BACKGROUND Aquaporins are a family of membrane-bound water channel proteins that regulate the flow of water across a variety of biological membranes. The expression of aquaporin 8 and aquaporin 9 has been demonstrated in human chorioamniotic membrane and placenta. But their roles in the pathophysiology of polyhydramnios are unclear. AIMS To study the(More)
Ovarian cancer is the major cause of death in women with gynecologic malignancies. There is emerging evidence that Androgen/androgen receptor (AR) signaling plays a critical role in the etiology and progression of this disease. Androgen receptor is frequently expressed in various subtypes of ovarian cancers and androgen/AR signaling has been shown to(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify candidate biomarkers for squamous cervical cancer as well as reveal the molecular mechanism underlying this disease by a proteomic approach. METHODS Proteins from 10 pairs of human squamous cervical cancer and matching adjacent normal cervical tissues were separated by two-dimensional gel electrophoresis and the differentially(More)
Pyruvate kinase M2 (PKM2) is the key enzyme in the Warburg effect and plays a central role in cancer cell metabolic reprogramming. Recently, quite a few studies have investigated the correlation between PKM2 expression and prognosis in multiple cancer patients, but results were inconsistent. We therefore performed a meta-analysis to explore the prognostic(More)
Altered expressions of receptor for advanced glycation end-products (RAGE) and its ligand (S100A9) are observed in many cancers and play a key role in inflammation-associated cancer. In our previous study, by two-dimensional gel electrophoresis followed by mass spectrometry, the expression of S100A9 protein was found to increase in squamous cervical cancer(More)
A systematic review is done to determine the efficacy and safety of levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine systems as a treatment using in premenopausal women with symptomatic uterine leiomyoma. We searched the Medline, Central and ICTRP databases for all articles published from inception through July 2013 that examined the following outcomes: uterine(More)
We evaluated the genotype distributions of human papillomavirus (HPV) in cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) and cervical cancer (CC) cases. Cervical exfoliated cells from 490 patients (125, 231, and 134 patients in groups CIN1, CIN2+, and CC, respectively) were tested to determine the HPV genotypes. The positive rates were statistically analyzed to(More)
Our previous long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) microarray revealed that lncRNA-TCONS_00026907 is aberrantly expressed between cervical cancer tissues and adjacent tissues. This study aims to explore the potential role of TCONS_00026907 in the development of cervical cancer. The expression levels of TCONS_00026907 in cervical cancer tissues and adjacent tissues(More)
