Interleukin-17 (IL-17) is a proinflammatory cytokine that is associated with inflammation, autoimmune disorders, and even tumors. Previous studies revealed that a large group of human malignant tumors have abnormally high IL-17 expression. In the present study, we analyzed two single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the IL17A (rs2275913) and IL17F(More)
BACKGROUND Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is a disease often manifests in mid to late pregnancy with symptoms including hyperglycemia, insulin resistance and fetal mal-development. The C57BL/KsJ-Lep (db/+) (db/+) mouse is a genetic GDM model that closely mimicked human GDM symptoms. Resveratrol (RV) is a naturally existing compound that has been(More)
High temperature sensors capable of operating in harsh environments are needed in order to prevent disasters caused by structural or system functional failures due to increasing temperatures. Most existing temperature sensors do not satisfy the needs because they require either physical contact or a battery power supply for signal communication, and(More)
BACKGROUND MicroRNAs are now recognized as key post-transcriptional regulators in animal ontogenesis and phenotypic diversity. Eupolyphaga sinensis Walker (Blattaria) is a sexually dimorphic insect, which is also an important source of material used in traditional Chinese medicine. The male E. sinensis have shorter lifecycles and go through fewer instars(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies in experimental and human heart failure showed that nuclear factor kappa B (NF-kappaB) is chronically activated in cardiac myocytes, suggesting an important involvement of NF-kappaB in the cardiac remodeling process. A common insertion/deletion (-94 insertion/deletion ATTG, rs28362491) located between two putative key promoter(More)
Interleukin-32 (IL-32), a pro-inflammatory chemokine, has been reported to be involved in inflammatory, infectious diseases and even cancers. This study aimed to investigate whether two genetic variants (rs28372698 and rs12934561) of IL-32 were associated with susceptibility to endometrial cancer (EC) in Chinese Han women by a hospital-based study with 272(More)
This pilot case-control study was conducted to test the hypothesis that the TATC (rs71682890) and CAA (rs34917480) insertion/deletion polymorphisms of RTN4 3’-UTR are associated with the susceptibility to uterine leiomyoma (UL). The study recruited 286 premenopausal women with UL and 450 unrelated postmenopausal women not presenting the disease as control(More)
Duchenne muscular dystrophy is the most common genetic muscle disease. Affected muscles are characterized by abnormal acetylcholine receptor (AChR) clustering. Some studies have suggested that changes in AChR clusters are secondary to degenerative processes. In this study, we demonstrate that AChR cluster fragmentation and muscle degeneration are separate(More)
MicroRNA (miR)-143 and miR-145 have been identified as molecular regulators in cell proliferation, cell growth, clone formation, apoptosis, cell cycle, invasion, and migration. We previously found that rs353292 in the flanking region of miR-143/145 showed a high frequency in patients with colorectal cancer (CRC). To identify whether the rs353292(More)
