Tissue-specific miRNAs (TS miRNA) specifically expressed in particular tissues play an important role in tissue identity, differentiation and function. However, transcription factor (TF) and TS miRNA regulatory networks across multiple tissues have not been systematically studied. Here, we manually extracted 116 TS miRNAs and systematically investigated the(More)
Acting as a sequence-specific transcription factor, p53 tumor suppressor involves in a variety of biological processes after being activated by cellular stresses such as DNA damage. In recent years, microRNAs (miRNAs) have been confirmed to be regulated by p53 in several cancer types. However, it is still unclear how miRNAs orchestrate their regulation and(More)
Overexpression of FoxM1 was closely related to the proliferation, metastasis, chemo-resistance and poor prognosis of various cancers. FoxM1 was regarded as the Achilles' heel of cancer and a potential target for anti-cancer drug discovery. We previously obtained several high affinity peptides from the phage random library against the DNA binding domain of(More)
Cloud computing is a significant trend with the potential to increase agility and lower costs. However, security risks, immature technology, and other concerns prevent widespread enterprise adoption of external clouds. One major reason is the lack of a systematic engineering process and tool supported by reusable architectural artifacts. Most existing Cloud(More)
As a transcription factor, c-Myc exerts significant influence in cancer development by regulating transcription of a large number of target genes including microRNAs. However, details of regulatory networks composed of Myc, microRNAs, and microRNA target genes are still unclear. Here, at system level, we built a comprehensive Myc-regulated miRNAs(More)
BACKGROUND ACEII transcription factor plays a significant role in regulating the expression of cellulase and hemicellulase encoding genes. Apart from ACEII, transcription factors such as XYR1, CRE1, HAP2/3/5 complex and ACEI function in a coordinated pattern for regulating the gene expression of cellulases and hemicellulases. Studies have demonstrated that(More)
To characterize the transcriptome profile of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) HepG2 cells treated with peptide 9R-P201 for further functional verification and HCC drug development. 1557 mRNAs (1125 upregulated and 432 downregulated) and 881 lncRNAs (640 upregulated and 241 downregulated) with significant differential expression were identified using RNA-seq.(More)
Nerve growth factor (NGF) plays crucial roles in promoting neural growth and survival, and mediating synaptic and morphological plasticity. Several studies investigated the correlation between peripheral NGF levels and major psychiatric disorders, including schizophrenia (SCZ), major depressive disorder (MDD) and bipolar disorder (BPD); however, the(More)
The PKD1L3 gene encodes an ion channel protein that can interact with the PKD2L1 protein to form a candidate sour taste receptor. In the present study, we have analyzed the evolutionary patterns of PKD1L3 genes from 10 mammalian species. The results showed that PKD1L3 genes have evolved under a dominant purifying selection force. However, for some branches(More)
