The human embryonic lethal abnormal vision-like protein, HuR, is a member of the Hu family of RNA-binding proteins. Over the past decade, this ubiquitously expressed protein has been extensively investigated in cancer research because it is involved in the regulation of mRNA stability and translation in many cell types. HuR activity and function is(More)
Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is one of the most frequent cancers and a leading cause of death from cancer in China. The human ELAV-like protein HuR has been found to contribute to cancer development and progression through stabilizing a group of cellular mRNAs of cancer-related genes. In this study, we investigated the expression of HuR in a(More)
BACKGROUND Neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has been shown to be a prognostic indicator in several types of cancer. We aimed to investigate the association between NLR and survival in surgery-treated non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients. STUDY DESIGN This large retrospective study included 1,245 patients who underwent initial surgery for stage(More)
A mannanase-coding gene was cloned from Sphingobacterium sp. GN25 isolated from the feces of Grus nigricollis. The gene encodes a 371-residue polypeptide (ManAGN25) showing less than 74 % identity with a number of hypothetical proteins and putative glucanases and mannanases. Before experiment’s performance, ManAGN25 was predicted to be a low-temperature(More)
