Non-small cell lung cancer is one of the most common cancers and the leading cause of cancer death worldwide. Genetic variants in regulatory regions of some miRNAs might be involved in non-small cell lung cancer susceptibility and survival. rs12220909 (G/C) genetic polymorphism in miR-4293 has been shown to be associated with decreased risk of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma. However, the influence of rs12220909 genetic variation on non-small cell lung cancer susceptibility has not been reported. In order to evaluate the potential association between miR-4293 rs12220909 and non-small cell lung cancer risk in a Chinese population, we performed a case-control study among 998 non-small cell lung cancer cases and 1471 controls...

Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are defined as a rare subpopulation of undifferentiated cells with biological characteristics that include the capacity for self-renewal, differentiation into various lineages, and tumor initiation. To explore the mechanism of CSCs in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC), we focused on Leucine-rich repeat containing G protein-coupled receptor 5 (Lgr5), a target gene of the Wnt signaling pathway, which has been identified as a marker of intestinal stem cells and shown to be overexpressed in several human malignancies...

The incidence and histological type of esophageal cancer are highly variable depending on geographic location and race/ethnicity. Here we want to determine if racial difference exists in the molecular features of esophageal cancer. We firstly confirmed that the incidence rate of esophagus adenocarcinoma (EA) was higher in Whites than in Asians and Blacks, while the incidence of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) was highest in Asians. Then we compared the genome-wide somatic mutations, methylation, and gene expression to identify differential genes by race...

Cigarette smoking is one of highly risk factors of cervical cancer. Recently nicotine has been reported to increase proliferation and invasion in some smoking related cancers, like non-small cell lung cancer and esophageal squamous cell cancer. However, the effects and mechanisms of nicotine stimulation on cervical cancer cells are not clear. Here, we investigated the effects and mechanisms of nicotine stimulation on HeLa cells in vitro. In our study, we found that nicotine could accelerate HeLa cells migration and invasion, activate PI3K/Akt and NF-κB pathways and increase the expression of Vimentin in vitro...

C4.4A (LYPD3) has been identified as a cancer- and metastasis-associated internalizing cell surface protein that is expressed in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), with particularly high prevalence in the squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) subtype. With the exception of skin keratinocytes and esophageal endothelial cells, C4.4A expression is scarce in normal tissues, presenting an opportunity to selectively treat cancers with a C4.4A-directed antibody-drug conjugate (ADC). We have generated BAY 1129980 (C4.4A-ADC), an ADC consisting of a fully human C4...

Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is often diagnosed at late incurable stage and lacks effective treatment strategy. Bufadienolides are cardiotonic steroids isolated from the skin and parotid venom glands of the toad Bufo bufo gargarizans Cantor with novel anticancer activity. However, there is little information about the effects and action mechanisms of bufadienolides on ESCC cells. In this study, the in vitro and in vivo anti-ESCC activities of bufadienolides, including bufalin (Bu) and arenobufagin (ArBu), were examined and the underlying molecular mechanisms were elucidated...

Interleukin-32 (IL-32) is a novel cytokine involved in inflammation and cancer development. IL-32 gene consists of eight small exons, and IL-32 mRNA has nine alternative spliced isoforms, and was thought to be secreted because it contains an internal signal sequence and lacks a transmembrane region. IL-32 is initially expressed selectively in activated T cells by mitogen and activated NK cells and their expression is strongly augmented by microbes, mitogens, and other cytokines. The IL-32 is induced mainly by pathogens and pro-inflammatory cytokines, but IL-32 is more prominent in immune cells than in non-immune tissues...

BACKGROUND: Claudins are a family of integral membrane proteins and are components of tight junctions (TJs). Many TJ proteins are known to tighten the cell structure and maintain a barrier. Claudin-2 forms gated paracellular channels and allows sodium ions and other small positively charged ions to cross between adjacent cells. Recently, we found that vitamin D receptor (VDR) enhanced Claudin-2 expression in colon and that bile salt receptors VDR and Takeda G-protein coupled receptor5 (TGR5) were highly expressed in esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) and precancerous lesions...

An 80 year-old female presented with ductal breast carcinoma (stage II) three years ago, complained of asthenia and iron-deficiency anemia. No diagnosis was obtained after conventional endoscopy and iron supplements were indicated. Ten months later visible digestive hemorrhage was presented. Upper and lower endoscopy was repeated but non-diagnosis was obtained. Thus, video capsule endoscopy was indicated identifying a stenotic lesion arising in the mucosa of distal jejunum. Histopathological examination revealed a poorly mucinous differentiated signet-ring cell adenocarcinoma with an intense peri-tumoral lymphoid (Crohn´s-like lymphoid reaction) and lympho-vascular infiltration with no nodal metastases (pT3N0;7ª edition TNM classification)...

Tumor necrosis factor α induced protein 3 (TNFAIP3) is a protein that is induced by TNF-mediated NF-κB activation and has a dual function in regulating NF-κB. TNFAIP3 is associated with inflammatory carcinogenesis in many cancer types. However, the clinical significance of TNFAIP3 expression and function in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) has not yet been reported. We examined 149 ESCC tissue specimens to determine the clinical significance of TNFAIP3 by immunohistochemistry. Western blot analyses were used to detect TNFAIP3 expression in TE-1, TE-8, TE-15 and KYSE-70 ESCC cells and in Het-1A, a non-cancerous esophageal cell line...

PURPOSE: Accumulating evidence indicates that factors secreted by cancer epithelial cells shape the tumor microenvironment to promote cancer invasion and metastasis. Recent studies also shed light on alterations of Rab small GTPases-mediated exocytosis in tumorigenesis. However, the mechanisms for Rab-mediated exocytosis in tumor microenvironment remain elusive. We aimed to investigate the interplay between Rab37-mediated exocytosis and tumor microenvironment focusing on endothelial cells motility and angiogenesis...

KIAA1377, of which there are few studies regarding cell biology and neurological diseases, has been found to be significantly amplified in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) with lymph node metastasis compared with ESCC without lymph node metastasis. This suggests that KIAA1377 may play a role in the lymph node metastasis of ESCC. There has, to the best of our knowledge, been no study performed to investigate the role of KIAA1377 in ESCC. In the present study, the expression of KIAA1377 was detected by immunohistochemistry, and its expression was statistically analyzed with clinicopathological parameters, using commercially obtained tissue arrays consisting of 86 cases of ESCC and 79 paired controls...

RAP1B is a small GTPase, which regulates multiple cellular processes. Up-regulation of RAP1B has been observed in several cancer types. Although previous study has shown that miR-518 inhibited the proliferation and invasion of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) cells possibly by targeting RAP1B, the expression pattern and the functions of RAP1B in ESCC are not fully understood. Here, we have fund that the expression of RAP1B was up-regulated in ESCC clinical samples. Gain-of-function and loss-of-function assays demonstrated that RAP1B promoted the growth, migration and metastasis of the ESCC cells...

MicroRNAs (miRs) are small endogenous non-coding RNAs that play a vital role in carcinogenesis. miR-193a-3p has been described in multiple cancers. However, the function of miR-193a-3p in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is still unclear. To explore the role of miR-193a-3p in ESCC, reverse transcription-quantitative polymerase chain reaction was used to evaluate the expression of miR-193a-3p in 48 paired ESCC and adjacent normal tissues. In addition, the impact of miR-193a-3p on cell proliferation, migration and apoptosis were analyzed by 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide assay, wound scratch assay and flow cytometry, respectively...
