Cytokeratins are thought to play a role in apoptosis. Cytokeratin 18 (CK18) is involved in the formation of intracellular cytoskeleton, and has been considered a promising apoptosis marker in gastrointestinal carcinomas. Growth factors, including hepatocyte growth factor (HGF), may provide a microenvironment for malignant cells. In this study, we aimed to compare serum HGF and CK18 levels between esophageal squamous cell carcinoma patients and healthy controls.

Association between a microRNA-214 binding site polymorphism in the methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase gene and esophageal squamous cell carcinoma

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are key regulators of gene expression and play an important role in the development and progression of various diseases including esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). In this study, we determined whether a polymorphism at the miR-214 binding site in the 3'-untranslated region (3'-UTR) of the methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase gene (MTHFR) is associated with susceptibility to ESCC. A total of 448 ESCC cases and 460 gender- and age-matched subjects were recruited for the study.

Clinical significance of microRNA-34a in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma

X. Lin, Xu, X. Y., Chen, Q. S., and Huang, C., Clinical significance of microRNA-34a in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma, vol. 14, pp. 17684-17691, 2015.

MicroRNA-34a (miR-34a) has been found to be downregulated in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) tissues compared with that in normal tissues (P
