[Expression and pathological mechanism of MMP-9 and HIF-2α in CD133(+) lung cancer stem cells].
Suzhou, China. In Zhonghua Yi Xue Za Zhi, Sep 2015
Real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was used for the investigation of expression of tumor metastasis associated genes, including MMP-1, MMP-2, MMP-9, HIF-1α, HIF-1β, HIF-2α and tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase (TIMP)-1, TIMP-2, TIMP-3, TIMP-4.
Signalling in inflammatory skin disease by AP-1 (Fos/Jun).
Madrid, Spain. In Clin Exp Rheumatol, Jul 2015
In this GEMM and in psoriasis patient-derived material, S100A8/A9-dependent C3/CFB complement activation, as well as a miR-21-dependent TIMP-3/TACE pathway leading to TNF-α shedding, plays causal roles in disease development.
MiR-21: an environmental driver of malignant melanoma?
Osnabrück, Germany. In J Transl Med, 2014
MiR-21 is an oncomiR that affects critical target genes of malignant melanoma, resulting in sustained proliferation (PTEN, PI3K, Sprouty, PDCD4, FOXO1, TIPE2, p53, cyclin D1), evasion from apoptosis (FOXO1, FBXO11, APAF1, TIMP3, TIPE2), genetic instability (MSH2, FBXO11, hTERT), increased oxidative stress (FOXO1), angiogenesis (PTEN, HIF1α, TIMP3), invasion and metastasis (APAF1, PTEN, PDCD4, TIMP3).
Endometrial miR-181a and miR-98 expression is altered during transition from normal into cancerous state and target PGR, PGRMC1, CYP19A1, DDX3X, and TIMP3.
Gainesville, United States. In J Clin Endocrinol Metab, 2012
miR-98 and miR-181a through their regulatory functions on PGRMC1, PGR, CYP19A1, TIMP3, and DDX3X expression may influence a wide range of endometrial cellular activities during normal menstrual cycle and transition into disease states.
Quantitative methylation-specific polymerase chain reaction gene patterns in urine sediment distinguish prostate cancer patients from control subjects.
Baltimore, United States. In J Clin Oncol, 2005
PATIENTS AND METHODS: We tested urine sediment DNA for aberrant methylation of nine gene promoters (p16INK4a, p14(ARF), MGMT, GSTP1, RARbeta2, CDH1 [E-cadherin], TIMP3, Rassf1A, and APC) from 52 patients with prostate cancer and 21 matched primary tumors by quantitative fluorogenic real-time polymerase chain reaction.
