Powdery mildew is a severe foliar disease for wheat and could cause great yield loss in epidemic years. To explore new powdery mildew resistance genes, two einkorn accessions including TA2033 and M80, both resistant to this disease, were studied for the inheritance of resistance. Each accession possessed a single but different dominant resistance gene that(More)
Anterior approach was extensively used in surgical treatment of multilevel cervical spondylotic myelopathy. Following anterior decompression, many different reconstructive techniques (multilevel ACDF, hybrid construct and long corpectomy) all had satisfied outcomes. However, there are few studies focusing on the comparison of these three reconstructed(More)
miR-182 is one of the most significantly up-regulated miRNAs in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Metastasis suppressor 1 (MTSS1), one target gene of miR-182, plays an important role in the metastasis of cancers. However, it remains unclear what role does function and mechanism of miR-182 and MTSS1play in HCC. miR-182 expression was tested in 86 cases of(More)
STUDY DESIGN Original article. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study is to analyze the primary efficacy and safety of a new zero-profile implant named Zero-P in anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) in Chinese population. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA ACDF has become the preferred treatment for single-level or multilevel cervical degenerative disk(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare the clinical outcomes and radiological changes of 3- and 4-level anterior cervical diskectomy and fusion with stand-alone anchored spacers and with traditional anterior plates. A total of 51 consecutive patients with cervical spondylotic myelopathy who underwent 3- or 4-level anterior cervical diskectomy and fusion(More)
PURPOSE To elucidate the phenotypic and biochemical characteristics of a novel mutation associated with autosomal dominant cone-rod dystrophy (adCORD). METHODS Twenty-three family members of a CORD pedigree underwent clinical examinations, including visual acuity tests, standardized full-field ERG, and fundus photography. Genomic DNA was screened for(More)
Embryogenic calli of Festuca arundinacea were transformed with the Agrobacterium tumefaciens isopentenyl transferase (ipt) gene driven by a maize ubiquitin promoter. Tillering ability, levels of chlorophyll a and b, and cold tolerance were greatly increased in the transgenic turfgrass, which resulted in the plants remaining more vigorous and staying green(More)
BACKGROUND CONTEXT The cervical disc arthroplasty has emerged as a promising alternative to the anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) in patients with radiculopathy or myelopathy with disc degeneration disease. The advantages of this technique have been reported to preserve the cervical mobility and possibly reduce the adjacent segment(More)
Triticum monococcum accession TA2026 showed resistance to wheat powdery mildew. To identify the resistance gene and transfer it to common wheat, genetic analysis and molecular mapping were conducted using an F2 population and derived F3 families from the cross of TA2026 × M389. The results indicated that TA2026 possessed a recessive powdery mildew(More)
BACKGROUND C5 palsy is a serious but poorly understood complication after posterior cervical decompression that could lead to muscle weakness, brachialgia and numbness of the upper limbs. The incidence of C5 palsy varies greatly between studies. The risk factors are inconclusive and even conflicting. OBJECT To perform a systematic review on the incidence(More)
