Adipocyte size and number are correlated with fat deposition, which is of major concern to human health and pork producers. To identify quantitative trait loci (QTL) for adipocyte size and number in pigs, a total of 341 F2 animals at 240 days in a White Duroc × Erhualian cross were measured for the area, perimeters, volume and number of adipocyte in(More)
Muscle fibre traits are related with meat quality in meat animals. In this study, a whole-genome scan with 183 microsatellite markers covering the pig genome was performed to identify quantitative trait loci (QTL) for cross-sectional area, numerical percentage and relative area of type I, IIA and IIB myofibres, fibre number per square centimetre and total(More)
Background:We previously reported that magnetic resonance imaging evidence of cranial nerve invasion was an unfavourable prognostic factor in nasopharyngeal carcinoma. However, the prognostic value of this evidence in nasopharyngeal carcinoma treated with intensity-modulated radiotherapy remains unknown.Methods:We retrospectively analysed 749 nasopharyngeal(More)
Background:To compare the imaging and clinical features of temporal lobe necrosis (TLN) in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) patients treated with two-dimensional radiotherapy (2D-RT) or those with intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT).Methods:We retrospectively analysed NPC patients who underwent 2D-RT (72 patients, 128 temporal lobes) or IMRT (36 patients,(More)
