To identify new genetic risk factors for cervical cancer, we conducted a genome-wide association study in the Han Chinese population. The initial discovery set included 1,364 individuals with cervical cancer (cases) and 3,028 female controls, and we selected a 'stringently matched samples' subset (829 cases and 990 controls) from the discovery set on the(More)
OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to analyze the relationship among the protein levels of MCM7, p63, and human papillomavirus (HPV) in different cervical lesion tissues and appraise their predictive value in evaluating severity of cervical disease. METHODS Twelve normal cervix or chronic cervicitis, 42 squamous intraepithelial lesions, and 53(More)
Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is the most important risk factor for the development of cervical cancer. The oncogene E7 from high-risk HPV strains has the ability to immortalize epithelial cells and increase cellular transformation in culture. In this study, we explored the possibility of preventing cervical cancer growth by inhibiting HPV16 E7(More)
Gankyrin has been implicated in the formation of multiple cancer types, although its roles in estrogen-driven endometrial carcinoma remain unclarified. We evaluated the expression of Gankyrin in endometrial tissues and further explored its roles in estrogen-driven and GPR30-mediated endometrial cancer cell proliferation. Gankyrin was overexpressed in(More)
Our previous studies have showed that Gankyrin expression is correlated with a malignant phenotype in endometrial carcinoma. Here, we investigated the possible role of Gankyrin in cervical disease. The increasing protein level of Gankyrin was observed in high-grade cervical intraepithelial neoplasia and carcinoma compared with benign cervical tissues and(More)
High-risk human papillomavirus (HR-HPV) infections are among the most important factors for cervical carcinogenesis. However, whether patients infected with HR-HPV eventually develop a malignant tumor, largely depends on epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT), which plays an extraordinary role in the process of carcinogenesis and metastasis. Therefore, we(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of the FHIT gene on tumorigenesis of cervical cancer. RT-PCR and MTT were used to detect the expression of FHIT and cell proliferation respectively. Flow cytometry was used to test cell cycle and cell apoptosis. The expression of FHIT was not induced at all four cervical cancer cells treated with(More)
Genetic heterogeneity of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) within a patient has caused great concern as it might complicate antibiotic treatment and cause treatment failure. But the extent of genetic heterogeneity has not been described in detail nor has its association with heterogeneous treatment response. During treatment of a subject with MDR-TB, serial(More)
The mechanisms of drug-resistance in human ovarian cancer cells have not been entirely clarified. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether LRP is involved in the resistance of ovarian cancer cell lines to cisplatin and its molecular mechanism. Human ovarian cisplatin-resistant cancer cell lines (A2780/DDP and COC1/DDP) and their parental(More)
OBJECTIVE E7 is regarded as one of the main oncoproteins of high-risk human papillomaviruses (HPVs). It may affect the transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGF-beta1) signaling pathway. In this study, the relationship between HPV-16 infection and the functions of three critical factors of the TGF-beta1/Smads pathway was explored to assess the possible role of(More)
