In order to understand how tumor cells can escape immune surveillance mechanisms and thus develop antitumor therapies, it is critically important to investigate the mechanisms by which the immune system interacts with the tumor microenvironment. In our current study, IL-17 deficiency results in reduced melanoma tumor size, diminished numbers of(More)
BACKGROUND The number and ratio of positive lymph nodes are important prognostic factors in gastric cancer, but there is little data reported in hypopharyngeal cancer. METHODS Medical data from 81 patients with hypopharyngeal cancer undergoing radical hypopharyngectomy and cervical lymph node dissection were reviewed. RESULTS The median survival time(More)
Telomeres are the end structures of chromosomes in mammalian cells; they play a pivotal role in maintaining the stability of the chromosome and become shorter with each cell division. However, several types of tumor cells express telomerase in very high levels to overcome this crisis and achieve the ability to proliferate endlessly. The telomerase(More)
Alpha-7 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (alpha7nAChR) played an important role during the process of inflammation, and was a potential therapeutic target for many diseases, including Alzheimer's disease, endotoxaemia, hypertension etc. However, it was difficult to express alpha7nAChR on commonly used host cells because of the lack of the chaperone protein(More)
A multifunctional vitual power quality monitoring system is designed and implemented in LabVIEW environment. S-transform is introduced and applied to perform time-frequency analysis on power quality disturbances. The root mean square(RMS) value, the waveforms of three-phase voltage and current, the harmonic components, the total harmonic distortion(THD) and(More)
In order to understand how tumor cells can escape immune surveillance mechanisms and thus develop antitumor therapies, it is critically important to investigate the mechanisms by which the immune system interacts with the tumor microenvironment. In our current study, we found that chemokine receptor 5 (CCR5) neutralization resulted in reduced melanoma tumor(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the apoptosis of capilliposide against human nasopharyngeal cancer CNE-2 cells and to study its primary mechanisms. MATERIALS AND METHODS Vectors pSilencer-PUMA-small interfering RNA (siRNA) were constructed to transcribe functional siRNA specially targeting PUMA. The interfering plasmids were used to transfect CNE-2 cells with(More)
Regular expression matching is considered important as it lies at the heart of many networking applications using deep packet inspection (DPI) techniques. For example, modern networking intrusion detection systems (NIDSs) typically accomplish regular expression matching using deterministic finite automata (DFA) algorithm. However, DFA suffers from the high(More)
Radiation leads to a rapid burst of reactive oxygen species (ROS), which is considered to be one of the major causes of radiation-induced injury. ROS have previously been shown to induce changes in cytosolic Ca²⁺ ([Ca²⁺]i) including [Ca²⁺]i oscillation. However, the role of radiation in [Ca²⁺]i oscillation is poorly understood. The purpose of this study was(More)
