Forkhead box D3 (FOXD3), as a transcriptional repressor, is well known to be involved in the regulation of development. Although FoxD3 is associated with several cancers, its role in colon cancer and the underlying mechanism are still unclear. Here, we first showed that FOXD3 knockdown dramatically increased the proliferation of human colon cancer cells,(More)
TRIM28 regulates its target genes at both transcriptional and posttranscriptional levels. Here we report that a TRIM28-TWIST1-EMT axis exists in breast cancer cells and TRIM28 promotes breast cancer metastasis by stabilizing TWIST1 and subsequently enhancing EMT. We find that TRIM28 is highly expressed in both cancer cell lines and advanced breast cancer(More)
Immunotherapy is one of the most promising new therapies for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in recent years. In this study, folate-conjugated chitosan nanoparticles (FA-CS-NPs) were loaded with mouse interferon-γ-inducible protein-10 (IP-10) plasmid, which were used for immunotherapy in HCC. H22 tumor-bearing mice were treated with FA-CS-NPs entrapped IP-10(More)
BACKGROUND Adoptive immunotherapy with cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) has great potential for the treatment of some malignant cancers. Therefore, augmenting the responses of tumor-specific CTLs is significant for the adoptive immunotherapy of melanoma. This study aimed to investigate the anti-tumor response of a combination therapy employing folate-modified(More)
In lung cancer, antiangiogenic treatment targeting tumor endothelial cells (ECs) provides a survival advantage. To fully elucidate the behavior of ECs in a tumor microenvironment, high-purity (>98%) normal, paratumor-, and tumor-derived CD105(+) ECs were purified from lung squamous cell carcinoma by incubating cells with anti-CD105 antibody-coated magnetic(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS In this study, we investigated the role of salt-inducible kinase 1 (SIK1) and its possible mechanisms in human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). METHODS Immunoprecipitation, immunohistochemistry, luciferase reporter, Chromatin immunoprecipitation, in vitro kinase assays and a mouse model were used to examine the role of SIK1 on the(More)
PURPOSE We have developed a PEGylated transferrin-conjugated liposomes (PTf-Ls) system for the combined tumor imaging and targeted delivery of the IFN-γ-inducible protein-10 (IP-10) gene in a single macromolecular construct. Here, we characterize and analyze the use of this system in a mouse model of breast cancer. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN The biophysical and(More)
To explore dendritic cells/tumor-derived endothelial cells (DC/EC) fusion cells are potent stimulators of T cells to impact tumor progression. ECs were isolated from mice hepatoma cell line (H22) Xenograft, and dendritic cells were isolated from bone marrow of BALB/c mice, then the isolated ECs were cultured and detected the endothelial surface expression(More)
Highly migratory tuna is one of economically important harvesting objects of the world. It is practically significant to forecast the probable fishing grounds. Based on satellite data of SST supplied by NASA and historical tuna catch data provided by SPC, relationship between catchbility and SST was studied. And then using the Bayesian theorem, a tuna(More)
Based on the recent 50 years two-boats trawl fishing data of some state-owned fisheries companies and recent 7 years single-boat fishing data of some areas in East China Sea, the trophic index(TI) and composition indexs of fishes of two-boats trawl and single-boat trawl were calculated and analyzed, which indicated that TI increased before 1974 and(More)
