Effects of trace Cr on as-cast microstructure and microstructural evolution of semi-solid isothermal heat treatment ZC61 magnesium alloy

The content and kind of trace elements in magnesium alloys have important effects on their ascast and semi-solid microstructures. In this research work, effects of trace Cr on as-cast and semi-solid microstructures of ZC61 magnesium alloy were investigated by metal mold casting and semi-solid isothermal heat treatment. The results show that the addition of Cr can refine the α-Mg...

LncRNA GAS5 regulates redox balance and dysregulates the cell cycle and apoptosis in malignant melanoma cells

PurposeClinical outcomes for advanced malignant melanoma (MM) are often poor due to tumor invasiveness, metastasis, recurrence, and multidrug resistance.MethodsWe investigated whether apoptosis, cell cycle regulation, oxidative status, and redox balance were altered by changes in the expression of the long noncoding RNA, growth arrest-specific transcript 5 (GAS5), in MM cells...

Robust Stability of Nonlinear Diffusion Fuzzy Neural Networks with Parameter Uncertainties and Time Delays

In this paper, a class of nonlinear p-Laplace diffusion BAM Cohen-Grossberg neural networks (BAM CGNNs) with time delays is investigated. In the case of with , the authors construct novel Lyapunov functional to overcome the mathematical difficulties of nonlinear p-Laplace diffusion time-delay model with parameter uncertainties, deriving the LMI-based robust stability criterion...

Phase field study on crystal orientation effects in eutectoid phase transformation

In this present work, a multi-phase field model was used to simulate the eutectoid transformation process, and on the basis of the nucleation model that was previously proposed by our research team, anisotropic and orientation relationship models were introduced to study the growth mechanism of the pearlite lamellae with anisotropy. It was found that the growth direction of the...

Recurrent Wheezing and Cough Caused by Double Aortic Arch, Not Asthma

Received 16 December 2016; Revised 26 March 2017; Accepted 9 April 2017; Published 25 July 2017 Academic Editor: Hajime Kataoka Copyright © 2017 Qiao Zhang et al. This is an open access article

Recurrent Wheezing and Cough Caused by Double Aortic Arch, Not Asthma

Introduction. Double aortic arch is a congenital vascular abnormality in which the connected segments and their branches course between and compress the trachea and esophagus, often resulting in invariable airway compression. Case Presentation. A 4-year-old boy with a history of recurrent wheezing was admitted to our hospital for evaluation of asthma based on his past medical...

Microarray profiling of circular RNAs in human papillary thyroid carcinoma

Background Non-coding circular RNAs (circRNAs) have displayed dysregulated expression in several human cancers. Here, we profiled the circRNA expression of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) tumors to improve our understanding of PTC pathogenesis. Methods Microarray profiling was performed on 18 thyroid samples, consisting of six PTC tumors, six matching contralateral normal...

Activation of G protein-coupled estrogen receptor 1 induces coronary artery relaxation via Epac/Rap1-mediated inhibition of RhoA/Rho kinase pathway in parallel with PKA

Previously, we reported that cAMP/PKA signaling is involved in GPER-mediated coronary relaxation by activating MLCP via inhibition of RhoA pathway. In the current study, we tested the hypothesis that activation of GPER induces coronary artery relaxation via inhibition of RhoA/Rho kinase pathway by cAMP downstream targets, exchange proteins directly activated by cAMP (Epac) as...

The microprotein Minion controls cell fusion and muscle formation

Although recent evidence has pointed to the existence of small open reading frame (smORF)-encoded microproteins in mammals, their function remains to be determined. Skeletal muscle development requires fusion of mononuclear progenitors to form multinucleated myotubes, a critical but poorly understood process. Here we report the identification of Minion (microprotein inducer of...

Genome-wide Two-marker linkage disequilibrium mapping of quantitative trait loci

Background In a natural population, the alleles of multiple tightly linked loci on the same chromosome co-segregate and are passed non-randomly from generation to generation. Capitalizing on this phenomenon, a group of mapping methods, commonly referred to as the linkage disequilibrium-based mapping (LD mapping), have been developed recently for detecting genetic associations...
