The single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the promoter region of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) genes may influence tumor occurrence and progression via modifying mRNA transcription and protein expression. The study aims to explore the association of the SNPs in MMP-1, 3 and MMP-9 promoters with susceptibility to adult brain astrocytoma in northern(More)
In the field, asynchrony of flowering and silk for male and female plants always occurs under different abiotic stresses, and reduces yield in the seed industry. Under stress conditions, a female parent with a short duration of silk emergence and a long time of silk receptivity can decrease the risk of the asynchrony for flowering and silking in the process(More)
To study the association between the A to G transition at the -181-bp position in the promoter of matrix metalloproteinase-7 gene (MMP-7-181A/G) and susceptibility to adult astrocytoma, the MMP-7-181A/G polymorphism was genotyped by PCR-RFLP analysis among 221 adult astrocytoma patients and 366 healthy controls in a population of northern China. The result(More)
In this study, we describe a novel ecological self-incompatibility (SI) line HE97 in maize. The main environmental factors influencing the inbred line characteristics were identified through field sowing trials during a two-year study period (2001 and 2002). The results showed that daily minimum temperature had the greatest effect on floral morphology and(More)
Understanding the mechanism of arsenic (As) accumulation in plants is important in reducing As's toxicity to plants and its potential risks to human health. Here, we performed a genome-wide association study to dissect the genetic basis of the As contents of different maize tissues in Xixian, which was irrigated with As-rich surface water, and Changge using(More)
