  9. Deficiency of monoclonal non-specific suppressor factor beta (MNSFB) promotes pregnancy loss in mice.

    Molecular Reproduction and Development 82(6):475 (2015) PMID 26031240

    Maternal immune tolerance to the semi-allogenic fetus is required for successful pregnancy in mammals. Monoclonal nonspecific suppressor factor beta (MNSFB) is an immunosuppressive factor present in uterine epithelial and stromal cells, as well as in macrophages and T cells. Although the functio...
  10. Steroidal saponins with cytotoxic activity from the rhizomes of Paris polyphylla var. yunnanensis

    Phytochemistry Letters 12:31 (2015)

  11. PKM2 promotes glucose metabolism and cell growth in gliomas through a mechanism involving a let-7a/c-Myc/hnRNPA1 feedback loop.

    Oncotarget 6(15):13006 (2015) PMID 25948776

    Tumor cells metabolize more glucose to lactate in aerobic or hypoxic conditions than non-tumor cells. Pyruvate kinase isoenzyme type M2 (PKM2) is crucial for tumor cell aerobic glycolysis. We established a role for let-7a/c-Myc/hnRNPA1/PKM2 signaling in glioma cell glucose metabolism. PKM2 deple...
