Using an siRNA-based screen, we identified the transcriptional corepressor RIP140 as a negative regulator of insulin-responsive hexose uptake and oxidative metabolism in 3T3-L1 adipocytes. Affymetrix GeneChip profiling revealed that RIP140 depletion upregulates the expression of clusters of genes in the pathways of glucose uptake, glycolysis, TCA cycle,(More)
The chronic unpredictable mild stress (CUMS) model is a widely used experimental model of depression. Exogenous stress-induced neuronal cell death in the hippocampus is closely associated with the pathogenesis of depression. Excessive and prolonged endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress triggers cell death. Hydrogen sulfide (H2S), the third endogenous signaling(More)
This note is a commentary on, and critique of, André Luiz Barbosa's paper entitled " P != NP Proof. " Despite its provocative title, what the paper is seeking to do is not to prove P = NP in the standard sense in which that notation is used in the literature. Rather, Barbosa is (and is aware that he is) arguing that a different meaning should be associated(More)
The present study examines the efficacy of expressive writing among Chinese undergraduates. The sample comprised of 74 undergraduates enrolled in a 9-week intervention (35 in experimental class vs. 39 in control class). The writing exercises were well-embedded in an elective course for the two classes. The 46-item simplified Chinese Self-Rated Health(More)
BACKGROUND Pathological Internet Use (PIU) has become a global issue associated with the increasing number of Internet users. Previous studies concerned both the interpersonal and intrapersonal vulnerable factors and the corresponding models. However, a limited amount of research has explored the relationship between positive factors and PIU. OBJECTIVE(More)
PURPOSE This study aims to screen microRNAs (miRNAs), for an early diagnosis of colorectal cancer, by deep sequencing and evaluation of total miRNAs using clinical samples from a Chinese patient population. METHODS Total small RNAs from normal colonic mucosa, colonic adenomas, and colorectal cancer tissues were prepared for miRNA analysis by deep(More)
A composite chattering-free sliding mode control (CCF-SMC) scheme is presented for chaotic permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) systems with some immesureable states. Through a simple coordinate transformation, the chaotic PMSM model is transformed into a Brunovsky canonical form, which is more suitable for the sliding-mode controller design. In order(More)
