Selecting rice varieties with a high nitrogen (N) use efficiency (NUE) is the best approach to reduce N fertilizer application in rice production and is one of the objectives of the Green Super Rice (GSR) Project in China. However, the performance of elite candidate GSR varieties under low N supply remains unclear. In the present study, differences in the(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate nuclear factor-kappaB/p65(NF-kappaB/p65) and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) gene expressions and clinical significance in human laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma, at the same time to investigate the relationship between the two gene expressions. METHOD Forty-one samples of laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma and ten samples of vocal cord(More)
Rice leaves display lateral asymmetry around the midrib, and the narrow side exhibits higher leaf area-based nitrogen concentration (Na) and soil plant analysis development (SPAD) values than the wider side. However, the difference in the relationship between the SPAD of each side and Na of the corresponding lateral half, and the optimal position along the(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the impacts of RelA antisense oligonucleotides on proliferation in laryngeal carcinoma Hep-2 cell. METHOD RelA antisense oligonucleotides was designed, which was transferred into laryngeal carcinoma Hep-2 cell. MTT was used to detect the growth-inhibiting ratio at different transferred timepoints. Hep-2 cell which was transferred 48 h(More)
OBJECTIVE To detect the role of the plasma endothelin in the process of Bell palsy and its relationship to prognosis. METHOD The plasma endothelin were respectively determined with radioimmunoassay in 21 patients with Bell palsy and 20 normal control subjects. RESULT The patients who were suffering from Bell palsy exhibited a statistically significant(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the effect of sodium salicylate on the nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-kappaB) protein expression in spiral ganglion cells. METHOD Forty-eight healthy guinea pigs were randomly divided into four groups: group A: the control group (0.9% sodium chloride); group B: sodium salicylate [450 mg/(kg x d)] group; group C: sodium salicylate [450 mg/(kg(More)
Contemporaneous outlier blocks (additive or reallocation) caused by special events frequently occur in repeated business time series. When the time series have strong inter-series dependence, shrinkage estimation techniques provide improved estimates of the time series model parameters and of the outlier block. A bootstrap estimate of the covariance matrix(More)
