Shikonin circumvents cancer drug resistance by induction of a necroptotic death
Defect in apoptotic signaling and up-regulation of drug transporters in cancer cells significantly limits the effectiveness of cancer chemotherapy. We propose that an agent inducing non-apoptotic… Expand

Abstract The Atmospheric Model Intercomparison Project (AMIP) conducted simulations by 30 different atmospheric general circulation models forced by observed sea surface temperatures for the 10-year… Expand
Complete nitrogen removal from municipal wastewater via partial nitrification by appropriately alternating anoxic/aerobic conditions in a continuous plug-flow step feed process.
This study assessed the technical feasibility of removing nitrogen from municipal wastewater by partial nitrification (nitritation) in a continuous plug-flow step feed process. Nitrite in the… Expand
Recommendation by Mining Multiple User Behaviors with Group Sparsity
Recently, some recommendation methods try to improve the prediction results by integrating information from user's multiple types of behaviors. How to model the dependence and independence between… Expand
Up-regulation of Krüppel-like factor 8 promotes tumor invasion and indicates poor prognosis for hepatocellular carcinoma.
BACKGROUND & AIMS The transcription factor Krüppel-like factor 8 (KLF8) has a role in tumor development, growth, and metastasis, but its role in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is not clear. METHODS… Expand
Honokiol induces a necrotic cell death through the mitochondrial permeability transition pore.
Previous reports have shown that honokiol induces apoptosis in numerous cancer cell lines and showed preclinical efficacies against apoptosis-resistant B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia and… Expand
An Endoplasmic Reticulum Retention Signal Located in the Extracellular Amino-terminal Domain of the NR2A Subunit of N-Methyl-d-aspartate Receptors*
N-Methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptors play critical roles in complex brain functions as well as pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases. There are many NMDA isoforms and subunit types that,… Expand

The food industry has recognized electrolyzed oxidizing water (EOW) as a promising alternative decontamination technique. However, there is not a consensus about the sanitizing mechanism of EOW. In… Expand
Satellite remote sensing of soil moisture in Illinois, United States
To examine the utility of using satellite passive microwave observations to measure soil moisture over large regions, we conducted a pilot study using the scanning multichannel microwave radiometer… Expand
Optimal design of surface networks for observation of soil moisture
By analyzing in situ soil moisture data, we show that soil moisture variability consists of two components, one of which is related to large-scale atmospheric forcing, and the other related to… Expand
