The axon guidance cues netrin-1 has been reported to be associated with cancer progression in various types of human cancers. However, the underlying molecular mechanism of netrin-1-mediated metastasis remains obscure. In this study, we found that overexpression of netrin-1 promoted HCC cell migration and invasion as determined by transwell assay and 3D(More)
Elevated expression of CXCL9 has been shown to involve in the infiltration of inflammatory cells and liver damage after Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection. However, whether and by what underlying mechanism does CXCL9 play a role in HBV infection associated hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) invasion ability remain unclear. In this study, human HCC as well as(More)
The histidine-rich calcium binding protein (HRC) is a regulator of Ca2+-homeostasis. Herein, we found that HRC was frequently upregulated in human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) tissues, and its expression was correlated with tumor size and metastasis. Moreover, HRC expression was positively related to the metastatic potential of HCC cell lines. Knockdown(More)
We have recently shown that the histidine-rich calcium binding protein (HRC) promotes the invasion and metastasis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). In the current study, we evaluated whether HRC may also affect the growth of HCC. We found that ectopic expression of HRC obviously enhanced proliferation and colony formation, while suppression of HRC(More)
Recent studies have demonstrated that increased RhoA/Rho-kinase activity and reduced nitric oxide activity have the necessary machinery to induce cirrhosis. However, it is unclear whether this regulates the functions of hepatic stellate cells (HSCs). In this study, we used sodium ferulate (SF) in a cirrhotic rat model and examined its roles in regulating(More)
An all-fiber, single-frequency, single-mode linearly polarized, high peak power pulsed laser at 1540 nm for coherent Doppler wind lidar is demonstrated. A narrow-linewidth seed laser is pulse modulated by an acousto-optic modulator and then amplified by two-stage cascade amplifiers. An 0.8 m long erbium/ytterbium co-doped polarization-maintaining fiber with(More)
The design process and simulation method of a multipass absorption cell used for the frequency stabilization of the reference seeder laser in integrated path differential absorption (IPDA) lidar are presented. On the basis of the fundamental theory of the Herriott multipass cell comprising two spherical mirrors, the initial parameters of the multipass cell,(More)
A unique approach with a hybrid master oscillator power amplifier configuration to obtain single-frequency, high-energy laser pulses at 1064 nm is presented. The setup consists of a single-frequency seed laser, a multistage fiber amplifier, and a four-pass crystal rod amplifier. Pulse energy of 10 mJ is obtained at the repetition rate of 100 Hz. The pulse(More)
