Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is one of the most common malignancies of the head and neck. It arises from the nasopharynx epithelium and is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) have been reported to regulate gene interaction and play critical roles in carcinogenesis and progression. LncRNA-ROR, a recently identified(More)
Stathmin 1 (STMN1) is an important molecule in regulating cellular microtubule dynamics and promoting microtubule depolymerization in interphase and late mitosis. Evidences showed that STMN1 was up-regulated in many cancers, but there was no report about the roles of STMN1 in human cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC). Here, we confirmed significant(More)
OBJECTIVE HS1-associated protein X-1 (HAX-1) is a multifunctional protein that has been highlighted as an important marker in many types of cancers. However, little is known about the role of HAX-1 in laryngeal carcinoma. The purpose of the present study is to explore HAX-1 expression status and its associations with clinicopathologic features and survival(More)
A disintegrin and metalloprotease 10 (ADAM10) is a typical member of the ADAMs family, which has been reported to be upregulated in various types of cancers and contribute to cancer progression and metastasis. However, little is known about the role of ADAM10 in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). The purpose of this study is to explore ADAM10 expression status(More)
Nasopharyngeal cancer (NPC) is an endemic type of head and neck cancer with a high rate of cervical lymph node metastasis. Metastasis is the major cause of death in NPC patients. Increasing evidence indicates that exosomes play a pivotal role in promoting cancer metastasis by enhancing angiogenesis and ECM degradation. Matrix metalloproteinase 13 is an(More)
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), which are capable of differentiating into multiple cell types, are reported to exert multiple effects on tumor development. However, the relationship between MSCs and nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) cells remains unclear. Exosomes are small membrane vesicles that can be released by several cell types, including MSCs. Exosomes,(More)
BACKGROUND FGF receptor (FGFR) family can be activated by FGFs and play important roles in regulating cell growth, differentiation, migration and angiogenesis. Recent studies suggested that FGFR4 could regulate several processes including tumor progression. Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is a malignancy with a high occurrence in Southeast Asia and Southern(More)
HS1-associated protein X-1 (HAX-1) is an important marker in many types of cancers and contributes to cancer progression and metastasis. We examined the expression of HAX-1 in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) and experimentally manipulated its expression. We observed that HAX-1 expression is elevated in NPC and is correlated with lymph node metastasis, M(More)
Nasopharyngeal cancer (NPC) is an endemic type of head and neck cancer with a high rate of cervical lymph node metastasis. An increasing number of studies have shown that microRNAs (miRNAs) play a key role in the development and progression of NPC. miR-338-3p has been demonstrated as an anti-oncogene in different solid tumors. The aim of the present study(More)
