Climate change affects plants in natural and agricultural ecosystems throughout the world but little work has been done on the effects of climate change on plant disease epidemics. To illustrate such… Expand
MNS16A tandem repeats minisatellite of human telomerase gene: a risk factor for colorectal cancer.
Telomerase reactivation and expression of human telomerase gene [human telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT)] are hallmarks of unlimited proliferation potential of cancer cells. A polymorphic… Expand
On Locating Multiple Interacting Quantitative Trait Loci in Intercross Designs
A modified version (mBIC) of the Bayesian Information Criterion (BIC) has been previously proposed for backcross designs to locate multiple interacting quantitative trait loci. In this article, we… Expand
No association of XRCC1 polymorphisms Arg194Trp and Arg399Gln with colorectal cancer risk.
BACKGROUND X-ray repair cross complementation group 1 (XRCC1) plays a key role in base excision repair. The purpose of this study was to examine the association of two genetic polymorphisms in XRCC1… Expand
Managerial telework allowance decisions – a vignette study among German managers
Managers play an important role in the implementation of telework in organizations since they frequently have final approval over employees' requests for telework arrangements. Drawing upon March's… Expand
Circulating microRNA Signatures in Patients With Idiopathic and Postmenopausal Osteoporosis and Fragility Fractures.
- R. Kocijan, C. Muschitz, +11 authors M. Hackl
- The Journal of clinical endocrinology and…
- 23 August 2016
CONTEXT Established bone turnover markers do not reflect fracture risk in idiopathic male and premenopausal osteoporosis and the role of microRNAs (miRNAs) in these patients is currently unclear.… Expand
Association of IGF1 and IGFBP3 polymorphisms with colorectal polyps and colorectal cancer risk
PurposeInsulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF1) is a peptide growth factor that promotes cell proliferation and inhibits apoptosis. The bioavailability of IGF1 is regulated by the insulin-like growth… Expand
Locating Multiple Interacting Quantitative Trait Loci Using Rank-Based Model Selection
In previous work, a modified version of the Bayesian information criterion (mBIC) was proposed to locate multiple interacting quantitative trait loci (QTL). Simulation studies and real data analysis… Expand
The impact of climate change on disease constraints on production of oilseed rape

Weather data generated for different parts of the UK under five climate change scenarios (baseline, 2020s low CO2 emissions, 2020s high emissions, 2050s low emissions, 2050s high emissions) were… Expand
MNS16A tandem repeat minisatellite of human telomerase gene and prostate cancer susceptibility.
Telomere dysfunction is an early event in the development of prostate cancer and telomerase (TERT) activity is detectable in the majority of prostate cancers. Genetic variation in TERT and its… Expand
