Innovative cell-based therapies, including hepatic tissue engineering following hepatocyte transplantation, are considered as theoretical alternatives to liver transplant or for partial replacement of liver function in patients. However, recent progress in hepatic tissue engineering has been hampered by low initial hepatocyte engraftment and insufficient(More)
Many studies have shown that calcium phosphate ceramics can induce bone formation in non-osseous sites without the application of any osteoinductive biomolecules, but the mechanisms of this phenomenon (intrinsic osteoinduction of bioceramics) remain unclear. In this study, we compared the intrinsic osteoinduction of porous hydroxyapatite/beta-tricalcium(More)
An increasing body of evidence indicates that miRNAs have a critical role in carcinogenesis and cancer progression; however, the role of miRNAs in the tumorigenesis of adencarcinoma of gastric esophageal junction (AGEJ) remains largely unclear. The SGC7901 and BGC-823 gastric cancer cell lines were used. The expressions of miR-645 and IFIT2(More)
Histone deacetylase 8 (HDAC8), a unique member of class I HDACs, shows remarkable correlation with advanced disease stage. The depletion of HDAC8 leads to inhibition of proliferation, apoptosis and cell cycle arrest in multiple malignant tumors. However, little is known about the contribution of HDAC8 to the tumorigenesis of gastric cancer (GC). The present(More)
Accumulating evidence indicates that micro (mi)RNAs play a critical role in carcinogenesis and cancer progression; however, their role in the tumorigenesis of gastric adenocarcinoma remains unclear so the present study investigated this in gastric cancer (GC) tissues and cell lines. Human GC specimens (n = 57) and patient-paired non-cancerous specimens were(More)
Recurrence after curative resection for gastric cancer is high, the pattern of recurrence include haematogenous metastasis, peritoneal metastasis, lymph node metastasis, and local recurrence, respectively. Here we report a case with local recurrence at the beginning, and subsequent metastasis to the esophagus three month following gastroscopy. Biopsy of the(More)
Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) play critical and complicated roles in the regulation of various biological processes, including chromatin modification, transcription and post-transcriptional processing. Interestingly, some lncRNAs serve as miRNA “sponges” that inhibit interaction with miRNA targets in post-transcriptional regulation. We constructed a(More)
