In this study, we investigated the association of metabotropic glutamate receptor subtype-5a (mGluR5a) with cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator-associated ligand (CAL). Using glutathione-S-transferase pull-down techniques, we found that mGluR5a directly interacted with CAL, with the C-terminus of the receptor binding to the(More)
Metabotropic glutamate receptor subtype 1a (mGluR1a) associates with the proteins mediating its receptor activity, suggesting a complex-controlled function of mGluR1a. Here, using glutathione-S-transferase pull-down, co-immunoprecipitation and immunofluorescence assays in vitro and in vivo, we have found CFTR-associated ligand (CAL) to be a novel binding(More)
C/EBPα plays an important role in the modulation of cell proliferation, differentiation or apoptosis in various tissues. Most recently, reduced expression of C/EBPα and growth inhibitory effect was found in primary mammary carcinomas. However, the underlying mechanism is still not fully aware. Here, we firstly identified miR-134 as a target of C/EBPα in(More)
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers and causes of cancer death in developed countries. SphK2 is overexpressed in a number of aggressive human carcinomas; however, the expression profile and potential function of SphK2 in CRC are still unknown. In this study, we investigated the SphK2 expression in tumoral tissue and the(More)
Activation of C-C chemokine receptor type 7 (CCR7) has been demonstrated to mediate the occurrence and progression of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, the potential therapeutic role of CCR7 inhibition in NSCLC is still obscure. Thus, the present study was conducted to investigate the molecular mechanism underlying the inhibition of CCR7 on cell(More)
Breast cancer is the most common malignancy in women around the world, and its incidence and mortality rates are still rising. An increasing number of studies have reported that SOX18 plays an important role in various cancers. However, the role of SOX18 in breast cancer remains poorly understood. In this study, we aimed to investigate the biological role(More)
