In Japanese, Koreans and Caucasians, narcolepsy/hypocretin deficiency is tightly associated with the DRB1*15:01-DQA1*01:02-DQB1*06:02 haplotype. Studies in African-Americans suggest a primary effect of DQB1*06:02, but this observation has been difficult to confirm in other populations because of high linkage disequilibrium between DRB1*15:01/3 and(More)
UNLABELLED Simple, efficient, and economical recombinant plant binary expression vectors for deciphering large-scale functional genomic research in plants and promoting crop improvement by genetically engineering and biotechnology is in great demand. In this research, using the pCHF3, pCAMBIA1301, pCAMBIA3300, pCAMBIA3301 vectors, we successfully(More)
One day in July 1991, 78 people became victims of accidental alimentary intoxication in a factory in Hebei Province, China. Related samples, including rodenticide bait, the artificial carbonic kidneys used for the treatment of the victims, and the victims' blood, were analyzed by GC/MS. Tetramine [80-12-6], a highly toxic rodenticide, was identified as the(More)
A 42-d experiment was conducted with 276 Arbor Acres broilers (1 d of age, weighing 41.1 ± 1.5 g) to determine the effects of Forsythia suspensa extract (FSE) and berberine (BE) on growth performance, immunity, antioxidant activities, and intestinal microbiota stocked at high stocking density (28 kg of BW/m(2) as the normal density, 46 kg of BW/m(2) as the(More)
The renin-angiotensin system (RAS) influences cancer biology and is frequently dysregulated in malignancy. However, regulation of tumor local RAS remains poorly understood. Hypoxia is a hallmark of solid tumors and affects nearly every major aspect of cancer biology. Previous studies have shown that hypoxia can regulate RAS expression in somatic tissues and(More)
Runoff was measured from seven plots with different slopes nested in Tuanshangou catchment on the Loess Plateau to study effect of slopes on runoff in relation to rainfall regimes. Based on nine years of field observation and K-mean clusters, 84 rainfall events were grouped into three rainfall regimes. Rainfall regime A is the group of events with strong(More)
Forsythia suspensa extract (FSE) has been demonstrated to attenuate physiological stress induced by high temperature or high stocking density. This experiment was conducted with 144 male Arbor Acre broilers (1-d-old, weighing 42.7 ± 1.7 g) to determine the effects of FSE on performance, nutrient digestibility, antioxidant activities, serum metabolites, and(More)
We investigated the distribution of mercury and its impacts on the renal function of the residents living in mercury-contaminated area due to gold extraction by amalgamation in some area of Shanxi, China. The results showed that mercury concentrations in contaminated air in four seasons were 79-240 ng/m(3). The mercury concentration in the river across(More)
The aim of this experiment was to examine whether a simplified mini-laparotomy technique is suitable for embryo transfer in ewes. In vitro produced blastocysts were transferred to the uterine horns of synchronous recipient ewes. Each recipient received 1 embryo by conventional laparotomy (n = 36), laparoscopy (n = 21), or by simplified mini-laparotomy (n =(More)
Epigenetic silencing of the GSTP1 gene by promoter methylation has been associated with increased risk and shortened survival in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). We therefore conducted a meta-analysis to obtain a more precise estimate of this association. By searching the Cochrane Library, CBM, EMBASE, PubMed, and the Web of Science, we(More)
