The huge number of points scanned from pipeline plants make the plant reconstruction very difficult. Traditional cylinder detection methods cannot be applied directly due to the high computational complexity. In this paper, we explore the structural characteristics of point cloud in pipeline plants and define a structure feature. Based on the structure(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE Estrogen sulfotransferase (EST) is an enzyme which metabolizes estrogen into inactive estrogen sulphate. Bridging integrator protein-1 (BIN1) is a novel c-myc-interacting protein with the features of tumor suppressor. EST and BIN1 may be protective in tumorigenesis. This study was to detect the gene expression of EST and BIN1 in(More)
Studies have shown that nifedipine, an anti-hypertensive drug, protects against atherosclerotic progression, but the underlying mechanisms remain elusive. Oxidized low-density lipoprotein (ox-LDL) is critically implicated in macrophage lipid deposition seen in atherosclerosis. In this study, we examined the effects of nifedipine on some ox-LDL-associated(More)
OBJECTIVE To detect the expression of estrogen sulfotransferase (EST) in breast tissues, and to investigate its significance in breast carcinogenesis and the relationship between EST mRNA and estrogen. METHODS Seven specimens of normal human breast tissues from patients with benign breast diseases were implanted subcutaneously into athymic nude mice, one(More)
The level of p21 mRNA and protein in cultured human umbilical arterial vascular smooth muscle cells were assayed by immunochemical staining and RT-PCR. The expression and phosphorylation status of Rb protein were examined by Western blot. It was observed that the senescent vascular smooth muscle cells exerted morphological changes with transmission electron(More)
