It has been suggested that microRNA-9 (miR-9) is associated with the development of knee osteoarthritis (OA). This study was aimed to investigate the association between the mechanism of miR-9 targeting nuclear factor kappa-B1 (NF-κB1) and the proliferation and apoptosis of knee OA chondrocytes.Cartilage samples were collected from 25 patients with knee OA(More)
Cancer remains as the leading cause of death all over the world due to the lack of efficient diagnostic techniques and therapeutic methods. Many studies have reported the potential diagnostic value of microRNA-17 (miRNA-17, miR-17) family members as biomarkers for cancer detection. However, inconsistent results were revealed from a wide range of studies. As(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the roles of axoplasmic transportation during regeneration after facial nerve injury. METHOD Facial nucleus injection and isotopic-label tracer with liquid scintillation counting techniques were used to investigate the changes of radioactivity after guinea pig facial nerve compressed. RESULT Axoplasmic transportation was observed(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the distribution of rat facial motoneurons contributing different branches under normal situation and when nerve reinnervation occurred following facial nerve axotomy. METHODS The normal distribution of motoneurons innervated both buccal and marginal mandibular branches and its reorganization after facial nerve reinnervation was(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the changes of receptor tyrosine kinase B and C (trkB and trkC) mRNA in facial motoneurons following facial nerve injury and repair. METHODS The time course of trkB and trkC mRNA in facial motoneurons following facial nerve transection and anastomosis was analyzed using in situ hybridization (ISH) and reverse transcriptase-polymerase(More)
