BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE Glioma cells can be induced in vitro from low differentiation state to high differentiation state with differentiation-inducing agents, as our previous studies have showed. However, the relevant molecular mechanisms remained unclear. This paper was to establish differentiation-inducing gene expression pedigree of glioma cells and(More)
AIM Gene therapy represents a promising therapeutic strategy for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). To improve the ratio of killing efficacy on tumor cells to side-effect on normal cells, we constructed an oncolytic adenovirus vector, AdSu-hE, expressing the human endostatin (hE) gene, in which the chimeric promoter of human epidermal growth factor receptor 2(More)
NAC transcription factors belong to a unique class of transcription factors in plants. The common characteristics of the NAC proteins are the presence of a conserved NAC domain, comprising of about 150 amino acids in N-terminals and a highly variable transcriptional regulation region in C-terminals. Extensive studies have revealed that NAC transcription(More)
Forkhead-box (FOX) transcription factors comprise a large gene family that contains more than 50 members in man. Extensive studies have revealed that they not only have functions in control of growth and development, but also play important roles in different diseases, especially in cancer. However, biological functions for most of the members in the FOX(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of intramyocardial administration of basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) on the angiogenesis and on the expression of bFGF and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in infarcted myocardium. METHODS Twenty-four mongrel dogs were randomized into control group and therapeutic group. Acute myocardial infarction was made(More)
Refined oil mixtures can be quantified using terahertz-absorption-coefficient spectra and dualistic linear regression fitting. However, when this method was used to quantify mixtures of 90# and 97# gasolines, the absolute error between the real and fitted value was large (25%), and this was due to the component similarity between 90# and 97# gasolines. To(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effects of intratympanic methylprednisolone injection by microcatheter in diabetics with a sudden hearing loss. METHODS From July 2005 to November 2009, 113 diabetics with a sudden hearing loss within an onset of 10 days at our department were recruited. But they received no previous intervention and were assigned to treatment(More)
Aromatic methyl ketones and cyclic asymmetric ketones underwent hydrophosphorylation with P-stereogenic H-P species in the presence of potassium carbonate to produce P,C-stereogenic tertiary α-hydroxyl phosphinates in excellent yields with up to 99 : 1 dr. The diastereoselectivity was induced by a reversible conversion of less stable stereomer of product to(More)
Privacy and anonymity have become a critical issue for the deployment of vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs). Pseudonym certificates are the state-of-the-art approach for secure and privacy-friendly message authentication in VANETs. However, most proposed schemes focus on the strategy of pseudonym changing and the privacy among vehicles. Privacy towards(More)
