Circulating microRNA-1 as a potential novel biomarker for acute myocardial infarction.
Recent studies have revealed the role of microRNAs (miRNAs) in a variety of basic biological and pathological processes and the association of miRNA signatures with human diseases. Circulating miRNAsExpand

A La-related protein modulates 7SK snRNP integrity to suppress P-TEFb-dependent transcriptional elongation and tumorigenesis.
The general transcription factor P-TEFb stimulates RNA polymerase II elongation and cotranscriptional processing of pre-mRNA. Contributing to a functional equilibrium important for growth control, aExpand

Changes of serum omentin-1 levels in normal subjects and in patients with impaired glucose regulation and with newly diagnosed and untreated type 2 diabetes.
AIMS To assay the levels of serum omentin-1 in subjects with different levels of glucose regulation and to analyze the relationship between serum omentin-1 levels and body mass index (BMI),Expand

Selective enhancement filters for nodules, vessels, and airway walls in two- and three-dimensional CT scans.
We developed three selective enhancement filters for dot, line, and plane which can simultaneously enhance objects of a specific shape (for example, dot-like nodules) and suppress objects of other shapes ( for example, line-like vessels) in 2D and 3D medical images. Expand

Nox2 and Rac1 Regulate H2O2-Dependent Recruitment of TRAF6 to Endosomal Interleukin-1 Receptor Complexes
ABSTRACT Reactive oxygen species (ROS) generated by NADPH oxidases (Nox) have been implicated in the regulation of signal transduction. However, the cellular mechanisms that link Nox activation withExpand

Regulation of adiponectin and leptin secretion and expression by insulin through a PI3K-PDE3B dependent mechanism in rat primary adipocytes.
Adiponectin is intimately involved in the regulation of insulin sensitivity, carbohydrate and lipid metabolism, and cardiovascular functions. The circulating concentration of adiponectin is decreasedExpand

Elevated expression of vascular endothelial growth factor correlates with increased angiogenesis and decreased progression‐free survival among patients with low‐grade neuroendocrine tumors
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a critical proangiogenic factor in solid tumors. However, its expression and role in human neuroendocrine tumor development and progression remainsExpand
