In the paper, we propose a robust and fast image denoising method. The approach integrates both Non-Local means algorithm and Laplacian Pyramid. Given an image to be denoised, we first decompose it into Laplacian pyramid. Exploiting the redundancy property of Laplacian pyramid, we then perform non-local means on every level image of Laplacian pyramid.(More)
Gold nanoparticles modified with nuclear localization peptides were synthesized and evaluated for their subcellular distribution in HeLa human cervical epithelium cells, 3T3/NIH murine fibroblastoma cells, and HepG2 human hepatocarcinoma cells. Video-enhanced color differential interference contrast microscopy and transmission electron microscopy indicated(More)
Adult neurogenesis is thought to be crucial for preserving cognitive functions, which is tightly controlled by various epigenetic regulators. As the methyltransferase of histone H3K27, the role of Ezh2 in neurogenesis of adult mice and its mechanism of action are largely unknown. Here, we show that Ezh2 is expressed in actively dividing neural stem cells(More)
SUV39H1, the first identified histone lysine methyltransferase in human, is involved in chromatin modification and gene regulation. SUV39H1 contains a chromodomain in its N-terminus, which potentially plays a role in methyl-lysine recognition and SUV39H1 targeting. In this study, the structure of the chromodomain of human SUV39H1 was determined by X-ray(More)
Gold nanoparticles have shown great promise as therapeutics, therapeutic delivery vectors, and intracellular imaging agents. For many biomedical applications, selective cell and nuclear targeting are desirable, and these remain a significant practical challenge in the use of nanoparticles in vivo. This challenge is being addressed by the incorporation of(More)
A mediator-free phenol biosensor was developed. The low-isoelectric point tyrosinase was adsorbed on the surface of high-isoelectric point ZnO nanoparticles (nano-ZnO) facilitated by the electrostatic interactions and then immobilized on the glassy carbon electrode via the film forming by chitosan. It was found that the nano-ZnO matrix provided an(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the diagnosis and differential diagnosis of renal epithelial neoplasms. METHODS Ninety-one cases of renal epithelial neoplasms with detailed pathologic records were enrolled. In addition to microscopic examination, Mowy's colloidal iron staining and immunohistochemical studies (CD10, vimentin and CK7) were also performed. RESULTS(More)
AIM Recent studies have shown that l-tetrahydropalmatine (l-THP), an active component of Corydolis yanhusuo, can inhibit the development of the conditional place preference induced by opioid receptor agonists, but the effects of l-THP on locomotor sensitivity induced by opioid receptor agonists have not been documented. In the present study, the effects of(More)
AIM Cobratoxin (CTX), the long-chain alpha-neurotoxin from Thailand cobra venom, has been demonstrated to have analgesic action in rodent pain models. The present study evaluated the anti-inflammatory and anti-nociceptive effects of CTX on adjuvant arthritis (AA) in rats. METHODS Arthritis was induced by injection of complete Freund's adjuvant (CFA) in(More)
MicroRNA (miRNA)-related single nucleotide polymorphisms (miR-SNPs) can affect cancer development, treatment efficacy and patients prognosis. We examined 6 miR-SNPs in miRNA processing machinery genes including exportin 5 (XPO5) (rs11077), Ran-GTPase (RAN) (rs14035), Dicer (rs3742330), Trinucleotide Repeat Containing 6B (TNRC6B) (rs9623117), GEMIN3(More)
