    microRNA-9 (miR-9) has been found to be upregulated along with tumor progression of gliomas by microarray-based expression profiling, and also be strongly linked to glioblastoma subtypes. However, its prognostic value in glioma is still elusive. miR-9 expression in human gliomas and...

    Glioma is the most common type of human intracranial cancers and has poor prognosis. Bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP2) plays important roles in cancer cell signalings (Vecht et al. Oncologist 19:751-9, ). Here, we aimed to investigate the correlation of BMP2 with patient prognosis as well as...

    Background: Chloride intracellular channel 1 (CLIC1) is expressed ubiquitously in human tissues and is involved in the regulation of cell cycle, cell proliferation and differentiation. Recent studies have shown that CLIC1 is highly expressed in several human malignant tumors. However, its roles...
