This paper presents a novel technique—Floating Centroids Method (FCM) designed to improve the performance of a conventional neural network classifier. Partition space is a space that is used to categorize data sample after sample is mapped by neural network. In the partition space, the centroid is a point, which denotes the center of a class. In a(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are involved in the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) process and are associated with metastasis in gastric cancer (GC). MiR-338-3p has been reported to be aberrantly expressed in GC. In the present study, we show that miR-338-3p inhibited the migration and invasion of GC cells in vitro. Knocking down miR-338-3p in GC cells led to(More)
Further Division of Partition Space (FDPS) is a novel technique for neural network classification. Partition space is a space that is used to categorize data sample after sample, which are mapped by neural network learning. The data partition space, which are divided manually into few parts to categorize samples, can be considered as a line segment in the(More)
BACKGROUND Oxytropis ochrocephala Bunge, an indigenous locoweed species in China, poses great threats to livestock on grasslands. There is a need for further genetic study in the plants per se, for understanding the basis of its acclimation mechanism in various unfavorable environmental conditions and to implement effective control measures. Quantitative(More)
Breast cancer is one of the most common tumors related to death in women in many countries. In this paper, a novel neural network classification model is developed. The proposed model uses floating centroids method and particle swarm optimization algorithm with inertia weight as optimizer to improve the performance of neural network classifier. Wisconsin(More)
MicroRNAs have been implicated in the regulation of several cellular signaling pathways of colorectal cancer (CRC) cells. Although emerging evidence proves that microRNA (miR)-106a is expressed highly in primary tumor and stool samples of CRC patients; whether or not miR-106a mediates cancer metastasis is unknown. We show here that miR-106a is highly(More)
XB130 is a newly characterized adaptor protein that was reported to promote thyroid tumor growth, but its role in the progression of other kinds of cancer such as gastric cancer (GC) remains unknown. Accordingly, we investigated the association between XB130 expression and the prognosis of GC patients. The subjects were 411 patients with GC in stages I to(More)
Vasculogenic mimicry (VM) is a blood supply modality that is strongly associated with the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT), TWIST1 activation and tumor progression. We previously reported that metastasis-associated in colon cancer-1 (MACC1) induced the EMT and was associated with a poor prognosis of patients with gastric cancer (GC), but it remains(More)
