MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have emerged as important regulators in cancer that are implicated in regulation of various cellular processes. miR-382 has been proposed as a tumor suppressor by several recent studies. However, the function of miR-382 in prostate cancer remains unknown. In this study, we aimed to investigate the potential function of miR-382 in prostate(More)
Decomposition is a complex process involving the interaction of both biotic and abiotic factors. Microbes play a critical role in the process of carrion decomposition. In this study, we analysed bacterial communities from live rats and rat remains decomposed under natural conditions, or excluding sarcosaphagous insect interference, in China using Illumina(More)
To study the population data of Y-chromosome STRs (Y-STRs) of Han population resided in Hunan province, we analyzed haplotypes of 26 Y-STRs (DYS19, DYS385a/b, DYS389I, DYS389II, DYS390, DYS391, DYS392, DYS393, DYS437, DYS438, DYS439, DYS448, DYS456, DYS458, DYS481, DYS533, DYS549, DYS570, DYS576, DYS635, DYS643, DYS388, DYS449, DYS460, and YGATAH4) in 310(More)
BACKGROUND It is known that microRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of small, non-coding RNAs that act as key regulators in various physiological and pathological processes. However, the regulatory mechanisms involving miRNAs in prostate cancer remain largely unknown. Here, we found that miR-103 is down-regulated in prostate cancer and closely associated with tumor(More)
One water-soluble polysaccharide (PEPw), with an average molecular weight of 2.5×10(4)Da, was isolated from the fruiting bodies of Pleurotus eryngii and subjected to composition analysis and evaluated for the antitumor and immunomodulatory activity. PEPw was composed of arabinose, mannose and galactose in a molar ratio of 1.2:2.3:6.2 and had a backbone(More)
DNA-based technologies have been increasingly used in species determination of forensically important sarcophagids, as they are often not morphologically distinct, especially for the immature specimens. The mitochondrial genome has been broadly used for species-level identifications. Although Chinese sarcophagid sequences of short fragments (200-600 bp) had(More)
Sarcophaga africa (S. africa) is a significant medical and forensic insect which belongs to the Sarcophagidae. The species identification of the forensically important genus Sarcophaga is difficult and requires strong morphology and taxonomic expertise. With the sequencing technique improved, we report the complete mitochondrial genome of the S. africa for(More)
The mitochondrial genome of Helicophagella melanura, a representative of the Sarcophagidae family, was completely sequenced for the first time. The genome is a double-stranded circular molecule of 15,190 bp length, including the 37 genes and 1 non-coding AT-rich region. The gene contents of the mtDNA were identical to those observed in the ancestral(More)
Nonbinary single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are potential forensic genetic markers because their discrimination power is greater than that of normal binary SNPs, and that they can detect highly degraded samples. We previously developed a nonbinary SNP multiplex typing assay. In this study, we selected additional 20 nonbinary SNPs from the NCBI SNP(More)
