BACKGROUND Prognosis of small (≤2 cm) invasive lung adenocarcinoma remains poor, and identification of high-risk individuals from the patients after complete surgical resection of lung adenocarcinoma has become an urgent problem. YBX1 has been reported to be able to predict prognosis in many cancers (except lung adenocarcinoma) that are independent of TNM(More)
Aberrant overexpression of the transcription/translation factor Y-box-binding protein-1 (YBX1) is associated with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) aggressiveness. Cancer stem cells (CSCs) contribute to the tumorigenesis and metastasis of NSCLC. Hitherto, the mechanism by which YBX1 regulates CSCs and metastasis in NSCLC remains unclear. Here, we(More)
Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) plays an important role in lung cancer development and progression. Using streptavidin-agarose pulldown and proteomics assay, we identified and validated Ku80, a dimer of Ku participating in the repair of broken DNA double strands, as a new binding protein of the COX-2 gene promoter. Overexpression of Ku80 up-regulated COX-2(More)
The inhibitors of BRAF and MEK targeting MAPK signaling pathway provide a comparatively effective therapeutic strategy for melanoma caused by BRAF mutation. However, melanoma, especially metastatic melanoma, has become one of the most threatening malignancies. Thus, the identification of exact molecular mechanisms and the key components involved in such(More)
BACKGROUND GalNAc-T3 catalyzes initial glycosylation of mucin-type O-linked protein involved in proliferation, adhesion, and migration of tumor cells. This study was performed to explore the relationships of the expression of GalNAc-T3 in small peripheral lung adenocarcinoma, especially as an indicator of prognosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective(More)
Y-box binding protein 1 (YBX1) is involved in the multi-tumor occurrence and development. However, the regulation of YBX1 in lung tumorigenesis and the underlying mechanisms, especially its relationship with CDC25a, was remains unclear. In this study, we analyzed the expression and clinical significance of YBX1 and CDC25a in lung adenocarcinoma and(More)
Overexpression of cyclooxygenase 2 (COX-2) is frequently found in early and advanced lung cancers. However, the precise regulatory mechanism of COX-2 in lung cancers remains unclear. Here we identified cleavage and polyadenylation specific factor 4 (CPSF4) as a new regulatory factor for COX-2 and demonstrated the role of the CPSF4/COX-2 signaling pathway in(More)
Ti-47 at.%Ni alloy films were prepared by magnetron sputtering followed by 460°C for 40 minutes heat-treatment. The strain fields between B2 phase matrix and G.P. zone were mapped by a combination of high-resolution transmission electron microscopy and geometric phase analysis method. It was found that there is a compressive strain region parallel to the(More)
Aberrant overexpression of the transcription/translation factor Y-box-binding protein (YB-1) is associated with poor prognosis of lung adenocarcinoma, however the underlying mechanism by which YB-1 acts has not been fully elucidated. Here, we reported that inhibition of YB-1 diminished proliferation, migration and invasion of lung adenocarcinoma cells.(More)
—Matching pursuit algorithms learn a function that is weighted sum of basis functions, by sequentially appending functions to an initially empty basis, to approximate a target function in the least-squares sense. Experimental result shows that it is an effective method, but the drawbacks are that this algorithm is not appropriate to online learning or(More)
