UNLABELLED This prospective study investigates the relationship between glucose transporter-1 (Glut-1) expression and PET images using (18)F-FDG and its uptake and compares them with the tumor status (primary vs. recurrent or persistent), initial grade of histologic differentiation, and International Federation of Gynecologic Obstetrics (FIGO) staging for(More)
Photonic analogue of topological insulator was recently predicted by arranging ε/μ (permittivity/permeability)-matched bianisotropic metamaterials into two-dimensional superlattices. However, the experimental observation of such photonic topological insulator is challenging as bianisotropic metamaterial is usually highly dispersive, so that the ε/μ-matching(More)
miRNAs are involved in substantial biological passways, including tumorigenesis, cancer development and progression. Angiogenesis plays a vital role in the progression of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), and VEGF is closely associated with the angiogenesis. However, the molecular mechanism of miRNAs in regulation tumorigenesis of HCC remains to be(More)
Sustained cell growth and proliferation, one of the hallmarks of cancer, is considered to responsible for cancer-related deaths by disorganizing the balance of growth promotion and growth limitation. Aberrant activation of the Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway leads to cell proliferation, growth and survival, and promotes the development of various human(More)
Ki-67 has been widely used as an indicator of cell proliferation in gliomas. However, the role of Ki-67 as a prognostic marker is still undefined. Thus, we conducted a meta-analysis of the published literatures in order to clarify the impact of Ki-67 on survival in glioma cases. Eligible studies were identified in PubMed, EMBASE, ISI Web of Science,(More)
Over-activation of the local chymase–angiotensin II (Ang II) system has a dominant role in diabetic cardiomyopathy. Astragalus polysaccharides (APS) are used in traditional Chinese medicine to boost immunity. In this study, we investigated the effects of APS treatment on cardiac function, myocardial collagen expression, cardiac ultrastructure, cardiac(More)
A pair of novel high-molecular-weight glutenin subunits (HMW-GS) 1Dx3.1t and 1Dy11*t were revealed and characterized from Aegilops tauschii Coss. subspecies tauschii accession AS60. SDS-PAGE band of 1Dx3.1t was between those of 1Dx2 and 1Dx3, while 1Dy11*t was between 1Dy11 and 1Dy12. The lengths of 1Dx3.1 t and 1Dy11* t were 2,514 bp and 1,968 bp, encoding(More)
The objective of the present study is to observe the effect of Astragalus polysaccharide (APS) on myocardial glucose and lipid metabolism in diabetes (DM) hamster and to explore its mechanism in intervention of DM cardiomyopathy. Low-dose- streptozotocin-induced hamsters (STZ, 40 mg/kg × 3 days, i.p.) with blood glucose >13.9 mmo/L were considered as type 2(More)
A pair of novel high-molecular-weight glutenin subunits (HMW-GS) 1Dx5.3t and 1Dy12.1**t were revealed and characterized from Ae. tauschii accession PI554324. SDS-PAGE band of 1Dx5.3t was between those of 1Bx6 and 1Bx7, while 1Dy12.1**t with slightly faster migration rate than that of 1Dy12. The lengths of 1Dx5.3 t and 1Dy12.1** t were 2115 bp and 1986 bp,(More)
In this paper, the finite difference Poisson-Boltzmann (FDPB) method with four dielectric constants is developed to study the effect of dielectric saturation on the electrostatic barriers of the permeation ion. In this method, the inner shape of the channel pore is explicitly represented, and the fact that the dielectric constant inside the channel pore is(More)
