Supporting her as the situation changes: A qualitative study of spousal support strategies for patients with breast cancer in China.

Li Gao, Jun-E Liu, Xue-Ping Zhou, Ya-Li Su, Pi-Lin Wang,

OBJECTIVE:Spouses who are the major source of social support for married breast cancer patients sometimes do not know how to support the patient effectively. This study aimed to investigate the experiences and strategies of spouses identified as supportive for patients throughout the disease. METHODS:A qualitative study using semi-structured in-depth interviews ... Read more >>

Posttraumatic growth and psychological distress in Chinese early-stage breast cancer survivors: a longitudinal study.

Jun-E Liu, Hui-Ying Wang, Mu-Lan Wang, Ya-Li Su, Pi-Lin Wang,

OBJECTIVE:To describe the dynamic changes in posttraumatic growth (PTG) and psychological distress in hospitalized early-stage breast cancer (BC) survivors over a 6-month period. METHODS:A longitudinal study design was adopted. The PTG inventory (PTGI) and distress management screening measure were used 3 months after diagnosis, then again at 6 and 9 ... Read more >>

Knockdown of radixin by RNA interference suppresses the growth of human pancreatic cancer cells in vitro and in vivo.

Shu-Dong Chen, Mao-Min Song, Zhi-Qiang Zhong, Na Li, Pi-Lin Wang, Shi Cheng, Ri-Xing Bai, Hui-Sheng Yuan,

Radixin, encoded by a gene on chromosome 11, plays important roles in cell motility, invasion and tumor progression. However, its function in pancreatic cancer remains elusive. In this study, radixin gene expression was suppressed with a lentivirus-mediated short-hairpin RNA (shRNA) method. We found that radixin shRNA caused down-regulation of radixin ... Read more >>

Functional and molecular interactions between Rac1 and FE65.

Pi-Lin Wang, Tetsuhiro Niidome, Toshiaki Kume, Akinori Akaike, Takeshi Kihara, Hachiro Sugimoto,

FE65 is reported to act as an adaptor protein with several protein-interaction domains, including one WW domain and two phosphotyrosine interaction/binding domains. Through these binding domains, FE65 was considered to recruit various binding partners together to form functional complexes in a certain cellular compartment. In this study, we demonstrated that ...

Suppression of matrix metalloproteinase-2 via RNA interference inhibits pancreatic carcinoma cell invasiveness and adhesion.

Ying-Hui Zhi, Mao-Min Song, Pi-Lin Wang, Tie Zhang, Zi-Yi Yin,

AIM:To investigate the inhibitory effects of RNA interference (RNAi) on expression of matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2) gene and invasiveness and adhesion of human pancreatic cancer cell line, BxPC-3. METHODS:RNAi was performed using the vector (pGPU6)-based small interference RNA (siRNA) plasmid gene silence system to specifically knock down MMP-2 expression in pancreatic ... Read more >>

Rac1 inhibition negatively regulates transcriptional activity of the amyloid precursor protein gene.

Pi-Lin Wang, Tetsuhiro Niidome, Akinori Akaike, Takeshi Kihara, Hachiro Sugimoto,

Rac1, a member of the Rho family GTPases, participates in a variety of cellular functions including lamellipodia formation, actin cytoskeleton organization, cell growth, apoptosis, and neuronal development. Recent studies have implicated Rac1 in cytoskeletal abnormalities, production of reactive oxygen species, and generation of the amyloid beta-peptide (Abeta) observed in Alzheimer's ... Read more >>

Non-fibrillar amyloid-beta peptide reduces NMDA-induced neurotoxicity, but not AMPA-induced neurotoxicity.

Tetsuhiro Niidome, Yasuaki Goto, Masaru Kato, Pi-Lin Wang, Saori Goh, Naoki Tanaka, Akinori Akaike, Takeshi Kihara, Hachiro Sugimoto,

Amyloid-beta peptide (Abeta) is thought to be linked to the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease. Recent studies suggest that Abeta has important physiological roles in addition to its pathological roles. We recently demonstrated that Abeta42 protects hippocampal neurons from glutamate-induced neurotoxicity, but the relationship between Abeta42 assemblies and their neuroprotective effects ...

Structural analysis of cDNAs coding for 4SNc-Tudor domain protein from fish and their expression in yellowtail organs.

Shunnosuke Abe, Pi-Lin Wang, Fuminori Takahashi, Eiji Sasaki,

We cloned complementary DNAs for 4SNc-Tudor protein (SN4TDR) from yellowtail (Seriola quinqueradiata), torafugu (Takifugu rubripes), and zebrafish (Danio rerio). This protein contains 4 staphylococcal nuclease domains at the N terminus followed by a Tudor domain. We also identified the 4SNc-Tudor proteins highly homologous to that in yellowtail from the Takifugu ... Read more >>
