MicroRNAs(miRNAs) are emerging as important regulators in tumorigenesis. Increasing evidences have indicated microRNA-7(miR-7) to be a potential tumor suppressor in several human cancers. However, only a limited number of target genes have been identified so far and its biological function in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) remains to be further(More)
Inflammatory responses are complex events occurring when the host immune system fights against invading pathogens, which are double-edged swords requiring appropriate control. MicroRNAs (miRNAs), emerging as a new layer of gene-regulation mechanism, have been reported to have crucial effects on inflammation. In the current study, we identified miR-34a,(More)
Paclitaxel (PTX) is the front-line chemotherapeutic agent against human non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, its therapeutic efficacy is restricted by the increasing frequency of chemotherapeutic resistance in NSCLC. Accumulating evidence has shown the potential role of microRNAs (miRNAs) in the chemotherapeutic sensitivity of cancer cells.(More)
Paclitaxel has become one of the most effective and widely used chemotherapeutic agents over the past decades. Although it has shown promise to selectively deplete regulatory T (Treg) cells in our previous study, the underlying molecular mechanism remains to be further elucidated. The present study focused on the effect of paclitaxel on Treg cells in 3LL(More)
Regulatory T cells (Tregs) are potent immunosuppressive cells and essential for inducing immune tolerance. Recent studies have reported that Tregs and Tregs related cytokines can inhibit the antitumor activity of cytokine-induced killer (CIK) cells, but dendritic cells co-cultured CIK (DC-CIK) cells can be used for induction of a specific immune response by(More)
Trichosanthin (TCS), extracted from the Chinese medicinal herb Trichosanthes kirilowi, has shown promise for the inhibition of tumor growth. However, its immunomodulatory effect on tumor–host interaction remains unknown. In this study, we focused on the effect of TCS on murine anti-tumor immune response in the 3LL Lewis lung carcinoma tumor model and(More)
Cytokine-induced killer (CIK) cells are usually generated from peripheral blood mononuclear cells with the stimulation of IL-2 in vitro. Unlike the conventional IL-2-stimulated CIK cells (IL-2-CIK cells), we investigated the characteristics and potential mechanism of IL-15-stimulated CIK cells (IL-15-CIK cells) in this study. Compared with IL-2-CIK cells,(More)
Recent evidence has demonstrated that regulatory T cells (Treg) were enriched in the tumor sites of patients with B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). However, the causes of enrichment and suppressive mechanisms need to be further elucidated. Here we demonstrated that CD4(+)CD25(+)FoxP3(+)CD127(lo) Treg were markedly increased and their phenotypes were(More)
PURPOSE MicroRNAs (miRNA) are involved in and are controlled by epigenetic regulation, and thereby form a reciprocal regulatory circuit. Using next-generation sequencing (NGS)-based miRNA profiling, this study aimed to discover esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC)-specific miRNAs and miRNA-related epigenetic modulations. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN NGS-based(More)
Glucocorticoids (GCs) are among the most widely used and effective therapies for many chronic inflammatory diseases. Although attempts have been made to identify important protein-coding genes and pathways involved in the anti-inflammatory effect of GCs, knowledge of genomic aberrations associated with noncoding genes, such as micro-RNAs (miRNAs), and their(More)
