Previous research on violence in healthcare settings has primarily examined the occurrence of patient-initiated violence and its effects on physicians, but few studies have focused on(More)
Discoidin domain receptors1 (DDR1) is associated with tumor progression, and its dysregulated expression has been observed in many cancers. We aim to explore molecular mechanism underlying the role of DDR1 in colorectal cancer development. Immunohistochemistry and Western blot were applied to examine the DDR1 expression. Real-time RT-PCR and Western blot(More)
The endothelin (ET)-1/endothelin A receptor (ETAR) axis is reportedly involved in tumor cell invasion, survival, and metastasis. However, the role of ETAR in colon cancer metastasis and the underlying mechanisms have not been defined. In the present study, we assessed the role of ETAR in colon cancer metastasis in vitro and in vivo. Overexpression and(More)
Existing models for predicting microcystin concentration in water body generally use chlorophyll or cyanobacteria concentration as input variables, although microcystins only originate from toxigenic strains of a few species. Moreover, the nonconcurrency between harmful algal growth and toxin release has yet to be quantified. Therefore, this study explored(More)
