Resveratrol, a naturally occurring polyphenolic compound, has been reported to exert anticancer activity by affecting diverse molecular targets. In this study, we examined the effects and the underlying mechanisms of resveratrol on gastric cancer. We found that resveratrol inhibited the proliferation of gastric cancer cells in a dose-dependent manner. At(More)
PURPOSE This study investigated the role of histone demethylase Jumonji domain-containing protein 2B (JMJD2B) in promoting epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and underlying molecular mechanisms in the progression of gastric cancer. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN The induction of EMT by JMJD2B in gastric cancer cells and its underlying mechanisms were examined(More)
Epigenetic alterations such as aberrant expression of histone-modifying enzymes have been implicated in tumorigenesis. Jumonji domain containing 2B (JMJD2B) is a newly identified histone demethylase that regulates chromatin structure or gene expression by removing methyl residues from trimethylated lysine 9 on histone H3. Recent observations have shown(More)
Aflatoxins are a group of extremely toxic small molecules that have been involved in human hepatic and extrahepatic carcinogenesis as causative agents. Herein, we developed a real-time immuno polymerase chain reaction (IPCR) assay for the accurately quantitative detection of aflatoxins in agri-products base on a M13 phage containing aflatoxin anti-idiotypic(More)
Microarray data of astrocytes extracted from the optic nerves of donors with and without glaucoma were analyzed to screen for differentially expressed genes (DEGs). Functional exploration with bioinformatic tools was then used to understand the roles of the identified DEGs in glaucoma. Microarray data were downloaded from the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO)(More)
This paper presents a digital simulation model for the current transformer in real-time simulation of electric power system, taking into account the non-linear factors such as saturation and hysteresis. Using this model, the simulation researches of the electromagnetic transients of normal operating current state, large current fault state of the primary(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the molecular pathogenesis of SLC26A4 mutations associated with inner ear malformations including large vestibular aqueduct syndrome (LVAS), Mondini dysplasia and inner ear malformations but not accompanied with LVAS. METHOD DNA sample and clinical material were obtained from 14 sporadic LVAS probands, six Mondini dysplasia probands and(More)
The candidate gene for the barley Un8 true loose smut resistance gene encodes a deduced protein containing two tandem protein kinase domains. In North America, durable resistance against all known isolates of barley true loose smut, caused by the basidiomycete pathogen Ustilago nuda (Jens.) Rostr. (U. nuda), is under the control of the Un8 resistance gene.(More)
Purpose: This study investigated the role of histone demethylase Jumonji domain–containing protein 2B (JMJD2B) in promoting epithelial–mesenchymal transition (EMT) and underlying molecular mechanisms in the progression of gastric cancer. Experimental Design: The induction of EMT by JMJD2B in gastric cancer cells and its underlying mechanismswere examined by(More)
The aim of this study was to identify differentially expressed genes (DEGs) in renal medullary hypertension and reveal their pathogenic mechanisms. We downloaded the gene expression profile of GSE28360 from the Gene Expression Omnibus database. The profile included 14 samples (5 normal and 9 hypertension). The DEGs in normal and disease samples were(More)
