Cartilage progenitor cells combined with PHBV in cartilage tissue engineering

Bone marrow-derived stem cells (BMSCs) and chondrocytes have been reported to present “dedifferentiation” and “phenotypic loss” during the chondrogenic differentiation process in cartilage tissue engineering, and cartilage progenitor cells (CPCs) are novel seeding cells for cartilage tissue engineering. In our previous study, cartilage progenitor cells from different subtypes of...

Pre-culture Sudan Black B treatment suppresses autofluorescence signals emitted from polymer tissue scaffolds

In tissue engineering, autofluorescence of polymer scaffolds often lowers the image contrast, making it difficult to examine cells and subcellular structures. Treating the scaffold materials with Sudan Black B (SBB) after cell fixation can effectively suppress autofluorescence, but this approach is not conducive to live cell imaging. Post-culture SBB treatment also disrupts...

ALA Pretreatment Improves Waterlogging Tolerance of Fig Plants

5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA), a natural and environmentally friendly plant growth regulator, can improve plant tolerance to various environmental stresses. However, whether ALA can improve plant waterlogging tolerance is unknown. Here, we investigated the effects of ALA pretreatment on the waterlogging-induced damage of fig (Ficus carica Linn.) plants, which often suffer from...

Diastolic Augmentation Index Improves Radial Augmentation Index in Assessing Arterial Stiffness

Arterial stiffness is an important risk factor for cardiovascular events. Radial augmentation index (AI r ) can be more conveniently measured compared with carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (cfPWV). However, the performance of AI r in assessing arterial stiffness is limited. This study proposes a novel index AI rd , a combination of AI r and diastolic augmentation index (AI d...

Restricted-Access Al-Mediated Material Transport in Al Contacting of PureGaB Ge-on-Si p + n Diodes

The effectiveness of using nanometer-thin boron (PureB) layers as interdiffusion barrier to aluminum (Al) is studied for a contacting scheme specifically developed for fabricating germanium-on-silicon (Ge-on-Si) p + n photodiodes with an oxide-covered light entrance window. Contacting is achieved at the perimeter of the Ge-island anode directly to an Al interconnect metallization...

Responses of regeneration and species coexistence to single-tree selective logging for a temperate mixed forest in eastern Eurasia

Comparison of the clinical effectiveness of 3D and 2D imaging systems for laparoscopic radical cystectomy with pelvic lymph node dissection

Objective To compare the clinical effectiveness of three-dimensional (3D) and two-dimensional (2D) laparoscopic imaging systems for radical cystectomy (RC) with pelvic lymph node dissection.

CLASP2 is involved in the EMT and early progression after transurethral resection of the bladder tumor

Background Cytoplasmic linker-associated protein 2 (CLASP2) belongs to a family of microtubule plus-end tracking proteins that localizes to the distal ends of microtubules and regulate microtubule dynamics. We speculated that it might be involved in the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and progression of bladder cancer (BC). Methods Western blotting and RT-PCR were used to...

Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor and Ki-67 as Predictive Biomarkers Identify Patients Who Will Be More Sensitive to Intravesical Instillations for the Prevention of Bladder Cancer Recurrence after Radical Nephroureterectomy

Background To date, prophylactic intravesical chemotherapy after radical nephroureterectomy is one of the few available treatments that effectively prevent secondary bladder cancer. However, treating all patients with prophylactic intravesical chemotherapy is excessive for patients who are at a low risk or insensitive to the treatment. Thus, to guide individualized clinical...

A Novel Multiscale Edge Detection Approach Based on Nonsubsampled Contourlet Transform and Edge Tracking

Edge detection is a fundamental task in many computer vision applications. In this paper, we propose a novel multiscale edge detection approach based on the nonsubsampled contourlet transform (NSCT): a fully shift-invariant, multiscale, and multidirection transform. Indeed, unlike traditional wavelets, contourlets have the ability to fully capture directional and other...

Visual Perception of Procedural Textures: Identifying Perceptual Dimensions and Predicting Generation Models

Procedural models are widely used in computer graphics for generating realistic, natural-looking textures. However, these mathematical models are not perceptually meaningful, whereas the users, such as artists and designers, would prefer to make descriptions using intuitive and perceptual characteristics like "repetitive," "directional," "structured," and so on. To make up for...

The wheat AGC kinase TaAGC1 is a positive contributor to host resistance to the necrotrophic pathogen Rhizoctonia cerealis

Considerable progress has been made in understanding the roles of AGC kinases in mammalian systems. However, very little is known about the roles of AGC kinases in wheat (Triticum aestivum). The necrotrophic fungus Rhizoctonia cerealis is the major pathogen of the destructive disease sharp eyespot of wheat. In this study, the wheat AGC kinase gene TaAGC1, responding to R...

An AMC Backed Folded Dipole Slot Antenna Based on CMOS Process

A fold dipole slot antenna backed by artificial magnetic conductor (AMC) structure based on a standard 0.18 um CMOS process on chip application is firstly proposed in this paper. Conventional silicon antenna on chip (AoC) suffers from low radiation performance because the most electromagnetic energy is restricted in silicon substrate as surface wave for its high dielectric...

Maspin enhances cisplatin chemosensitivity in bladder cancer T24 and 5637 cells and correlates with prognosis of muscle-invasive bladder cancer patients receiving cisplatin based neoadjuvant chemotherapy

Background Maspin, a non-inhibitory member of the serine protease inhibitor superfamily, has been characterized as a tumor suppressor gene in multiple cancer types. Chemotherapeutic insensitivity is one of major obstacles to effectively treating muscle invasive bladder cancer (MIBC). This study was conducted to investigate the role and probable mechanism of Maspin enhancing...
