Glioma is among the ten most common causes of cancer-related death and has no effective treatment for it, so we are trying to find a new target for anticancer treatment. This study investigates the different expression of SRPK1 as a novel protein in glioma, which can influence tumor cells biological characteristics in normoxic and hypoxic environment. The(More)
Spinal cord injury (SCI) refers to the damage of spinal cord's structure and function due to a variety of causes. At present, many scholars have confirmed that apoptosis is the main method of secondary injury in spinal cord injury. In view of understanding the function of PI3K/Akt pathway on spinal cord injury, this study observed the temporal variation of(More)
Infectious bronchitis virus (IBV) is a major pathogen common in the poultry industry. Broad cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) response against IBV is one of the crucial factors that help to control viral replication. Spike glycoproteins on the surface of the IBV virion harbor major T cell epitopes. In this study, based on the peptide-binding motifs of chicken(More)
Hypertension in ESRD patients is common, and often refractory to common medical interventions. Bilateral renal embolization (BRE) is an alternative to nephrectomy in treating severe refractory hypertension in hemodialysis patients, but has drawbacks in residual renal function preservation and post-infarction syndrome. We evaluated the efficacy and safety of(More)
To integrate tissue engineering concepts into strategies to repair spinal cord injury (SCI) has been a hotspot in recent years, and the choice of scaffolding material is crucial to tissue engineering. Recently, decellularized nerve scaffold becomes a central concern due to its peculiar superiority. In this study, the decellularized nerve scaffold was(More)
AIMS To introduce our preliminary experience in using multislice computed tomographic (CT) angiography (MSCTA) to assess stenoses of the hemodialysis vascular access and to guide revising operation or percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA). METHODS Contrast-enhanced 16-slice spiral CT was used to examine 22 hemodialysis patients with various(More)
Oncolytic Newcastle disease virus (NDV) reportedly employs direct fusion of the viral envelope with the plasma membrane and caveolae-dependent endocytosis to enter cells. Here, we show that macropinocytosis and clathrin-mediated endocytosis are involved in NDV entry into a galline embryonic fibroblast cell line. Upon specific inhibition of clathrin(More)
Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae, an economically important bacterium, causes a serious disease in rice production worldwide called bacterial leaf blight. How X. oryzae pv. oryzae infects rice and causes symptoms remains incompletely understood. Our earlier works demonstrated that the twin-arginine translocation (Tat) pathway plays an vital role in X. oryzae(More)
Dysregulation of microRNAs (miRNAs) is actively involved in the development and progression of glioma. miR-520c was previously found to inhibit glioblastoma cell migration. However, the clinical significance of miR-520c and its biological function in glioma remain largely unknown. In the present study, we found that miR-520c expression in glioma tissues was(More)
Infectious bronchitis virus (IBV) causes major losses in the poultry industry. The safe and effective vaccine to control IBV spread is imperative. In the present study, we developed IBV S1 glycoprotein poly-epitope-based DNA vaccine pV-S1B+S1T consisting of SH1208 and Holte strain BF2-restricted T cell epitopes and Australian T strain dominant B cell(More)
