Unlike many other human solid tumors, ovarian tumors express many epithelial markers at a high level for cell growth and local invasion. The phosphoprotein Pinin plays a key role in epithelial cell identity. We showed that clinical ovarian tumors and ovarian cancer cell lines express a high level of Pinin when compared with normal ovarian tissues and(More)
Using " A " shares accessible only to local investors (who account for 99% of stock investors in China), this paper tests if short-horizon contrarian and intermediate-horizon investment strategies generate abnormal profits. We find statistically significant abnormal profits for both the arbitrage portfolio-investment strategies. Detailed analysis indicates(More)
Panax notoginseng (Burk.) F.H. Chen is one of the most highly valued medicinal plants in the world. The major bioactive molecules are triterpene saponins, which are also known as ginsenosides. However, its large genome size has hindered the assembly of a draft genome by whole genome sequencing. Hence, genomic and transcriptomic details about P. notoginseng,(More)
A polymer-coated surface acoustic wave (SAW)-based chemical sensor for organophosphorous compound sensing at extremely low concentrations was developed, in which a dual-delay-line oscillator coated with fluoroalcoholpolysiloxane (SXFA) acted as the sensor element. Response mechanism analysis was performed on the SXFA-coated chemical sensor, resulting in the(More)
A surface-acoustic-wave (SAW) gas sensor with a low detection limit and fast response for volatile organic compounds (VOCs) based on the condensate-adsorption effect detection is developed. In this sensor a gas chromatography (GC) column acts as the separator element and a dual-resonator oscillator acts as the detector element. Regarding the surface(More)
Tumor necrosis-associated factor 6 (TRAF6) performs critical roles in mediating apoptosis-associated inflammatory processes in multiple cell types, but its role in cerebral ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury is still unclear. In the present study, we established a middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) reperfusion model in rat, and evaluated both the(More)
Nowadays, the knowledge in DNA methylation-mediated gene regulation has shed light on the understanding of virus-host interplay in the context of genome alteration. It has also been shown that HIV is able to change the DNA methylation pattern by DNA methyltransferases and such changes can be correlated with the progression of AIDS. In this study, we have(More)
A new micro gyroscope based on the surface acoustic wave (SAW) gyroscopic effect was developed. The SAW gyroscopic effect is investigated by applying the surface effective permittivity method in the regime of small ratios of the rotation velocity and the frequency of the SAW. The theoretical analysis indicates that the larger velocity shift was observed(More)
Acute mountain sickness (AMS) is the most common high altitude illnesses experienced during rapid ascent to a higher altitude without prior acclimation. It is mainly characterized by a headache which may be accompanied with nausea, vomiting, anorexia, dizziness, lethargy, fatigue, and sleep disturbance. If not diagnosed and treated in a timely manner, AMS(More)
