Expansins are cell wall proteins that promote cell wall loosening by inducing pH-dependent cell wall extension and stress relaxation. Expansins are required in a series of physiological developmental processes in higher plants such as seed germination. Here we identified an Arabidopsis expansin gene AtEXPA2 that is exclusively expressed in germinating seeds(More)
BACKGROUND This study aimed to investigate the molecular structural relationship between cell adhesive molecule CD44 and Lewis y antigen, and determine the effects of Lewis y antigen on CD44-mediated adhesion and spreading of ovarian cancer cell line RMG-I and the Lewis y antigen-overexpressed cell line RMG-I-H. METHODS The expression of CD44 in RMG-I and(More)
OBJECTIVE To detect the expression and clinical significances of Lewis y antigen and integrin αv, β3 in epithelial ovarian tumors, and to explore the expression correlation between Lewis y antigen and integrin αv, β3. METHODS Immunohistochemical staining was performed in 95 cases of epithelial ovarian cancer, 37 cases of borderline tumors, 20 cases of(More)
OBJECTIVES To measure Lewis y antigen and CD44 antigen expression in epithelial ovarian carcinoma and to correlate the levels of these antigens with clinical response to chemotherapy. METHODS The study cases included 34 cases of ovarian carcinoma with resistance to chemotherapeutic drugs, 6 partially drug-sensitive cases, and 52 drug-sensitive cases (92(More)
The objective of this study was to examine the expression levels of RE1-silencing transcription factor (REST) and class III β-tubulin (TUBB3) in ovarian cancer and to determine if there is a correlation between their expression and resistance to chemotherapy in ovarian cancer. The protein expression of REST and TUBB3 in ovarian cancer was detected by(More)
Lewis (y) antigen is a difucosylated oligosaccharide present on the plasma membrane, and its overexpression is frequently found in human cancers and has been shown to be associated with poor prognosis. Our previous studies have shown that Lewis (y) antigen plays a positive role in the process of invasion and metastasis of ovarian cancer cells. However, the(More)
This study is to investigate the effect of miRNA-24 on endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) expression and vascular endothelial cell proliferation. Constructed high expression miRNA-24 plasmids were introduced into human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) by liposome. Cell numbers were counted by a Hemocytometer, and cell proliferation was(More)
