Temozolomide (TMZ) is a promising chemotherapeutic agent for treating glioblastomas. However, resistance develops quickly with a high frequency. Glioblastoma stem cells (GSCs) causing resistance to drug therapy were considered to be one of key factors. The mechanisms underlying GSCs resistance to TMZ are not fully understood. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have emerged(More)
Despite advances in clinical therapies and technologies, the prognosis for patients with malignant glioma is poor. Our previous research demonstrated that glioma stem cells (GSCs) were crucial for glioma malignancy and accelerated tumor migration and invasion. The migration and invasion of malignant glioma cells into the surrounding normal brain tissues(More)
BACKGROUND Protocadherin8 has been demonstrated to play critical roles in initiation and progression of several human cancers. It is frequently inactivated by promoter methylation in cancers and may be used as a potential biomarker. However, the methylation status of protocadherin8 and its clinical significance in prostate cancer remains largely unknown.(More)
Bocavirus include bovine parvovirus, minute virus of canine, porcine bocavirus, gorilla bocavirus, and Human bocaviruses 1-4 (HBoVs). Although recent reports showed that recombination happened in bocavirus, no systematical study investigated the recombination of bocavirus. The present study performed the phylogenetic and recombination analysis of bocavirus(More)
BACKGROUND PCDH8 is a tumor suppressor that regulates cell adhesin, proliferation, and migration. It is often inactivated by aberrant promoter methylation in several human cancers, including clear cell renal cell carcinoma (CCRCC). The clinical significance of PCDH8 methylation in CCRCC remains unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate the(More)
Recently, several reports have revealed that some simian adenoviruses (AdVs) strains show a close relationship to human AdVs. In the present study, a simian AdV strain named SAdV-ch1 was detected in chimpanzees in China, and its complete genome was determined. Phylogenetic analysis revealed SAdV-ch1 clustering in a clade that was separate from all of the(More)
BACKGROUND Prostate cancer is a one of the most common malignant diseases in men worldwide. Now it is a challenge to identify patients at higher risk for relapse and progression after surgery, and more novel prognostic biomarkers are needed. The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical significance of protocadherin17 (PCDH17) methylation in serum(More)
Bufavirus (BuV) was first discovered from feces of children with acute diarrhea. It was subsequently detected from several animal species including shrews, bats, and nonhuman primates. In this study, we identified a novel Protoparvovirus, designated RatBuV, from the intestinal contents of wild rats using viral metagenomics. The near complete genome was 4643(More)
Bocaviruses have been found in the feces of humans and a variety of animals, including pigs, cattle, dogs, gorillas, cats, and sea lions. Here, we have characterized the almost complete genome (5224 nt) of a novel bocavirus from feces of domestic minks, which has been provisionally named mink bocavirus. The NS1 protein of mink bocavirus shared 36.9–52 %(More)
Chapparvovirus, a recently determined new genus in the family Parvoviridae, can infect many species of animals including bats, chickens, and pigs. Here, using viral metagenomics method, we identified a novel Chapparvovirus from feces of wild rats and designated it as rat parvovirus 2 (RPV2). The nearly complete genome of RPV2 is 4222-nt long and includes(More)
