Despite the therapeutic success of tenofovir (TFV) for treatment of HIV-1 infection, numerous cases of nephrotoxicity have been reported. Mitochondrial toxicity has been purported as the major target of TFV-associated renal tubulopathy but the underlying molecular mechanism remains unclear. In this report, we use metabolomics and proteomics with HK-2 cells(More)
Drug resistance poses a major challenge to ovarian cancer treatment. Understanding mechanisms of drug resistance is important for finding new therapeutic targets. In the present work, a cisplatin-resistant ovarian cancer cell line A2780-DR was established with a resistance index of 6.64. The cellular accumulation of cisplatin was significantly reduced in(More)
MiR-145 is a tumor-suppressive microRNA that participates in the malignant progression of colorectal cancer (CRC). Although miR-145 has been reported to inhibit proliferation and to induce apoptosis of CRC cells, the reports about its role in invasion and metastasis are controversial. The regulation of miR-145 its own expression also requires further(More)
Cisplatin and other platinum-based drugs have been widely used in the treatment of ovarian cancer, but most patients acquire the drug resistance that greatly compromises the efficacy of drugs. Understanding the mechanism of drug resistance is important for finding new therapeutic approaches. In the present study, we found that the expression of vimentin was(More)
The frequently dysregulated Wnt/β-catenin signaling in different malignancies, by activation of its own or orchestration with other co-factors, regulates various oncogenic or tumor-suppressive genes. Among these genes, miRNAs, which are negative posttranscriptional regulators, are also embedded in the Wnt signaling network. Different from the Wnt-induced(More)
Zoledronate is a bisphosphonate that is widely used in the treatment of metabolic bone diseases. However, zoledronate induces significant nephrotoxicity associated with acute tubular necrosis and renal fibrosis when administered intravenously. There is speculation that zoledronate-induced nephrotoxicity may result from its pharmacological activity as an(More)
