OBJECTIVE The aims of the present study were to assess whether the glutathione S-transferase T1 (GSTT1), M1 (GSTM1), and NAD(P)H: quinone oxidoreductase 1 (NQO1) genotypes are associated with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2 DM) and to ascertain whether the levels of blood lipids given exposure to diabetes are modified by the specific genetic polymorphisms of(More)
In an attempt to examine the role of an ACE gene insertion/deletion (I/D) polymorphism in type 2 diabetes, we conducted a case-control association study among 132 couple-pairs from northern China. The genotype frequencies for II, ID, and DD were 39.8, 39.8, and 20.3%, respectively, in the case group and 44.8, 44.8, and 10.4% in the control group. The DD(More)
Thirty-three rhizobial strains isolated from the root nodules of Astragalus luteolus and Astragalus ernestii growing on the west plateau at two different altitudes in Sichuan province, China, were characterized by amplified rDNA restriction analysis (ARDRA), amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP), and by sequencing of rrs, glnA, glnII and nifH. The(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the relationships of Met416Val and XbaI polymorphism of muscle glycogen synthase (GYS1) gene and Trg64Arg variant of the beta(3)-adrenergic-receptor (beta(3)-AR) gene with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) and its intermediate phenotypes in the Chinese population. METHODS Polymerase chain reaction-oligonucleotide ligation assay and(More)
Our previous published data indicated that the two rhizobial strains SCAU7(T) and SCAU27, which were isolated from the root nodules of Astragalus luteolus and Astragalus ernestii respectively, in Sichuan Province, China, might be novel species of the genus Mesorhizobium. Their exact taxonomic position was determined in the present study by using polyphasic(More)
