Caenorhabditis elegans is a useful model to study the neuronal or molecular basis for behavioral choice, a specific form of decision-making. Although it has been implied that both D1-like and D2-like dopamine receptors may contribute to the control of decision-making in mammals, the genetic interactions between D1-like and D2-like dopamine receptors in(More)
BACKGROUND Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) contains multiple growth hormones that may stimulate tissue repair. This study aimed to assess the effects of PRP in a rabbit model of IDD (annulus fibrosus puncture). MATERIAL/METHODS Thirty-six adult New Zealand white rabbits were randomly divided into 3 groups: 0.1 mL PRP (group A), 0.1 mL phosphate-buffered saline(More)
Preference choice on food is an important response strategy for animals living in the environment. Using assay system of preference choice on bacterial foods, OP50 and PA14, we identified the involvement of ADL sensory neurons in the control of preference choice in Caenorhabditis elegans. Both genetically silencing and ChR2-mediated activation of ADL(More)
Although it has been known that basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) is involved in tumor progression, few studies addressed the role of bFGF in hematopoietic system malignancies including chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). An elevated level of bFGF was recently found in CML patients, and bFGF was considered to play an important role in stimulating the growth(More)
Gastric cancer is the second cause of the common cancer deaths worldwide. Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) was up-regulated in patients with gastric cancer and was regarded as a potential therapeutic target. We have previously obtained a high-affinity bFGF-binding peptide (named P7) from the phage display random heptapeptide library. In this study, we(More)
Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is a leading cause of cancer-related mortality worldwide. Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) is up-regulated in NSCLC patients and plays an important role in tumor growth. In this paper, we attempt to evaluate the therapeutic potential of bFGF binding peptide (named as P7) using as a potent bFGF antagonist via(More)
Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is a leading cause of cancer-related mortality worldwide. Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) is up-regulated in NSCLC patients and plays an important role in tumor growth and angiogenesis. Therefore, it is regarded as a potential therapeutic target of NSCLC. We have previously obtained a high-affinity bFGF antagonist(More)
Power distribution room is the key position of the power supply system, it is very important to monitor power distribution room and real time warning in order to ensure the normal power supply. A design of a detection system based on Zig Bee wireless sensor network, the hardware based on CC2530, software development based on Zig Bee. Designing a novel(More)
The microRNA (miRNA) let-7 is an important miRNA identified in Caenorhabditis elegans and has been shown to be involved in the control of innate immunity. The underlying molecular mechanisms for let-7 regulation of innate immunity remain largely unclear. In this study, we investigated the molecular basis for intestinal let-7 in the regulation of innate(More)
