Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test is limited in prostate cancer diagnosis due to its inaccuracy. A new approach which integrates the PSA test with miRNA profiling was investigated to improve prostate cancer diagnosis. Six prostate cancer-related miRNAs (miR-16, -21, -34c, -101, -125b, -141) were tested in five cultured prostate cell lines and 20 human(More)
—This paper reports on an extensive analysis of the trapping processes and of the reliability of experimental AlGaN/ GaN MIS-HEMTs, grown on silicon substrate. The study is based on combined pulsed characterization, transient investigation , breakdown, and reverse-bias stress tests, and provides the following, relevant, information: 1) the exposure to high(More)
This paper reports on an extensive investigation of the gate stability of GaN-based High Electron Mobility Transistors with p-type gate submitted to forward gate stress. Based on combined electrical and electroluminescence measurements, we demonstrate the following results: (i) the catastrophic breakdown voltage of the gate diode is higher than 11 V at room(More)
Winged helix/forkhead transcription factor gene 2 (Foxl2) plays a crucial role during early ovarian development in fish. Sex steroids and aromatase inhibitors can regulate gonadal differentiation in teleosts. To address the role of Foxl2 in gonadal differentiation, foxl2 was isolated and characterized from the Hong Kong catfish, Clarias fuscus. Tissue(More)
Estrogen receptors (Er) play a critical role in vitellogenesis. Three ers (erα, erβ1 and erβ2) and vitellogenins (vtg-A, vtg-B and vtg-C) subtypes were isolated in various fish species, while the contribution of each Er to the regulation of vtgs expression was not analyzed in detail. Here, erα, erβ1 and erβ2 were cloned and all were found to be expressed in(More)
