RNAs transcribed from a full-length infectious cDNA clone of the bamboo mosaic potexvirus (strain O) genome, pBaMV-O, were infectious to Nicotiana benthamiana plants. Mutant genomes in which the poly(A) tail is absent or replaced by a 3' tRNA-like structure from turnip yellow mosaic virus RNA failed to amplify detectably in N. benthamiana protoplasts. No… (More)
This study examined a new emotional writing paradigm, that is PDDP. PDDP instructs participants to write diary in first-person pronoun first, and then narrate the same event from a different perspective using second-person pronoun. Finally, the participants write it again with third-person pronoun from yet another perspective. These three narrations were to… (More)
BACKGROUND The pathophysiology of poststroke depression (PSD) remains elusive because of its proposed multifactorial nature. Accumulating evidence suggests that brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) plays a key role in the pathophysiology of depression and PSD. And the cerebellar dysfunction may be important in the etiology of depression; it is not clear… (More)

Aim: To explore the expression of brain deriverd neurotrophic factors (BDNF) and neurotrophic factor-3 (NT-3) in the CSF of patients with Tuberculous meningitis (TBM). And elucidate the underlying mechanisms. Methodology: Prospective observational clinical study performed on 18 adults with TBM and 12 Adults with viral meningo-encephalitis (ME). 9 controls… (More)
