Neprilysin (neutral endopeptidase, NEP) is a cell surface peptidase whose expression is lost in approximately 50% of prostate cancers (PC). NEP normally functions to inactivate peptides such as bombesin and endothelin-1, and potentiates the effects of the PTEN tumor suppressor via a direct protein-protein interaction. NEP loss contributes to PC progression.(More)
Neutral endopeptidase (NEP) is a cell surface peptidase that catalytically inactivates a variety of physiologically active peptides including basic fibroblast growth factor (FGF-2). We investigated the effect of using lentivirus to overexpress NEP in NEP-deficient DU145 prostate cancer cells. Third-generation lentiviral vectors encoding wild-type NEP(More)
In this paper, a comparative study is performed for the transcritical carbon dioxide refrigeration cycles with a throttling valve and with an expander, based on the first and second laws of thermodynamics. The effects of evaporating temperature and outlet temperature of gas cooler on the optimal heat rejection pressure, the coefficients of performance(More)
The fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe has no large vacuoles under normal growth conditions, although budding yeasts usually have large central vacuoles. The minimum inhibitory concentration of amphotericin B to S. pombe was 0.5 microgram ml-1; treatment with 0.2 microgram ml-1 for 20 min induced rapid and extensive vacuolation in S. pombe exponential(More)
The immune system can be damaged by chronic stress. However, for this process, the involved molecular alterations and their regulatory roles played in immunosuppression still remain unclear. This study was aimed to identify the differences in serum protein expressions that are closely associated with the effect of chronic stress on immune function. Serum(More)
