Tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) play critical roles in promoting tumor progression and invasion. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying TAM regulation remain to be further investigated and may make significant contributions to cancer treatment. Mammalian microRNAs (miRNAs) have recently been identified as important regulators of gene expression(More)
The reductive degradation of 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) was studied in an electro-biological system, a biological system and an electric catalytic system, respectively. Electrochemical characteristics were monitored by cyclic voltammetry and the intermediate products of 2,4-D degradation were determined by high speed liquid chromatography(More)
Cancer of the colon and rectum is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and accounts for approximately 10% of all cancer-related deaths. Although surgical resection or radiotherapy are potentially curative for localized disease, advanced colon cancer is currently associated with poor prognosis. Therefore, the development of a new and effective(More)
B7-H4, one of the costimulatory molecules of the B7 family, has been found to be widely expressed in many kinds of tumor tissues and to play an important part in tumor progression and poor prognosis. However, the role of B7-H4 in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) cells has not been elucidated. In this study, we found that, compared with normal(More)
BACKGROUND Our study aims to analyze the expression pattern, mechanism, and prognostic significance of melanoma-associated antigen MAGE-C1 and MAGE-C2 in breast cancer. METHODS Reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and immunohistochemistry were used to investigate the expressions of MAGE-C1 and MAGE-C2 in breast benign disease(More)
Forsythia suspensa root is used in the treatment of fever and jaundice in Traditional Chinese Medicine. In the present study, the anti-tumor activity of the ethanolic extract of Forsythia suspensa root (FSREE) against esophageal carcinoma cells was investigated in vitro and in vivo and its anti-cancer mechanism was examined. The results revealed that FSREE,(More)
The single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs6983267 and cancer-associated region long non-coding RNA (CARLo-5) are associated with various human cancers. This study aimed to investigate the expression of CARLo-5 in endometrial carcinoma (EC) and its relationship with clinicopathological features and patient survival. The association of the rs6983267 SNP with(More)
Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are emerging as important regulators in cellular processes, including the development, proliferation, and migration of cancer cells. We have demonstrated in a prior study that small nucleolar RNA host gene 5 (SNHG5) is dysregulated in gastric cancer (GC). To further explore the underlying mechanisms of SNGH5 function in the(More)
AIM To investigate the role of CCL5 secreted by tumor associated macrophages (TAMs) in gastric cancer, and to explore how CCL5/CCR5 axis modulates phenotypes of gastric cancer cells. METHODS Expression of CCL5 and TAM surface marker CD68 in gastric cancer tissues was examined using SP immunohistochemistry. Serum CCL5 levels of patients were assessed using(More)
Interleukin (IL)-27, composed of p28 and Epstein-Barr virus-induced gene 3 (EBI3) subunits, has diverse functions in regulating immune systems. Human melanoma cells have been shown to express both IL-27 receptor subunits, and growth inhibition by IL-27 was detected. We investigated whether forced expression of the(More)
