Chlorophylls (Chls) are crucial for capturing light energy for photosynthesis. Although several genes responsible for Chl biosynthesis were characterized in rice (Oryza sativa), the genetic properties of the hydrogenating enzyme involved in the final step of Chl synthesis remain unknown. In this study, we characterized a rice light-induced yellow leaf 1-1(More)
MiR-198 is involved in tumorigenesis, migration, invasion, and metastasis of various malignant cancers. However, the exact expression levels of miR-198 and the molecular mechanism underlying its role in lung adenocarcinoma require further exploration. In this study, quantitative real-time PCR was applied to study miR-198 and serine hydroxymethyltransferase(More)
Based on the core hysteresis features, the RTD-fluxgate core, while working, is repeatedly saturated with excitation field. When the fluxgate simulates, the accurate characteristic model of the core may provide a precise simulation result. As the shape of the ideal hysteresis loop model is fixed, it cannot accurately reflect the actual dynamic changing(More)
Lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer-related mortality worldwide. It is a complex disease involving multiple genetic and epigenetic alterations. The development of transcriptomics revealed the important role of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) in lung cancer occurrence and development. Here, microarray analysis of lung adenocarcinoma tissues showed(More)
Aberrant expression of miR-15a was recently reported in several types of cancers; however, its role in HPV-positive hypopharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (HSCC) remains obscure. In the present study, we investigated the mechanism by which miR-15a induces HPV-positive HSCC apoptosis. Synthetic miR-15a mimics were transfected into FaDu cells (HPV-negative),(More)
Currently, lung cancer is still a main cause of malignancy-associated death worldwide. Even though various methods for prevention and treatment of lung cancer have been improved in recent decades, the 5-year survival rate has remained very low. Insights into the anticancer function of small-molecule anticancer compounds have opened our visual field about(More)
The output performance of residence times difference (RTD) fluxgate may vary under different driving conditions (driving currents and frequencies) and core materials. To optimize the RTD fluxgate and simplify its design process, an analytical model is employed to select the parameters and identify the effective factors that dominate the performance. The(More)
Hypopharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma is a common type of malignant tumor among head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCCs). Heavy smoking and/or drinking is associated with the development of HNSCC. However, HNSCC also occurs in individuals that do not drink or smoke, possibly due to infection with the human papilloma virus (HPV). HPV-16 has been(More)
