NRP1 as multifunctional non-tyrosine-kinase receptors play critical roles in tumor progression. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are an important class of pervasive genes that are involved in a variety of biological functions, particularly cancer. It remains unclear whether miRNAs can regulate the expression of NRP1. The goal of this study was to identify miRNAs that(More)
Within the family of RTKs (receptor tyrosine kinases), PDGFR (platelet-derived growth factor receptor) has been implicated in carcinogenesis and tumour development. miRNAs (microRNAs), which can target the mRNAs (messenger RNAs) of cancer-associated genes, are abnormally expressed in various cancers. In this study, our aim was to identify the miRNAs that(More)
Epithelial‑to‑mesenchymal transition (EMT) is believed to be associated with cancer cell malignancy, and also to cause cancer invasion and metastasis. Recent evidence indicates that small non‑protein coding RNA [microRNAs (miRNAs/miRs)] may act as powerful regu‑ lators of EMT. The present study aimed to systematically delineate miR‑503 expression in gastric(More)
Background/Aims No clinical model exists to predict the occurrence of hepatocellular carcinoma in sustained virologic response-achieving (HCC after SVR) patients with chronic hepatitis C (CHC). Methods We performed a case-control study using a clinical database to research the risk factors for HCC after SVR. A predictive model based on risk factors was(More)
