Immature embryos have been used frequently as target tissues in the genetical transformation of wheat. However, obtaining a large number of high quality immature embryos throughout the year is a laborious and delicate process, because of the need to cultivate the plants under controlled conditions. To circumvent this, we have employed mature embryos rather(More)
This review focuses on phage display and its application in vaccine design. Four kinds of phage display systems and their characteristics are highlighted. Whole phage particles can be used to deliver vaccines by fusing immunogenic peptides to modified coat proteins (phage-display vaccination), or by incorporating a eukaryotic promoter-driven vaccine gene(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate and analyze the risk factors for burning mouth syndrome (BMS). METHODS Eighty-seven consecutive patients with BMS and a randomly selected control group (n = 82) were comprehensively investigated with a self-designed questionnaire, Self-rating Anxiety Scale (SAS) and Self-rating Depression Scale (SDS). A complete blood count and serum(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the presence of hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), hepatitis B core antigen (HBcAg), and hepatitis B virus (HBV) DNA in parotid tissues from patients with positive serum HBV markers. METHODS HBsAg and HBcAg were examined in parotid biopsy tissues from patients with suspected parotid tumor and positive serum HBV markers by(More)
Solid neuroendocrine breast carcinoma (solid NEBC) is a relatively uncommon malignant tumor of the breast. The purpose of our study was to explore the incidence and clinical features of this tumor, and to evaluate the efficacy of adjuvant chemotherapy and endocrine therapy for patients with solid NEBC. Of 7542 breast cancers registered during the period(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the presence of hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), hepatitis B core antigen (HBcAg), and hepatitis B virus (HBV) covalently closed circular DNA (cccDNA) in renal tissues from patients with HBV-related glomerulonephritis. METHODS Renal tissue biopsies taken from patients with HBV-related glomerulonephritis and two control groups were(More)
To evaluate oxidative stress and the plant antioxidant system of Alternanthera philoxeroides [Mart.] Griseb and Oryza sativa L. in the response to drought, root and leaf tissues of drought-treated A. philoxeroides and O. sativa were collected and relative water content, stomatal conductance, the concentrations of malondialdehyde, proline and the activities(More)
Alternanthera philoxeroides is one of the rather few amphibious plants that can normally grow in both water and upland conditions. Adventitious roots of Alternanthera philoxeroides seedlings will grow long, thick, fleshy during drought stress, which are assumed to improve performance of the plant by more efficient storage and extraction of water from deep(More)
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) integration into a Burkitt's lymphoma (BL) cell line (Raji) was investigated, using polymerase chain reaction (PCR), Southern hybridization, genomic library screening and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH). BaMHIW fragments of the EBV genome and DNA sequences of the viral latent membrane protein (LMP)1 and LMP2 genes were(More)
Apoptosis of virus infected cells can restrict or dampen full blown virus propagation and this can serve as a protective mechanism against virus infection. Consequently, viruses can also delay programmed cell death by enhancing the expression of anti-apoptotic proteins. Human Bcl-2 is expressed on the surface of the mitochondrial membrane and functions as(More)
