BACKGROUND: 14-3-3σ protein plays an important role in multiple cellular processes. The role of 14-3-3σ in the progression of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) has not been well understood. OBJECTIVE: We performed this research to explore the relationship between 14-3-3σ level and clinical characteristics and prognosis of ICC patients. Besides, we used ICC cell lines HCCC-9810 and RBE to assess the biological function of 14-3-3σ. METHODS: We examined 14-3-3σ expression in 28 ICC tissues and matched paratumor tissues by quantitative real-time PCR and immunohistochemistry...

BACKGROUND: LAMP2 is one of the major protein components of lysosome. In addition to the expression on the lysosomal membrane, LAMP2 has also been found relocalizing to the cell surface of some highly metastatic tumor cells. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to detect the expression levels of LAMP2 and discuss its roles in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). METHODS: Six hundred and ten tissue samples of ESCC were collected to construct tissue microarrays, which were stained by immunohistochemistry...

BACKGROUND: Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is the highest mortality rate of the genitourinary cancers, and the treatment options are very limited. Thus, identification of molecular mechanisms underlying RCC tumorigenesis, is critical for identifying biomarkers for RCC diagnosis and prognosis. OBJECTIVE: To validate whether the IGF-I/JAK2-STAT3/miR-21 signaling pathway is associated with human RCC cell growth. METHODS: qRT-PCR and Western blotting were used to detect the mRNA and protein expression levels, respectively...

BACKGROUND: Despite the improvement in the diagnosis and the management of laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC), many patients with advanced-stage have poor prognosis in the form of recurrence, metastasis or death. So, recognition of new molecular markers would facilitate the development of targeted therapies. OBJECTIVES: To investigate miR-221 expression in LSCC and its possible correlation to apoptotic protease activating factor-1 (Apaf-1). Also, we aimed to investigate the association between miR-221 and Apaf-1 expressions and the clinicopathological features of LSCC...

The SerpinE2 pathway is evolutionarily conserved and plays an important role in tumorigenesis. SerpinE2 (a small ubiquitin-related modifier), like ubiquitin, conjugates SerpinE2 proteins onto lysine residues of target proteins. SerpinE2 over-expression has been found in several tumors. Here, we detected the level of SerpinE2 in 72 samples of EC tissue using immunohistochemistry to assess the role of SerpinE2 in EC prognosis. Meanwhile, we knocked down SerpinE2 by siRNA in the HTB-111 and Ishikawa EC cell lines and analyzed the viability and mobility change using an MTT assay, an annexin V/PI apoptosis assay, a wound scratch test and a transwell assay...

BACKGROUND: Eph receptors comprise the largest group of the receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) family, and Eph receptors interacting with their ligand ephrins play an important role in development and tumorigenesis. EphB6, a special Eph receptor that lacks tyrosine kinase activity, was reported to be expressed in some human cancers. The clinical significance of EphB6 in gastric carcinoma has not been well investigated. METHODS: In this study, we detected expression of EphB6 protein in four gastric cancer cell lines and a set of gastric carcinoma tissue specimens by using immunohistochemistry...

BACKGROUND: Few reliable blood markers are available for detecting gastric cancer, mainly owing to the heterogeneity of the cancer. OBJECTIVE: To establish gastric cancer diagnostic markers, we evaluated the levels of plasma cadherin 17 (CDH17) and trefoil factor 3 (TFF3), which are secretory proteins and known markers for intestinal metaplasia (IM), in patients with gastric cancer. METHOD: The protein expression level was analyzed in blood plasma samples from 111 gastric cancer patients and 44 healthy individuals, using a sandwich ELISA kit, followed by statistical analyses...

BACKGROUND: Obesity constitutes a risk factor for the development of aggressive forms of prostate cancer. It has been proposed, that prostate cancer has a genetic predisposition and that PPARGC1A and ADIPOQ polymorphisms play a role in the development of this condition. OBJECTIVE: To analyse the association of two PPARGC1A and ADIPOQ polymorphisms as well as their haplotypes, with the development of aggressive prostate cancer in Mexican-Mestizo men with overweight or obesity...

The genetic and epigenetic changes in the tumor suppressor p16 gene is play an important role in the development of cervical cancer. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the expression and promoter methylation of p16 gene in HR-HPV infected squamous cell carcinoma of the uterine cervix. METHODS: To find out p16INK4a expression and methylation status 105 squamous cell carcinoma of the uterine cervix were investigated by using immunohistochemistry and Methylation Specific PCR techniques...

OBJECTIVE: The study aims to evaluate the predictive value of microRNA-143 (miR-143) for the prognosis of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). METHODS: Between October 2010 and October 2012, 131 HCC patients were selected as a case group; meanwhile, 122 healthy controls were enrolled as a control group. The miR-143 expression in serum was detected by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR). These HCC patients were divided into the high miR-143 expression group and the low miR-143 expression group based on the threshold of receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve...

PURPOSE: We evaluate whether the change of heat shock protein 90a (HSP90a) level before and after definitive chemoradiotherapy (CRT) in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) affects tumor response and overall survival (OS). This study aimed to investigate the role of HSP90a reduction ratio after CRT. METHODS: Correlations between pre-CRT HSP90a levels and the tumor response to CRT were analysed. Patients were divided into three groups (Group 1: Serum HSP90a levels pretreatment CRT less than 124 ng/mL; Group 2: pre-CRT HSP90a of 124 ng/mL or more with HSP90a reduction ratio of 65% or more; Group 3: pre-CRT HSP90a of 124 ng/mL or more with HSP90a reduction ratio less than 65%), and their oncologic outcomes were compared...

BACKGROUND: Colorectal cancer (CRC) is known as one of the most leading causes of death from cancer in the world. Wnt signaling pathway is the most important signaling pathway activated in this type of cancer. The low-density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor-related protein-6 (LRP6) functions as a co-receptor in order to trigger this signaling pathway. OBJECTIVE: The expression of LRP6 was studied in cell lines, tumoral and normal adjacent tissues from patients affected with colorectal cancer...

BACKGROUND: HPV-associated oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC) is increasing in incidence. Laboratory assays that identify virally-mediated disease and predict HPV clearance in OPSCC may have important prognostic implications. OBJECTIVE: Here we investigated serum, salivary HPV16 early (E) antibodies before and after definitive chemoradiotherapy (CRT) in patients with locoregionally advanced OPSCC. METHODS: We prospectively measured salivary, serum samples at the beginning of and 6-7 weeks following the completion of CRT in 44 patients...
