Tumor cells display a different profile of gene expression than their normal counterparts. Perturbations in the levels of cellular splicing factors can alter gene expression, potentially leading to tumorigenesis. We found that splicing factor SRp20 (SFRS3) is highly expressed in cancers. SRp20 regulated the expression of Forkhead box transcription factor M1(More)
HPV16 E6 and E7, two viral oncogenes, are expressed from a single bicistronic pre-mRNA. In this report, we provide the evidence that the bicistronic pre-mRNA intron 1 contains three 5' splice sites (5' ss) and three 3' splice sites (3' ss) normally used in HPV16(+) cervical cancer and its derived cell lines. The choice of two novel alternative 5' ss (nt 221(More)
Preventive anti-HPV vaccines are effective against HPV infection but not against existing HPV-associated diseases, including cervical cancer and other malignant diseases. Therefore, the development of therapeutic vaccines is urgently needed. To improve anti-tumor effects of therapeutic vaccine, we fused cytotoxic T-lymphocyte antigen 4 (CTLA-4) with HPV16(More)
Alternative RNA splicing is an essential process to yield proteomic diversity in eukaryotic cells, and aberrant splicing is often associated with numerous human diseases and cancers. We recently described serine/arginine-rich splicing factor 3 (SRSF3 or SRp20) being a proto-oncogene. However, the SRSF3-regulated splicing events responsible for its oncogenic(More)
Gene silencing techniques are widely used to control gene expression and have potential for RNAi-based therapeutics. In this report, transgenic mouse lines were created for conditional knockdown of Srsf3 (SRp20) expression in liver and mammary gland tissues by expressing Srsf3-specific shRNAs driven by a U6 promoter. Although a small portion of the(More)
Splicing factors are key players in the regulation of alternative splicing of pre-mRNAs. Overexpression of splicing factors, including SRSF3, has been strongly linked with oncogenesis. However, the mechanisms behind their overexpression remain largely unclear. Autoregulation is a common mechanism to maintain relative stable expression levels of splicing(More)
The effects of increasing lead concentration on the activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD), peroxides (POD) and catalase (CAT), levels of ascorbate (AsA), reduced glutathione (GSH), Pb accumulation and its influence on nutrient elements, polyamines (PAs) content, as well as activities of polyamine oxidase (PAO) and ornithine decarboxylase (ODC), were(More)
