MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are important regulators of many physiological and pathological processes, including cell proliferation, apoptosis, and cell cycle arrest. In this study, we aimed to investigate the biological role of miR-155 in cervical cancer and the underlying molecular mechanism involved in tumorigenesis. The expression of miR-155 in human cervical(More)
Previous studies of microarrays have produced mass data that are far from fully applied. To make full use of the available mass data and to avoid redundancy and unnecessary waste, we employed bioinformatics tools GeneSifter and Ingenuity Pathway Analysis (IPA) to mine and annotate 45 microarrays related to endometrium receptivity from GEO (Gene Expression(More)
MicroRNAs negatively regulate target gene expression at the post-transcriptional level during carcinogenesis. Recent advances revealed that the expression levels of several miRNAs are up- or down-regulated in endometrial carcinoma (EC). Here we identify dysregulated miRNAs in EC and we elucidate the essential role of let-7a. The expression of 86 miRNAs in(More)
The present study was conducted to investigate the expression of miR-603 in osteosarcoma cells, and the effect of miR-603 on the biological behavior and expression of breast cancer cell 2 (BRCC2) in osteosarcoma cells. In the present study, qRT-PCR was used to measure the levels of miRNA and mRNA. The results showed that miR-603 was significantly(More)
To investigate the role of total cellular microRNA (miRNA) in regulating epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) during human endometrial endometrioid adenocarcinoma (EEC). A miRCURY LNA microRNA array was used to evaluate the miRNA profiles of human EEC tissues and corresponding nontumorous endometriums. An in vitro model of TGF-β induced EMT in HEC-1-A(More)
BACKGROUND S100P, a protein originally detected in the human placenta, has been found to play an important role in the development and invasion of tumors. Interestingly, we have recently discovered using data mining that S100P was considerably up-regulated during the window of implantation in the human endometrium, but little further information has been(More)
—Wireless power transfer (WPT) has attracted an ever increasing interest from both industry and academics over the past few years. Its applications vary from small power devices such as mobile phones and tablets to high power electric vehicles, and from small transfer distance of centimeters to large distance of tens of centimeters. In order to achieve a(More)
—In this paper, low-order integral–proportional (IP), modified IP (m-IP), and modified integral–proportional– derivative (m-IPD) controllers are designed for the speed control of a two-mass system based on a normalized model and polynomial method. In order to have sufficient damping, the parameters of the controllers are determined through(More)
Wireless power transfer has shown revolutionary potential in challenging the conventional charging method for consumer electronic devices. Through magnetic resonance coupling, it is possible to supply power from one transmitter to multiple receivers simultaneously. In a multiple-receiver system, the overall system efficiency highly depends on the loads' and(More)
— This paper applies fractional order P ID k controller to torsional system's backlash vibration suppression control, in which the order k of D controller can not only be integer but also be any real number. In order to improve control system's robustness against backlash non-linearity, several methods have been proposed. However their design processes are(More)
