Resequencing of 31 wild and cultivated soybean genomes identifies patterns of genetic diversity and selection
We report a large-scale analysis of the patterns of genome-wide genetic variation in soybeans. We re-sequenced a total of 17 wild and 14 cultivated soybean genomes to an average of approximately ×5… Expand
Characterization and development of EST-derived SSR markers in cultivated sweetpotato (Ipomoea batatas)
BackgroundCurrently there exists a limited availability of genetic marker resources in sweetpotato (Ipomoea batatas), which is hindering genetic research in this species. It is necessary to develop… Expand
Killing by Bactericidal Antibiotics Does Not Depend on Reactive Oxygen Species
addition of the same doses of thiourea that were used in antibiotic studies (fig. S5D); this effect cannot be due to hydroxyl-radical scavenging activity. Thus, it is plausible that fluorescein-based… Expand
Transcatheter device closure of perimembranous ventricular septal defects: mid-term outcomes
Aims The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of transcatheter closure for perimembranous ventricular septal defect (pmVSD) and its long-term results. The most common congenital… Expand

BACKGROUND Common genetic variants in immune and inflammatory response genes can affect the risk of developing oral cancer. Interleukin-10 (IL-10) is an immunosuppressive cytokine which may… Expand
A MALAT1/HIF-2α feedback loop contributes to arsenite carcinogenesis
Arsenic is well established as a human carcinogen, but the molecular mechanisms leading to arsenic-induced carcinogenesis are complex and elusive. It is also not known if lncRNAs are involved in… Expand
A genome-wide association study identifies common variants influencing serum uric acid concentrations in a Chinese population
BackgroundUric acid (UA) is a complex phenotype influenced by both genetic and environmental factors as well as their interactions. Current genome-wide association studies (GWASs) have identified a… Expand
Clinicopathological characteristics of patients with synchronous primary endometrial and ovarian cancers: A review of 43 cases.
Synchronous primary endometrial and ovarian cancers are uncommon. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinicopathological characteristics, treatment and prognosis of synchronous primary… Expand
Ketamine in adults: what emergency physicians need to know about patient selection and emergence reactions.
Transcatheter closure of congenital perimembranous ventricular septal defect in children using symmetric occluders: an 8-year multiinstitutional experience.
BACKGROUND Perimembranous ventricular septal defects (pmVSDs) are one of the most common forms of congenital cardiac malformation in children. Results of transcatheter pmVSD closure remain debatable,… Expand
