Activin A, an important member of transforming growth factor-β superfamily, is reported to inhibit proliferation of mature hepatocyte. However, the effect of activin A on growth of hepatic progenitor cells is not fully understood. To that end, we attempted to evaluate the potential role of activin A in the regulation of hepatic progenitor cell(More)
Malus hupehensis Rehd. is often used as rootstock of apple trees. Vacuolar processing enzyme (VPE) is one type of cysteine protease with substrate specificity to residues of asparagine and aspartic acid. The VPE activity, MhVPEγ gene (GenBank number: FJ891065) expression and the amount of cell death in seedlings of M. hupehensis Rehd. all gradually(More)
Gastric cancer is the fourth most common type of cancer and the second cause of cancer‑related mortalities worldwide despite the use of multimodal therapy. Cadherins are transmembrane glycoproteins that are involved in tumorigenesis.

Currently, there are many ways to generate new formal contexts from the original ones. Among these ways, combining formal contexts is the simplest one. This paper mainly discusses the attribute characteristics in the composition of two formal contexts, which is called the combined formal context. It is proved that there exists a strong connection between(More)
