To date, the only entire Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) genomic sequence available in the database is the prototype B95.8, which was derived from an individual with infectious mononucleosis. A causative link between EBV and nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), a disease with a distinctly high incidence in southern China, has been widely investigated. However, no(More)
Heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1), a rate-limiting enzyme in heme catabolism, is known to play a role in the protection of cells against oxidative stress, inflammation, anomalous proliferation and apoptosis. As yet, the role of HO-1 expression in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) development and metastasis remains unclear and insufficient data are available(More)
Understanding the dynamics and underlying mechanism of carbon exchange between terrestrial ecosystems and the atmosphere is one of the key issues in global change research. In this study, we quantified the carbon fluxes in different terrestrial ecosystems in China, and analyzed their spatial variation and environmental drivers based on the long-term(More)
UV radiation from the sun is a potent environmental risk factor in the pathogenesis of skin damage. Much of the skin damage caused by ultraviolet A (UVA) irradiation from the sun is associated with oxidative stress. The aim of this study was to investigate the protective role of ellagic acid (25-75 μM), a natural antioxidant, against UVA (5-20(More)
OBJECTIVE Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been shown to play an important regulatory roles in cancer biology, and the lncRNA-UCA1 is upregulated in several cancers such as bladder cancer, breast cancer and colorectal cancer, however, the contributions of UCA1 to non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) remain largely unknown. METHODS Expression levels of(More)
Protoapigenone, isolated from the native fern plant Thelypteris torresiana, has anticancer activity against some cancer cells. However, the toxicological mechanism for protoapigenone is still unknown. Here, we investigated the anticancer effect of protoapigenone on human lung cancer cell lines. The comet assay showed that DNA damage induced by(More)
Chronic inflammation, a process linked to increased oxidative stress, may induce many diseases. Whether beta-carotene prevents inflammation is unclear. Using phorbol-12-myristate-13-acetate (PMA)-stimulated HL-60 cells, we investigated the effects of 2 or 20 microM beta-carotene on the inflammatory reaction of monocyte/macrophage-like cells and the(More)
To evaluate the clinical efficacy and safety of rh-endostatin (Endostar) combined with chemotherapy in the treatment of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), we selected data from the Cochrane Library, EMBASE, Medline, SCI, CBM, CNKI, etc to obtain all clinical controlled trials, including the addition of endostar to chemotherapy in advanced(More)
In this work, one of Zingiber officinale components, 10-shogaol, was tested with 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical scavenging, metal chelating ability, and reducing power to show antioxidant activity. 10-Shogaol promoted human normal epidermal keratinocytes and dermal fibroblasts cell growths. 10-Shogaol enhanced growth factor production in(More)
A Gram-stain positive, non-motile, non-sporogenous, aerobic, rod-shaped and halophilic bacterium, designated LAM0015T, was isolated from a saline sediment sample collected from Yantai City in China. The isolate was found to be able to grow at NaCl concentrations of 5–25 % (w/v) (optimum: 7–12 %), 15–45 °C (optimum: 35 °C) and pH 5.0–9.0 (optimum: 7.0). The(More)
