BACKGROUND Mink enteritis virus (MEV) causes a highly contagious viral disease of mink with a worldwide distribution. MEV has a linear, single-stranded, negative-sense DNA with a genome length of approximately 5,000 bp. The VP2 protein is the major structural protein of the parvovirus encoded by the vp2 gene. VP2 is highly antigenic and plays important(More)
Congenital heart disease (CHD) is the most common birth defect in humans. Genetic causes for CHD remain largely unknown. T-box transcription factor 18 (TBX18) gene is expressed in the developing heart, including myocardium of the left ventricle and interventricular septum. Epicardial cells expressing TBX18 gene contribute to the cardiac fibroblast and(More)
BACKGROUND Soybean is a short-day crop of agricultural, ecological, and economic importance. The sensitive photoperiod responses significantly limit its breeding and adaptation. GmFT2a, a putative florigen gene with different transcription profiles in two cultivars (late-maturing Zigongdongdou and early-maturing Heihe 27) with different maturity profiles,(More)
BACKGROUND More and more surgeons and patients focus on the minimally invasive surgical techniques in the 21st century. Totally thoracoscopic operation provides another minimal invasive surgical option for patients with ASD (atrial septal defect). In this study, we reported our experience of 61 patients with atrial septal defect who underwent totally(More)
Congenital heart disease (CHD) is the most common birth defects in humans. The genetic causes for CHD remain largely unknown. T-box transcription factor 1 (TBX1), a dosage-sensitive regulator, plays a critical role in the heart development. Mutations in the coding regions of TBX1 gene have been associated to 22q11 deletion syndrome with cardiac defects and(More)
Catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) is a common nosocomial device-associated infection. It is now recognized that the high infection rates were caused by the formation of biofilm on the surface of the catheters that decreases the susceptibility to antibiotics and results in anti-microbial resistance. In this study, we performed an in vitro(More)
