OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effectiveness of a school-based smoking prevention and control intervention program among elementary school students. METHODS Through two phase cluster sampling, 566 pupils in grade 4 and grade 5 of two schools were assigned to intervention group and control group. One year comprehensive smoking intervention was conducted in the(More)
UNLABELLED Abstract Objectives. Several lines of evidence have shown that both RELN mRNA and protein are possibly down-regulated in the brain of schizophrenia patients. Recent association studies in European populations suggested RELN as a risk gene for schizophrenia. In this study, we test if RELN contributes to the risk of schizophrenia in Chinese(More)
Schizophrenia is a common and complex psychiatric disorder. Significant evidence has suggested that genetic factors play pivotal roles in the etiology of schizophrenia. More than 100 schizophrenia candidate genes have been reported; however, many of them do not have satisfactory replications among different populations. Among these genes, RELN is thought to(More)
Previous research on gene expression analysis and association tests have suggested that RELN is a risk gene for schizophrenia in world populations. Based on the reported down-regulation of RELN in schizophrenia patients compared with normal subjects, we speculated that variants in the RELN promoter region may confer risk for schizophrenia. In this study, we(More)
Efficient stomatal opening requires activation of KAT-type K(+) channels, which mediate K(+) influx into guard cells. Most KAT-type channels are functionally facilitated by extracellular acidification. However, despite sequence and structural homologies, the maize counterpart of Arabidopsis KAT1 (ZmK2.1) is resistant to pH activation. To understand the(More)
Ammonium is the main inorganic nitrogen source in paddy soil. Rice (Oryza sativa), an ammonium-preferring and -tolerant grain crop, is a valuable resource for researching ammonium-uptake mechanism and understanding the molecular networks that the plant copes with ammonium variation. To generate a broad survey of early responses affected by varied ammonium(More)
OBJECTIVE To appraise the effectiveness of a school-based smoking control program and explore the effective smoking prevention and control intervention model in middle schools. METHODS Through two phase cluster sampling, students in grade 1 and grade 2 of two schools were assigned to intervention group and control group. Comprehensive smoking intervention(More)
