Previous reports have implicated epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) as a major cause of cancer. Snail, a novel zinc finger transcription factor, was suggested to be an important inducer of EMT and therefore be involved in different phases of tumorigenicity. However, whether Snail could increase chemoresistance of cancer cells to chemotherapeutic agent(More)
BACKGROUND Previously, TP53 codon 72 polymorphisms have been implicated as risk factors for various cancers. A number of studies have conducted on the association of TP53 codon 72 polymorphisms with susceptibility to breast carcinoma and have yielded inconclusive results. The aim of the present study was to derive a more precise estimation of the(More)
In this study, we investigated the utility of antimicrobial blue light therapy for multidrug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii infection in a mouse burn model. A bioluminescent clinical isolate of multidrug-resistant A. baumannii was obtained. The susceptibility of A. baumannii to blue light (415 nm)-inactivation was compared in vitro to that of human(More)
Liposuction aspirates separate into fatty and fluid portions. Cells isolated from the fatty portion are termed processed lipoaspirate (PLA) cells and isolated from the fluid portion termed liposuction aspirate fluid (LAF) cells, both of which contain adipose-derived stromal cells (ASCs). Here, we examined the biological differences between PLA and LAF cells(More)
In the last two decades, the accumulation of heavy metal in crop grains has become the study hotspot. In this study, 19 representative elite maize inbred lines and 3 hybrid varieties were investigated at the seedling stage, which can accumulate Pb and Cd in the stems and leaves, respectively. The results demonstrated that significant differences are among(More)
According to its physical and chemical properties, the composition of difenoconazole/propiconazole microemulsion was as follows: xylene as solvent, emulsifier HSH as surfactant and methanol as cosurfactant. The optimal formulation of difenoconazole/propiconazole microemulsion was oil/SAA/water = 1/2/5 (w/w), in which the SAA consisted of emulsifier HSH and(More)
A simple and novel approach for the preparation of a Pt/reduced graphene oxide nanoscroll (Pt/RGOS) nanocatalyst is reported for the first time. The Pt/reduced graphene oxide (Pt/RGO) was fabricated by the co-reduction of GO and Pt salt using ethylene glycol under microwave irradiation, then the Pt/RGOSs were obtained by oxygen implosion in situ rolling up(More)
A sensitive electrochemical sensor for nitrobenzene (NB) detection has been developed based on macro-/meso-porous carbon materials (MMPCMs). MMPCMs were prepared by pyrolysis of the ionic-liquid ([AEIm]BF(4)) polymer (PIL) pre-wrapped onto SiO(2) microspheres and then removal of the silica core. The morphology and structure of MMPCMs were characterized by(More)
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) were non-covalently functionalized by 1-pyrenecarboxaldehyde (PCA) via π-π stacking interactions. PCA not only acts as the reductant for the deposition of PtRu nanoparticles, but the oxidation product of PCA can also effectively anchor and stabilize the in-situ-produced PtRu NPs on the surface of CNTs. Transmission electron(More)
Baker's yeast biomass was pretreated by ethanol and caustic soda, and then the pristine baker's yeast, ethanol pretreated baker's yeast (ethanol-baker's yeast) and caustic soda pretreated baker's yeast (caustic-baker's yeast) were utilized as biosorbents to adsorb Cu(2+) in aqueous solution. The influence of different parameters on Cu(2+) uptake by the(More)
