BACKGROUND Thyroid carcinoma is the most common endocrine malignancy and a common cancer among the malignancies of head and neck. Noninvasive and convenient biomarkers for diagnosis of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) as early as possible remain an urgent need. The aim of this study was to discover and identify potential protein biomarkers for PTC… (More)
Three different nanosensors with core-shell structures were fabricated by molecular self-assembly and evaporation techniques. Such closely packed nanoparticles exhibit fine optical properties which are useful for biochemical sensing. The refractive index sensitivity (RIS) of nanosensors was detected by varying the refractive index of the surrounding medium… (More)
Global warming and nitrogen (N) deposition have an important influence on terrestrial ecosystems; however, the influence of warming and N deposition on plant photosynthetic products and nutrient cycling in plants is not well understood. We examined the effects of 3 years of warming and N addition on the plant photosynthetic products, foliar chemistry and… (More)

The short-term prediction of EDH time series plays an exceedingly important role in several fields such as communications, navigation and so on. In this paper, an application of autoregressive integrated moving average (ARIMA) for short-term forecasting of EDH time series is presented. In order to obtain the EDH, a body of sensors such as air temperature,… (More)
Colon cancer is one of the leading causes of death in human beings. The pathogenesis of colon cancer is unclear. Recent reports indicate that Chromobox protein homolog 8 (Cbx8) and insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF1) are associated with the pathogenesis of cancer. This study aims to investigate the role of Cbx8 and IGF1 in facilitating colon cancer cell… (More)
Intestinal polyps may further develop into colon cancer; the pathogenesis is not clear. The p53 gene is an important anti-cancer gene in the body, which is suppressed in cancer. The ubiquitin E3 ligase A20 (A20) plays a role in regulating the activities of epithelial cells. This study was designed to investigate the role of the colon polyp… (More)
