KCNJ2/Kir2.1, a member of the classical inwardly rectifying potassium channel family, is commonly expressed in a wide range of tissues and cell types. Previous studies indicated that Kir2.1 may be associated with SCLC multidrug resistance (MDR). However, whether Kir2.1 can regulate MDR and its underlying mechanisms remain poorly understood in SCLC.(More)
The expression levels of miR-365 vary in different malignancies. Herein, we found that miR-365 was overexpressed in both cells and clinical specimens of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). We demonstrated that the HaCaT(pre-miR-365-2) cell line, which overexpressed miR-365, could induce subcutaneous tumors in vivo. Antagomir-365, an anti-miR-365(More)
Secretagogin (SCGN) has recently been identified to play a crucial role in cell apoptosis, receptor signaling and differentiation. However, its clinical significance and functional roles in SCLC chemoresistance remain unknown. Here we examined the expression of SCGN in clinical samples from SCLC patients and evaluated its relation with clinical prognosis.(More)
PRO2000/ANCCA may be an important candidate gene which located within a region of chromosome 8q in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, its significance remains unclear. The aim of this study was to explore the clinical significance of PRO2000/ANCCA expression in HCC. The correlations of PRO2000/ANCCA expression with clinicopathological factors and(More)
The origin of rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) remains controversial. However, specific microRNAs (miRNAs) are downregulated in RMS and it is possible that re-expression of these miRNAs may lead to differentiation. Transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) is known to block differentiation of RMS. We therefore analyzed miRNA microarrays of RMS cell lines with or without(More)
KH-type splicing regulatory protein (KHSRP) is a multifunctional RNA-binding protein that has a role in tumorigenesis of small cell lung cancer. The KHSRP protein level was shown to be significantly increased in small cell lung cancer (SCLC) tumor tissues compared with normal lung tissues by immunohistochemical staining. Moreover, KHSRP protein levels were(More)
Multidrug resistance (MDR) is a major obstacle to the treatment of small cell lung cancer (SCLC). EPHA3 has been revealed to be the most frequently mutated Eph receptor gene in lung cancer with abnormal expression. Growing evidence indicates that the signaling proteins of EPHA3 downstream, including PI3K, BMX and STAT3, play crucial roles in tumorigenesis(More)
We aimed to identify endometrioid endometrial carcinoma (EEC)-related gene signatures using a multi-step miRNA-mRNA regulatory network construction approach. Pathway analysis showed that 61 genes were enriched on many carcinoma-related pathways. Among the 14 highest scoring gene signatures, six genes had been previously shown to be endometrial carcinoma. By(More)
Tumor-associated calcium signal transducer 2 (TACSTD2), a calcium signal transducer, is universally expressed in stratified squamous epithelia of many organs, including skin, esophagus and cervix. Although TACSTD2, was reported to be overexpressed in many epithelial tumors, which has increased interest in using it as a molecular target for cancer therapy,(More)
