A unique metastasis gene signature enables prediction of tumor relapse in early-stage hepatocellular carcinoma patients.
Metastasis-related recurrence often occurs in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients who receive curative therapies. At present, it is challenging to identify patients with high risk of recurrence,Expand

Centrosome amplification and a defective G2-M cell cycle checkpoint induce genetic instability in BRCA1 exon 11 isoform-deficient cells.
Germline mutations of the Brca1 tumor suppressor gene predispose women to breast and ovarian cancers. To study mechanisms underlying BRCA1-related tumorigenesis, we derived mouse embryonic fibroblastExpand

EpCAM-positive hepatocellular carcinoma cells are tumor-initiating cells with stem/progenitor cell features.
BACKGROUND & AIMS Cancer progression/metastases and embryonic development share many properties including cellular plasticity, dynamic cell motility, and integral interaction with theExpand

EpCAM and alpha-fetoprotein expression defines novel prognostic subtypes of hepatocellular carcinoma.
The heterogeneous nature of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and the lack of appropriate biomarkers have hampered patient prognosis and treatment stratification. Recently, we have identified that aExpand

Impaired DNA damage response, genome instability, and tumorigenesis in SIRT1 mutant mice.
In lower eukaryotes, Sir2 serves as a histone deacetylase and is implicated in chromatin silencing, longevity, and genome stability. Here we mutated the Sirt1 gene, a homolog of yeast Sir2, in miceExpand

SIRT2 maintains genome integrity and suppresses tumorigenesis through regulating APC/C activity.
Members of sirtuin family regulate multiple critical biological processes, yet their role in carcinogenesis remains controversial. To investigate the physiological functions of SIRT2 in developmentExpand

TP53 mutations and hepatocellular carcinoma: insights into the etiology and pathogenesis of liver cancer
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most common malignancies worldwide and the major risk factors include chronic infections with the hepatitis B (HBV) or C (HCV) virus, and exposure toExpand

MicroRNAs in liver disease.
MicroRNAs are small noncoding RNA molecules that regulate gene expression posttranscriptionally through complementary base pairing with thousands of messenger RNAs. They regulate diverseExpand

Association with Cdc2 and inhibition of Cdc2/Cyclin B1 kinase activity by the p53-regulated protein Gadd45
Recently Gadd45, a p53-regulated stress protein, has been implicated in the activation of a G2/M checkpoint after damage by UV radiation and alkylating agents. While inhibitory phosphorylation ofExpand
