Alpha-(1,2)-fucosyltransferase (FUT1) gene has been identified as a candidate gene for regulating the expression of Escherichia coli F18 receptor gene (ECF18R) which promotes adherence of Enterotoxigenic (ETEC) and Verotoxigenic (VTEC) Escherichia coli (E. coli) via F18 fimbriae. In order to illustrate the polymorphisms of FUT1 and their effects on(More)
It is necessary that genetic markers or biomarkers can be used to predict resistance towards a wide range of infectious diseases. In the present study, we estimated the potential markers and measured their relationship with heritabilities of a wide range of immune traits. Polymorphisms in exon 13 of Mx1, intron 25 of BAT2 and intron 3 of CXCL12 were(More)
Lineage specific human embryonic stem cell (hESC) reporter cell line is a versatile tool for biological studies on real time monitoring of differentiation, physiological and biochemical features of special cell types and pathological mechanism of disease. Here we report the generation of ChAT-zsGreen reporter hESC line that express zsGreen under the control(More)
The results of studies on association between the C677T polymorphism of the 5,10-methylene-tetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene and osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH) are controversial. To derive a more precise estimation of the relationship between the MTHFR C677T polymorphism and ONFH, a meta-analysis was performed. Eight studies on MTHFR C677T(More)
Customer requirements play an important role in securing the competitive advantages of a company's new product development endeavors. Based on the concept of quality function deployment (QFD), this article presents a novel procedure to effectively link customer requirements with design characteristics for product design. The proposed procedure comprises an(More)
Hepatitis B was still a worldwide health problem. This study aimed to conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to assess a more precise estimation of factors that influence the response to hepatitis B vaccine in adults. Our included studies examined seroprotection rates close to the end of vaccination schedules in healthy adult populations. This(More)
The hepatitis B prevalence rate in adults is still at a high to intermediate level in China. Our purpose was to explore the incidence rate and protective immune barrier against hepatitis B in adults in China. A sample of 317961 participants was multi-screened for hepatitis B surface antigens (HBsAg) in a large-scale cohort of the National Hepatitis B(More)
Hepatitis B and hepatitis C are 2 types of potentially life-threatening liver diseases with high infection rate. Body piercing represents a progressively popular sociocultural phenomenon which is also a potential exposure approach for hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV). Conclusions from those researches with statistically risk assessment of(More)
