The indica variety Dular has a high level of resistance to rice stripe virus (RSV). We performed quantitative trait locus (QTL) analysis for RSV resistance using 226 F2 clonal lines at the seedling stage derived from a cross between the susceptible japonica variety Balilla and the resistant indica variety Dular with two evaluation criteria, infection rate(More)
Annonaceous acetogenins have potent antitumor effect in vitro and in vivo. Squamocin is one of the annonaceous acetogenins and has been reported to have antiproliferative effect on cancer cells. Our results from this study showed that squamocin inhibited proliferation of HL-60 cells with IC50 value of 0.17 microg/ml and induced apoptosis of HL-60 cells.(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the changes in expression of the ACE2/Ang(1-7)/Mas receptor axis' components that occur during progression of liver fibrosis using a rat model system. METHODS Thirty-six adult male Wistar rats, were randomly assigned to groups of normal control (n = 6; no manipulation) and liver fibrosis (n = 30; given a subcutaneous injection of(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the differential diagnosis of scrotal mass with color Doppler ultrasound. METHODS Retrospective analysis was made of 21 cases of scrotal mass confirmed both surgically and pathologically in our hospital. RESULTS Eight of the total number were malignancy of the testis origin, accounting for 38.1% of whole study group and 13 were(More)
The aim of the present study was to examine and assess contrast-enhanced ultrasound in the early diagnosis of acute radiation-induced liver injury in a rat model. Sixty female rats were used, with 50 rats being utilized to produce an animal model of liver injury with a single dose of stereotactic X-ray irradiation of 20 Gy. Ten rats from the injury group(More)
