Minority Uigur women residing in Xinjiang, in the northwest of China, have a high incidence of cervical carcinoma (CC; 527/100 000) and are often diagnosed young. We favor the hypothesis that Uigur women may carry different genetic factor(s) making them more susceptible to CC than majority Han (Chinese) women living in the same region.

Sestrin 2 is a conserved antioxidant protein that is involved in p53‑dependent antioxidant defenses and protects cells against oxidative stresses. The present study was conducted to examine the expression of sestrin 2 in colorectal cancer (CRC) and investigate a possible relationship between sestrin 2 expression and prognosis in CRC. The expression of(More)
Calcium/calmodulin-dependent serine protein kinase (CASK), which localizes at cell–cell adhesion sites and binds to the heparan sulfate proteoglycan syndecan-2, is involved in cell proliferation, cytoskeletal remodeling, and cell migration. To demonstrate the role of CASK in colorectal cancer (CRC) carcinogenesis, we examined the expression of CASK and its(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the association between p53 Arg72Pro polymorphism and cervical carcinomas HPV-associated cervical carcinoma in Uigur and Han women. METHODS The distribution and frequencies of p53 Arg72Pro genotypes were determined by PCR-RFLP in 152 cases of cervical carcinoma in ethnic Uigur women with 110 cases of normal control and 120 cases(More)
