A PCR-based method to distinguish fungi of the rice sheath-blight complex, Rhizoctonia solani, R. oryzae and R. oryzae-sativae.
Identification of Rhizoctonia solani, R. oryzae and R. oryzae-sativae, components of the rice sheath disease complex, is extremely difficult and often inaccurate and as a result may hinder the… Expand

The authors performed a systematic review of the association of complement component 2(C2)/complement factor B (CFB) gene polymorphisms with age-related macular degeneration (AMD). In total, data… Expand
Evidence of association of APOE with age‐related macular degeneration ‐ a pooled analysis of 15 studies
Age‐related macular degeneration (AMD) is the most common cause of incurable visual impairment in high‐income countries. Previous studies report inconsistent associations between AMD and… Expand

ABSTRACT Cladobotryum dendroides (= Dactylium dendroides) has hitherto been regarded as the major causal agent of cobweb disease of the cultivated mushroom, Agaricus bisporus. Nucleotide sequence… Expand
Identification of benzimidazole resistance in Cladobotryum dendroides using a PCR-based method
Cladobotryum dendroides, causal agent of cobweb disease of Agaricus bisporus, has become increasingly resistant to methylbenzimidazole carbamate (MBC) fungicides following the extensive use of MBC in… Expand
Socioeconomic position, lifestyle habits and biomarkers of epigenetic aging: a multi-cohort analysis
Differences in health status by socioeconomic position (SEP) tend to be more evident at older ages, suggesting the involvement of a biological mechanism responsive to the accumulation of deleterious… Expand
Systematic review and meta-analysis of the association between complement component 3 and age-related macular degeneration: a HuGE review and meta-analysis.
The authors performed a meta-analysis to estimate the magnitude of polymorphism effects for the complement component C3 gene (C3) and their possible mode of action on age-related macular degeneration… Expand
DNA hypermethylation and DNA hypomethylation is present at different loci in chronic kidney disease
Genetic risk factors for chronic kidney disease (CKD) are being identified through international collaborations. By comparison, epigenetic risk factors for CKD have only recently been considered… Expand

PURPOSE Polymorphic variation in genes involved in regulation of the complement system has been implicated as a major cause of genetic risk, in addition to the LOC387715/HTRA1 locus and other… Expand
Variations in apolipoprotein E frequency with age in a pooled analysis of a large group of older people.

- American journal of epidemiology
- 15 June 2011
Variation in the apolipoprotein E gene (APOE) has been reported to be associated with longevity in humans. The authors assessed the allelic distribution of APOE isoforms ε2, ε3, and ε4 among 10,623… Expand
