MC4R belongs to a seven-transmembrane G-protein-coupled receptor which may regulate body composition and insulin action. Many mutations in the MC4R gene are associated with obesity, energy expenditure and serum triglyceride levels in human and animals. Six mutations in the MC4R gene were identified in our study (-293C>G, -193A>T, -192T>G, -129A>G, -84T>C(More)
The cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI) has been widely accepted as a good indicator of arteriosclerosis. However, the lack of a reliable diagnostic criterion for CAVI hampers the proper clinical screening for arteriosclerosis using CAVI and impedes the prompt treatment of cardiovascular disease (CVD). There is an urgent need to determine a criterion for(More)
Although previous reports have linked DNA damage with both transmissions across generations as well as our own survival, it is unknown how to reverse the lesion. Based on the data from a Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo Controlled Clinical Trial, this study aimed to assess the efficacy of folic acid supplementation (FAS) on DNA oxidative damage reversal.In(More)

Significant progress was achieved in the search of a thrombin receptor antagonist as a novel antithrombotic treatment since the thrombin receptor (protease-activated receptor-1, PAR-1) was cloned 20 years ago. Previous works have shown that it is possible to develop potent thrombin receptor antagonists to compete effectively with the receptor’s internal(More)
A portable and antibody-free sandwich assay was fabricated for determination of chloramphenicol (CAP) in animal-derived food by a personal glucose meter (PGM). The sandwich-type strategy was developed on the basis of magnetic molecularly imprinted probe (m-MIP) nanoparticles and a β-cyclodextrin/invertase-functionalized signal tag. Firstly, the m-MIPs were(More)
As the typical CDMA application, the spread spectrum PRN codes in GPS are C/A code applied to standard positioning service and P code applied to precise positioning service presently. P code has a higher tolerance to jamming and spoofing compared with the C/A code, C/A code has short length and low data rate, and is vulnerable to interference and spoofing,(More)
