This study contributes to a better understanding of the IL-4/13A system in salmon, which as a key axis for Th2 response may be involved not only in pathogen elimination but also in adaptive immune repair that seems critical tolerance to infectious diseases.

The anti-inflammatory Plai extract was chosen as both an active ingredient and an oil phase of the system. Compared with chitosan-coated nanoemulsion (NE2-CS) and uncoated nanoemulsion (NE1), the QCS coating could improve the stability of the Plai extract during 28 day...

Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) analysis showed absence of chemical reaction between the encapsulated epoxy or mercaptan and PAN. Moreover, transmittance electron microscopy (TEM) images proved that the encapsulated epoxy and mercaptan were uniformly distributed within core of the nan...

The detection of EpCAM is vital for personalized diagnosis and therapy but is challenging because of its extremely low concentration in peripheral blood. In our work, an electrochemical aptasensor has been developed to quantitatively detect EpCAM at low concentrations. A gold electrode modified with an a...

Minimizing the nanoparticles’ biohazard remains a challenge due to the insufficient understanding on the nanoparticle-induced cell death mechanism. In the presented study, we observed the lysosome and genome injuries and so caused cell cycle changes and regulations of retinal ganglion neuron cell 5 (RG...

The B-cell lymphoma 9 (BCL9) oncogene functions as a transcriptional co-activator of the Wnt/ β-catenin pathway, which plays critical roles in CRC pathogenesis. Here we have identified a β-catenin-independent function of BCL9 in a poor-prognosis subtype of CRC tumors characterized by expression of stromal and ne...

However, how CADM1 expression in ovarian cancer cells and the mechanisms of its tumor suppressor function is not fully understood.We created ovarian cancer ES-2 cell lines in which CADM1 was stably up-regulated. Genes differentially expressed in CADM1-overexpressing ES-2 cells.
