We aimed to study the post-translational regulation of CD151 by the microRNA miR-152. CD151 is highly expressed in gastric cancer (GC) and has been shown to accelerate GC by enhancing invasion and metastasis; however, its regulation is still unclear. Our results showed decreased expression of miR-152 in GC tissue samples and cell lines. In addition, miR-152(More)
Muskrat is a seasonal breeder, males of which secret musk from paired perineal scented glands found beneath the skin at the ventral base of the tail for attracting female during the breeding season. The aim of this study was to investigate the seasonal changes of expression of androgen receptor (AR) in the scented gland of muskrat during the breeding and(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the presence of nerve growth factor (NGF) and its receptors tyrosine kinase A (TrkA) and p75 in the ovaries of the wild ground squirrels during the breeding and nonbreeding seasons. In the breeding period, NGF, TrkA and p75 were immunolocalized in granulosa cells, thecal cells, interstitial cells and luteal cells(More)
Silica coated magnetite (Fe3O4@SiO2) core-shell nanoparticles (NPs) with controlled silica shell thicknesses were prepared by a modified Stöber method using 20 nm hydrophilic Fe3O4 NPs as seeds. The core-shell NPs were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), high-resolution TEM (HRTEM), selected area electron(More)
Increasing atmospheric levels of CO2, in large part due to anthropogenic combustion of energy yielding hydrocarbons, portends significant if not catastrophic weather related events. One strategy to stabilize atmospheric CO2 levels is to capture the post-combustion product for disposal or, preferably, commercial use. The latter case, in particular, requires(More)
Two-ray model is the basic line-of-sight propagation model for radio-wave propagation. Fermat's principle of Geometrical optics theory shows that the optical ray path is the minimum distance, which can make the propagation problem of radio-wave into the optimization problem of path function. Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) with the characteristic of(More)
The capabilities to tune the conduction properties of materials by doping or electric fields are essential for the design of electronic devices. However, in two-dimensional materials substitutional doping has been achieved in only a few systems, such as Nb substitutional doping in MoS2. Surface charge transfer is still one of the popular ways to control(More)
Multiple nanocrystalline rare-earth hexaborides La1-xBaxB6 have been synthesized via a single step solid-state reaction. The Ba doping effects on crystal structure, grain morphology, magnetic and optical absorption properties were investigated using XRD, FESEM, HRTEM, SQUID magnetometry and optical measurements. The results show that all the Ba-doped(More)
Large area patterned boron nanocones with low turn-on electric field of 2.8 V microm(-1) and low threshold electric field of 3.8 V microm(-1) were synthesized by a pre-manipulation to pattern the catalyst with a grid template as mask. The good field emission performance of patterned boron nanocones arise from the decreased screening effect and a favorable(More)
Upgrade of a commercial ultra-high vacuum four-probe scanning tunneling microscopy system for atomic resolution capability and thermal stability is reported. To improve the mechanical and thermal performance of the system, we introduced extra vibration isolation, magnetic damping, and double thermal shielding, and we redesigned the scanning structure and(More)
