OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to perform a comprehensive analysis of the microRNA expression profile in placentas from preeclamptic pregnancies vs normal placentas. STUDY DESIGN Placentas were obtained from patients with (1) mild preeclampsia (n = 8) and (2) severe preeclampsia (n = 15) and (3) in a normal control group (n = 11) with elective(More)
Expression profile of microRNA (miRNA) in mouse oocytes and preimplantation embryos has been revealed by a novel high throughput microarray assay. A total of 97 (43 "new" and 54 known) including mouse, human, and predicted miRNAs have been discovered in the preimplantation mouse embryos which can be classified into developmental stage-dependent groups and(More)
Fertilization and development of mouse embryos occur in the ampullae of oviduct. We hypothesize that fetal-maternal communication exists in the preimplantation period, allowing optimal development of embryos. It is known that embryotrophic factors from oviduct affect the development of embryos. Although embryos affect their own transport in the oviduct, the(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to gain a further understanding of the relationship between miR-152 and human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-G in human trophoblast cell line (JEG-3). STUDY DESIGN The JEG-3 cells were transfected with pre-miR-152. The effect of the overexpressed miR-152 on HLA-G expression, trophoblast invasion, and natural killer (NK)(More)
Reprogramming human somatic cells to pluripotency represents a valuable resource for research aiming at the development of in vitro models for human diseases and regenerative medicines to produce patient-specific induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells. Seeking appropriate cell resources for higher efficiency and reducing the risk of viral transgene(More)
Hepatitis B X-interacting protein (HBXIP) is a novel oncoprotein. In this study, we found that the expression levels of HBXIP were positively associated with those of S-phase kinase-associated protein 2 (Skp2) in clinical breast cancer tissues and cell lines. Moreover, we found that HBXIP was able to stimulate the promoter of Skp2 through binding to the(More)
The purpose of this meta-analysis was to assess whether statins could reduce the morbidity of acute lung injury and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ALI/ARDS) in high-risk patients and improve the clinical outcomes of patients with ALI/ARDS. Studies were obtained from PubMed, Medline, Embase and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials. Randomized(More)
This analysis was performed to determine whether the presence of soluble human leukocyte antigen-G (sHLA-G) in embryo culture medium is predictive of clinical outcomes in IVF treatment. The outcomes of implantation, clinical pregnancy, multiple pregnancy and miscarriage, between groups with and without sHLA-G in embryo culture media, were analysed. Fifteen(More)
Our study was approved by the Medical Ethics Committee of Tang Du Hospital, Fourth Military Medical University and complied strictly with national ethical guidelines. Preeclampsia (PE) is a specific clinical disorder characterized by gestational hypertension and proteinuria and is a leading cause of maternal and perinatal mortality worldwide. The(More)
Preeclampsia is a major cause of maternal and fetal mortality and morbidity worldwide. The differential expression of several microRNAs (miRNAs) has been found in preeclamptic placentas. However, great conflict exists regarding this aspect, and detailed examinations have largely been lacking of miRNA profiles in different parts of the placenta and in(More)
