Global expression profiling studies showed that miRNAs are aberrantly expressed in uterine leiomyomas (ULMs) and are involved in ULM pathogenesis. Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are another group of regulatory RNA whose expression and roles in ULMs have not been explored. In this study, we examined the global expressions of lncRNAs and mRNAs in ULMs using(More)
Studies have suggested that facial appearance leads to judgment of a person's character, e.g. wide-faced males are considered aggressive and untrustworthy, large eyes make a person appear honest and non-dominant, and short ears and nose give impressions of warmth and honesty. In this study we investigate whether we make similar judgment with an avatar's(More)
Ovarian cancer is the most lethal gynecological malignancy. Patients usually have poor prognosis because of late diagnosis, relapse, and chemoresistance. It is pressing to seek novel agent for the treatment of ovarian cancer. Neferine is a bisbenzylisoquinoline alkaloid isolated from the embryos of lotus (Nelumbo nucifera). In this study, we investigated(More)
This paper investigates how expressions of emotion affect persuasiveness when the expresser and the recipient have different levels of power. The first study demonstrates that when the recipient overpowers the expresser, emotional expressions reduce persuasion. A second study reveals that power and perceived appro-priateness of emotional expressions(More)
CD47 is an antiphagocytic signal that cancer cells employ to inhibit macrophage-mediated destruction. CD47 is overexpressed in various human malignancies. However, the expression and functional significance of CD47 in high-grade serous ovarian carcinoma (HGSOC) has not been completely understood. In this study, we reported that CD47 was commonly(More)
BACKGROUND Association between exogenous estrogen intake and cholelithiasis risk has been reported in several epidemiological studies, including oral contraceptive (OC) and hormone replacement therapy (HRT), while the results were controversial. This study aimed to perform a comprehensive meta-analysis of this issue. METHODS PUBMED, EMBASE, and Cochrane(More)
Recent work in eye tracking and facial expression analysis has enabled new forms of hands-free user interaction with computer applications. There has been particular emphasis on using these mechanisms individually for drawing and other artwork related applications (e.g. [Shugrina et al. 2006] [Hornof et al. 2004]).In this paper we explore the combination of(More)
Activation of mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) signaling pathway is associated with poor prognosis of epithelial ovarian cancer. The TSC1-TSC2 complex is a critical negative regulator of mTOR signaling. Here, we demonstrated that TSC1 was frequently downregulated in high-grade serous ovarian carcinoma (HGSOC) and low TSC1 expression level is associated(More)
