To investigate the effect of acylated ghrelin on the activation of TLR4/NF-κB signaling pathway induced by palmitic acid in human monocyte-derived (THP-1) macrophages, THP-1 macrophages were cultured for 12 h by palmitic acid with various concentrations. The THP-1 macrophages was pretreated by acylated ghrelin at different doses for 4 h before cultivated by(More)
An increased risk of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) has been linked with obesity and metabolic syndrome. However, the mechanisms by which lipid metabolic disorders affect the development of RCC remain unclear and highly controversial. Integrin-linked kinase (ILK) is a serine/threo-nine protein kinase involved in the regulation of tumor cell growth and(More)
Abnormal serum lipid profiles are associated with the risk of some cancers, but the direction and magnitude of the association with renal cell carcinoma is unclear. We explore the relationship between serum lipids and renal cell carcinoma via a matched case-control study. A 1∶2-matched case-control study design was applied, where one renal cell carcinoma(More)
