BACKGROUND Decreased expression of adiponectin (ADIPOQ) is associated with an increased risk for developing colorectal cancer (CRC) in humans. This study was designed to determine whether polymorphisms present in the ADIPOQ and its type 1 receptor (ADIPOR1) could affect the risk of CRC. METHODS We measured five polymorphisms in the ADIPOQ and two(More)
CD147, also named extracelluar matrix metalloproteinase inducer (EMMPRIN), is a member of the immunoglobulin family and a glycoprotein enriched on the surface of tumor cells, which promotes invasion, metastasis, growth and survival of malignant cells, and is known to confer resistance to some chemotherapeutic drugs. To determine the possible role of CD147(More)
Expression of the imprinted genes insulin-like growth factor 2 (IGF2) and H19 depends on the methylation pattern of their differentially methylated region (DMR) located on chromosome 11p15. In the present study, we examined the imprinting status of the IGF2 gene in 120 human colorectal cancer (CRC) patients and 150 normal controls. In addition, we analyzed(More)
CD147, which belongs to the immunoglobulin superfamily, is a multifunctional glycoprotein that has been shown to increase tumor invasion, metastasis and multidrug resistance. To define the role of CD147 in invasion and metastasis more precisely, we utilized gene silencing to inhibit the expression of CD147 in pancreatic(More)
Type 2 diabetes is a common complex disorder with environmental and genetic components. The aim of the present study was to investigate the association between the polymorphisms of RAPGEF1, TP53 and NRF1 and the risk of type 2 diabetes in the Chinese Han population. We genotyped rs11243444 (RAPGEF1), rs1042522 (TP53) and rs1882095 (NRF1) in a case-control(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the correlation between the polymorphism in the DNA methyltransferase-3B (DNMT3B) gene promoter single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP)-149C→T (rs2424913) and-579G→T(rs1569686) and the genetic susceptibility to colorectal cancer in Jiangsu population. METHODS Genomic DNA was extracted from the leukocyte cell of blood samples collected(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE A T-to-C polymorphism that creates a recognition site for the MspA1 restriction enzyme in the 5' promoter region of CYP17 has been implicated as a risk factor for prostate cancer. To date, many studies have evaluated associations between the CYP17 MspA1 polymorphism and prostate cancer risk; however, the results were controversial.(More)
AIM To investigated whether fai3 as molecular adjuvant can enhance antifertility effect of contraceptive DNA vaccine pcD-Lzp3 through intranasal route. METHODS FAI was a fibrinogen-albumin-IgG receptor of group C streptococci in which exhibits adjuvant properties. The third gene fragment of FAI-fai3 (415~702 bp) has the function of mucosal adjuvant. In(More)
Fluorinated polymers generally function as antibacterial agents, but their anti-biofilm effect remains unresolved. This study investigates the efficacy of fluoropolymers containing 2,3,5,6-tetrafluoro-p-phenylenedimethanol (TFPDM) in preventing biofilm formation by Bacillus subtilis and Escherichia coli (Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial species).(More)
As a creative intelligent optimization algorithm, ant colony algorithm (ACO) has advantages such as good robustness, positive feedback and distributed computation. It is powerful to solve complicated combinational optimization problems. However, there are many defections existing in a single ACO such as slow solving speed at the primary stage, poor(More)
