Independent component analysis (ICA) proves to be effective in the removing the ocular artifact from electroencephalogram recordings (EEG). While using ICA in ocular artifact correction, a crucial step is to correctly identify the artifact components among the decomposed independent components. In most previous works, this step of selecting the artifact(More)
The ability to switch between different morphological forms is an important feature of Candida albicans and is relevant to its pathogenesis. Many conserved positive and negative transcription factors are involved in morphogenetic regulation of the two dimorphic fungi Candida albicans and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. In S. cerevisiae, the transcriptional(More)
Protein kinases are important regulators in biologic processes. Aberrant expression of protein kinases often causes diseases including cancer. In the present study, we found that the serine-arginine protein kinase 1 (SRPK1) might be involved in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) proliferation from a kinome screen using a loss-of-function approach. In clinical(More)
UNLABELLED Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most common cancers and shows a propensity to metastasize and infiltrate adjacent and more distant tissues. However, the mechanisms that contribute to tumor metastasis remain unclear. Here we evaluate the effect of Argonaute2 (Ago2), a member of the Ago gene family that plays a role in short(More)
An uninterrupted three-phase dynamic voltage restorer based on three-phase four-wire inverter is described in this paper. A rectifier is used to supply the inverter of DVR and makes DVR compensate sags continuously. The soft phase locked loop method is used to detect the source voltage and the inverter is controlled to solve the zero sequence voltage of(More)
Candida albicans undergoes a morphological transition from yeast to hyphae in response to a variety of stimuli and growth conditions. We previously isolated a LisH domain containing transcription factor Flo8, which is essential for hyphal development in C. albicans. To search the putative binding partner of Flo8 in C. albicans, we identified C. albicans(More)
Forkhead box R2 (FOXR2), a member of forkhead box (FOX) family, has been identified as an oncogene in medulloblastoma and breast cancer recently. However, the expression and function of FOXR2 in hepatocellular carcinoma cell (HCC) are still unclear. Here, we report that FOXR2 is frequently upregulated in 25/42 (59.5 %) of HCC specimens compared with(More)
Long non-coding RNAs (LncRNAs) have been reported that play important roles in the progression and metastasis of some carcinomas. In the present study, we identified a new LncRNA, FRLnc1, from a microarray analysis in which those LncRNAs were regulated by FOXM1, an oncogene widely studied in most malignancies. Quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR) results in(More)
Candida albicans is a polymorphic human opportunistic pathogen in which the Swi-Snf complex functions as an activator whereas Tup1 acts as a general repressor during the yeast-hyphae transition. In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the interplay between the Swi-Snf complex and the Tup1-Ssn6 repressive complex regulates the balance between active and repressed(More)
In this study, oxaliplatin (OX) liposomes surface-modified with glycyrrhetinic acid (GA) were developed by the film-dispersion method. Their morphology, physical and chemical properties, and in vitro release performance were investigated. The transmission electron microscope (TEM) image showed that most liposomes were spherical particles with similar size(More)
