Precise roles of beta-catenin/TCF pathway involved in esophageal tumorigenesis remain elusive. Here we found STAT3 overexpression in esophageal cancer cells and tissues, and its overexpression in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) tissues correlated with beta-catenin cytoplasmic/nuclear accumulation. A functional TCF binding element was detected in(More)
PURPOSE Activation of Akt is a marker of decreased event-free or overall survival in neuroblastoma patients. MK-2206, a novel allosteric Akt inhibitor, is now tested in clinical trials in adult cancers. In this study, effect of MK-2206 on tumor growth and murine survival, alone or in combination, with etoposide or rapamycin was evaluated. EXPERIMENTAL(More)
The IL-6/JAK/STAT pathway is a key signal transduction pathway implicated in the pathogenesis of many human cancers, suggesting that kinase inhibitors targeting JAK/STAT3 may have a broad spectrum of antitumor activity. AZD1480, a pharmacological JAK1/2 inhibitor, exhibits anti-tumor potency in multiple adult malignancies. To evaluate the efficacy of(More)
The Arabidopsis SUPERMAN (SUP) gene encodes a C2H2 type zinc finger protein that is required for maintaining the boundaries between stamens and carpels, and for regulating development of ovule outer integument. Orthologs of SUP have been characterized in bisexual flowers as well as dioecious species, but it remains elusive in monoecious plants with(More)
A new digital image watermarking algorithm based on texture block and edge detection in the discrete wavelet domain is proposed in order to balance between the invisibility and robustness and improve the ability of resisting to geometric attacks of the digital image watermark. In the algorithm, the texture blocks are extracted after the edge detection for(More)
In the network security, the identity authentication technology holds the extremely important status, is the information security system first checkpoint. From this the identity authentication is the most basic safe service, other securities serve all must rely on it. This article will describe identity authentication base on speech feature which is a very(More)
The abnormality of serine/threonine kinase Aurora-A is seen in many types of cancers. Although in physiological context it has been shown to play a vital role in cellular mitosis, how this oncogene contributes to tumorigenesis remains unclear. Here we demonstrate that Aurora-A overexpression enhances both the expression level and transcriptional activity of(More)
Human pituitary tumor transforming gene (PTTG) overexpression correlates with metastasis in multiple tumors, and yet its molecular mechanisms of action remain elusive. We detected PTTG overexpression in 66% (111 of 169) of primary esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) tumor tissues by in situ hybridization. PTTG overexpression correlated with lymph node(More)
Previously we showed that end-binding protein 1 (EB1) may promote cellular growth by activating beta-catenin/T-cell factor (TCF) pathway. To further investigate the role of EB1 in regulating cellular growth, we established an EB1-inducible expression system in which the protein level of EB1 was significantly upregulated upon doxycycline induction. We found(More)
Epidemiological and experimental studies have indicated selenium could reduce the risk of some cancers. In our present study, growth inhibition and apoptosis were detected upon methylseleninic acid (MSA) treatment in human esophageal squamous cell carcinoma cell lines EC9706 and KYSE150. MSA reduced beta-catenin protein levels, while there was no(More)
