Gallbladder cancer is a highly aggressive malignancy with a low 5-year survival rate. Despite advances in the molecular understanding of the initiation and progression in gallbladder cancer, treatment modalities such as surgery, radiotherapy, or chemotherapy in advanced cases did not yield promising outcomes. Therefore, it is of great importance to uncover(More)
The objective of this study was to compare long-term surgical outcomes and complications of laparoscopy-assisted distal gastrectomy (LADG) with open distal gastrectomy (ODG) for the treatment of early gastric cancer (EGC) based on a review of available randomized controlled trials (RCTs) evaluated using the Cochrane methodology.RCTs comparing LADG and ODG(More)
Gallbladder cancer (GBC) is one of the mostly aggressive diseases with poor prognosis due to the lack of severe symptoms. To date, little is known about the potential roles and underlying mechanisms of long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) in GBC initiation and progression. Thus, it provides us with a novel insight into the contribution of lncRNAs to GBC(More)
Human gallbladder cancer is a rare malignancy disease but having poor prognosis over the world. Previous studies have put forward that PTEN is a tumour suppressor in regulating many cellular processes, similar activities have been observed for its mammal homologue TPTE2. In this study, we attempted to unravel the underlying mechanistic basis of the role of(More)
Gastrointestinal stromal tumors originate from interstitial cells of Cajal, the pacemaker cells of the gut. Ca2+ regulates the pacemaker activity of interstitial cells of Cajal. Store-operated Ca2+ entry mediates the majority of Ca2+ entry in most cancer cells and may be a factor in regulating intracellular Ca2+ in interstitial cells of Cajal and(More)
Cap-dependent translation is a potential cancer-related target (oncotarget) due to its critical role in cancer initiation and progression. 4EGI-1, an inhibitor of eIF4E/eIF4G interaction, was discovered by screening chemical libraries of small molecules. 4EGI-1 inhibits cap-dependent translation initiation by impairing the assembly of the eIF4E/eIF4G(More)
Gamma glutamylcyclotransferase (GGCT) has been proved to be involved in various cancers, but the biological function of GGCT in gastric cancer is still largely unknown. The expression level of GGCT was evaluated by informatics analyses based on the Oncomine database. GGCT gene was then effectively knocked down via lentivirus mediated short hairpin RNA(More)
Bromodomain containing protein 4 (BRD4) has been demonstrated to play a critical role in tumor progression. However, the expression and function of BRD4 in gallbladder cancer (GBC) are still unknown. In this study, we report that BRD4 expression level was significantly upregulated in GBC tissues and GBC cell lines. We explored the correlation between BRD4(More)
