OBJECTIVE To elucidate the mechanisms undergoing the pathogenesis of PTC, this study try to find stage specific microRNAs (miRNAs) using microarray chip in stage I, II and III papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) tissues as well predict miRNAs binding target genes and their molecular functions. METHODS PTC specimens of stage I, II, and III and their paired(More)
Niche complementarity arising from divergence in resource use is an important mechanism underlying species coexistence. We hypothesized fertilization with different N forms would generate plastic divergence among species with regard to their N form uptake and preference. In the eighth year of a long-term N fertilization experiment in an alpine meadow on the(More)
Minority Uigur women residing in Xinjiang, in the northwest of China, have a high incidence of cervical carcinoma (CC; 527/100 000) and are often diagnosed young. We favor the hypothesis that Uigur women may carry different genetic factor(s) making them more susceptible to CC than majority Han (Chinese) women living in the same region. Using PCR-restriction(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY Tanshinone IIA (Tan IIA) is one of the key components of Salvia miltiorrhiza Bunge that has been widely used for various cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disorders in Asian countries. Many studies have reported that Tan IIA has antioxidative properties, but whether Tan IIA can rescue neurons from oxidative insult has never been reported.(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the association between p53 Arg72Pro polymorphism and cervical carcinomas HPV-associated cervical carcinoma in Uigur and Han women. METHODS The distribution and frequencies of p53 Arg72Pro genotypes were determined by PCR-RFLP in 152 cases of cervical carcinoma in ethnic Uigur women with 110 cases of normal control and 120 cases(More)
BACKGROUND SRY-related HMG-box 17 (SOX17) encodes a member of the SOX (SRY-related HMG-box) family of transcription factors involved in the regulation of embryonic development and in the determination of the cell fate. Recently, it was considered as a tumor suppressor gene to inhibit canonical Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway in several malignancies.(More)
BACKGROUND Surveillance conventional coronary angiography (CCA) is recommended after stent supported percutaneous coronary intervention due to the unpredictable occurrence of in-stent restenosis (ISR). We explored the ability of 64-slice computed tomography angiography (CTA) to detect ISR after stenting of the coronary artery and analyzed the factors(More)
A combination of Fructus psoraleae (3.4 g/kg) and dihydroartemisinin (60 mg/(kg x d)) was used for 7 d in mice infected with Cryptosporidium parvum infection induced by oral administration of dexamethasone. The results indicated that number of Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts in feces, proportion of CD4+, CD3+ T lymphocytes in blood, serum IFN-gamma, and(More)
Rats with Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP) were established by hypodermic injection of dexamethasone and treated by Brucea javanica combined with Fructus Psoraleae 2 ml (Brucea javanica 0.12 mg and Fructus Psoraleae 1.0 mg) per rat per day for 7 days or 14 days. The effect of cyst-killing and the pathological change were observed under transmission(More)
