High-density lipoprotein mediates a normal physiological process called reverse cholesterol transport. In this process, a scavenger receptor of the B class (SR-BI)/human homologue of SR-BI, CD36, and LIMPII analogous-1 (hSR-BI/CLA-1) facilitates the cellular uptake of cholesterol from high-density lipoprotein. In endothelial cells, high-density lipoprotein(More)
Camellia seed oil (CSO) is rich in oleic acid and has a high number of active components, which give the oil high nutritional value and a variety of biological activity. The aim of the present study was to determine the changes in the content and distribution of total polar compounds (TPC) in CSO during heating. TPC were isolated by means of preparative(More)
Germline mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes greatly increase a woman’s risk of developing breast and/or ovarian cancer. The prevalence and distribution of such mutations differ across races/ethnicities. Several studies have investigated Chinese women with high-risk breast cancer, but the full spectrum of the mutations in these two genes remains unclear.(More)
We read with interest the study by Teng and colleagues reporting a high frequency (11.4 %) of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-activating mutations in triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) in a Singapore cohort [1]. In a separate study, EGFR-activating mutations were detected in 7.7 % (1 out of 13) of Chinese basal-like breast cancers [2].(More)
The aim of this study is to investigate protective effects of sesaminol on the human bronchial epithelial (BEAS-2B) cell line against oxidative damage of cigarette smoke extract (CSE). BEAS-2B cells were pre-incubated with sesaminol for 12 h and then treated with various concentrations of CSE for 24 h. After that proliferation ability, levels of reactive(More)
