Semaphorin 7A as a potential immune regulator and promising therapeutic target in rheumatoid arthritis

Background Semaphorin 7A (Sema7A) is expressed by several different classes of lymphoid and myeloid cells and is a potent immunomodulator. We examined the role of Sema7A in modulating cellular immune responses and to provide experimental data validating the therapeutic potential of Sema7A in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Methods Soluble Sema7A (sSema7A) levels in the serum and ...

The value of [11C]-acetate PET and [18F]-FDG PET in hepatocellular carcinoma before and after treatment with transarterial chemoembolization and bevacizumab

Purpose This prospective study was to investigate the value of [11C]-acetate PET and [18F]-FDG PET in the evaluation of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) before and after treatment with transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) antibody (bevacizumab). Methods Twenty-two patients (three women, 19 men; 62 ± 8 years) with HCC verified by ...

FSW of aluminum AA5754 to steel DX54 with innovative overlap joint

An innovative overlap joint concept was tested to evaluate the quality improvement of welds between aluminum alloy AA5754-H22 (2 mm) and steel DX54 (1.5 mm). The innovation is a wave-shaped interface produced on the steel being directly processed by the tip of the probe, generating localized heat, extensive chemically active surfaces, and additional mechanical interlocking. Welds ...

Highly active CeO2 hollow-shell spheres with Al doping

Metal oxide hollow structures are of great interest in many current and emerging areas of technology. This paper presents a facile and controlled protocol for the synthesis of Al-doped CeO2 hollow-shell spheres (CHS), where the dopant confers enhanced stability and activity to the material. These Al-doped CeO2 hollow-shell spheres (ACHS) possess a controllable shell number of up to ...

Research Progress in Improving the Cycling Stability of High-Voltage LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 Cathode in Lithium-Ion Battery

High-voltage lithium-ion batteries (HVLIBs) are considered as promising devices of energy storage for electric vehicle, hybrid electric vehicle, and other high-power equipment. HVLIBs require their own platform voltages to be higher than 4.5 V on charge. Lithium nickel manganese spinel LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 (LNMO) cathode is the most promising candidate among the 5 V cathode materials for ...

Mesenchymal stroma cells in peritoneal dialysis effluents from patients

mesenchymal stroma cells - & Hao Wang Mesenchymal stroma cells (MSCs), historically termed as mesenchymal stem cells, are multipotent fibroblast-like, adult stroma cells that were first isolated from the

Comparison of the impact of viral and plant-derived promoters regulating selectable marker gene on maize transformation and transgene expression

Key message The choice of promoter regulating the selectable marker gene impacts transformation efficiency, copy number and the expression of selectable marker and flanking genes in maize. Abstract Viral or plant-derived constitutive promoters are often used to regulate selectable marker genes. We compared two viral promoters, cauliflower mosaic virus (CaMV 35T) and sugarcane ...

Ocean Wave Simulation Based on Wind Field

Ocean wave simulation has a wide range of applications in movies, video games and training systems. Wind force is the main energy resource for generating ocean waves, which are the result of the interaction between wind and the ocean surface. While numerous methods to handle simulating oceans and other fluid phenomena have undergone rapid development during the past years in the ...

Rolling Resistance and Mechanical Properties of Grinded Copper Surfaces Using Molecular Dynamics Simulation

Mechanical properties of copper (Cu) film under grinding process were accomplished by molecular dynamics simulation. A numerical calculation was carried out to understand the distributions of atomic and slip vector inside the Cu films. In this study, the roller rotation velocity, temperature, and roller rotation direction change are investigated to clarify their effect on the ...

Isoform-level ribosome occupancy estimation guided by transcript abundance with Ribomap

Summary: Ribosome profiling is a recently developed high-throughput sequencing technique that captures approximately 30 bp long ribosome-protected mRNA fragments during translation. Because of alternative splicing and repetitive sequences, a ribosome-protected read may map to many places in the transcriptome, leading to discarded or arbitrary mappings when standard approaches are ...

Receiver-assisted cellular/wifi handover management for efficient multipath multimedia delivery in heterogeneous wireless networks

In a heterogeneous wireless environment, mobility particularly vertical handover between WiFi and cellular data service has to be supported. The support for multihoming feature makes Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) become a promising transport layer-based handover scheme for end users. Although the benefits of applying SCTP for multimedia delivery and handover have been ...

Relationship of clusterin with renal inflammation and fibrosis after the recovery phase of ischemia-reperfusion injury

Background Long-term outcomes after acute kidney injury (AKI) include incremental loss of function and progression towards chronic kidney disease (CKD); however, the pathogenesis of AKI to CKD remains largely unknown. Clusterin (CLU) is a chaperone-like protein that reduces ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) and enhances tissue repair after IRI in the kidney. This study investigated ...
