Metastasis-associated in colon cancer-1 (MACC1) is a newly identified oncogene, and little is known about its role in gastric cancer (GC). Our study was performed to investigate whether MACC1 influences the prognosis of GC patients and to explore the potential mechanisms involved. MACC1 expression was verified to be higher in GC tissues than in adjacent(More)
XB130 is a newly characterized adaptor protein that was reported to promote thyroid tumor growth, but its role in the progression of other kinds of cancer such as gastric cancer (GC) remains unknown. Accordingly, we investigated the association between XB130 expression and the prognosis of GC patients. The subjects were 411 patients with GC in stages I to(More)
This study was designed to assess the impact of several molecular markers and clinicopathological characteristics on postoperative survival of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Postoperative clinical data of 64 patients with HCC were retrospectively analyzed. K-ras, PIK3CA, and BRAF gene mutations in surgically resected specimens of the 64(More)
BACKGROUND Recent studies have reported that metallic nanoparticles and ions from cobalt-chromium (CoCr) alloy prostheses had potential adverse effects. However, the biological effects of CoCr nanoparticles on male reproductive function remain unclear. The objective of this study is to investigate the reproductive toxicity in adult male rats following(More)
This study investigated which of the reciprocal stimuli between articular chondrocytes (ACs) and mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) played the more important role in enhancing cartilage matrix formation, and examined the relative importance of physical contact and soluble factors in the co-culture system. Rat ACs and bone marrow MSCs with green fluorescent(More)
This work aimed to investigate the role of the Ras signaling pathway in cetuximab resistance in human nasopharyngeal carcinoma (hNPC). An hNPC 5-8F cell line was induced by stepwise exposure to increasing doses of cetuximab. Western blot was conducted to detect protein levels. Our results are as follows: cetuximab-resistant hNPC 5-8F/Erbitux cell lines were(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish a gastric cancer cell line with stable expression of metastasis-associated in colon cancer 1 (MACC1) and detect the changes in tumor-related gene expression profiles for investigating the possible regulation mechanisms between MACC1 and the differentially expressed genes. METHODS The full-length MACC1 cDNA was amplified from human(More)
Osteoarthritis (OA) is an age-related joint disease that is characterised by the degeneration of articular chondrocytes. Ginsenosides, the most important pharmacological ingredients of ginseng, have been proven to provide effective therapy for neurodegenerative diseases and can inhibit cell apoptosis. We investigated whether ginsenoside Rb1 can modulate(More)
BACKGROUND Trastuzumab, a humanized antibody targeting HER2, exhibits remarkable therapeutic efficacy against HER2-positive gastric cancer. However, recurrent therapeutic resistance presents revolutionary claims. Warburg effect and AKT signaling pathway was involved in the resistance to trastuzumab. Our previous studies have demonstrated that overexpression(More)
To compare the results of repair of knee cartilage defects with tissue-engineered osteochondral composites and tissue-engineered cartilage in pigs. Autologous chondrocytes and osteoblasts were seeded on scaffolds of polylactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA) and tricalcium phosphate (TCP) to generate tissue-engineered cartilage and tissue-engineered bone,(More)
