It has been assumed, based largely on morphologic evidence, that human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) contain underdeveloped, bioenergetically inactive mitochondria. In contrast, differentiated cells harbour a branched mitochondrial network with oxidative phosphorylation as the main energy source. A role for mitochondria in hPSC bioenergetics and in cell(More)
RNA import into mammalian mitochondria is considered essential for replication, transcription, and translation of the mitochondrial genome but the pathway(s) and factors that control this import are poorly understood. Previously, we localized polynucleotide phosphorylase (PNPASE), a 3' --> 5' exoribonuclease and poly-A polymerase, in the mitochondrial(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM To evaluate the effect of myopia on retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thickness measurement by using spectral domain optical coherence tomography (Cirrus HD OCT) and scanning laser polarimetry with enhanced corneal compensator (GDx ECC). METHODS One hundred and forty-nine eyes of 149 myopic subjects were recruited and subdivided into three(More)
To date, a great number of studies have demonstrated that altered expression of kinesins is associated with development and progression of various human cancers. Kinesin family member 26B (KIF26B), a member of the kinesin superfamily proteins (KIFs), is essential for kidney development. However, the role of KIF26B during tumorigenesis and progression is(More)
Gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) adenocarcinoma carries a poor prognosis that is largely attributable to early and frequent metastasis. The acquisition of metastatic potential in cancer involves epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT). The metastasis-associated gene MTA3, a novel component of the Mi-2/NuRD transcriptional repression complex, was(More)
The prevalence of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is 0.19%-0.41% in Chinese population. RA exerts profound influence on health-related quality of life (HRQoL), which imposed huge burdens on patients physically, mentally, and economically. As a developing country, People's Republic of China faces enormous challenges in management of RA. Conventional-synthesized(More)
This study aims to investigate lymphatic metastasis-related genes in non-small cell lung carcinomas (NSCLC). NSCLC tissue was analyzed for expression of junctional adhesion molecule-C (JAM-C) protein. Our data revealed novel associations between JAM-C overexpression in primary tumors and lymphatic microvessel density (LMVD), lymph node metastasis, and(More)
BACKGROUND There has been an increase in natural disasters in recent years, which leads to a great number of injuries and deaths. It still remains an unsolved problem to treat patients with vascular injury of solid organs effectively following natural disasters, but on-spot emergency interventional transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE) has been highly(More)
—A unified physically based ion implantation damage model has been developed which successfully predicts both the impurity profiles and the damage profiles for a wide range of implant conditions for arsenic, phosphorus, BF 2 , and boron implants into single-crystal silicon. In addition, the amorphous layer thicknesses predicted by this new damage model are(More)
Internet of Things is a key component of next generation information technology. And the key of Internet of Things is RFID. Now Internet of Things brings new requirements to handheld UHF RFID reader. This paper proposed a complete solution of handheld UHF RFID reader based on AS3991 and AM3517 for The Internet of Things。This reader uses AS3991 UHF(More)
