BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE In vivo and in vitro rat models of hormone therapy were used to test the following hypotheses: (1) estrogen acts directly on cerebrovascular estrogen receptors to increase endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS); (2) increased protein correlates with higher NOS activity; and (3) effects of estrogen on eNOS are altered by concurrent(More)
Antibody drug conjugates (ADCs) are monoclonal antibodies designed to deliver a cytotoxic drug selectively to antigen expressing cells. Several components of an ADC including the selection of the antibody, the linker, the cytotoxic drug payload and the site of attachment used to attach the drug to the antibody are critical to the activity and development of(More)
A new mycorrhizal fungal strain was isolated from hair roots of Rhododendron fortunei Lindl. grown in Huading Forest Park, Zhejiang Province, China. Morphological characterization and internal transcribed spacer rDNA analysis suggested that it belongs to Oidiodendron maius Barron, and we designated it as strain Om19. Methods for culturing Om19 were(More)
Background and Purpose—In vivo and in vitro rat models of hormone therapy were used to test the following hypotheses: (1) estrogen acts directly on cerebrovascular estrogen receptors to increase endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS); (2) increased protein correlates with higher NOS activity; and (3) effects of estrogen on eNOS are altered by concurrent(More)
The purpose of this article is to study the effect of positive antisperm antibody (AsAb) in seminal plasma on acrosomal enzyme activity, nitric oxide synthase (NOS) activity, and superxide dismutase (SOD) activity of spermatozoa. A total of 40 infertility patients with positive AsAb in seminal plasma were selected as experimental group, and 40 fertile males(More)
QTL mapping using NGS-assisted BSA was successfully applied to an F 2 population for downy mildew resistance in cucumber. QTLs detected by NGS-assisted BSA were confirmed by conventional QTL analysis. Downy mildew (DM), caused by Pseudoperonospora cubensis, is one of the most destructive foliar diseases in cucumber. QTL mapping is a fundamental approach for(More)
Ericoid mycorrhizal (ERM) fungi are specifically symbiotic with plants in the family Ericaceae. Little is known thus far about their symbiotic establishment and subsequent nitrogen (N) uptake at the molecular level. The present study devised a system for establishing a symbiotic relationship between Rhododendron fortunei Lindl. and an ERM fungus(More)
Cucumber is a typical monoecious having separate male and female flowers on the same plant, and sex expression in cucumber is mainly determined by three major genes: F/f, M/m and A/a. Gynoecy plays an important role in cucumber hybrid breeding, and the use of gynoecious lines as maternal parents ensures high productivity. This study aimed to identify a(More)
