Non-homologous end joining (NHEJ) is a major pathway to repair DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs), which can display different types of broken ends. However, it is unclear how NHEJ factors organize to repair diverse types of DNA breaks. Here, through systematic analysis of the human NHEJ factor interactome, we identify PAXX as a direct interactor of Ku. The(More)
We present a practical and scalable method for flow- and context-sensitive (FSCS) pointer analysis for C programs. Our method analyzes the pointers in a program level by level in terms of their points-to levels, allowing the points-to relations of the pointers at a particular level to be discovered based on the points-to relations of the pointers at this(More)
OBJECTIVE ALDH1 has recently been reported as a marker of cancer stem-like cells in lung cancer. However, the predictive value of ALDH1 in lung cancer remains controversial. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the association of ALDH1 expression with the clinicopathological features and outcomes of lung cancer patients through a meta-analysis. METHODS(More)
INTRODUCTION Urological complications after kidney transplantation may lead to graft loss. In this study, we retrospectively reviewed urological complications in 1,223 kidney transplantations that were performed at our institution. MATERIALS AND METHODS The occurrence of urological complications such as urine leakage, ureteral obstruction and(More)
We previously reported a large Chinese pedigree of erythrokeratodermia variabilis (EKV). A unique feature was that some of the affected members experienced transitory pustules on the border of classic lesions. Here we prescribed oral arotinoid ethylester and acitretin to two of the affected members in the pedigree, at starting dosage of 0.03 mg/day for(More)
We report the complete nucleotide sequence of a plasmid, pA31-12, carrying blaCTX-M-55 and mcr-1 from a chicken Escherichia coli isolate. pA31-12 has an IncI2 replicon that displays extensive sequence similarity with pHN1122-1-borne blaCTX-M-55 and pHNSHP45-borne mcr-1 Insertion sequences ISEcp1 and ISApl1 are responsible for the mobilization of blaCTX-M-55(More)
BACKGROUND Atopic dermatitis (AD) is the most prevalent chronic inflammatory skin disease in children characterized by dermatitis and pruritus. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been shown as great potential biomarkers for disease fingerprints to predict prognostics. We aimed to identify miRNA signature from serum and urine for the prognosis of AD patient by(More)
Prostate carcinoma is the most common cancer for men and among the leading cancer-related causes. Many evidences have shown that tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) potently induces apoptosis in cancer cells, and thus, is a promising biologic agent for prostate carcinoma therapy. However, TRAIL expression mediated by the current(More)
