UNLABELLED This study aims to determine the relationship between advanced glycation end-product (AGE) accumulation in skin tissue and bone strength, assessed by quantitative ultrasound, among healthy adult Japanese men. The results of the study suggest that men with higher AGE accumulation in skin tissue have a lower osteo-sono assessment index. (More)
Bloodstream infections (BSIs) are prevalent among people living with HIV/AIDS. The etiology varies in different regions and different periods. We aimed to survey the etiological and clinical features of BSIs in HIV patients in mainland China. We assessed all HIV patients with a positive blood culture in a Chinese teaching hospital from September 2009(More)
Target of AvrB Operation (TAO1) is a TIR-NB-LRR disease resistance protein that responds to avirulence gene B (avrB). However, whether TAO1 plays a role in Arabidopsis thaliana development and/or abiotic stress is unknown. Here, we found that TAO1 expression is regulated in a tissue-specific manner, and that TAO1 protein is localized to both the plasma(More)
Pinus merkusii is an important tree native to Southeast Asia. Thirteen tetranucleotide microsatellite makers were developed from this species using a dual-suppression polymerase chain reaction technique. Of these markers, nine loci were polymorphic. The mean number of alleles per locus was 3.18 (range 2–5) and mean expected heterozygosities were 0.525(More)
