This study was undertaken to determine the clonality of lymphomatoid papulosis (LyP), its clonal relationship to lymphomas, which occur at high frequency in LyP patients, and to define the cell lineage of Reed-Sternberg-like cells in type A lesions of LyP. Punch biopsies of skin of 11 adult patients with LyP were analyzed for morphologic subtype of LyP,(More)
The AIM2 (absent in melanoma 2) protein promotes host defenses against invading viruses and pathogenic bacteria through corresponding adapter molecules leading to the initiation of innate immune responses. We investigated the expression of AIM2 in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) from patients with acute hepatitis B (AHB) and chronic hepatitis B(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the expressions of the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and its receptor fms-like tyrosine kinase-1 (Flt-1) in the testis, epididymis and epididymal sperm of adolescent rats and explore the functions of both the proteins in the male reproductive system. METHODS The expressions of VEGF and Flt-1 were detected in 20 adolescent SD(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aimed to investigate the clinical virological characteristics of hepatitis B virus (HBV) in chronic HBV infection patients of different ages, especially in relapse patients and patients with immune clearance. METHODS The HBV clinical virological characteristics of chronic HBV infection were investigated in 1572 Chinese patients of(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the characteristics and distribution of GATA-4 in the testis of male mice. METHODS Paraffin sections were obtained from the testes of 24 male B6SJLF1/J mice, aged 0 day (n = 6), 2 weeks (n = 6), 4 weeks (n = 6) and 6 weeks (n = 6), and the expressions of GATA-4 in the testis were observed by the immunohistochemical ABC method and DAB(More)
The GATA family proteins are a group of zinc finger transcription factors that are expressed in human and mammalian animals and play an important role in mammalian organ morphogenesis, cell proliferation and sex differentiation. GATA-4 and GATA-6 have been identified in the ovaries and testes of humans, mice, pigs and chickens. GATA-4 contributes to fetal(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of experimental left varicocele (ELV) on the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and its receptor fms-like tyrosine kinase-1 (Flt-1) proteins in the testis and epididymis of adolescent rats, and to find out the correlation of the two proteins with varicocele-induced male infertility. METHODS We established the(More)
