    Background: In prostate cancer, normal citrate-producing glandular secretory epithelial cells undergo a metabolic transformation to malignant citrate-oxidizing cells. m-Aconitase is the critical step involved in this altered citrate metabolism that is essential to prostate malignancy. The...

    Background: Hypoxia in cancers results in the upregulation of hypoxia inducible factor 1 (HIF-1) and a microRNA, hsa-miR- 210 (miR-210) which is associated with a poor prognosis. Methods and Findings: In human cancer cell lines and tumours, we found that miR-210 targets the mitochondrial iron...

    Background and aims: Aluminum (Al)-induced citrate exudation has been identified as an important Al-resistance mechanism in soybean. Salicylic acid (SA) is a crucial signal molecule modulating numerous environment stresses in plants. This study was to investigate the role of SA in Al-induced...

    Transglutaminase 2 (TGase 2) expression and glycolysis are increased in most renal cell carcinoma (RCC) cell lines compared to the HEK293 kidney cell line. Although increased glycolysis and altered tricarboxylic acid cycle are common in RCC, the detailed mechanism by which this phenomenon occurs...

    Aconitase (ACO) is a key enzyme that catalyzes the isomerization of citrate to isocitrate in the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) and glyoxylate cycles. The function of ACOs has been well studied in model plants, such as Arabidopsis. In contrast, the evolutionary patterns of the ACO family in land...

    Background: Aberrant transcript alternative splicing is an important regulatory process closely connected with oncogenesis. Purpose: The objective of this study was to determine the phenotype and function of a novel long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) LINC00477 in gastric cancer. Patients and methods:...
