INTRODUCTION Increasing evidence indicates that microRNAs (miRNAs) play a critical role in the pathogenesis of inflammatory diseases. The aim of the study was to investigate the expression pattern and function of miRNAs in CD4+ T cells from patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS The expression profile of miRNAs in CD4+ T cells from synovial(More)
Acyl-CoA dehydrogenase gene (yafH) of Escherichia coli was expressed together with polyhydroxyalkanoate synthase gene (phaC(Ac)) and (R)-enoyl-CoA hydratase gene (phaJ(Ac)) from Aeromonas caviae. The expression plasmids were introduced into E. coli JM109, DH5 alpha and XL1-blue, respectively. Compared with the strains harboring only phaC(Ac) and phaJ(Ac),(More)
BACKGROUND Fucoidan is a sulfated polysaccharide derived from brown algae that has been reported to perform multiple biological activities, including antitumor activity. In this study, we examined the influence of crude fucoidan on mouse breast cancer in vitro and in vivo. MATERIALS AND METHODS In vitro, fluorescent staining, flow cytometry and Western(More)
Understanding the genetic basis of Rubisco activase (RCA) gene regulation and altering its expression levels to optimize Rubisco activation may provide an approach to enhance plant productivity. However, the genetic mechanisms and the effect of RCA expression on phenotype are still unknown in soybean. This work analysed the expression of RCA genes and(More)
A monolithic double-balanced graphene mixer integrated circuit (IC) has been successfully designed and fabricated. The IC adopted the cross-coupled resistive mixer topology, integrating four 500 nm-gate-length graphene field-effect transistors (GFETs), four on-chip inductors, and four on-chip capacitors. Passive-first-active-last fabrication flow was(More)
Prognostic and health monitoring (PHM) is the latest development of large complex equipment management. An extensible distributed prognostic and health monitoring system based on hybrid wireless network techniques was studied and designed in this paper. Firstly,after a careful analysis on the structure and tasks of the equipment, the general PHM framework(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the distribution of β3-adrenergic receptors (ADRβ3) gene polymorphisms (rs2298423 and rs6986132) and its association with serum lipid in Han and Uighur populations in Xinjiang. METHODS Genotypes of the ADR β 3 gene were detected in 362 Uighur and 653 Han healthy individuals who were randomly selected in Xinjiang by real-time PCR(More)
Animal and cell experiments showed that inositol hexaphosphate (IP6) was protective on neurons in parkinson's disease (PD) model, but the underlying mechanism of this action was not extensively elucidated. To address this question, we established 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) induced human dopaminergic cell line SH-SY5Y as PD cell model and testified the(More)
We designed specific small interfering RNA (siRNA) targeting vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) mRNA and synthesized oligo fragments, then siRNA was obtained by in vitro transcription and transfected into cultured human colon carcinoma cell line HT-29 with lipofectamine. We also analyzed the effect of the siRNA on proliferation of HT-29 cells by(More)
Fucoidan is a sulfated polysaccharide derived from brown algae and is known to possess anticancer properties. However, the relationship between fucoidan and β-catenin, one of the key components of the Wnt signaling pathway, in mouse breast cancer remains poorly characterized. In this study, mouse breast cancer cells (4T1) were exposed to fucoidan to(More)
