S100B is an EF-hand containing calcium-binding protein of the S100 protein family that exerts its biological effect by binding and affecting various target proteins. A consensus sequence for S100B… Expand
Expression and prognostic significance of THBS1, Cyr61 and CTGF in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma
BackgroundThrombospondin1 (THBS1), cystene-rich protein 61 (Cyr61) and connective tissue growth factor (CTGF) are all involved in the transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-β) signal pathway, which… Expand
Long non-coding RNA MEG3 inhibits microRNA-125a-5p expression and induces immune imbalance of Treg/Th17 in immune thrombocytopenic purpura.

- 1 October 2016
BACKGROUND The imbalance of Treg/Th17 cells is an important pathogenic factor for immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). We previously reported miR-125a-5p targeted CXCL13 and participated in the… Expand
Mechanistic studies for the role of cellular nucleic-acid-binding protein (CNBP) in regulation of c-myc transcription.
BACKGROUND Guanine-rich sequence of c-myc nuclease hypersensitive element (NHE) III1 is known to fold in G-quadruplex and subsequently serves as a transcriptional silencer. Cellular… Expand
Comparing Mini Sarcopenia Risk Assessment With SARC-F for Screening Sarcopenia in Community-Dwelling Older Adults.
OBJECTIVE The Mini Sarcopenia Risk Assessment (MSRA), a new sarcopenia screening tool, has 2 versions: MSRA-7 (full version, 7 items) and MSRA-5 (short version, 5 items). We aimed to compare the… Expand
A Novel Interleukin 33/ST2 Signaling Regulates Inflammatory Response in Human Corneal Epithelium
Interleukin (IL) 33, a member of IL-1 cytokine family, is well known to promote Th2 type immune responses by signaling through its receptor ST2. However, it is not clear whether ST2 is expressed by… Expand
