Identification of quantitative trait loci (QTL) for fiber quality traits that are stable across multiple generations and environments could facilitate marker-assisted selection for improving cotton strains. In the present study, F2, F2:3, and recombinant inbred lines (RILs, F 6:8 ) populations derived from an upland cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) cross(More)
The activated sludge process is an essential process for treating domestic and industrial wastewaters in most wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). This process consists of a mixture of general and special microorganisms in a form of a complex enrichment population. Thus, the exploration of activated sludge microbial communities is crucial to improve the(More)
We aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of fully covered esophageal stent placement for preventing esophageal strictures after endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD). Twenty-two patients with a mucosal defects that exceeded 75 % of the circumference of the esophagus after ESD treatment for superficial esophageal squamous cell carcinomas were grouped(More)
We propose a hierarchical model for the probability of dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) for combinations of doses of two therapeutic agents. We apply this model to an adaptive Bayesian trial algorithm whose goal is to identify combinations with DLT rates close to a prespecified target rate. We describe methods for generating prior distributions for the(More)
A new glutamic acid independent poly-γ-glutamic acid (γ-PGA) producing strain, which was identified as Bacillus amyloliquefaciens LL3 by analysis of 16S rDNA and gyrase subunit A gene (gyrA), was isolated from fermented food. The product had a molecular weight of 470, 801 and l-glutamate monomer content of 98.47%. The pre-optimal medium, based on(More)
BACKGROUND The Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) was developed to enable earlier detection of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) relative to familiar multi-domain tests like the Mini-Mental State Exam (MMSE). Clinicians need to better understand the relationship between MoCA and MMSE scores. METHODS For this cross-sectional study, we analyzed 219 healthy(More)
To improve cancer immunotherapy, a better understanding of the weak efficiency of tumor-infiltrating T lymphocytes (TIL) is necessary. We have analyzed the functional state of human TIL immediately after resection of three types of tumors (NSCLC, melanoma and RCC). Several signalling pathways (calcium, phosphorylation of ERK and Akt) and cytokine secretion(More)
The abundance and diversity of archaeal ammonia monooxygenase subunit A (amoA) genes from hydrothermal vent chimneys at the Juan de Fuca Ridge were investigated. The majority of the retrieved archaeal amoA sequences exhibited identities of less than 95% to those in the GenBank database. Novel ammonia-oxidizing archaea may exist in the hydrothermal vent(More)
Bacillus amyloliquefaciens is one of most prevalent Gram-positive aerobic spore-forming bacteria with the ability to synthesize polysaccharides and polypeptides. Here, we report the complete genome sequence of B. amyloliquefaciens LL3, which was isolated from fermented food and presents the glutamic acid-independent production of poly-γ-glutamic acid.
BACKGROUND Adequate compliance with the existing guidelines for cleaning and disinfection of gastrointestinal endoscopes and accessories is necessary to obtain high-level disinfection and prevent pathogen transmission. AIM To investigate cleaning and disinfection practice in China. METHODS A questionnaire with 21 questions concerning gastrointestinal(More)
