For the surface-optoelectronic study of Saxitoxin sensing, we fabricated self-assembled calix[4]arene derivative monolayers as the recognition-functional interfaces on a gold surface. An interaction study between Saxitoxin and calix[4]arene derivative monolayers were performed using surface plasmon resonance (SPR) spectroscopy. Among three calix[4]arene(More)
Lung cancer is the most common cancer in the world and the leading cause of tumor death among males. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are single-stranded RNAs of approximately 22 nucleotides and constituted a new class of gene regulators in humans. As a novel class of emerging biomarkers, the aberrant expression of miRNA has been detected in various tumors. miRNAs are(More)
Oxidative stress is a major risk factor in the onset and progression of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). NF-E2 related factor 2 (NRF2) is a pivotal transcription factor in oxidative stress related illnesses. This study included 2174 subjects with 879 cases of newly-diagnosed T2DM and 1295 healthy controls. Compared to individuals with the CC genotype, those(More)
The evaluation of the antioxidant, anti-secretory and anti-inflammatory potentials of the ethyl acetate fraction (ELC) from the root bark of Lycium chinense against ethanol-induced gastric ulcer in mice and the possible mechanisms underlying this action was performed. The results indicated that oral administration of ELC (50, 100, 200 and 400 mg/kg) before(More)
Phenethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC) was obtained from horseradish. The preparation procedure was as follows: the horseradish powder was hydrolysed in the water first, and then, after filtration, the residue was extracted by petroleum ether; finally, PEITC was isolated by silica gel column. The structure of PEITC was identified by IR, MS, ¹H-NMR and ¹³C-NMR(More)
The impact of low level dust on the thyroid function of workers chronically exposed to ammonium perchlorate (AP) is uncertain and controversial. The aim of this study was to examine whether workers in China with long-term (>3 years) occupational exposure to low levels of AP dust had affected thyroid homeostasis. Mean occupational exposures to AP dust ranged(More)
OBJECTIVE To verify the efficacy and safety of post-marketed fleabane injection combined with Dengzhan Shengmai capsules in the treatment of ischemic stroke (IS). METHOD A multicentre, prospective, practical, randomized controlled study was carried out to compare the efficacy and safety of Dengzhan group (n = 343) and western medicine group (n = 335),(More)
The objective of this study was to explore the gastroprotective properties of the aerial part of Lycium chinense Mill (LCA) against ethanol-induced gastric mucosa lesions in mice models. Administration of LCA at doses of 50, 100, 200 and 400 mg/kg body weight prior to ethanol consumption dose dependently inhibited gastric ulcers. The gastric mucosal injury(More)
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a major regulator of angiogenesis. It has been identified as an ideal biomarker for staging of many kinds of cancers, so more specific and intense signal is desirable for VEGF biosensors so that the sensors may have more valuable clinical application. Herein, we report a highly sensitive and selective surface(More)
The Bloom syndrome gene product, BLM, is a member of the highly conserved RecQ family. An emerging concept is the BLM helicase collaborates with the homologous recombination (HR) machinery to help avoid undesirable HR events and to achieve a high degree of fidelity during the HR reaction. However, exactly how such coordination occurs in vivo is poorly(More)
