Adiponectin (APN) is an important anti‑atherogenic adipocytokine. The aim of the present study was to investigate the role of adiponectin in atherosclerotic plaque formation and clarify its mechanisms. An atherosclerosis model was induced by in vivo perivascular constrictive silica collar placement on the left common carotid arteries in male apolipoprotein(More)
T-box2 (TBX2) expression has been reported to be related to aggressive tumor features. However, the role of TBX2 in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) tumorigenesis has never been elucidated. So we aimed at investigating the potential role of TBX2 in NSCLC. TBX2 expression was evaluated by qRT-PCR and Western blotting in 50 paired fresh lung cancer tissues(More)
MicroRNA (miR)‑142‑5p is a member of the miR‑142 family, which have been shown to be associated with tumors, stem cells and disorders of the immune system. However, the role of miR‑142‑5p in atherosclerosis has yet to be investigated. In the present study, an atherosclerotic apolipoprotein E‑deficient (apoE‑/‑) mouse model was constructed and fed a high‑fat(More)
Smoothed analysis aims to explain the success of algorithms that work well in practice while performing poorly in worst-case analysis. High performance computers have been used extensively in solving large scale linear systems and decomposition of matrix. The simplest and most implemented method of solving linear systems is Gaussian elimination (Gaussian(More)
Coronary heart disease (CHD) is a cardiovascular disease which is contributed by abnormal neovascularization. VEGFA (vascular endothelial growth factor A) and VEGFR2 (vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2) have been revealed to be involved in the pathological angiogenesis. This study was intended to confirm whether single nucleotide polymorphisms(More)
Noise exposure (NE) is a severe modern health hazard that induces hearing impairment. However, the noise-induced ultrastructural changes of blood-labyrinth barrier (BLB) and the potential involvements of tight junction proteins (TJP) remain inconclusive. We investigated the effects of NE on not only the ultrastructure of cochlea and permeability of BLB but(More)
OBJECTIVES We recently found low level of tumor suppressor programmed cell death 4 (PDCD4) associated with reduced atherosclerotic plaque area (unpublished). We investigated whether atheroprotective unidirectional pulsatile shear stress affects the expression of PDCD4 in endothelial cells. METHODS AND RESULTS En face co-immunostaining of the mouse aortic(More)
