BACKGROUND IL-17-secreting CD8+ T cells (Tc17 subset) have recently been defined as a subpopulation of effector T cells implicated in the pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases. The role of Tc17 and correlation with Th17 cells in the pathophysiology of immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) remain unsettled. DESIGN AND METHODS We studied 47 ITP patients (20(More)
Simultaneous silencing of multiple up-regulated genes is an attractive and viable strategy to treat many incurable diseases including cancer. Herein we used dual gene targeted siRNA (DGT siRNA) conjugate composed of NET-1 and VEGF siRNA sequences in the same backbone could inhibit growth and angiogenesis HCC. DGT siRNA showed a further down regulation on(More)
AIM To determine if TSPAN1 overexpression is associated with clinicopathological and prognostic factors in human colorectal adenocarcinoma. METHODS Total RNA was extracted in 20 human adenocarcinoma tissues for TSPAN1 mRNA assay by RT-PCR. Eighty-eight specimens of human colorectal adenocarcinoma were surgically removed. TSPAN1 protein levels in cancer(More)
Toll-like receptor 3 (TLR3) is a pattern-recognizing receptor that is involved in immune signaling and plays a crucial role in survival by being able to recognize various viral components including double-stranded RNA (dsRNA). TLR3 expression and function in cancer cells are not well understood. In this study, we(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the contribution and mechanism of cell-mediated cytotoxity to the pathogenesis of idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). METHODS (1) Mononuclear cells and platelets were prepared from the peripheral blood of 14 ITP patients and 10 healthy controls. Separately, CD 8(+) T cells and NK cells (CD 3(-)CD 16(+)CD 56(+)) were(More)
Sulfhydryl cotton fiber (SCF) has been widely used as adsorbent for a variety of metal ions since 1971. Thanks to the abundant thiols on SCF, in this study, we reported a universal method for the facile preparation of SCF-based materials using "thiol-ene" click chemistry for the first time. With the proposed method, two types of SCF-based materials,(More)
Myostatin (MSTN) gene has negative influence on the growth of muscle, which belongs to transforming growth factor-β family. Using single-strand conformation polymorphism (SSCP), single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of MSTN gene were detected in yellow catfish. Correlation analysis between MSTN polymorphisms and growth traits was also carried out. Results(More)
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most common types of malignant tumor. Studies have demonstrated that the toll‑like receptor 3 (TLR3)/interferon pathway is inhibitory in cancer cell proliferation, suggesting that the activation of this pathway may have therapeutic potential. In the present study, the inhibitory effects of BM‑06, a(More)
Hybrid rod-rod diblock copolymers, poly(γ-benzyl L-glutamate)-poly(4-cyano-benzoic acid 2-isopropyl-5-methyl-cyclohexyl ester) (PBLG-PPI), with determined chirality are facilely synthesized through sequential copolymerization of γ-benzyl-L-glutamate N-carboxyanhydride (BLG-NCA) and phenyl isocyanide monomers bearing chiral menthyl pendants using a(More)
Global DNA hypomethylation in tumor tissue is a common characteristic in a variety of malignancies such as breast, colon, oral, lung, and blood cancers. A rapid and sensitive method has been developed for the determination of global DNA methylation in cells. Five substances--2'-deoxycytidine (dC), 5-methyl 2'-deoxycytidine (mdC), 2'-deoxyadenosine (dA),(More)
