PURPOSE MicroRNAs (miRNA) are involved in and are controlled by epigenetic regulation, and thereby form a reciprocal regulatory circuit. Using next-generation sequencing (NGS)-based miRNA profiling, this study aimed to discover esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC)-specific miRNAs and miRNA-related epigenetic modulations. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN NGS-based(More)
INTRODUCTION Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is one of the most aggressive malignant tumors. Eukaryotic translation initiation factors 3B (EIF3B) is considered to influence tumor proliferation, invasion, apoptosis and cell cycle, which act together to promote the progression of tumors. However, the role of EIF3B in ESCC is unknown. This study aims(More)
OBJECTIVES Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma is one of the most frequent malignant tumors. Cancer stem cells are considered to be responsible for tumor growth, metastasis, and recurrence. Cluster of differentiation 133 (CD133) and C-X-C chemokine receptor type 4 (CXCR4) are frequently applied markers for the identification and isolation of cancer stem(More)
CXC chemokines and their cognate receptors have been implicated wildly in cancer pathogenesis. In the present study, we report a critical cause relationship between CXCR4 expression and tumorigenesis in the setting of human esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). In ESCC cells, CXCR4 expression was significantly higher than in human esophageal epithelial(More)
UNLABELLED Increasing evidence in recent years has suggested that B cells act as a crucial regulator in autoimmune diseases. However, little is known about their role in autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) and the underlying regulatory mechanisms. In this study, we show that B cells ameliorated experimental AIH (EAH) by suppressing CD4+ T-cell responses and that(More)
In order to reduce the underwater ultrasonic image speckles and to enhance the image characteristics, an anisotropic diffusion model is established based on the wavelet transform in this paper. At the same time, it also provides the steps of the algorithmic architecture and analyzes the key links of the model during its application. Two-check experiments(More)
There are some serious interference signals on the airborne radar surveillance polarization receiver during working, which are caused by local electronic equipments. By extracting frequency polarization features, the simultaneously arriving signals of radar surveillance and interference can be polarization separated, and having a high accuracy. At the same(More)
The management of chronic empyema with persistent bronchopleural fistula (BPF) is a major challenge for surgeons. We report our experience of performing pedicle muscle flap transposition for chronic empyema with BPF in a clinical center in China. The subjects of this study were 13 patients with postoperative chronic empyema and persistent BPF. The surgical(More)
