The long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) metastasis-associated lung adenocarcinoma transcript 1 (MALAT1) has been recently shown to be dysregulated in several cancers. However, the mechanisms underlying the role of MALAT1 in breast cancer remain unclear. Herein, we showed that MALAT1 was aberrantly increased in breast cancer tissues and cells. MALAT1-siRNA(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the effects of β-(1,3/1,6)-d-glucan on dendritic cells (DCs) maturation, cytotoxic T lymphocyte responses and the molecular mechanisms of its transition. METHODS AND RESULTS Human monocyte-derived DCs were matured using yeast-derived particulate β-glucan (WGP) or a mix of TNF-α, IL-1β and IL-6 ("Conv mix"). Multicolor flow cytometry(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM To evaluate image quality and radiation dosage in coronary CT angiography using 80-kVp tube voltage combined with low-concentration contrast media (CM) and iterative reconstruction (IR) for coronary CT angiography (CCTA) and employing dual-source CT without heart-rate control. METHODS 154 patients were randomly assigned to Group A(More)
