Imbalance between subpopulations of regulatory T cells in COPD
Background Recent evidence indicates that human regulatory T cells (Tregs) are composed of three distinct subpopulations: CD25++ CD45RA+ resting Tregs (rTregs), CD25+++ CD45RA− activated TregsExpand

Disturbance of the OPG/RANK/RANKL pathway and systemic inflammation in COPD patients with emphysema and osteoporosis
BackgroundOsteoporosis is one of the systemic features of COPD. A correlation between the emphysema phenotype of COPD and reduced bone mineral density (BMD) is suggested by some studies, however, theExpand

Interactions of miR-34b/c and TP-53 polymorphisms on the risk of nasopharyngeal carcinoma
Growing evidence indicates that tumor suppressor gene TP-53 and non-coding RNA miR-34b/c independently and/or jointly play crucial roles in carcinogenesis. We hypothesized that the polymorphisms ofExpand

Isolation and characterization of phosphate-solubilizing bacteria from betel nut (Areca catechu) and their effects on plant growth and phosphorus mobilization in tropical soils
Phosphate-solubilizing bacteria (PSB) were isolated and characterized from the rhizosphere and bulk soils of Areca catechu plants. A long history of phosphate fertilizer use has elicited a directExpand

A genetic variant in the promoter region of miR-34b/c is associated with a reduced risk of colorectal cancer
Abstract The miR-34 family members, described as potential tumor suppressors, were downregulated in colorectal cancer (CRC). Loss of miR-34 impairs TP53-mediated cell death, while overexpression ofExpand

Pri-Mir-34b/C and Tp-53 Polymorphisms are Associated With The Susceptibility of Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma
AbstractTumor suppressor p53 directly regulated the abundance of the miR-34b/c. The interaction might contribute to certain cancer. We hypothesized that rs4938723 in the promoter region ofExpand
