The vsa genes of Mycoplasma pulmonis encode the V-1 lipoproteins. Most V-1 proteins contain repetitive domains and are thought to be involved in mycoplasma-host cell interactions. Previously, we have reported the isolation and characterization of six vsa genes comprising a 10-kb region of the genome of M. pulmonis strain KD735-15. In the current study,(More)
Xeroderma pigmentosum complementation group C (XPC) protein is an important DNA damage recognition factor in nucleotide excision repair. Deletion of XPC is associated with early stages of human lung carcinogenesis, and reduced XPC mRNA levels predict poor patient outcome for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, the mechanisms linking loss of XPC(More)
The level of microRNA-93 (miR-93) in tumors has been recently reported to be negatively correlated with survival of lung cancer patients. Considering that the most devastating aspect of lung cancer is metastasis, which can be promoted by transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β)-induced epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT), we sought to determine whether(More)
Radiotherapy resistance is one of the major factors limiting the efficacy of radiotherapy in lung cancer patients. The extensive investigations indicate the diversity in the mechanisms underlying radioresistance. Here, we revealed that DNA damage binding protein 2 (DDB2) is a potential regulator in the radiosensitivity of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)(More)
