The ability of living cells to respond appropriately to apoptosis signals is crucial for the proper development and homeostasis of multicellular organisms. For example, viable cells must be stable enough to appropriately respond to apoptosis signaling so that an irreversible death program is only induced when apoptosis signaling reaches a certain threshold.(More)
The goal of this study was to explore neural response to touch in children with and without autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Patterns of reduced (hypo-responsiveness) and enhanced (hyper-responsiveness) behavioral reaction to sensory input are prevalent in ASD, but their neural mechanisms are poorly understood. We measured event-related potentials (ERP) to a(More)
INTRODUCTION Lung adenocarcinoma with clear cell component is extremely rare and the cases reported in literature remain scarce. The biological behaviors, clinicopathologic characteristics, mutational status and prognosis of lung adenocarcinoma with clear cell component are still uncertain. METHODS Thirty-eight lung adenocarcinomas with clear cell(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to compare the short-term and mid-term results of patients with centrally located lung cancer who underwent bronchial sleeve resection by robotic system or thoracotomy. METHODS From September 2014 to September 2015, 103 patients, including 17 robotic and 86 open cases, were included in our study. All the(More)
BACKGROUND Discuss an appropriate strategy for treatment of invasive thymoma invading adjacent great vessels. METHODS A retrospective study on 25 patients with invasive thymoma invading neighboring great vessels was performed. The corresponding data including clinical presentation, operation procedure, adjuvant radio-chemotherapy and follow-up were(More)
Sublobar resection has been increasingly adopted in elderly patients with stage IA non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), but the equivalency of sublobar resection versus lobectomy among young patients with stage IA NSCLC is unknown. Using the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) registry, we identified patients aged ≤35 years who were diagnosed(More)
RGB color-tunable "turn-on" electrofluorochromic (EFC) devices with high color purity (457 nm for blue, 539 nm for green, and 641 nm for red), relatively quick response/fading speeds and remarkable fluorescence contrast ratios are successfully fabricated. They exhibit great potential for increasingly important multistage encrypted information storage and(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to identify the technical aspects and short-term results of robotic sleeve resection for lung cancer patients. METHODS Twenty-one consecutive cases of robotic sleeve resection from September 2014 to September 2015 were reviewed. RESULTS There were 17 single sleeve resection (bronchial) and 4 double sleeve(More)
The ability for living cells to respond properly to apoptosis signals is crucial for cell development. Bistability (i.e., all-or-none behavior) of the caspase-3 activity has been proposed by some researchers to model the bimodal cell fate decision upon stimulation of the apoptosis signaling pathway. In this study, we investigate Fas-induced apoptosis, and(More)
A biomimetic system on reversible bond-coupled electron transfer (BCET) has been proposed and investigated in a switchable Rh-N molecule with redox active subunits. We discover that energy barrier of C-N bond breaking is reduced dramatically to less than 1/7 (from 40.4 to 5.5 kcal/mol), and 1/3 of the oxidation potential is simultaneously lowered (from 0.67(More)
