In aerobic organisms, protection against oxidative damage involves the combined action of highly specialized antioxidant enzymes, such as copper-zinc superoxide dismutase. In this work, a cDNA clone which encodes a copper-zinc superoxide dismutase gene, named PS-CuZnSOD, has been identified from P. sibiricum Laxm. by the rapid amplification of cDNA ends(More)
In this paper we quantitatively model degree of automation (DofA) in supervisory control as a function of the number and nature of tasks to be performed by the operator and automation. This model uses a task weighting scheme in which weighting factors are obtained from task demand load, task mental load, and task effect on system performance. The(More)
BACKGROUND Although there has been considerable progress made towards understanding the molecular mechanisms of bud dormancy, the roles of protein phosphorylation in the process of dormancy regulation in woody plants remain unclear. RESULTS We used mass spectrometry combined with TiO₂ phosphopeptide-enrichment strategies to investigate the phosphoproteome(More)
PURPOSE S100A4 is a member of the S100 family of calcium-binding proteins. Members of the S100 family have been implicated in a variety of cellular events, including growth, signaling, differentiation, and motility. It has been suggested that S100A4 modulates cell shape and motility by interacting with components of the cytoskeleton. In the present study,(More)
Abscisic acid (ABA) is a plant hormone regulating the essential physiological processes of plants and plant responses to various environmental stresses. Recent studies revealed that the key enzymes involved in ABA biosynthesis were zeaxanthin epoxidase (ZEP), 9-cis-epoxycarotenoid dioxygenases (NCED), short-chain dehydrogenase/reductase (SDR), and(More)
A squamous cell lung cancer patient was treated with pneumonectomy. A recurrent lung cancer (adenocarcinoma) was found 45 months later and successfully biopsied and treated with microwave ablation. After 18 months of follow up, no evidence of tumor recurrence was observed.
OBJECTIVE To retrospectively evaluate the short-term outcomes and safety of computed tomography (CT)-guided percutaneous microwave ablation (MWA) of solitary adrenal metastasis from lung cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS From May 2010 to April 2014, 31 patients with unilateral adrenal metastasis from lung cancer who were treated with CT-guided percutaneous(More)
Increasing emphasis has been put on the influence of desmosome related proteins on progress of colorectal cancer (CRC). Pinin (PNN) is a desmosome-associated molecule that has been reported its overexpression could increase desmoglein 2 (DSG2) and E-cadherin (E-ca) levels. However, it was documented that DSG2 and E-ca had opposite functions in CRC. Thus, we(More)
The non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients that experienced good clinical response to epidermal growth factor receptor-tyrosine kinase inhibitor (EGFR-TKIs) will ultimately develop acquired resistance. This retrospective study was performed to explore the potential survival benefit of microwave ablation (MWA) therapy in epidermal growth factor receptor(More)
Carbon transfer via international trade affects the spatial pattern of global carbon emissions by redistributing emissions related to production of goods and services. It has potential impacts on attribution of the responsibility of various countries for climate change and formulation of carbon-reduction policies. However, the effect of carbon transfer on(More)
