TaLEA (Tamarix androssowii late embryogenesis abundant gene, DQ663481) gene was introduced into Populus simonii × Populus nigra by Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated transformation with the aim of improving salt-tolerance. Among the 15 transgenic lines, one showed a dwarf phenotype (dwf1). Under the same growth conditions, dwf1 height was significantly… (More)
A dwarf mutant (dwf1) was obtained among 15 transgenic lines, when TaLEA (Tamarix androssowii late embryogenesis abundant gene) was introduced into Populus simonii × Populus nigra by Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated transformation. Under the same growth conditions, dwf1 height was significantly reduced compared with the wild type and the other transgenic… (More)
Myopericytoma is a newly proposed subgroup of perivascular tumors in the World Health Organization classification of soft tissue tumors. In this study, we report a case of a benign myopericytoma with detailed multidetector CT (MDCT) findings in the parotid gland, a location that has not been described for this type of tumor previously. The clinical… (More)
Ectopia of the pancreatic tissue is a developmental anomaly found in ~2% of all autopsies, and 70~90% of these anomalies are located in the gastrointestinal tract. Mediastinal localization of an ectopic pancreas is extremely rare. Herein, we report two cases with mediastinal ectopic pancreas clarified by pathology and shown by thoracic contrast‑enhanced… (More)
An efficient image encryption scheme is designed based on 2D hyper-chaotic system. Different from the traditional chaos-based image encryption schemes, the confusion and the diffusion procedures of the proposed scheme are interacted on each other. In the encryption process, the position of the present pixel is influenced by the last diffused one. Then the… (More)
Pollen tubes are an ideal model for the study of cell growth and morphogenesis because of their extreme elongation without cell division; however, the genetic basis of pollen germination and tube growth remains largely unknown. Using the Illumina/Solexa digital gene expression system, we identified 13,017 genes (representing 28.3% of the unigenes on the… (More)

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a common psychiatric disease following exposure to a severe traumatic event or physiological stress, yet the precise mechanisms underlying PTSD remains largely to be determined. Using an animal model of PTSD induced by a single prolonged stress (SPS), we assessed the role of hippocampal nicotinamide adenosine… (More)
