Cancer cell reprogramming to identify the genes competent for generating liver cancer stem cells

The cancer stem cell (CSC) hypothesis postulates that cancer originates from the malignant transformation of stem/progenitor cells and is considered to apply to many cancers, including liver cancer. Identification that CSCs are responsible for drug resistance, metastasis, and secondary tumor appearance suggests that these populations are novel obligatory targets for the treatment...

Areca Nut Induces miR-23a and Inhibits Repair of DNA Double-Strand Breaks by Targeting FANCG

Previous investigations have shown that areca nut extracts (ANE) or arecoline (ARE) causes DNA damage, which in turn contributes to oral cell carcinogenesis. To understand the role of microRNA (miRNA) in ANE-associated carcinogenesis, miRNA expression profile was examined in ANE-treated normal human oral fibroblasts. Among the miRNAs changed by ANE exposure, we found that ANE...

Epstein-Barr virus nuclear antigen 2 disrupts mitotic checkpoint and causes chromosomal instability

The Epstein-Barr virus nuclear antigen 2 (EBNA2) plays a key role in transformation of B-lymphocytes mediated by Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and can induce tumor formation in transgenic mice. However, the precise mechanism underlying EBNA2-mediated tumorigenesis remains elusive. Here, we report that EBNA2 can compromise mitotic spindle checkpoint (MSC) induced by the spindle...
