Defects in early meiotic events are thought to play a critical role in male infertility; however, little is known regarding the relationship between early meiotic events and the chromosomal… Expand
High Classification Accuracy for Schizophrenia with Rest and Task fMRI Data
We present a novel method to extract classification features from functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data collected at rest or during the performance of a task. By combining a two-level… Expand
A comparison of sperm aneuploidy rates between infertile men with normal and abnormal karyotypes.
BACKGROUND Abnormal semen parameters in chromosomally normal men are an indicator of an increased risk of sperm aneuploidy. Male carriers of chromosomal rearrangements may also display an increase in… Expand
Dynamic changes of spatial functional network connectivity in healthy individuals and schizophrenia patients using independent vector analysis
We extract time-varying components from healthy controls and patients with schizophrenia to represent brain networks using independent vector analysis, which is an extension of ICA to multiple data sets and enables one to capture spatial variations. Expand
Antibacterial activity and cytotoxicity of two novel cross-linking antibacterial monomers on oral pathogens.
OBJECTIVES The antibacterial activity and cytotoxicity of two novel cross-linking antibacterial monomers, 2-methacryloxylethyl dodecyl methyl ammonium bromide (MAE-DB) and 2-methacryloxylethyl… Expand
An association between sex chromosomal aneuploidy in sperm and an abortus with 45,X of paternal origin: possible transmission of chromosomal abnormalities through ICSI.
BACKGROUND Although it has been speculated that the increased de-novo chromosomal abnormalities in ICSI pregnancies may be associated with an increase of aneuploidy in sperm from infertile men,… Expand

- 13 August 2017
Background Diabetic cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a major threat for diabetic patients. Silent information regulator 1 (SIRT1) has a regulatory effect on mitochondrial dynamics, which is associated with… Expand
Silencing of unpaired meiotic chromosomes and altered recombination patterns in an azoospermic carrier of a t(8;13) reciprocal translocation.
BACKGROUND Male carriers of structural chromosomal abnormalities provide a useful model for studying the effects of impaired synapsis on human meioses and male fertility. METHODS We used… Expand
DNA methylation at H19/IGF2 ICR1 in the placenta of pregnancies conceived by in vitro fertilization and intracytoplasmic sperm injection.
DNA methylation at H19 ICR1 was investigated in the placenta from pregnancies conceived by in vitro fertilization, intracytoplasmic sperm injection, and from natural conception. Our results showed… Expand
