MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of 21–24 nucleotide non-coding RNAs that down-regulate gene expression by cleaving or inhibiting the translation of target gene transcripts. miRNAs have been extensively analyzed in a few model plant species such as Arabidopsis, rice and Populus, and partially investigated in other non-model plant species. However, only a few(More)
INTRODUCTION Whole lung lavage is the most effective method to treat pulmonary alveolar proteinosis (PAP), and most potential complications occur often during the lavage process, but few happen after lavage. Theoretically, pulmonary edema would be more common after whole lung lavage. However, no such case was reported in the literature. CASE DESCRIPTION A(More)
Silicate (Si) can enhance plant resistance or tolerance to the toxicity of heavy metals. However, it remains unclear whether Si can ameliorate lead (Pb) toxicity in banana (Musa xparadisiaca) roots. In this study, treatment with 800 mg kg−1 Pb decreased both the shoot and root weight of banana seedlings. The amendment of 800 mg kg−1 Si (sodium metasilicate,(More)
BACKGROUND To explore the pathological changes of three-dimension structure of ventricular myocardial fibers after anterior myocardial infarction in dog heart. METHODS Fourteen acute anterior myocardial infarction models were made from healthy dogs (mean weight 17.6 ± 2.5 kg). Six out of 14 dogs with old myocardial infarction were sacrificed, and their(More)
