Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most prevalent subtype of liver cancer, and it is characterized by a high rate of recurrence and heterogeneity. Liver cancer stem cells (CSCs) may well contribute to both of these pathological properties, but the mechanisms underlying their self-renewal and maintenance are poorly understood. Here, using transcriptome(More)
Liver cancer stem cells (CSCs) may contribute to the high rate of recurrence and heterogeneity of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC); however, the molecular mechanisms underlying their self-renewal and differentiation remain largely unknown. Through analysis of transcriptome microarray data, we identified a long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) called lnc-β-Catm, which(More)
A progressive tubulointerstitial nephropathy is mainly induced by aristolochic acid I (AAI), but a comprehensive understanding of this process is still missing. By using mouse primary renal tubular epithelial cells (RTECs) cultured in vitro and combining with two AAI treatment types (dose-response studies and time-response studies), we sought to investigate(More)
| Automotive emissions are severely regulated. Since 1980, a three-way catalyst (TWC) has been used to convert harmful emissions of hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, and oxides of nitrogen into less harmful gases in order to meet these regulations. The TWC's e ciency of conversion of these gases is primarily dependent on the mass ratio of air to fuel (A=F ) in(More)
Liver cancer stem cells (CSCs) may contribute to the high rate of recurrence and heterogeneity of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, the biology of hepatic CSCs remains largely undefined. Through analysis of transcriptome microarray data, we identify a long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) called lncBRM, which is highly expressed in liver CSCs and HCC tumours.(More)
Liver cancer stem cells (CSCs) have been identified and shown to have self-renewal and differentiation properties; however, the biology of these hepatic CSCs remains largely unknown. Here, we analyzed transcriptome gene expression profiles of liver CSCs and non-CSCs from hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cells lines and found that the transcription factor (TF)(More)
Accumulating evidence has suggested that microRNAs (miRNAs) may play potential role as ideal diagnostic indicators of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). However, previous studies have met discrepant results. Thus, we conducted this meta-analysis to assess the potential diagnostic value of miRNAs for ESCC. A systematic literature search was conducted(More)
A control oriented dynamic model of the Lean NOx Trap (LNT) behavior has been developed in SIMULINK. The model simulates the trapping and purging phenomena and includes the important parameters which affect the LNT behavior. These include the trap temperature, trapping and purging duration, air fuel ratios and the mass flow rates of the exhaust gases.(More)
Northeast China is located at high northern latitudes and is a typical region of relatively high sensitivity to global climate change. Studies of the land surface phenology in Northeast China and its response to climate change are important for understanding global climate change. In this study, the land surface phenology parameters were calculated using(More)
Lipopolysaccharides (LPSs) activate the innate immune response during Gram-negative bacterial infections through the Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4)/myeloid differentiation protein 2 (MD-2) complex. MD-2 binds LPS with high affinity and is critical for TLR4-dependent signal transduction. However, the exact role of MD-2 on LPS signal transduction and cytokine(More)
