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)
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)
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)

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)
The pathogenesis of microsatellite stable hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancers (MSS HNPCC) is unclear. To identify genomic regions that might be involved in MSS HNPCC pathogenesis, we selected 20 pairs of MSS HNPCC for a genome-wide study using copy number variation targeted (CNV-targeted) CytoScan HD Array. A remarkably increased frequency of 20q(More)
The genetic etiology of hereditary breast cancer has not been fully elucidated. Although germline mutations of high-penetrance genes such as BRCA1/2 are implicated in development of hereditary breast cancers, at least half of all breast cancer families are not linked to these genes. To identify a comprehensive spectrum of genetic factors for hereditary(More)
Mismatch repair defective (MMRd) colorectal carcinoma (CRC) is a distinct molecular phenotype of colorectal cancer, including 12% of sporadic CRC and 3% of Lynch Syndrome. In order to investigate the clinicopathological characteristics of MMRd colorectal carcinoma, and to find the most effective method for preliminary screening, 296 CRC fulfilled revised(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 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)
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)
