BACKGROUND As a kind of versatility of cytokines, overexpression of macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) and vascular endothelial growth factor-C (VEGF-C) have been reported in a wide variety of tumors. However, the correlation and mechanism between MIF and VEGF-C are still not clear. As an important signal transduction system, MAPK signaling(More)
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is known to be associated with microcirculatory injury, capillary blockage, and disruption of the blood–brain barrier. Endothelial dysfunction has also been reported to be associated with AD, but the underlying mechanisms remain to be elucidated. Endothelial protein C receptor (EPCR) is an N-glycosylated type I membrane protein that(More)
A novel design of an atomic force microscope (AFM) with a (1-x)Pb(Mg 1/3 Nb 2/3)O 3-xPbTiO 3 (PMN-PT) single crystal scanner and a self-sensing cantilever is presented in this paper. The piezoelectric scanner and the self-sensing cantilever are integrated into a small-sized all-in-one structure with a microscope objective focused on the tip. The Z-scanner(More)
