Cruciferous vegetable consumption and the risk of pancreatic cancer: a meta-analysis

Background Previous studies regarding the association between cruciferous vegetable intake and pancreatic cancer risk have reported inconsistent results. We conducted a meta-analysis to demonstrate the potential association between them. Methods A systematic literature search of papers was conducted in March 2014 using PubMed, EMBASE, and Web of Science, and the references of the...

The Role of the Androgen Receptor in the Development and Progression of Bladder Cancer

Men are at a higher risk of developing bladder cancer than women. Since bladder cancer cell lines and tissues were found to express the androgen receptor, efforts have been made to inspect whether androgen-mediated androgen receptor signals are implicated in bladder carcinogenesis as well as cancer progression. Mounting evidence supports the view that bladder cancer is a member...

Influence of defect density on the ZnO nanostructures of dye-sensitized solar cells

The relationship between bilayer nanostructure, defect density and dye-sensitized solar cell (DSCC) performances was investigated. By adjusting bilayer nanostructures, defect density of ZnO nanodendrite-nanorods structure was decreased comparing to that of nanoflower-nanorods structure. The performances of DSCC based on ZnO nanodendrites-nanorods structure and nanoflower-nanorods...

The combined effects of X-ray radiation and hindlimb suspension on bone loss

Outer space is a complex environment with various phenomena that negatively affect bone metabolism, including microgravity and highly energized ionizing radiation. In the present study, we used four groups of male Wistar rats treated with or without four-week hindlimb suspension after 4 Gy of X-rays to test whether there is a combined effect for hindlimb suspension and X-ray...

PTH Is a Promising Auxiliary Index for the Clinical Diagnosis of Aldosterone-Producing Adenoma

Parathyroid hormone (PTH) stimulates aldosterone secretion in human adrenocortex and is regulated by the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. We speculated that measurement of PTH may be a valuable aid in the diagnosis of aldosterone-producing adenoma (APA).

Hydrochemistry of the Hot Springs in Western Sichuan Province Related to the Wenchuan 8.0 Earthquake

Hydrogeochemistry of 32 hot springs in the western Sichuan Province after the Wenchuan 8.0 earthquake was investigated by analyzing the concentrations of cation and anion and the isotopic compositions of hydrogen and oxygen. The water samples of the hot springs were collected four times from June 2008 to April 2010. Hydrogeochemical data indicated the water samples can be...

Molecular Characterization of Streptococcus agalactiae Isolated from Bovine Mastitis in Eastern China

One hundred and two Streptococcus agalactiae (group B streptococcus [GBS]) isolates were collected from dairy cattle with subclinical mastitis in Eastern China during 2011. Clonal groups were established by multilocus sequence typing (MLST) and pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE), respectively. Capsular polysaccharides (CPS), pilus and alpha-like-protein (Alp) family genes...

Microarray Analysis of the Effect of Streptococcus equi subsp. zooepidemicus M-Like Protein in Infecting Porcine Pulmonary Alveolar Macrophage

Streptococcus equi subsp. zooepidemicus (S. zooepidemicus), which belongs to Lancefield group C streptococci, is an important pathogen of domesticated species, causing septicemia, meningitis and mammitis. M-like protein (SzP) is an important virulence factor of S. zooepidemicus and contributes to bacterial infection and antiphagocytosis. To increase our knowledge of the mechanism...

PSCA acts as a tumor suppressor by facilitating the nuclear translocation of RB1CC1 in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma

Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is an aggressive malignancy; its mechanisms of development and progression are poorly understood. By high-throughput transcriptome sequencing (RNA-Seq) profiling of three pairs of primary ESCCs and their corresponding non-tumorous tissues, we identified that prostate stem cell antigen ( PSCA ), a gene that encodes a...

Insight into the specific virulence related genes and toxin-antitoxin virulent pathogenicity islands in swine streptococcosis pathogen Streptococcus equi ssp. zooepidemicus strain ATCC35246

Background Streptococcus equi ssp. zooepidemicus (S. zooepidemicus) is an important pathogen causing swine streptococcosis in China. Pathogenicity islands (PAIs) of S. zooepidemicus have been transferred among bacteria through horizontal gene transfer (HGT) and play important roles in the adaptation and increased virulence of S. zooepidemicus. The present study used comparative...

USP2a negatively regulates IL-1β- and virus-induced NF-κB activation by deubiquitinating TRAF6

The transcription factor NF-κB plays critical roles in many biological processes, especially immunity. The signaling to NF-κB activation is subtly regulated to avoid harmful immune effects. In this report, we identified ubiquitin-specific protease 2 isoform a (USP2a) as a novel negative regulator in Toll-like receptors/IL-1β- and Sendai virus (SeV)-induced NF-κB activation...

Extracellular overexpression of recombinant Thermobifida fusca cutinase by alpha-hemolysin secretion system in E. coli BL21(DE3)

Background Extracellular expression of proteins has an absolute advantage in a large-scale industrial production. In our previous study, Thermobifida fusca cutinase, an enzyme mainly utilized in textile industry, was expressed via type II secretory system in Escherichia coli BL21(DE3), and it was found that parts of the expressed protein was accumulated in the periplasmic space...
