The circulating miRNAs are sufficiently stable and detectable to serve as clinical biomarkers as recent studies have revealed that the aberrant expression of circulating miRNAs can directly reflect disease status. Based on the analysis of the data (using miRanda software, TargetScan software and SOLID high-throughput sequencing) obtained from the(More)
Exosomes are small extracellular membrane vesicles of endocytic origin released by many cells that could be found in most body fluids. The main functions of exosomes are cellular communication and cellular waste clean-up. This study was conducted to determine the involvement of exosomes in the regulation of sensitivity of the lung cancer cell line A549 to(More)
Adenovirus infection can cause various illnesses depending on the infecting serotype, such as gastroenteritis, conjunctivitis, cystitis, and rash illness, but the infection mechanism is still unknown. MicroRNAs (miRNA) have been reported to play essential roles in cell proliferation, cell differentiation, and pathogenesis of human diseases including viral(More)
BACKGROUND Apoptosis is important for regulating spermatogenesis. The protein mRHBDD1 (mouse homolog of human RHBDD1)/rRHBDD1 (rat homolog of human RHBDD1) is highly expressed in the testis and is involved in apoptosis of spermatogonia. GC-1, a spermatogonia cell line, has the capacity to differentiate into spermatids within the seminiferous tubules. We(More)
Scientists have widely applied transgenic technology to plants. We transferred the TaLEA gene to Populus simonii × P. nigra (Xiaohei Poplar), obtained ten transgenic poplar clones and analyzed these clones in a greenhouse and woodland. The heights (H), basal diameters (BD), and diameter at breast high (DBH) were significantly different (P < 0.01) among the(More)
To evaluate differences among poplar clones of various ploidies, 12 hybrid poplar clones (P. simonii × P. nigra) × (P. nigra × P. simonii) with different ploidies were used to study phenotypic variation in growth traits and photosynthetic characteristics. Analysis of variance showed remarkable differences for each of the investigated traits among these(More)
It has previously been reported that KU60019, as a highly effective radiosensitizer, inhibits the DNA damage response and blocks radiation-induced phosphorylation of key ataxia telangiectasia mutated targets in human glioma cells. The present study investigated whether KU60019 affects cell physiological activities and strengthens the efficacy of(More)
Siberian Pine (Pinus sibirica) is an ecologically and economically important species in pristine forests throughout northern Russia. Four provenances of P. sibirica were introduced from Mongolia and Russia to the Greater Xing’an Range (the Daxing’anling), northeast China in 1993. The aim of this research was to study genetic variation and selection of the(More)
A series of benzo[d]imidazole analogues of thiabenzole were synthesized and their antiinflammatory activities toward NLRP3 (nucleotide-binding domain leucine-rich repeat containing protein family,pyrin domain-containing 3,also known as cryopyrin or NALP3) inflammasome were evaluated in vitro. Two lead compounds, TBZ-09 and TBZ-21, were identified by(More)
The growth traits (tree height, diameter at breast height, and stem straightness degree) and wood properties [wood density (WD), fiber length, fiber width, ash content (AC), lignin content, cellulose content, hemicellulose content (HEC), and holocellulose content] of 208 26-year-old Larix olgensis clones were analyzed. Except for WD and AC, there were(More)
