Molecular cloning, characterization and expression analysis of a putative C-type lectin (Fclectin) gene in Chinese shrimp Fenneropenaeus chinensis.
Lectin is regarded as a potential molecule involved in immune recognition and phagocytosis through opsonization in crustacean. Knowledge on lectin at molecular level would help us to understand itsExpand
Hepatitis B vs. hepatitis C infection on viral hepatitis-associated hepatocellular carcinoma
BackgroundTo determine clinical-pathologic variables in patients with a new diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and underlying hepatitis B vs. C infection.MethodsPatients presenting to aExpand
The Severity of Liver Fibrosis Influences the Prognostic Value of Inflammation-Based Scores in Hepatitis B-Associated Hepatocellular Carcinoma
AbstractBackground This study was designed to evaluate the prognostic value of three systemic inflammation markers, neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR), andExpand
Cloning and expression of glucose regulated protein 78 (GRP78) in Fenneropenaeus chinensis
GRP78 (78 kDa glucose-regulated protein), also known as BiP (immunoglobulin heavy-chain-binding protein), is an essential regulator of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) homeostasis because of its multipleExpand
Identification of a novel inducible cytosolic Hsp70 gene in Chinese shrimp Fenneropenaeus chinensis and comparison of its expression with the cognate Hsc70 under different stresses
The heat shock protein 70 (Hsp70) family is widely expressed in eukaryotic cells as the major chaperone protein. In this study, the full-length complementary DNA (cDNA) of a novel inducible cytosolicExpand
Comparison of Gene Expression Profiles of Fenneropenaeus chinensis Challenged with WSSV and Vibrio
Microarray technique was used to analyze the gene expression profiles of shrimp when they were challenged by WSSV and heat-inactivated Vibrio anguillarum, respectively. At 6 h post challenge (HPC), aExpand
A novel tumor necrosis factor ligand superfamily member (CsTL) from Ciona savignyi: molecular identification and expression analysis.
A novel invertebrate TNF ligand was identified and characterized in Ciona savignyi. The CsTL cDNA consisted of 995 nucleotides and encoded 281 amino acids. A conserved TNF family signature andExpand
Cloning of cytoplasmic heat shock protein 90 (FcHSP90) from Fenneropenaeus chinensis and its expression response to heat shock and hypoxia
Heat shock protein 90 (HSP90) works as a multi-functional chaperone and is involved in the regulation of many essential cellular pathways. In this study, we have identified a full-lengthExpand
Assessing Prognostic Significance of Preoperative Alpha-Fetoprotein in Hepatitis B-Associated Hepatocellular Carcinoma: Normal is not the New Normal
BackgroundHepatitis B (HBV)-associated hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is often associated with alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) production. Although serum AFP has been demonstrated to be a prognostic factorExpand
Impact of liver fibrosis on prognosis following liver resection for hepatitis B-associated hepatocellular carcinoma
Background:This study aims to evaluate the impact of liver fibrosis severity on prognosis following liver resection among HBV–HCC patients.Methods:Data were extracted from a prospective database ofExpand
