CRIP1 promotes cell migration, invasion and epithelial-mesenchymal transition of cervical cancer by activating the Wnt/β‑catenin signaling pathway

Publication date: 15 August 2018Source: Life Sciences, Volume 207Author(s): Lan-Zhi Zhang, Li-Yan Huang, An-Liang Huang, Jin-Xing Liu, Fan YangAbstractCervical cancer (CC) is the third most common cancer and the fourth leading cause of malignancy-related mortality in women worldwide. In addition, epithelial–mesenchymal transition (EMT) has been generally studied in tumor metastasis researches in recent years. Cysteine-rich intestinal protein 1 (CRIP1) is differently expressed in human cancer cells. However, the role it plays in CC has not been revealed at present. Preliminary experiments have shown that CRIP1 had a higher expression in CC tissues, compared with adjacent noncancerous tissues. Real-time PCR and western blot were performed to analyze CRIP1 expression in CC cell lines. CRIP1 transient transfection vector and siRNA were constructed. Further analysis revealed the promotion effects of CRIP1 on the cell migration and invasion of CC in vitro (P

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe consequence of treatment for gynaecological cancers can cause sudden onset of intense menopausal symptoms, such as vasomotor symptoms, sexual dysfunction and emotional instability. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is often effective and can overcome these unpleasant and severe symptoms. However, data regarding its safety remains controversial. The big question therefore is whether HRT in gynaecological cancer survivors is possible. This is due to the fear of disease relapse. So, the purpose of this study was to review the evidence regarding cancer recurrence or death following use of HRT in su...

CONCLUSIONS: LncRNA SNHG14 was highly expressed in cervical tumor tissues or cells, which could promote the progression of cervical cancer. Furthermore, SNHG14 might be associated with the activation of the JAK-STAT pathway. PMID: 31114991 [PubMed - in process]

This study is an important step forward in highlighting C1q as a new prognostic candidate biomarker for a range of carcinomas. Methods Oncomine Database Analysis The expression levels of C1QA, C1QB, and C1QC genes in various carcinomas were analyzed using Oncomine (, a cancer microarray database and web-based data mining platform from genome-wide expression analyses (22, 23). We compared the differences in mRNA level between normal tissue and carcinoma. The mRNA expression levels in neoplastic tissues compared to the healthy tissues were obtained as the parameters of p-value 2, and gene ranking in the t...

Conclusion MTDH is pro-oncogenic factor playing multifaceted and diverse roles in cancer progression. Its association and central role in regulating signaling pathways such a MAPK, wnt/β-catenin, PI3K/AkT, NF-κβ pathways in various cancers shows that it plays a vital role in metastasis. MTDH contribution to chemo and radiotherapy resistance provides a new direction for the development of anticancer therapeutics. Multiple mechanisms converge to promote expression of MTDH in cancers. Further studies are therefore warranted to determine whether the elevated MTDH expression has prognostic value for development...
