BACKGROUND The widespread threat of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) to human life has spawned challenges to develop fast and accurate analytical methods for its early diagnosis and to create a safe antiviral vaccine for preventive use. Consequently, we thoroughly investigated the immunoreactivities with patient sera of a series of synthesized(More)
3D N-doped graphene-CNT networks (NGCs) can be obtained by hydrothermal treatment, freeze-drying and subsequent carbonization of graphene oxide-dispersed pristine CNTs in the presence of pyrrole. The resulting NCGs used as a supercapacitor show high specific capacitance, good rate capability and still retain ∼96% of the initial capacitance even after 3000(More)
Nasopharyngeal cancer (NPC) is an endemic type of head and neck cancer with a high rate of cervical lymph node metastasis. Metastasis is the major cause of death in NPC patients. Increasing evidence indicates that exosomes play a pivotal role in promoting cancer metastasis by enhancing angiogenesis and ECM degradation. Matrix metalloproteinase 13 is an(More)
Stathmin 1 (STMN1) is an important molecule in regulating cellular microtubule dynamics and promoting microtubule depolymerization in interphase and late mitosis. Evidences showed that STMN1 was up-regulated in many cancers, but there was no report about the roles of STMN1 in human cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC). Here, we confirmed significant(More)
BACKGROUND FGF receptor (FGFR) family can be activated by FGFs and play important roles in regulating cell growth, differentiation, migration and angiogenesis. Recent studies suggested that FGFR4 could regulate several processes including tumor progression. Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is a malignancy with a high occurrence in Southeast Asia and Southern(More)
This paper presented a novel method for the organic pigment coated with titania to improve the weatherability and dispersion ability in waterborne system. The organic pigment was first orderly adsorbed by two kinds of electrolyte: poly(sodium 4-styrenesulfonate) (PSS) and poly(diallyldimethylammonium chloride) (PDADMAC), then coated by titania via sol-gel(More)
Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is one of the most common malignancies of the head and neck. It arises from the nasopharynx epithelium and is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) have been reported to regulate gene interaction and play critical roles in carcinogenesis and progression. LncRNA-ROR, a recently identified(More)
A disintegrin and metalloprotease 10 (ADAM10) is a typical member of the ADAMs family, which has been reported to be upregulated in various types of cancers and contribute to cancer progression and metastasis. However, little is known about the role of ADAM10 in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). The purpose of this study is to explore ADAM10 expression status(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the influence of liposome induced gene transfection on the phenotypic characteristics and immune function of human immature dedritic cells (imDC). METHODS Monocytes were isolated from human cord blood, and they were differentiated into imDC by rhGM-CSF and rhIL-4 induction. Then the morphologic observation and immune phenotypic(More)
