The pathogenesis of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is multifactorial and multigenetic. The apoptosis genes, fas and fas ligand (fasL), are candidate contributory genes in human SLE, as mutations of these genes result in autoimmunity in several murine models of this disease. In humans, fas mutations result in a familial autoimmune lymphoproliferative(More)
Automated nuclear detection is a critical step for a number of computer assisted pathology related image analysis algorithms such as for automated grading of breast cancer tissue specimens. The Nottingham Histologic Score system is highly correlated with the shape and appearance of breast cancer nuclei in histopathological images. However, automated nucleus(More)
Thirteen antibiotics in soil from vegetable farmlands of the Pearl River Delta, southern China, were investigated. At least three antibiotics were detected in each sample. Six antibiotics including four quinolones, tetracycline, and sulfamethoxazole were detected in >94% of the samples. The total contents of three tetracyclines, eight sulfonamides, and four(More)
AIM Glycyrrhizin (GL) has been reported to protect against ischemia and reperfusion (I/R)-induced injury by inhibiting the cytokine activity of high mobility group box 1 (HMGB1). In the present study, the protective effects of GL against I/R injury, as well as the related molecular mechanisms, were investigated in rat brains. METHODS Focal cerebral I/R(More)
In this paper, a Stacked Sparse Autoencoder (SSAE) based framework is presented for nuclei classification on breast cancer histopathology. SSAE works very well in learning useful high-level feature for better representation of input raw data. To show the effectiveness of proposed framework, SSAE+Softmax is compared with conventional Softmax classifier,(More)
Lymphangiogenesis has recently been considered important for spread of malignant tumors. In the present study, lymphatic vessel density (LVD) including peritumoral LVD (P-LVD) and intratumoral LVD (I-LVD) was determined, respectively, by immunohistochemical staining with the antibody to LYVE-1 in 63 cases of early gastric carcinoma and 105 cases of advanced(More)
The quantitative expression of complement receptor type 1 (CR1) on erythrocytes is regulated by two CR1 alleles that differ in having genomic HindIII fragments of either 7.4 or 6.9 kb and that determine high (H allele) or low (L allele) CR1 expression, respectively, across a 10-fold range. To investigate whether the product of the L allele may contain amino(More)
Multidrug resistance (MDR) represents a major obstacle in the successful treatment of breast cancer. The MDR1 gene is a direct target of the Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway, which controls tumor development. Overexpression of P-glycoprotein, encoded by the MDR1 gene, is one of the most common causes of MDR. We found that the Frizzled 1 (FZD1) protein, which(More)
High normalized delay-bandwidth product (NDBP) and wideband slow light are achieved in an alternative row of ellipse-hole photonic crystal waveguide. Two different criteria of flat ratio are adopted. Under a constant group index criterion, a high NDBP of 0.446 with a group index of 42 and a bandwidth of 16.4 nm are obtained by plane wave expansion(More)
MicroRNAs (miRs) have been increasingly recognized as post-transcriptional regulators involved in the pathogenesis of epilepsy. Extensive evidence suggests that inhibition of tropomyosin related kinase type B (TrkB) signaling limits epileptogenesis. It has been reported that miR-204 directly targeted and downregulated TrkB protein in a variety of cancers to(More)
