AIM To elucidate the pattern of 5-flucytosine (5-FC)-induced apoptosis and its role in gene therapy of human pancreatic cancer. METHODS The human pancreatic cancer SW1990 cells (CEA-producing) were infected with recombinant adenoviruses (Adex1CEA-prCD or Adex1CEA-prZ). Expression of CD gene protein was examined by western blot. Apoptosis induced by 5-FC(More)
Many diseases and adverse drug reactions exhibit tissue specificity. To better understand the tissue-specific expression characteristics of transcripts in different human tissues, we deeply sequenced RNA samples from 14 different human tissues. After filtering many lowly expressed transcripts, 24,729 protein-coding transcripts and 1,653 noncoding(More)
Classification of remote sensing textures using Gabor ring filter and ordered spectral histogram is investigated. The proposed approach is based on three steps. First, multi-scale Gabor ring filters are designed for feature extraction. Second, marginal distributions, or called histograms, derived from filtered images by Gabor ring filter, would be sorted by(More)
OBJECTIVE We aimed to investigate the safety of combined sedation with propofol plus fentanyl in patients with liver cirrhosis during screening esophagogastroduodenoscopy (SEGD) and a secondary prophylaxis for esophageal varices, endoscopic gastrointestinal ligation (EVL). METHODS A total of 309 patients with liver cirrhosis were enrolled and divided into(More)
Accumulating evidence suggests that noncoding RNAs (ncRNAs) have important regulatory functions. However, lacking of functional annotations for ncRNAs hampered us from carrying out the subsequent functional or predictive research. Here we dissected the expression profiles of 3,458 rat noncoding genes using rat bodymap RNA-sequencing data consisting of 11(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the therapeutic effects and toxicity of HLF (hydroxycamptothecin HCPT/leucovorin LV/fluorouracil 5-Fu) regimen and ELF (etoposide VP-16/LV/5-Fu) regimen in middle-aged and elderly patients with advanced gastric carcinoma. METHODS A group of twenty-five cases were treated with HLF regimen, and the other group of 23 cases were treated(More)
