N-myc downstream-regulated gene 2 (NDRG2) is believed to be involved in cell growth events. However, its exact function is still unknown. To elucidate the role of this gene, we used an anti-Ndrg2 monoclonal antibody in immunohistochemistry and immunofluorescence assays to analyze the expression pattern of Ndrg2 protein in mouse embryos at various(More)
AIM To investigate the expression of NDRG2 and mutation of the entire coding region of NDRG2 in human liver and pancreatic cancers, and to further discuss the possible causes of NDRG2 distinct expression patterns. METHODS Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) was used to analyze the expression of NDRG2 mRNA in 37 fresh cancer specimens(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the characteristics of the diagnostic parameters of acute respiratory distress syndrome/multiple organ dysfunction syndrome on plateau (H-ARDS/MODS) and compare the accuracy of the three MODS scoring criteria in predicting the outcome of syndrome. METHODS Five hundred and forty cases fulfilling the criteria of MODS were divided into(More)
Arachidonic acid (AA) in the cell membrane produces a variety of metabolites by different enzymatic pathways. These lipid metabolites, along with other mediators, play an important role in the inflammatory processes. Many of them can bind directly to the receptors on the sensory endings and initiate electrical impulses to be transmitted to the central(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the diagnostic parameters of acute respiratory distress syndrome/multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (ARDS/MODS) at high altitude (H-ARDS/MODS) with that on plain, and to establish a more practical diagnostic criterion of H-ARDS/MODS. METHODS Five hundred and five cases fulfilled the criteria for the diagnosis of ARDS/MODS were(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the vasorelaxing effect and mechanism of idoxifene (a new estrogen receptor modulator) on human internal mammary artery (HIMA). HIMA segments were harvested from men during coronary artery bypass grafting surgery. Patients with diabetes mellitus, hypercholesterolemia, hypertension, or smoking habit were excluded.(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the difference of the diagnostic parameters of acute respiratory distress syndrome/multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (ARDS/MODS) at high altitude (H-ARDS/MODS) with that on plains and reevaluate the practicality and feasibility of the diagnostic criteria of H-ARDS (Lanzhou conference, 1999). METHODS Three hundred and sixty cases(More)
