Foxtail millet (Setaria italica), a member of the Poaceae grass family, is an important food and fodder crop in arid regions and has potential for use as a C(4) biofuel. It is a model system for other biofuel grasses, including switchgrass and pearl millet. We produced a draft genome (∼423 Mb) anchored onto nine chromosomes and annotated 38,801 genes. Key(More)
Staphylococcus aureus from bacteraemia at multiple hospitals in China were genetically characterised to improve understanding of its epidemiology. A total of 236 consecutive, non-duplicate S. aureus bacteraemia isolates were collected at 16 Chinese hospitals. Isolates were characterised by antimicrobial resistance, 19 toxin genes, agr alleles, multilocus(More)
Signal-mediated protein transport through the nuclear pore complex is of considerable interest in the field of molecular pharmaceutics. Nuclear localization signals can be used to target genes/antisense delivery systems to the nucleus Studying nuclear export is useful in enhancing the expression and the efficiency of action, of these therapeutic agents. The(More)
Ceftazidime-avibactam, aztreonam-avibactam, and comparators were tested by reference broth microdilution against 372 nonrepetitive Gram-negative bacilli (346 unselected plus 26 selected meropenem-nonsusceptible Enterobacteriaceae isolates) collected from 11 teaching hospitals in China in 2011 and 2012. Meropenem-nonsusceptible isolates produced(More)
Among 228 carbapenem-nonsusceptible Enterobacteriaceae isolated in China, 65 were carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE). Among them, 41, 22, 1, and 1 produced KPC-2, IMP-4, IMP-8, and IMP-1, respectively. KPC-2-producing CPE showed higher resistance than IMP-4-producing ones. Furthermore, the first outbreak of ST11 KPC-2-producing Klebsiella(More)
OBJECTIVES Hypervirulent Klebsiella pneumoniae (hvKP) infections occur worldwide, but carbapenem-resistant hvKP strain has rarely been observed. METHODS A retrospective study was conducted in 28 cases of carbapenem-resistant K. pneumoniae (CRKP) infections from 9 cities in China. Clinical data were collected from medical records. All the isolates were(More)
Closely located at the tumor suppressor locus 16q22.1, CKLF-like MARVEL transmembrane domain-containing member 3 and 4 (CMTM3 and CMTM4) encode two CMTM family proteins, which link chemokines and the transmembrane-4 superfamily. In contrast to the broad expression of both CMTM3 and CMTM4 in normal human adult tissues, only CMTM3 is silenced or(More)
The CKLF-like MARVEL transmembrane domain containing 3 (CMTM3) gene is a novel tumor suppressor with frequent epigenetic inactivation. In this study, we showed the role played by CMTM3 in gastric cancer cells as a tumor suppressor gene, and examined the correlation between CMTM3 expression and clinicopathological parameters using immunohistochemistry in(More)
A comparative genomic microarray comprising 2,457 genes from two whole genomes of S. aureus was employed for the comparative genome hybridization analysis of 50 strains of divergent clonal lineages, including methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA), methicillin-susceptible S. aureus (MSSA), and swine strains in China. Large-scale validation was confirmed via(More)
Progesterone receptors (PR) are ligand-activated transcription factors that modulate transcription by activating genes. There are two isoforms of PR, PRA and PRB. In most cell contexts, the PRA isoform is a repressor of the PRB isoform. Without hormone induction, PRA is mostly located in the nucleus whereas PRB distributes both in the nucleus and in the(More)
