Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the leading cancer-related causes of death in the world. Recently, downregulation of microRNA-497 (miR-497) has been observed in CRC tissues. In this study, we found that miR-497 expression levels were downregulated in human CRC specimens compared to the adjacent normal tissues. MiR-497 expression levels were strongly(More)
High levels of arsenic in drinking water, soil, and air are associated with the higher incidences of several kinds of cancers worldwide, but the mechanism is yet to be fully discovered. Recently, a number of evidences show that dysregulation of microRNAs (miRNAs) induces carcinogenesis. In this study, we found miR-222 was upregulated in arsenic-transformed(More)
JSI-124, also known as cucurbitacin I, is a selective inhibitor of Janus kinase/signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (JAK/STAT3), and in vitro and in vivo studies have found that it has anti-tumor and anti-proliferative properties. However, the role of JSI124 in tumor-associated B cells has yet to be elucidated. The present study demonstrated(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the major histocompatibility complex class II (MHC II) antigen and costimulatory molecules expression on the surface of breast cancer cells. METHODS MHC II antigen and costimulatory molecule expression on five breast cancer cell lines including MCF-7, SK-BR-3, T47D, MDA-MB-435 and ZR-75-30 were detected through flow cytometery analysis,(More)
Breast cancer is one of the most frequently occurring malignant tumors affecting women's health. At least one million new cases are diagnosed each year. Therefore, research that aims to identify strategies that inhibit the growth of breast cancer cells has become a primary worldwide focus. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is regarded as a valuable(More)
Resveratrol has been widely studied in terms of it’s potential to slow the progression of many diseases. But little is known about the mechanism of action in neuropathic pain. Neuropathic pain is the main type of chronic pain associated with tissue injury. Calcium channels and calcium/caffeine-sensitive pools are associated with analgesic pathway involving(More)
Despite advances in the understanding of breast cancer, patients most commonly have a poor prognosis, particularly those with triple negative breast cancer (TNBC). microRNAs (miRNAs) are endogenous non‑coding small RNAs, and their aberrant expression is linked to numerous malignancies. In the present study, the expression levels of miR‑200c in patients with(More)
Exosomes are a family of bioactive vesicles that are secreted from various types of cell, including tumor cells. Exosomes derived from breast cancer cells have been demonstrated to perform important functions in tumor progression in vitro and in vivo. However, few studies exist regarding the function of exosomes in CD133+ breast cancer cells. In the present(More)
Flavonoids, which are polyphenolic compounds, have been reported to possess remarkable antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. Among the dietary flavonoids, fisetin (3,3',4',7-tetrahydroxyflavone) possesses a significant spectrum of biochemical and pharmacological actions. The present study aimed to investigate the antidepressant potential of fisetin(More)
