A panel of five circulating microRNAs as potential biomarkers for prostate cancer.
BACKGROUND Circulating microRNA (miRNAs) have been shown to have the potential as noninvasive diagnosis markers in several types of cancers. In this study, we investigated whether circulating miRNAsExpand

Overexpression of 14-3-3ζ in cancer cells activates PI3K via binding the p85 regulatory subunit
The ubiquitously expressed 14-3-3 proteins regulate many pathways involved in transformation. Previously, we found that 14-3-3ζ overexpression increased Akt phosphorylation in human mammaryExpand

Molecular identification and functional expression of porcine Toll-like receptor (TLR) 3 and TLR7.
To investigate porcine Toll-like receptors (TLR) responding to viral pathogen associated molecular patterns, the full-length cDNA of porcine TLR3 and TLR7 were identified and characterized. PorcineExpand

Decreased polysomal HSP-70 may slow polypeptide elongation during skeletal muscle atrophy.
Slowed elongation rate is the apparent cause of the rapid decrease in rat soleus muscle protein synthesis rate during non-weight bearing. We found that elongation factor 2 was not phosphorylated andExpand
