Our previous study indicated that DEK protein was overexpressed in colorectal carcinoma (CRC) compared with the normal colorectal mucosa. DEK was also significantly correlated with the prognostic characteristics of patients with CRC, demonstrating that DEK played an important role in CRC progression. In this work, we evaluate the effects of DEK on(More)
Insulin-like growth factor-II mRNA-binding protein 3 (IMP3) has been recently identified as a marker of aggressive behavior in several types of tumors. The aim of the present study was to detect the expression of the IMP3 protein in colorectal adenocarcinoma (CRA) and to identify a correlation with the clinicopathological features of the disease. IMP3 was(More)
Aluminum (Al) toxicity is a major factor limiting plant growth in acid soils. Elevated atmospheric CO2 [CO2] enhances plant growth. However, there is no report on the effect of elevated [CO2] on growth of plant genotypes differing in Al tolerance grown in acid soils. We investigated the effect of short-term elevated [CO2] on growth of Al-tolerant (ET8) and(More)
To improve the prediction of essential ecosystem functioning under future environmental disturbances, it is of significance to identify responses of soil microorganisms to environmental stresses. In this study, we collected polluted soil samples from field plots with eight copper levels ranging from 0 to 3,200 mg Cu kg−1 soil. Then, the soils with 0 and(More)
Little knowledge is available about the influence of cation competition and metal speciation on trivalent chromium (Cr(III)) toxicity. In the present study, the effects of pH and selected cations on the toxicity of trivalent chromium (Cr(III)) to barley (Hordeum vulgare) root elongation were investigated to develop an appropriate biotic ligand model (BLM).(More)
In order to examine the role of insulin-like growth factor II mRNA-binding protein 3 (IMP3) expression for the prognostic evaluation of non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC), a total of 186 breast cancer patients, with adjacent non-tumor lung tissues, were selected for immunohisto-chemical staining of IMP3 protein. The NSCLC tissues and paired adjacent(More)
Soil soluble nickel (Ni) concentration is very important for determining soil Ni toxicity. In the present study, the relationships between soil properties, total and soluble Ni concentrations in soils were developed in a wide range of soils with different properties and climate characteristics. The multiple regressions showed that soil pH and total soil Ni(More)
Considerable information on copper (Cu) ecotoxicity as affected by biological species and abiotic properties of soils has been collected from the last decade in the present study. The information on bioavailability/ecotoxicity, species sensitivity and differences in laboratory and field ecotoxicity of Cu in different soils was collated and integrated to(More)
Copper contamination on China's arable land could pose severe economic, ecological and healthy consequences in the coming decades. As the drivers in maintaining ecosystem functioning, the responses of soil microorganisms to long-term copper contamination in different soil ecosystems are still debated. This study investigated the impacts of copper gradients(More)
Fig 1 is incorrect. The order of " Fit SSD curves and calculate HCx " and " Normalize corrected data with Cu ecotoxicity predictive models " should be switched. The authors have provided a corrected version here. Fig 1. Schematic framework used for derivation of soil Cu ecological criteria. Copyright: © 2015 Wang et al. This is an open access article(More)
