BACKGROUND The aquaporins (AQPs), water channel proteins, are known playing a major role in transcellular and transepithelial water movement; they also exhibit several properties related to tumor development. The aim of the present study is to elucidate whether the expression of AQP5 is a strong prognostic biomarker for prostate cancer, and the potential(More)
It has become increasingly important to study the urban heat island phenomenon due to the adverse effects on summertime cooling energy demand, air and water quality and most importantly, heat-related illness and mortality. The present article analyses the magnitude and the characteristics of the urban heat island in Sydney, Australia. Climatic data from six(More)
This work studies the annual energy performance of a VWV air-source heat pump system by means of experiment and simulation. An advanced VWV R410a air-source heat pump system, integrated with independent normal fan-coil unit, small temperature difference fan-coil unit and floor radiation heating-coil unit indoor terminals, is successfully constructed.(More)
The 58-kDa microspherule protein (MSP58) has been reported to play an important role in the tumorigenesis and progression of cancers. However, little is known about the role of MSP58 in human renal cell carcinoma (RCC). In this study, we investigated the expression and biological roles of MSP58 in RCC. The results indicated that the expressions of MSP58 at(More)
