BACKGROUND Colorectal cancer is the fourth most common cancer worldwide and the second leading cause of cancer-related death. FOLFOX is the most common regimen used in the first-line chemotherapy in advanced colorectal cancer, but only half of the patients respond to this regimen and we have almost no clue in predicting resistance in such first-line(More)
Biochemical modifications to mRNA, especially N6-methyladenosine (m6A) and 5-methylcytosine (m5C), have been recently shown to be associated with crucial biological functions. Despite the intriguing advancements, little is known so far about the dynamic landscape of RNA methylome across different cell types and how the epitranscriptome is regulated at the(More)
This paper employs the extended BLT equation to analyze the terminal response of lossy microstrip line illuminated by a plane wave. The paper yields the equivalent transmission line model of microstrip line by analyzing its distribution parameters. By treating the electromagnetic field coupling path as “tube” and considering coupled and(More)
To investigate the effect of the small molecule, RepSox, on the expression of developmentally important genes and the pre-implantation development of rhesus monkey–pig interspecies somatic cell nuclear transfer (iSCNT) embryos. Rhesus monkey cells expressing the monomeric red fluorescent protein 1 which have a normal (42) chromosome complement, were used as(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the developmental competence of oocytes parthenogenetically activated by an electric pulse (EP) and treated with anisomycin and to determine whether this method is applicable to somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT). Embryos derived from porcine oocytes parthenogenetically activated by an EP and treatment with 0.01(More)
An organocatalytic arylation of 3-indolylmethanols has been established via chemo- and regiospecific C6-functionalization of 2,3-disubstituted indoles, leading to the production of bisindolyloxindoles containing an all-carbon quaternary stereocenter in high yields (up to 99% yield). This reaction not only represents the first catalytic arylation of(More)
An enantioselective [4 + 2] cycloaddition of o-hydroxylstyrenes with azlactones has been established by merging chiral Brønsted acid (chiral phosphoric acid) and base (chiral guanidine) catalysis, which constructed a biologically important dihydrocoumarin scaffold in an efficient and enantioselective style (up to 99% yield, 96:4 er). This approach has not(More)
for thermal design and assembly reason, there inevitably exist thermal aperture arrays and slots on computer enclosure, so electromagnetic pulse will get into enclosure through these apertures, which is called “back-door coupling”. This paper simulates and computes the computer enclosure's apertures coupling effects caused by electromagnetic(More)
To examine the effect of PCI-24781 (abexinostat) on the blastocyst formation rate in pig somatic cell nuclear transferred (SCNT) embryos and acetylation levels of the histone H3 lysine 9 and histone H4 lysine 12. Treatment with 0.5 nM PCI-24781 for 6 h significantly improved the development of cloned embryos, in comparison to the control group (25.3 vs.(More)
