Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are a class of new allotrope of carbon. Different functionalized CNTs may vary from their physical and chemical properties to the biological property. In this study, the toxicity of water-soluble taurine multi-walled CNTs (tau-MWNTs), raw MWNTs and positive control crystalline silicon dioxide particles on mouse lungs via(More)
The present experiment was conducted to determine the digestible energy (DE), metabolizable energy (ME) content, and the apparent total tract digestibility (ATTD) of energy in growing pigs fed diets containing one of ten cottonseed meals (CSM) collected from different provinces of China and to develop in vitro prediction equations for DE and ME content from(More)
B-cell CLL/lymphoma 9 protein (BCL-9), a multi-functional co-factor in Wnt signaling, induced carcinogenesis as well as promoting tumor progression, metastasis and chemo-resistance in colorectal cancer (CRC). However, the mechanisms for increased BCL-9 expression in CRC were not well understood. Here, we report that hypoxia, a hallmark of solid tumors,(More)
The purpose of our study was to assess drinking status in middle school students and to understand the associated factors. The adjusted drinking rates were 50.9%, 39.8%, and 15.1% for lifetime, past-year, and current drinking, respectively. Multivariable logistic regression revealed the following variables positively related to drinking during the past(More)
This study evaluates the relationship between the genotype and milk protein components in goats. Milk samples were collected from cloned goats and normal white goats during different postpartum (or abortion) phases. Two cloned goats, originated from the same somatic line of goat mammary gland epithelial cells, and three sexually reproduced normal white(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was designed to evaluate the prevalence of thyroid nodules (TNs) and its relationship with urine iodine concentrations (UICs) after the regional rapid economic growth and lifestyle changes. METHODS A cross-sectional survey was conducted in the general population aged 15-69 years. A questionnaire regarding general and personal(More)
Two experiments were conducted to determine the digestibility of crude protein (CP), amino acids and energy in three Chinese corn distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS), one rice DDGS, one American corn DDGS and one American high protein distillers dried grains (HP-DDG). In Exp. 1, the apparent ileal digestibility (AID) and standardized ileal(More)
PURPOSE To raise operative successful rate of complicated retinal detachment, we used the methods of vitrectomy combined with scleral buckling for the treatment of complicated retinal detachment. METHODS The operative methods included: scleral buckling, vitrectomy, membrane peeling, intraocular and extraocular drainage, gas and silicone oil tamponade. (More)
BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE Increasing dietary diversity is concurrent with an increasing prevalence of adiposity in China, but the association between these variables remains ambiguous. This study reveals an association between dietary diversity and body mass (underweight, overweight and obesity) in Chinese adults. SUBJECTS/METHODS Data from 17 825 participants(More)
