MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a small class of non-coding RNAs that are widely dysregulated in various cancers. They act as either oncogenes or tumor suppressor genes in human cancer. The purpose of this study was to examine the expression levels of miR-15a in human breast cancer and its potential role in disease pathogenesis. The expression levels of miR-15a were(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of highly conserved, small endogenous single-strand non-coding RNAs. They are aberrantly expressed in the circulation and tissue of patients with cancer. Therefore, it has been suggested that they may act as key regulators of carcinogenesis. The aim of the present study was to examine the expression level of miR-195-5p in(More)
MicroRNAs are a class of endogenous single strand non-coding RNAs that are involved in many important physiological and pathological processes. The purpose of this study was to examine the expression levels of miR-497 in human breast cancer and its function in MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells. Quantitative polymerase chain reaction was used to measure the(More)
This study combines wavelet decomposition and independent component analysis (ICA) to extract mismatch negativity (MMN) from electroencephalography (EEG) recordings. As MMN is a small event-related potential (ERP), a systematic ICA based approach is designed, exploiting MMN's temporal, frequency and spatial information. Moreover, this study answers which(More)
OBJECTIVE Anatomical study of surgical approaches of endoscopic minimally invasive thyroidectomy (eMIT) and transoral partial parathyroidectomy (TOPP) was conducted to evaluate their safety and feasibility. MATERIAL AND METHODS After performing an eMIT- and TOPP-procedure on fresh frozen human cadavers, a layer-by-layer dissection of the floor of the(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Protein Kinase (casein kinase 2, CK2) is a pleiotropic serine-threonine kinase that is frequently dysregulated in many human tumors; microRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of small noncoding RNAs which play important roles in human cancers. This study aimed to investigate the role of CK2 and miRNA expression in breast cancer. METHODS Casein(More)
Automatic recognition of mature fruits in a complex agricultural environment is still a challenge for an autonomous harvesting robot due to various disturbances existing in the background of the image. The bottleneck to robust fruit recognition is reducing influence from two main disturbances: illumination and overlapping. In order to recognize the tomato(More)
It is important to measure the activities of the hook and the load for precision hoisting and safe operation of a tower crane. Visual monitoring and image recognition are the optimum methods for crane hook activity measuring and precision hoisting. Advanced RISC Machines (ARM) is a promising controller for field measuring and controlling of tower crane, but(More)
