Eph receptor 2 (EphA2) overexpression is frequently accompanied by the loss of its cognate ligand during tumor progression. However, the molecular mechanism of this ligand-independent promotion of tumor by EphA2 remains unclear in highly malignant and fatal cholangiocarcinoma (CC). We examined the biological role of EphA2 in tumor growth and metastasis in(More)
Novel biomarkers are needed for early detection and progression evaluation of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The purpose of this study was to identify useful biomolecular markers for HCC. The 26 genes that encode membrane or secretory proteins were identified from cDNA microarray data. We further examined the expression of EFNA1 and its receptor EphA2 and(More)
BACKGROUND The molecular mechanisms of CC (cholangiocarcinoma) oncogenesis and progression are poorly understood. This study aimed to determine the genome-wide expression of genes related to CC oncogenesis and sarcomatous transdifferentiation. METHODS Genes that were differentially expressed between CC cell lines or tissues and cultured normal biliary(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the pathological changes and investigate the correlation of hepatocyte apoptosis with cytochrome P450 2E1(CYP2E1) expression and oxygen free radical in alcoholic liver disease (ALD) in rat. METHODS 40% ethanol in the dose of 8 g/kg body weight was given to rats by gavage twice daily for 8 weeks in model group (n=37), and rats in(More)
