OBJECTIVE To identify disease-related genes and immune-regulatory pathways in the pathogenesis of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) by using gene expression profiling and protein-protein interaction analysis. METHODS Peripheral white blood cell gene expression profiles of 10 SLE patients were determined by oligonucleotide microarray analysis. Clustering(More)
Anillin (ANLN), an actin-binding protein, is required for cytokinesis. Recently, ANLN has been identified as a biomarker in diverse human cancers; however, the precise role of ANLN in breast cancer remains unclear. In this study, we firstly detected the expression of ANLN in 71 patients with breast cancer by immunohistochemistry, and found ANLN was highly(More)
BACKGROUND Brain-derived neurotropic factor (BDNF) was originally described in the nervous system but has been shown to be expressed in ovary tissues recently, acting as a paracrine/autocrine regulator required for developments of follicles and oocytes. Although it is generally accepted that chronic stress impairs female reproduction and decreases the(More)
