This paper describes the SemEval 2016 shared task on Aspect Based Sentiment Analysis (ABSA), a continuation of the respective tasks of 2014 and 2015. In its third year, the task provided 19 training and 20 testing datasets for 8 languages and 7 domains, as well as a common evaluation procedure. From these datasets, 25 were for sentence-level and 14 for(More)
Nobiletin (5, 6, 7, 8, 3' 4'-hexamethoxyflavone) is a major anticancer component in juice from zhishi (Rutaceae). This study aimed to investigate the inhibitory effect of Nobiletin on hepatic cancer cells both in vitro and in vivo. The 3-(4, 5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2, 5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT), growth curve, and clonogenic assay showed that(More)
Sentiment analysis, which addresses the computational treatment of opinion, sentiment, and subjectivity in text, has received considerable attention in recent years. In contrast to the traditional coarse-grained sentiment analysis tasks, such as document-level sentiment classification, we are interested in the fine-grained aspect-based sentiment analysis(More)
An effective method aiming at enrichment and analysis of micro-components in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) was developed. One fraction (fraction E) from the extract of Hedyotis diffusa Willd. was selected as test sample, which was isolated by using the XAD-4 macroporous resin. To study the micro-components, a two-dimensional reverse-phase liquid(More)
Binding of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) to highly purified short side-chain porcine gastric mucin similar to human MUC6 type has been studied by ultraviolet-visible absorption spectroscopy (UV-vis), ultrafiltration isothermal titration microcalorimetry (ITC) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The thermodynamic equilibrium of EGCG binding to(More)
BACKGROUND In our previous linkage analysis of Chinese hypertensive families, a hypertension susceptibility region on chromosome 17 was located at D17S1878, which encompasses the inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) gene. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the association between variant in the human iNOS gene and susceptibility to(More)
We have previously established a cytochrome P450 4F2 (CYP4F2) transgenic mouse model. The present study elucidated the molecular foundation of hypertension by androgen-induction in this model. The renal expression of CYP4F2 in transgenic mice was highly expressed and strongly induced with 5α-dihydrotestosterone (DHT) treatment determined by Western blot.(More)
Cytochrome P450 4F2 (CYP4F2) catalyzes the omega-hydroxylation of arachidonic acid to 20-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid (20-HETE), a natriuretic and vasoactive eicosanoid that participates in the development of hypertension. The relationship among CYP4F2 genetic variants in the regulatory region, formation of renal 20-HETE, and hypertension is unknown. Here(More)
BACKGROUND X-linked hypophosphatemia (XLH) is the most common form of heritable rickets characterized by X-linked dominant inheritance, renal phosphate wasting, hypophosphatemia, and defective bone mineralization. Inactivating mutations of the PHEX gene located at Xp22.1 have been linked with this disease. Ethnic distribution of such mutations seems(More)
The generation of hyperglycemia-induced mitochondrial reactive oxygen species (ROS) is a key event in diabetic nephropathy development. The forkhead-box class O1 (FoxO1) and peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ co-activator 1α (PGC-1α) proteins are implicated in oxidative stress. We investigated the in vivo association of FoxO1 and PGC-1α in renal(More)
