Traumatic brain injury (TBI) initiates a complex series of neurochemical and signaling changes that lead to neuronal dysfunction and over-reactive astrocytes. In our study, homeodomain interacting protein kinase 2 (HIPK2) can interact with C-terminal binding protein 2 (CtBP2) in rat brain, which is a component of Wnt-regulated transcription. Up to now, the(More)
The isocitrate dehydrogenase 1 (IDH1) gene mutation occurs frequently in glioma. While some studies have demonstrated that IDH1 mutations are associated with prolonged survival, the mechanism remains unclear. In this study, we found that growth was significantly inhibited in glioma cells overexpressing the mutated IDH1 gene. Furthermore, these cells were(More)
Global genomic hypomethylation is a hallmark of cancer in humans. In the present study, the feasibility of measuring hypomethylation of Alu elements (Alu) in serum and its clinical utility were investigated. Tumor tissues and matched serum specimens from 65 glioma patients and serum samples from 30 healthy controls were examined for Alu hypomethylation by(More)
Paired box 3 (PAX3) is overexpressed in glioma tissues compared to normal brain tissues, however, the pathogenic role of PAX3 in human glioma cells remains to be elucidated. In this study, we selected the human glioma cell lines U251, U87, SHG-44, and the normal human astrocytes, 1800, which have differential PAX3 expression depending upon the person. SiRNA(More)
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) triggers a complex series of neurochemical and signaling changes that lead to neuronal dysfunction and overreactive astrocytes. In the current study, we showed that interactions between SCYL1-bp1 and Pirh2 are involved in central nervous system (CNS) injury and repair. Western blot and immunohistochemical analysis of an acute(More)
