The Dlc1 (deleted in liver cancer 1) tumour suppressor gene codes for a RhoGTPase activating protein that is found inactivated in many tumour types. Several transcriptional isoforms have been described but the functional significance and tissue distribution of each form is presently poorly understood. Also, differences in the number of isoforms and splice(More)
Trichinella spiralis paramyosin (Ts-Pmy) is a protective antigen that induces partial immunity against T. spiralis infection in mice. To identify protective epitope of Ts-Pmy, a monoclonal antibody (mAb) 7E2 against the recombinant protein was generated, which partially protected against T. spiralis infection following passive transfer. The mAb was used to(More)
Although the task of data record extraction from Web pages has been studied extensively, yet it fails to handle many pages due to their complexity in format or layout. In this paper, we propose a unified method to tackle this task by addressing several key issues in a uniform manner. A new search structure, named as Record Segmentation Tree (RST), is(More)
Our previous studies showed that immunization with recombinant paramyosin from Trichinella spiralis (rTs-Pmy) formulated with Freund's adjuvant significantly reduced larval burden in mice after T. spiralis larval challenge. Since Freund's adjuvant is toxic and not a suitable adjuvant for clinical vaccine trials, we evaluated the ability of the adjuvants(More)
Video-based traffic flow monitoring is a fast emerging field based on the continuous development of computer vision. A survey of the state-of-the-art video processing techniques in traffic flow monitoring is presented in this paper. Firstly, vehicle detection is the first step of video processing and detection methods are classified into background modeling(More)
Trichinella spiralis heat shock protein 70 (Ts-Hsp70) is a protective antigen that induces partial protective immunity against T. spiralis infection in mice. To determine whether dendritic cells are involved in the mechanism responsible for the protection induced by Ts-Hsp70, mouse bone marrow-derived dendritic cells (DCs) were incubated with recombinant(More)
Baseline wander always exists along with ECG signal. It is a kind of noise and may interference the diagnosis of cardio diseases, especially for the automatic diagnosis. Most methods could eliminate baseline wander already, however be difficult to meet the requisition of low distortion. To solve this problem, a morphology algorithm based on 2-D flat(More)
AIM To investigate the protective effects of arctigenin (ATG), a phenylpropanoid dibenzylbutyrolactone lignan from Arctium lappa L (Compositae), against ER stress in vitro and the underlying mechanisms. METHODS A cell-based screening assay for ER stress regulators was established. Cell viability was measured using MTT assay. PCR and Western blotting were(More)
Nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-kappaB) is critically important for tumor cell survival, growth, angiogenesis, and metastasis. One of the key events in the NF-kappaB signaling is the activation of inhibitor of NF-kappaB kinase (IKK) in response to stimuli of various cytokines. We have identified 17-acetoxyjolkinolide B (17-AJB) from a traditional Chinese(More)
A cDNA encoding heat shock protein 70 of Trichinella spiralis (Ts-Hsp70) was identified by immunoscreening the adult T. spiralis cDNA library with rabbit antisera against T. spiralis adult extracts. The open reading frame of Ts-Hsp70 cDNA encoded a 623-amino acid peptide with a predicted molecular weight of 68.7kDa, which shares a high degree of sequence(More)
