The molecular mechanism underlying activation of matrix metallopeptidase 9 (MMP9) in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cells, which controls cancer invasiveness and metastasis, remains elusive. Here, we reported a strong correlation of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and MMP9 levels in NSCLC patients. Thus, we used a human NSCLC line, A549, to(More)
No clear consensus has been reached on the XPA gene rs1800975 polymorphism and lung cancer risk. We performed a meta-analysis in an effort to systematically explore the possible association. We conducted a computer retrieval of PubMed, Embase, Wanfang, China National Knowledge Infrastructure Platform, and VIP databases prior to November 2013. References of(More)
The influence of metal vapour on the arc behaviour during the arc-splitting process in the quenching chamber of a low-voltage circuit breaker is investigated numerically. A three-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic model of air arc plasma, taking into account the production of metal vapour from erosion of an iron splitter plate, is developed. An equation(More)
This paper investigates a scheduling model with certain co-existing features of serial-batching, dynamic job arrival, multi-types of job, and setup time. In this proposed model, the jobs of all types are first partitioned into serial batches, which are then processed on a single serial-batching machine with an independent constant setup time for each new(More)
This paper investigates a three-stage supply chain scheduling problem in the application area of aluminium production. Particularly, the first and the third stages involve two factories, i.e., the extrusion factory of the supplier and the aging factory of the manufacturer, where serial batching machine and parallel batching machine respectively process jobs(More)
