We previously reported that PlncRNA-1, a long non-coding RNA that is up-regulated in prostate cancer (PCa), affects the proliferation and apoptosis of PCa cells. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying these effects remain largely unknown. In this study, we demonstrated that long non-coding RNA PlncRNA-1, whose expression is promoted by Androgen(More)
The current strategy for diagnosing prostate cancer (PCa) is mainly based on the serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test. However, PSA has low specificity and has led to numerous unnecessary biopsies. We evaluated the effectiveness of urinary metastasis-associated lung adenocarcinoma transcript 1 (MALAT-1), a long noncoding RNA, for predicting the risk(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are important endogenous gene regulators that play key roles in prostate cancer development and metastasis. However, specific miRNA expression patterns in prostate cancer tissues from Chinese patients remain largely unknown. In this study, we compared miRNA expression patterns in 65 pairs of prostate cancer and para-cancer tissues by RNA(More)
OBJECTIVE In recent years, great effort has been made to explore new biomarkers for early detection of prostate cancer. Our previous study has demonstrated the high prevalence of TTTY15-USP9Y in prostate cancer samples from a Chinese population. Our aim was to evaluate the clinical utility of TTTY15-USP9Y in predicting the prostate biopsy outcome. (More)
OBJECTIVES This study aimed to investigate the molecular mechanisms of androgen receptor (AR) in nephrolithiasis. METHODS Human kidney 2(HK-2) cells were transfected with Lentiviruses expressing AR (DEC-AR), shRNA targeting AR (sh-AR) or the empty vector control using the pLEX lentiviral vector system. The expression levels of AR were measured by qRT-PCR(More)
