The serotonin system is proposed to regulate physiology and behavior and to underlie mood disorders; nevertheless, the circuitry controlling serotonergic neurons remains uncharacterized. We therefore generated a comprehensive whole-brain atlas defining the monosynaptic inputs onto forebrain-projecting serotonergic neurons of dorsal versus median raphe based(More)
Multifunctional nanocomposites combining imaging and therapeutic functions have great potential for cancer diagnosis and therapy. In this work, we developed a novel theranostic agent based on hollow gold nanospheres (HGNs) and superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIO). Taking advantage of the excellent magnetic properties of SPIO and strong(More)
Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) plays an important role in lung cancer development and progression. Using streptavidin-agarose pulldown and proteomics assay, we identified and validated Ku80, a dimer of Ku participating in the repair of broken DNA double strands, as a new binding protein of the COX-2 gene promoter. Overexpression of Ku80 up-regulated COX-2(More)
Y-box binding protein 1 (YBX1) is involved in the multi-tumor occurrence and development. However, the regulation of YBX1 in lung tumorigenesis and the underlying mechanisms, especially its relationship with CDC25a, was remains unclear. In this study, we analyzed the expression and clinical significance of YBX1 and CDC25a in lung adenocarcinoma and(More)
The prevalence of avian H9N2 viruses throughout Asia, along with their demonstrated ability to infect mammals, puts them high on the list of influenza viruses with pandemic potential for humans. In this study, we investigated whether H9N2 viruses could infect farmed minks. First, we conducted a serological survey for avian influenza virus antibodies on a(More)
High fructose intake is associated with adverse metabolic syndromes. This study was designed to investigate whether the polysaccharides derived from Zizyphus jujube cv. Shaanbeitanzao (ZSP) could alleviate high fructose-induced insulin resistance and dyslipidemia in mice. ZSP was identified by capillary zone electrophoresis as an acidic heteropolysaccharide(More)
The inhibitors of BRAF and MEK targeting MAPK signaling pathway provide a comparatively effective therapeutic strategy for melanoma caused by BRAF mutation. However, melanoma, especially metastatic melanoma, has become one of the most threatening malignancies. Thus, the identification of exact molecular mechanisms and the key components involved in such(More)
To estimate the nationwide and regional distribution of HIV-1 genotypes in China in the past three decades, province-specific HIV-1 molecular epidemiology data were derived from 260 independent studies of HIV molecular prevalence through searching PubMed, VIP Chinese Journal Database (VIP), China National Knowledge Infrastructure, and Wanfang Data from(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine reliable predictors of outcome of biliary atresia (BA) after Kasai’s operation. This study included two consecutive stages of infants with biliary atresia. First stage, 200 BA cases who underwent Kasai’s operation at our institution between May 2006 and May 2010 were retrospectively reviewed. In the first stage, we(More)
Key-frames are representative frames in a shot. Key frame extraction is one of the basic procedures relating to video retrieval and indexing. In view of the surveillance video characteristic and the user attention focus, this paper proposed a key frame extraction method based on multi-scale phase-based local features. Prior to key frame extraction, the(More)
