Thousands of long intergenic noncoding RNAs (lincRNAs) have been identified in the human and mouse genomes, some of which play important roles in fundamental biological processes. The pig is an important domesticated animal, however, pig lincRNAs remain poorly characterized and it is unknown if they were involved in the domestication of the pig. Here, we(More)
Angiopoietin-like protein 6 (ANGPTL6), which plays an important role in angiogenesis and energy metabolism as a circulating orphan peptide secreted by liver, could produce a potential effect on growth and development of animals. The objective of this study was to detect genetic variations of ANGPTL6 gene in 732 Qinchuan cattle, as well as to analyze their(More)
The anatomical complexity of the paraclinoid region has made surgical treatment of intracranial ophthalmic segment aneurysms (OSAs) difficult. This study evaluated the safety and efficacy of endovascular treatment of paraclinoid aneurysms. We conducted a retrospective study of 28 patients with 30 aneurysms of the paraclinoid in whom treatment with(More)
Skin cancer is one of the most common cancers worldwide. There are three major skin cancer types: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma. General risk factors for skin cancer include fair skin, a history of tanning and sunburn, family history of skin cancer, exposure to ultraviolet rays and a large number of moles. The(More)
AIM To determine whether specific clinical and radiographic factors predispose arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) presenting with seizure and to predict the seizure risk for individual AVM patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS Clinical features and cerebral angiograms of consecutive 45 unruptured AVM patients who were diagnosed in our center in a 2-year period(More)
Transmembrane protein 18 (TMEM18) gene is expressed in the central nervous system that has recently been linked to human obesity and body mass index (BMI) in genome wide association studies (GWAS). In this study, two novel single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), g.3835 G > A (aa. Gly > Ser) and g.3865 A > G were detected in cattle TMEM18 gene by DNA(More)
We report our experience with basal ganglia AVM embolization and clinical outcomes after embolization. We retrospectively evaluated consecutive 15 patients with AVMs in the basal ganglia with respect to the endovascular treatment of these lesions. Treatment consisted of embolization and radiosurgery in combination. The angiographic follow-up after the last(More)
