This work focuses on the moving target localization problem in the noncoherent multiple-input multiple-output radar system with widely separated antennas. We assume that the time delay and Doppler shift between each transmit/receive element pair have already been measured by a preprocessing algorithm. Utilizing these measurements, an explicit method for(More)
Saccharomyces cerevisiae Yap1 protein is an AP1-like transcription factor involved in the regulation of the oxidative stress response. An ortholog of Yap1, MoAP1, was recently identified from the rice blast fungus Magnaporthe oryzae genome. We found that MoAP1 is highly expressed in conidia and during invasive hyphal growth. The Moap1 mutant was sensitive(More)
Mixed-lineage kinase 3 (MLK3) functions as a MAPKKK to activate multiple MAPK pathways. Our current studies demonstrate that lack of MLK3 blocks signaling of activated Cdc42 to JNK, giving strong support for the idea that Cdc42 is a physiological activator of MLK3. We show herein that Cdc42, in a prenylation-dependent manner, targets MLK3 from a perinuclear(More)
Clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) cell lines with distinct metastatic potential are essential to study the mechanism of ccRCC metastasis. However, none of them originated from Chinese. Primary cell cultures were performed using a primary tumor of a 49-year-old male ccRCC patient and a metastatic tumor of a 62-year-old male patient who had received(More)
A bacterial isolate, designated strain TS3(T), was isolated from soil collected from a metal mine in Tieshan District, Daye City, Hubei Province, in central China. Cells of this strain were Gram-negative, motile and rod-shaped. The strain had ubiquinone Q-8 as the predominant respiratory quinone, phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylglycerol and(More)
The novel multitargeted tyrosine kinase inhibitor sunitinib is used as an antiangiogenic agent for the treatment of several types of cancer, including metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Sunitinib was shown to positively change the immunosuppressive phenotype in RCC patients. To improve its antitumor efficacy, and offer strategies for its combination(More)
Although there is a correlation between hypertension and levels of interleukin (IL) 6, the exact role this cytokine plays in myocardial remodeling is unknown. This is complicated by the variable tissue and circulating levels of IL-6 reported in numerous experimental models of hypertension. Accordingly, we explored the hypothesis that elevated levels of IL-6(More)
Periostin (POSTN) expression in cancer cells and circulation has been related to poor prognosis of colorectal carcinoma (CRC). However, the role of POSTN expressed in intra-tumoral stroma on CRC progression remains largely unknown. This study enrolled 1098 CRC patients who received surgical treatment in Shanghai and Guangzhou, Mainland China. In Shanghai(More)
CD44 is a major cell surface receptor for the glycosaminoglycan hyaluronan (HA). Native high molecular weight hyaluronan (nHA) and oligosaccharides of hyaluronan (oHA) provoke distinct biological effects upon binding to CD44. Despite the importance of such interactions, however, the feature of binding with CD44 at the cell surface and the molecular basis(More)
BACKGROUND mTOR signaling pathway and its downstream serine/threonine kinase p70S6k were frequently activated in human cancers. The dysregulation of the mTOR pathway has been found to be a contributing factor of a variety of different cancer. To investigate the role of mTOR signal pathway in the stepwise development of gastric carcinomas, we analyzed the(More)
