OBJECTIVE The tumor suppressor p53 pathway plays a crucial role in preventing carcinogenesis through its ability to impose cell cycle arrest and apoptosis following DNA damage or oncogene activation. Mouse double minute 2 (MDM2) gene is a key negative regulator of p53 pathway and overexpressed in many cancers as oncoprotein. We have previously shown that(More)
The phenomenon of immunoglobulin (Ig) expression in cancer cells has been discovered recently; the Ig protein expressed and secreted in cancer cells was found to be in favor of tumor growth. Two single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) loci rs232230 (5658C/G) and rs232228 (3635T/C) were identified on Igkappa gene previously, and we have demonstrated that they(More)
Acute baroreflex resetting has been quantitatively studied in anesthetized dogs. Carotid sinuses were isolated bilaterally and carotid sinus conditioning pressure (CPcsp) was set at nine different levels for 20 min over a range of from 40 to 200 mm Hg. Over this range of 160 mm Hg in CPcsp, the magnitude of baroreflex resetting of set point pressure (Psp),(More)
In this paper, we proposed the adaptive RISE control algorithm for flexible-link manipulator. Via Singular Perturbation theory and the concept of integral manifolds, we divided the coupled nonlinear flexible-link manipulator dynamic system into two time-scaled decoupling subsystems. For slow-varying subsystem, we proposed the gain-varying RISE control(More)
