BACKGROUND & AIMS Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most common malignancies worldwide. However, the detailed molecular mechanisms underlying HCC progression are still not completely clear. Given the crucial role of microRNAs (miRNAs) in cancer metastasis, we aimed to analyze the expression and function of a metastasis-associated miRNA named(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most deadly human cancers because of its high incidence of metastasis. Despite extensive efforts, therapies against metastasis of HCC remain underdeveloped. Vacuole membrane protein 1 (Vmp1) was recently identified to be involved in cancer-relevant processes; however, its expression, clinical significance and(More)
UNLABELLED Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most lethal cancers worldwide because of metastasis. Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) is widely considered to be crucial to the invasion-metastasis cascade during cancer progression. Actin-like 6A (ACTL6A) is initially verified important for cell proliferation, differentiation, and migration. In(More)
Purpose: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) harbors highly metastatic properties, accounting for postoperative recurrence and metastasis. However, the mechanisms for metastasis and recurrence remain incompletely clear. This study aimed to investigate the role of hsa-miR-487a (miR-487a) in promoting the proliferation and metastasis of HCC and to elucidate the(More)
H2.0-like homeobox 1 (HLX1) is a homeobox transcription factor gene expressed primarily in cytotrophoblast cell types in the early pregnancy human placenta and involved in the development of enteric nervous system. However, the biological function of HLX1 in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains unclear. In the present study, semiquantitative reverse(More)
