AIMS We investigated the effect of the water extract of Salacia oblonga (SOE), an ayurvedic antidiabetic and antiobesity medicine, on obesity and diabetes-associated cardiac hypertrophy and discuss the role of modulation of cardiac angiotensin II type 1 receptor (AT(1)) expression in the effect. METHODS SOE (100 mg/kg) was given orally to male Zucker(More)
Memory T cells present a unique challenge in transplantation. Although memory T cells express robust immune responses to invading pathogens, they may be resistant to the effects of immunosuppressive therapies used to prolong graft survival. In previous studies, we found that compound K, the synthesized analogue of highly unsaturated fatty acids from Isatis(More)
Epidermal growth factor receptor-tyrosine kinase inhibitors (EGFR‑TKIs) have shown promising effects against the growth of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cells harboring EGFR mutations (EGFR‑mts). However, many patients with NSCLC that are accepted for EGFR‑TKI treatment followed by chemotherapy possess an unknown EGFR status including wild-type EGFR(More)
Post buckling problem of a large deformed beam is analyzed using canonical dual finite element method (CD-FEM). The feature of this method is to choose correctly the canonical dual stress so that the original non-convex potential energy functional is reformulated in a mixed complementary energy form with both displacement and stress fields, and a pure(More)
A general and facile one-pot template-free hydrothermal strategy has been developed to synthesize various metal oxide (TiO2, SnO2 and α-Fe2O3) hollow spheres with unified morphologies. The formation of hollow structure involves a trifluoroacetic acid (TFA)-assisted Ostwald ripening process. Photocatalytic activities of the as-prepared TiO2 product are(More)
BACKGROUND SUMO-activating enzyme subunit 2 (SAE2) is the sole E1-activating enzyme required for numerous important protein SUMOylation, abnormal of which is associated with carcinogenesis. SAE2 inactivation was recently reported to be a therapeutic strategy in cancers with Myc overexpression. However, the roles of SAE2 in small cell lung cancer (SCLC) are(More)
Micro-grid has gradually become a new method for developed countries to solve many problems in the traditional power system. In this paper, the concept of micro-grid and energy management system is introduced firstly, and then the important roles of the application of energy management technology in micro-grid system are described. Combined the literature,(More)
Since a double-walled carbon nanotube (DWCNT)-based rotary motor driven by a uniform temperature field was proposed in 2014, how to control quantitatively the rotation of the rotor is still an open question. In this work, we present a mathematical relationship between the rotor's speed and interaction energy. Essentially, the increment of interaction energy(More)
Rotation of the inner tube in a double-walled carbon nanotube (DWCNT) system with a fixed outer tube is investigated and found to be inducible by a relatively high uniform temperature (say, 300 K). We also found the mechanism of a gradientless temperature-driven rotating motor lies in the inner tube losing its geometric symmetry in a high-temperature field.(More)
