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)
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)
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)
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)
BACKGROUND Displaced femoral neck fractures (FNFs) in healthy elderly patients have traditionally been managed with hemiarthroplasty (HA) or total hip arthroplasty (THA), with studies suggesting that THA may be the better option. However, it has recently been reported that bipolar HA (BHA) also provides good outcomes, and it is not clear as to whether BHA(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)
In this paper, nonlinear dynamics of Duffing system with fractional order damping is investigated. The four order RungeKutta method and ten order CFE-Euler methods are introduced to simulate the fractional order Duffing equations. The effect of taking fractional order on the system dynamics is investigated using phase diagrams, bifurcation diagrams and(More)
This paper discusses a utility function-based control of a battery-ultracapacitor (UC) hybrid energy system. The example system employs the battery semiactive topology. In order to represent different performance and requirements of the battery and UC packs, the two packs are modeled as two independent but related agents using the NetLogo environment.(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)
