TGFBR2 serves as an initial regulator of the TGF-β signaling pathway, and loss or reduction of its expression leads to uncontrolled cell growth and invasion. TGFBR2 plays a crucial role in the carcinogenesis and malignant process of gastric cancer, but the mechanism remains unclear. In this study, we found that TGFBR2 protein levels were consistently(More)
OBJECTIVE The expression of tumor biomarkers may change after chemotherapy. However, whether secreted protein acidic and rich in cysteine (SPARC) expression changes after chemotherapy in gastric cancer (GC) is unclear. This study investigated the influence of chemotherapy on SPARC expression in GC. METHODS Immunohistochemistry was used to analyze SPARC(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been reported to be involved in each stage of tumor development in various types of cancers. We have previously showed that miR-16 is downregulated in cancer and acts as a tumor suppressor. Other studies indicated that hepatocyte growth factor (HGF)/c-Met is implicated in proliferation, migration, and other pathophysiological(More)
