The mammalian Janus kinase (JAK) family consists of four members, namely JAK1, JAK2, JAK3 and TYK2, which play a critical role in cytokine/growth factor signaling and is increasingly associated with human cancers. Aberrant activation of these non-receptor tyrosine kinases may contribute to carcinogenesis. Herein, we focused on exploring the potential role(More)
BACKGROUND Gallstone disease has been regarded as an obesity-related disease. Therefore, we hypothesized that leptin and adiponectin, mainly produced by adipose tissue, may play roles in gallstone disease. PATIENTS AND METHODS The RIA method was used to analyze serum leptin and adiponectin levels of 90 gallstone patients and 91 healthy subjects. RESULTS(More)

An ω-language over a finite alphabet X is a set of infinite sequences of letters of X. Consider congruences IL and Pω, L on X* and a congruence OL on X introduced by an ω-language L. IL, Pω, L, and OL are called the infinitary syntactic-congruence, the principal congruence and the ω-syntactic congruence of L, respectively. If IL (Pω, L, OL) is the equality(More)
