Arabinogalactan proteins (AGPs), are a group of highly glycosylated proteins that are found throughout the plant kingdom. To date, glycosyltransferases that glycosylate AGP backbone have remained largely unknown. In this study, a gene (GhGalT1) encoding a putative β-1,3-galactosyltransferase (GalT) was identified in cotton. GhGalT1, belonging to CAZy GT31(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the results of emergency endovascular repair of complicated Stanford type B aortic dissections within 24 hours of symptom onset. METHODS A retrospective analysis of the clinical data of 30 patients with complicated Stanford type B aortic dissections who underwent emergency endovascular repair between June 2007 and October 2008.(More)
BACKGROUND Rapid reexpansion of collapsed lungs leads to reexpansion pulmonary edema (RPE). We aimed to investigate the effect of melatonin in the prevention of RPE formation. METHODS We used a Wistar rat model in which the left lung was collapsed by ligating the left bronchus for 48 hours and then reexpanded and ventilated for an additional 2 hours.(More)
BACKGROUND Venous thromboembolism (VTE) remained common complication following surgical resection of esophageal cancer. In this prospective randomized double-blind placebo-controlled trial (NCT01267305), we aim to compare the safety and efficacy between low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) once-daily (QD) and twice-daily (BID) for the prophylaxis of VTE(More)
INTRODUCTION Acute inhalational exposure leads to rapidly progressive acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). This report is the first one to present a patient with ARDS in relation to long-standing exposure to a high-concentration mixture of ethenone and crotonaldehyde. CASE REPORT A male worker in a chemical plant was accidentally exposed to the(More)
intRoduction Acute appendicitis is one of the most common surgical diseases in the general population, but it rarely happens after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). The impaired immune function in these patients usually predisposes them to a delay in diagnosis owing to an atypical presentation, which might increase complications including death. It is(More)
