In this letter, a network-coded cooperation scheme with dynamic coding mechanism (DC-NCC) is proposed. In DC-NCC, the relay dynamically adapts forming the network-coded data based on the observed instantaneous source-to-relay channel quality, and then forwards the network-coded data towards corresponding destinations. Under the assumption (denoted as A)(More)
Network-coded cooperation is a new communication paradigm that exploits spatial diversity by pooling distributed "communication" (relay) and also the distributed "computation" resources (coding) of different nodes in a network so as to increase wireless networks system performance. In this paper, we develop a selective network-coded cooperation (SNCC)(More)
BRD7 is a novel gene which involved NPC in our lab. Our previous studies showed that BRD7 was expressed at high level in normal nasopharyngeal epithelial tissues, but at low level in nasopharyngeal carcinoma biopsies and cell lines. In these papers, we found that ectopic expression of BRD7 can decrease cell proliferation and capability to form colonies in(More)
MST1 (mammalian STE20-like kinase 1) is a serine/threonine kinase that is cleaved and activated by caspases during apoptosis. Overexpression of MST1 induces apoptotic morphological changes such as chromatin condensation, but the mechanism is not clear. Here we show that MST1 induces apoptotic chromatin condensation through its phosphorylation of histone(More)
AIM To produce high-quality polyclonal antibody to lysosome-associated protein transmembrane 4B-35 and to identify LAPTM4B-35 expression in cancer tissues and its correlation with differentiation status of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). METHODS The 297 bp 5' end of LAPTM4B cDNA was obtained by PCR and inserted into prokaryotic expression vector pGEX-KG.(More)
Embryonic stem (ES) cells are pluripotent cells with the capacity for unlimited self-renewal or differentiation. Inhibition of MAPK pathways enhances mouse ES cell pluripotency characteristics. Compared to wildtype ES cells, jnk2(-/-) ES cells displayed a much higher growth rate. To determine whether JNKs are required for stem cell self-renewal or(More)
BRD7, a novel bromodomain gene, is identified to be associated with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). Decreased or loss of expression of BRD7 was detected in NPC biopsies and cell lines. Overexpression of BRD7 could inhibit NPC cell growth and arrest cells in cell cycle by transcriptionally regulating some important molecules involved in ras/MEK/ERK and(More)
Studies showed that the bromodomain binds to acetyl-lysines on histone tails, which is involved in deciphering the histone codes. BRD7, a novel bromodomain gene, is the first described bromodomain gene involved in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). Previous studies showed that ectopic expression of BRD7 inhibited cell growth and cell cycle progression from G1(More)
TRAF4 is an adapter protein overexpressed in certain cancers, but its contributions to tumorigenesis are unclear. In lung cancer cells and primary lung tumors, we found that TRAF4 is overexpressed. RNA interference-mediated attenuation of TRAF4 expression blunted the malignant phenotype in this setting, exerting inhibitory effects on cell proliferation,(More)
Diphenyl difluoroketone (EF24), a curcumin analog, exhibits potent anti-tumor activities by arresting cell cycle and inducing apoptosis. However, the efficacy and modes of action of EF24 on melanoma metastasis remain elusive. In this study, we found that at non-cytotoxic concentrations, EF24 suppressed cell motility and epithelial-to-mesenchymal Transition(More)
