Aldo-keto reductase family 1 B10 (AKR1B10), a member of aldo-keto reductase superfamily, is overexpressed in human hepatocellular carcinoma, lung squamous cell carcinoma and lung adenocarcinoma. Our previous study had demonstrated that the ectopic expression of AKR1B10 in 293T cells promotes cell proliferation. To evaluate its potential as a target for(More)
Aldo-keto reductase family 1 member B10 (AKR1B10) is overexpressed in human hepatocellular carcinoma, lung squamous carcinoma, and lung adenocarcinoma in smokers. Our recent studies have showed that AKR1B10 plays a critical role in the growth and proliferation of cancer cells by detoxifying reactive carbonyls and regulating fatty acid biosynthesis. However,(More)
BACKGROUND Central lymph node metastasis of papillary thyroid microcarcinoma (PTMC) is common; however, prophylactic central lymph node dissection (CLND) is still controversial because of the possible increased morbidity. The purpose of this study is to determine the clinical outcome of patients with cN0 PTMC by central neck dissection. METHODS A(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the clinical feature and treatment strategy of primary pancreatic lymphoma. METHODS Thirty-nine cases of primary pancreatic lymphoma reported in China were reviewed retrospectively with their clinical characters, treatment, and outcome, as well as a literature review of worldwide reports. RESULTS The major clinical presentations(More)
AKR1B10 (aldo-keto reductase 1B10) is overexpressed in liver and lung cancer, and plays a critical role in tumour development and progression through promoting lipogenesis and eliminating cytotoxic carbonyls. AKR1B10 is a secretory protein and potential tumour marker; however, little is known about the regulatory mechanism of AKR1B10 expression. The present(More)
Alpha, beta-unsaturated carbonyls are highly reactive mutagens and carcinogens to which humans are exposed on a daily basis. This study demonstrates that aldo-keto reductase family 1 member B10 (AKR1B10) is a critical protein in detoxifying dietary and lipid-derived unsaturated carbonyls. Purified AKR1B10 recombinant protein efficiently catalyzed the(More)
To further unravel the organic fouling behavior of polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) ultrafiltration (UF) membranes, the adhesion forces of membrane-foulant and foulant-foulant were investigated by atomic force microscopy (AFM) in conjunction with self-made PVDF colloidal probe and foulant-coated colloidal probe, respectively. Fouling experiments with bovine(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the safety and effectiveness of open preperitoneal herniorraphy comparing with traditional Lichtenstein tension-free herniorraphy on the surgical treatment of inguinal hernia. METHODS The clinical data of 249 patients with inguinal hernia admitted from October 2008 to December 2013 were reviewed retrospectively.Eighty-three patients(More)
Placing a physical barrier between the injured site and the adjacent tissues is a very common and highly effective approach to prevent abdominal adhesions in these days. A biodegradable trilayered barrier was fabricated to prevent formation of abdominal adhesions, in which a poly(lactide-co-glycolide)/poly(lactide)-b-poly(ethylene glycol) (PLGA/PLA-b-PEG)(More)
The interaction forces between effluent organic matter (EfOM) fractions and membrane were measured by atomic force microscopy in conjunction with self-made membrane material colloidal probes. The inter-EfOM-fraction and intra-EfOM-fraction interactions were investigated using corresponding EfOM-fraction-coated colloidal probe. We combined this analysis with(More)
