PURPOSE TGF-β promotes tumor invasion and metastasis by inducing an epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT). However, the underlying mechanisms causing this are not entirely clear. Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNA) have been shown to play important regulatory roles in cancer progression. The lncRNA malat1 (metastasis associated lung adenocarcinoma transcript 1)(More)
Chemotherapy is a reasonable alternative to cystectomy in patients with invasive and advanced bladder cancer. However, bladder cancer cells often develop drug resistance to these therapies, and ~ 50% of patients with advanced bladder cancer do not respond to chemotherapy. Recent studies have shown that long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) is involved in the(More)
The recent discovery of a large number of histone methyltransferases reveals important roles of these enzymes in regulating tumor development and progression. SMYD3, a histone methyltransferase, is associated with poor prognosis of patients with prostate and gastric cancer. In the study, we attempted to investigate its putative oncogenic role on bladder(More)
