We developed a new electroporation system, including a microchip and a logic circuit, and combining with the function of electrophoresis, which can site-specific enhancement of the gene concentration. We have demonstrated that the electroporation microchip could enhance and target in vitro gene transfection for cell lines. In this micro-device, the outer(More)
Although recent studies have found that heme oxygenase (HO)-1 plays an important role in myocardiac cell survival, the precise mechanisms occurring during hypoxia/reoxygenation (H/R) injury remain unclear. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the cytoprotective mechanisms of HO-1 against H/R-induced myocardiac cell apoptosis and to explore(More)
This study introduced a novel algorithm to compute similarities between natural languages. Using syntactical relationships derived from natural languages, the algorithm proposed a semantic structural model and quantified natural languages using the word similarity method based on WordNet and lexical databases. The experimental results indicated that the(More)
This paper describes and characterizes an electroporation microchip device and system optimization. This device combines microfabrication techniques, logic circuit, and electrophoresis design to create a multi-function gene transfection device that can be used in a number of medical science research applications. This device consists of two components: a(More)
