β-catenin is a master regulator in the cellular biology of development and neoplasia. Its dysregulation is implicated as a driver of colorectal carcinogenesis and the epithelial-mesenchymal transition in other cancers. Nuclear β-catenin staining is a poor prognostic sign in synovial sarcoma, the most common soft-tissue sarcoma in adolescents and young(More)
Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) have variable expression levels of a series of genes that affect their pluripotent potential, but the regulatory mechanisms controlling reprogramming remain unclear. By testing the efficiency of iPSC generation using Oct4, Sox2, Klf4 (termed OSK) plus one additional gene, we found that Rab32 improved reprogramming(More)
The direct transformation of cellulose, which is the main component of lignocellulosic biomass, into building-block chemicals is the key to establishing biomass-based sustainable chemical processes. Only limited successes have been achieved for such transformations under mild conditions. Here we report the simple and efficient chemocatalytic conversion of(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of psychological stress on temporomandibular disorder (TMD). STUDY DESIGN A communication box was used to induce psychological stress (PS) in rats. Then, the ultrastructure of temporomandibular was observed using scanning electron microscopy. Interleukin-1 (IL-1) and IL-6 were measured(More)
Dengue fever is a disease in many parts of the tropics and subtropics and about half the world’s population is at risk of infection according to the World Health Organization. Dengue is caused by any of the four related dengue virus serotypes DEN-1, -2, -3 and -4, which are transmitted to people by Aedes aegypti mosquitoes. Currently there is only one(More)
The transformation of cellulose or cellulose-derived carbohydrates into platform chemicals is the key to establish biomass-based sustainable chemical processes. The systems able to catalyze the conversion of cellulose into key chemicals in water without the consumption of hydrogen are limited. We report that simple vanadyl (VO(2+)) cations catalyze the(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate whether low-intensity ultrasound accelerates healing in bone tissues close to dental implants with osteoradionecrosis (ORN) of the mandible and is suitable for development as a therapy in patients with dental implants receiving radiotherapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Dog models of radiative bone injury surrounding dental implants in(More)
This work studies the electrical and testing reliability issues of Cu<inf>x</inf>O based RRAM (Resistive Random Access Memory). Firstly, we study the most important electrical reliability issue-data retention capability, and propose a filament/charge trap combined model to clarify the retention failure mechanism. Secondly, we respectively study the(More)
The hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a major etiologic agent for severe liver diseases (e.g. cirrhosis, fibrosis and hepatocellular carcinoma). Approximately 140 million people have chronic HCV infections and about 500 000 die yearly from HCV-related liver pathologies. To date, there is no licensed vaccine available to prevent HCV infection and production of a(More)
Many arable lands have accumulated large reserves of residual phosphorus (P) and a relatively large proportion of soil P is less available for uptake by plants. Root released organic anions are widely documented as a key physiological strategy to enhance P availability, while limited information has been generated on the contribution of rhizosphere organic(More)
