Long non‑coding RNA NNT‑AS1 knockdown represses the progression of gastric cancer via modulating the miR‑142‑5p/SOX4/Wnt/β‑catenin signaling pathway. Mol Med Rep. 2020 May 18;: Authors: Zhang J, Zhang K, Hou Y Abstract Patients with advanced gastric cancer (GC) have a poor prognosis with a median overall survival of 10‑12 months. Long non‑coding RNA nicotinamide nucleotide transhydrogenase‑antisense RNA1 (NNT‑AS1) and sex‑determining region Y‑related high mobility group box 4 (SOX4) have been reported to be associated with the progression of various types of cancer; howe...

Mild microwave ablation combined with HSP90 and TGF‑β1 inhibitors enhances the therapeutic effect on osteosarcoma. Mol Med Rep. 2020 May 22;: Authors: Chen L, Wang M, Lin Z, Yao M, Wang W, Cheng S, Li B, Zhang Y, Yin Q Abstract Osteosarcoma is the most common malignant bone tumour and the second leading cause of cancer‑related death in children and adolescents. Microwave ablation has an excellent therapeutic effect on bone tumours by instantaneously increasing the temperature in the tumour; however, there is a risk of damaging the surrounding healthy tissues by exposure to a high temperature w...

Authors: Che J, Wu P, Wang G, Yao X, Zheng J, Guo C Abstract The aim of the present study was to investigate the expression of spalt like transcription factor 4 (SALL4) in the three most common types of renal cell carcinomas (RCC) [clear cell RCC (ccRCC), papillary renal cell carcinoma (pRCC) and chromophobe RCC (chRCC)], and the association with the overall survival (OS) of patients. The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) database and RCC samples were used to investigate the expression levels of the SALL4 gene and its association with the OS in the three types of RCC based on the analysis of the transcriptome, copy number...

Knockdown of ubiquitin‑specific protease 51 attenuates cisplatin resistance in lung cancer through ubiquitination of zinc‑finger E‑box binding homeobox 1. Mol Med Rep. 2020 May 27;: Authors: Zhou F, Du C, Xu D, Lu J, Zhou L, Wu C, Wu B, Huang J Abstract Lung cancer is a devastating cancer with high morbidity and mortality. Ubiquitin‑specific protease (USP) is a type of deubiquitinating enzyme (DUB) that has been implicated in numerous cancers, including colorectal, myeloma and breast. In the present study, the expression of USP51 was determined in the lung cancer cell line A549 and cisplatin (a...

c‑Abl‑mediated tyrosine phosphorylation of DNA damage response proteins and implications in important cellular functions (Review). Mol Med Rep. 2020 May 18;: Authors: Bohio AA, Wang R, Zeng X, Ba X Abstract Tyrosine phosphorylation is an essential post‑translational protein modification catalyzed by tyrosine kinases. c‑Abl is a crucial non‑receptor tyrosine kinase, which is most commonly activated by auto‑phosphorylation, DNA damage and by interacting with other protein kinases. DNA damage response (DDR) proteins stimulated by DNA lesions or chromatin alterations recruit the DNA repair and ...

In conclusion, TCGA classification based on a Chinese population is the same as TCGA typing based on a European population in terms of proportion and clinical characteristics, but there are differences in gene amplification and gene mutation. ACRG molecular classification could be performed by IHC analysis and may be a valuable independent prognostic marker for patients with GC. PMID: 32468041 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Hu D, Zhang B, Yu M, Shi W, Zhang L Abstract Colorectal cancer is one of the commoner digestive tract malignant tumor types, and its incidence and mortality rate are high. Accumulating evidence indicates that long‑chain non‑coding RNAs (lncRNAs) and protein‑coding RNAs interact with each other by competing with the same micro(mi)RNA response element (MREs) and serve an important role in the regulation of gene expression in a variety of tumor types. However, the regulatory mechanism and prognostic role of lncRNA‑mediated competing endogenous (ce)RNA networks in colon cancer have yet to be elucidated...

Authors: Zhang S, Yang Y, Hua Y, Hu C, Zhong Y Abstract Colorectal cancer is a digestive tract malignancy and the third leading cause of cancer‑related mortality worldwide. Norcantharidin (NCTD), the demethylated form of cantharidin, has been reported to possess anticancer properties. Family‑with‑sequence‑similarity‑46c (Fam46c), a non‑canonical poly(A) polymerase, has been reported to be critical in NCTD‑mediated effects in numerous types of cancer, including hepatoma. In the current study, it was found that Fam46c expression was reduced in colorectal cancer tissues and cells. Treatment with NCTD was...

Effect of AGER on the biological behavior of non‑small cell lung cancer H1299 cells. Mol Med Rep. 2020 May 22;: Authors: Wang Q, Zhu W, Xiao G, Ding M, Chang J, Liao H Abstract Advanced glycosylation end-product specific receptor (AGER) is a multi-ligand cell surface receptor abnormally expressed in lung cancer, and is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily. Therefore, this study aimed to explore the effect of AGER on the biological behavior of non‑small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) H1299 cell line. A microarray‑based gene expression profiling analysis of the GSE27262 dataset from the Gene Expres...
