Size Control and Growth Process Study of Au@Cu2O Particles

Au@Cu2O cuboctahedron with gold triangular nanoplate core and Cu2O shell was synthesized by a chemical method. X-ray diffraction (XRD) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) tests demonstrated that the as-synthesis samples were consisted of gold triangular nanoplate core and Cu2O shell, and both of them were in good crystallization. The effective size control of the particles ...

Role of keratin 24 in human epidermal keratinocytes

Keratin 24 (K24) is a new kind of keratin genes, which encodes a novel keratin protein, K24 that bears high similarity to the type I keratins and displays a unique expression profile. However, the role of K24 is incompletely understood. In our study, we investigated the localization of K24 within the epidermis and possible functions. Keratin 24 was found to be modestly ...

Growth of solutions of some kinds of linear difference equations

In this paper, we investigate the growth and value distribution of solutions of some kinds of linear difference equations, where there may be more than one coefficient having the same maximal order and the same maximal type. MSC: 30D35, 39A22.

Nonhuman Primate IFITM Proteins Are Potent Inhibitors of HIV and SIV

Interferon-induced transmembrane (IFITM) proteins are potent antiviral factors shown to restrict the infection of many enveloped viruses, including HIV. Here we report cloning and characterization of a panel of nonhuman primate IFITMs. We show that, similar to human IFITM, nonhuman primate IFITM proteins inhibit HIV and other primate lentiviruses. While some nonhuman primate IFITM ...

On meromorphic solutions of some linear differential equations with entire coefficients being Fabry gap series

Shun-Zhou Wu Xiu-Min Zheng In this paper, we investigate the growth and the exponent of convergence of the sequence of -points of meromorphic solutions of the linear differential equations 2015 Wu

The Cell Death Inhibitor ARC Is Induced in a Tissue-Specific Manner by Deletion of the Tumor Suppressor Gene Men1, but Not Required for Tumor Development and Growth

Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) is a genetic disorder characterized by tissue-specific tumors in the endocrine pancreas, parathyroid, and pituitary glands. Although tumor development in these tissues is dependent upon genetic inactivation of the tumor suppressor Men1, loss of both alleles of this gene is not sufficient to induce these cancers. Men1 encodes menin, a ...

On value distribution and uniqueness of meromorphic function with finite logarithmic order concerning its derivative and q-shift difference

In this paper, we study the value distribution of a meromorphic function f(z) concerning its derivative f′(z) and q-shift difference f(qz+c), where f(z) is of finite logarithmic order. We also investigate the uniqueness of differential-q-shift-difference polynomials with more general forms of entire functions of order zero.

WNT2 Promotes Cervical Carcinoma Metastasis and Induction of Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition

Background Previously, we found an 11-gene signature could predict pelvic lymph node metastasis (PLNM), and WNT2 is one of the key genes in the signature. This study explored the expression and underlying mechanism of WNT2 in PLNM of cervical cancer. Methods WNT2 expression level in cervical cancer was detected using western blotting, quantitative PCR, and immunohistochemistry. Two ...

Induction of Cell-Cell Fusion by Ebola Virus Glycoprotein: Low pH Is Not a Trigger

Ebola virus (EBOV) is a highly pathogenic filovirus that causes hemorrhagic fever in humans and animals. Currently, how EBOV fuses its envelope membrane within an endosomal membrane to cause infection is poorly understood. We successfully measure cell-cell fusion mediated by the EBOV fusion protein, GP, assayed by the transfer of both cytoplasmic and membrane dyes. A small molecule ...

CD146 as an adverse prognostic factor in uterine sarcoma

Background Uterine sarcoma is an aggressive malignancy with a poor prognosis. This study aimed to determine the expression of CD146, P53, and Ki-67 in uterine sarcoma and to evaluate their prognostic significance. Methods We retrospectively analyzed the prognosis and clinicopathologic features of 68 patients with uterine sarcoma. Immunohistochemical analyses of CD146, P53, and ...

Existence and growth of meromorphic solutions of some nonlinear q-difference equations

In this paper, we investigate the existence of transcendental meromorphic solutions of order zero of some nonlinear q-difference equations and some more general equations. We also give some estimates on the growth of transcendental meromorphic solutions of these equations. Some examples are given to illustrate the sharpness of some of our results. MSC:30D35, 39B32.

A scoring system is an effective tool for predicting central lymph node metastasis in papillary thyroid microcarcinoma: a case-control study

Background The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinicopathologic and ultrasonographic (US) characteristics and establish an effective scoring system for predicting central lymph node metastasis (CLNM) in papillary thyroid microcarcinoma (PTMC). Methods A total of 498 patients with PTMC who underwent total thyroidectomy or lobectomy with therapeutic central lymph node ...

New Point Mutations in Surface and Core Genes of Hepatitis B Virus Associated with Acute on Chronic Liver Failure Identified by Complete Genomic Sequencing

The objective of this study was to identify new viral biomarkers associated with acute on chronic liver failure (ACLF) by complete genomic sequencing of HBV. Hepatitis B virus mutations associated with ACLF were screened by Illumina high-throughput sequencing in twelve ACLF cases and twelve age-matched mild chronic hepatitis B patients, which were validated in 438 chronic hepatitis ...

Direct targeting sperm-associated antigen 9 by miR-141 influences hepatocellular carcinoma cell growth and metastasis via JNK pathway

Background The aberrant expression of sperm-associated antigen 9 (SPAG9) is associated with numerous cancers, including hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The exploration of molecules and mechanisms regulating SPAG9 expression may provide new options for HCC therapy. Methods MiRNA target prediction programs were used to explore SPAG9-targeted miRNAs. SPAG9 and miR-141 expression were ...

Effect of the CCND1 A870G polymorphism on prostate cancer risk: a meta-analysis of 3,820 cases and 3,825 controls

Background Cyclin D1 (CCND1) is critical in the transition of the cell cycle from the G1 to S phases, and unbalanced cell cycle regulation is a hallmark of carcinogenesis. Numerous epidemiological studies have evaluated the association between the CCND1 A870G polymorphism and the risk of prostate cancer (PCa). However, these studies have yielded conflicting results. Methods In the ...

Maternal Gestational Smoking, Diabetes, Alcohol Drinking, Pre-Pregnancy Obesity and the Risk of Cryptorchidism: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Observational Studies
