Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) regulates NF-kappaB during infection by a variety of mechanisms. For example, the HCMV gene product, UL144, is known to activate NF-kappaB in a tumor necrosis factor receptor (TNFR)-associated factor 6 (TRAF6)-dependent manner, causing the upregulation of the chemokine CCL22 (MDC). Viral UL144 is expressed from the UL/b' region(More)
Identification of the factors critical to the tumor-initiating cell (TIC) state may open new avenues in cancer therapy. Here we show that the metabolic enzyme glycine decarboxylase (GLDC) is critical for TICs in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). TICs from primary NSCLC tumors express high levels of the oncogenic stem cell factor LIN28B and GLDC, which are(More)
The tumour-initiating cell (TIC) model accounts for phenotypic and functional heterogeneity among tumour cells. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are regulatory molecules frequently aberrantly expressed in cancers, and may contribute towards tumour heterogeneity and TIC behaviour. More recent efforts have focused on miRNAs as diagnostic or therapeutic targets. Here, we(More)
Replication service in Distributed Systems can reduce access latency and bandwidth consumption. When different nodes hold replicas accessed, there will be a significant benefit by selecting the best replica. Most of the existed replication strategies deal with the prediction of the response time. However, these strategies do not take fully into account the(More)
