Capillary electrophoresis-based molecular genotyping was conducted on 35 sugarcane cultivars (Saccharum spp. hybrids) and 5 clones of related wild species with 20 polymorphic SSR DNA markers. A total of 251 alleles were identified with 248 alleles displaying varying degrees of polymorphism and the remaining three alleles being monomorphic. The total number(More)
Nanometer-scale patterning of TiN films grown on SiO2 /Si(001) has been demonstrated using the local electric-field-induced oxidation process with a conductive-probe atomic force microscope. The chemical composition of the modified TiN region was determined by micro-Auger electron spectroscopy and was found to consist of Ti, some trace amount of N, and O,(More)
We have developed a rapid method to molecularly distinguish different types of Hb H disease. The study depended on (a) most of the Hb H disease in Taiwan having anα-thalassemia-1 of the Southeast Asia type (-SEA) in one allele and (b) the differences of X box ofα-globin gene cluster in the other allele. To detect the -SEA allele, we utilized the primers(More)
To study abnormalities of the FHIT gene in human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), eight liver cancer cell lines, 18 matched tumorous and non-tumorous tissues from patients with HCC and three normal liver tissues were analysed by microsatellite polymorphism analysis and reverse transcription of FHIT mRNA followed by polymerase chain reaction (PCR)(More)
Objective The aim of the current study was to investigate the psychosocial impact of dental aesthetics among patients who received anterior implant-supported prostheses.Methods The current study is a cross-sectional evaluation involving 115 individuals who had gone through treatment at the dental clinics of general hospitals. Participants completed the(More)
