Increased Risk of Breast Cancer Associated with CC Genotype of Has-miR-146a Rs2910164 Polymorphism in Europeans
Background Emerging evidence suggests that microRNAs play a critical role in the pathogenesis of breast cancer. Several molecular epidemiological studies were conducted in recent years to evaluateExpand

Infection with Toxoplasma gondii is common and usually asymptomatic, but it can have serious consequences in pregnant women if passed to the developing fetus. The aims of this study were to determineExpand
Strategies to identify microRNA targets: new advances.
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small regulatory RNA molecules functioning to modulate gene expression at the post-transcriptional level, and playing an important role in many developmental and physiologicalExpand
Isolation and characterization of Streptococcus agalactiae from Nile Tilapia Oreochromis niloticus in China
Streptococcosis became an increasingly significant health problem in intensive aquaculture in China. In 2009, eight Gram-positive, chain-forming coccus strains were isolated from the outbreakExpand
Parainfluenza Virus 5 as Possible Cause of Severe Respiratory Disease in Calves, China
To the Editor: Parainfluenza virus 5 (PIV5), family Paramyxoviridae, genus Rubulavirus, was previously known as simian virus 5 because of its discovery in primary monkey kidney cells in 1954 (1).Expand
Antitumor effects of a recombinant fowlpox virus expressing Apoptin in vivo and in vitro
Apoptin is a chicken anemia virus‐derived, p53‐independent, bcl‐2‐insensitive apoptotic protein with the ability to specifically induce apoptosis in tumor cells. To explore the use of the ApoptinExpand
Novel Circovirus from Mink, China
A long-established epidemic of enteritis, caused by an unidentified pathogen distinct from parvovirus, has now been recognized in mink. In 2013, we identified a novel circovirus by degenerate PCR andExpand
Novel Orthoreovirus from Mink, China, 2011
We identified a novel mink orthoreovirus, MRV1HB-A, which seems to be closely related to human strain MRV2tou05, which was isolated from 2 children with acute necrotizing encephalopathy in 2005.Expand
IL-18 enhances protective effect in mice immunized with a Schistosoma japonicum FABP DNA vaccine.
Two recombinant plasmids, pVAX/SjFABP and pVAX/mIL-18 containing Schistosoma japonicum 14 kDa fatty acid binding protein (SjFABP) and murine IL-18, were constructed and evaluated for their ability toExpand
Molecular detection and genetic diversity of Leishmania donovani in naturally infected Phlebotomus chinensi from southwestern China.
Zoonotic visceral leishmaniasis is an important vector-borne infectious disease in western China. In this study, an epidemiological study was carried out on the vector of zoonotic visceralExpand
