Although genetic diversity has a cardinal role in domestication, abundant natural allelic variations across the rice genome that cause agronomically important differences between diverse varieties have not been fully explored. Here we implement an approach integrating genome-wide association testing with functional analysis on grain size in a diverse rice(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine therapeutic effects and systemic toxicity of 212Pb-trastuzumab in an orthotopic model of human prostate cancer cells in nude mice. TCMC-Trastuzumab was radiolabeled with 212Pb. The 212Pb-trastuzumab generated from the procedure was intact and had high binding affinity with a(More)
The study aimed to investigate prevalence, awareness, treatment and control of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), and to explore potential risk factors in rural areas of China. A total of 16413 individuals aged 18-74 years in rural districts were recruited from the Rural Diabetes, Obesity and Lifestyle (RuralDiab) study for the epidemiological research.(More)
— To date, only Linux-/UNIX-based hosts have been participants in the Grid vision for seamless data access, because the necessary Grid data access protocols have not been implemented on Windows. As part of our larger effort at the University of Virginia to make the Windows platform a first-class participant in all aspects of Grids, this paper describes our(More)
Various stable circular RNAs (circRNAs) are newly identified to be the abundance of noncoding RNAs in Archaea, Caenorhabditis elegans, mice, and humans through high-throughput deep sequencing coupled with analysis of massive transcriptional data. CircRNAs play important roles in miRNA function and transcriptional controlling by acting as competing(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM This study sought to investigate the effects of hypothermia induced by adenosine 5'-monophosphate (5'-AMP) on L-arginine (L-Arg)-induced acute pancreatitis in rats. METHODS The rats were divided into four groups: the control group, the acute pancreatitis group, the 5'-AMP pretreatment group, and the 5'-AMP posttreatment group. Rats in(More)
Cytochrome P450 1B1 (CYP1B1) is a key P450 enzyme involved in the metabolism of exogenous and endogenous substrates in endocrine-mediated tumors such as prostate cancer. The potential significance of nonsynonymous SNP Leu432Val (rs1056836) as a risk factor in prostate cancer has been extensively studied. The objective of this meta-analysis was to(More)
One of the guiding principles of the grid is local (site) autonomy. Resource owners maintain control over their resources even when those resources are part of a larger grid. In other words, resource sharing in grids must be subject to the policies of the (local) resource owners. To date, not enough attention has been paid to describing, manipulating or(More)
OBJECTIVE Previous studies on the association between vitamin D binding protein (DBP) polymorphisms and the risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) have produced conflicting results. The purpose of this meta-analysis was to examine whether DBP polymorphisms are associated with the risk of T2DM. DESIGN Systematic review and meta-analysis. METHODS All(More)
While several epidemiological studies have investigated the association between vitamin C and risk of esophageal cancer, the results remain inconsistent. In the present study, a meta-analysis was conducted to assess the impact of dietary vitamin C intake on esophageal cancer risk. Online databases were searched up to March 29, 2015, for studies on the(More)
