Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide, many miRNAs play critical role in lung cancer initiation and progression. Here, we demonstrated that miR-1254 was upregulated in lung cancer tissues and cells. miR-1254 overexpression promoted lung cancer cell proliferation determined by MTT assay, colony formation assay, soft agar growth ability assay and BrdU incorporation assay, miR-1254 knockdown suppressed lung cancer cell proliferation. Mechanism analysis revealed that Wnt/β-catenin pathway antagonist secreted frizzled related protein 1 (SFRP1) was its target, its expression was opposite to SFRP1 level, and directly bound to the 3'UTR of SFRP1...

BACKGROUND: Two molecular pathways promote the development of colorectal cancer (CRC). One is termed "microsatellite stable" (MSS) whereas the other is characterized by "microsatellite instability" (MSI or MIN). In addition, the CpG island methylation phenotype is known to be an important alteration as a third molecular type. Thus, DNA methylation is thought to provide potential biomarkers for assessment of cancer risk in normal mucosa. In addition, it is also known that colonic location is an important parameter in the development of CRC...

BACKGROUND: Two key issues in prostate cancer (PCa) that demand attention currently are the need for a more precise and minimally invasive screening test owing to the inaccuracy of prostate-specific antigen and differential diagnosis to distinguish advanced vs. indolent cancers. This continues to pose a tremendous challenge in diagnosis and prognosis of PCa and could potentially lead to overdiagnosis and overtreatment complications. Copy number variations (CNVs) in the human genome have been linked to various carcinomas including PCa...

The reciprocal communication between cancer cells and their microenvironment is critical in cancer progression. Although involvement of cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAF) in cancer progression is long established, the molecular mechanisms leading to differentiation of CAFs from normal fibroblasts are poorly understood. Here, we report that kallikrein-related peptidase-4 (KLK4) promotes CAF differentiation. KLK4 is highly expressed in prostate epithelial cells of premalignant (prostatic intra-epithelial neoplasia) and malignant lesions compared to normal prostate epithelia, especially at the peri-stromal interface...

Chronic myeloid leukemia is a clonal myeloproliferative disorder that arises from the neoplastic transformation of the hematopoietic stem cell, in which the Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway has been demonstrated to play an important role in disease progression. However, the role of Wnt signaling antagonists in therapy resistance and disease progression has not been fully investigated. We aimed to study the effects of Wnt/β-catenin pathway antagonists-secreted frizzled-related protein 1 and Wnt inhibitory factor 1-on resistance toward tyrosine kinase inhibitors in chronic myeloid leukemia...

Aging of cardiac stem/progenitor cells (CSCs) impairs heart regeneration and leads to unsatisfactory outcomes of cell-based therapies. As the precise mechanisms underlying CSC aging remain unclear, the use of therapeutic strategies for elderly patients with heart failure is severely delayed. In this study, we used human cardiosphere-derived cells (CDCs), a subtype of CSC found in the postnatal heart, to identify secreted factor(s) associated with CSC aging. Human CDCs were isolated from heart failure patients of various ages (2-83 years old)...

Wnt signal pathway genes are known to be involved with cancer development. Here we tested the hypothesis whether DNA methylation of genes part of the Wnt signaling pathway could help the diagnosis of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The methylation levels of SFRP1, SFRP2, WIF1 and PRKCB in 111 NSCLC patients were evaluated by quantitative methylation-specific PCR (qMSP). Promoter methylation levels of four candidate genes were significantly higher in tumor tissues compared with the adjacent tissues. SFRP1, SFRP2 and PRKCB genes were all shown to be good predictors of NSCLC risk (SFRP1: AUC = 0...

Epidemiological studies have convincingly suggested that obesity is an important risk factor for postmenopausal breast cancer, but the mechanisms responsible for this relationship are still not fully understood. We hypothesize that obesity creates a low-grade inflammatory microenvironment, which stimulates Wnt-signaling and thereby promotes the development of breast cancer. To test this hypothesis, we evaluated the correlations between expression of multiple inflammatory cytokines and Wnt pathway downstream genes in mammary tissues from women (age ≥ 50) undergoing reduction mammoplasty...

Glioblastoma multiforme is a type of central nervous system tumor with extremely poor prognosis. Previously, hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), which promotes the oxidative stress response, has been reported to induce the apoptosis of glioma cells. Recently, secreted frizzled-related protein 1 (SFRP1) has been shown to be associated with various types of malignant tumors and with H2O2-induced oxidative stress in cardiomyocytes by negatively regulating the Wnt signaling pathway. This study aimed to explore SFRP1 expression and its roles in H2O2-induced apoptosis in human glioma cells...
