“A bear, however hard he tries, grows tubby without exercise.” – A. A. Milne You don’t need to knock yourself out at the gym each day to reap the many health benefits of daily exercise. With simple planning and a determination to engage in a healthier lifestyle, you can add easy stints of exercise to your schedule without breaking too much of a sweat. Best of all, you may realize some of these 10 health benefits of daily exercise. Exercise elevates your mood When you are physically active, it stimulates brain chemicals that make you feel better and lifts your mood. Some experts say that exercise of any intensity, such as a walk or time on the elliptical, exercise bike, or other equipment at a home or the gym can even be instrumental in preventing future depression. A study in the journal Brain Plasticity reports that even a single episode of physical exercise confers “significant positive effects” on mood, as well as cognitive functions. Control your weight with exercise Anyone experiencing problems with fluctuating weight, an accumulation of extra pounds, weight loss, or difficulty maintaining a healthy weight can benefit from regular daily exercise plus a healthy diet. When you exercise vigorously, you burn even more calories than when you walk around the office. And burning calories can make your desired weight goal easier to attain.

However, whether Capn4 is involved in prostate cancer remains unclear. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the expression, biological function and regulatory mechanism of Capn4 in prostate cancer. Herein, we found that Capn4 was highly expressed in prostate cancer cell lines compared with normal prostate cells. Capn4 ge...

In this study, we show that miR-590-3p was significantly decreased both in osteosarcoma tissues and cell lines, suggesting a potential role of miR-590-3p in osteosarcoma. Over-expression of miR-590-3p inhibited U2OS cell viability as shown by the CCK-8 assay and clonogenic assay. Ki-67 immunofluorescence staining and cell cycle analysis revealed that up-regulation of miR-590-3p inhibited U2OS cell proliferation. Transfection with miR-590-3p mimics suppressed PCNA, Cyclin D1 and CDK4 expression and increased p53 and p21 expression. In addition, U2OS cells transfected with miR-590-3p mimics exhibited reduced cell invasion an...
