BACKGROUND HLA-G is a non-classical HLA with important immunomodulatory roles in pregnancy. A polymorphism in the promoter region, -725G, was previously associated with sporadic miscarriage in women who were unselected with respect to reproductive history. In this study, the transcription levels of different HLA-G promoter haplotypes were examined to(More)
MiR-195 has been implicated in inhibiting cell proliferation in different types of tumors. Whether it contributes to the process of thymic epithelial cells (TECs) proliferation remains unclear. In this study, we found that miR-195a-5p was highly up-regulated in the TECs isolated from the aging mice. Further experiments showed that miR-195a-5p mimic(More)
Lipocalin-2 (LCN2) was known to play various roles in different type cells; however, little was known about the effect of LCN2 in male fertility. In this study, we aimed to explore the expression pattern of LCN2 with increasing age in mice, and to obtain insight into the role of LCN2 in mice testes by induced cryptorchidism and busulfan-treated infertility.(More)
