SERPINB1 (serine protease inhibitor, clade B, member1) is a member of the SERPINB family. Recent studies suggested that SERPINB1 may suppress the migration and invasion of lung and breast cancers. In this study, we investigated a possible involvement of SERPINB1 in the regulation of hepatocellular carcinoma metastasis (HCC). The expression of SERPINB1 was(More)
ILF2 (NF45) is a sequence-specific DNA binding protein that is involved in mitosis control, transcriptional regulation, DNA breaks repair, microRNA processing and viral replication. In the present study, we aim to investigate the potential role of ILF2 in the progression of non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Western blot analysis indicated that ILF2 was(More)
Vacuolar protein sorting 4B (VPS4B) is a member of ATPase family proteins that have been shown to play important roles in the formation of MVBs, virus budding and abscission of cytokinesis. In this study, we investigated the prognostic role of VPS4B in human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and its effect on the growth of HCC cells. Western blot and(More)
Vacuolar protein sorting 4B (VPS4B), a member of ATPase family proteins, plays a crucial role in lysosome-dependent degradation. Recently, it was found that VPS4B could negatively regulate breast cancer progression through promoting lysosomal-dependent degradation for EGFR. Nevertheless, other studies found that VPS4B was also essential for cell division(More)
p29, also known as SYF2/fSAP29/NTC31, is a protein associated with chromatin and involved in DNA damage response, cell cycle arrest and pre-mRNA splicing. In p29-depleted cells, DNA replication was reduced and cell population in G1 phase increased. In this study, we investigated the potential role of p29 in the regulation of non-small cell lung cancer(More)
Growth arrest-specific transcript 5 (GAS5) has been demonstrated to correlate with clinicopathological characteristics and serve as a tumor suppressor in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, the underlying mechanism of the competing endogenous RNA (ceRNA) regulatory network involving GAS5 in NSCLC remains to be elucidated. In this study, qRT-PCR(More)
Nemo-like kinase (NLK), an evolutionarily conserved serine/threonine kinase, is a critical regulator of various cancers. NLK expression was evaluated by Western blot in 8 paired fresh non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) tissues and immunohistochemistry (IHC) on 83 paraffin-embedded slices. NLK was lowly expressed in NSCLC and significantly associated with(More)
A small glutamine-rich tetratricopeptide repeat-containing protein alpha (SGTA) is a 35 kDa protein involved in a number of biological processes. However, the role of SGTA in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) tumorigenesis has never been elucidated. The purpose of this study was to determine whether SGTA could serve as a biomarker for stratification and(More)
Transforming growth factor-activated kinase 1 (TAK1)-binding protein 3 (TAB3) is essential for the activation of the nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB) pathway and has important roles in cell survival. However, the contribution of TAB3 to non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) remains elusive. In the present study, Western blotting and immunohistochemistry assays(More)
High temperature required A2 (HtrA2) is a serine kinase that is released from mitochondria into the cytosol upon apoptotic stimuli, inducing apoptosis in various cancers. Thus, analysis of the expression of HtrA2 in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) tissues is needed for the understanding of this malignancy. In this study we firstly analyzed the apoptosis(More)
