The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of HIF1α on Foxp3 expression in CD4(+) CD25(-) T lymphocytes. CD4(+) CD25(-) T lymphocytes were sorted from PBMC using a CD4(+) CD25(+) regulatory T cell isolation kit. Lentivirus containing lentiviral vector that overexpressed HIF1α (HIF-lenti) and those containing empty expression vector(More)
Tyroserleutide (YSL) is an active, low-molecular-weight polypeptide with in vitro and in vivo anticancer effects on human hepatocellular carcinoma BEL-7402 cells. In this study, we studied the effects of YSL on PI3K/AKT in the BEL-7402 cells to explore its anti-tumor mechanism. Results showed that YSL could up-regulate the mRNA and protein expression of(More)
Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) plays a pivotal role in the development of cancer. Has-miR-200b-3p is generally recognized as one of the fundamental regulators of EMT. In this study, we found that the expression of miR-200b-3p was downregulated in glioma tissues and human glioma cells U87 and U251. Meanwhile, Up-regulating miR-200b-3p enhanced(More)
c2D transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs)-based heterostructures have been demonstrated to achieve superior light absorption and photovoltaic effects theoretically and experimentally, making them extremely attractive for realizing optoelectronic devices. In this work, a vertical multilayered n-MoS2/n-silicon homotype heterojunction is fabricated, which(More)
Nonvolatile resistive switching has been observed for the first time in CdSe nanowire (NW)/Au Schottky barrier diodes, where a Schottky contact electrode and an Ohmic contact electrode were formed at the Au/CdSe NW and CdSe NW/In interfaces, respectively. The CdSe NWs Schottky devices were found to possess multibit storage ability in an individual nanowire,(More)
Peptide deformylase (PDF) is considered an attractive target for screening novel antibiotics. The PDF from Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus are representative of the gram-negative species type of PDF (type I PDF) and the gram-positive species type of PDF (type II PDF), respectively. They could be used for screening broad-spectrum antibiotics.(More)
A novel type of aqueous fluorescent carbon dot (CD) was synthesized using citric acid as the only carbon source via an ammonium hydroxide modulated method, providing a blue color gamut. The amino group is considered to be the key factor in the high fluorescence of CDs and a model is established to investigate the mechanism of fluorescence. In addition,(More)
Tetragonal CsPb2Br5 nanosheets were obtained by an oriented attachment of orthorhombic CsPbBr3 nanocubes, involving a lateral shape evolution from octagonal to square. Meanwhile, the experimental results, together with DFT simulation results, indicated that the tetragonal CsPb2Br5 is an indirect bandgap semiconductor that is PL-inactive with a bandgap of(More)
Tyroserleutide (YSL) is a tripeptide compound that has exhibited inhibitory effects on hepatocellular carcinoma in our previous research. The mechanism of this antitumor activity involves the second messenger, Ca(2+). Ca(2+) influences cell function through the Ca(2+)/calmodulin (CaM) pathway, and abnormality of the Ca(2+)/CaM system correlates closely with(More)
An attempt has been made to reveal the effect of amphoteric poly(2-acryloyloxyethyl trimethyl ammonium chloride-co-acrylic acid) [P(ATAC-co-AA)] branches grafted onto the backbones of starch upon the adhesion-to-cotton, film properties, and desizability of maize starch for cotton warp sizing. Starch-g-poly[(2-acryloyloxyethyl trimethyl ammonium(More)
