The Tyr52 residue of d-lactate dehydrogenase (d-LDH) from Lactobacillus pentosus was replaced with small hydrophobic residues and overexpressed in E. coli BL21 (DE3) to enhance 3-phenyllactic acid (PLA) synthesis by whole-cell catalyst. Escherichia coli pET-28a-d-ldh produced 12.2 g PLA l−1 in 3 h, with a molar conversion rate of 61 %, while E. coli(More)
Neurocysticercosis, involvement of the central nervous system by taenia solium, is one of the most common parasitic diseases of the CNS. However, spinal involvement by neurocysticercosis is uncommon. Here, we reported a 40-year-old woman with intramedullary cysticercosis in the thoracic spinal cord. MRI revealed two well-defined round intramedullary lesions(More)
Surgery-induced acute postoperative pain may lead to prolonged convalescence. The present study was designed to investigate the effects of intraoperative dexmedetomidine on postoperative analgesia following abdominal colectomy surgeries. Eighty patients scheduled for abdominal colectomy surgery under general anesthesia were divided into 2 groups, which were(More)
The laterals of both shoots and roots often maintain a particular angle with respect to the gravity vector, and this angle can change during organ development and in response to environmental stimuli. However, the cellular and molecular mechanisms of the lateral organ gravitropic response are still poorly understood. Here it is demonstrated that the young(More)
Surgery-induced acute postoperative pain and stress response may lead to prolonged convalescence. The present study was designed to investigate the effects of intraoperative dexmedetomidine on postoperative analgesia and recovery after abdominal colectomy surgeries.Sixty-seven patients scheduled for abdominal colectomy under general anesthesia were divided(More)
Mechanisms of glutathione (GSH) over-accumulation in mutant Saccharomyces cerevisiae Y518 screened by ultraviolet and nitrosoguanidine-induced random mutagenesis were studied. Y518 accumulated higher levels of GSH and l-cysteine than its wild-type strain. RNA-Seq and pathway enrichment analysis indicated a difference in the expression of key genes involved(More)
BACKGROUND The principal aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of incorporating four-dimensional (4D)-computed tomography (CT)-based functional information into treatment planning and to evaluate the potential benefits of individualized beam setups to better protect lung functionality in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Treatment outcomes vary greatly in patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). The purpose of this study is to evaluate the influence of radiation and chemotherapy drug action pathway gene polymorphisms on the survival of patients with locoregionally advanced NPC treated with cisplatin- and fluorouracil-based chemoradiotherapy.

Surgery-induced acute postoperative pain and stress response can lead to prolonged convalescence. The present study was designed to investigate the effects of intraoperative dexmedetomidine on postoperative analgesia and recovery following abdominal hysterectomy surgeries. Sixty-four patients scheduled for abdominal hysterectomy under general anesthesia(More)
Previous studies have reported that intraoperative dexme-detomidine has morphine-sparing effects in patient-controlled analgesia (PCA). The present study was designed to investigate the possible sex differences in the morphine-sparing effects of intraoperative dexmede-tomidine following general anesthesia. A total of 223 patients scheduled for surgeries(More)
