Supervised training procedures for semantic parsers produce high-quality semantic parsers, but they have difficulty scaling to large databases because of the sheer number of logical constants for which they must see labeled training data. We present a technique for developing semantic parsers for large databases based on a reduction to standard supervised(More)
Existing semantic parsing research has steadily improved accuracy on a few domains and their corresponding databases. This paper introduces FreeParser, a system that trains on one domain and one set of predicate and constant symbols, and then can parse sentences for any new domain, including sentences that refer to symbols never seen during training.(More)
Increasing evidence has suggested that dysregulation of certain microRNAs (miRNAs) may contribute to tumorigenesis. microRNA-125b (miR-125b) was implicated to have close relationship with cell proliferation and differentiation, and downregulation of miR-125b was observed in various types of cancers. However, the biological function of miR-125b in bladder(More)
BACKGROUND The impact of the various elements of metabolic syndrome (MetS) on chronic kidney disease (CKD) has been conflicting. Therefore, in the present study we aimed to examine the association of MetS and its components with decreased glomerular filtration rate (GFR). METHODS A total of 75,468 urban workers who underwent annual health examinations(More)
OBJECTIVE 13-Methyltetradecanoic acid (13-MTD), a saturated branched-chain fatty acid purified from soy fermentation products, is known to induce apoptosis in many types of human cancer cells. This study was designed to investigate the molecular mechanisms involved in 13-MTD-induced apoptosis in human bladder cancer cells. METHODS AND MATERIALS MTT assay(More)
OBJECTIVES The human genome encodes many long intergenic noncoding RNAs (lincRNAs). However, their biological functions, molecular mechanisms and prognostic values associated with bladder cancer remain to be elucidated. Here we investigated a lincRNA termed linc-UBC1 (Up-regulated in bladder cancer 1) and evaluated its prognostic value in bladder cancer(More)
Metastatic prostate cancer is a leading cause of cancer-related death in men. Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are involved in tumor progression and metastasis, including in prostate cancer. There is an obvious and urgent need for effective cancer stem cells specific therapies in metastatic prostate cancer. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are an important class of pervasive(More)
BACKGROUND Pulmonary sarcomatoid carcinoma (PSC) is a rare malignancy. METHODS A total of 69 patients with PSC treated at a single institution in southern China with long-term follow-up were evaluated in this study. We analyzed the clinical characteristics, immunohistochemical profiles, epidermal growth factor receptor mutation status, K-RAS mutation(More)
Thermospermine acts in negative regulation of xylem differentiation and its deficient mutant of Arabidopsis thaliana, acaulis5 (acl5), shows excessive xylem formation and severe dwarfism. Studies of two dominant suppressors of acl5, sac51-d and sac52-d, have revealed that SAC51 and SAC52 encode a transcription factor and a ribosomal protein L10 (RPL10),(More)
AIM The association between vitamin intake and gastric cancer (GC) has been widely debated due to the relatively weak evidence. In this study, a meta-analysis of prospective and well designed observational studies were performed to explore this association. METHODS MEDLINE, Cochrane Library, and Sciencedirect were searched for studies of vitamin(More)
