Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most malignant and common brain tumor; it is aggressive growth pattern means that GBM patients face a poor prognosis even when receiving the best available treatment modalities. In recent years, an increasing number of reports suggest that the discovery of microRNAs (miRNAs) might provide a novel therapeutic target for(More)
Radioresistance remains a major challenge in the treatment of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). Recent data strongly suggests the important role of miRNAs in cancer progression and therapeutic response. Here, we have established a radioresistant human GBM cell line U87R derived from parental U87 and found miR-135b expression was upregulated in U87R cells.(More)
Mood stabilizer valproic acid (VPA), a widely used antiepileptic drug that has been demonstrated neuroprotective effect against various insults through multiple signaling pathways. The role of VPA in traumatic brain injury (TBI) remains unclear. In the present study, we investigated the neuroprotective potency of VPA for protection against TBI in adult(More)
Feature reduction (FR) methods can effectively reduce the feature set and improve the accuracy for land cover classification (LCC) using high resolution remote sensing data with high dimensional or strongly correlated feature sets. However, FR methods have rarely been applied for LCC in arid regions with complex geographic environments, especially for the(More)
Temozolomide (TMZ) is the most commonly used alkylating agent in glioma chemotherapy. However growing resistance to TMZ remains a major challenge to clinicians. The DNA repair protein O6-methylguanine-DNA methytransferase (MGMT) plays critical roles in TMZ resistance. Promoter methylation can inhibit MGMT expression and increase chemosensitivity. Here, we(More)
Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the most common primary brain cancer in adults, is usually the most lethal type of brain tumor. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of small, non-coding RNA molecules that deeply involves with the regulation of gene expression and cellular processes, including proliferation, apoptosis, migration and invasion. The objective of the(More)
