Homeobox (HOX) transcript antisense RNA (HOTAIR), a long intergenic noncoding RNA (lincRNA), has been reported to play an oncogenic role in various cancers including small cell lung cancer (SCLC). However, it is not known whether HOTAIR can modulate chemoresistance in SCLC. The aim of this study is to investigate the roles of HOTAIR in chemoresistance of(More)
Proteomic approaches have been proven to provide an important tool in identifying drug resistance-associated proteins. The aim of this study was to investigate the protein profiling of drug resistance-related proteins in small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) by proteomic analysis. The proteomic profiling was performed by two-dimensional fluorescence difference gel(More)
Increasing circulating Ca2+ levels within the normal range has been reported to positively correlate with the incidence of fatal cardiovascular diseases (CVDs). However, limited studies have been able to delineate the potential mechanism(s) linking circulating Ca2+ to CVD. In this study, we exposed primary human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) and(More)
Taurine upregulated gene1 (TUG1) as a 7.1-kb lncRNA, has been shown to play an oncogenic role in various cancers. However, the biological functions of lncRNA TUG1 in small cell lung cancer (SCLC) remain unknown. The aim of this study is to explore the roles of TUG1 in cell growth and chemoresistance of SCLC and its possible molecular mechanism. The(More)
