The inhibitors of apoptosis (IAPs) are a group of anti-apoptotic factors in the apoptotic pathway that render cancer cells insensitive to apoptotic stimulation. Recently, several members of the IAP family have been investigated in the context of bladder cancer, and some of these have been associated with specific clinical and pathological tumor features,(More)
The hydronephrotic kidney, resulting from a ureteropelvic junction obstruction (UPJO), presents commonly as a clinical condition, with the presence of usually no more than 1-2 liters in the collecting system, but a very small number of cases of giant hydronephroses (GHs) has been reported in adults. A GH is defined as the adult renal pelvis containing >1(More)
This study aimed to investigate the effect of ambroxol on the concentration of cefotaxime in the bronchioal-veolar lavage fluid of rats with bleomycin‑induced pulmonary fibrosis. A total of 54 Wistar male rats were randomly divided into three groups, namely the normal control group, model group and ambroxol group. On experimental day 0, the rats were(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the inhibitory effect of specific mimic peptides targeting duck hepatitis B virus polymerase (DHBVP) on duck hepatitis B virus (DHBV) replication in primary duck hepatocytes. Phage display technology (PDT) was used to screen for mimic peptides specifically targeting DHBVP and the associated coding sequences(More)
To investigate allelic variation of Myb10-1 genes in Chinese wheat and to examine its association with germination level in wheat, a total of 582 Chinese bread wheat cultivars and 110 Aegilops tauschii accessions were used to identify allelic variations of three Myb10-1 genes. Identification results indicated that there is a novel Tamyb10-B1 allele,(More)
The aim of this study was to explore the pathological changes in water homeostasis and the effects of glucocorticoids on aquaporin-1 (AQP1) in guinea pigs with otitis media with effusion (OME). Immunohistochemistry and western blotting were used to detect AQP1 in the bullae of OME models, which were induced by reversible Eustachian tube (ET) obstruction.(More)
