Epidemiological studies suggested that ovulation was associated with ovarian carcinogenesis. Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) played an important role in follicular development and was recently found to affect growth of ovarian epithelial cells. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) Thr307Ala and Asn680Ser were two non-synonymous variations in the coding(More)
Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) content in ovarian carcinomas was assessed by quantitative PCR. Results show that mtDNA content in tumour cell was significantly higher than that in normal ovary. Change in mtDNA content was not related with patients' age or tumour stages. However, the average mtDNA copy number in pathological low-grade tumours was over two-fold(More)
Aldehyde dehydrogenase 1 (ALDH1), also known as aldehyde dehydrogenase 1 family, is composed of six enzymes that are expressed at high levels in stem cells and are involved in the regulation of stem cell function. Increased ALDH1 activity has been found in the stem cell populations of leukemia and some solid tumors including breast cancer (BC). However,(More)
