  6. Upregulation of MiR-1280 Expression in Non-small Cell Lung Cancer Tissues.

    Chinese Medical Journal 128(5):670 (2015) PMID 25698202

    Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is a prolific and high-mortality disease with few effective treatments. Although the detection and surgical techniques for NSCLC continue to advance, the survival rate for the patients with NSCLC remains poor. Enhanced predictive biomarkers such as microRNAs (m...

  10. Poly (3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxyhexanoate) scaffolds coated with PhaP-RGD fusion protein promotes the proliferation and chondrogenic differentiation of human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells in vitro.

    Journal of Biomedical Materials Research, Part A 103(3):1169 (2015) PMID 25044338

    Human umbilical cord blood-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hUC-MSCs) have been widely used in tissue engineering. The aim of this study is to evaluate the ability of poly (3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxyhexanoate) (PHBHHx) scaffolds coated with polyhydroxyalkanoate binding protein fused with argi...
  11. Targeting non-coding RNAs with the CRISPR/Cas9 system in human cell lines.

    Nucleic Acids Research 43(3):e17 (2015) PMID 25414344

    The CRISPR/Cas has been recently shown to be a powerful genome-editing tool in a variety of organisms. However, these studies are mainly focused on protein-coding genes. The present study aims to determine whether this technology can be applied to non-coding genes. One of the challenges for knoc...
