Spermatogenesis is a complex biological process that requires precise regulation of gene expression in the germ cells and their surrounding somatic cells. Some testis-specific genes are involved in different stages of spermatogenesis; however, the precise mechanisms of stage-specific spermatogenesis are still not elucidated. In this study, we first examined(More)
This meta-analysis aimed to systematically collect the current evidence regarding the efficacy and safety of dexmedetomidine (DEX) as an anesthetic adjuvant for patients undergoing intracranial surgery. A systematic literature search of randomized controlled trials (RCT) was conducted to compare DEX with placebo or opioids in patients undergoing(More)
The human rDNA tandem repeat consists of 13.3 kb of transcribed sequence and about 30 kb of intergenic spacer of unknown function. For descriptive purposes, it is convenient to divide the ribosomal repeat into 4 EcoRI fragments, AD. The C fragment contains only intergenic spacer sequences, and ends some 500 bp upstream of the ribosomal RNA promoter. We had(More)
The Pico Mountain Observatory, located at 2225 m a.s.l. in the Azores Islands, was established in 2001 to observe long-range transport from North America to the central North Atlantic. In previous research conducted at the observatory, ozone enhancement (> 55 ppbv) in North American outflows was observed, and efficient ozone production in these outflows was(More)
Objective: The study aimed to investigate whether sample sizes of F-wave study differed according to different nerves, different F-wave parameters, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis(ALS) patients or healthy subjects. Methods: The F-waves in the median, ulnar, tibial, and deep peroneal nerves of 55 amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) patients and 52 healthy(More)
Objective: To analyze the correlation between white matter integrity and spatial navigation impairment in patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Methods: A total of 27 MCI subjects and 24 healthy controls were enrolled from the Affiliated Drum Tower Hospital of Nanjing University Medical School from May 2015 to February 2016, who underwent 3.0 T MRI(More)
Objective: To analyze age-related change in cerebral matter tract, especially fractional anisotropy, based on automating fiber-tract quantification(AFQ). Methods: A total of 64 years old normal persons and 43 young volunteers were enrolled respectively from the Affiliated Drum Tower Hospital of Nanjing University Medical School and community from January(More)
In situ measurements of carbon monoxide (CO) and ozone (O 3) at the Pico Mountain Observatory (PMO) located in the Azores, Portugal, are analyzed together with results from an atmospheric chemical transport model (GEOS-Chem) and satellite remote sensing data (AIRS (Atmospheric Infrared Sounder) for CO, and TES (Tropospheric Emission Spectrometer) for O 3)(More)
