GATA-4 is an important transcription factor involved in several developmental processes of the heart, such as cardiac myocyte proliferation, differentiation and survival. The precise mechanisms underlying the regulation of GATA-4 remain unclear, this is especially true for the mechanisms that mediate the post-transcriptional regulation of GATA-4. Here, we(More)
A series of amino acid ester derivatives containing 5-fluorouracil were synthesized using 1-ethyl-3-(3-dimethylaminopropyl)carbodiimide hydrochloride (EDC*HCl) and N-hydroxybenzotriazole (HOBt) as a coupling agent. The structures of the products were assigned by NMR, MS, IR etc. The in vitro antitumor activity tests against leukaemia HL-60 and liver cancer(More)
Revealing the key molecules regulating the stress-response pathways in human cells is an intriguing problem. Chaperones, such as glucose-regulated protein 78 (GRP78) and heat shock protein 27 (HSP27), are important molecules for protecting the viability of human cells; however, it remains to be further clarified whether the molecules differentially modulate(More)
Phosphorus (P) is a limiting macronutrient for diatom growth and productivity in the ocean. Much effort has been devoted to the physiological response of marine diatoms to ambient P change, however, the whole-genome molecular mechanisms are poorly understood. Here, we utilized RNA-Seq to compare the global gene expression patterns of a marine diatom(More)
