The apolipoprotein M (ApoM) gene is critical in the formation of pre-β-high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and cholesterol efflux to HDL. In this case and control study, 314 ischemic stroke patients and 389 healthy controls were analyzed for three ApoM gene single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), i.e., C-1065A, T-855C, and T-778C, using a SNaPshot Multiplex(More)
Akirin2 is an important nuclear factor which plays functions in innate immune response, myogenesis, muscle development, and carcinogenesis. In this study, akirin2 genes were cloned from 4-day-old Sanhuang and AA+ broiler, and its expression patterns were analyzed by RT-PCR. The results showed that there were four SNPs in the 5′-terminal region of akirin2(More)
Two promising areas of research with respect to lithium ion batteries (LIB's) include (a) transition metal oxides, and (b) other high capacity Li-containing compounds that can serve as conversion reactions. Recent studies show that utilizing conversion reactions leads to greater capacities, and nano-porous carbons (NPCs) impregnated by materials such as(More)
