A new friedelane-type triterpene (1), along with seven known triterpenoids, was isolated from the stems and leaves of Calophyllum inophyllum Linn. Their structures were established as 3beta, 23-epoxy-friedelan-28-oic acid (1), friedelin (2), epifriedelanol (3), canophyllal (4), canophyllol (5), canophyllic acid (6), 3-oxo-friedelan-28-oic acid (7), and(More)
Transient deformations of leukocytes (WBCs) were studied during their saltation along post-capillary venous endothelium (EC) in mesentery of the rat. During intermittent adhesion of WBCs to EC, prevailing fluid shear stresses, tau wall, resulted in a stepwise loading of the WBC upon attachment with a transient increase in length, L(t), and reduction in(More)
The neural mechanism of leader emergence is not well understood. This study investigated (i) whether interpersonal neural synchronization (INS) plays an important role in leader emergence, and (ii) whether INS and leader emergence are associated with the frequency or the quality of communications. Eleven three-member groups were asked to perform a(More)
Dysregulation of the phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K)/AKT/mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) signaling has been found in several types of human cancer, including hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). NVP-BEZ235 is a novel, orally bioavailable dual PI3K/mTOR inhibitor that has exhibited promising activity against HCC in preclinical models. Autophagy is a(More)
INTRODUCTION To provide information for cervical cancer screening and vaccination in Henan province, China, the distribution of human papillomavirus (HPV) was analyzed. METHODS The HPV genotypes were detected using gene array and flow-through hybridization. RESULTS Overall, 38.1% (1,536/4,033) of the women were human papillomavirus deoxyribonucleic acid(More)
BACKGROUND Gaps continue to exist between research-based evidence and clinical practice. We surveyed health care providers in 10 low- and middle-income countries about their use of research-based evidence and examined factors that may facilitate or impede such use. METHODS We surveyed 1499 health care providers practising in one of four areas relevant to(More)
Recent studies have identified mutations in PHF8, an X-linked gene encoding a JmjC domain-containing protein, as a causal factor for X-linked mental retardation (XLMR) and cleft lip/cleft palate. However, the underlying mechanism is unknown. Here we show that PHF8 is a histone demethylase and coactivator for retinoic acid receptor (RAR). Although activities(More)
