δ-Catenin (CTNND2), which encodes a scaffold protein in humans, has been found in a few malignancies. However, the expression pattern and contribution of δ-catenin to astrocytoma progression are unclear. We investigated δ-catenin expression in human astrocytoma samples and its function in astrocytoma cell lines using immunohistochemistry, siRNA knockdown,(More)
The lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) signaling pathway in alveolar epithelial cells plays an important role in many pathologic processes such as acute lung injury (ALI). The single immunoglobulin IL-1 receptor-related protein (SIGIRR) is an inhibitor of LPS-TLR4 signaling, but its expression and function in alveolar epithelial cells are(More)
BACKGROUND Aneurysms arising from the P(2) segment of the posterior cerebral artery (PCA) are rare, accounting for less than 1% of all intracranial aneurysms. To date, few studies concerning the management of P(2) segment aneurysms have been reported. OBJECTIVE To review the microsurgical techniques and clinical outcomes of microsurgical treatment by(More)
