ARID1A is frequently mutated in various cancer types, but both mutation rates and expression levels of ARID1A are ubiquitously low in SCCs. Here, we reveal that excessive protein degradation mediated by the ubiquitin-proteasome system (UPS) contributes to the loss of ARID1A expressi…

Artemisinin is an important extract that is widely used as an antimalarial drug which also serve as effective treatments for cancer. 32 nude mice were injected with 0.2 ml of MDA-MB-231 cell suspension of 2 × 107 cells/ml respectively. The nude mice models were randomly divided into four groups of 8 in each group. Each group was given daily gavage, high dose group: 200 mg/kg/0.1 ml, middle dose grou…
