ZFX (zinc finger protein, X-linked) gene locus on the human X chromosome is structurally similar to the zinc finger protein, Y-linked gene, which may constitute the primary sex-determining signal. However, the pathological roles of the dysfunction of ZFX gene in human disease such as cancer have not been addressed. Here, we analyzed the expression of ZFX in(More)
CONCLUSIONS Cervical lymph node metastatic rates tend to increase by T stage in cN0 glottic laryngeal carcinoma (GLC). Moreover, cervical lymph node metastasis (LNM) shows a sequential pattern according to the regions involved and LNM affects the prognosis. OBJECTIVES To investigate factors that contribute to LNM of N0 (cN0) T2-T4 GLC and their effect on(More)
OBJECTIVE To understand the effects of microcystin (MC) in drinking water on health of human beings. METHODS In Taixing, a cross-sectional study was conducted in two middle schools with different types of drinking water, from which 111 and 92 students were randomly selected and investigated. Blood samples from all individuals were collected and tested for(More)
BACKGROUND Laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC) is the most common type in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC), and the development and progression of LSCC are multistep processes accompanied by changes of molecular biology. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the molecular basis of tumorigenesis and regional lymph node(More)
To investigate the role of CUG-binding protein 1 (CUGBP1) in human laryngeal cancer, we employed lentivirus-mediated short hairpin RNA (shRNA) to knockdown CUGBP1 expression in Hep-2 cells. Depletion of CUGBP1 remarkably inhibited the proliferation of Hep-2 cells. CUGBP1 knockdown induced cell cycle arrest in S phase, especially in the sub-G1 phase,(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify the genes differentially expressed and underlying molecular mechanism in laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma by using cDNA microarrays. METHODS Using Illumina Human HT-12 BeadChip, gene expressions were detected in ten pairs of laryngeal cancer tissues and adjacent normal tissues. Total RNA was extracted and reverse-transcribed into(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of 5-Aza-2'-deoxycytidine (5-Aza-Cdr) and trichostatin A (TSA) combined with p53-expressing adenovirus (Ad-p53) on Hep-2 cell line in vivo and in vitro, in order to explore its possibility in biological treatment of laryngocarcinoma. METHODS Effects of 5-Aza-Cdr and TSA in combination with Ad-p53 on Hep-2 cell line in(More)
MicroRNAs (MiRNAs) have been recognized to regulate cancer initiation and progression in carcinogenesis as either oncogenes or tumor suppressor genes, but their role in hypopharyngeal cancer development is not clearly defined. To determine whether miRNA-203 can promote tumor growth in human hypopharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma, we conducted experiments on(More)
A proliferation-inducing ligand (APRIL) is a member of the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) family. Recent studies have implied that APRIL is closely related to solid tumors and hematological tumors, indicating that APRIL could be a potential marker to diagnose glottic malignant disease. The purpose of this study was to investigate the difference of the APRIL(More)
Long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) plays an important role in tumorigenesis. However, the expression pattern and function of lncRNAs in laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC) are still unclear. To investigate the aberrantly expressed lncRNAs and mRNAs in advanced LSCC, we screened lncRNA and mRNA expression profiles in 9 pairs of primary Stage IVA LSCC tissues(More)
