Abstract Two highly selective OFF-ON isomer fluorescent probes (1 and 2) for homo-/cysteine were designed and synthesized. The pyrene modified tetraphenylethylene derivative with AIE was used as luminescent group while maleimide was used as recognition group. These two isomer probes were found to be nearly nonfluorescent when treated with GSH. However, upon interaction with Cys or Hcy, the fluorescence was enhanced by 2000 folds in a wide pH range from 3 to 10. Experimental results and DFT calculation have demonstrated that the fluorescence OFF-ON switch of such thiol probes is resulted from the termination of the...

vac D Abstract Metabolomics generate a profile of small molecules from plant extracts, which could be directly responsible for bioactivity effects. Using dry-column flash chromatography enabled a rapid and inexpensive method for the very efficient separation of plant extract with a high resolution. This separation method coupled to NMR and FTIR-based metabolomics is applied to identify bioactive natural products. OPLS multivariate analysis method, was used for correlation the chemical composition of the plant extracts, Amphoricarpos autariatus, with the results of cytotoxic activity against Human cervical adenocar...

Abstract Cancer is one of the most widespread challenges and important diseases, which has the highest mortality rate. Lung cancer is the most common type of cancer, so that about 25% of all cancer deaths are related to the lung cancer. The lung cancer is classified as two different types with different treatment methodology: the small cell lung carcinoma and nonsmall cell lung carcinoma are two categories of the lung cancer. Since the lung cancer is often in the latent period in its early stages, therefore, early diagnosis of lung cancer has many challenges. Hence, there is a need for sensitive and reliable tools...

This week, I sat, enthralled in a darkened movie theater watching a story unfold. Before the first scene, the line, “Based on an actual lie,” ran across the screen. The film is called The Farewell and is the story of the lung cancer diagnosis of the filmmaker’s grandmother. Lulu Wang is the director for whom art imitates life. Her alter ego is Billi, played by the actress and rapper Akwafina. Billi adores her Nai Nai (Chinese for grandmother), who assisted in raising her when her parents immigrated to the U.S. when she was a child. She discovers that her grandmother was diagnosed with end stage lung cance...

LncRNA AWPPH participates in the metastasis of non-small cell lung cancer by upregulating TGF-β1 expression. Oncol Lett. 2019 Oct;18(4):4246-4252 Authors: Huo Y, Li A, Wang Z Abstract Long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) AWPPH is a characterized oncogenic lncRNA in hepatocellular carcinoma and bladder cancer. The aim of the present study was to investigate the potential involvement of AWPPH in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Expression of AWPPH in lung biopsy tissues and serum of both healthy controls and patients with NSCLC with different tumor sizes, and with and without distant tumor metastasis was...

Authors: Ren H, Hu Y, Xie T, Jin C, Hu Y, Yang B Abstract Changes of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and cytokeratin fragment antigen 21-1 (CYFRA21-1) in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) before and after gefitinib treatment were observed to explore the significance of such changes. A total of 175 patients with advanced NSCLC who were admitted to Hubei Cancer Hospital from July 2012 to October 2015 were collected and divided into two groups: the control group (85 patients who received conventional chemotherapy) and the experimental group (90 patients treated with gefitinib combined w...

Authors: Zeng, Lin H, Cui J, Liang W Abstract Thymocyte selection-associated high mobility group box (TOX) genes represent a novel family of genes. Deregulated expression of TOXs has been reported in a variety of cancer types, including lung cancer. It has also been reported that TOXs are crucial regulators of the immune system. The present study systematically evaluated the prognostic values of TOX family members using a set of publicly accessible databases, including Oncomine, Kaplan-Meier plotter and cBioPortal. It was revealed that TOX expression profiles differed between lung cancer and normal tissues, and hig...

The objective of the present study was to investigate the effects of high-LET carbon ions and low-LET X-rays on the expression of VEGF and MMPs, and to identify the associated mechanisms in the Tca8113 TSCC cell line. Tca8113 cells were irradiated with carbon ions or X-rays at doses of 1 and 4 Gy. An immunofluorescence assay indicated that VEGF expression was notably decreased at 24 and 48 h after heavy ion irradiation compared with irradiation with conventional X-rays. The expression of MMP-2 and MMP-9 also decreased in a dose-dependent manner following heavy ion irradiation. These findings indicate that compared with low...

lncRNA MIR4435-2HG promotes cancer cell migration and invasion in prostate carcinoma by upregulating TGF-β1. Oncol Lett. 2019 Oct;18(4):4016-4021 Authors: Zhang H, Meng H, Huang X, Tong W, Liang X, Li J, Zhang C, Chen M Abstract The long noncoding (lnc) RNA MIR4435-2HG is known to promote lung cancer; however, its role in prostate carcinoma (PCa) remains unknown. The aim of the current study was therefore to investigate the role of MIR4435-2HG in PCa by detecting differential gene expression using quantitative PCR and ELISA kits. Furthermore, overexpression experiments were performed to analyze ge...
