AIMS We aimed to replicate the association of the rs290487 (IVS3C/T) and rs7903146 (IVS3C/T) polymorphisms of transcription factor 7-like 2 (TCF7L2) and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in Han Chinese people in Henan province, China. METHODS In all, 1,842 patients with T2DM and 7,777 normal glucose-tolerant controls underwent genotyping for the(More)
Associations between transcription factor 7-like 2 (TCF7L2) polymorphisms and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) have been evaluated extensively in multiple ethnic groups. TCF7L2 has emerged as the strongest T2DM susceptibility gene in Europeans, but the findings have been inconsistent in the Chinese population. The purpose of this meta-analysis was to(More)
Phytoremediation is an emerging strategy for the removal of heavy metal contaminants. However, one of the prerequisite is to understand adequately plant resistant mechanisms. The present study was performed to assess the role of endogenous SA in plant response to Pb or Cd using wild-type (wt) Arabidopsis and its SA-accumulating mutant snc1, SA-reducing(More)
OBJECTIVE To clarify the association of rs11196218 polymorphism in transcription factor 7-like 2 (TCF7L2) and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in Asian population by a case-control study and meta-analysis. METHODS In the case-control study, 1842 patients with T2DM and 7777 normal glucose-tolerant controls in the Henan province of China were genotyped for(More)
Egg-laying duck flocks in Guangdong province, southern China, have been suffering a widely spreading infectious disease with abrupt egg drops and death since the winter of 2010. However, the causative pathogen was not known. We obtained two independent virus isolates named FS and JM from the diseased layer duck flocks and identified them as duck-origin(More)
Our objective was to evaluate the association of rs12255372 in the TCF7L2 gene with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in the world population. We carried out a survey of the literature about the effect of rs12255372 on genetic susceptibility to T2DM by consulting PubMed, the Cochrane Library, and Embase from 2006 to 2012, and then performed a meta-analysis of(More)
Lipopolysaccharides (LPS) from the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria serve as endotoxin to exert potent immune responses. However, the effect of LPS on adipogenesis has not been elucidated. The present study was designed to examine the effect of LPS on adipogenesis in 3T3-L1 preadipocytes and possible mechanism(s) of action involved. Our results(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS This study was designed to explore the relationship between periodontitis and diabetes mellitus (DM) in Uygur adults from Xinjiang. METHODS AND RESULTS Data were obtained using questionnaire and oral examination. Participants (48.87 ± 13.72 yr) were categorized into periodontitis and non-periodontitis groups in accordance with the(More)
Riemerella anatipestifer is a pathogenic bacterium that has spread all over the world and is associated with epizootic infections in waterfowl and other avian species. R. anatipestifer RA-SG is an avirulent strain, isolated from an infected duck in Guangdong province, China. The genome sequence of this species is presented herein.
This work described a continuous method to synthesize CdTe/CdS/ZnS core/shell/shell quantum dots. In an integrated system by flawlessly combining the chemical aerosol flow system working at high temperature (200–300°C) to generate CdTe/CdS intermediate products and an additional heat-up setup at relatively low temperature to overcoat the ZnS shells, the(More)
