Query (e.g., shortest path) on road networks has been extensively studied. Although most of the existing query processing approaches are designed for centralized environments, there is a growing need to handle queries on road networks in distributed environments due to the increasing query workload and the challenge of querying large networks. In this(More)
Spatial-keyword queries on road networks are receiving increasing attention with the prominence of location-based services. There is a growing need to handle queries on road networks in distributed environments because a large network is typically distributed over multiple machines and it will improve query throughput. However, all the existing work on(More)
The reduction of hippocampal volume remains controversial in depression because of the variability among individuals in clinical studies. Here, a reliable experimental rat model of depression, established by chronic unpredictable mild stress (CUMS), was used. Thirty rats were randomly divided into two groups (CUMS group and control group). Hippocampal(More)
Macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) is important in regulating cell proliferation and apoptosis in both normal and cancerous cells, and may be important in cancer progression and metastasis. In human non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), the underlying mechanisms responsible for MIF-dependent regulation of cellular proliferation, and cell death(More)
BACKGROUND Limbic structural changes have been found in people with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). However, the results were controversial, and no study has examined the hippocampal and amygdala volume changes in parents with or without PTSD who had lost their only child and could no longer conceive in China. METHODS Hippocampal and amygdala(More)
BACKGROUND The volumetry of the hippocampal subregion may provide additional information in the early investigation of amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI) and the T2 signal intensity (T2-SI) of the hippocampal subregion has not been well studied quantitatively by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in aMCI. METHODS Using combined MRI-based hippocampal(More)
Figure 1 siRNA-mediated knockdown of MIF expression in H460 cells detected by Western blot. (A) is a western blot of MIF expression in H460 cells treated with NC and two MIF siRNAs for 48 hours. In MIF siRNA-transfected H460 cells, we observed an approximately two (siRNA 1) to five (siRNA2) fold weaker signal of MIF protein expression compared with the(More)
