We describe the use of gold nanoparticle-oligonucleotide complexes as intracellular gene regulation agents for the control of protein expression in cells. These oligonucleotide-modified nanoparticles have affinity constants for complementary nucleic acids that are higher than their unmodified oligonucleotide counterparts, are less susceptible to degradation… (More)
In this study, single-stranded DNA functionalized gold nanoparticles (AuNP GDS) were proved to be efficient gene delivery systems for oligo antisense DNAs specific to any gene of interest without affecting normal cell physiology.
Nucleic acids act as the carriers of genetic information, and most organisms contain a type of enzymes called endonu-cleases,  which can hydrolyze the phosphodiester linkages in the nucleic acid backbone. These nucleases are important for many processes involving the replication, repair, and recom-bination of nucleic acids. Endonucleases such as DNA… (More)
To investigate the relationship between growth patterns and mandibular posterior tooth-alveolar bone complex morphology in a Chinese population with normal occlusion. Forty-five patients with normal occlusion (23 males, 22 females) were included in this study. Among these patients, 20 displayed the vertical growth pattern, and 20 had the horizontal growth… (More)
To propose a method of establishing the reference mandibular plane (MP), which could be reestablished according to the coordinates of the reference points, and then facilitate the assessment of anterior alveolar morphology using cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), sixty patients with bimaxillary protrusion were randomly selected and CBCT scans were taken.… (More)
A novel agarose hydrogel biomimetic mineralization system loaded with calcium and phosphate was used to remineralize dentin and induce the oriented densely parallel packed HA layer on defective dentin surface in vivo in a rabbit model. Firstly, the enamel of the labial surface of rabbits' incisor was removed and the dentin was exposed to oral environment.… (More)
Objectives. Laser therapy is a promising new treatment for patients with recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS). However, the clinical effect and security issue of laser therapy remain controversial. This systematic review was conducted to evaluate the clinical effectiveness and security of laser treatment in RAS patients. Methods. Five electronic databases… (More)
Background: Basilar artery occlusion (BAO) usually develops with brainstem symptoms, but rarely seizure. We report two cases of BAO presenting with unconsciousness and seizure. Case Report: Two male patient were visited to emergency room with unconscious-ness and seizure (tonic extension and generalized tonic clonic seizure) immediately after arrival. BAO… (More)
In this study, a mixture of [Zn(2)(1,3-bis[bis(2-pyridylmethyl)aminomethyl]benzene)](4+) ([Zn(2)(BBPAB)](4+)) and 11-mercaptoundecylphosphoric acid functionalized gold nanoparticles (Phos-AuNPs) is shown to be a highly sensitive colorimetric probe that can easily detect pyrophosphate (PPi) at less than 200 nM with the naked eye.
A new method for determining the vitrification rate of pottery depending on the firing temperature was devised using secondary electron images (SEI) of scanning electron microscope (SEM). Several tests were performed to establish the appropriate operating conditions of SEM and reproducibility as well as to examine the applicability of the method. The… (More)
