Damage-specific DNA-binding protein 2 (DDB2) was first isolated as a subunit of the UV-DDB heterodimeric complex that is involved in DNA damage recognition in the nucleotide excision repair pathway (NER). DDB2 is required for efficient repair of CPDs in chromatin and is a component of the CRL4 (DDB2) E3 ligase that targets XPC, histones and DDB2 itself for(More)
We aim at determining the changes in the expression of NF-kB signaling pathway in degenerative intervertebral discs. We collected normal and degenerated intervertebral discs tissues. The normal and degenerated cells were cultivated and their histopathology and immunofluoresence studies were used to observe the position of NF-kB p65 in the cell. We also(More)
14-3-3β has been demonstrated to possess the oncogenic potential, and its increased expression has been detected in multiple types of carcinomas. However, majority of previous studies focused on the role of 14-3-3β in tumor cell proliferation and apoptosis, leaving much to be elucidated about its function in tumor cell invasion and metastasis. Hence, the(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study is to investigate IL-1β regulation of a disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin motifs (ADAMTS-4 and ADAMTS-5) expression through nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB) in human nucleus pulposus (NP) cells. METHODS qRT-PCR and Western blot were used to measure ADAMTS expression. Transfections and gene silencing(More)
Desertification is a typical disaster risk event in which human settlements and living environments are destroyed. Desertification Disaster Risk Assessment can control and prevent the occurrence and development of desertification disasters and reduce their adverse influence on human society. This study presents the methodology and procedure for risk(More)
—Partial reconfigurable system is an architecture consisting general purpose processors and FPGAs, in which FPGA can be reconfigured in run-time. Based on the architecture, software tasks and hardware tasks that are executed on processor and FPGA respectively co-exist. In this paper, a real-time fault-tolerant scheduling algorithm is proposed to schedule(More)
Rice is the second largest staple crop in the world and therefore plays an important role in food security. As a thermophilic crop, rice is sensitive to temperature changes. Thus, research on the chilling damage of rice is essential. The Sanjiang Plain is an emerging rice production area and is located at high latitudes in China, the world’s largest(More)
