Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide. Deregulation of microRNAs (miRNAs) has been reported to participate in CRC progression. In the present study, we observed downregulation of miR-218 and upregulation of YEATS domain containing 4 (YEATS4) in CRC tissues and in multidrug-resistant HCT-116/L-OHP cells compared with(More)
Cisplatin (DDP) based chemotherapy is still the main strategy of human gastric cancer (GC) treatment. However, drug resistance is a major obstacle for DDP chemotherapy. Recent studies indicated that the resistance could be modulated by the regulation of dysregulated microRNAs (miRs). Previous study also found miR-34a was associated with cell proliferation(More)
Chemoresistance is a major obstacle to cancer therapy including that of colon cancer (CC). Although the dysregulation of many miRNAs has been implicated in 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) resistance in CC cells, the specific role of miR-20b in chemoresistance has not been documented. In the present study, we first determined the expression of miR-20b by RT-PCR and(More)
OBJECTIVE To predict and identify the target gene of miR-145, and to explore the underlying mechanism of the inhibition of miR-145 on drug resistance to Oxaliplatin (L-OHP) in human colorectal cancer cells. METHODS L-OHP-resistant human colorectal cancer cell line (HCT116/L-OHP) was established in vitro by exposing to increased concentrations of L-OHP in(More)
Protease-activated receptors (PARs) are G protein-coupled receptors of which four members PAR1, PAR2, PAR3, and PAR4 have been identified, characterized by a typical mechanism of activation involving various related proteases. The amino-terminal sequence of PARs is cleaved by a broad array of proteases, leading to specific proteolytic cleavage which forms(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the role of death associated protein kinase(DAPK) in colon cancer drug-resistance. METHODS Immunohistochemistry was used to detect DAPK expression in colon carcinoma tissues of 61 cases and adjacent tissues of 32 cases. 5-fluorouracil (5-FU)-induced drug-resistant colon cancer cell lines HCT116/5-FU model was established.(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the expression of myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSC) in peripheral blood of patients with rectal carcinoma and to preliminarily explore its clinical significance. METHODS Blood samples from 76 rectal carcinoma patients who underwent surgery in Department of General Surgery, The Affiliated Cancer Hospital, Zhengzhou University(More)
BACKGROUND Neuroendocrine carcinoma of the colorectum is a kind of malignant tumor composed of neuroendocrine cells, with a unique hormone synthesis and secretory function. In recent years, more and more attention is being paid to this kind of tumor, with its high malignant potential, poor differentiation, high invasiveness and early metastasis. (More)
