The effects of the suppression of UDP-glucose pyrophosphorylase (UGPase) on chrysolaminaran biosynthesis and carbon allocation were investigated in Phaeodactylum tricornutum. The 69% decrease in UGPase activity was accompanied by a 4.89 fold reduction in Ugp transcript abundance. Inactivation of UGPase in P. tricornutum led to a significant decrease in(More)
BACKGROUND Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most common malignancies in China. The long-term survival rate of patients with HCC after prevention and management remains unsatisfactory. In order to provide a novel strategy to cure HCC, we investigated the effects of antisense oligonucleotides of PKC-alpha on proliferation and apoptosis of human(More)
BACKGROUND Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) can sample the enlarged mediastinal lymph nodes which are unreachable by conventional bronchoscopy. It is a relatively simple and safe method to see beyond the bronchial tree. We describe and discuss its initial application and our experience. METHODS From July 2009 to(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the role of sodium-calcium exchanger (NCX) on ischemic preconditioning and pharmacological preconditioning. METHODS Cultured rat neonatal cardiomyocytes were randomly divided into 6 groups: (1) ischemia/reperfusion group (9 h ischemia followed by 1 h reperfusion, I/R), (2) ischemic preconditioning group (1.5 h ischemia/1 h(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the long-term influence of vertebral fixation through or across the affected vertebra on vertebral morphology. METHODS Clinical data of 48 patients with simple thoracic and lumbar spinal fractures who were admitted between Jan. 2008 and Dec. 2010 were analyzed retrospectively. Among them 36 cases (28 males and 8 females) were fixed(More)
Two dragons playing ball: Direct metal-metal bond formation using a pi-conjugated dinuclear metalladithiolene complex with two electron-deficient metal centers as building blocks led to a cyclic double trinuclear heterometalladithiolene cluster with two parallel plane bridges (see structure; Rh pink, Mo green, S yellow, C gray, O red).
