The role of salicylic acid (SA) in plant responses to salinity is still a matter of controversy. To address the effect of endogenous SA variation in level and signaling on plant responses to salinity, biochemical and physiological analyses were performed on SA-altering Arabidopsis mutants including snc1 with high level of SA, transgenic line nahG with low(More)
In this paper, we presented our implementation of a counter mode AES processor based on the Xilinx Virtex2 FPGA platform. We have studied different techniques to implement the AES rijndael algorithm in reconfigurable hardware and choose the proper method to further optimize the structure of the cipher. This result in a clock frequency of 212.5 mHz and(More)
Phytoremediation is an emerging strategy for the removal of heavy metal contaminants. However, one of the prerequisite is to understand adequately plant resistant mechanisms. The present study was performed to assess the role of endogenous SA in plant response to Pb or Cd using wild-type (wt) Arabidopsis and its SA-accumulating mutant snc1, SA-reducing(More)
Salicylic acid (SA) functions in the plant response to drought stress were assessed using SA-altering Arabidopsis mutants, including snc1 (with constitutively high levels of SA) and its nahG-transformed plants (named as snc1/nahG, with a comparable SA level to the wild type), sid2 and transgenic line nahG (both with SA deficiency), and npr1-1 (with SA(More)
Myocardial infarction (MI) is defined as the deprivation of the myocardial tissue of oxygen and nutrients, resulting in the induction of inflammation and apoptosis of the cardiomyocytes. Poly (ADP‑ribose) polymerase 1 (PARP1) is a nuclear enzyme closely associated with MI, that can be activated by DNA damage. Inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) is a(More)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the diagnostic value of the ImmunoCyt test compared with urine cytology in detecting bladder cancer. A systematic literature search was performed to locate all publications reporting on the diagnostic accuracy of the ImmunoCyt test for bladder cancer. Data were extracted from 2x2 tables or calculated from(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of tadalafil monotherapy for lower urinary tract symptoms secondary to benign prostatic hyperplasia (LUTS/BPH). METHODS A comprehensive search was done to identify randomized controlled trials comparing the efficacy and safety of tadalafil for LUTS/BPH with placebos. Meta-analytical techniques were applied to(More)
Wheat MAPK member TaMPK4 responds to abiotic stresses of Pi and N deprivations and high salinity and is crucial in regulating plant tolerance to aforementioned stresses. Mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) cascades are important signal transduction modules in regulating plant responses to various environmental stresses. In this study, a wheat MAPK(More)
To study the inhibitory effect of Hedyotis diffusa on cervical cancer and its underlining biomolecular mechanism. Human cervical carcinoma nude mice xenograft was established and the mice were treated by intra-gastric administration of boiled and concentrated Hedyotis diffusa. When the tumor grew to 10 mm in diameter, the mice were randomly divided into(More)
To construct an adenovirus carrying SEA gene and regulated by telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT) and hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) promoters and investigate its anti-tumor function in vitro, as well as its role in lymphocyte production. hTERT and HIF genes were cloned into adenovirus E1A and E1B shuttle plasmids. The control vector for SEA gene(More)
