The variability in DNA repair capacity of the general population may depend in part upon common variants in DNA repair genes. X-ray repair cross complementing group 1 (XRCC1) is an important DNA base excision repair gene and exhibits polymorphic variation. Using the Long Island Breast Cancer Study Project, a population-based case-control study, we evaluated(More)
BACKGROUND Pyropia haitanensis and P. yezoensis are two economically important marine crops that are also considered to be research models to study the physiological ecology of intertidal seaweed communities, evolutionary biology of plastids, and the origins of sexual reproduction. This plastid genome information will facilitate study of breeding,(More)
This study investigated fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21)-mediated cardiac protection against apoptosis caused by diabetic lipotoxicity and explored the protective mechanisms involved. Cardiac Fgf21 mRNA expression was examined in a diabetic mouse model using real-time PCR. After pre-incubation of palmitate-treated cardiac H9c2 cells and primary(More)

A critical challenge for chemotherapy is the development of chemoresistance in breast cancer. However, the underlying mechanisms and validated predictors remain unclear. Extracellular vesicles (EVs) have gained attention as potential means for cancer cells to share intracellular contents. In adriamycin-resistant human breast cancer cells (MCF-7/ADM), we(More)
The Tibetan gazelle (Procapra picticaudata) is a threatened species and distributed on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau of China (Qinghai Province, Tibet Autonomous Region and the adjacent Gansu Province, Sichuan Province, and Xinjiang Uigur Autonomous Region). Small peripheral populations of Tibetan gazelle were once found in northern Sikkim and Ladakh, but now(More)
Swertia mussotii Franch has anti-hepatitis activity and contains a high level of iridoid monoterpenoids. The cytochrome P450 monooxygenase (CYP) geraniol 10-hydroxylase (G10H) is thought to play an important role in iridoid monoterpenoid and indole alkaloid biosynthesis. Here we report the isolation of a full-length cDNA clone of S. mussotii G10H (SmG10H).(More)
In recent years, as mobile smart device sales grow quickly, the development of mobile applications (apps) keeps accelerating, so does mobile app repackaging. Attackers can easily repackage an app under their own names or embed advertisements to earn pecuniary profits. They can also modify a popular app by inserting malicious payloads into the original app(More)
To explore the effectiveness and safety of intravenous thrombolysis (IVT) using recombinant tissue plasminogen activator in treating acute ischemic stroke patients with concomitant intracranial aneurysms (IA) of ≤3 mm. Clinical data of patients who were treated in Tianjin Huanhu Hospital from June 2012 to September 2013 were retrospectively analyzed.(More)
In this work, we address the problem of algorithm plagiarism, which occurs when a plagiarist, violating intellectual property rights, steals others' algorithms and covertly implements them. In contrast to software plagiarism, which has been extensively studied, limited attention has been paid to algorithm plagiarism. In this paper, we propose two dynamic(More)
