Colorectal cancer is one of the most common cancers in the world. Protein phosphatase magnesium-dependent 1 d (PPM1D) is aberrantly upregulated in many human carcinoma cells, and recent research has suggested that it could be a potential therapeutic target of cancer. However, the function of PPM1D in colorectal carcinoma cells is not well studied. To(More)
Integrin-linked kinase (ILK), a ubiquitously expressed and evolutionally conserved serine/threonine kinase, has been shown to be aberrantly overexpressed and activated in diversified types of human malignancies, including colorectal cancer (CRC). However, the potential role of ILK in cancer cell migration and invasion remains to be elucidated. In this(More)
Multi-exon genes may generate distinct isoforms in different conditions and exhibit versatile properties. Here we investigated the isoform-specific gene expression and the gene expression changes of without and with serum-induced human HCT-116 colon cancer cell lines. For these analyses, 4 transcriptome sequencing datasets were used and 2 replicates for(More)
Somatic variants, which occur in the genome of all cells, are well accepted to play a critical role in cancer development, as their accumulation in genes could affect cell proliferations and cell cycle. In order to understand the role of somatic mutations in human colorectal cancers, we characterized the mutation spectrum in two colorectal tumor tissues and(More)
Hyperlipidemic pancreatitis (HP) is a serious inflammatory disease with very high mortality and multiple organ injuries including renal injury. Rosiglitazone (Ros), an agonist of peroxisome proliferator activated receptor-γ (PPAR-γ), was reported to show a protective role against pancreatitis. However, whether Ros has an effect on renal injury caused by HP(More)
