UNLABELLED In the past 50 years there have been considerable efforts to identify the cellular receptor of hepatitis B virus (HBV). Recently, in vitro evidence from several groups has shown that the sodium-taurocholate cotransporting polypeptide (NTCP, which is encoded by SLC10A1 and transports bile acids into hepatic cells in enterohepatic recirculation) is(More)
Osteopetrosis is a group of heterogeneous disorders caused by the dysfunction of osteoclasts. The CLCN7 and TCIRG1 genes are the major obligate genes responsible for infantile malignant osteopetrosis (IMO). IMO patients usually die in infancy or before three years of age. In this study, we report a patient who was diagnosed with IMO at seven months of age.(More)
Cleidocranial dysplasia (CCD) is a rare congenital disorder, typically characterized by persistently open skull sutures, aplastic or hypoplastic clavicles, and supernumerary teeth. Mutations in the gene encoding the runt-related transcription factor 2 (RUNX2) protein are responsible for approximately two thirds of CCD patients. We report a 20-year-old CCD(More)
Hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia (HED) is characterized by abnormal development of the teeth, hair, and sweat glands. Ectodysplasin A (EDA), Ectodysplasin A receptor (EDAR), and EDAR-associated death domain (EDARADD) are candidate genes for HED, but the relationship between WNT10A and HED has not yet been validated. In this study, we included patients who(More)
OBJECTIVES Graphene oxide (GO), the derivative of graphene with unique properties, has attracted much attention for applications in dental implants. The aim of this study was, by two biomimetic cell culture methods, to investigate the quantitative relationship between the concentration of pristine GO nanosheets and their cellular behaviours towards bone(More)
Previous studies have shown that miR-222 targets the p53 upregulated modulator of apoptosis (PUMA) to regulate cell biological behavior in some human malignancies. We hypothesized that there was a negative regulation, which might induce apoptosis, between miR-222 and PUMA in adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC). In this study, the expression levels of miR-222 and(More)
