The human glycoprotein, stanniocalcin 2 (STC2) plays multiple roles in several tumor types, however, its function and clinical significance in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remain unclear. In this study, we detected STC2 expression by quantitative real-time PCR and found STC2 was upregulated in HCC tissues, correlated with tumor size and multiplicity of(More)
OBJECTIVE Previous studies indicated that the relationship between lysyl oxidase-like 1 (LOXL1) gene polymorphisms and primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) remains inconsistent. In the present study, we aimed to perform a meta-analysis to investigate the association of LOXL1 polymorphisms with POAG risk. METHODS Literatures were electronically searched in(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a new class of prognostic and diagnostic biomarkers for many cancers. Recent studies have shown that miRNAs are highly stable in plasma/serum. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of miR-421 in osteosarcoma. We found that the serum expression levels of miR-421 were significantly higher in osteosarcoma patients than those(More)
Cases of Mediterranean Spotted Fever like rickettsioses, caused by Rickettsia monacensis, have become more common in the last 10 years. In China, natural infection of R. monacensis in various tick species has been confirmed but the vector(s) of R. monacensis have not been recorded. The prevalence of R. monacensis in >1500 Ixodidae ticks from central and(More)
Using 3′ and 5′ rapid amplification of cDNA ends (RACE) techniques, the full-length cDNA sequence of the Anman5A, a gene that encodes an acidophilic β-mannanase of Aspergillus niger LW-1 (abbreviated to AnMan5A), was identified from the total RNA. The cDNA sequence was 1417 bp in length, harboring 5′- and 3′-untranslated regions, as well as an open reading(More)
