Soluble factors such as polypeptide growth factors, mitogenic lipids, inflammatory cytokines, and hormones are known regulators of cell proliferation. However, the effect of mechanical stimuli on… Expand
Comparison of toxicities from three metal oxide nanoparticles at environmental relevant concentrations in nematode Caenorhabditis elegans.
Nematode Caenorhabditis elegans has been developed in a variety of environmental studies to address adverse effects of a wide range of toxicants. In the present study, we compared the toxicities of… Expand

A juvenile hormone acid methyltransferase (JHAMT) was isolated as an abundant EST in a library of the corpora allata of the adult female mosquito Aedes aegypti. Its full length cDNA encodes a 278-aa… Expand
miR-129-3p controls cilia assembly by regulating CP110 and actin dynamics
Ciliogenesis requires the removal of CP110 from the mother centriole; actin dynamics also influence ciliation, at least partly by affecting the centrosomal accumulation of ciliogenic membrane… Expand
Highly sensitive sequencing reveals dynamic modifications and activities of small RNAs in mouse oocytes and early embryos
Expression, modification, and activity of microRNAs are dynamically regulated in early mouse embryos unveiled by sensitive sequencing. Small RNAs play important roles in early embryonic development.… Expand
Dealing with Uncertainty: A Survey of Theories and Practices
Uncertainty accompanies our life processes and covers almost all fields of scientific studies. Two general categories of uncertainty, namely, aleatory uncertainty and epistemic uncertainty, exist in… Expand
