BACKGROUND/AIMS The aim of this study was to investigate the role of microRNA miR-761 in the progression and metastasis of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), and the mechanisms by which miR-761 regulates cell proliferation and metastatic activity of NSCLC cell lines. METHODS Quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR) was used to assess miR-761 expression in(More)
Let k be a positive integer. A graph G is said to be k-pairable if its automorphism group contains an involution φ such that d(x, φ(x)) ≥ k for any vertex x of G. The pair length of a graph G, denoted as p(G), is the maximum k such that G is k-pairable; p(G) = 0 if G is not k-pairable for any positive integer k. Some new results have been obtained since(More)
OBJECTIVE In this study, we examined the relationships between the expression level of CHI3L1 and the clinicopathological characteristics of papillary thyroid carcinoma. METHODS A total of 322 tissue samples from patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma were collected, and the CHI3L1 expression levels in tumor tissues, matched adjacent noncancerous(More)
The k-pairable graphs, introduced by Chen in 2004, constitute a wide class of graphs with a new type of symmetry, which includes many graphs of theoretical and practical importance, such as hypercubes, Hamming graphs of even order, antipodal graphs (also called diametrical graphs, or symmetrically even graphs), S-graphs, etc. Let k be a positive integer. A(More)
Oxidized low-density lipoprotein (ox-LDL) is a major and critical mediator of atherosclerosis, and the underlying mechanism is thought to involve the ox-LDL-induced dysfunction of endothelial cells (ECs). MicroRNAs (miRNAs), which are a group of small non-coding RNA molecules that post-transcriptionally regulate the expression of target genes, have been(More)
The idea of integral sum graphs was introduced by Harary (1994). A graph G is said to be an integral sum graph if its nodes can be given a labeling f with distinct integers, so that for any two distinct nodes u and v of G, uv is an edge of G if and only if f (u) + f(v) = f (w) for some node w in G. A tree is said to be a generalized star if it can be(More)
OBJECTIVE Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is a neurodegenerative and inflammatory demyelination disorder, and oxidative stress is concerned with the pathogenesis of the disease. Also, we found that thyroid hormone level is correlated to the oxidative and antioxidant status in previous studies. Our study was aimed to find the possible relationship between the(More)
BACKGROUND Azathioprine is widely used for neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) patients, while a consensus of timing to receive azathioprine has not been proposed. OBJECTIVE The objective of this paper was to evaluate the efficacy of early access of azathioprine in NMOSD patients. METHODS We conducted a retrospective review of NMOSD patients(More)
This study is to investigate the therapeutic effects of human adipose tissue-derived stem cell (hADSC) transplantation on experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) in mice. EAE mouse model was established by MOG35-55 immunization. Body weight and neurological function were assessed. H&E and LFB staining was performed to evaluate histopathological(More)
Acute transverse myelitis (ATM) is a progressive and autoimmune disease with inflammatory cell infiltrates into the spinal cord, and thyroid hormone (TH) level is associated with the oxidative and antioxidant status. Variations in oxidative stress and antioxidant levels are related to the pathogenesis of autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. Our study aimed(More)
