Analysis of patient tumors suggests that multiple MAP3 kinases (MAP3Ks) are critical for growth and metastasis of cancer cells. MAP3Ks selectively control the activation of extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1/2 (ERK1/2), Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK), p38 and ERK5 in response to receptor tyrosine kinases and GTPases. We used MDA-MB-231 cells because of(More)
Acetohydroxyacid synthase (AHAS) has been regarded as a promising drug target against Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) as it catalyzes the biosynthesis of branched-chain amino acids. In this study, 23 novel AHAS inhibitors were identified through molecular docking followed by similarity search. The determined IC(50) values range from 0.385 ± 0.026 μM to(More)
Terrestrial LiDAR provides many disciplines with an effective and efficient means of producing realistic three-dimensional models of real world objects. With the advent of mobile terrestrial LiDAR, this ability has been expanded to include the rapid collection of three-dimensional models of large urban scenes. For all its usefulness, it does have drawbacks.(More)
detection of Setaria tundra (Nema-toda: Filarioidea) and an unidentified filarial species in mosquitoes in Germany. To the Editor: Rabies is considered a reemerging zoonosis in China because many cases have been reported in recent years (1). The first case of rabies in Henan Province was reported in 1951. No more than 10 cases were reported per year during(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the split patterns of the mandibular ramus in sagittal split ramus osteotomy (SSRO) using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) and examine the related anatomic features that may be associated with these split patterns. PATIENTS AND METHODS The authors designed and implemented a retrospective cohort study and enrolled a sample composed(More)
OBJECTIVES Chronic renal disease (CRD) accelerates atherosclerosis and cardiovascular calcification. Statins reduce low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol levels in patients with CRD, however, the benefits of statins on cardiovascular disease in CRD remain unclear. This study has determined the effects of pitavastatin, the newest statin, on arterial(More)
Ichthyophthirius multifiliis is an important fish ectoparasite that often results in significant economic losses to freshwater aquaculture. The search of alternative substances to control infections of I. multifiliis became stringent after malachite green, an effective and widely used chemotherapeutant, is banned on fish farms because of its carcinogenicity(More)
In the title compound, C12H12O7, the dihedral angles between the benzene ring and the mean planes of the 3-carb-oxy-meth-oxy, 1-carb-oxy-meth-oxy and acetyl substituents are 8.67 (7), 7.81 (6) and 10.3 (18)°, respectively. In the crystal, mol-ecules are linked by typical carb-oxy-lic acid O-H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming a zigzag chain. C-H⋯O inter-actions(More)
In the title compound, [Cd(NCS)(2)(C(4)H(6)N(4)O(2))(2)](n), the Cd(II) cation is located on an inversion center and is coordinated by two N and two S atoms from four SCN(-) anions and two N atoms from two 3-(1H-tetra-zol-1-yl)propanoic acid (Htzp) ligands in a distorted octa-hedral geometry. The SCN(-) anions bridge the Cd(II) cations into a layer(More)
In the title compound, C(15)H(12)O(4)·H(2)O, the two benzene rings are not coplanar, making a dihedral angle of 7.24 (16)°. An intra-molecular hy-droxy-carbonyl O-H⋯O hydrogen bond occurs. In the crystal, four inter-molecular O-H⋯O hydrogen bonds involving the hy-droxy residues, the carbonyl group and the water mol-ecule lead to the formation of a(More)
