Clonorchis sinensis is a food-borne zoonotic parasite that resides in bile ducts and causes clonorchiasis, which may result in cholelithiasis, cholecystitis, hepatic fibrosis, and liver tumors. Although total excretory secretory products (ESP) of C. sinensis adults induce hepatic fibrosis in vivo in rats, the causative mechanism is not well understood. To(More)
The purpose of this research was to study the roles of chloride intracellular channel protein 1 (CLIC1) and heat shock protein 27 (HSP27) in the clinical pathology of lung adenocarcinoma and to explore whether the expression of CLIC1 and HSP27 can be used as independent factors for the prediction of recurrence and prognosis after radical resection of lung(More)
Increasing evidence shows that calpain-mediated proteolytic processing of a selective number of proteins plays an important role in neuronal apoptosis. Study of calpain-mediated cleavage events and related functions may contribute to a better understanding of neuronal apoptosis and neurodegenerative diseases. We, therefore, investigated the role of calpain(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify ubiquitinated proteins from complex human multiple myeloma (MM) U266 cells, a malignant disorder of differentiated human B cells. METHODS Employing a globally proteomic strategy combining of immunoprecipitation, LC-MS/MS and SCX-LC-MS analysis to identified ubiquitination sites, which were identified by detecting signature peptides(More)
14-3-3 proteins have been shown to regulate the actin cytoskeleton remodeling, cell adhesion and migration. In this study, we identified ezrin, a cross-linker between plasma membrane and actin cytoskeleton, as a novel 14-3-3ζ interacting partner. The direct interaction between 14-3-3ζ and ezrin was validated in the cells and by in vitro assays. We showed(More)
Streptococcus is a genus of spherical Gram-positive bacteria responsible for many cases of meningitis, bacterial pneumonia, endocarditis, erysipelas, and necrotizing fasciitis. To survive in the host environment with limited free iron available, Streptococcus species have developed various mechanisms to uptake iron as an essential nutrient. They can(More)
According to the Central Dogma, genes in genome can be transcribed and translated into proteins to perform a variety of biological functions. Since proteins are the actual functional molecules in almost all physiological processes, discovering new proteins is essential to understand the nature of various biological phenomena. So far, the Human Ge-nome(More)
We describe a novel route for the conversion of hexagonal Sb(2)Te(3) nanoplates into nanorings driven by growth temperature in a simple solvothermal process. The transmission electron microscopy was employed to investigate systemically the morphology, size, crystallinity, and microstructure of the as-prepared products. The experiments indicated that the(More)
Our objectives are to investigate the role of MMP-9 in cold exposure-induced stroke and assess the preventive effect of doxycycline, a total of 200 rats were assigned to a control group, sham group, 2-kidney, 2-clip (2K-2C) group, and doxycycline-received 2K-2C group (2K-2C+doxy) (N=50, each), and subsequently, each group were randomly assigned to 2 groups:(More)
