The PTEN (phosphatase and tensin homolog deleted on chromosome 10) tumour suppressor is mutated in 40-50% of human endometrial cancers. PTEN exerts its effects in part via inhibition of the antiapoptotic protein AKT. We demonstrate that two endometrial cancer cell lines that harbour PTEN mutations, Ishikawa and RL95-2, have high levels of phosphorylated AKT(More)
BACKGROUND It has been reported that some single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of the angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) gene and the endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) gene are associated with the development of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and the progression of nephropathy. The aim of this study was to evaluate the possible association(More)
BACKGROUND Brain acid soluble protein 1 (BASP1) is identified as a novel potential tumor suppressor in several cancers. However, its role in thyroid cancer has not been investigated yet. In the present study, the antitumor activities of BASP1 against the growth and migration of thyroid cancer cells were evaluated. METHODS BASP1 expression in thyroid(More)
Celastrol is an active compound extracted from the root bark of Triptergium wilfordii Hook F., also known as ̔Thunder of God Vine̓. It is a well-known Chinese medicinal herb that was found to inhibit tumor cell growth and promote apoptosis in several tumor cell lines. However, research into its effects on osteosarcoma cell apoptosis is still extremely(More)
