BACKGROUND Esophageal cancer (EC), an aggressive digestive tract malignancy, is one of the leading causes of cancer-related deaths worldwide. Besides environmental risk factors, genetic factors might play a key role in the EC carcinogenesis. The aim of the study is to evaluate the association of miR219-1 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) with EC. (More)
The full-genome sequence of the bluetongue virus serotype 1 (BTV-1) strain Y863, the first BTV-1 isolate of Eastern origin found in China, was determined. The virus was isolated from sheep during a severe outbreak of bluetongue in Shizhong County, Yunnan Province, southwest China, in 1979. The total size of the BTV-1 strain Y863 genome is 19,170 bp.(More)
To construct a clustered, regularly interspaced, short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)/cas9 system and use this system to obtain a recombinant Escherichia coli strain possessing the fatty acid metabolism genes from a lipid-rich marine bacterium. The fatty acid regulatory transcription factor (fadR), delta9 (Δ9 desaturase) and acetyl-CoA carboxylase (acc) genes(More)
