MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are non-coding small RNAs that play roles in regulating gene expression. Some miRNAs have been classed as epigenetic regulators of metabolism and energy homeostasis. Previous reports indicated that the miRNAs miR-27a and miR-143 were involved in lipid metabolism in human and rodents. To determine the roles of porcine miR-27a and miR-143(More)
Hypertrophic scars and keloid are dermal proliferative disorders in wound healing. Transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta) has been implicated in scar formation through the activation of fibroblasts and the acceleration of collagen deposition. Our study aimed to design a novel truncated (27-123 residues) type II TGF-beta receptor (tTGFbetaRII) and to(More)
Compared to normal aging adults, individuals with amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI) have significantly increased risk for progressing into Alzheimer's disease (AD). Autopsy studies found that most of the brains of aMCI cases showed anatomical features associated with AD pathology. The recent development of non-invasive neuroimaging technique, such(More)
Functional differences in the different types of adipose tissue and the impact of their dysfunction on metabolism are associated with the regional distribution of adipose depots. Here we show a genome-wide comparison between the transcriptomes of one source of subcutaneous and two sources of visceral adipose tissue in the pig using an RNA-seq approach. We(More)
OBJECTIVE To test the effects of salidroside on formation and growth of glioma together with tumor microenvironment. METHODS Salidroside extracted from Rhodiola rosea was purified and treated on human glioma cells U251 at the concentration of 20 µg/mL. 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-dephenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay for cytotoxicity and flow(More)
The current study investigated the effects of acupuncture at Zu-San-Li (ST36) on the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis during ethanol withdrawal in rats. Rats were intraperitoneally treated with 3 g/kg/day of ethanol or saline for 28 days. Following 24 hours of ethanol withdrawal, acupuncture was applied at bilateral ST36 points or non-acupoints (tail)(More)
Data Mining of time series is a very important part of DM (Data Mining).This article proposes a trend extraction method of financial time series which are non-stationary and non-linear. And this article also gives the definition of trend of time series based on different time intervals and the criterion to measure the precision of the trend extracted.(More)
Skeletal and cardiac muscle have important roles in glucose uptake and utilization. However, changes in expression of protein coding genes and miRNAs that participate in glucose metabolism during development are not fully understood. In this study, we investigated the expression of genes related to glucose metabolism during muscle development. We found an(More)
Some polymorphisms in the fibroblast growth factor receptor 4 gene (FGFR-4) have been correlated with coronary artery disease, however, the role of polymorphisms in the FGFR-4 gene in ischemic stroke remain unknown. A total of 270 patients with ischemic stroke and 297 controls were recruited. Stroke subtype was classified and clinical severity of stroke in(More)
Currently, a number of yeast genomes with different physiological features have been sequenced and annotated, which provides invaluable information to investigate yeast genetics, evolutionary mechanism, structure and function of gene families. YeastWeb is a novel database created to provide access to gene families derived from the available yeast genomes by(More)
