BACKGROUND The p53 tumour suppressor protein is a transcription factor that prevents oncogenic progression by activating the expression of apoptosis and cell-cycle arrest genes in stressed cells. The stability of p53 is tightly regulated by ubiquitin-dependent degradation, driven mainly by its negative regulators ubiquitin ligase MDM2. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS(More)
PURPOSE Small cell carcinoma of esophagus (SCEC) is characterized by high malignancy and early metastasis. Although the morbidity of SCEC is very low, few studies of patients with SCEC have been conducted in China, there are no sufficient studies of SCEC conducted and reported in the existing published works, and the choices of treatment remain(More)
We compared the curative and side-effects in esophageal carcinoma treated by conventional fraction (CF) and late course accelerated hyperfraction (LCAF) three-dimensional conformal radiotherapy. Ninety-eight patients were randomly assigned to two different radiotherapy model groups. Fifty patients were treated using CF three-dimensional conformal(More)
The English items of Gambling Related Cognitions Scale (GRCS) were first developed and validated by community-based population in 2004. The scale is now becoming a validated and reliable instrument to assess gambling related cognitions in the gambling literature of the West. The present study recruited 730 general adult Chinese individuals to validate the(More)
Ca(2+)-binding protein of 45 kDa (Cab45), a CREC family member, is reported to be associated with Ca(2+)-dependent secretory pathways and involved in multiple diseases including cancers. Cab45-G, a Cab45 isoform protein, plays an important role in protein sorting and secretion at Golgi complex. However, its role in cancer cell migration remains elusive. In(More)
OBJECTIVE Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is one of the deadliest cancers worldwide. Yin Yang 1 (YY1) is a ubiquitous and multifunctional zinc-finger transcription factor that plays important biological functions in cell homeostasis and tumorigenesis. The purpose of this study was to investigate the expression of YY1 in different ESCC tissues and(More)
