Silencing Op18/stathmin by RNA Interference Promotes the Sensitivity of Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma Cells to Taxol and High-Grade Differentiation of Xenografted Tumours in Nude Mice.

Abstract

Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is a refractory tumour, and chemotherapy is one of the primary treatment modalities. Oncoprotein 18 (Op18)/stathmin is a conserved small cytosolic phosphoprotein and highly expressed in tumours, which plays a vital role in maintaining the malignant phenotype of tumours. Taxol is a clinically widely used chemotherapeutic agent… (More)
