An increasing number of reports suggest a role for A3 adenosine receptors (A3ARs) in mediating adenosine action in the central nervous system. However, studies of A3AR localization in the brain have yet to be performed. To provide insights into the central sites of A3AR action, we compared patterns of A1 and A3AR mRNA and binding site expression in the(More)
Reprogrammed glucose metabolism is an emerging hallmark of cancer cells, which show a unique metabolic phenotype known as the Warburg effect. Lactate dehydrogenase A (LDHA), a key enzyme in the glycolytic process, executes the final step by conversion of lactate into pyruvate. However, little is known about the roles of LDHA in human glioblastoma (GBM). In(More)
Before being subjected to the aging process, raw tobacco leaves (TLs) must be threshed and redried. We propose that threshing and redrying affect the bacterial communities that inhabit the TL surface, thereby influencing the aging process. However, these effects remain unclear. In this study, Illumina sequencing was applied to analyze the bacterial(More)
BACKGROUND Differentiating benign from malignant sinonsal lesions is essential for treatment planning as well as determining the patient's prognosis, but the differentiation is often difficult in clinical practice. The study aimed to determine whether the combination of diffusion-weighted (DW) and dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging(More)
