Activation of alpha1 adrenergic receptors not only stimulates smooth muscle contraction but also modifies gene expression. We wondered if alpha1 adrenergic receptors could activate transcription of genes regulated by the cAMP response element-binding protein (CREB). Using Rat1 cells stably transfected with each of the three cloned human alpha1 adrenergic… (More)
Samarium diiodide promotes intramolecular cascade radical cyclizations of cyanamide radical precursors conveniently to afford polycyclic N-heterocycles in moderate to good yields.
A series of 1-cyano-2-amino-benzimidazole derivatives were synthesized and evaluated for their cytotoxic activities in vitro against three human cancer cell lines (human lung carcinoma cell line: A549, human leukemia cell line: K562, and human prostate cancer cell line: PC-3). Most of these compounds showed potent activities against these tumor cell lines,… (More)
Regional metastasis is an important prognostic factor for patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). Neuromedin U (Nmu) is a secreted neuropeptide, named due to its potent uterine contraction‑inducing activity. The aim of the present study was to analyze the significance of Nmu in the regional metastasis of HNSCC. The characteristics of… (More)

The quality safety traceability of meat food has played important role in governmental law, food industry management strategies, and consumers. Many institution and software companies have developed a lot of traceability system. There is a growing perception to implementation of reusability, multi resource data fusion and information sharing of the… (More)
Over the last decades, the food safety issues become more and more important, such as BSE crisis, genetically modified organism (GMO) illegal spreading and melamine-contamination event. The food industry established a traceability system to reduce the impact of food safety issues, and the system became an effective method of guaranteeing the food safety.… (More)
