Stem cell genetics research may be critical to our understanding of carcinogenesis, as both stem cells and cancer cells possess the ability to self-renew. Recent discoveries have indicated that the piwi family of genes plays an essential role in stem cell self-renewal in diverse organisms. The hiwi gene, the human homolog of the piwi family, participates in(More)
N-α-Acetyltransferase 10 protein (Naa10p/ARD1), the catalytic subunit of N-acetyltransferase A, catalyzes both N-α-acetylation and ε-acetylation, as well as autoacetylation. Naa10p is involved in controlling cell proliferation, apoptosis, autophagy and neuronal development. Our group and others had reported prognostic value of Naa10p expression in various(More)
To assess whether habitual sleep duration or insomnia increase the incidence of hypertension. PubMed, EMBASE and Cochrane were searched without language restriction. Prospective cohort studies of adults with at least a 1-year follow-up duration were included. Habitual sleep duration or symptoms of insomnia were assessed as baseline exposure, and the outcome(More)
Arrest defective 1 (ARD1) is an acetyltransferase involved in cell cycle control in yeast. ARD1 interacts with human N-acetyltransferase (NATH) to form a functional N-terminal acetyltransferase complex. Recently it had been linked with proliferation and apoptosis in mammalian cells, but its function in cancer development remains unclear. To evaluate(More)
BACKGROUND HIWI is a member of PIWI gene family and its expression is found in various tumors, indicating that it may play a pivotal role in tumor development. This study was designated to examine HIWI protein expression profile in several cancer cell lines and its prognostic value for patients with colorectal cancer. METHODS Totally 270 patients who(More)
N-α-Acetyltransferase 10 protein (Naa10p, also called arrest-defective 1), the catalytic subunit of N-acetyltransferase A, is a critical regulator of cell death and proliferation. Naa10p is also shown to regulate cancer metastasis by inhibiting cell motility; however, its role in cancer metastasis is not fully understood. In this study, we found that high(More)
A recombinant inbred line (RIL) population was produced based on a wide cross between the rapid-cycling and self-compatible genotypes L58, a Caixin vegetable type, and R-o-18, a yellow sarson oil type. A linkage map based on 160 F7 lines was constructed using 100 Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), 130 AFLP®, 27 InDel, and 13 publicly available SSR(More)
AIM The expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and its receptors KDR and Flt-1 by gastric carcinoma tissues and different gastric carcinoma cell lines was detected to elucidate the molecular mechanism of this growth factor in promoting tumor growth. METHODS The expression of VEGF, Flt-1 and KDR was determined by reverse(More)
PRL-3 is a newly identified protein tyrosine phosphatase associated with tumor metastasis. It is over-expressed in various cancers, such as colorectal cancer, gastric cancer, and ovarian cancer, and is correlated with the progression and survival of cancers. Although PRL-3 plays a causative role in promoting cancer cell invasion and metastasis, the(More)
Phosphatase of regenerating liver-3 (PRL-3) plays a causative role in tumor metastasis, but the underlying mechanisms are not well understood. In our previous study, we observed that PRL-3 could decrease tyrosine phosphorylation of integrin β1 and enhance activation of ERK1/2 in HEK293 cells. Herein we aim to explore the association of PRL-3 with integrin(More)
