This study was conducted to compare the association of Gaussian and non-Gaussian magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-derived parameters with histologic grade and MIB-1 (Ki-67 labeling) index (MI) in brain glioma. Sixty-five patients with pathologically confirmed glioma, who underwent diffusion-weighted MRI with 2 b values (0, 1000 s/mm2) and 22 b values (≤5000(More)
We have constructed 2 small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) specifically targeting homogenous 3D and 2B1 regions of 7 serotypes of the foot and mouth disease virus (FMDV) and tested the ability of siRNAs to inhibit virus replication in baby hamster kidney (BHK-21) cells and suckling mice. In this study, we generated transgenic mouse models integrating short(More)
By using bioinformatics computer programs, all foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) genome sequences in public-domain databases were analyzed. Based on the results of homology analysis, 2 specific small interfering RNA (siRNA) targeting homogenous 3D and 2B1 regions of 7 serotypes of FMDV were prepared and 2 siRNA-expression vectors, pSi-FMD2 and pSi-FMD3,(More)
Heme is a key cofactor in aerobic life, both in eukaryotes and prokaryotes. Because of the high reactivity of ferrous protoporphyrin IX, the reactions of heme in cells are often carried out through heme-protein complexes. Traditionally studies of heme-binding proteins have been approached on a case by case basis, thus there is a limited global view of the(More)
This study was designed to determine if cerebral blood flow (CBF) derived from arterial spin labeling (ASL) perfusion imaging could be used to quantitatively evaluate the microvascular density (MVD) of brain gliomas on a “point-to-point” basis by matching CBF areas and surgical biopsy sites as accurate as possible. The study enrolled 47 patients with(More)
