OBJECTIVES To establish a taxol-resistant cell line of human ovarian carcinoma (A2780/Taxol) and investigate its biological features. METHODS The drug-resistant cell line (A2780/Taxol) was established by continuous stepwise selection with increasing concentrations of Taxol. Cell morphology was assessed by microscopy and growth curves were generated with(More)
The assessment of ecological risk in genetically modified (GM) biological systems is critically important for decision-making and public acceptance. Cellular automata (CA) provide a potential modeling and simulation framework for representing relationships and interspecies interactions both temporally and spatially. In this paper, a simple subsystem(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the correlation of gestational age (GA) with carboxyterminal propeptide of type I procollagen (PICP), deoxypyridinoline (DPD), and bone sound of speed (SOS) in appropriate-for-gestational-age (AGA) neonates, as well as the relationship between bone turnover markers and bone SOS. METHODS Sixty-five AGA neonates were included in the(More)
OBJECTIVE To measure the expression of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) and protein kinase B (PKB) in liver tissue among low-birth-weight newborn rats treated with L-arginine (L-Arg) in early life, and to investigate the effect of L-Arg on insulin resistance. METHODS Eighteen pregnant rats were randomly divided into three groups: control, model and(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine serum adiponectin level in preterm infants and to evaluate the relationship between serum adiponectin and bone mineral density in preterm infants. METHODS Seventy-two appropriate-for-gestational-age neonates were classified into three groups according to their gestational ages: early preterm (31-33(+6) weeks, 13 cases), late preterm(More)
