The epidermis is a dynamic renewing structure that provides life-sustaining protection from the environment. The major cell type of the epidermis, the epidermal keratinocyte, undergoes a carefully choreographed program of differentiation. Alteration of these events results in a variety of debilitating and life-threatening diseases. Understanding how this… (More)
The forkhead transcription factor hepatocyte nuclear factor 3beta (HNF3beta) is essential in foregut development and the regulation of lung-specific genes. HNF3beta expression leads to growth arrest and apoptosis in lung cancer cells and HNF3beta is a candidate tumor suppressor in lung cancer. In a transcriptional profiling study using a conditional cell… (More)
We investigate the effects of 20-hydroxyecdysone (20E) on improving memory deficits in the current study by using an animal model of type 1 diabetes mellitus in rats. Animals in control group went on a normal diet. Rats that developed diabetes were divided into 4 groups, including STZ-induced diabetic group which was treated with saline and three 20E groups… (More)
In order to support the QoS of the network, a scalable framework based on the deterministic QoS guarantees was proposed. On the basis of the edge-core network model, we introduced the notion of flow and micro-flow, a two-layer scheduling model based on the arrival curves and service curves, and derived the upper bound on the queue length, the queue delay,… (More)
Energy is one of the most important resources in wireless sensor networks. Recently, the mobility of base station has been exploited to preserve the energy. But in event driven networks, the mobility issue is quite different from the continuous monitoring one because only a small portion of sensor node has data to send at one time. The number of sensor node… (More)
BACKGROUND It has been known that an intensive relationship exists between the recurrence or metastasis and angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), but it is uncertain whether there is relationship between VEGF-C expression and angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis in NSCLC tissues. This study is to explore the… (More)
A novel and convenient one-pot route for the synthesis of 3-benzyl-2-phenylquinolin-4(1 H)-ones has been developed under transition-metal-free conditions. This new strategy features high yield and good functional group tolerance. In addition, a proposed mechanism has been confirmed for this reaction.
