Breast cancer is the cause for highest number of cancer-related death among women worldwide. This study was focused on investigating the role of zinc-finger protein X-linked (ZFX) in human breast cancer. Expression levels of ZFX were analyzed in 99 patients and four breast cancer cell lines. Lentivirus-mediated RNA interference was applied to silence ZFX(More)
Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress is a critical factor involved in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Vitamin D and resveratrol are two nutritional factors that have reported neuroprotective effects, and findings from cellular models suggest that resveratrol could potentiate vitamin D's effects. We aimed to determine the effects of vitamin D &(More)
Asparagine synthetase (ASNS) is deemed to be a promising therapeutic target for the treatment of several cancers, but its functional role in human breast cancer is still unknown. In this study, we employed RNA interference as an efficient tool to silence endogenous ASNS expression in breast cancer cell lines. The relationship between ASNS expression and(More)
Objective: Lymphedema on affected side of upper limb is one of the most common complications after breast cancer surgery. This paper intends to discuss the morbidity of limb lymphedema and analyzes related risk factors, in hope of providing some guidance for early prevention of such complication. Method: 2,597 female patients with breast cancer who received(More)
We aimed to determine the effects of an 8 wk Hatha yoga training on blood glucose, insulin, lipid profiles, endothelial microparticles (EMPs), and inflammatory status in healthy, lean, and female Chinese subjects. A total of 30 healthy, female Chinese subjects were recruited and randomized into control or yoga practice group. The yoga practice included 8(More)
The protein encoded by immature colon carcinoma transcript 1 (ICT1) is a component of the human mitochondrial ribosome, and is reported to be implicated in cell proliferation, viability and apoptosis of HeLa cells. This study was conducted to investigate the role of ICT1 in human breast cancer. Oncomine database was used to investigate ICT1 expression in(More)
We report a 28-year-old woman who presented with a 6-year history of milk-like discharge from both of her nipples and was diagnosed with prolactinoma based on computed tomography (CT) findings and serum prolactin level. Further breast examination revealed a mass located in the upper outer region of the left breast. She underwent subtotal pituitary tumor(More)
