Ginsenoside Rh2 (GRh2) has been reported to have therapeutic effects on some types of cancer, but its effect on prostatic cancer has not been extensively evaluated. Here, we show that GRh2 can substantially inhibit the growth of prostatic cancer in vivo and in vitro. Moreover, the inhibition of the tumor growth appeared to result from a combined inhibitory(More)
A sensitive and specific monoclonal antibody (designated as mAb6A9) recognizing a Cu(II)-ethylenediamine-N,N,N',N'-tetraacetic acid (EDTA) complex but not metal-free EDTA was obtained by using an 1-(4-aminobenzyl)-EDTA-Cu(II) complex covalently coupled to a carrier protein as an immunogen to immunize the Balb/c mice. A mAb6A9-modified microcantilever sensor(More)
PURPOSE Vitamin D receptor (VDR) polymorphisms are considered to be risk factors for prostate cancer. However, previous case-control studies on the association between the variants of VDR and prostate cancer have shown contradictory results. Therefore, the role of VDR in prostate cancer remains unresolved. To investigate a potential correlation between VDR(More)
We investigate two different relay selection (RS) methods for precoded decode-and-forward (DF) cooperative OFDM systems: one scheme is to select the best relays for individual precoding groups (IPG-RS), and the other is to choose a single relay for the entire precoding groups (EPG-RS). We derive their diversity performances from the pairwise error(More)
In view of the limitation of low conflict detection efficiency and low resolution accuracy faced by traditional ECA (event-condition-action) rule reasoning, the new concepts, subject and object, are introduced to depict the trigger and effective object of the rule respectively, and also the post condition is introduced to express the state constraint after(More)
Cancer is a serious threat to human health. Although numerous anti-cancer drugs are available clinically, many have shown toxic side effects due to poor tumor-selectivity, and reduced effectiveness due to cancers rapid development of resistance to treatment. The development of new highly efficient and practical methods to quantify cell viability and its(More)
In this paper the estimation range (ERG) of any null subcarriers (NSC) placement is further investigated and sufficient and necessary conditions of an NSC allocation that achieves a full ERG are defined. Then, a perfect distributed NSC allocation with the NSC distance larger than coherent bandwidth is devised to fully exploit frequency diversity of wireless(More)
Development of microcantilever biosensors for small molecules was exemplified with the beta-adrenergic agonist clenbuterol and the antibiotic chloramphenicol. In this paper, antibody sulfhydrylation and protein A were used to modify the microcantilever Au surface, and the antibody activities on the microcantilever were evaluated with direct competitive(More)
In this study, we present an uncooled infrared imaging detector using knife-edge filter optical readout method. The tilt angle change of each cantilever in a focal plane array (FPA) can be simultaneously detected with a resolution of 10(-5) degrees. A deformation magnifying substrate-free microcantilever unit is specially designed. The multi-fold legs of(More)
It is a major issue to improve the thermo-mechanical sensitivity of uncooled optomechanical focal plane arrays (FPAs) for infrared imaging. This work presents an optimized multi-fold interval metallized leg (IML) configuration to increase the thermo-mechanical sensitivity of an uncooled optomechanical bi-material micro-cantilever array. The inclination(More)
