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

In the present study, the authors hypothesised that disturbed heterogeneity of microbial flora was associated with HPV-induced carcinogenesis. Swabs of the cervical microbiota were collected from 250 women and the 16S ribosomal DNA was sequenced using a high throughput assay. The swabs of cervical microbiota were grouped according to the community state types (C...

Abstract Since their discovery as the etiologic agents of cervical cancer in the mid-1970s, human papillomaviruses (HPVs) have been linked with a growing number of epithelial-derived tumors, including head and neck squamous cell carcinomas. HPV demonstrates a particular predilection for causing tumors of the oropharynx, with the majority of cases involving infection with high-oncogenic risk HPV-16. People living with HIV are at increased risk of infection with HPV- and HPV-related oral complications even with adequate control of their HIV infection with antiretroviral therapy. In this chapter, we discuss the molec...

Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are potentially critical regulators of cancer malignant behaviours. Aberrant expression and dysfunction of lncRNA PVT1 have been reported in multiple human cancers. However, its role in squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN) remains largely unknown. Our current study demonstrated that PVT1 expression was increased in SCCHN. High PVT1 expression was positively correlated with SCCHN clinical parameters including T classification, clinical stages and cervical lymph node metastasis. More importantly, high PVT1 expression predicted a poor prognosis in SCCHN patients. Gain-of function...

Conclusions/Discussion: These findings support the concept that cellular therapy can mediate the regression of epithelial cancers, and they suggest the importance of predictive biomarkers and novel treatment platforms for more effective therapies. PMID: 30518633 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In this study, we describe a Litopenaeus vannamei hemocyanin-derived peptide, denoted B11, which shares similar features with other anticancer peptides and attenuates the proliferation of cancer cells. Cell viability assay revealed that B11 significantly inhibited the proliferation of human cervical (HeLa), human hepatocellular carcinoma (HepG2), and human esophageal cancer (EC109) cancer cell lines, but not normal liver cell lines (T-antigen-immortalized human liver epithelial (THLE) cells or THLE-3), by inducing morphological changes, nuclear condensation, and margination, features which are indicative of apoptosis. Besi...

In conclusion, we demonstrated that GPNMB contributed to the tumorigenesis of cervical cancer, at least in part, by regulating MMP-2/MMP-9 activity in tumor cells via activation of canonical Wnt/β-catenin signaling. This might be a potential therapeutic target for treating human cervical cancer. PMID: 30484490 [PubMed - in process]

This study is the culmination of a decade of research that has repeatedly demonstrated that this vaccine can effectively and safely target in animal models what we think may cause Alzheimer's disease. I believe we're getting close to testing this therapy in people." Although earlier research established that antibodies significantly reduce amyloid buildup in the brain, researchers needed to find a safe way to introduce them into the body. A vaccine developed elsewhere showed promise in the early 2000s, but when tested in humans, it caused brain swelling in some patients. The new idea was to start with DNA codin...
