Background. Interleukin (IL)-8 has been implicated in the development of cancer cachexia. The polymorphism of IL-8 gene, which may affect the production level of IL-8, may be associated with cancer cachexia. Methods. The serum IL-8 level in our study was examined by radioimmunoassay. We also analyzed single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) -251 A/T and +781(More)
Macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) is a key pro-inflammatory mediator. It plays an important role part in the pathogenesis of several inflammatory and immune diseases. A functional single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) of MIF −173 G/C is known to influence MIF promoter activity in T lymphoblast cell lines and is associated with a higher serum MIF(More)
Protein-protein docking is an important computational tool for predicting protein-protein interactions. With the rapid development of proteomics projects, more and more experimental binding information ranging from mutagenesis data to three-dimensional structures of protein complexes are becoming available. Therefore, how to appropriately incorporate the(More)
