Several members of the Yellow Stripe1-Like (YSL) family of transporter proteins are able to transport metal-nicotianamine (NA) complexes. Substantial progress has been made in understanding the roles of the Arabidopsis YSLs that are most closely related to the founding member of the family, ZmYS1 (e.g., AtYSL1, AtYSL2 and AtYSL3), but there is little(More)
The tumor-to-tumor metastasis is a rare event. The lung tumors are the most common donor tumors in tumor-to-tumor metastasis, but are exceedingly rare as a recipient. Here, we report a case of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) metastasizing to adenocarcinoma in situ (AIS, formerly bronchioloalveolar carcinoma) of the lung in a 44-year-old woman who(More)
Ten age-matched normals, diabetics with retinopathy, and diabetics without observable retinopathy were evaluated by vitreous fluorophotometry (VFL) using a 0.15 mm and a 0.45 fiberoptic probe in a photomultiplier system as well as a commercially available photodiode instrument to determine whether differences in intraocular sodium fluorescein levels could(More)
With recent advances in cancer stem cell analysis, it has been postulated that the transformation of hepatic stem and progenitor cells underlies the development of certain liver cancers. Human C-KIT is a transmembrane type III receptor protein with intrinsic tyrosine kinase activity that has been proposed as a marker for human embryonic stem cells. In(More)
Fibromatoses comprise many different entities of well-differentiated fibroblastic proliferation with variable collagen production and form a firm nodular mass. Abdominal fibromatosis is distinguishable from other forms of fibromatosis because of its location and its tendency to occur in women of childbearing age during or following pregnancy. Abdominal(More)
BACKGROUND High-risk human papillomavirus (HR-HPV) infection and abnormal p53 expression are closely involved in carcinogenesis of squamous cell carcinoma (SqCC) of uterine cervix. Recent studies have suggested that virus-induced endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress modulates various cell survival and cell death signaling pathways. The C/EBP homologous protein(More)
Let P (G, λ) be the chromatic polynomial of a graph G. A graph G is chromatically unique if for any graph H, P (H, λ) = P (G, λ) implies H is isomorphic to G. A complete solution to a conjecture on chromatic uniqueness of complete tripartite graphs. Chromatic uniqueness of certain complete t-partite graphs.] show that K(p − k, p − i, p) for i = 0, 1 are(More)
The purpose of this study was (1) to examine the interaction patterns of mothers and their developmentally delayed infants during free play and instructional episodes; (2) to investigate the influence of an early intervention program on the interaction patterns of mothers and their developmentally delayed infants; and (3) to investigate to what extent the(More)
