The pig, particularly the miniature pig (minipig), is becoming an important animal model due to its physiological and anatomical similarities to humans. Bama minipigs (Sus scrofa domestica), a Chinese natural minipig breed, are a promising animal model. The pig is a useful model for drug metabolism and pharmacological studies due to the similar properties(More)
Kunming mice are the most widely used outbred colony in China. Differences in biological characters and drug reactions among different populations have been observed when using Kunming mice. But the molecular genetic profiles of Kunming mice and the extent of genetic differentiation among populations are unclear. Fifteen microsatellite markers were screened(More)
The effect of exogenous γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) on chilling injury of peach fruit was investigated. Freshly harvested peaches were treated with 1, 5, or 10 mM GABA at 20 °C for 10 min and then stored at 1 °C for up to 5 weeks. The results showed that all of the GABA treatments could reduce chilling injury of peach fruit with 5 mM being the most effective(More)
UNLABELLED The Chinese giant salamander (Andrias davidianus), renowned as a living fossil, is the largest and longest-lived amphibian species in the world. Its skin has developed mucous gland which could secrete a large amount of mucus under the scraping and electric stimulation, and the molting is the degraded skin stratum corneum. Although several(More)
In recent years, Tibetan pig and Bama pig are popularly used as animal models for medical researches. However, little genomic information is available for the two breeds, particularly regarding gene expression pattern at the whole-transcriptome level. In this study, we characterized the pituitary transcriptome profile along their postnatal developmental(More)
BACKGROUND Chilling injury (CI) limits the storage period and shelf-life of red-fleshed loquat fruit (Eriobotrya japonica Lindl.), which leads to a remarkable loss after cold storage. To develop an effective technique to reduce CI, the effects of a 38 degrees C heat treatment in air for 5 h, plus storage at 1 degrees C for 35 days, on internal browning (IB)(More)
INTRODUCTION The diagnosis of malignant ascites is a challenging problem in clinical practice, non-invasive techniques should be developed to improve diagnostic accuracy. The diagnostic performances of tumor markers in malignant ascites remained unsettled. Our aim was to evaluate diagnostic performance of tumor markers in differential diagnosis of benign(More)
Reactivation of wild-type p53 (wt-p53) function is an attractive therapeutic approach to p53-defective cancers. An ideal p53-based gene therapy should restore wt-p53 production and reduces mutant p53 transcripts simultaneously. In this study, we described an alternative strategy named as trans-splicing that repaired mutant p53 transcripts in hepatocellular(More)
Mutation in the p53 gene is arguably the most frequent type of gene-specific alterations in human cancers. Current p53-based gene therapy contains the administration of wt-p53 or the suppression of mutant p53 expression in p53-defective cancer cells. . We hypothesized that trans-splicing could be exploited as a tool for the correction of mutant p53(More)
The effects of methyl jasmonate (MeJA) on postharvest decay and antioxidant capacity in harvested Chinese bayberry fruit were investigated. Chinese bayberries were treated with 0, 1, 10, 100, or 1000 micromol L(-1) MeJA at 20 degrees C for 6 h and then stored at 0 degrees C for 12 days. MeJA at 10 micromol L(-1) was most effective in reducing fruit decay;(More)
