A codon optimized DNA sequence coding for foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) capsid protein complex epitopes of VP1 amino acid residues 21-40, 135-160, and 200-213 was genetically fused to the N-terminal end of a 6x His-tagged cholera toxin B subunit (CTB) gene with the similar synonymous codons preferred by the methylotropic yeast Hansenula polymorpha.(More)
The human glycoprotein, stanniocalcin 2 (STC2) plays multiple roles in several tumor types, however, its function and clinical significance in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remain unclear. In this study, we detected STC2 expression by quantitative real-time PCR and found STC2 was upregulated in HCC tissues, correlated with tumor size and multiplicity of(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a new class of prognostic and diagnostic biomarkers for many cancers. Recent studies have shown that miRNAs are highly stable in plasma/serum. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of miR-421 in osteosarcoma. We found that the serum expression levels of miR-421 were significantly higher in osteosarcoma patients than those(More)
OBJECTIVE Previous studies indicated that the relationship between lysyl oxidase-like 1 (LOXL1) gene polymorphisms and primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) remains inconsistent. In the present study, we aimed to perform a meta-analysis to investigate the association of LOXL1 polymorphisms with POAG risk. METHODS Literatures were electronically searched in(More)
Insulin or insulin like signaling (IIS) pathway is a crucial pathway in Caenorhabditis elegans associated with mediating longevity, and stress resistance. Regulators of G protein signaling (RGS) also modulate stress resistance and longevity in multiple in vitro and in vivo models. However, the mechanism underlying RGS mediating stress resistance and(More)
