Novel fabrication of solid-state NaBH4/Ru-based catalyst composites for hydrogen evolution using a high-energy ball-milling process
Bing-Hung Chen

Solid-state NaBH4/Ru-based catalyst composites have been synthesized for hydrogen production through a high-energy ball-milling process, providing uniform dispersion of Ru3+/ion exchange resin catalysts among pulverized NaBH4 (SBH) particles, increasing the contacts of SBH with active catalytic sites. As a result, the gravimetric hydrogen storage capacity as high as …

Improved Poly Gate Engineering for 65 nm Low Power CMOS Technology
Jone F. Chen

As complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) technology aggressively scales down to improve the performance of CMOS devices, the poly gate formation process has been investigated intensively. However, the impact of poly grain structure on device characteristics has not received much attention. In this study, we investigate the impact of a novel poly deposition method on CMOS device …

Involvement of aryl hydrocarbon receptor nuclear translocator in EGF-induced c-Jun/Sp1 mediated gene expression
Ben-Kuen Chen

Background
EGFR activation is not only important in the regulation of cell proliferation and tumorigenesis through mediating genes expression but is expressed at high levels in a variety of human tumors and has been associated with poor prognosis and lower survival rate. Thus, to identify the factors which participate in the EGF-induced gene expression, resulting in tumorigenesis …

Tobacco-specific Carcinogen Induces DNA Methyltransferases 1 Accumulation through AKT/GSK3β/βTrCP/hnRNP-U in Mice and Lung Cancer patients.
Yi-Ching Wang

The key ingredient of tobacco smoke carcinogen, nitrosamine 4-(methylnitro-samino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone (NNK, nicotine-derived nitrosamine ketone) systemically induces tumors of the lung in rat, mouse, and hamsters. NNK exposure not only leads to gene mutation but also induces hypermethylation of multiple tumor suppressor genes (TSGs) promoters in liver or lung tumors. Clinical studies indicated that …
