about medical residency in Japan and introduced us to the relevant medical literature. Abstract. In an attempt to increase the placement of medical residents in rural hospitals , the Japanese government recently introduced " regional caps " which restrict the total number of residents matched within each region of the country. To accommodate regional caps,(More)
The aim of the study was to demonstrate the influence of target gene and amplification product length on the performance of fetal gender determination systems using maternal plasma. A total of 40 pairs of plasma DNA samples from pregnant women and genomic DNA samples from maternal blood, amniotic fluid and paternal blood were isolated for gender(More)
Age, gender, diet, gene and lifestyle have been reported to affect metabolic status and disease susceptibility through epigenetic pathway. But it remains indistinct that which factors account for certain epigenetic modifications. Our aim was to identify the influencing factors on inter-individual DNA methylation variations of carbohydrate response element(More)
BACKGROUND Obesity causes severe healthcare problem worldwide leading to numerous diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases and diabetes mellitus. Previous Genome-Wide Association Study (GWAS) identified an association between a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs7138803, on chromosome 12q13 and obesity in European Caucasians. Since the genetic(More)
Tumor-derived exosomes are important for cell-cell communication. However, the role of TP53 in the control of exosome production in colorectal cancer (CRC) is controversial and unclear. The features of exosomes secreted from HCT116 TP53-wild type (WT), TP53-knockout (KO) and constructed TP53 (R273H)-mutant (MT) cells were assessed. The exosomes from the MT(More)
Dipicolinic acid was investigated as a new anchoring group for DSSCs. A pilot dye (PD2) bearing this new anchoring group was found to adsorb significantly stronger to TiO2 than its cyanoacrylic acid analogue. The electrolyte composition was found to have a strong effect on the photoelectrochemical properties of the adsorbed dye in the device, allowing the(More)
Protein phosphatase 2 regulatory subunit B, alpha (PPP2R3A), a regulatory subunit of protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A), is a major serine/threonine phosphatase that regulates crucial function in development and growth. Previous research has implied that PPP2R3A was involved in heart failure, and PR130, the largest transcription of PPP2R3A, functioning in the(More)
Wind turbine blade is the key component of wind power system. Curing is one of the important processes in its production of large-scale composite wind turbine blade. Mold heating system of circulating water affects the quality of resin curing and the productive efficiency of turbine blade directly. The heat transfer model of heating system for 1.2 MW wind(More)
Glutathione S-transferase T1 and M1 (GSTT1 and GSTM1) have been reported to be associated with Parkinson's disease (PD). However, the results of these previous studies were inconsistent. The reported studies were conducted from 1990 to 2014 by searching PubMed. The total Odds Ratio and 95 % Confidence Interval were calculated and analyzed by Review Manager(More)
