WW domain-containing oxidoreductase (WWOX) is a tumor suppressor that has been reported to lose function due to genetic alterations in several cancers. WWOX maps to the common chromosomal fragile site FRA16D and several copy number variations (CNVs) were found within this gene. In this study, we investigated the association between the CNVs of WWOX and lung(More)
Necroptosis is a newly discovered type of cell death characterized with the combined biochemical and ultrastructural features of necrosis and apoptosis. Nec-1 has been reported to exhibit the selective inhibition for necroptosis, which has now been used as an operational definition of necroptosis. The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether(More)
OBJECTIVES MicroRNA-21 in serum is a promising marker for the diagnosis of lung carcinoma. A meta-analysis was performed to assess the diagnostic accuracy and clinical value of serum microRNA-21 in patients with lung carcinoma. METHODS PubMed, EMBASE, Web of Knowledge (ISI), the Cochrane Library, Scopus, BioMed Central, Science Direct, China National(More)
Decision tree classification algorithms have significant potential for remote sensing data classification. This paper advances to adopt decision tree technologies to classify remote sensing images. First, this paper discussed the algorithms structure and the algorithms theory of decision tree. Second, C4.5 basic theory and boosting technology are explained.(More)
MOTIVATION Loss of heterozygosity (LOH) is one of the most important mechanisms in the tumor evolution. LOH can be detected from the genotypes of the tumor samples with or without paired normal samples. In paired sample cases, LOH detection for informative single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) is straightforward if there is no genotyping error. But(More)
CD133 is a pivotal marker of cancer stem cells (CSCs), which is involved in tumorigenesis and cancer progression. Recent studies have identified CD133 to be a prognostic factor for cancer rested with its expression and genetic variants. Here, we hypothesized that the single nuclear polymorphisms (SNPs) in CD133 may be associated with lung cancer risk and(More)
N-acetyl glutamate kinase (NAGK) is a key enzyme in the synthesis of L-arginine, and L-arginine-sensitive NAGK typically has hexameric architecture. Defining the relationship between this architecture and L-arginine inhibition can provide a foundation to identify the key amino acids involved in the allosteric regulation network of L-arginine. In the present(More)
Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) is characterized by its extensive genetic diversity. Here we analyzed 101 sequences of NSP2 hypervariable region, 123 ORF3 sequences, and 118 ORF5 sequences from 128 PRRSV-positive clinical samples collected in different areas of China during 2008-early 2012. The results indicated that the amino(More)
UNLABELLED Protein phosphatase-2A (PP2A) is one of the major cellular serine-threonine phosphatases and functions as a tumor suppressor that negatively regulates the activity of some oncogenic kinases. Recent studies have reported that PP2A expression was suppressed during lung carcinogenesis, we there hypothesized that the single nucleotide polymorphisms(More)
