BACKGROUND Erigeron breviscapus (Vant.) Hand-Mazz. is a famous medicinal plant. Scutellarin and chlorogenic acids are the primary active components in this herb. However, the mechanisms of biosynthesis and regulation for scutellarin and chlorogenic acids in E. breviscapus are considerably unknown. In addition, genomic information of this herb is also(More)
The aim of this study was to achieve one-stage screening for trisomy 21 using a combination of nuchal translucency (NuT) measurement and maternal serum alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) and free beta-human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) biochemistry levels in the second trimester among a high-risk study population. From January 1998 to June 2001, 45 cases of trisomy(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of doxorubicin (DOX) on abcb4 gene expression and the role of abcb4 gene in multidrug-resistance. METHODS Zebrafish embryos were treated with 2 mL/L DMSO, 10 μmol/L DOX and 2 mL/L DMSO+10 μmol/L DOX, respectively. The zebrafish embryos treated with Eggwater served as controls. Exposures started at 4 to 16 cell stage of(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the mechanism of HOXC4 gene during early development in zebrafish, study it's expression in hematopoiesis system with whole mount in situ hybridization (WISH), then make a foundation work for further study of HOXC4 gene in hematopoiesis development. METHODS The total RNA of different phases of zebrafish embryos was extracted, and(More)
Alisertib (MLN8237, ALS), an Aurora kinase A (AURKA) inhibitor, exerts potent anti-tumor effects in the treatment of solid tumor and hematologic malignancies in preclinical and clinical studies. However, the fully spectrum of molecular targets of ALS and its anticancer effect in the treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) are not clear. This study aimed(More)
Hemangioblast, including primitive hematopoietic progenitor cells, play an important role in hematopoietic development, however, the underlying mechanism for the propagation of hematopoietic progenitor cells remains elusive. A variety of regulatory molecules activated in early embryonic development play a critical role in the maintenance of function of(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the expression pattern of hoxd3 gene during early embryogenesis and angiogenesis of wild-type zebrafish. METHODS Total RNA was extracted from embryos of zebrafish in different development stages by trizol. The cDNA of hoxd3 gene was amplified by RT-PCR. The RT-PCR product was ligated to pCS(2+) vector by T4 DNA ligatase polymerase(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the susceptibility of Aedes albopictus to dengue virus infection. METHODS Aedes albopictus from 15 collections in Guizhou province were challenged orally with dengue virus 1-4 types, respectively. The total RNA from mosquitos were extracted. The viral NS1 gene fragment was amplified with reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction(More)
Leukemia is a common malignancy of blood cells with poor prognosis in many patients. Aurora kinases, a family of serine/threonine kinases, play a key role in regulating cell division and mitosis and are linked to tumorigenesis, metastasis, and poor prognosis in many human cancers including leukemia and lymphoma. Danusertib (Danu) is a pan-inhibitor of(More)
