Monodispersed bimetallic PdAg nanoparticles can be fabricated through the emulsion-assisted ethylene glycol (EG) ternary system. Different compositions of bimetallic PdAg nanoparticles, Pd₈₀Ag₂₀, Pd₆₅Ag₃₅ and Pd₄₆Ag₅₄ can be obtained via adjusting the reaction parameters. For the formation process of the bimetallic PdAg nanoparticles, there have two-stage(More)
INTRODUCTION LDH-A, the enzyme responsible for transforming pyruvate into lactate, has been demonstrated to be up-regulated in many types of cancer and to give rise to more aggressive behavior by regulating proliferation and anti-apoptosis. However, its expression in gastric cancer (GC) has not been characterized thoroughly. The purpose of this study was to(More)
Bone morphogenetic proteins and activin membrane-bound inhibitor (BAMBI) and drosophila mothers against decapentaplegic protein 7 (Smad7) are known to negatively regulate the transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) signaling and play an important role in the progression of many malignant tumors. However, it remains unclear whether expression of BAMBI alone or(More)
Gene polymorphisms associated so far with body mass index (BMI) can explain only 1.18-1.45% of observed variation in BMI. Recent studies suggest that epigenetic modifications, especially DNA methylation, could contribute to explain part of the missing heritability, and two epigenetic genome-wide analysis studies (EWAS) have reported that Hypoxia Inducible(More)
BACKGROUND In spite of considerable advancements in our understanding of the different factors involved in achieving vocabulary-learning success, the overall pattern and interrelationships of critical factors involved in L2 vocabulary learning - particularly, the mechanisms through which learners regulate their motivation and learning strategies - remain(More)
Developing circuits for streaming applications written in C (or its variants) can benefit greatly from C-to-RTL (C2RTL) synthesis. Yet, most existing C2RTL tools lack system-level options to trade off various design constraints, such as delay and area. This article introduces a systematic way to accomplish C2RTL synthesis for streaming applications(More)
