Tomato chlorosis virus (ToCV, genus Crinivirus, family Closteroviridae) is an economically important virus in more than 20 countries. In China, ToCV was first detected in 2013 and has already spreadExpand
Seven-senescence-associated gene signature predicts overall survival for Asian patients with hepatocellular carcinoma
BACKGROUND Cellular senescence is a recognized barrier for progression of chronic liver diseases to hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The expression of a cluster of genes is altered in response toExpand
The density of macrophages in the invasive front is inversely correlated to liver metastasis in colon cancer
BackgroundAlthough an abundance of evidence has indicated that tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) are associated with a favorable prognosis in patients with colon cancer, it is still unknown howExpand
Six-long non-coding RNA signature predicts recurrence-free survival in hepatocellular carcinoma
BACKGROUND Recent evidence shows that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are closely related to hepatogenesis and a few aggressive features of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Increasing studiesExpand
