This paper uses the panel data (1994-2005) of all provinces in China and takes the important factors (investment, import and export, human capital, FDI, government expenditure and so on) which impact China’s economic growth as control variables, employing the two-way fixed-effect model and GMM method (Panel Generalized Method of Moments) to estimate(More)
Histone lysine methyltransferase NSD2 (WHSC1/MMSET) is overexpressed frequently in multiple myeloma due to the t(4;14) translocation associated with 15% to 20% of cases of this disease. NSD2 has been found to be involved in myelomagenesis, suggesting it may offer a novel therapeutic target. Here we show that NSD2 methyltransferase activity is crucial for(More)
High-frequency (>20 MHz) ultrasound (HFUS) imaging systems have made it possible to image small structures with fine spatial resolution. They find a variety of biomedical applications in dermatology, ophthalmology, intravascular imaging, and small-animal imaging. One critical technical challenge of HFUS is to generate high-voltage, high-frequency pulsed(More)
SETDB1, a histone methyltransferase responsible for methylation of histone H3 lysine 9 (H3K9), is involved in maintenance of embryonic stem (ES) cells and early embryonic development of the mouse. However, how SETDB1 regulates gene expression during development is largely unknown. Here, we characterized genome-wide SETDB1 binding and H3K9 trimethylation(More)
A series of room-temperature ionic liquids (RTILs) containing different functional groups such as hydroxyl, nitrile, carboxyl, and thiol attached to imidazolium cations, combined with various anions such as chloride [Cl], tetrafluoroborate [BF(4)], hexafluorophosphate [PF(6)], and bis[(trifluoromethyl)sulfonyl]imide [Tf(2)N], have been successfully(More)
In this work, poly (diallyldimethylammonium chloride) (PDDA)-capped gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) functionalized graphene (G)/multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) nanocomposites were fabricated. Based on the electrostatic attraction, the G/MWCNTs hybrid material can be decorated with AuNPs uniformly and densely. The new hierarchical nanostructure can provide(More)
Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) play an active role in facilitating the invasion of cancer cells with excessive extracellular matrix (ECM) degradation. In the present study, we investigated the antiinvasive effects of isorhamnetin, a naturally occurring flavonoid, on MDA-MB-231 human breast carcinoma cells. The results indicated that isorhamnetin(More)
Deep tissue injuries (DTI) involve damages in the subcutaneous tissues under intact skin incurred by prolonged excessive epidermal loadings. This paper presents a new theoretical model for the development of DTI, broadly based on the experimental evidence in the literatures. The model covers the loading damages implicitly inclusive of both the direct(More)
Secretomics is receiving more and more considerable attention due to the key roles of secreted proteins in cancer. Most of the potential biomarkers for clinical diagnosis and treatment of cancer are secreted proteins. However, the low concentration of secreted proteins and contaminants released from dead cells are a great challenge to secretomic profiling(More)
