γ-glutamyl transferase isoenzyme II (GGT-II) is a sensitive biomarker of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, numerous disadvantages of the traditional manual method affected its application. The commercial kit provided a convenient and fast method for the determination of GGT-II levels. The purposes of the present study were to compare the(More)
To investigate the potential role of small glutamine-rich TPR-containing protein A (SGTA) in hepatocarcinogenesis, immunohistochemistry and Western blot were performed to detect the expression of SGTA in clinical Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) samples, adjacent nontumorous liver tissues and HCC cell lines. In addition, expression of SGTA was correlated with(More)
Vacuolar protein sorting 4B (VPS4B), a member of ATPase family proteins, plays a crucial role in lysosome-dependent degradation. Recently, it was found that VPS4B could negatively regulate breast cancer progression through promoting lysosomal-dependent degradation for EGFR. Nevertheless, other studies found that VPS4B was also essential for cell division(More)
NF45 (also known as ILF2), as one subunit of NF-AT (nuclear factor of activated T cells), repairs DNA breaks, inhibits viral replication, and also functions as a negative regulator in the microRNA processing pathway in combination with NF90. Recently, it was found that implicated in the mitotic control of HeLa cells and deletion of endogenous NF45 decreases(More)
SYF2, also known as CCNDBP1-interactor or p29, is reported in pre-mRNA splicing and cell cycle progression. However, the role of SYF2 in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) development remains elusive. In the present study, Western blot and immunohistochemistry assays demonstrated that SYF2 was overexpressed in ESCC tumor tissues and cell lines. In(More)
Golgi protein 73 (GP73) is a resident Golgi type II transmembrane protein that has been reported to markedly increase in chronic liver disease, particularly in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, it remains unclear as to whether serum GP73 represents a reliable serum marker for the diagnosis of HCC. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the(More)
Nek6 is a cell cycle regulatory gene, which can control cell proliferation and survival. Recent studies suggested that desregulation of Nek6 expression plays a key role in oncogenesis. This study was aimed to investigate the potential roles of Nek6 in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) development. Immunohistochemistry and Western blot analysis was performed(More)
ErbB3 binding protein 1 (EBP1) has been recently reported to function as a tumor suppressor in the progression of multiple cancers, including breast cancer, prostate cancer, salivary adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC), and oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). However, the expression and physiological significance of EBP1 in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remain(More)
SYF2, also known as p29/NTC31/CBPIN, encodes a nuclear protein that interacts with Cyclin D-type binding-protein 1. SYF2 has been reported to be involved in pre-mRNA splicing and cell cycle regulation. In the present study, we observed that SYF2 was obviously upregulated in HCC tumor tissues and cell lines, and its level was positively correlated with the(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a major health concern with a high morbidity and mortality rate worldwide. However, the mechanism underlying hepatocarcinogenesis remains unclear. Forkhead box P2 (FOXP2) has been implicated in various human cancer types. However, the role of FOXP2 in HCC remains unknown. Western blot and immunohistochemistry were used to(More)
