Human Phospholipid scramblase 1 (PLSCR1) is an α/β interferon-inducible protein that mediates antiviral activity against RNA viruses including vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) and encephalomyocarditis virus (EMCV). In the present study, we investigated the antiviral activity of PLSCR1 protein against HBV (Hepatitis B virus). Firstly, PLSCR1 mRNA and protein(More)
We describe an improved process to produce 2'-O-(2-methoxyethyl)-pyrimidines. Starting with commercially available O-2,2'-anhydro-5-methyluridine and tris-(2-methoxyethyl)borate, we modified the ring-opening reaction conditions and changed to a continuous extraction purification method to give 2'-O-(2-methaxyethyl)-5-methyluridine. The dimethoxytritylation(More)
An efficient process to synthesize 5'-O-dimethoxytrityl-N4-benzoyl-5-methyl-2'-deoxycytidine in high yield and quality is described. Final benzoylation was improved by developing a method to selectively hydrolyze benzoyl ester impurities. This inexpensive approach was scaled up to multikilogram quantities for routine use in oligonucleotide therapeutics.
Hepatocellular carcinoma is an aggressive neoplasm and is one of the most common human cancers. Recently, long non-coding RNAs have been demonstrated to participate in pathogenesis of many diseases including the progression in several cancers. In this study, we found that the long non-coding RNA colon cancer-associated transcript 1 was upregulated in(More)
The aim of the study is to identify the differentially expressed microRNAs (miRNAs) between hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) samples and controls and provide new diagnostic potential miRNAs for HCC. The miRNAs expression profile data GSE20077 included 7 HCC samples, 1 HeLa sample and 3 controls. Differentially expressed miRNAs (DE-miRNAs) were identified by(More)
Coxsackievirus A16 (CVA16), together with enterovirus type 71 (EV71), is responsible for most cases of hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD) worldwide. Recent findings suggest that the recombination between CVA16 and EV71, and the co-circulation of these two viruses may have contributed to the increase of HFMD cases in China over the past few years. It is(More)
Enterovirus 71 (EV71) is a highly infectious virus that is a major cause of hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD), which can lead to severe neurological complications. Currently, there is no effective therapy against EV71. Five antisense oligodeoxynucleotides targeting the 5′-terminal conserved domain of the viral genome were designed using a method based on(More)
RNF43 is a novel tumor suppressor protein and known to be expressed in a multitude of tissue and dysregulated in cancers of these organs including ovarian and colorectal tissues. RNF43 expression has been shown to be expressed in mutated forms in several pancreatic cell lines. RNF43, by virtue of being an ubiquitin ligase, has the potential to(More)
OBJECTIVE The transcription factor FOXF2 is reported to be down-regulated in HCC. Its deficiency is correlated with shorter disease-free survival and overall survival of HCC patients; however, the mechanism remains to be elucidated. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this study, we performed qRT-PCR and western blotting to confirm the down-regulated FOXF2 in HCC(More)
