Livin is one of the most important members of the inhibitor of apoptosis protein family. It is overexpressed in several types of tumors and may have prognostic significance. The present study investigated the biological role of Livin in the oncogenic behavior of gastric cancer cells, the expression of Livin in gastric cancer tissue and the relationship of(More)
Myeloid cell leukemia-1 (Mcl-1) is a highly expressed anti-apoptotic Bcl-2 protein in cancer. Therefore, inhibition of its expression induces apoptosis in cancer cells and enhances sensitivity to cancer treatment. The aims of this study were to evaluate whether Mcl-1 affects the oncogenic behaviors of colorectal cancer cells, and to document the(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), the primary catechin in green tea, has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative properties. The aim of the current study was to characterize the impact of EGCG on lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced innate signaling in bone marrow-derived macrophages (BMMs) isolated from ICR mice. METHODS The effect of EGCG on(More)
OBJECTIVES Several human tumor tissues show an aberrant expression and activation of recepteur d'origine nantais (RON). In this paper, we investigate the expression of RON in human laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and evaluate whether RON affects the tumor cell progression in human laryngeal SCC cell line. METHODS Immunohistochemistry was used to(More)
Altered Recepteur d’Origine nantais (RON) expression transduces signals inducting invasive growth phenotype that includes cell proliferation, migration, matrix invasion, and protection of apoptosis in human cancer cells. The aims of the current study were to evaluate whether RON affects tumor cell behavior and cellular signaling pathways including activator(More)
The recepteur d'origine nantais (RON) receptor tyrosine kinase is overexpressed in epithelial cancers, including gastric cancer. The aims of the present study were to evaluate whether RON affects tumor cell behaviors and oncogenic signaling pathways, and to document the relationship of its expression with various clinicopathological parameters in gastric(More)
The expression of myeloid cell leukemia-1 (Mcl‑1), a member of the anti-apoptotic Bcl-2 protein family, has been associated with tumor progression and adverse patient outcome. The aims of current study were to evaluate whether Mcl-1 affects the survival or death of gastric cancer cells, and to investigate the prognostic value of its expression in gastric(More)
AIMS AND BACKGROUND The aims of the current study were to evaluate whether recepteur d'origine nantais (RON) affects tumor cell behavior and oncogenic signaling pathways in colorectal cancer, and to examine the relationship of its expression with various clinicopathological parameters and patient survival. METHODS Immunohistochemistry, Western blot and(More)
The recepteur d'origine nantais (RON) receptor tyrosine kinase is highly expressed in various cancers including human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and involved in tumor progression. The aims of the current study were to evaluate whether RON affects tumor cell behavior and oncogenic signaling cascades in HCC (More)
Prospero homeobox 1 (PROX1) is up-regulated in colorectal cancer and plays an oncogenic role. In the present study, we sought to investigate the impact of PROX1 on oncogenic processes and to assess the prognostic value of PROX1 expression in colorectal cancer. A small interfering RNA or pcDNA6-myc vector was used to control PROX1 gene expression in(More)
