Flavonoids are structurally similar to steroid hormones, particularly estrogens, and therefore have been studied for their potential effects on hormone-dependent cancers. Baicalein is the primary flavonoid derived from the root of Scutellaria baicalensis Georgi. In the present study, we investigated the effects of baicalein on 17β-estradiol (E2)-induced(More)
Fulvestrant (ICI 182 780, ICI) has been used in treating patients with hormone-sensitive breast cancer, yet initial or acquired resistance to endocrine therapies frequently arises and, in particular, cancer recurs as metastasis. We demonstrate here that both 17-beta-estradiol (E2) and ICI enhance cell adhesion to matrigel in MCF-7 breast cancer cells, with(More)
Automatic moving object detection/extraction has been explored extensively by the computer vision community. Unfortunately majority of the work has been limited to stationary cameras, in which background subtraction is utilized as the major methodology. In this paper, we will present a technique to tackle the problem in the case of moving camera which is(More)
Pentose phosphate pathway (PPP) is a metabolic pathway that generates NADPH and pentose. PPP genes have been reported to be primarily or secondarily upregulated in many cancers. We aimed to study the general alteration of PPP in acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). We performed data mining and analysis of the Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) AML dataset for genetic(More)
A sensitive colorimetric sensor (1) based on 4,5-dinitrobenzene-1,2-diamine was designed and synthesized. Binding of anions such as AcO(-), F(-) and H(2)PO(4)(-) results in a notable change in the visible region of spectrum (an approximately 90nm red shift), which can be detected by the 'naked-eye'. Furthermore, the binding ability was evaluated by UV-vis(More)
