Tumor microenvironment is crucial to tumor development and metastasis. Little is known about the roles of stromal proteins in colorectal carcinogenesis. In this study, we used a combination of laser capture microdissection (LCM), iTRAQ labeling and two-dimensional liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (2D LC-MS/MS) to compare stromal proteomes in(More)
A quantitative proteomic approach was used to discover potential protein markers associated with lymph node metastasis (LNM) in human lung squamous carcinoma (LSC). Laser capture microdissection was performed to purify LSC cells with LNM (LNM LSC) and LSC without LNM (non-LNM LSC). The differentially expressed proteins between pooled microdissected non-LNM(More)
In this study, we applied laser capture microdissection and a proteomic approach to identify novel nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) biomarkers. Proteins from pooled microdissected NPC and normal nasopharyngeal epithelial tissues (NNET) were separated by two-dimensional gel electrophoresis, and differential proteins were identified by mass spectrometry.(More)
Radiotherapy is the primary treatment for nasopharyngeal cancer (NPC), but radioresistance remains a serious obstacle to successful treatment in many cases. To identify the proteins involved in this resistance and to evaluate their potential for predicting NPC response to radiotherapy, we first established a radioresistant subclone cell line (CNE2-IR)(More)
In order to screen the aging related proteins in human normal colon epithelia, the comparative proteomics analysis was applied to get the two-dimensional electrophoresis (2-DE) profiles with high resolution and reproducibility from normal colon epithelial tissues of young and aged people. Differential proteins between the colon epithelia of two age groups(More)
There is currently substantial interest in the identification of human tumor antigens for the diagnosis and immunotherapy of cancer. In our previous study, secretion character and up-regulation of triosephosphate isomerase were observed in lung squamous cell carcinoma, and autoantibodies against triosephosphate isomerase and peroxiredoxin 6 were detected in(More)
Laryngeal carcinoma (LC) is the most commonly diagnosed malignancy and recently the incidence of this disease has increased. By means of the mRNA differential display method we identified a cDNA, Laryngeal carcinoma related gene 1 (LCRG1) which has significantly reduced expression in 40% (12/30) of primary LCs and in 6 of 10 various cancer cell lines.(More)
14-3-3 sigma, the downstream target of p53, is a negative regulator of cell cycle G2-M phase checkpoint in response to DNA damage. Our previous comparative proteomics study showed that 14-3-3 sigma was downregulated or lost in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) tissue compared with non-cancerous nasopharyngeal epithelial tissue (NNET). In this study, we further(More)
Tumor microenvironment plays very important roles in the carcinogenesis. A variety of stromal cells in the microenvironment have been modified to support the unique needs of the malignant state. This study was to discover stromal differentially expressed proteins (DEPs) that were involved in colon carcinoma carcinogenesis. Laser capture microdissection(More)
