Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are recently identified regulators in tumorigenesis and tumour progression. BRAF-activated lncRNA (BANCR) is overexpressed in melanoma and has a potential functional role in melanoma cell migration. However, little is known concerning the role of BANCR in the development of colorectal cancer (CRC). The current study examined(More)
Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are novel regulators in cancer biology. BRAF-activated lncRNA (BANCR) is overexpressed in melanoma and has a potential functional role in melanoma cell migration. However, little is known about the role of BANCR in the development of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). In the present study, BANCR expression was examined in six(More)
T cells from an HLA-DR11/DR12 responder were stimulated in mixed lymphocyte culture with cells carrying the DR1 antigen. After priming, T cells proliferated in response to both DR1-positive-stimulating cells and a peptide derived from a polymorphic region of the HLA-DR beta 1*0101 chain presented by responder's antigen-presenting cells (APC). The dominant(More)
—[Background]: Systematic Literature Review (SLR) has become an important software engineering research method but costs tremendous efforts. [Aim]: This paper proposes an approach to leverage on empirically evolved ontology to support automating key SLR activities. [Method]: First, we propose an ontology, SLRONT, built on SLR experiences and best practices(More)
To date, many studies have shown that microRNAs (miRNA) exhibit altered expression levels in various cancers and may play a potential role as diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers of cancers. This meta-analysis was designed to evaluate the exact role of microRNA-31 (miR-31) for survival and discuss the possibility of utilizing miR-31 to predict the prognosis(More)
It has been suggested that self major histocompatibility complex (MHC) peptides bound to self MHC molecules may be involved in the intrathymic induction of self tolerance. We studied the antigenicity of synthetic peptides derived from the first domain of DR beta 1*0101 chain in a DR beta 1*0101 responder. We found that a peptide corresponding to residues(More)
Ultraviolet-induced unscheduled DNA synthesis (i.e. repair synthesis) in human epidermal cells was measured as a function of age. Normal mammary skin specimens were obtained at surgery from 36 female patients, ranging in age from 17 to 77 years. The enzymatically isolated epidermal cells were analyzed for two parameters: (1) the number and percentage of(More)
Retinol-binding protein 4 (RBP4) is closely associated with a variety of abnormal glycolipid metabolism diseases such as insulin resistance, obesity, diabetes mellitus, and metabolic syndrome. Part 1 Twenty-four male C57/B6 mice were randomly divided into a normal control group (group C, n = 8), a gallstone group (group G, n = 8), and a medication group(More)
Cholangiocarcinoma is a malignant tumor originating from biliary epithelial cells. The tumor suppressor gene tropomyosin 1 (TPM1) is downregulated in several human cancer types; however, its expression status in cholangiocarcinoma is still unknown. We elucidated TPM1 expression and its regulation mechanism in(More)
Dear Editor: Endometriosis is defined as the presence of endometrial-like tissue outside the uterine cavity. Of all the cases of endome-triosis, intestinal endometriosis accounting for about 10 %, the rectum and sigmoid colon are the most vulnerable position of the intestinal tract. For doctors, the diagnosis of colorectal endometriosis is difficult ,(More)
