Identification of microRNA‐181 by genome‐wide screening as a critical player in EpCAM–positive hepatic cancer stem cells
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are endogenous small noncoding RNAs that regulate gene expression with functional links to tumorigenesis. Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most common type of liver cancer,Expand

Wnt/beta-catenin signaling contributes to activation of normal and tumorigenic liver progenitor cells.
Adult hepatic progenitor (oval) cells are facultative stem cells in liver, which participate in a range of human liver diseases, including hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, the molecularExpand

Echinococcus shiquicus n. sp., a taeniid cestode from Tibetan fox and plateau pika in China.
The taeniid cestode Echinococcus shiquicus n. sp. was found from the Tibetan fox Vulpes ferrilata and the plateau pika Ochotona curzoniae in the Qinghai-Tibet plateau region of China. In the adultExpand

Profound impact of gut homeostasis on chemically-induced pro-tumorigenic inflammation and hepatocarcinogenesis in rats.
BACKGROUND & AIMS Due to its anatomic connection, the liver is constantly exposed to gut-derived bacterial products or metabolites. Disruption of gut homeostasis is associated with many humanExpand

Crystal structure of long-chain alkane monooxygenase (LadA) in complex with coenzyme FMN: unveiling the long-chain alkane hydroxylase.
LadA, a long-chain alkane monooxygenase, utilizes a terminal oxidation pathway for the conversion of long-chain alkanes (up to at least C(36)) to corresponding primary alcohols in thermophilicExpand

Tumor-derived exosomal miR-1247-3p induces cancer-associated fibroblast activation to foster lung metastasis of liver cancer
The communication between tumor-derived elements and stroma in the metastatic niche has a critical role in facilitating cancer metastasis. Yet, the mechanisms tumor cells use to control metastaticExpand

The role of microRNA expression pattern in human intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma.
BACKGROUND/AIMS MicroRNAs are a small non-coding family of genes involved in the regulation of gene expression in a post-transcriptional manner and contribute to cell proliferation, differentiationExpand

p28GANK overexpression accelerates hepatocellular carcinoma invasiveness and metastasis via phosphoinositol 3‐kinase/AKT/hypoxia‐inducible factor‐1α pathways
The overall survival of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains poor, and the molecular mechanisms underlying HCC progression and aggressiveness are unclear. Here, we report thatExpand

Increased expression of programmed death (PD)‐1 and its ligand PD‐L1 correlates with impaired cell‐mediated immunity in high‐risk human papillomavirus‐related cervical intraepithelial neoplasia
Impaired local cellular immunity contributes to the pathogenesis of persistent high‐risk human papillomavirus (HR‐HPV) infection and related cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN), but theExpand
