Programmed cell death (apoptosis) is a tightly regulated process of cell disassembly in which dying cells and their nuclei shrink and fragment and the chromosomal DNA is degraded into internucleosomal repeats. Here we report the characterization of the cps-6 gene, which appears to function downstream of, or in parallel to, the cell-death protease CED-3 of(More)
To present experience and feasibility of endoscopic realignment for treatment of delayed recognized iatrogenic complete transected ureteral injuries. Patients suffering from iatrogenic complete transected ureteral injuries were treated by two surgeons. Five women and 3 men with a mean age of 50.8 years (range 22–69) received diagnosis during the immediate(More)
BACKGROUND Breast surgical site infections (SSIs) are major sources of postoperative morbidity and mortality, and it's established that surveillance of risk factors is effective in reducing hospital-acquired infections. However, studies about risk factors for breast SSIs were still under controversy because of limited data, contradictory results and lack of(More)
Demonstrating in vivo interaction of two important biomolecules and the relevance of the interaction to a biological process have been difficult issues in biomedical research. Here, we report the use of a homology modeling approach to establish the significance of protein interactions in governing the activation of programmed cell death in Caenorhabditis(More)
The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans has been shown to be an excellent model organism with which to study the mechanisms of programmed cell death because of its powerful genetics and the ability to study cell death with single-cell resolution. In this chapter, we describe methods that are commonly used to examine various aspects of programmed cell death in(More)
Tripartite motif-containing 24 (TRIM24), also known as transcription intermediary factor 1-alpha (TIF1α), is a chromatin-associated protein which as been has been implicated in carcinogenesis. However, its expression profile and biological roles in human bladder carcinoma has not been investigated. In this study, we examined its expression in 95 bladder(More)
Edge of an Image is One of the most fundamental and significant futures. Edge detection is always one of the classical studying projects of computer vision and image processing field. It is the first step of image analysis and understanding. The purpose of edge detection is to discover the information about the shapes and the reflectance or transmittance in(More)
Rsf-1 (HBXAP) was recently reported to play roles in tumorigenesis and tumor progression. There have been many reports referred to Rsf-1 overexpression in various cancers and associated with the malignant behavior of cancer cells. However, the molecular mechanism of Rsf-1 in non-small cell lung cancer aggressiveness remains ambiguous. In the present study,(More)
