Under hypoxia, tumor cells produce a secretion that modulates their microenvironment to facilitate tumor angiogenesis and metastasis. Here, we observed that hypoxic or reoxygenated A431 carcinoma cells exhibited enhanced angiogenic and metastatic potential such as reduced cell-cell and cell-extracellular matrix adhesion, increased invasiveness, and(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the appearance of breast lesions using acoustic radiation force impulse imaging (ARFI) and to correlate the ARFI values with the pathologic results. The area ratio (AR) and virtual touch tissue quantification (VTQ) values were analyzed in 86 patients (mean age 45.6 years, range 17-78 years) with 92 breast lesions (65(More)
Survivin, one of the strongest apoptosis inhibitors, plays a critical role in the development and progression of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). By comparison, relatively little is known about the effect of survivin gene polymorphisms on HCC susceptibility. Our study aimed to investigate the association of survivin gene polymorphisms with the risk of HCC in(More)
• Acyl-CoA-binding proteins (ACBPs) show conservation in an acyl-CoA-binding domain (ACB domain) which binds acyl-CoA esters. Previous studies on plant ACBPs focused on eudicots, Arabidopsis and Brassica. Here, we report on the phylogeny and characterization of the ACBP family from the monocot Oryza sativa (rice). • Phylogenetic analyses were conducted(More)
AIM To explore the mode of inheritance of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in a moderately high-incidence area of East China. METHODS A pedigree survey was conducted in 210 families (3315 individuals) ascertained through 210 HCC probands in Haimen, Jiangsu Province. Simple segregation analysis was conducted using SEGRANB software. The probability of(More)
BACKGROUND Rapid economic growth in China in the past decades has been accompanied by dramatic changes in lifestyle and environmental exposures. The burdens of non-communicable diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and cancer, have also increased substantially. METHODS/DESIGN We initiated a large prospective cohort-the Taizhou Longitudinal(More)
Acyl-CoA-binding proteins (ACBPs) show conservation at the acyl-CoA-binding (ACB) domain which facilitates binding to acyl-CoA esters. In Arabidopsis thaliana, six ACBPs participate in development and stress responses. Rice (Oryza sativa) also contains six genes encoding ACBPs. We investigated differences in subcellular localization between monocot rice and(More)
AIM To study the effect of IGF-1/IGF-1R and gastrin/CCK-BR on carcinogenesis and development of human gastric carcinoma and to explore its mechanism and provide a credible theoretical foundation for early diagnosis and molecular therapy of gastric carcinoma. METHODS mRNA expression levels of IGF-1/IGF-1R and gastrin/CCK-BR were assessed by RT-PCR method(More)
BACKGROUND The fine balance of Th17/Treg is crucial for maintenance of immune homeostasis. The objective of this study was to investigate the balance of Th17/Treg and the expression of related cytokines in Uighur cervical cancer patients. METHODS Peripheral blood was collected from 65 cases of cervical cancer patients, 42 cases of cervical CIN patients(More)
OBJECTIVE To shed light on the relationship between FcgammaR II a-131 and systemic lupus erythematosus(SLE) in southern Chinese Han population. METHODS A population-based and family-based study was carried out. FcgammaR II a-131 of each subject was measured by using PCR-allele specific oligonucleotide hybridization(ASO) method. RESULTS (1) The(More)
