The investigation of health risks of metals in Yellow River water, farmland soil and spring wheat in the Baotou region, northern China indicated that long-term irrigation with polluted YR water led to metal accumulation in local farmland soiland spring wheat.
The long non-coding RNA HOTAIR is upregulated in endometrial carcinoma and correlates with poor prognosis.
The results suggest that a high expression of HOTAIR is involved in the progression of cancer and may be a novel biomarker of poor prognosis in patients with EC.
China’s South‐to‐North Water Transfer Project: Is it Needed?
China has started the construction of the South-to-North Water Transfer Project (SNWTP; its magnitude is even greater than the Three Gorges Dam Project), to deliver about 45 billion m3 of water from…
Mutant p53 (p53-R248Q) functions as an oncogene in promoting endometrial cancer by up-regulating REGγ.
Elevated STMN1 promotes tumor growth and invasion in endometrial carcinoma
STMN1 is an oncogene and it enhances the growth and invasion of EC possibly by mediating the secretion and activation of MMP2 and MMP9 protein.
Overexpression of long non-coding RNA HOTAIR leads to chemoresistance by activating the Wnt/β-catenin pathway in human ovarian cancer
HOTAIR promotes the initiation and chemoresistance of ovarian cancer by activating wnt/β-catenin signaling, suggesting that HOTAIR might be a potent therapeutic target for ovarian cancer treatment.
Wavelength-tunable, passively mode-locked fiber laser based on graphene and chirped fiber Bragg grating.
A wavelength-tunable, passively mode-locked erbium-doped fiber laser based on graphene and chirped fiber Bragg grating, which has high potential in tuning the mode-locking laser pulses across a wide wavelength range is demonstrated.

Graphene with zero-band gap can be easily saturated under strong excitation due to Pauli blocking. In this work, the graphene oxide membrane is reduced on the surface of microfiber by use of high…
Tunable and Switchable Dual-Wavelength Single-Longitudinal-Mode Erbium-Doped Fiber Lasers
Two types of erbium-doped fiber lasers based on Sagnac interferometer incorporated with fiber grating are proposed and experimentally demonstrated, which effectively support tunable and switchable…
Stem cell protein Piwil1 endowed endometrial cancer cells with stem-like properties via inducing epithelial-mesenchymal transition
Overexpression of Piwil1 functioned to maintain stem-like characteristics, including enhancing tumor cell viability, migration, invasion and sphere-forming activity in vitro and tumor formation in xenograft model in vivo, indicating that PiWil1 may represent a promising target for developing a novel treatment strategy for endometrial cancer.
