A novel facultatively anaerobic bacterium, designated strain LAM0A28T, was isolated from a saline silt sample collected from the Chinese Sea of Death located in Suining city, Sichuan province, China. Cells of strain LAM0A28T were observed to be Gram-stain positive, motile, endospore-forming and straight-rod shaped. Strain LAM0A28T was found to be able to(More)
A Gram-stain positive, non-motile, non-sporogenous, aerobic, rod-shaped and halophilic bacterium, designated LAM0015T, was isolated from a saline sediment sample collected from Yantai City in China. The isolate was found to be able to grow at NaCl concentrations of 5–25 % (w/v) (optimum: 7–12 %), 15–45 °C (optimum: 35 °C) and pH 5.0–9.0 (optimum: 7.0). The(More)
The central afferent projections of the superior and recurrent laryngeal nerves were investigated in the rat, utilizing the transganglionic transport of WGA-HRP. Labelled superior laryngeal nerve terminal fields were found bilaterally in the interstitial and medial subnuclei of the nucleus tractus solitarii with the ipsilateral being more dense. The(More)
To facilitate identification of rhesus cytomegalovirus (RhCMV)-infected cells, a recombinant virus expressing enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP), designated RhCMV-EGFP, was constructed. An expression cassette for EGFP under the control of the simian virus 40 (SV40) early promoter was inserted into the intergenic region between unique short 1 (US1)(More)
Congenital human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) infection has long been recognized as a threat to the developing fetus, even though studies have shown that only a subset of congenital infections results in clinical signs of disease. Among the estimated 8000 children who develop sequelae from congenital CMV infection each year in the United States alone, most suffer(More)
To determine the longitudinal effects of prenatal exposure to toluene in rats, dams received daily gavage doses of toluene diluted in corn oil on Days 6 through 19 of gestation, whereas control dams received corn oil. Litters were evaluated either on Gestational Day 19, Postnatal Day 10, or Postnatal Day 21; morphometric analysis of brain and measurements(More)
Toluene inhalant abuse during pregnancy may result in growth-retarded microcephalic newborns who subsequently demonstrate developmental impairment. By using a rat model of toluene-abuse embryopathy, we studied the effects of prenatal toluene exposure on the generation and migration of cortical neurons. Dams were exposed by gavage to either corn oil or(More)
Aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) is a potent immunosuppressive agent in endotherms, which can be related to the up-regulated apoptosis of immune organs. In this study, we investigated the roles of the mitochondrial, death receptor, and endoplasmic reticulum pathways in Aflatoxin B1 induced thymocytes apoptosis. Chickens were fed an aflatoxin B1 containing diet (0.6(More)
A previously unreported example of perineuronal satellitosis in the medial CA1 and adjacent subiculum in the human hippocampal formation is described. This phenomenon is characterized by a clustering of glial cells in relation to the perikarya of a subpopulation of neurons in the deep pyramidal layer and around most neurons scattered in the stratum oriens(More)
BACKGROUND During the past 2 decades, there has been a rapid proliferation of "health examination center (HEC)" across China. The effects of their services on public's health have not been systemically investigated. This study aimed to assess the impact of periodic health examination (PHE) at HEC on surgical treatment for uterine fibroids in Beijing(More)
