Most CMPs use on-chip networks to connect cores and tend to integrate more simple cores on a single die. Low-radix networks, such as 2D-MESH, are widely used in tiled CMPs since they can be mapped to on-chip networks efficiently. However, low-radix networks introduce high network latency caused by long diameter. In this paper, we propose the use of(More)
p62 is a multidomain protein that contains different kinds of protein-protein interaction domains, including an N-terminal PB1 domain, a ZZ-type zinc finger domain, a nuclear localization signal (NLS), an export motif (NES), the LC3-interacting region (LIR), the KEAP1-interacting region (KIR), and a C-terminal Ub-associated domain (UBA). p62 is involved in(More)
Oxidized lipoprotein(a) (oxLp(a)) is a more potent marker of atherogenesis than native Lp(a). However, the molecular mechanisms of oxLp(a) activity are not clear. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) have recently been suggested as acting as intracellular second messengers. In this study, the effects of oxLp(a) on endothelial cell monolayer permeability and the(More)
The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effect of pravastatin on cholesteryl esters in foam cells of murine macrophages and the relation with caveolin-1. RAW 264.7 murine macrophages were coincubated with 80 mg/L oxidized low density lipoprotein (ox-LDL) and pravastatin (0~100 mumol/L) respectively for 24 h. When the best control(More)
It has been reported that oxidized low-density lipoprotein (Ox-LDL) can increase the expression of adipophilin. However, the detailed mechanisms are not fully understood. The aim of this study was to investigate the mechanism of Ox-LDL on adipophilin expression and the intracellular lipid droplet accumulation. A mouse macrophage-like cell line, RAW264.7,(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the attenuation of endothelial cell senescence by H2S and to explore the mechanisms underlying the anti-aging effects of H2S. Senescence was induced in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) by incubation in 25 µmol/l H2O2 for 1 h. Senescence-associated β-galactosidase (SA-β-gal) activity was examined(More)
Recent evidence indicates that hydrogen sulfide (H(2)S) exerts an antiatherogenic effect, but the mechanism is unclear. Formation of macrophage-derived foam cells is a crucial event in the development of atherosclerosis. Thus, we explore the effect of H(2)S on the formation of macrophage-derived foam cells. Incubation of monocyte-derived macrophages with(More)
Expression of astrocyte-elevated gene-1, a novel oncoprotein, is elevated in multiple cancers and plays a vital role in tumor cell growth, invasion, angiogenesis, and progression to metastasis. However, the functional significance of astrocyte-elevated gene-1 in non-small cell lung cancer still remains unclear. Our present study showed that the markedly(More)
AIM To study the effect of oxidized low density lipoprotein (ox-LDL) on ATP binding cassette transporter A1 (ABCA1) in THP-1 macrophages. METHODS After exposing the cultured THP-1 macrophages to ox-LDL for different periods, cholesterol efflux was determined by FJ-2107P type liquid scintillator. ABCA1 mRNA and protein level were determined by reverse(More)
Oxidised lipoprotein(a) [oxLp(a)] is considered as a more potent arteriosclerotic factor than native Lp(a). However, the molecular mechanisms underlying this potency remain unclear. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) possibly act as intracellular second messengers that participate in autophagy stimulation. In this study, the effect of oxLp(a) on endothelial cell(More)
