A variety of human cancer cells are resistant to Fas ligand and anti-Fas antibody induced apoptosis. Previously, we reported that human gastric carcinoma cell lines were resistant to the anti-Fas antibody, CH-11, without interferon-gamma pretreatment in vitro. Cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 is known to be expressed in many human malignancies, and is correlated with(More)
Cyclooxygenase (Cox)-2 plays an important role in cell proliferation, carcinogenesis and tumor growth, in part through the synthesis of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) as well as through other yet unknown routes. Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) signaling regulates Cox-2 expression, which has not been thoroughly examined in bronchial carcinomas. The current(More)
Previously we reported that the hypoxia-inducible factor-1alpha (HIF-1alpha) expression correlated with cell proliferation and apoptosis under 500 mM of CoCl2 treatment in a human gastric carcinoma cell line, MKN-1. Herein we report a similar correlation in other cell lines, MKN-45 and TMK-1. The dual-phase expression of HIF-1alpha was highest at 6 and 8 h(More)
The exact mechanism behind the effect of hypoxia-inducible factor-1alpha (HIF-1alpha) on the proliferation and/or apoptosis of carcinoma cells is still a matter of debate. We treated a human gastric carcinoma cell line, MKN-1 (mutant P53), with 500 microM CoCl(2). A dual-phase pattern of HIF-1alpha expression with an increase until 4 h followed by a(More)
Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) has been found to be up-regulated in several types of human malignant tumors and proposed to have a role in the angiogenic process. This study examined the expression of COX-2 in two human malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) cell lines by Western blotting, which showed a specific single band at 72 kDa. Immunohistochemistry was(More)
The expression of cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 is induced by growth factors, tumor promoters and cytokines, and is correlated with carcinogenesis, tumor progression and inhibition of apoptosis. To clarify the pathological significance of COX-2, we examined the effect of a selective COX-2 inhibitor, NS398, on two human gastric carcinoma cell lines, MKN-45 and(More)
BACKGROUND Cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 plays an important role in carcinogenesis in various human malignancies. This study examined the relationship among COX-2 expression, angiogenesis and apoptosis in human gastric adenoma and carcinoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS We examined the expression of COX-2 in 30 tubular adenomas and 11 carcinomas, comparing it with(More)
