The ultrasensitive bio-barcode amplification assay (BCA) technique was developed for the specific detection of the outer-core protein VP7 of bluetongue virus (BTV). The target antigen VP7 was first captured by gold nanoparticles (GNPs) coated with polyclonal antibodies. Magnetic microparticles (MMP) coated with VP7 monoclonal antibody were then added to(More)
The whole blood immuno-adsorption (WBIA) system, using an adsorbent to remove pathogenic antibodies of Myasthenia Gravis (MG), was studied. Cellulose-tryptophan adsorbent was synthesized and purified in our lab. Experimental autoimmune myasthenia gravis (EAMG) rabbits were passively transferred with immunoglobulin from patients with myasthenia gravis. The(More)
Osteopontin (OPN) is a protein linked to tumor growth, progression and metastasis of cancers. However, its role in the progression of central nervous system (CNS) embryonal tumors such as atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor (AT/RT), medulloblastoma (MB) and primitive neuroepithelial tumors (PNET) remains elusive. In this study, we investigated the value of OPN(More)
BACKGROUND The significance of mammalian target of rapamycin complex 1 (mTORC1) activity in the maintenance of cancer stem cells (CSCs) remains controversial. Previous findings showed that mTORC1 activation depleted the population of leukemia stem cells in leukemia, while maintaining the stemness in pancreatic CSCs. The purpose of this study was to examine(More)
Background: Previous studies have demonstrated that therapeutic ultrasound (TUS) ameliorates angiogenesis on ischemic hind limb animals and also promotes human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) tube formation. Apoptosis plays a key role in post-ischemic angiogenesis pathogenesis. However, the mechanisms underlying the anti-apoptotic effects of TUS(More)
Therapeutic angiogenic effects of low-intensity ultrasound have been reported in endothelial cells and animal models of hind limb ischemia. It has been shown that the proliferation, migration, and tube formation of endothelial cells play critical roles in angiogenesis. The purpose of this study was to determine the underlying mechanism of low-intensity(More)
Pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) have been shown to promote proliferation and regeneration in the damaged tissue. Here, we examined whether PEMF therapy improved postnatal neovascularization using murine model of hindlimb ischemia, and the underlying cellular/molecular mechanisms were further investigated. Hindlimb ischemia was induced by unilateral(More)
