Fumonisin B1 contamination of home-grown corn in high-risk areas for esophageal and liver cancer in China
The high contamination rates ofFB1 found in food samples in Huaian and Fusui, along with previous reports, suggest a possible contributing role of FB1 in human esophageal- and hepato-carcinogenesis. Expand
Lycopene inhibits the growth of human androgen-independent prostate cancer cells in vitro and in BALB/c nude mice.
Results suggest that lycopene may specifically inhibit the growth of androgen-independent prostate cancers. Expand
Etiological study of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma in an endemic region: a population-based case control study in Huaian, China
Consuming acrid food, fatty meat, moldy food, salted and pickled vegetables, eating fast, introverted personality, passive smoking, a family history of cancer, esophageal lesion, and infection with Helicobacter pylori were significant risk factors for ESCC. Expand
Modulation of aflatoxin biomarkers in human blood and urine by green tea polyphenols intervention.
It is demonstrated that GTPs effectively modulate AFB(1) metabolism and metabolic activation and the reduction in AFB-AA levels over time was dose and time dependent. Expand
Phase IIa chemoprevention trial of green tea polyphenols in high-risk individuals of liver cancer: modulation of urinary excretion of green tea polyphenols and 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine.
The results suggest that urinary excretions of EGC and EC can serve as practical biomarkers for green tea consumption in human populations and suggest that chemoprevention with GTP is effective in diminishing oxidative DNA damage. Expand
Allelic Combinations of Soybean Maturity Loci E1, E2, E3 and E4 Result in Diversity of Maturity and Adaptation to Different Latitudes
The genetic mechanisms underlying photoperiod sensitivity and adaptation in wild soybean seemed unique from those in cultivated soybean and the allelic combinations and functional molecular markers for the four E loci will significantly assist molecular breeding towards high productivity. Expand

Transgenic alfalfa plants generated in this study could be used for farming in salt-affected as well as arid and semi-arid areas and showed that overexpression of GsZFP1 in al falfa resulted in enhanced salt tolerance. Expand
Chemical composition of fog water in Nanjing area of China and its related fog microphysics
Abstract Fog samples were collected at Pancheng in the Nanjing area of China during December 2006 and December 2007. Fog droplet spectra, surface meteorological elements and visibility were alsoExpand
Comparative acute and combinative toxicity of aflatoxin B1 and T‐2 toxin in animals and immortalized human cell lines
The results of this study demonstrate that these two toxins interacted to produce alterations in the toxic responses generally classifiable as additive; however, a synergistic interaction was noted in the case of BEAS‐2B. Expand
Integrative Toxicopathological Evaluation of Aflatoxin B1 Exposure in F344 Rats
It is demonstrated that liver GST-P+ cells and foci are sensitive biomarkers for AFB1 toxic effect and correlated with bile duct proliferation and biochemical alterations in F344 rats. Expand
