STUDY DESIGN A retrospective analysis of 150 adolescents who underwent spinal fusion for idiopathic scoliosis. OBJECTIVE To analyse the incidence of the postoperative proximal junctional kyphosis after posterior fusion to the upper thoracic vertebra in adolescents with idiopathic scoliosis and to explore its risk factors. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA The(More)
The completion of the human genome project and the development of high-throughput approaches herald a dramatic acceleration in the pace of biological research. One of the most compelling next steps will be learning the functional roles of all proteins. Achievement of this goal depends in part on the rapid expression and isolation of proteins at large scale.(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of rivaroxaban for preventing venous thromboembolism (VTE) after lumbar spine surgery. METHODS In this randomized, controlled study, 665 patients who underwent lumbar surgery were randomly assigned to receive either rivaroxaban or parnaparin. Rivaroxaban and parnaparin were used(More)
Kinases catalyze the phosphorylation of proteins, lipids, sugars, nucleosides, and other important cellular metabolites and play key regulatory roles in all aspects of eukaryotic cell physiology. Here, we describe the mining of public databases to collect the sequence information of all identified human kinase genes and the cloning of the corresponding(More)
Cholera, an infectious disease with global impact, is caused by pathogenic strains of the bacterium Vibrio cholerae. High-throughput functional proteomics technologies now offer the opportunity to investigate all aspects of the proteome, which has led to an increased demand for comprehensive protein expression clone resources. Genome-scale reagents for(More)
We report the production and availability of over 7000 fully sequence verified plasmid ORF clones representing over 3400 unique human genes. These ORF clones were derived using the human MGC collection as template and were produced in two formats: with and without stop codons. Thus, this collection supports the production of either native protein or(More)
STUDY DESIGN Retrospective case series. OBJECTIVE To discuss the clinical efficacy of anterior cervical surgery of decompression, reduction, stabilization, and fusion in treating subaxial cervical facet dislocation without spinal cord injury or with mild spinal cord injury monitored by spinal cord evoked potential. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA The optimal(More)
INTRODUCTION Matrix metalloproteinase 14 (MMP14) plays an important role in the pathophysiology of intervertebral disc degeneration (IVDD). The present study aimed to determine whether two single nucleotide polymorphisms (-378 T/C and -364 G/T) of MMP14 were associated with the risk and severity of IVDD in the Chinese Han population.
