We present a simple overlapping generations model of an asset market in which irrational noise traders with erroneous stochastic beliefs both affect prices and earn higher expected returns. The unpredictability of noise traders’ beliefs creates a risk in the price of the asset that deters rational arbitrageurs from aggressively betting against them. As a(More)
The semisynthesis of arglabin, an anticancer drug in clinical application, is developed from abundant natural product parthenolide via three steps. Each step in this sequence is highly stereoselective, and the substrate-dependent stereoselectivity in the epoxidation step can be explained by computational calculations. The success of chemical semisynthesis(More)
This project proposes a lossless, a reversible, and a combined data hiding schemes for ciphertext images encrypted by public key cryptosystems with probabilistic and homomorphic properties. In the lossless scheme, the ciphertext pixels are replaced with new values to embed the additional data into several LSB-planes of ciphertext pixels by multi-layer wet(More)
This paper mainly studies mobile sink-based data gathering protocol, according to mobile wireless sensor network model, adopts a joint strategy of sink mobility and routing to realize high-efficient data gathering based on which nodes in network are divided into certain number of clusters, demonstrates that in the square monitoring area with any side-length(More)
Small molecules that can selectively target cancer stem cells (CSCs) remain rare currently and exhibit no common structural features. Here we report a series of guaianolide sesquiterpene lactones (GSLs) and their derivatives that can selectively eradicate acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) stem or progenitor cells. Natural GSL compounds arglabin, an(More)
BACKGROUND Monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) plays an important role in extracellular matrix accumulation through macrophage recruitment and activation in the development and progression of diabetic nephropathy. Therefore, this study examined whether advanced oxidation protein products (AOPPs) are involved in nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) activation(More)
The replacement histone variant H2AX senses DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) and recruits characteristic sets of proteins at its phosphorylated (gamma-H2AX) foci for concurrent DNA repair. We reasoned that the H2AX interaction network, or interactome, formed in the tumor-associated DNA DSB environment such as in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cells, where(More)
Antiangiogenesis is an effective strategy for cancer treatment because uncontrolled tumor growth depends on tumor angiogenesis and sufficient blood supply. Great progress has been made in developing a "molecular" form of angiogenesis inhibitors; however, the narrow inhibition spectrum limits anticancer efficacy as those inhibitors that usually target a few(More)
