To study the apoptosis of lymphocyte subpopulations in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients and the possible role of IL-10 in this apoptosis involved in the pathogenesis of SLE, three color fluorescence and flow cytometry were used to investigate the early apoptosis of lymphocyte subsets from freshly separated or cultured peripheral blood mononuclear(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Interleukin-29 (IL-29), a critical member of type III interferons (IFNs) family, has been implicated in protecting against viral infection and modulating autoimmune inflammation. Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) plays a crucial role in synovial inflammation and may contribute to the pathogenesis of rheumatology arthritis (RA). However, little is(More)
This article describes the solution-phase synthesis of 4 nm gold nanoparticles with 0.7 atom-thick, 1.9 atom-thick, and 3.8 atom-thick layers of Pd on their surfaces. These well-defined core−shell nanoparticles were deposited on a silica support, calcined, and reduced at 300 °C to create alloyed nanoparticles containing 10.9, 20.2, and 28.5% Pd (w/w).(More)
As probiotics in the gut, Lactobacilli are believed to play important roles in the development and maintenance of both the mucosal and systemic immune system of the host. This study was aimed to investigate the immuno-modulatory function of candiate lactobacilli on T cells. Lactobacilli were isolated from healthy human feces and the microbiological(More)
The searches on criminal network have become a key issue recent years, as the criminal activities are becoming grouping and networking. Most researches mainly focus on network of criminals, few on network of suspects and the traditional method is studying the static structure of the network, without explaining the behaviours among the nodes. In this paper,(More)
