Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is among the most common malignancies, but little is known about its spatial intratumoral heterogeneity (ITH) and temporal clonal evolutionary processes. To address this, we performed multiregion whole-exome sequencing on 51 tumor regions from 13 ESCC cases and multiregion global methylation profiling for 3 of these 13 cases. We found an average of 35.8% heterogeneous somatic mutations with strong evidence of ITH. Half of the driver mutations located on the branches of tumor phylogenetic trees targeted oncogenes, including PIK3CA, NFE2L2 and MTOR, among others...

The zinc-finger transcription factor Snail1 is inappropriately expressed in breast cancer and associated with poor prognosis. While interrogating human databases, we uncovered marked decreases in relapse-free survival of breast cancer patients expressing high Snail1 levels in tandem with wild-type, but not mutant, p53. Using a Snail1 conditional knockout model of mouse breast cancer that maintains wild-type p53, we find that Snail1 plays an essential role in tumour progression by controlling the expansion and activity of tumour-initiating cells in preneoplastic glands and established tumours, whereas it is not required for normal mammary development...

Prostate carcinoma is a devastating disease which is characterized by insidious early symptoms, rapid progression and a poor prognosis. Tripartite motif-containing protein 16 (TRIM16) was identified as an estrogen- and antiestrogen-regulated gene in epithelial cells stably expressing estrogen receptors. The protein encoded by this gene contains two B-box domains and a coiled-coiled region that are characteristic of the B-box zinc finger protein family. Proteins belonging to this family have been reported to be involved in a variety of biological processes including cell growth, differentiation and pathogenesis...

Negative-SET behavior is observed in various cation-based memories, which degrades the device reliability. Transmission electron microscopy results demonstrate the behavior is caused by the overgrowth of the conductive filament (CF) into the Pt electrode. The CF overgrowth phenomenon is suppressed and the negative-SET behavior is eliminated by inserting an impermeable graphene layer. The graphene-based devices show high reliability and satisfying performance.

Transient receptor potential vanilloid 6 (TRPV6) has been shown to promote caner proliferation in several solid tumors, leading to unfavorable clinical outcomes. Our study aimed to elucidate the clinical significance of TRPV6 in patients with early-stage cervical squamous cell carcinoma (CSCC). The mRNA expression of TRPV6 was measured in 12 paired early-stage CSCC specimens and six cervical carcinoma cell lines using quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR). Western blotting and immunohistochemistry (IHC) were employed to examine the protein expression level of TRPV6 in four paired specimens, 175 paraffin-embedded early-stage CSCC specimens, and 50 normal cervical tissues (NCTs), respectively...

The biological fate of nanocarriers has yet to be fully explored, mainly because of the lack of functional tools like probes to identify integral nanocarriers in the body. Understanding their in vivo fate remains as the bottleneck to the development of nanomedicines. Bioimaging results based on conventional fluorescent or radioactive probes should be judged crucially because images merely reflect bulk signals of an admixture of the nanoparticles and free probes. It is crucial to discriminate between nanocarrier-bound and free signals...

Full-dimensional coupled-channel quantum scattering and quasi-classical trajectory calculations have been carried out and analyzed to unravel the mode specific dynamics in the H2 + SH → H + H2S reaction employing two different accurate neural network representations of an ab initio global potential energy surface at the coupled cluster level. Strong mode selectivity was found and partially rationalized by the sudden vector projection model. Specifically, the vibrational excitation of H2 remarkably enhances the reactivity while its rotational excitation only slightly promotes the reaction...

Metastasis involves epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and mesenchymal-epithelial transition. Ovol2 belongs to the Ovo-like family (Ovol) of evolutionarily conserved zinc-finger transcription factors that regulate gene expression in various differentiation processes. Recent studies have demonstrated that Ovols affect mesenchymal-epithelial transition by inducing the expression of miR-200 in a range of human cancers. Downregulated Ovol2 expression is involved in the invasion and metastasis of breast and prostate cancers, but little is known about its expression and prognostic value in other cancers, including hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC)...
