Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are recently identified regulators in tumorigenesis and tumour progression. BRAF-activated lncRNA (BANCR) is overexpressed in melanoma and has a potential functional role in melanoma cell migration. However, little is known concerning the role of BANCR in the development of colorectal cancer (CRC). The current study examined(More)
Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are novel regulators in cancer biology. BRAF-activated lncRNA (BANCR) is overexpressed in melanoma and has a potential functional role in melanoma cell migration. However, little is known about the role of BANCR in the development of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). In the present study, BANCR expression was examined in six(More)
To date, many studies have shown that microRNAs (miRNA) exhibit altered expression levels in various cancers and may play a potential role as diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers of cancers. This meta-analysis was designed to evaluate the exact role of microRNA-31 (miR-31) for survival and discuss the possibility of utilizing miR-31 to predict the prognosis(More)
Retinol-binding protein 4 (RBP4) is closely associated with a variety of abnormal glycolipid metabolism diseases such as insulin resistance, obesity, diabetes mellitus, and metabolic syndrome. Part 1 Twenty-four male C57/B6 mice were randomly divided into a normal control group (group C, n = 8), a gallstone group (group G, n = 8), and a medication group(More)
Colorectal cancer(CRC) is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in human beings and metastasis is the main death reason. Recently, Gli1 has been reported to be a key regulator of various cancer biologies and genes expressions. However, the detailed molecular mechanism of Gli1 in CRC metastasis remains largely unknown. In this study, we aimed to(More)
Cholangiocarcinoma is a malignant tumor originating from biliary epithelial cells. The tumor suppressor gene tropomyosin 1 (TPM1) is downregulated in several human cancer types; however, its expression status in cholangiocarcinoma is still unknown. We elucidated TPM1 expression and its regulation mechanism in(More)
Dear Editor: Endometriosis is defined as the presence of endometrial-like tissue outside the uterine cavity. Of all the cases of endome-triosis, intestinal endometriosis accounting for about 10 %, the rectum and sigmoid colon are the most vulnerable position of the intestinal tract. For doctors, the diagnosis of colorectal endometriosis is difficult ,(More)
An increased risk of colorectal cancer is related to the development of metabolic syndromes including hyperglycemia, and hyperinsulinemia. The high circulatory levels of glucose and/or insulin or the application of exogenous insulin may promote carcinogenesis, cancer progression and metastasis, which can be attributed to the Warburg effect or aerobic(More)
Karrikins are potent germination stimulants generated by the combustion of plant matter. Treatment of Arabidopsis with karrikins triggers a signaling process that is dependent upon a putative receptor protein KARRIKIN INSENSITIVE 2 (KAI2). KAI2 is a homolog of DWARF 14 (D14), the receptor for endogenous strigolactone hormones. Genetic analyses suggest that(More)
BACKGROUND Secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) (i.e., renal hyperparathyroidism) is one of the most serious complications in long-term hemodialysis patients. The purpose of this retrospective study was to explore the feasibility of a new surgical approach--endoscopic total parathyroidectomy with autotransplantation (ETP+AT)--and evaluate its practical(More)
