Pancreatic cancer is one of the most lethal malignancies of all types of cancer due to lack of early symptoms and its resistance to conventional therapy. In our previous study, we have shown that v‑ets erythroblastosis virus E26 oncogene homolog‑1 (ETS‑1) promote cell migration and invasion in pancreatic cancer cells. However, the function of ETS‑1 in(More)
A novel fluorescent probe that possess both BODIPY and Rhodamine moieties has been designed for the selective detection of Hg(2+) and Ba(2+) ions on the controlling by a logic gate. The characteristic fluorescence of the Ba(2+)-selective OFF-ON and the Hg(2+)-selective fluorescence bathochromic shift can be observed, and the concept has been used to(More)
Emodin is a multifunctional Chinese traditional medicine with poor water solubility. D-α-tocopheryl polyethylene glycol 1000 succinate (TPGS) is a pegylated vitamin E derivate. In this study, a novel liposomal-emodin-conjugating TPGS was formulated and compared with methoxypolyethyleneglycol 2000-derivatized distearoyl-phosphatidylethanolamine(More)
Two novel ferrocene-BODIPY molecules FcEB and FcB have been synthesized and characterized. An "interlock" packing mode was demonstrated in both FcEB and FcB by analysis of X-ray diffraction data. FcEB exhibits a molecular rotor property with a significant enhancement of quantum yield in viscous solvent. The result shows that the emission of FcEB increased(More)
An intramolecular charge-transfer (ICT) compound, (TCBD)2OPV3, has been synthesized and fabricated into one-dimensional nanotubes by a reprecipitation method. The observation of SEM and TEM showed the nanotubes were formed from their zero-dimensional precursors of hollow nanospheres. Reconstruction was found to happen during the morphology transition(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Patients with metastatic colorectal cancer cannot receive adequate therapy due to their general bad condition, which is at least one of the reasons resulting in poor prognosis. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety in the use of DC vaccine combined with oral Capecitabine therapy in patients with metastatic colorectal(More)
One- and zero-dimensional organic/inorganic heterostructure materials have been attracting considerable attention in materials science because of their outstanding optical and electrical properties and high tailorability in terms of composition, structure, and morphology. Strong interactions between the organic and inorganic units can lead to novel or(More)
A set of monodisperse bent donor-acceptor-donor-type conjugated borazine oligomers, BnNn+1 (n=1-4), incorporating electron-rich triarylamine donor and electron-deficient triarylborane acceptor units has been prepared through an iterative synthetic approach that takes advantage of highly selective silicon-boron and tin-boron exchange reactions. The effect of(More)
A novel pentalene-centered polycyclic 24π-electron system, IB1, was synthesized via a Pd-catalyzed homocoupling reaction. The geometry structure was studied by X-ray diffraction and theoretical method. The HOMO level of IB1 was studied by electrochemical experiment and DFT methods. The IB1 molecule shows a strong electro-donating property and can form a(More)
Two novel multilevel switchable [2]rotaxanes containing an ammonium and a triazole station have been constructed by a Cu(I)-catalyzed azide-alkyne cycloaddition reaction. The macrocycle of [2]rotaxane containing a C6-chain bridge between the two hydrogen bonding stations exhibits high selectivity for the ammonium cation in the protonated form.(More)
