Recent studies show that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) may be significant functional regulators in tumor development, including bladder cancer. Here, we found that PVT1 was upregulated in bladder cancer tissues and cells. Further experiments revealed that PVT1 promoted cell proliferation and suppressed cell apoptosis. Furthermore we also used the emerging(More)
BACKGROUND Accumulating evidences indicated that lncRNAs play crucial regulatory roles in oncogenesis and progression of cancers. BRAF activated non-coding RNA (BANCR) has been identified to contribute to the progression of some human cancers. However, the relationship between BANCR and bladder cancer (BC) is largely unclear. METHODS BANCR expression(More)
The reductive removal of U(VI) by nanoscale zerovalent iron (NZVI) was enhanced by using Na(+)-saturated bentonite (Na-bent) as the support, and the mechanism for the enhanced removal were investigated comprehensively. Under the same experimental conditions, NZVI supported on the negatively charged Na-bent showed much higher removal efficiency (99.2%) of(More)
The sustained release and reduced leaching of herbicides is expected for enhancing their efficacy and minimizing their pollution. For this purpose, the rice straw biochar made at a relatively low temperature (350 °C) (RS350) was used simultaneously as the carrier for incorporating herbicides besides as the soil amendment. In this way, the sustained release(More)
NZVI was supported on a pillared bentonite (Al-bent) to enhance the reactivity of NZVI and prevent its aggregation. The performance and mechanisms of the combined NZVI/Al-bent on removing hexavalent chromium (Cr(VI)) was investigated by batch and XAFS experiments. The batch investigations indicated that Cr(VI) could be almost completely removed by(More)
Nanoscale zero valent iron (NZVI) was immobilized on the organobentonite (CTMA-bent), so as to enhance the reactivity of NZVI and prevent its aggregation. This novel composite (NZVI/CTMA-Bent) was characterized by transmission electron microscope and X-ray diffraction. Good dispersion of NZVI particles on the bentonite was observed. Its performance on(More)
BACKGROUND Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been proved to act as key molecules in cancer development and progression. Dysregulation of lncRNAs is discovered in various tumor tissues and cancer cells where they can serve as oncogenes or tumor suppressors. Long non-coding RNA HOXD-AS (HOXD cluster antisense RNA 1) has recently been identified to be(More)
The complex phenotypes of eukaryotic cells are controlled by decision-making circuits and signaling pathways. A key obstacle to implementing artificial connections in signaling networks has been the lack of synthetic devices for efficient sensing, processing and control of biological signals. By extending sgRNAs to include modified riboswitches that(More)
Accumulating evidences indicated that UCA1 expression was up-regulated in various cancers, and high UCA1 expression was correlated with metastasis and prognosis. This meta-analysis collected all eligible studies and explored the relationships between UCA1 expression and lymph node metastasis (LNM) or overall survival (OS). Literature collection was(More)
Various studies have indicated that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) play vital roles in the cancer development and progression. LncRNA hypoxia inducible factor 1alpha antisense RNA-2 (HIF1A-AS2) is upregulated in gastric carcinomas and knockdown of HIF1A-AS2 expression by siRNA could inhibit cell proliferation in vitro and tumorigenesis in vivo.
