Botryosphaeria dothidea is a pathogen that causes many important diseases of deciduous fruit trees worldwide. In this study, a double-stranded (ds) RNA of 5322 base pairs (bp) in length from strain GY25 of B. dothidea was isolated and sequenced. The dsRNA potentially contained two overlapping open reading frames (ORFs). The predicted gene product of ORF1(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the influence of the four single nucleotide polymorphisms of the insulin-degrading enzyme (IDE) gene on metabolic features in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in a Chinese population. DESIGN Prospective, case-control study. SETTING University-based hospital. PATIENT(S) Three hundred fifteen patients with PCOS and 327(More)
A novel double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) virus, designated as Botryosphaeria dothidea RNA virus 1 (BdRV1), isolated from a hypovirulent strain YZN115 of Botryosphaeria dothidea was biologically and molecularly characterized. The genome of BdRV1 comprises of five dsRNAs. Each dsRNA contains a single open reading frame. The proteins encoded by dsRNA1-4 shared(More)
We have made a biomechanical evaluation of titanium mesh with anterior plate fixation in anterior cervical decompression. Six fresh cervical spine specimens (C3-7) of young cadavers were used in the biomechanical test. Subtotal vertebrectomy was performed on C5, C5-6 and C4-6. We accomplished two constructions: (1) bone graft; (2) titanium mesh with(More)
