Endostar, a novel recombinant human endostatin expressed and purified in Escherichia coli with an additional nine-amino acid sequence and forming another his-tag structure, was approved by the SFDA in 2005 for the treatment of non-small-cell lung cancer. But its mechanism of action has not been illustrated before. In this study, we examined the(More)
Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is the most common acute leukemia in adults. The disease is characterized by various cytogenetic and molecular abnormalities with distinct prognoses and gene expression profiles. Emerging evidence has suggested that circulating microRNAs (miRNAs) could serve as noninvasive biomarkers for cancer detection; however, little is(More)
Baicalein is a widely used Chinese herbal medicine that has been used historically in anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer therapy. However, the molecular mechanism of its anti-cancer activity remains poorly understood and warrants further investigations. The purpose of this study is to verify the activity of baicalein to inhibit the invasion of MDA-MB-231(More)
Chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis (CMC) is characterized by recurrent or persistent infections of the skin, nail, oral, and genital mucosae with Candida species, mainly C. albicans. Autosomal-recessive (AR) IL-17RA and ACT1 deficiencies and autosomal-dominant IL-17F deficiency, each reported in a single kindred, underlie CMC in otherwise healthy patients.(More)
This study was designed to characterize breast cancer resistance protein (Bcrp) knockout Abcg2(-/-) rats and assess the effect of ATP-binding cassette subfamily G member 2 (Abcg2) deletion on the excretion and pharmacokinetic properties of probe substrates. Deletion of the target gene in the Abcg2(-/-) rats was confirmed, whereas gene expression was(More)
Gaussian low-pass filtering is a common post-process operation which is exploited to blur and conceal these discontinuities at the border of tampered objects introduced by copy & paste operation, making the tampered image more realistic. In this paper, a novel approach for detecting Gaussian low-pass filtering in digital images is proposed based on the(More)
Immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is an autoimmune disorder, and high-dose dexamethasome (HD-DXM) has been used as a first-line therapy for patients with ITP. However, little is known about the role of dendritic cells (DCs) and CD4(+)Foxp3(+) regulatory T (Treg) cells in the pathogenesis of chronic ITP and the effects of HD-DXM on DCs and Treg cells. In(More)
NAT10 (N-acetyltransferase 10) is a protein with histone acetylation activity and primarily identified to be involved in regulation of telomerase activity. The presented research shows its transcriptional activation by genotoxic agents and possible role in DNA damage. NAT10 mRNA could be markedly increased by using hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) or cisplatin in a(More)
Endostar, a novel recombinant human endostatin expressed and purified in Escherichia coli with an additional nine-amino acid sequence forming another his-tag structure, was approved by the State Food and Drug Administration of China (SFDA) in 2005 for the treatment of non-small-cell lung cancer. However, the molecular mechanism of its potent anticancer(More)
Girdin is highly expressed in breast carcinomas. Suppression of Girdin inhibited breast cancer cell migration. However, the clinical implications of Girdin as a marker are still unclear. Here we examined 80 breast cancer specimens using immunohistochemistry. Overall, positive Girdin staining was 41.25% in all of the cases. Girdin was strongly expressed in(More)
