Glioblastomas rely mainly on aerobic glycolysis to sustain proliferation and growth; however, little is known about the regulatory mechanisms of metabolism in glioblastoma stem cells. We show that miR-143 is significantly down-regulated in glioma tissues and glioblastoma stem-like cells (GSLCs), while miR-143 over-expression inhibits glycolysis by directly(More)
The wetting behavior of water on the solid surfaces is fundamental to various physical, chemical and biological processes. Conventionally, the surface with charges or charge dipoles is hydrophilic, whereas the non-polar surface is hydrophobic though some exceptions were recently reported. Using molecular dynamics simulations, we show that there is a(More)
BACKGROUND We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to address the (added) value of intraoperative 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA)-guided resection of high-grade malignant gliomas compared with conventional neuronavigation-guided resection, with respect to diagnostic accuracy, extent of tumor resection, safety, and survival. METHODS AND FINDINGS(More)
—The survivability of network is of vital importance with respect to the normal operation of information infrastructure. The current research works in the area of network survivability generally aimed at the definitions and quantifications of specific survivability attributes or metrics for distinct network objects. Unfortunately, there is a lack of(More)
We have demonstrated that carbon-microelectromechanical systems ͑C-MEMS͒, in which patterned photoresist is pyrolyzed in inert environment at high temperature, constitutes a powerful approach to building 3D carbon microelectrode arrays for 3D microbattery applications. High aspect ratio carbon posts ͑Ͼ10:1͒ are achieved by pyrolyzing SU-8 negative(More)
By incorporating cation-π interactions to classic all-atoms force fields, we show that there is a clear enrichment of Na(+) on a carbon-based π electron-rich surface in NaCl solutions using molecular dynamics simulations. Interestingly, Cl(-) is also enriched to some extend on the surface due to the electrostatic interaction between Na(+) and Cl(-),(More)

Wernicke encephalopathy (WE), a neurological disorder caused by thiamine deficiency (TD), is characterized by structural damage in brain regions that include the thalamus and cerebral cortex. The basis for these lesions is unclear, but may involve a disturbance of glutamatergic neurotransmission. We have therefore investigated levels of the astrocytic(More)
Metabolic dysfunction as a consequence of thiamine (vitamin B1) deficiency (TD), a model of Wernicke's encephalopathy, leads to elevation of extracellular glutamate concentration in vulnerable brain regions consistent with the development of excitotoxicity. Complexin I and complexin II are two genes labeling principally inhibitory and excitatory synapses,(More)
Glioma relies on glycolysis to obtain energy and sustain its survival under low glucose microenvironment in vivo. The mechanisms on glioma cell glycolysis regulation are still unclear. Signaling mediated by Double-stranded RNA-activated protein kinase (PKR) - like ER kinase (PERK) is one of the important pathways of unfolded protein response (UPR) which is(More)
