MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been shown to play critical roles in regulating the progress of leukemia. We performed miRNA expression profile in six Chinese patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), and in peripheral B cells from pooled 30 healthy donors, using a platform containing 866 human miRNAs. The most frequent changes in miRNAs in CLL cells(More)
Nuclear hormone receptors are ligand-activated transcription factors that regulate the expression of genes that are essential for development, reproduction and homeostasis. The hormone response is mediated through recruitment of p160 receptor coactivators and the general transcriptional coactivator CBP/p300, which function synergistically to activate(More)
TP53 mutation is an independent marker of poor prognosis in patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) treated with cyclophosphamide, hydroxydaunorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone (CHOP) therapy. However, its prognostic value in the rituximab immunochemotherapy era remains undefined. In the present study of a large cohort of DLBCL patients(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are regulatory RNA molecules that are deregulated in many disease types, including cancer. Recently, miRNAs have shown promise as markers for cancer diagnosis. The aim of this study was to investigate whether serum miRNAs can be used as biomarkers for the detection of diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL). We measured the levels of miRNAs(More)
The recruitment of coactivators by nuclear hormone receptors (NRs) promotes transcription by subverting chromatin-mediated repression. Although the histone methylation enzyme CARM1 and an ATP-remodeling complex have been individually implicated in nuclear receptor-dependent transcription, neither a functional nor mechanistic linkage between these systems(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of low-dose cytarabine and aclarubicin in combination with granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) protocol in elderly patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). A total of 50 elderly patients including 8 aged over 70 years were enrolled. All patients were treated with CAG regimen(More)
Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) shows a remarkable heterogeneity, with some patients having an almost normal lifespan, others surviving only several months after diagnosis despite intensive therapy. The aim of this study was to investigate the serum thymidine kinase 1 (TK1) concentration in Chinese patients with CLL and its correlation with(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of obstructive sleep apnea and continuous positive airway pressure treatment on serum butyrylcholinesterase activity and ischemia-modified albumin levels. METHODS Thirty-two patients with obstructive sleep apnea and 30 age- and sex-matched controls were enrolled and underwent a diagnostic polysomnogram. The serum(More)
B-cell activating factor (BAFF), as a member of the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) ligand family, plays important roles in B-cell homeostasis, tolerance, and malignancy. BAFF binds to three receptors of TNF, TACI, BCMA and BAFF-receptor (BAFF-R). In particular, the BAFF/BAFF-R pathway is crucial to the survival and growth of mature normal and malignant(More)
Chemokines produced in distinct tissue microenvironments sustain migration of mature lymphocytes in lymphoglandula. Chemokine receptors expressed on chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) cells regulate the migration of the leukemia cells within the bone marrow (BM), lymphoid organs in collaboration with chemokines. Chemokines form a pro-survival circuitry by(More)
