Over 200 cases of undifferentiated embryonal sarcoma of the liver (UESL) have been reported since 1978 when this disease was first described. In the present study, we describe a case of UESL in a 7-year-old female, whose initial symptoms included swelling in the upper abdomen and a palpable enormous irregular tumor. A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)(More)
Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is one of the primary causes of severe pulmonary hypertension. In order to identify long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) that may be involved in the development of CTEPH, comprehensive lncRNA and messenger RNA (mRNA) profiling of endothelial tissues from the pulmonary arteries of CTEPH patients was conducted(More)
Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is one of the main causes of severe pulmonary hypertension. However, despite treatment (pulmonary endarterectomy), in approximately 15-20% of patients, pulmonary vascular resistance and pulmonary arterial pressure continue to increase. To date, little is known about the changes that occur in gene(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the genes associated with 'anger-in' (tendency to suppress anger) and 'anger-out' (tendency to express anger through verbal or physical means) emotions in humans. Wistar rats were divided into five groups (n=10/group), based on the type of model and the Chinese medicinal formulation administered, and the rat(More)
The aim of this in vivo study was to determine the existence of muscle-derived stem cells (MDSCs) in rat corpus cavernosum. Immunohistochemical and RT-PCR analyses were performed to determine the expression of the stem cell markers (Sca-1, Oct4, and desmin) in Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats in different age groups (10 rats in each group). Sca-1 was mainly(More)
Osteoblasts have the capacity to perceive and transduce mechanical signals, and thus, regulate the mRNA and protein expression of a variety of genes associated with osteogenesis. Cytoskeletal reconstruction, as one of the earliest perception events for external mechanical stimulation, has previously been demonstrated to be essential for mechanotransduction(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of SmacN7 on the biological characteristics of pancreatic cancer cell lines, and to assess the effect of SmacN7 on the sensitivity to tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) and gemcitabine. SmacN7 fusion polypeptide was synthesized and characterized using mass spectrometry.(More)
Based on the combination of social networking sites (for short SNS), the study involves the trading of virtual product development status, collates and summarizes the research results in China and abroad consumers buying behavior on virtual products. The researchers attempt to explore factors influencing consumers to buy SNS virtual products by using(More)
