Maternally expressed gene 3 (MEG3) is suggested to function as a long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) and to play roles in various human cancers. However, the functional properties of MEG3 in ischemic stroke remain unknown. Here, we report that expression of MEG3 is upregulated following ischemia in adult mice. Moreover, cerebral ischemia recruits p53 into the MEG3(More)
This work was aimed at fabricating and characterizing poly(vinyl alcohol) films that were reinforced by nanofibrillated corn husk celluloses using a combination of chemical pretreatments and ultrasonication. The obtained nanofibrillated celluloses (NFCs) possessed a narrow width ranging from 50 to 250 nm and a high aspect ratio (394). The crystalline type(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the clinicopathology and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features of bladder paraganglioma, an extremely rare clinical entity. MATERIALS AND METHODS Five patients with bladder paraganglioma (3 males and 2 females, 27-52 years old) were retrospectively reviewed. All cases underwent baseline MRI and contrast-enhanced scans, and three(More)
According to statistics, early in the 20th century, the proportion of positive and negative air ions on the earth is 1 : 1.2. However, after more than one century, the equilibrium state of the proportion had an obvious change, which the proportion of positive and negative air ions became 1.2 : 1, leading to a surrounding of positive air ions in human living(More)
A facile route was adopted to synthesize heterostructured WO3/TiO2 photocatalysts from wood fibers through a two-steps hydrothermal method and a calcination process. The prepared WO3/TiO2-wood fibers were used as photocatalysts under UV irradiation for photodegradation of rhodamine B, methylene blue and methyl orange. In calcination process, the wood fibers(More)
In this study, amino-functionalized magnetic γ-Fe2O3/sawdust composites (MSC-NH2) were investigated as biological absorption materials for removing Cu2+ ions from aqueous solution. These composites were fabricated by precipitated γ-Fe2O3 nanoparticles on sawdust substrate and then functionalized with 1,6-hexanediamine. Characterization of MSC-NH2 was(More)
