Xenopus laevis has recently been determined as a novel study platform of gene function. In this study, we cloned Xenopus DRR1 (xDRR1), which is homologous to human down-regulated in renal carcinoma (DRR1) gene. Bioinformatics analysis for DRR1 indicated that xDRR1 shared 74% identity with human DRR1 and 66% with mouse DRR1, and the phlogenetic tree of DRR1(More)
In temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE), the seizure origin typically involves the hippocampal formation. The pilocarpine-induced TLE provides a model to investigate the molecular and functional characterization of epileptogenesis by mimicking the human epileptic condition. Here, we employed a 2-D gel-based proteomic technique to profile proteome changes in the rat(More)
This work was initiated with the purpose of purifying and identifying differentially expressed plasma membrane-associated proteins between human liver cancer cell line HepG2 and normal liver cell line L02. The combined strategy of sucrose density gradient centrifugation and subsequent phase partition was applied to obtain high-purity proteins of plasma(More)
Down-regulated in renal cell carcinoma gene (DRR1) is one of the candidate tumor suppressor genes (TSGs) on human 3p21.1. This study was performed to validate the expression status of DRR1 gene in cancer cells and the expression pattern of the protein in clinical specimens of human lung cancer and to examine its potential as a molecular target for treatment(More)
Specific PLK1 silencing may be an effective gene therapy modality of treating PLK1-overexpressed cancers. In this study, we first explored the anticancer efficacy of three different short hairpin-expressing plasmids targeting PLK1 in animal model, and then determined the combination therapy effect of gemcitabine with PLK1-shRNA as an adjuvant. Transfection(More)
Human DRR1 (down-regulated in renal cell carcinoma 1) is widely expressed in normal tissues but dramatically reduced or even undetectable in a number of different cancer cell lines and primary tumour types. DRR1 from Homo sapiens was cloned into the pQE30 vector for fusion-protein expression with six histidine residues in Escherichia coli BL21(DE3). A(More)
OBJECTIVE To amplify the nucleotide sequence of CG-like receptor from X anthomonas maltophilia(X maltophilia). METHODS Using the specific primer P1 designed by Grover's reported 342 bp partial nucleotide sequence of X maltophilia CG-like receptor and random primer to PCR amplify, PCR product was cloned in the pUCm-T vector. After the recombinant plasmid(More)
