Microarray studies revealed down-regulation of PCDH9 mRNA level in lymph node metastasis of gastric cancer compared with the primary tumors. The expression of PCDH9 protein and its clinicopathological relevance were assessed on tissue microarrays of 1072 cases of gastric cancer. Its prognostic value was further evaluated on a small cohort of 175 gastric(More)
BACKGROUND Pancreatic cancer is one of the most lethal cancers worldwide. CD86 (B7-2) is a costimulatory molecule on antigen-presenting cells and plays critical roles in tumor immunity. It has been reported that polymorphisms in CD86 gene can be involved in the development of various cancers. Here, we investigated the association of two CD86 polymorphisms,(More)
Low temperature during the vegetative stage affects rice (Oryza sativa L.) seed-setting rate in Heilongjiang province at Northeast China. However, little is known about changes of the photosynthetic rate and physiological response in contrasting rice cultivars during chilling periods. In this study, two rice cultivars with different chilling tolerance were(More)
SUMMARY To one double-breaker model, experimental investigation on blow open force was carried out. It demonstrates that the ratio between the emerging blow open force and arc power F B /ui decreases with the arc-ing time, the contact gap has less effect on F B /ui, and the characteristics of the blow open force are similar when the peak value of the short(More)
Gamma glutamylcyclotransferase (GGCT) has been proved to be involved in various cancers, but the biological function of GGCT in gastric cancer is still largely unknown. The expression level of GGCT was evaluated by informatics analyses based on the Oncomine database. GGCT gene was then effectively knocked down via lentivirus mediated short hairpin RNA(More)
