Banana and its close relative, plantain are globally important crops and there is considerable interest in optimizing their cultivation. Plantain has superior cold tolerance compared with banana and a thorough understanding of the molecular mechanisms and responses of plantain to cold stress has great potential value for developing cold tolerant banana(More)
BACKGROUND Detecting small breast tumors is difficult for conventional ultrasound. The goal of this study was to assess the value of ultrasound elastography in characterizing small breast tumors and to compare its sensitivity, specificity and accuracy with conventional ultrasound. METHODS A total of 308 breast tumors less than 2 cm in size from 283(More)
Aquaporin 5 (AQP5) promotes the progression and invasion of several cancers, but its role in the tumorigenesis of human gastric carcinoma (GC) has not been clearly defined. Here, we investigated the potential functions of AQP5 in the proliferation and migration of human GC. RT-PCR and western blotting were used to detect the expression of AQP5 in human GC(More)
Fusarium wilt, caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense (Foc), is a destructive fungal disease of banana. Transferring antifungal genes into banana provides a feasible way to control fungal disease, but transformation frequencies for banana are often cultivar and cell line dependent. We investigated an efficient liquid medium selection protocol for an(More)
The FOXO6 correlated with tumor progression in a wide range of carcinomas, yet little is known in gastric cancer. The expression of FOXO6 and matrix metallopeptidase 9 (MMP-9) was assessed by immunohistochemistry in 192 gastric carcinoma specimens. The correlation between FOXO6 expression with MMP-9, clinicopathological/prognostic value in gastric cancer(More)
AIM To investigate the expression of Th22 cells and related cytokines in colorectal cancer (CRC) tissues, and the probably mechanism. METHODS CRC tumor and paratumor tissues were collected to detect the expression levels of Th22 cells and of related cytokines by immunohistochemistry, flow cytometry and real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction(More)
Lipoxins (LXs) display unique pro-resolving and anti-inflammatory functions in a variety of inflammatory conditions. The present study was undertaken to investigate the effects of BML-111 (5(S),6(R),7-trihydroxyheptanoic acid methyl ester), the agonist of lipoxin A₄ receptor, in a model of Lipopolysaccharides (LPS) and d-Galactosamine (d-GalN) induced acute(More)
Inflammation plays an important role in the occurrence and development of fibrosis. Lipoxins (LXs) and BML-111 (lipoxin A4 agonist) have been approved for potent anti-inflammatory properties. Previously, we and others had showed LXs and BML-111 could protect acute hepatic injury, inhibit the growth and invasion of hepatic tumor. However, there are few(More)
OBJECTIVE To reveal the relationship between iodine nutrition and the change of spectrum on thyroid diseases through comparing the different iodine environments pre- and post- the universal salt iodization(USI)campaign. METHODS To compare the urinary iodine concentration between 1000 normal people and 5998 patients with thyroid disease who had undergone(More)
Lipoxins (LXs), including lipoxin A4 (LXA4), etc., have been approved for potent anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties. Based on the important roles of macrophages in inflammation and immunomodulation, we investigate the effects of LXA4 on lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced proliferation and the possible signal transduction pathways in RAW264.7(More)
