The alleviation of zinc toxicity by silicon is related to zinc transport and antioxidative reactions in rice
The objective of this study is to elucidate the roles of silicon (Si) in enhancing tolerance to excess zinc (Zn) in two contrasting rice (Oryza sativa L.) cultivars: i.e. cv. TY-167 (Zn-resistant)Expand
The Effect of Silicon on Photosynthesis and Expression of Its Relevant Genes in Rice (Oryza sativa L.) under High-Zinc Stress
It is concluded that Si alleviates the Zn-induced damage to photosynthesis in rice, and Si activated and regulated some photosynthesis-related genes in response to high-Zn stress, consequently increasing photosynthesis. Expand
Silicon ameliorates manganese toxicity by regulating manganese transport and antioxidant reactions in rice (Oryza sativa L.)
Background and aimsThis study aimed to investigate the roles of silicon (Si) in ameliorating manganese (Mn) toxicity in two rice (Oryza sativa L.) cultivars: i.e. cv. Xinxiangyou 640 (XXY), aExpand
Tuber indicum shapes the microbial communities of ectomycorhizosphere soil and ectomycorrhizae of an indigenous tree (Pinus armandii)
The interactive network that exists among ectomycorrhizal fungi, soil properties and microbial communities associated with the host plant is illustrated and furthers the understanding of the ecology and cultivation of T. indicum. Expand
Influenza Morbidity and Mortality in Elderly Patients Receiving Statins: A Cohort Study
Statin use is associated with a statistically significant but minimal protective effect against influenza morbidity that can easily be attributed to residual confounding and public health officials and clinicians should focus on other measures to reduce morbidity and mortality from the next influenza pandemic.

Microbial Community in High Arsenic Shallow Groundwater Aquifers in Hetao Basin of Inner Mongolia, China
Biota-environment matching and co-inertia analyses showed that arsenic, total organic carbon, SO4 2-,SO4 2-/total sulfur ratio, and Fe2+ were important environmental factors shaping the observed microbial communities. Expand
Association Study Confirmed Susceptibility Loci with Keloid in the Chinese Han Population
This study confirmed two previously reported loci 1q41 and 15q21.3 for keloid in the Chinese Han population, which suggested the common genetic factor predisposing to the development of keloids shared by the ChineseHan and Japanese populations. Expand
Efficacy and Safety of Tangshen Formula on Patients with Type 2 Diabetic Kidney Disease: A Multicenter Double-Blinded Randomized Placebo-Controlled Trial
Based on conventional treatments, TSF appears to provide additional benefits compared with placebo in decreasing proteinuria and improving eGFR in DKD patients with macroalbuminuria, Nevertheless, further study is needed to evaluate TSF treating patients with micro Albuminuria. Expand
Analyses of GATA4, NKX2.5, and TFAP2B genes in subjects from southern China with sporadic congenital heart disease.
The results suggest that genomic GATA4 and TFAP2B missense mutations may be associated with nonfamilial congenital heart disease with diverse clinical phenotypes in patients with congenitalHeart disease from southern China. Expand
Clinical characteristics of immunoglobulin G4-related disease: a prospective study of 118 Chinese patients.
IgG4-RD is a systemic inflammatory and sclerosing disease that shows favourable responses to treatment with glucocorticoids and immunosuppressive agents, and the majority usually improved within 3 months. Expand
