Ubiquitin-like with PHD and ring finger domains 1 (UHRF1) is a novel anti-apoptotic gene, and overexpression of UHRF1 is involved in tumorigenicity. Here, immunohistochemistry was used to detect UHRF1 expression in non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC), and these data were examined for correlation with clinicopathological parameters and prognosis. The(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE High-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) is a versatile protein with intranuclear and extracellular functions that is involved in numerous biological and pathological processes, such as transcription, DNA repair, and response to infection and inflammation. HMGB1 overexpression has been reported in a variety of human cancers. However, the(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the expressions of chemokine receptors and interleukin (IL) receptors on the peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) from systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients and their correlations with clinical features as well as SLE disease activity index (SLEDAI). METHODS The mRNA expressions of chemokine receptors and IL receptors(More)
BACKGROUND Increasing evidence show that OX40 ligand (OX40L), also known as tumor necrosis factor superfamily member 4 (TNFSF4), plays an important role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. We investigated whether expression levels of soluble OX40L in serum and of membrane OX40L on platelets were related to serum concentrations of matrix(More)
AbstractAim:To determine whether carbon monoxide (CO)-releasing molecules-liberated CO suppress inflammatory cytokine production and oxidative stress in the small intestine of burnt mice.Methods:Twenty-eight mice were assigned to 4 groups. The mice in the sham group (n=7) underwent sham thermal injury, whereas the mice in the burn group (n=7) received 15%(More)
Forkhead box protein M1 (FoxM1) is crucial in the regulation of various biological processes, including cell proliferation, organogenesis, and angiogenesis. Overexpression of FoxM1 is associated with carcinogenesis. In this study, immunohistochemistry was carried out to examine FoxM1 expression in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC), and these data were(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate physiologic effects of electroacupuncture (EA) combined with xylazine administration in goats. ANIMALS 48 healthy crossbred goats. PROCEDURES Goats were randomly allotted to 8 groups of 3 (nonpregnant and nonlactating) female goats and 3 male goats each. The 8 treatment groups were as follows: 1 EA group, 3 xylazine (0.1, 0.2,(More)
In order to investigate the dynamic processes of mRNA levels of proenkephalin, proopiomelanocortin, prodynorphin, and opioid receptors (δ-, μ-, and κ-receptor) induced by electroacupuncture (EA) in the central nerve system, goats were stimulated by EA of 60 Hz for 0.5 h at a set of Baihui, Santai, Ergen, and Sanyangluo points. The pain threshold was(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to investigate the minimally invasive cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) and deep hypothermic circulatory arrest (DHCA) approach in the management of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) with level III or IV inferior vena cava (IVC) thrombus and evaluate the survival outcomes. METHODS We performed a retrospective analysis on 32 RCC(More)
The golden snub-nosed monkey is an endangered species and study of its reproductive physiology is crucial for the species' breeding programs. Urine samples (770) from 5 mature female golden snub-nosed monkeys were collected in the Shengnongjia Nature Reserve between October 2013 and December 2014 to monitor their menstrual cycle, gestation, and lactation.(More)
