Litchi fruit pericarp (LFP) contains significant amounts of phenolics which have been found to exhibit diverse biological activities. The purpose of this work was to determine the varietal differences in phenolic profiles and antioxidant activity of LFP from nine commercially available cultivars. The total phenolic and flavonoid contents ranged from 9.39 to(More)
BACKGROUND Bulbous nasal tips and lower dorsa are common facial features in Chinese people, and surgery to reshape these is frequently requested. The use of silicone implants in rhinoplasty has been widely used in China for many years, but is not suitable for patients seeking Caucasian tip shapes. The creation of an excessively high tip supported only by a(More)
The present study was designed to observe the influence of cerebral ischemia/reperfusion injury on learning and memory in hyperlipidemic rats and estimate the changes of activity of autonomic nervous system. Twenty-three male Wistar rats were randomly divided into three groups, named control group (C group, n=10), hyperlipidemia group (H group, n=6) and(More)
The tumor-associated calcium signal transducer 2 (TACSTD2) gene has been reported to be highly expressed in many types of human epithelial cancers, and is associated with tumor metastasis and poor prognosis. The aims of the present investigation were to analyze the TACSTD2 and Cyclin D1 expression at the mRNA and protein levels and to assess its prognostic(More)
AIM To investigate the relationship between Interleukin-8 (IL-8) and proliferation, adhesion, migration, invasion and chemosensitivity of gastric cancer (GC) cells. METHODS The IL-8 cDNA was stably transfected into human GC cell line MKN-45 and selected IL-8-secreting transfectants. The expression of IL-8 in human GC cell line KATO-III was inhibited by(More)
Deregulation of microRNAs (miRNAs) has been associated with a variety of cancers, including non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Here, we investigated anomalous miR-613 expression and its possible functional consequences in primary NSCLC samples and NSCLC-derived cell lines. The expression of miR-613 was measured by quantitative RT-PCR in 56 primary NSCLC(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the difference between native and nonative herbs by determining contents of seven kinds of flavone for twenty-five samples from seventeen areas. METHODS HPLC. Fluid phase: MEOH-H2O-CH3COOH(ICE) (41:59:0.2) and (50:50:0.2). Detection wavelength: 275. RESULTS The contents of baicalin are 6%-9%, wogenin are 2%-8%, baicalein are(More)
OBJECTIVE To locate the mandibular canal accurately in the mandibular body of the young women and provide anatomic data for the mandibular angle plasty. METHODS 60 women whose age ranged from 20 to 39 years old were randomly selected, the average was 25.32 years old. CT scanning and 3-D reconstruction were applied to their mandibles. After the points were(More)
Momordica charantia Linn. is used as an edible and medicinal vegetable in sub-tropical areas. Until now, studies on its composition and related activities have been confined to compounds of low molecular mass, and no data have been reported concerning the plant's polysaccharides. In this work, a crude polysaccharide of M. charantia (MCP) fruit was isolated(More)
Cell division cycle 42 (CDC42), which is a member of the Rho GTPase family, has been reported to regulate the metastasis of various human cancer cells; however, the role of CDC42 in gastric cancer (GC) remains unclear. The present study aimed to investigate the effects of CDC42 on the proliferation, migration and invasion of GC. Furthermore, the molecular(More)
