1. Lamin-B in systemic inflammation, tissue homeostasis, and aging.

    Nucleus (Austin, Tex. : Print) 6(3):183 (2015) PMID 25875575

    Gradual loss of tissue function (or homeostasis) is a natural process of aging and is believed to cause many age-associated diseases. In human epidemiology studies, the low-grade and chronic systemic inflammation in elderly has been correlated with the development of aging related pathologies. A...
  2. Splicing function of mitotic regulators links R-loop-mediated DNA damage to tumor cell killing.

    Journal of Cell Biology 209(2):235 (2015) PMID 25918225 PMCID PMC4411280

    Although studies suggest that perturbing mitotic progression leads to DNA damage and p53 activation, which in turn lead to either cell apoptosis or senescence, it remains unclear how mitotic defects trigger p53 activation. We show that BuGZ and Bub3, which are two mitotic regulators localized in...

    Physica B: Condensed Matter 456:167 (2015)

    The transport property of Dirac electrons through bilayer graphene under a time periodic field is investigated. The effect of external field strength and the system parameters on the transmission probabilities is investigated. The results show that the applied time-periodic potential p...
  5. Roles of dopamine receptors and their antagonist thioridazine in hepatoma metastasis.

    OncoTargets and Therapy 8:1543 (2015) PMID 26124671 PMCID PMC4482370

    Tumor metastasis is the most common cause of death and poor prognosis for cancer patients. Therapeutics that prevent tumor metastasis are the key to prolonging the lifespan of cancer patients. Cancer stem cells are believed to be critical in the metastatic process. Recently, drug screening for c...
  6. Age-associated loss of lamin-B leads to systemic inflammation and gut hyperplasia.

    Cell 159(4):829 (2014) PMID 25417159 PMCID PMC4243052

    Aging of immune organs, termed as immunosenescence, is suspected to promote systemic inflammation and age-associated disease. The cause of immunosenescence and how it promotes disease, however, has remained unclear. We report that the Drosophila fat body, a major immune organ, undergoes immunose...

  9. Source apportionment for sediment PAHs using hybrid genetic pattern search treatment of a chemical mass balance receptor model: application to the Pearl River Delta region, China.

    Environmental Monitoring and Assessment 186(10):6651 (2014) PMID 24974235

    In order to solve the collinear problem and improve the estimation accuracy of the chemical mass balance (CMB) model which can be essentially regarded as a constrained optimization process, in this study, a hybrid genetic pattern search algorithm (HGPS) was proposed and applied to apportion the ...

    This brief proposes an output tracking control for a class of discrete-time nonlinear systems with disturbances. A standard neural network model is used to represent discrete-time nonlinear systems whose nonlinearity satisfies the sector conditions. H∞ control performance for the closed-loop sys...

  15. Nuclear lamina builds tissues from the stem cell niche.

    Fly 8(2):63 (2014) PMID 25483250

    Recent studies show that nuclear lamins, the type V intermediate filament proteins, are required for proper building of at least some organs. As the major structural components of the nuclear lamina found underneath the inner nuclear membranes, lamins are ubiquitously expressed in all animal cel...

    Female pelvic medicine & reconstructive surgery 20(6):e12 (2014) PMID 25185615

    Nephrogenic adenoma (NA) is a rare finding that represents metaplasia of the urothelium. We present a case of a 46-year-old woman who presented with a symptomatic anterior vaginal wall cyst that was found to be an NA within a urethral diverticulum. Although this remains an infrequently reported ...
