Core Tip

Core tip: Using a pcDNA3.1(+)-pancreatic-duodenal homeobox-1 (PDX1) vector, a PDX1-overexpressed model was built. Seven differential proteins were identified in SGC-PDX1 by two-dimensional electrophoresis gel proteomics compared with those in SGC-pcDNA. Four heat shock proteins were identified and confirmed by immunoblotting. qRT-PCR analysis further revealed that the expression of the HSPs was post-translationally regulated by the PDX1 protein. This study suggests the potential involvement of HSPs in PDX1 mediated effects on gastric carcinogenesis.
