Previous studies have shown that androgen receptor (AR) is involved in the progression of prostate cancer (CaP) by several mechanisms. However, how AR is regulated has not been fully understood. In this study, miR-185 was found to be down-regulated in clinical CaP samples. Targets prediction revealed that AR had putative complementary sequences to miR-185,(More)
Adult degenerative scoliosis associated with lumbar stenosis has become a common issue in the elderly population. But its surgical management is on debating. The main issue condenses on the management priority of scoliosis or stenosis. This study is to investigate surgical management strategy and outcome of adult degenerative scoliosis associated with(More)
About 80% of kidney stones are composed of calcium oxalate (CaOx) with variable amounts of calcium phosphate, and hyperoxaluria is considered as an important factor of CaOx nephrolithiasis. However, the underlying metabolic mechanisms of CaOx nephrolithiasis remain undefined. In this study, we successfully developed a rat model with hydroxy-L-proline (HLP)(More)
Prostate cancer predisposition has been extensively investigated in European populations, but there have been few studies of other ethnic groups. To investigate prostate cancer susceptibility in the under-investigated Chinese population, we performed single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) array analysis on a cohort of Chinese cases and controls and then(More)
Nin one binding-1 protein (NOB1) is a kind of zinc protein involved in ribosome biogenesis and controlled proteolysis. To explore the function of NOB1 in human prostate malignancy, we analyzed the expression of NOB1 in prostate cancer and found that NOB1 was elevated in prostate cancer tissues compared to the adjacent normal tissues. Knockdown of NOB1 by(More)
NOV is pro-tumourigenic via epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in several malignancies but is not studied in bladder cancer (BCa). Whether NOV is responsible for bladder carcinogenesis and the underlying mechanism is unclear. Using immunohistochemical staining, we quantified expressions of NOV, pS6, Vimentin and E-cadherin in 66 bladder cancer and 10(More)
A personalized online library user training system is built. Users can do self-training, group discussions, self-testing, personal views etc in the system. To make a friendly interface of the system, users will get interested in learning various retrieval skills and other resources. Taking the Library of Mudanjiang Medical University as the example, we(More)
