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)
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)
Real-time detection of low-concentration pathogenic/toxic bioparticles is important for deterring infectious diseases and bioterrorism, which is difficult to achieve for lab-on-a-chip. Currently sensitivity is achieved through time-consuming culturing or sophisticated processing, often unfeasible under field conditions. By microfluidic convection of(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)
Zinc finger protein, X-linked (ZFX) is a transcriptional factor involved in many physiological processes such as embryonic stem cell survival and self-renewal. Though ZFX dysfunctions have been identified in variant human diseases and especially in cancers, its pathological roles have not been fully addressed. Here, we explored the relationship between ZFX(More)
Tumor necrosis factor superfamily member 13 (TNFSF13) modulates cell proliferation and apoptosis and participates in the pathogenesis of solid tumors, but its role in laryngeal cancer development is not clearly defined. In order to investigate whether TNFSF13 can be used as a biomarker for diagnosis and prognosis in laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC)(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)
