Differential expression of microRNAs in plasma of patients with colorectal cancer: a potential marker for colorectal cancer screening
Objective: MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been shown to offer great potential in the diagnosis of cancer. We investigated whether plasma miRNAs could discriminate between patients with and withoutExpand

Circulating microRNAs as Specific Biomarkers for Breast Cancer Detection
Background We previously showed microRNAs (miRNAs) in plasma are potential biomarkers for colorectal cancer detection. Here, we aimed to develop specific blood-based miRNA assay for breast cancerExpand

Warburg effect revisited: an epigenetic link between glycolysis and gastric carcinogenesis
In cancer cells, glucose is often converted into lactic acid, which is known as the ‘Warburg effect’. The reason that cancer cells have a higher rate of aerobic glycolysis, but not oxidativeExpand

Epigenetic silencing of miR-490-3p reactivates the chromatin remodeler SMARCD1 to promote Helicobacter pylori-induced gastric carcinogenesis.
Chromatin remodeling has emerged as a hallmark of gastric cancer, but the regulation of chromatin regulators other than genetic change is unknown. Helicobacter pylori causes epigenetic dysregulationExpand

Effects of adrenaline in human colon adenocarcinoma HT-29 cells.
AIMS Stress has been implicated in the development of cancers. Adrenaline levels are increased in response to stress. The effects of adrenaline on colon cancer are largely unknown. The aims of theExpand

Nicotine promotes gastric tumor growth and neovascularization by activating extracellular signal-regulated kinase and cyclooxygenase-2.
Early studies revealed that cigarette smoke promotes gastric cancer growth through the induction of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2). Nicotine, one of the active ingredients in cigarette smoke, hasExpand

Nicotine Induces Cyclooxygenase-2 and Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Receptor-2 in Association with Tumor-Associated Invasion and Angiogenesis in Gastric Cancer
Blockade of angiogenesis is a promising strategy to suppress tumor growth, invasion, and metastasis. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), which binds to tyrosine kinase receptors [VEGFExpand

MicroRNA-143 is downregulated in breast cancer and regulates DNA methyltransferases 3A in breast cancer cells
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-protein-coding RNAs that regulate expression of a wide variety of genes including those involved in cancer development. Here, we investigate the role of miR-143 inExpand

The Modulating Role of Nuclear Factor-κB in the Action of α7-Nicotinic Acetylcholine Receptor and Cross-Talk between 5-Lipoxygenase and Cyclooxygenase-2 in Colon Cancer Growth Induced by
4-(N-Methyl-N-nitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone (NNK), the tobacco-specific nitrosamine, induces lung cancer in all animal species tested and is thought to contribute significantly to the highExpand

Modulation of heme oxygenase in tissue injury and its implication in protection against gastrointestinal diseases.
Heme oxygenase (HO) is the rate-limiting enzyme in the catabolism of heme, followed by production of biliverdin, free iron and carbon monoxide (CO). There are three isoforms of HO: HO-1 is highlyExpand
