The inheritance of yield-related traits in rapeseed (Brassica napus) is poorly understood, and the investigations on mapping of quantitative trait loci (QTL) for such traits are only few. QTL related to six traits were mapped which include plant height (PH), height of lowest primary effective branch (HPB), length of main inflorescence (LMI), silique length(More)
RATIONALE The prevalence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in China is largely unknown. OBJECTIVES To obtain the COPD prevalence in China through a large-population, spirometry-based, cross-sectional survey of COPD. METHODS Urban and rural population-based cluster samples were randomly selected from seven provinces/cities. All residents 40(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVES Structural and functional brain changes may contribute to neural dysfunction in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). However, the effect of OSA on resting-state brain activity has not been established. The objective of this study was to investigate alterations in resting-state functional connectivity (rsFC) of the common brain(More)
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common condition characterized by repetitive episodes of complete (apnea) or partial (hypopnea) obstruction of the upper airway during sleep, resulting in oxygen desaturation and arousal from sleep. Intermittent hypoxia (IH) resulting from OSA may cause structural neuron damage and dysfunction in the central nervous system(More)
BACKGROUND CPAP is the first choice for most patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), but the adherence to CPAP is suboptimal. The purpose of this study was to assess the adherence to CPAP therapy of Chinese OSA patients with CPAP therapy. METHODS Two-hundred ten patients who had been diagnosed with OSA and had experienced CPAP titration trial as(More)
BACKGROUND The right anterior insula (AIns) is an important node of the salience network and serves to switch between two major cognitive-related functional brain networks, ie, the central executive network (CEN) and the default mode network (DMN), both of which show functional deficits in obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) patients. However, the effect of OSA(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the mechanism by which oxidative stress induced by chronic intermittent hypoxia (IH) causes myocardial damage in obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome. METHODS A total of 160 Wistar rats were divided into five experimental groups and subjected to chronic IH with different concentrations of(More)
Autophagy is a specific universal biological phenomenon in eukaryotic cells, which is characterized by cytoplasmic vacuoles in the process of degrading cellular contents in lysosomes. The hippocampus plays an important role in higher nervous activities such as emotional integration, cognition, and memory. As an area closely related to learning and memory(More)
Gentamicin (GM) was discovered in 1963 and was introduced into parenteral usage in 1971. Since then, GM has been widely used in medicinal applications. The Food and Drug Administration of the United States approved the routine prescription of GM to treat the following infectious disorders: infection due to Klebsiella pneumoniae, Escherichia coli, Serratia(More)
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) occurs in 2% of middle-aged women and 4% of middle-aged men in the general population and the prevalence is much higher in specific patient groups. Intermittent hypoxia (IH, oxygen desaturation and re-oxygenation) cycle, a major pathophysiologic character of OSA, and the physiological responses this evokes are thought to be(More)
