Fruit ripening is a complex developmental process that depends on a coordinated regulation of numerous genes, including ripening-related transcription factors (TFs), fruit-related microRNAs, DNA methylation and chromatin remodeling. It is known that various TFs, such as MADS-domain, MYB, AP2/ERF and SBP/SPL family proteins play key roles in modulating(More)
BACKGROUND Gastric carcinoma (GC) is one of the highest cancer-mortality diseases with a high incidence rate in Asia. For surgically unfit but medically fit patients, palliative chemotherapy is the main treatment. The chemotherapy regimen of docetaxel, cisplatin and 5-fluorouracil (DCF) has been used to treat the advanced stage or metastatic GC. It is(More)
Clinical and experimental evidence suggests that genetic variations may play an important role in the development of acute lung injury (ALI). Lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced ALI models has been widely applied for pathophysiological and pharmacological research. In order to understand the variation of acute pulmonary reactions between mouse strains and find(More)
There is growing evidence that the signal pathway between hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) and its receptor c-Met plays an important role in the development of lung cancer, although the specificity of such role is to be clarified. It seems clear that the HGF/c-Met signal contributes to the metastasis of cancer cells to the lung by stimulating the(More)
In a cash−in−advance economy where cash is required in advance of purchasing both consumption and investment goods, we find that active interest rate rules generate equilibrium uniqueness, but passive rules can lead to real indeterminacy. Simulation shows that even in the presence of investment, passive rules are very likely to render indeterminacy.

BACKGROUND Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) involves inflammation at the sacroiliac joint and spine attachment site. This study aimed to observe the ratio and function of peripheral regulatory Vδ1 T cells in AS patients to investigate their roles in AS pathogenesis. MATERIAL AND METHODS Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) were separated by density-gradient(More)
