The genetic diversity of symbiotic cyanobacteria in coralloid roots of cycads was examined using PCR fingerprinting with primers derived from repetitive sequences. The highest genetic resolution was achieved using the primer corresponding to the short tandemly repeated repetitive sequences. The cyanobacteria were collected from the coralloid roots of a(More)
Cyanobacteria are one of the main components of the microbiota in rice paddy fields and significantly contribute to its fertilization. The diversity and changes of the cyanobacterial assemblage were investigated during a rice growth season and after harvest in a paddy field located in Fujian Province, China. The cyanobacterial populations were analyzed by a(More)
OBJECTIVE To discuss the experience of combining extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) with intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) for the treatment of acute heart failure in critically ill adults. METHODS The clinical data of 54 patients who received ECMO combined with IABP due to acute heart failure between January 2008 and July 2012 were(More)
The outbreak of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) has been a big problem of swine industry in China in recent years. In this study, we investigated molecular diversity, phylogenetic relationships, and protein characterization of Fujian field samples with other PEDV reference strains. Sequence analysis of the S1 and sM genes showed that each sample had(More)
Twenty-seven field samples that showed positive in PEDV detection were collected from different farms of Fujian province from 2010 to 2012. Their heterogeneity was investigated by analysis of the ORF3 gene because of its potential function as a representation of virulence. According to the results, six Fujian strains in Group 1 showed a different genotype(More)
Intervertebral disc (IVD) disease, the most common cause of disc failure and low back pain, is characterized by age-related changes in the adult disc. In this study we aimed to analyze the potential of thalidomide for the treatment of IVD disease, through identifying and explaining its anti-inflammatory and anti-catabolic activity in both in vitro IVD cell(More)
The management of patients with neuropathic pain is challenging. Monotherapy with a single pain relief drug may encounter different difficulties, such as short duration of efficacy and hence too many times of drug administration, and inadequate drug delivery. Recently, nanocarrier-based drug delivery systems have been proved to provide promising strategies(More)
Thalidomide was introduced to the market in 1957 as a sedative and antiemetic agent, and returned to the market for the treatment of myelodysplastic syndrome and multiple myeloma. There are reports and studies of thalidomide as an analgesic or analgesic adjuvant in clinic. However, the underlying mechanism is quite elusive. Many studies suggest that the(More)
miR-148b has been found to be aberrantly expressed in various tumor types. It has recently been reported to be involved in regulating radioresistance in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cells. However, its expression level and association with radiosensitivity in human patient samples have not been investigated. Real-time PCR was used to evaluate the(More)
The rostral ventromedial medulla (RVM) is highly involved in pain signal transmissions. Previous studies have shown that thalidomide is anti-nociceptive. Thus, we evaluated the neurobiological mechanisms of thalidomide in the RVM in the regulation of postoperative pain. We used a rat model of postoperative pain to investigate the effects of intra-RVM(More)
