Human miR-34c has been reported to be associated with various human malignancies; however, it remains unknown whether miR-34c is involved in chemoresistance in gastric cancer. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of miR-34c in gastric cancer. The adenosine triphosphate-based tumor chemosensitivity assay was used to measure drug sensitivity in(More)
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most common malignancies worldwide and a leading cause of cancer death. Despite decades of intensive investigations, effective interventional options are still limited and patient prognosis remains poor. Tanshinone I, an active compound from traditional Chinese herbal medicine Salvia miltiorrhiza Bunge, has been shown(More)
Wheat-Agropyron cristatum 7P disomic addition line Ⅱ-5-1, derived from the distant hybridization between A. cristatum (2n = 4x = 28, PPPP) and the common wheat cv. Fukuhokomugi (Fukuho), displays numerous desirable agronomic traits, including enhanced thousand-grain weight, smaller flag leaf, and enhanced tolerance to drought. In order to transfer these(More)
Over-expression or amplification of ERBB2 is observed in multifarious carcinomas. However, the molecular mechanism of ERBB2 downregulation in ERBB2-positive cancers remains obscure. This experiment investigated the suppressive role of miR-3622b-5p in ERBB2-positive breast and gastric cancers. The luciferase activity of ERBB2 3'-untranslated region-based(More)
Recent studies show that many microRNAs (miRNAs) are found to play important roles in breast cancer, however, most of miRNAs are not investigated completely. In the present study, significant down-regulation of miR-520a-3p was found in the breast cancer tissues and cell lines. The restoration of miR-520a-3p expression in breast cancer cells could inhibit(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to investigate the expression level of maspin mRNA in pulmonary adenocarcinoma and to clarify its clinical significance in prediction of prognosis. MATERIAL/METHODS RNA was extracted from formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tumor tissue blocks of 30 pairs of pulmonary adenocarcinoma (AC) tissues and adjacent(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical effectiveness and side effects of paclitaxel liposome and capecitabine in the treatment of 34 cases with advanced gastric cancer. METHOD For 64 patients with advanced gastric cancer, 30 cases were treated with docetaxel, cisplatin, and 5-fluorouracil (DCF group, control group), and 34 cases were treated with paclitaxel(More)
