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)
Epithelial membrane protein 3 (EMP3) is a typical member of the epithelial membrane protein (EMP) family which has been reported to be a tumor suppressor gene in neuroblastomas and gliomas and recently reported to be commonly repressed in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) cell lines. However, the expression and clinical significance of EMP3 protein(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the expression of Igγ-1 chain C region (IGHG1) in human pancreatic carcinomas and determine the biological function of IGHG1 expression in immune evasion mechanisms. METHODS Comparative proteomic analysis was used to detect the differential expression of IGHG1 in human pancreatic cancer tissues versus adjacent noncancerous(More)
Cell division cycle 5-like (Cdc5L), as a pre-mRNA splicing factor, is a regulator of mitotic progression. Previous study found that deletion of endogenous Cdc5L decreases the cell viability via dramatic mitotic arrest, while the role of Cdc5L in cancer biology remains under debate. To investigate the involvement of Cdc5L in the progression of hepatocellular(More)
Vacuolar protein sorting 4B (VPS4B) is a member of ATPase family proteins that have been shown to play important roles in the formation of MVBs, virus budding and abscission of cytokinesis. In this study, we investigated the prognostic role of VPS4B in human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and its effect on the growth of HCC cells. Western blot and(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)
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 type of primary liver cancer and the sixth most prevalent human malignancies worldwide. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying hepatocarcinogenesis remain unclear. For HCC patients, there is not only a lack of effective therapeutic targets but also a lack of predictive or prognostic biomarkers. In this(More)
Bcl-2-associated athanogene-1 (BAG-1) is a multifunctional anti-apoptotic protein which regulates an array of cellular processes, including apoptosis, signaling, proliferation, transcription, and cell motility and has been reported to be over-expressed in a number of human malignancies. To investigate the possible involvement of BAG-1 in tumorigenesis of(More)
