OBJECTIVE To determine the expression patterns of phosphoglycerate dehydrogenase (PHGDH) and serum squamous cell carcinoma antigen (SCC-Ag) in cervical cancer andtheir clinical significance and to explore their relationship with clinicopathological parameters. METHODS The expression of PHGDH was detected in 75 cervical cancer tissues and 21 normal(More)
The mature fruit skin of ‘Dangshansuli’ pear (Pyrus bretchnederi Rehd.) is yellow-green, but the fruit of the mutant, ‘Xiusu’, is russetted. To understand the mechanism of russet formation, the suppression subtractive hybridization libraries were used to screen for differentially expressed genes between the wild type pear and the mutant. Three hundred and(More)
Hookworm infection is a major parasitic cause of morbidity in the developing nations of the tropics. Development of a genetically engineered vaccine would be a useful tool in the control of this infection in highly endemic areas. Recombinant polypeptides belonging to the Ancylostoma secreted protein (ASP)-1 family have shown promise for reducing hookworm(More)

Browning disorder, which usually occurs post-harvest in pears subjected to long-term storage, can cause browning of the pear flesh and/or core. In 2011, investigators in China found a novel type of brown spot (designated as surface brown spot, SBS) in pre-harvest 'Dangshansuli' pears (Pyrus bretschneideri Rehd.). SBS has a large impact on the exterior(More)
