Astrocyte elevated gene-1 (AEG-1) is associated with tumor genesis and progression in a variety of human cancers. This study aimed to explore the significance of AEG-1 in glioma and investigate whether it correlated with radioresistance of glioma cells. Immunohistochemical staining showed that the intensity of AEG-1, CD133 and PPP6c protein expression in(More)
Covalent organic frameworks are a class of crystalline organic porous materials that can utilize π-π-stacking interactions as a driving force for the crystallization of polygonal sheets to form layered frameworks and ordered pores. However, typical examples are chemically unstable and lack intrasheet π-conjugation, thereby significantly limiting their(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the relationship between serum uric acid (SUA) and metabolic syndrome (MS) in men, premenopausal women and postmenopausal women. METHODS A cross-sectional study was conducted in 1,834 community-based Southern Chinese participants from June to October 2012. Sex-specific SUA quartiles were used as follows: <345, 345-<400, 400-<468, ≥(More)
Mineral cycling plays a critical role in wetland ecosystem functions and can be affected by environmental changes, such as CO2 enrichment. Learning the responses of mineral bioavailability in wetlands to elevated CO2 under field conditions will provide enormous benefits to the assessment of climate change impacts on wetland ecosystems. A free-air CO2(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the relationship between the HW phenotype and risk for CKD in a community population aged 40 years and older. METHODS A cross-sectional study was conducted in Zhuhai from June to October 2012. The participants were divided into three groups: Group 1, Waist circumference >90 cm in men or >85 cm in women and triglycerides ≥2 mmol/l;(More)
Gastric cancer is the world’s second most common malignancy and is a major threat to global health. IL-17, a CD4 T cell-derived mediator of angiogenesis, plays a major role in stimulating angiogenesis by regulating the production of a variety of proangiogenic factors, including the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). The level of VEGF expression(More)
The effect of peritoneal dialysis (PD) with high-glucose dialysis fluid on the VEGF family, tristetraprolin (TTP), angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis was investigated. Forty male SD rats were randomised into five groups: normal group, sham operation group, uraemia group, PD 2-week group and PD4-week group. After 4 weeks of PD, microvessel density (MVD) and(More)
Recessive genic male sterility (RGMS) is common in plants and has been widely applied as an effective and economic system for hybrid seed production in many crops. However, little is known regarding the molecular mechanisms of RGMS in cabbage (Brassica oleracea L. var. capitata) due to limited transcriptomic and genomic data. Comparative transcriptomic(More)
A phylogeny-guided approach was applied to screen endophytic fungi containing type I polyketide synthase (PKS I) biosynthetic gene sequences and aimed to correlate genotype to chemotype for the discovery of novel bioactive polyketides. Salicorn 58, which was identified as Talaromyces funiculosus based on its internal transcribed spacer (ITS) and ribosomal(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the changes in the neuronal microenvironment of the middle cerebral artery (MCA) territory induced by Jing-well points bloodletting acupuncture (WPBA) and to explore the neuroprotective mechanism of WPBA in stroke. METHODS Adult male Sprague Dawley (n = 32) rats were randomly divided into four groups of eight animals each:(More)
