Adinbitor was cloned from Agkistrodon halys brevicaudus stejneger and characterized as a novel disintegrin. In this study, total RNA was extracted from venom gland and used in RT-PCR to generate a cDNA which is 219 bp long. The sequence encoded a polypeptide composed of 73 amino acids, including 12 cysteines, an RGD motif, and the signature motif of(More)
Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis (IPA) is difficult to diagnose in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The aim of this study was to evaluate whether detection of galactomannan (GM) in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) might be a useful means of making the diagnosis. Patients with COPD and new pulmonary infiltrates were enrolled. BALF was(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effects of the intelligent-turtle massage on the physical symptoms and immune functions in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). METHODS 182 cases of CFS were randomly divided into an experimental group of 91 cases treated by the intelligent-turtle massage, and a control group of 91 cases treated with the conventional(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the role of insulin like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) and insulin like growth factor binding protein-1 (IGFBP-1) in the pathogenesis of hypertensive disorder complicating pregnancy. METHODS The levels of IGF-1 and IGFBP-1 in serum and placenta were detected from 60 patients with hypertensive disorder complicating pregnancy(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of reconstruction of penile urethra with the 3-dimensional (3-D) porous bladder acellular matrix (BAM) in a rabbit model. MATERIALS AND METHODS In 30 male rabbits, a ventral urethral mucosal defect (1.5 × 0.8 cm) was created. Substitution urethroplasty was performed with 5% peracetic acid (PAA)-treated BAM (3-D porous BAM;(More)
The three homologous members of the p160 SRC family (SRC-1, SRC-2 and SRC-3) mediate the transcriptional functions of nuclear receptors and other transcription factors, and are the most studied of all the transcriptional co-activators. Recent work has indicated that the SRC-3 gene is subject to amplification and overexpression in various human cancers. Some(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the biocompatibility and neovascularization of the PLGA nanospheres wrapped with vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), which can improve bladder acellular matrix graft (BAMG) with local continuous release of VEGF. METHODS A total of 18 rabbit model (length of stenosis: 3 cm) with anterior urethral stricture were used as(More)
The goal of this study was to evaluate the effects of urethral reconstruction with a three-dimensional (3D) porous bacterial cellulose (BC) scaffold seeded with lingual keratinocytes in a rabbit model. A novel 3D porous BC scaffold was prepared by gelatin sponge interfering in the BC fermentation process. Rabbit lingual keratinocytes were isolated,(More)
Web service is a service-oriented architecture which can achieve real platform-independent and language-independent. Ontology is a formal representation of the knowledge by a set of concepts within a domain and the relationships between those concepts. In this paper, we analyzed the key technologies and architecture of Web services and discus one such(More)
