Since their arrival in the Tibetan Plateau during the Neolithic Age, Tibetans have been well-adapted to extreme environmental conditions and possess genetic variation that reflect their living environment and migratory history. To investigate the origin of Tibetans and the genetic basis of adaptation in a rigorous environment, we genotyped 30 Tibetan(More)
Large yellow croaker (Larimichthys crocea) is an important economic fish in China and Eastern Asia. Because of the exhaustive fishing and overdense aquaculture, the wild population and the mariculture of the species are facing serious challenges on germplasm degeneration and susceptibility to infectious disease agents. However, a comprehensive transcriptome(More)
Methamphetamine-induced caries (MIC) is the rampant caries often found in methamphetamine (MA) users and is often called "meth mouth". It leads to devastating effects on dentition and is the major reason that brings patients to professional help. Dental management of these patients is challenging and the most important factor is cessation of MA use.(More)
Large yellow croaker, one of the most important economic marine fish in China, is mainly distributed in coastal regions of East Asia. Its wild stocks have been collapsed due to overfishing and habitat degradation. However, genetic analysis of the species for population conservation and molecular-aided selection has been largely hindered by insufficient(More)
BACKGROUND The utility of circulating Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) DNA as a tumor marker for nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) detection suggests that it might improve the diagnostic performance of anti-EBV antibody markers in NPC screening. In this study, the authors evaluated whether circulating EBV DNA load is capable of distinguishing NPC patients from(More)
The genetic map of a species is essential for its whole genome assembly and can be applied to the mapping of important traits. In this study, we performed RNA-seq for a family of large yellow croakers (Larimichthys crocea) and constructed a high-density genetic map. In this map, 24 linkage groups comprised 3,448 polymorphic SNP markers. Approximately 72.4%(More)
In this work, a photoelectrochemical (PEC) method was introduced into a microfluidic paper-based analytical device (μ-PAD), and thus, a truly low-cost, simple, portable, and disposable microfluidic PEC origami device (μ-PECOD) with an internal chemiluminescence light source and external digital multimeter (DMM) was demonstrated. The PEC responses of this(More)
In this study, electrochemical immunoassay was introduced into the recently proposed microfluidic paper-based analytical device (μPADs). To improve the performance of electrochemical immunoassay on μPAD for point-of-care testing (POCT), a novel wax-patterned microfluidic paper-based three-dimensional electrochemical device (3D-μPED) was demonstrated based(More)
The large yellow croaker (Larimichthys crocea) is an economically important marine fish cultured in China and East Asian countries and is facing a serious threat from Cryptocaryon irritans, which is a protozoan ectoparasite that infects most reared marine fish species. To understand the molecular immune mechanisms underlying the response to C. irritans, we(More)
