Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), a major polyphenol in green tea, has been considered a potential therapeutic and chemopreventive agent for cancer. Glioma is a malignant tumor with high mortality but effective therapy has not yet been developed. In this study, we found that EGCG induced apoptosis in U251 glioma cells via the laminin receptor (molecular(More)
Glioma is the most common primary central nervous system tumor. Despite considerable research effort, little progress has been made in the therapeutic treatment of this disease. Protein kinase Cε (PKCε), an important intracellular signaling molecule, modulates diverse cellular functions, including cell proliferation, apoptosis, invasion and differentiation.(More)
Gliomas are the most common type of primary brain tumors. Despite the improvement in current treatments for gliomas, including surgical resection, radiation, and chemotherapy, there has been very little progress in curing this kind of disease. Stat3 is a member of signal transducer and activator of transcription family. It plays an important role in(More)
Increasing the freedom of communication using conventional row/column (RC) P300 paradigm by naive way (increasing matrix size) may deteriorate inherent distraction effect and interaction speed. In this paper, we propose a two-level predictive (TLP) paradigm by integrating a 3×3 two-level matrix paradigm with a statistical language model. The TLP paradigm is(More)
—Compared with traditional images, high-resolution images obtained by unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) are superior in many aspects such as low cost, convenience and so on. However, the attitude of unmanned aerial vehicles cannot be determined accurately, which will lead to the decrease of accuracy and efficiency of automatic matching, so image pre-processing(More)
Malignant gliomas are highly invasive tumours associated with high levels of mortality, and the treatment of gliomas remains a major neurosurgical challenge. Stat3, a member of the signal transducer and activator of transcription family, has a critical role in a variety of cancer cells. We have previously shown that downregulation of Stat3 decreases(More)
Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) have been widely used to capture and down-link real-time videos/images. However, their role as a low-cost airborne platform for capturing high-resolution, geo-referenced still imagery has not been fully utilized. The images obtained from UAV are advantageous over remote sensing images as they can be obtained at a low cost and(More)
—At present, satellite and aerial remote sensing are common ways to collect data for territorial resources monitoring in most countries, but they are not effective or rapid enough. Compared with traditional ways of obtaining images, the UAV based platform for photogrammetry and remote sensing is a more flexible and easy way to provide high-resolution images(More)
Structural health monitoring with wireless sensor networks has been increasingly popular in recent years because of the convenience. In this paper, a real-time monitoring system for cracks on the surface of reactor containment buildings is presented. Customized wireless sensor networks platforms are designed and implemented with sensors especially for crack(More)
