1442 ablation of diploid ovular cells, the central cell, the egg cell, or both the central and egg cell simultaneously did not affect the ability of the embryo sac to attract pollen tubes. However, ablation of both synergid cells did abolish the competence of the embryo sac to attract pollen tubes; elimination of a single synergid cell weakened the(More)
BACKGROUND Transient global cerebral ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) is a major perioperative complication, and diabetes increases the response of oxidative stress and inflammation induced by I/R. The objective of this study was to determine the protective effect of dexmedetomidine against transient global cerebral ischemia/reperfusion induced oxidative stress(More)
Image segmentation is often required as a preliminary and indispensable stage in the computer aided medical image process, particularly during the clinical analysis of magnetic resonance (MR) brain image. Fuzzy c-means (FCM) clustering algorithm has been widely used in many medical image segmentations. However, the conventionally standard FCM algorithm is(More)
Many web applications adopt AJAX to enhance their user experience. But AJAX has a number of properties making it extremely difficult for traditional search engines to crawl. Google's AJAX crawling scheme suggests webmasters change their website architectures and add additional codes. It is so complicated that it be currently supported only by Google. The(More)
A new plasma membrane Na(+)/H(+) antiporter gene (named as KvSOS1) was cloned from the halophyte Kosteletzkya virginica by reverse-transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and rapid amplification of cDNA ends (RACE) technology, which is a homologue of SOS1 (salt overly sensitive 1). The full-length cDNA is 3850 bp and contains an open reading frame(More)
BACKGROUND There are several treatment approaches for pineal region meningiomas, such as Poppen's approach, Krause's approach and combinations of the two approaches. We present our experience with the use of 3D-computed tomography angiography for planning the surgical removal of pineal region meningiomas using a suboccipital transtentorial approach(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the relationship between serum uric acid (SUA) and metabolic syndrome (MS) in men, premenopausal women and postmenopausal women. METHODS A cross-sectional study was conducted in 1,834 community-based Southern Chinese participants from June to October 2012. Sex-specific SUA quartiles were used as follows: <345, 345-<400, 400-<468, ≥(More)
We report a case of successful endovascular treatment of bilateral carotid artery occlusion with concurrent basilar apex aneurysm. An elderly female patient with subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) onset was admitted to the hospital. Computed tomography (CT) and digital subtraction angiography (DSA) confirmed the presence of bilateral carotid artery occlusion(More)
The purpose of the study was to explore the association between metabolic syndrome (MetS) and chronic kidney disease (CKD) in perimenopausal women. A cross-sectional study was conducted in Zhuhai from June to October 2012. Perimenopausal women (n = 685) were included in the study. All participants were divided into three subgroups: Group 1, 40 years old ≤(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the relationship between the HW phenotype and risk for CKD in a community population aged 40 years and older. METHODS A cross-sectional study was conducted in Zhuhai from June to October 2012. The participants were divided into three groups: Group 1, Waist circumference >90 cm in men or >85 cm in women and triglycerides ≥2 mmol/l;(More)
