Our recent studies have shown that hypothermic microenvironment promotes tumor progression and that the molecular sensors for cold are the transient receptor potential (TRP) channels TRPM8 and TRPA1. To evaluate the contribution of TRPM8 and TRPA1 to cancer malignancy, we screened cell subpopulations from Lewis lung cancer (LLC) using limiting dilutions and(More)
Coptidis Rhizoma and Aconiti Kusnezoffii Radix represent hot Chinese medicine and cold Chinese medicine respectively. The purpose of this study is to observe the differentiation effect of Coptidis Rhizoma and Aconiti Kusnezoffii Radix on lewis lung cancer and compare effect of hot Chinese medicine and cold Chinese medicine on tumor progression. In this(More)
“Returning bloom” is a major problem in the warm pear-producing regions during autumn–winter after the pear harvest and can cause tremendous pear production losses in the following year. The molecular mechanism causing this phenomenon is a mystery. We used high-throughput tag-sequencing (tag-seq) technology to analyze the gene expression profiling of pear(More)
A new strategy is proposed for determination of carcino-embryonic antigen (CEA) based on aptamer/graphene oxide (Apt/GO) by capillary electrophoresis-chemiluminescence (CE-CL) detection system. CEA aptamer conjugated with horseradish peroxidase (HRP) firstly mixes with GO, and the CL will be quenched because the stack of HRP-Apt on GO leads to(More)
By using hydroponics, this paper studied the physiological responses of trifoliate orange (Poncirus trifoliata) seedlings to the deficiency of zinc (0 micromol x L(-1) Zn2+) and/or iron (0 micromol x L(-1) Fe-EDTA). The deficiency of both Zn and Fe decreased the plant biomass and root viability, and increased the leaf-and root SOD activity significantly.(More)
UDP-glucuronosyltransferases (UGTs), the most important enzymes in body detoxification and homeostasis maintaining, govern the glucuronidation reaction of various endogenous and environmental carcinogens. The metabolic function of UGTs can be severely influenced by hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), the fifth prevalent and third malignant cancer worldwide.(More)
Sucrose transporters (SUTs) belong to the major facilitator superfamily. The function of SUTs has been intensively investigated in some higher plants, whereas that in pear fruit is unknown. In this study, the cloning and functional characterization of a sucrose transporter, PbSUT2, in pear (Pyrus bretschneideri Rehd. cv. 'Yali') fruits are reported. PbSUT2(More)
