BACKGROUND The prognosis for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is poor, and the mechanisms underlying the development of HCC remain unclear. Notch1 and Notch3 may be involved in malignant transformation, although their roles remain unknown. MATERIALS AND METHODS HCC tissues were stained with anti-Notch1 or -Notch3 antibody. The migration and(More)
Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) remains a common and deadly cancer. Despite numerous efforts, no reliable biomarker is available for daily clinical practice. Circular RNAs (circRNAs) are an abundant, stable and conserved class of RNA molecules that exhibit tissue/developmental-stage-specific expression (Salzman et al., 2012; Jeck et al., 2013;(More)
Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been shown to play critical roles in the development and progression of diseases. lncRNA activated by transforming growth factor beta (TGF-β) (lncRNA-ATB) was discovered as a prognostic factor in hepatocellular carcinoma, gastric cancer, and colorectal cancer. However, little is known about the role of lncRNA-ATB in(More)
In this paper, we focus on the need for autonomous vehicles' path planning and decision making in the urban environment. In our modified method, traffic lanes, road edge and geographic information system(GIS) are integrated to generate three structured road models, which can be used to reduce car's lateral positioning error and guarantee car's driving(More)
Due to the popularity of service-oriented architectures for various distributed systems, an increasing number of Web services have been deployed all over the world. Recently, Web service recommendation became a hot research topic, one that aims to accurately predict the quality of functional satisfactory services for each end user. Generally, the(More)
To expand private femto-WLANs into public femto-WLANs, we present an integrated system of cognitive radio and femto-WLANs, cognitive femto-WLANs, which aims at meeting the requirements from the secondary users upon guaranteeing the requirements from the primary users. To reach this goal, we provide a cognitive radio CSMA/CA protocol, CR-CSMA/CA. Based on(More)
BACKGROUND Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) represents one of the most common forms of liver disease worldwide, and it is always regarded as a consequence of a sedentary, food-abundant lifestyle, sitting for an extended time, and a low physical activity level, which often coincide with chronic and long-lasting psychological stress. A Chinese(More)
