Aluminium (Al) toxicity is one of the major limiting factors for barley production on acid soils. It inhibits root cell division and elongation, thus reducing water and nutrient uptake, consequently resulting in poor plant growth and yield. Plants tolerate Al either through external resistance mechanisms, by which Al is excluded from plant tissues or(More)
MicroRNAs have been demonstrated to have a role in susceptibility and prognosis of various types of human cancer. We investigated the association between polymorphisms in miR-146aG>C, miR-196a2C>T, and miR-499A>G and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) risk and interaction with HCC and hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection. Two hundred sixty-six cases with HCC and(More)
A rapid and high efficient working system for gene-targeting vector construction was developed by using Red/ET recombination. Mediated by Red/ET recombination, the objective genomic DNA was first subcloned into the targeting vector. After insertion of a PCR amplified selectable marker gene flanked with short homology arms into the targeted position, a(More)
Red/ET recombination, a powerful homologous recombination system based on the Red operon of lambda phage or RecE/ RecT from Rac phage, provides an innovative approach for DNA engineering. Deletion, insertion and mutation can be quickly and precisely performed on the target gene mediated by Red/ET recombination with PCR derived DNA fragments or(More)
PURPOSE Volume-controlled ventilation (VCV) has been the traditional mechanical ventilation mode in laparoscopic surgery. Pressure-controlled ventilation (PCV) has been used more frequently in recent years, especially for patients with complicated conditions; however, evidence on whether PCV is superior to VCV is still lacking. A meta-analysis was used to(More)
Acinetobacter junii YB was found to exhibit efficient heterotrophic nitrification and aerobic denitrification ability, with the maximum ammonium, nitrite and nitrate removal rate of 8.82, 8.45 and 7.98 mg/L/h, respectively. Meanwhile, ammonium was found to be removed preferentially in the process of simultaneous nitrification and denitrification in mixed(More)
AIM Associations between polymorphisms in miR-146aG>C, miR-196a2C>T and miR-499A>G and risk of HCC, and interaction with HBV infection in a Chinese population, were the target of the present research. METHODS The duplex polymerase-chain-reaction with confronting-two-pair primers (PCR-RFLP) was performed to determine the genotypes of the miR-146aG>C,(More)
BACKGROUND We analysed and compared the aquaporin 8 (AQP8) expression in ascending and descending colon mucosa between patients with diarrhoea-predominant irritable bowel syndrome (D-IBS) and healthy volunteers, in order to study the relationship between the clinical feature of IBS, the expression of AQP8 and the pathological mechanism of D-IBS. METHODS(More)
Steroid receptor coactivator-3 (SRC-3) is a transcriptional coactivator that plays an important role in the regulation of cytokine mRNA translation. In the present study, SCR-3 gene knockout mice were used to study the effects of SCR-3 on the regulation of the inflammatory response in peritoneal macrophages induced by lipopolysaccharides (LPS). Peritoneal(More)
