Distal 5q-trisomy has been reported in less than 30 patients, with craniosynostosis present in five. We report two new patients with distal 5q-trisomy craniosynostosis. Patient 1 had mild Kleeblattschädel with synostosis of multiple sutures together with wide and medially deviated thumbs and halluces, indicative of Pfeiffer syndrome. Cytogenetic and CGH(More)
Duplications of 4q31-qter have been rarely documented; moreover, triplications at this chromosomal region have never been described. Here we report a family through two generations (mother and three sons) with triplication of 4q32.1-q32.2. Their characteristic features include: macrocephaly, a long midface, hypoplastic zygoma, wide nasal bridge, short nose,(More)
Rice blast caused by Magnaporthe oryzae is one of the most devastating rice diseases worldwide. To understand the genetic diversity of indica landrace accessions and identify simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers that are associated with blast resistance, a population of 276 indica landraces from across the world was constructed. This population was then(More)
Objective: To investigate the survival rate, function outcomes, and complications after using unicondylar osteoarticular allografts with or without prosthesis to reconstruct the knee joint for tumors located in distal femoral or proximal tibial uni-condyle. Methods: Twenty-two patients who underwent unicondylar osteoarticular allografts with or without(More)
Interstitial deletions involving 6q11-q14 have been reported in less than 20 patients, with the breakpoints studied by G-banding alone. We report on seven patients with 6q11-q14 interstitial deletions of variable size. The breakpoints were studied by G-banding, dual-color BAC-FISH and SNP array. The results showed the molecular breakpoints differed(More)
Bodao, a japonica landrace from the Taihu Lake region of China, is highly resistant to most Chinese isolates of Magnaporthe oryzea, a form of rice blast. To effectively dissect the influence of genetics on this blast resistance, a population of 155 recombinant inbred lines (F2:8) derived from a cross of Bodao x Suyunuo was inoculated with 12 blast isolates.(More)
