Article: Expression and clinical significance of antiapoptotic gene (survivin) in NB4 and acute promyelocytic leukemia cells.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: To study survivin gene expression in APL cells and to explore its correlation with clinical manifestations. PML/RARα and survivin mRNA expression were analysed using RT-PCR. By treatment of ATRA, the survivin mRNA expression in NB4 cells gradually decreased with time and was almost undetectable in the 72th hour. Survivin was expressed in 67% of the 36 APL cases (de novo and relapse patients) with PML/RARα fusion gene expression. However, in 22 cases of remission stage patients without PML/RARα fusion gene expression, survivin was expressed in 36%. The survivin mRNA expression positive rate in de novo and relapse groups, and PML/RARα fusion gene L-type positive groups, was obviously higher than those in remission period groups and was significantly lower than those in acute leukemia groups. In 36 cases of de novo and relapse APL patients, all cases could obtain complete remission, irrespective of the survivin expression. APL patients expressed with survivin mRNA had DIC and serious infection (one patient died). The clinical symptom included slight skin or mucosa bleeding, fever, and asthenic for patients without the survivin mRNA expression. Later, two cases of APL patients with the survivin mRNA expression were treated by ATRA, induction differentiation sign in their peripheral blood and bone marrow figure was not obvious. It was concluded that the survive gene expression was lower in APL than those in any other types of leukemia, thus closely associated with clinical manifestation.TheScientificWorldJOURNAL 01/2012; 2012:937087. · 1.66 Impact Factor
Article: [Predicating the sensibility of patients with multiple myeloma to glucocorticoid by cochaperone P23].[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: This study was aimed to investigate the sensitive index for predicting the sensitivity of patients with multiple myeloma (MM) to glucocorticoid (GC). MM1.S, MM1.R cell lines and 10 MM patients sensitive or non-sensitive to GC were enrolled in this study. The expression of heat shock protein 90 (HSP90) and P23 in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMNC) of MM patients was detected by Western blot, and its relation with GC resistence was explored. The results showed that there were no differences in HSP90, GR and IκB-α expressions among MM1.S, MM1.R, PBMNC of normal persons and MM patients, while there was apparent difference in P23; along with increasing of dexamethasone dose, the survival rate of MM1.S decreased, but that of MM1.R did not change so obviously. Among 7 cases with P23 low expression, combination treatment scheme with GC was effective in 6 cases (86%), uneffective in 1 cases (14%); while among 3 cases with P23 high expression, 1 cases (33%) showed effective to combination treatment with GC, 2 cases (67%) showed uneffective (P < 0.05). It is concluded that the P23 expression may predict the sensitivity of MM patients to GC and may be used as index for guiding clinical treatment.Zhongguo shi yan xue ye xue za zhi / Zhongguo bing li sheng li xue hui = Journal of experimental hematology / Chinese Association of Pathophysiology 01/2012; 20(1):103-6.
