The low survival rate of patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) is mainly due to the drug resistance of tumor cells to chemotherapeutic agents. It has been reported that basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) is an essential factor involved in the epigenetic mechanisms of drug resistance, which provides a novel potential target for improving the sensitivity(More)
The interplay between autophagy and apoptosis response to chemotherapy is still a subject of intense debate in recent years. More efforts have focused on the regulation effects of apoptosis on autophagy, whereas how autophagy affects apoptosis remains poorly understood. In this study performed on prostate cancer cells, we investigated the role of autophagy(More)
Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is a leading cause of cancer-related mortality worldwide. Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) is up-regulated in NSCLC patients and plays an important role in tumor growth. In this paper, we attempt to evaluate the therapeutic potential of bFGF binding peptide (named as P7) using as a potent bFGF antagonist via(More)
Development of drug resistance is a challenging problem in cancer chemotherapy. It has been shown that basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) plays an important role in an epigenetic mechanism of drug resistance. We have isolated a bFGF binding peptide P7 with inhibitory activity against bFGF-induced proliferation of human gastric cancer cells by screening a(More)
Cellular acetylation homeostasis is a kinetic balance precisely controlled by histone acetyl-transferase (HAT) and histone deacetylase (HDAC) activities. The loss of the counterbalancing function of basal HAT activity alters the precious HAT:HDAC balance towards enhanced histone deacetylation, resulting in a loss of acetylation homeostasis, which is closely(More)
Fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) is a bone-derived endocrine regulator of phosphate homeostasis and has been considered as a potential therapeutic target for hypophosphatemic disorders. Herein, we isolated a novel FGF23-binding peptide by screening a phage display library with FGF23180–205, the minimal epitope of FGF23 binding to the binary fibroblast(More)
