China is the world’s leading producer of potatoes, growing 22% of all potatoes. Production continues to rise, owing to increases in both land devoted to potato production and yield per hectare. Most potato production occurs in the northern and southwest regions of the country. The processing of coarse starch is the most important component of the potato(More)
Our previous study has demonstrated that thymic stromal lymphopoietin (TSLP) stimulates trophoblast proliferation and invasion, suggesting TSLP plays an important role in the placentation in early human pregnancy, but the intracellular molecular mechanism is currently unknown. The present study is undertaken to investigate whether the STAT3-c-Myc signaling(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Although low-level laser therapy (LLLT) has been demonstrated to have a biomodulatory effect on periodontal tissue, no systematic review has exclusively addressed its effectiveness as an adjunct to non-surgical periodontal treatment. This study aimed to evaluate whether an additional benefit exists for the application of LLLT(More)
Bacterial wilt (BW) caused by Ralstonia solanacearum (Rs) is an important quarantine disease that spreads worldwide and infects hundreds of plant species. The BW defense response of potato is a complicated continuous process, which involves transcription of a battery of genes. The molecular mechanisms of potato-Rs interactions are poorly understood. In this(More)
Methods Reconstituted human gingival epithelia (RHGE) were challenged with two isoforms of PgLPS together with E. coli LPS as the positive control. mRNA and proteins were harvested from tissues and culture supernatants were collected. Expression of pro-inflammatory and antiinflammatory cytokines was evaluated by Q-PCR and ELISA. Involvement of pattern(More)
