The effects of a mixture of heavy metals (Pb, Zn and Cu) on growth, radial oxygen loss (ROL) and the spatial pattern of ROL were investigated in mangrove seedlings of three species: Aegiceras corniculatum, Avicennia marina and Bruguiera gymnorrhiza. Heavy metals inhibited the growth of seedlings and led to decreased ROL and changes in the "tight" barrier(More)
OBJECTIVE Radical vaginal trachelectomy (VRT) is widely prescribed as a surgical procedure to treat early-stage cervical cancer while preserving fertility. However, the ideal obstetric standard of care for patients who have undergone VRT has not yet been established. Aim of this rerport is to analyze pregnancy outcomes and optimal obstetric management(More)
Two experiments were conducted to fit growth curves, and determine age-related changes in carcass characteristics, organs, serum biochemical parameters, and gene expression of intestinal nutrient transporters in domestic pigeon (Columba livia). In experiment 1, body weight (BW) of 30 pigeons was respectively determined at 1, 3, 7, 14, 21, 28, and 35 days(More)
Background:There are limited data comparing the prognosis and fertility outcomes of the patients with early cervical cancer treated by trans-vaginal radical trachelectomy (VRT) or abdominal radical trachelectomy (ART).The objective of this study was to compare the surgical and pathologic characteristics, the prognosis and fertility outcomes of the patients(More)
AIMS To investigate and evaluate the clinical management strategies of aggressive angiomyxoma (AA) in female genital tract and pelvis. METHODS A cohort of 13 patients with AA diagnosed and treated in Peking Union Medical College Hospital in the last 12 years was reported focusing on the results of the managements and prognosis. RESULTS The mean age at(More)
OBJECTIVES To identify key genes and novel potential therapeutic targets for contused spin cord injury through analyzing microarray data. MATERIALS AND METHODS Gene expression data set GSE2599 was downloaded from Gene Expression Omnibus, including 3 rat spinal cord injury (SCI) samples and 3 healthy controls. Data pre-treatment and differential analyses(More)
The cDNA (HED-2) encoding a 20 kDa protein found in mammalian epididymal fluid was isolated from a human testis expression library. It is composed of 1908 bp, containing a reading frame of 1479 bp, coding a polypeptide consisting of 493 amino acids, and assigned the accession number: U15158 by GenBank (Biochem. Mol. Biol. Int. 34, 1131-1136, 1994). HED-2(More)
Human activities have resulted in arsenic (As) and heavy metals accumulation in paddy soils in China. Phytoremediation has been suggested as an effective and low-cost method to clean up contaminated soils. A combined soil-sand pot experiment was conducted to investigate the influence of red mud (RM) supply on iron plaque formation and As and heavy metal(More)
Manganese (Mn) superoxide dismutase (SOD) is mainly located in mitochondrial matrix and is responsible for scavenging about 80% free radicals from oxidative and phospharylative process in mitochondria. It was reported that the insufficiency of Mn SOD expression or activity was connected to the development of neurodegenerative diseases. In this article, we(More)
