MiR-216a-5p targets TCTN1 to inhibit cell proliferation and induce apoptosis in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.

Conclusions: Our results demonstrate that miR-216a-5p might serve as a tumor suppressor in ESCC cells through negatively regulating TCTN1 expression, indicating the possibility that miR-216a-5p and TCTN1 might be attractive targets for ESCC therapeutic intervention.

Herein, an enzyme-free surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) platform was proposed for sensitive and reliable detection of target miRNA-21 using a corrective internal standard (IS)-based ratiometric SERS probe coupled with mismatched catalytic hairpin assembly (CHA) amplification....

Therefore, we have developed a novel electrochemical sensor to determine IMQ, for the first time. A glassy carbon electrode (GCE) was modified by a new composite comprising of ionic liquid-based molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) and gold nanoparticles/graphene oxide (Au/GO). The MIP/Au/GO nanocomposite was synthesized through non-covalent imprinting ...

Publication date: Available online 23 August 2019Source: MethodsAuthor(s): Jianji Chen, Cari Sagum, Mark T BedfordAbstractSignal transduction is driven by protein interactions that are controlled by posttranslational modifications (PTM). Usually, protein domains are responsible for “reading” the PTM signal deposited on the interacting partners. Protein domain microarrays have been developed as a high throughput platform to facilitate the rapid identification of protein-protein interactions, and this approach has become broadly used in biomedical research. In this review, we will summarize the history, developme...

This study was done by collecting wild PU and cultivated PU and compared with a counterfeit which is commonly found in the market. Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) and Two-Dimension Infrared (2DIR) for the qualitative analysis are often regarded as green methods because the original resources of the test sample are preserved. The different spectral patterns of the counterfeit PU compared with the genuine PU were clearly indicated in 1D FTIR spectrum. The 2DIR spectrum of counterfeit PU showed more than 70% dissimilarity compared to genuine PU. This rapid and simple sample preparation enhances the speed of qualitative anal...

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 (www.oncomine.org), 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...

This study aimed to investigate whether combining anti-PD-L1 Atezolizumab with BEV may have a synergistic effect and enhance the efficacy of both treatments in cisplatin resistant epithelial ovarian cancer (CREOC). We retrospectively analyzed 124 epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) patients from Gynecologic Oncology Department of Tianjin Cancer Hospital between January 2013 and June 2018, who all were diagnosed with cisplatin resistance due to progressing

Yi He†, Wenyong Long† and Qing Liu* Department of Neurosurgery, Xiangya Hospital, Central South University, Changsha, China Super-enhancers (SEs) refer to large clusters of enhancers that drive gene expressions. Recent data has provided novel insights in elucidating the roles of SEs in many diseases, including cancer. Many mechanisms involved in tumorigenesis and progression, ranging from internal gene mutation and rearrangement to external damage and inducement, have been demonstrated to be highly associated with SEs. Moreover, translocation, formation, deletion, or duplication of SEs themselves co...
