DIXDC1 (Dishevelled-Axin domain containing 1) is a DIX (Dishevelled-Axin) domain-possessing protein that promotes colon cancer cell proliferation and increases the invasion and migration ability of non-small-cell lung cancer via the PI3K pathway. As a positive regulator of the Wnt/β-catenin pathway, the biological role of DIXDC1 in human gastric cancer and(More)
Acquired therapeutic resistance is the major drawback to effective systemic therapies for cancers. Aggressive triple-negative breast cancers (TNBC) develop resistance to chemotherapies rapidly, whereas the underlying mechanisms are not completely understood. Here we show that genotoxic treatments significantly increased the expression of miR-181a in TNBC(More)
CDK11(p58), a 58kDa protein of the PITSLRE kinase family, plays an important role in cell cycle progression, and is closely related to cell apoptosis. To gain further insight into the function of CDK11(p58), we screened a human fetal liver cDNA library for its interacting proteins using the yeast two-hybrid system. Here we report that histone(More)
Colorectal cancer (CRC) remains one of the most common cancers worldwide. We observed that MUC20 was significantly up-regulated in CRC patients with poor prognosis based on the microarray analysis. However, little is known about the role of MUC20 in CRC. Microarray experiments were performed on the Affymetrix U133 plus 2.0 GeneChip Array. The protein and(More)
CDK11(p58), a CDK11 family Ser/Thr kinase, is a G2/M specific protein and contributed to regulation of cell cycle, transcription and apoptotic signal transduction. Recently, CDK11(p58) has been reported to exert important functions in mitotic process, such as the regulation of bipolar spindle formation and sister chromatid cohesion. Here, we identified p21(More)
GADD45B is a member of the growth arrest DNA damage-inducible gene family associated with cell growth control, apoptosis, and DNA damage repair response. The aim of this study is to detect the role of GADD45B in colorectal carcinoma (CRC); the area not studied in depth to date. The mRNA and protein levels of GADD45B were examined by Real-Time quantitative(More)
Androgen receptor (AR) is essential for the maintenance of the male reproductive systems and is critical for the carcinogenesis of human prostate cancers (PCas). D-type cyclins are closely related to the repression of AR function. It has been well documented that cyclin D1 inhibits AR function through multiple mechanisms, but the mechanism of how cyclin D3(More)
The Rac1/Cdc42 effector, p21-activated kinase (PAK), is activated by various signaling cascades, including receptor-tyrosine kinases and integrins, and regulates a number of processes such as cell proliferation and motility. PAK activity has been shown to be required for maximal activation of the canonical RAF-MEK-MAPK signaling cascade, possibly because of(More)
Accumulating studies have focused on the oncogenic and tumor suppressive roles of the newly identified lncRNAs. A novel lncRNA BC040587 in 3q13.31 locus which exists frequent copy number alterations was found to be associated with poor survival of osteosarcoma patients. However, its role in breast cancer (BC) remains unknown. The aim of this study was to(More)
BCL2L12, a newly identified member of Bcl-2 family, and its transcript variant BCL2L12A have been found to be associated with favorable prognosis in breast cancer patients while correlated with tumorigenesis of glioblastoma and colon cancer. However, the biological functions of BCL2L12 and especially those of BCL2L12A are largely unknown. Here, we report(More)
