The Mitchell Theory implies the proton motive force Deltap across the inner mitochondrial membrane as the energy-rich intermediate of oxidative phosphorylation. Deltap is composed mainly of an electrical (DeltaPsi(m)) and a chemical part (DeltapH) and generated by the respiratory chain complexes I, III and IV. It is consumed mostly by the ATP synthase(More)
Basigin, which has four isoforms, has been demonstrated to be involved in progression of various human cancers. The aim of this study was to examine the prognostic value of basigin-2 protein expression in epithelial ovarian cancer. Furthermore, the function of basigin-2 in ovarian cancer was further investigated in cell culture models. Immunohistochemistry(More)
Sclerotinia disease, caused by Sclerotinia sclerotiorum, is one of the most serious plant diseases in China. Research on the mechanism of disease resistance to S. sclerotiorum will help solve control problems. In this study, near-isogenic lines were first used in combination with the proteomic technique. A comparison of protein expression profiles in a(More)
Cigarette smoking is the major cause of preventable death and morbidity throughout the world. Many compounds are present in tobacco, but nicotine is the primary addictive one. Nicotine exerts its physiological and pharmacological roles in the brain through neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs), which are ligand-gated ion channels consisting of(More)
OBJECTIVE To record the MR imaging features of primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) and compare these features in monofocal and multifocal disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-one cases of monofocal disease were compared to five cases of multifocal disease. All patients were examined by non-enhanced and contrast-enhanced MRI. Tumor location,(More)
The influence of protein phosphorylation on the kinetics of cytochrome c oxidase was investigated by applying Western blotting, mass spectrometry, and kinetic measurements with an oxygen electrode. The isolated enzyme from bovine heart exhibited serine, threonine, and/or tyrosine phosphorylation in various subunits, except subunit I, by using phosphoamino(More)
The Forkhead box M1 (FOXM1), an important regulator of cell differentiation and proliferation, is overexpressed in a number of aggressive human carcinomas. The purpose of this study was to examine the expression levels of FOXM1 in epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC), to identify the relationship between FOXM1 expression and patient survival, and to investigate(More)
Recent advances in understanding fish locomotion with robotic devices have included the use of flapping foil robots that swim at a constant swimming speed. However, the speed of even steadily swimming live fishes is not constant because the fish center of mass oscillates axially throughout a tail beat cycle. In this paper, we couple a linear motor that(More)
Clear cell tumor of the lung is a rare and benign pulmonary tumor; only sporadic cases have been reported. Here, we report the case of a 38-year-old man with recurrent cough, blood-streaked sputum and left chest pain. A chest computed tomography scan showed a round, homogeneous pulmonary mass in the left lower lobe, which exhibited intense heterogeneous(More)
One of the most-studied unsteady locomotor behaviors exhibited by fishes is the c-start escape response. Although the kinematics of these responses have been studied extensively and two well-defined kinematic stages have been documented, only a few studies have focused on hydrodynamic patterns generated by fishes executing escape behaviors.
