A set of 120 simple sequence repeats (SSRs) was developed from the newly assembled pear sequence and evaluated for polymorphisms in seven genotypes of pear from different genetic backgrounds. Of these, 67 (55.8 %) primer pairs produced polymorphic amplifications. Together, the 67 SSRs detected 277 alleles with an average of 4.13 per locus. Sequencing of the(More)
BACKGROUND Previous surveys on depression in China focused on prevalence estimates without providing a detailed epidemiological profile. METHOD Face-to-face household interviews were conducted with a multi-stage household probability sample of 2633 adults (age > or = 18 years) in Beijing and 2568 in Shanghai between November 2001 and February 2002. The(More)
Cyclin-dependent protein kinase 5 (Cdk5) depends on the association with neuronal Cdk5 activator (Nck5a) for kinase activity. A variety of cellular proteins have been shown to undergo high affinity association with Nck5a, including three novel proteins, C42, C48, and C53 found by a yeast two-hybrid screen (Ching, Y. P., Qi, Z., and Wang, J. H. (2000) Gene(More)
Outer hair cells are the mechanical effectors of the cochlear amplifier, an active process that improves the sensitivity and frequency discrimination of the mammalian ear. In vivo, the gain of the cochlear amplifier is regulated by the efferent neurotransmitter acetylcholine through the modulation of outer hair cell motility. Little is known, however,(More)
Dicer is crucial for the maturation of microRNAs (miRNAs) and its dysregulation may contribute to tumor initiation and progression. The study explored the clinical implications of Dicer and its post-transcriptional regulation by microRNAs in cervical cancer. qRT-PCR and immunohistochemistry investigated Dicer mRNA and protein levels in cervical cancer(More)
On September 14, 2015 at 09:50:45 UTC the two detectors of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) simultaneously observed the binary black hole merger GW150914. We report the results of a matched-filter search using relativistic models of compact-object binaries that recovered GW150914 as the most significant event during the(More)
In this paper, the images of sliced sections or CT sections of the specimen of teeth, jaw and prosthesis were processed by a computer image analysing system, and the plane shape of the 3-D objects of interest on the sections was converted into digital images using a special software module for contour analysing. Then the images were adjusted in scale,(More)
