Celsr3 and Fzd3, members of "core planar cell polarity" (PCP) genes, were shown previously to control forebrain axon guidance and wiring by acting in axons and/or guidepost cells. Here, we show that Celsr2 acts redundantly with Celsr3, and that their combined mutation mimics that of Fzd3. The phenotypes generated upon inactivation of Fzd3 in different(More)
Little is known about the role of progranulin (PGRN) in cervical cancer, which is an autocrine growth factor. We used immunohistochemistry, western blot, and ELISA to determine the expression levels of PGRN in cervical cancer and cervical cancer cell lines. Immortalized normal cervical cell line H8 with lower PGRN expression was treated with recombinant(More)
Celsr3 and Fzd3 regulate the development of reciprocal thalamocortical projections independently of their expression in cortical or thalamic neurons. To understand this cell non autonomous mechanism further, we tested whether Celsr3 and Fzd3 could act via Isl1-positive guidepost cells. Isl1-positive cells appear in the forebrain at embryonic day (E)(More)
Primary central nervous system (CNS) extranodal NK/T-cell lymphoma, nasal type (NKTCL), is an extremely rare tumor. To the best of our knowledge, only four cases have been described previously. Here, we report a case of primary CNS NKTCL in a 25-year-old immunocompetent Chinese male. The patient presented with worsening dizziness, headaches, and vomiting(More)
HCV infection affects more than 170 million people worldwide and many of those patients will reach the end stage complications of the disease which include hepatocarcinoma and liver failure. The success rate for treatment of patients infected with genotype-1 is about 40%. Therefore, novel treatments are needed to combat the infection. The HCV NS3 protease(More)
With the IT development, computer is more powerful and can accommodate more virtual servers than ever. Due to users' random requests, it is not economical to start all virtual servers beforehand. One reasonable approach is to start virtual servers dynamically. It will lead to varied performance in server consolidation. Thus, one of the key problems is how(More)
