A disintegrin and metalloprotease 17 (ADAM17) is a transmembrane protein that can cleave membrane anchored proteins to release soluble factors and regulate important biological phenomena in cancers. In the present study, we evaluated the effects of ADAM17 on the proliferation and on the cell cycle distribution of human prostate cancer cells. Experiments(More)
H.264 video applications based on mobile handheld devices are becoming more and more popular. How to protect the security has become an important topic. However, the significant power consumption of video encryption algorithms executing the limited battery capacity of handheld devices restricts the abroad use. In this paper, we propose a low power partial(More)
—Parameters optimization plays an important role for the performance of least squares support vector machines (LS-SVM). In this paper, a novel parameters optimization method for LS-SVM is presented based on chaotic ant swarm (CAS) algorithm. Using this method, the optimization model is established, within which the fitness function is the mean square error(More)
Reelin is an extracellular matrix (ECM) protein that is essential for neuron migration and positioning. The expression of reelin in multiple myeloma (MM) cells and its association with cell adhesion and survival were investigated. Overexpression, siRNA knockdown, and the addition of recombinant protein of reelin were used to examine the function of reelin(More)
Collective motions of animals that move towards the same direction is a conspicuous feature in nature. Such groups of animals are called a self-propelled agent (SPA) systems. Many studies have been focused on the synchronization of isolated SPA systems. In real scenarios, different SPA systems are coupled with each other forming a network of SPA systems.(More)
To ensure sustainable development regarding solid waste management three areas have to be ensured: environmental sustainability, economical sustainability and social acceptance. This means that an environmental assessment is not sufficient to base decisions upon, why models for evaluating environmental consequences of a solid waste management system are(More)
Aim. In routine histopathology, decalcification is an essential step for mineralized tissues. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of different decalcification solutions on the morphological and antigenicity preservation in Sprague Dawley (SD) rat femurs. Materials and Methods. Four different decalcification solutions were employed to remove(More)
Jiang Tang Xiao Ke (JTXK) granule, a Chinese herbal formula, has been used clinically to treat type 2 diabetes (T2DM) for decades. Our previous studies showed that JTXK granule exhibited anti-diabetic and anti-oxidative functions in experimental diabetic rats induced by a high fat diet and streptozotocin. However, the underlying mechanisms remain poorly(More)
