The urokinase plasminogen activator(uPA) system plays important roles in tumor cell invasion and metastasis. In the present study, we evaluated the effects of ATF-PAI2CD, a hybrid protein of the amino-terminal fragment of urokinase and mutant plasminogen activator inhibitor-2, on 95D cells in vitro and in vivo. Furthermore, our results support a current(More)
A 44-year-old male recipient with traumatic penile defect that occurred 8 mo earlier was matched with a 22-year-old, male, brain-dead donor. Transplantation included anastomosis of urethra corpus spongiosum and corpus cavernosum, and sutures of deep dorsal vein, dorsal artery, dorsal nerve, and superficial dorsal vein. Systemic broad-spectrum antibiotics,(More)
In this work, we study the problem of the safe transportation of hazardous materials, which is an important operational problem and has been studied extensively in the literature. We outline previous work and propose a new model that is a variant of the vehicle routing problem with time windows (VRPTW). The objective is to find a schedule to guarantee the(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the apoptosis of human vascular smooth muscle cells (HVSMCs) transfected with p21 gene and investigate its potential mechanism. METHODS An adenoviral expression vector with full-length cDNA of p21 gene insert (Ad-p21) was constructed and transfected into HVSMC. A mock vector, pAdeno-X-lac Z constructed with the same method, was(More)
