel omics and biotechnology tools offer enormous potential to investigate the regulatory networks controlling agronomic traits in soybean. Rapid progress in soybean(More)
