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)
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)
Recently, the scheme of parallel downloading has been proposed as a novel approach to expedite the reception of a large file from the Internet. Experiments with a single client have shown that the client can improve its performance significantly by using the scheme. Simulations and experiments with multiple clients using the scheme have been conducted in(More)
OBJECTIVE Phospholipid transfer protein (PLTP) accelerates the development of atherosclerosis in mouse models. We examined the role of PLTP in atherosclerotic plaque stability. APPROACH AND RESULTS We prepared apolipoprotein E and PLTP double-knockout (PLTP(-/-)ApoE(-/-)) mice. PLTP deficiency significantly decreased lesion size and reduced(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)
OBJECTIVE To study the relationship between nasal airway function and severe obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome (sOSAHS). METHOD One hundred and four cases were divided into 3 groups: group A was 39 normal adult men, group B was 25 nonobese patients with sOSAHS (BMI<28), groups C was 40 obese patients with sOSAHS (BMI > or = 28). Acoustic(More)
Erratum The original publication [1] is missing the funding information in the acknowledgement. The missing part can be found here: " Reference 1. (2017). The influence of hafnium doping on density-of-states in zinc oxide thin-film transistors deposited via atomic layer deposition. Nanoscale Res. permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in(More)
Thin-film transistors (TFTs) with atomic layer deposition (ALD) HfZnO (HZO) as channel layer and Al2O3 as gate insulator were successfully fabricated. Compared with ZnO-TFT, the stability of HZO-TFT was obviously improved as Hf doping can suppress the generation of oxygen related defects. The transfer characteristics of TFTs at different temperatures were(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)
