The high-throughput next-generation sequencing technologies provide an excellent opportunity for the detection of less-abundance transcripts that may not be identifiable by previously available techniques. Here, we report a discovery of thousands of novel transcripts (mostly non-coding RNAs) that are expressed in mouse cerebrum, testis, and embryonic stem(More)
Inhomogeneity-induced magnetoresistance (IMR) reported in some non-magnetic semiconductors, particularly silicon, has generated considerable interest owing to the large magnitude of the effect and its linear field dependence (albeit at high magnetic fields). Various theories implicate spatial variation of the carrier mobility as being responsible for IMR.(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS To evaluate the expression of CXC motif chemokine receptor 4 (CXCR4) in the tissues of patients with hilar cholangiocarcinoma (hilar-CCA) and to investigate the cell proliferation and frequency of neural invasion (NI) influenced by RNAi-mediated CXCR4 silencing. METHODS An immunohistochemical technique was used to detect the expression of(More)
This Article contains errors in Fig. 3. In panel b, the axes are displaced relative to the data, and in panel c, the label 'Species-specific GD' in red should read 'Species-specific GD (tandem)'. The correct version of Fig. 3 appears below as Fig. 1.
Recovery from the Flint Water Crisis has been hindered by uncertainty in both the water testing process and the causes of contamination. In this work, we develop an ensemble of predictive models to assess the risk of lead contamination in individual homes and neighborhoods. To train these models, we utilize a wide range of data sources, including voluntary(More)
Taenia saginata, Taenia solium and Taenia asiatica (beef, pork and Asian tapeworms, respectively) are parasitic flatworms of major public health and food safety importance. Among them, T. asiatica is a newly recognized species that split from T. saginata via an intermediate host switch ∼1.14 Myr ago. Here we report the 169- and 168-Mb draft genomes of T.(More)
Vesicle fusion is executed via formation of an Ω-shaped structure (Ω-profile), followed by closure (kiss-and-run) or merging of the Ω-profile into the plasma membrane (full fusion). Although Ω-profile closure limits release but recycles vesicles economically, Ω-profile merging facilitates release but couples to classical endocytosis for recycling. Despite(More)
There are still controversies about the roles of microRNA-26a (miR-26a) in human malignancies, as it is a tumor suppressor in breast cancer, gastric cancer, and hepatocellular carcinoma, but is an oncogene in glioma and cholangiocarcinoma. Until now, the function of miR-26a in osteosarcoma remains largely elusive. Here, we found that miR-26a was(More)
Transcripts are expressed spatially and temporally and they are very complicated, precise and specific; however, most studies are focused on protein-coding related genes. Recently, massively parallel cDNA sequencing (RNA-seq) has emerged to be a new and promising tool for transcriptome research, and numbers of non-coding RNAs, especially lincRNAs, have been(More)
OBJECTIVE Perineural invasion of cholangiocarcinoma happens in the early stage of the disease but is often not recognized until its later stages. Research about the behaviour and mechanism of perineural invasion by cholangiocarcinoma is urgently needed for a useful new model. The aim of this work is to establish a novel model to address the problem. (More)
