Lung ischemia–reperfusion injury (LIRI) may occur in the region of the affected lung after reperfusion therapy. Inhaled NO may be useful in treating acute and chronic pulmonary thromboembolism (PTE) due to the biological effect property of NO. A PTE canine model was established through selectively embolizing blood clots to an intended right lower lobar(More)
E74-like factor 5 (Elf5) has been associated with tumor suppression in breast cancer. However, its role in urothelial cancer (UC) is completely unknown. Immunohistochemistry (IHC) and methylation specific PCR (MSP) were done to detect Elf5 expression level and its promoter methylation. Results revealed that low expression of Elf5 on protein and mRNA levels(More)
Lung ischemia-reperfusion injury (LIRI) may occur in the region of the affected lung after reperfusion therapy. The inflammatory response mechanisms related to LIRI in pulmonary thromboembolism (PTE), especially in chronic PTE, need to be studied further. In a PTE model, inflammatory response and apoptosis may occur during LIRI and nitric oxide (NO)(More)
We report the use of poly(amidoamine) dendrimers as stabilizers to synthesize ultrathin Au nanowires (NWs) with a diameter of 1.3 nm via a hydrothermal approach. The formation of uniform Au NWs was optimized by varying the Au/Ag salt molar ratio, dendrimer stabilizers, and reaction solvent, temperature, and time. A novel growth mechanism involving a(More)
The direct ethanol fuel cell (DEFC) represents one of the most exciting future clean energy solutions in modern research, because ethanol can be sustainably produced from biomass, is relatively nontoxic and, most importantly, has a high energy density. [1–8] The exceptional energy density is due to the transfer of 12 electrons from ethanol during complete(More)
BACKGROUND Nowadays, small peripheral pulmonary lesions (PPLs) are frequently detected and the prognosis of lung cancer depends on the early diagnosis. Because of the high fee and requiring specialized training, many advanced techniques are not available in many developing countries and rural districts. METHODS Three sets of opaque soft copper wires(More)
Intramolecular electronic communications of molecular wires play a crucial role for developing molecular devices. In the present work, we describe different degrees of intramolecular electronic communications in the redox processes of three ubiquinone-based biomolecular wires (Bis-CoQ0s) evaluated by electrochemistry and Density Functional Theory (DFT)(More)
