Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are emerging as key molecules in human cancer. Homeobox (HOX) transcript antisense intergenic RNA (HOTAIR), a long non-coding RNA (lncRNA), is associated with a variety… Expand
Overexpression of long non-coding RNA HOTAIR leads to chemoresistance by activating the Wnt/β-catenin pathway in human ovarian cancer
Overexpression of HOTAIR (HOX antisense intergenic RNA) is significantly correlated with tumor progression and poor prognosis in human ovarian cancer. However, the underlying mechanisms are largely… Expand
Mutant p53 (p53-R248Q) functions as an oncogene in promoting endometrial cancer by up-regulating REGγ.
P53 mutation plays a pivotal role in tumorigenesis of endometrial cancer (EC), here we report that the gain-of-function mutant p53-R248Q targets the proteasome activator REGγ to promote EC… Expand
Elevated STMN1 promotes tumor growth and invasion in endometrial carcinoma
Overexpression of stathmin (STMN1) is closely linked to tumor metastases and poor prognosis in endometrial carcinoma (EC). However, the underlying mechanism is little known. In the present study, we… Expand
China’s South‐to‐North Water Transfer Project: Is it Needed?
China has started the construction of the South-to-North Water Transfer Project (SNWTP; its magnitude is even greater than the Three Gorges Dam Project), to deliver about 45 billion m3 of water from… Expand
Stem cell protein Piwil1 endowed endometrial cancer cells with stem-like properties via inducing epithelial-mesenchymal transition
BackgroundStem cell protein Piwil1 functions as an oncogene in various tumor types. However, the exact function and mechanism of Piwil1 in endometrial cancer remains unclear.MethodsThe expression of… Expand
Suppression of the epithelial-mesenchymal transition by SHARP1 is linked to the NOTCH1 signaling pathway in metastasis of endometrial cancer
BackgroundMechanisms governing the metastasis of endometrial cancer (EC) are poorly defined. Recent data support a role for Enhancer-of-split and hairy-related protein 1 (SHARP1), a basic… Expand
Passively Mode-Locked Fiber Laser Based on Reduced Graphene Oxide on Microfiber for Ultra-Wide-Band Doublet Pulse Generation

Graphene with zero-band gap can be easily saturated under strong excitation due to Pauli blocking. In this work, the graphene oxide membrane is reduced on the surface of microfiber by use of high… Expand
SHARP1 Suppresses Angiogenesis of Endometrial Cancer by Decreasing Hypoxia-Inducible Factor-1α Level
Recent data support a role for SHARP1, a basic helix-loop-helix transcription repressor, in the regulation of malignant cell behavior in several human cancers. However, the expression and role of… Expand
