Dark green islands (DGIs) are a common symptom of plants systemically infected with the mosaic virus. DGIs are clusters of green leaf cells that are free of virus but surrounded by yellow leaf tissue that is full of virus particles. In Cucumber mosaic virus (CMV)-infected Nicotiana tabacum leaves, the respiration and photosynthesis capabilities of DGIs and(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) play an important role in the regulation of many fundamental biological processes in eukaryotes; however, miRNAs associated with immune functions in the common carp have not been reported. In this study, a small-RNA cDNA library was constructed from the spleen of the common carp. A total of 10,603,456 high-quality clean reads,(More)
Clear-cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) is an aggressive and malignant kidney cancer which has the worst prognosis. Although microRNAs (miRNAs) have recently been identified as a novel class of regulators in oncogenesis and metastasis, there are few studies on their participation in ccRCC. In the present study, we observed that miR-367 expression was(More)
The effects of the novel GH-releasing hexapeptide, Hexarelin, on the secretion of GH in cultured human pituitary somatotrophinomas was further investigated. Hexarelin (20 nmol / L) strongly stimulated GH secretion, which could be reduced by phloretin, but not by RP-cAMPS, an inhibitor of protein kinase A(PKA). (Ac-Tyrl,D-Arg2)-GRF(l-29)-NH2 failed to block(More)
By using the method of clonal analysis the evidence to prove that Hemophagocytic syndrome (HPS) is reactive or malignant was investigated to probe into the pathogenesis of HPS and its relations with clinical prognosis. The macrophages abnormally proliferated in bone marrow were isolated. Electrophoresis analysis was made after DNA extraction, enzyme(More)
Growth hormone releasing peptide (GHRP-2) is a synthetic hexapeptide which specifically stimulates secretion of growth hormone (GH) by fetal pituitary somatotrophs through a new membrane receptor, which is different from growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) and somatostatin (SMS) receptors. We used cell cultures of human fetal pituitary somatotroph cells(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the best individualized renal biopsy strategies for Chinese patients with suspected kidney cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS From June 2009 to Oct 2010, 100 core biopsy and fine needle aspirations(FNA) have been performed to patients (average age: 62.0 ± 14.2 years) with an indeterminate solid renal mass by computed tomography (CT) scan(More)
