N-α-Acetyltransferase 10 protein (Naa10p/ARD1), the catalytic subunit of N-acetyltransferase A, catalyzes both N-α-acetylation and ε-acetylation, as well as autoacetylation. Naa10p is involved in controlling cell proliferation, apoptosis, autophagy and neuronal development. Our group and others had reported prognostic value of Naa10p expression in various(More)
To assess whether habitual sleep duration or insomnia increase the incidence of hypertension. PubMed, EMBASE and Cochrane were searched without language restriction. Prospective cohort studies of adults with at least a 1-year follow-up duration were included. Habitual sleep duration or symptoms of insomnia were assessed as baseline exposure, and the outcome(More)
A recombinant inbred line (RIL) population was produced based on a wide cross between the rapid-cycling and self-compatible genotypes L58, a Caixin vegetable type, and R-o-18, a yellow sarson oil type. A linkage map based on 160 F7 lines was constructed using 100 Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), 130 AFLP®, 27 InDel, and 13 publicly available SSR(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a world-wide public health problem. Hypertension is both a cause and a complication of CKD, and a risk factor for progression of kidney disease. The effect of salt intake on blood pressure (BP) and the salt sensitivity in non-dialysis patients with CKD were studied. METHODS One hundred and thirty non-dialysis(More)
N-α-Acetyltransferase 10 protein (Naa10p, also called arrest-defective 1), the catalytic subunit of N-acetyltransferase A, is a critical regulator of cell death and proliferation. Naa10p is also shown to regulate cancer metastasis by inhibiting cell motility; however, its role in cancer metastasis is not fully understood. In this study, we found that high(More)
Rice sheath blight is one of the most important rice diseases in the world and the succinate dehydrogenase inhibitor fungicide flutolanil has potential for its control. In this study, a total of 112 Rhizoctonia solani isolates from Jiangsu province in China were characterized for their baseline sensitivity to flutolanil. The baseline sensitivity curve was(More)
INTRODUCTION Combination of multiple biomarkers representing distinct aspects of tumor biology will have a better prognostic value. This study was to identify prognostic subgroups of colon adenocarcinoma by combined analysis of synuclein-gamma (SNCG), a human homologue of piwi (Hiwi), phosphatase of regenerating liver-3 (PRL-3), arrest-defective protein 1,(More)
BACKGROUND Phosphatase of regenerating liver-3 (PRL-3) plays a causative role in tumor metastasis, but the underlying mechanisms are not well understood. In our previous study, we observed that PRL-3 could decrease tyrosine phosphorylation of integrin beta1 and enhance activation of ERK1/2 in HEK293 cells. Herein we aim to explore the association of PRL-3(More)
Stem cell genetics research may be critical to our understanding of carcinogenesis, as both stem cells and cancer cells possess the ability to self-renew. Recent discoveries have indicated that the piwi family of genes plays an essential role in stem cell self-renewal in diverse organisms. The hiwi gene, the human homolog of the piwi family, participates in(More)
Phosphatase of regenerating liver-3 (PRL-3) is overexpressed in several human cancers and associated with tumor progression, invasion and metastasis. However, the correlation between PRL-3 expression and clinical outcome in ovarian cancer has not been studied. In the present study, we investigated the expression of PRL-3 in 119 ovarian cancers and 30 normal(More)
