Cancer metastasis becomes an initial cause of cancer death in human population. In many cancers, it has been shown that the high levels of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-2 and/or MMP-9 are associated with the invasive phenotypes of cancer cells. In this study, we investigated the effects of cantharidin, a derivative of blister beetles which is one of the(More)
The elusiveness of the mechanism underlying pain is a major impediment in developing effective clinical treatments. We examined whether the phosphorylation of spinal serum- and glucocorticoid-inducible kinase 1 (SGK1) and downstream glutamate receptor interacting protein (GRIP)-associated protein-1 (GRASP-1)/Rab4-dependent GluR1-containing(More)
Unexpected environmental and social stimuli could trigger stress. Although coping with stress is essential for survival, long-term stress impacts visceral functions, and therefore, it plays a role in the development and exacerbation of symptoms of gastrointestinal/urogenital disorders. The aim of this study is to characterize the role of corticosterone in(More)
Casticin is one of the main components from Fructus Viticis, which is widely used as an anti-inflammatory agent. The mechanism of how casticin affects melanoma cell migration and invasion is still not well known. Here we studied the anti-metastasis effects of casticin on A375.S2 melanoma cells by using a non-lethal concentration. First; we used an adhesion(More)
One anticancer strategy suggests targeting mitochondrial metabolism to trigger cell death through slowing down energy production from the Warburg effect. Fenofibrate is a clinical lipid-lowering agent and an effective anticancer drug. In the present study, we demonstrate that fenofibrate provided novel mechanisms for delaying oral tumor development via the(More)
Metabolic reprogramming plays a crucial role in the development of cancer. The aim of this study was to explore the effect of fenofibrate, an agonist of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPARα), on gene expression profiles of mitochondrial energy metabolism. Our results showed that PPARα expression was negatively correlated with tumor(More)
OBJECTIVE To correlate the objective cephalometric measurements with subjective facial esthetics in patients with bimaxillary protrusion. MATERIALS AND METHODS The sample consisted of 60 Asian-Chinese patients with bimaxillary protrusion who met the inclusion criteria. The facial esthetics of posttreatment profile and the change of profile on standardized(More)
Keywords: Order-driven Liquidity cost Zero-intelligence traders Agent-based artificial stock market We developed an order-driven agent-based artificial stock market to analyze the liquidity costs of market orders in the Taiwan Stock Market (TWSE). The agent-based stock market was based on the DFGIS model proposed by Daniels, Farmer, Gillemot, Iori and Smith(More)
