In this paper, FTIR spectroscopy was applied to compare the serum from leukemia patients with the serum from healthy persons. IR spectra of leukemia patients' serum were similar with IR spectra of healthy persons' serum, and they were all made up of proteins, lipids and nucleic acids, etc. In order to identify leukemia patients' serum and healthy persons'(More)
CtBP2 has been demonstrated to possess tumor-promoting capacities by virtue of up-regulating epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and down-regulating apoptosis in cancer cells. As a result, cellular CtBP2 levels are considered a key factor determining the outcome of oncogenic transformation. How pro-tumorigenic and anti-tumorigenic factors compete for(More)
OBJECTIVE Gliomas are the most common type of primary intracranial tumor. Although tumor grade predicts the clinical course of most patients, molecular characteristics of individual tumors have emerged as important prognostic factors for patients with gliomas. Reduced expression of p27 protein is known as an independent prognostic marker in a large variety(More)
GOAL The aim of the present study was to examine the expression of Jun activation domain-binding protein 1(Jab1) and p27 and to elucidate its clinicopathologic significance in a larger series of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the esophagus. BACKGROUND Reduced expression of p27 has been associated with poor prognosis in most human cancers, including(More)
Receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) expression and the growth factor such as platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) and their receptors have been considered relevant in the process of angiogenesis and dissemination in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). Small glutamine-rich tetratricopeptide repeat-containing protein alpha (SGTA) downstream of RTK(More)
p29, also known as SYF2/fSAP29/NTC31, is a protein associated with chromatin and involved in DNA damage response, cell cycle arrest and pre-mRNA splicing. In p29-depleted cells, DNA replication was reduced and cell population in G1 phase increased. In this study, we investigated the potential role of p29 in the regulation of non-small cell lung cancer(More)
BACKGROUND Increased expression of cyclinH (CCNH) and cyclin-dependent kinase 7 (CDK7) has a relationship with poor prognosis in most human cancers. AIM Investigate the expression of CCNH and CDK7 in human esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) and the effect of chemotherapy on their expression. METHODS Western blotting and immunohistochemistry were(More)
To investigate whether Foxo3a expression is correlated with p27(kip1) protein levels as well as how it might be clinically relevant, we evaluated the expression of Foxo3a in several ovarian tumors. Immunohistochemical analysis was performed in 63 cases of ovarian tumors. Ten cases were evaluated by Western blot analysis. There was a correlation observed(More)
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is one of the major neurological diseases of the elderly. The deposition of Aβ peptide, which can induce neuronal oxidative stress, inflammation and apoptosis, plays important roles in neuronal degeneration in AD. Currently, there are no effective drug treatment options for preventing or even slowing Alzheimer's disease. Bilobalide(More)
CtBP2, as a transcriptional corepressor of epithelial-specific genes, has been reported to promote tumor due to upregulating epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in cancer cells. CtBP2 was also demonstrated to contribute to the proliferation of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) cells through a negative transcriptional regulation of p16INK4A. In(More)
