In parallel with the inconsistency in observational studies and chemoprevention trials, the mechanisms by which selenium affects prostate cancer risk have not been elucidated. We conducted a randomized, placebo-controlled trial to examine the effects of a short-term intervention with selenium on gene expression in non-malignant prostate tissue.
In this study, we have characterized the role of annexin A1 (ANXA1) in the acquisition and maintenance of stem-like/aggressive features in prostate cancer (PCa) cells comparing zoledronic acid (ZA)-resistant DU145R80 with their parental DU145 cells.
C-Met tyrosine kinase receptor plays an important role under normal and pathological conditions. In tumor cells' overexpression or incorrect activation of c-Met, this leads to stimulation of proliferation, survival and increase of motile activity.
Kruppel like factor 4 (KLF4), a transcription factor associated with carcinogenesis and tumor progression, plays an important role in various malignancies. In the present study, we utilized the CRISPR-ON system to upregulate KLF4 expression level and subsequently investigated the effect and mechanism of KLF4 in the carcinogenesis and progression of urothelial bladder cancer (UBC).
Metastasis is the primary cause of death in renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Loss of cell-to-cell adhesion, including tight junctions (TJs) is the initial step in the process of metastasis. Claudin-7 (CLDN7) is a major component of TJs.
High-grade Bladder Cancer (BLCA) represents the most aggressive and treatment-resistant cancer that renders the patients with poor survival. However, only a few biomarkers have been identified for the detection and treatment of BLCA.
The gastrin-releasing peptide receptor (GRPr) is upregulated in early and late-stage human prostate cancer (PCa) and other solid tumors of the mammary gland, lung, head and neck, colon, uterus, ovary, and kidney.
To investigate the expression pattern of a novel long non-coding ribonucleic acid activated by transforming growth factor β, long non-coding ribonucleic acid activated by transforming growth factor β, in renal cell carcinoma tissues among the patients with various clinicopathologic features and to detect the possible role of dysregulated long non-coding RNA-ATB in renal cell carcinoma.
There is a considerable need to identify those individuals with prostate cancer who have indolent disease. We propose that genes that control adult stem cell homeostasis in organs with slow turnover, such as the prostate, control cancer fate.
Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been identified to have more and more important roles in tumorigenesis and may be novel biomarker for cancer therapy. LncRNA TP73-AS1 is a novel identified lncRNA that has been demonstrated to be increased in several cancers, however, its function in bladder cancer remains unknown.
Bladder cancer (BC) is the ninth most common malignant disease and ranks fourteenth in cancer mortality worldwide. Moreover, among cancers, the incidence and mortality of BC in males increased to the 6th and 9th place, respectively.
Accumulating evidence has indicated that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are critically involved in tumor progression. In current study, we reported a novel lncRNA signature correlated with bladder cancer development.
Background: Monocarboxylate transporter isoform 1 (MCT1) is an important molecule in mediating lactate transportation. Recent studies have shown an oncogenic role of MCT1 in cancer development. Methods: In this study, we aimed to investigate the expression and role of MCT1 in bladder cancer (BCa).
Dysregulation of miR-514a-3p has been reported in multiple human malignancies. However, its biological function and molecular mechanisms in renal cell cancer (RCC) remain unclear. The aims of this study were to explore the role of miR-514a-3p and its potential mechanism in human RCC.
Neuron-derived neurotrophic factor (NDNF) is a glycosylated, disulfide-bonded secretory protein that contains a fibronectin type III domain. NDNF has been identified as a neurotrophic factor; however, its role in carcinogenesis has not yet been identified.
Clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) is one of the most common malignant tumors of the urinary system and has a poor response to radiotherapy and chemotherapy. To date, it is urgent to find effective biomarkers for the prevention and treatment of ccRCC.
NR6A1/CT150, as an orphan receptor, is a novel member of the cancer-testis (CT) antigen family. Here, we investigated the expression and function of NR6A1 and its underlying mechanisms in prostate cancer (PCa) patients who underwent radical prostatectomy.
More men die with prostate cancer (PCa) than from it. However, once PCa is no longer organ-confined, it is associated with significant mortality. Epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) is one mechanism facilitating progression in cancer.
The roles of non-coding RNAs in controlling clinical and biological heterogeneity in bladder cancer remain unclear. We used TCGA's published dataset (n = 405 tumors) as a discovery cohort and created a new validation cohort to define the miRNA expression patterns in the basal and luminal molecular subtypes of muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC).
The rapid development of the cancer stem cells (CSC) field, together with powerful genome-wide screening techniques, have provided the basis for the development of future alternative and reliable therapies aimed at targeting tumor-initiating cell populations.
