Increased expression of the oncogenic transcription factor c-Myc causes unregulated cell cycle progression. c-Myc can also cause apoptosis, but it is not known whether the activation and/or repression of c-Myc target genes mediates these diverse functions of c-Myc. Because unchecked cell cycle progression leads to hyperproliferation and tumorigenesis, it is… (More)
—Four radiative transfer equations for Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) bands 11, 12, 13, and 14 are built involving six unknowns (average atmospheric temperature, land surface temperature, and four band emissivities), which is a typical ill-posed problem. The extra equations can be built by using linear or nonlinear… (More)
Ovarian cancer is one of the primary causes of death for women all through the Western world. Baicalin and baicalein are naturally occurring flavonoids that are found in the roots and leaves of some Chinese medicinal plants and are thought to have antioxidant activity and possible anti-angiogenic, anti-cancer, anxiolytic, anti-inflammatory and… (More)
Ovarian cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer death for women throughout the Western world. Kaempferol, a natural flavonoid, has shown promise in the chemoprevention of ovarian cancer. A common concern about using dietary supplements for chemoprevention is their bioavailability. Nanoparticles have shown promise in increasing the bioavailability of… (More)
Nobiletin is a non-toxic dietary flavonoid that possesses anti-cancer properties. Nobiletin has been reported to reduce the risk of prostate cancer, but the mechanism is not well understood. In this study, we investigated the effects of nobiletin in prostate cancer cell lines PC-3 and DU-145. Nobiletin was isolated from a polymethoxy flavonoid mixture using… (More)
The parameterization of heat transfer based on remote sensing data, and the Surface Energy Balance System (SEBS) scheme to retrieve turbulent heat fluxes, already proved to be very appropriate for estimating evapotranspiration (ET) over homogeneous land surfaces. However, the use of such a method over heterogeneous landscapes (e.g., semi-arid regions or… (More)
The Songhua River Pollution Control Project is one of the most significant water-related environmental pollution control schemes in Northeastern China. This paper details the requirements, architecture, and main components of an online river sudden pollution simulation system (RSPSS) for scientific planning and decision making for a complicated natural… (More)
Vision: • CAMPA, a national consortium and world leader for advanced modeling of particle accelerators, coordinates and integrates the development, maintenance, distribution and support of state-‐of-‐ the-‐art accelerator computer codes. It advances accelerator science through advanced computation, in support of the Department of Energy's mission.
