The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of silencing hexokinase II (HK II) gene with RNA interference (RNAi) technique on colon cancer LoVo cell proliferation in vitro and in vivo. A short hairpin RNA (shRNA) eukaryotic expression vector against HK II gene was constructed, named as plasmid pGenesil-1-HK II, and transfected into LoVo cells.(More)
The ability of certain cancer cells to maintain signaling via the phosphoinositide-3-kinase/Akt and/or Ras/mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathways has been repeatedly involved in resistance to epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibition. We investigated the potential mechanisms of the uncoupling of EGFR from its downstream signals in(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Extensive trials have indicated that cancer cells with high glycolytic activity exhibit decreased sensitivity to anticancer agents. Moreover, recent research has proved that a specific inhibitor of hexokinase II, which is a key glycolytic enzyme, may enhance the activity of anticancer drugs. The purpose of this study is to further(More)
BACKGROUND Multicellular resistance (MCR), i.e. decreased sensitivity to anticancer drugs compared with common monolayer cell (MC) cultures, depends partly on tumor cell-cell adhesion. Previous studies have shown that anti-adhesive therapies, including integrin alpha(v), beta(1) and alpha(v)beta(3) targeting, induced apoptosis and reversed the sensitivity(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the relationship between Tiam1 and lymphangiogenesis in human colorectal carcinoma (CRC) tissues, as well as the expression of VEGF-C in a CRC cell line (HCT116) after knockdown of the Tiam1 gene with RNA interference (RNAi). RESULTS In the specimens of CRC tissue, the positivity rate of Tiam1 and VEGF-C was 84% and 58%,(More)
Mammalian oocytes undergo a cortical reaction after fertilization, releasing cortical granules and other proteins into the perivitelline space and inhibiting polyspermy. Few studies have evaluated the biological functions and properties of these proteins. We investigated mouse oocytes in which the zona pellucida (ZP) was present (ZP-intact group) or absent(More)
