Drosophila Enabled (Ena) was first identified as a genetic suppressor of mutations in the Abelson tyrosine kinase and subsequently was shown to be a member of the Ena/vasodilator-stimulated phosphoprotein family of proteins. All members of this family have a conserved domain organization, bind the focal adhesion protein zyxin, and localize to focal(More)
Cepharanthine is a medicinal plant-derived natural compound which possesses potent anti-cancer properties. However, there is little report about its effects on lung cancer cells. In this study, we investigated the effects of cepharanthine on the cell viability and apoptosis in human non-small-cell lung cancer H1299 and A549 cells. It was found that(More)
The aim of this study was to find a surgical approach to a vertical segment of the facial nerve (VFN) with a relatively wide visual field and small lesion by studying the location and structure of VFN with cross-sectional anatomy. High-resolution spiral computed tomographic multiplane reformation was used to reform images that were parallel to the Frankfort(More)
The cinobufagin (CB) has a broad spectrum of cytotoxicity to inhibit cell proliferation of various human cancer cell lines, but the molecular mechanisms still remain elusive. Here we observed that CB inhibited the cell proliferation and tumor growth, but induced cell cycle arrest and apoptosis in a dose-dependent manner in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)(More)
Costunolide is a sesquiterpene lactone, which possesses potent anti-cancer properties. However, there is little report about its effects on esophageal cancer. In our study, we investigated the effects of costunolide on the cell viability, cell cycle, and apoptosis in human esophageal cancer Eca-109 cells. It was found that costunolide inhibited the growth(More)
Purpose. To evaluate the efficacy of intravitreal melphalan for vitreous seeds from retinoblastoma in Chinese patients. Methods. This is a retrospective review of 17 consecutive Chinese patients (19 eyes) with viable vitreous seeds from retinoblastoma. The patients received multiple intravitreal injections of 20 ug melphalan. Results. The International(More)
Hyperhomocysteinemia is characterized by an abnormally high level of homocysteine (Hcy) in the blood and is associated with cardiovascular diseases such as atherosclerosis. Endothelial dysfunction may lead to the pro-atherogenic effects associated with hyperhomocysteinemia. Endothelial dysfunction induced by Hcy has been previously investigated; however,(More)
Isoalantolactone has recently been revealed to induce apoptosis in several types of cancer. However, little is reported on its anti-tumor potential on human lung cancer. Our present study was designed to investigate its effects on human lung squamous carcinoma SK-MES-1 cells. We found that Isoalantolactone induced cellular and DNA morphological changes and(More)
