BACKGROUND Glycogen synthase kinase 3 beta (GSK3β) is centrally involved in diverse cellular processes, including proliferation and apoptosis. This study aimed to investigate the influence of GSK3β expression on the prognosis of human non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and the effects of GSK3β inhibition in NSCLC cell lines. METHODS Immunohistochemical(More)
BACKGROUND Ribosomal protein S6 (rpS6), a component of the 40S ribosomal subunit, is involved in multiple cellular bioactivities. However, its clinicopathological significance in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is poorly understood. METHODS Expressions of total rpS6 (t-rpS6) and phosphorylated rpS6 (Ser235/236, p-rpS6) were detected(More)
Genetic alterations could be responsible lung cancer, the leading cause of worldwide cancer death. This study investigated gene mutations in a Han Chinese family of lung cancer using the whole genome exome sequencing and subsequent Sanger sequencing validation and then confirmed alteration of prominin 1(PROM1) and cyclic AMP-response element binding(More)
BACKGROUND The roles of carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), cytokeratin 19 fragments (CYFRA21-1) and neuron-specific enolase (NSE) in metastases occurrence and poor diagnosis in specific histological classifications of lung cancer need further exploring. In this study, we investigated relationship between elevated levels of three biomarkers of CEA, CYFRA21-1(More)
Accumulating evidence supports that genetic factors are another risk factors for lung cancer. Previously, we used whole exome sequencing with sanger sequencing to search for genetic-related mutations in one of four individuals from a pedigree with lung cancer history. Then, we used PCR-RFLP and direct-sequence in the sample size of 318 individuals with lung(More)
