Breast carcinoma is the most common female cancer with considerable metastatic potential. Discovery of new therapeutic approaches for treatment of metastatic breast cancer is still needed. Here, we reported our finding with niclosamide, an FDA approved anthelmintic drug. The potency of niclosamide on breast cancer was assessed in vitro and in vivo. In this(More)
Oxidative stress is believed to be an important inducer of cellular senescence and aging. Zinc finger protein 637 (Zfp637), which belongs to the Krüppel-like protein family, has been hypothesized to play a role in oxidative stress. Nevertheless, the precise function of Zfp637 has seldom been reported, and it remains unclear whether Zfp637 is involved in(More)
Melanoma is a highly malignant neoplasm of melanocytes with considerable metastatic potential and drug resistance, explaining the need for new candidates that inhibit tumor growth and metastasis. The signal transducer and activator of the transcription 3 (Stat3) signaling pathway plays an important role in melanoma and has been validated as promising(More)
Leukemia is the most common malignant proliferative disease in children. Our previous study found that miR-99a was up-regulated in pediatric primary AML using microRNA expression profiles. Up to date, although there is a certain number of reports on microRNA expression features and functions in pediatric acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and chronic myeloid(More)
We propose an adaptive Bayesian hidden Markov model for fully unsupervised part-of-speech (POS) induction. The proposed model with its inference algorithm has two extensions to the first-order Bayesian HMM with Dirichlet priors. First our algorithm infers the optimal number of hidden states from the training corpus rather than fixes the dimensionality of(More)
New chemotherapeutic compounds are needed to combat multidrug-resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb), which remains a serious public-health challenge. Decaprenylphosphoryl-β-D-ribose 2'-epimerase (DprE1 enzyme) has been characterized as an attractive therapeutic target to address this urgent demand. Herein, we have identified a new class of DprE1(More)
Enhancer of zeste homolog 2 (EZH2) is a candidate oncogenic driver due to its prevalent overexpression and aberrant repression of tumor suppressor genes in diverse cancers. Therefore, blocking EZH2 enzyme activity may present a valid therapeutic strategy for the treatment of cancers with EZH2 overexpression including breast cancers. Here, we described(More)
In the title compound, C(15)H(9)F(4)N(3)O(2)S, the N,N'-disubstituted thio-urea fragment adopts a cis,trans geometry, stabilized by an intra-molecular N-H⋯O hydrogen bond to the carbonyl O atom of the tetra-fluoro-benzoyl group. The central thio-urea group makes dihedral angles of 47.79 (7) and 35.54 (8)° with the two aromatic rings. In the crystal,(More)
