Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is a malignant disease insensitive to conventional treatments such as radiochemotherapy and immunotherapy. Search for new approaches to induce cancer cell apoptosis will improve the management of RCC. Here, we reported that zerumbone, a monosesquiterpine, shows anticancer effects on human RCC cells via induction of apoptosis in(More)
c-Met is a transmembrane tyrosine kinase receptor that may be activated by hepatocyte growth factor, an inducer of epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT), to regulate the associated downstream gene expression. This process is critical to cell migration in normal and pathological conditions. In the present study, the function of c-Met in the process of EMT(More)
Accumulating evidence suggests that epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) acts as an important factor for the promotion of tumor progression. Strategies for suppressing EMT remain the subject of ongoing research. In the present study, fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS) was used to isolate side population (SP) cells from human prostate cancer (PCa)(More)
BACKGROUND Among the different organs used for NOTES (natural orifice translumenal endoscopic surgery) technique, the transvaginal approach may be the optimal choice because of a simple and secure closure of colpotomy site. Pure and hybrid NOTES transvaginal operations were routinely performed via transperitoneal access. In this study, we investigate the(More)
