Hei Yi Zhuang is an isolated subgroup of the Zhuang minority in China. Little is known about the effects of the genetic variants on serum lipid profiles in this population. The present study was undertaken to estimate the effects of the apolipoprotein (apo) A-I gene polymorphism adjacent to the initiate transcription site (-75 bp G/A) on the serum lipid(More)
Hei Yi Zhuang is an isolated subgroup of the Zhuang minority in China. Little is known about the distribution of apolipoprotein (apo) E genetic variations and its role in lipid metabolism in this population. The present study was undertaken to compare the effect of apoE gene polymorphism on serum lipid levels between the Guangxi Hei Yi Zhuang and Han(More)
Hei Yi Zhuang is an isolated subgroup of the Zhuang minority in China. This study was designed to compare the difference in the hepatic lipase gene (LIPC) −514C/T polymorphism and its association with lipid profiles between the Guangxi Hei Yi Zhuang and Han populations. Genotyping of the LIPC −514C/T was performed in 873 subjects of Hei Yi Zhuang and 867(More)
BACKGROUND Hyperlipidemia is a risk factor for atherosclerotic events. Differences in lipid levels may exist in different races. Han is the largest group and Zhuang is the largest minority among the 56 nationalities in China. Geographically and linguistically, Zhuang can be classified into 43 ethnic subgroups, among which Hei Yi (means black worship and(More)
Fetal hemoglobin (HbF) plays a dominant role in ameliorating morbidity and mortality of hemoglobinopathies. The authors performed a replicated study following the genome-wide association study (GWAS) guidelines to identify the genetic mechanics that influence HbF. The authors recruited and phenotyped 312 unrelated β-thalassemia subjects. Single-nucleotide(More)
direct breast-feeding from the mother may benefit from placement of breast milk on the tongue or administering breast milk through the naso/orogastric route (supplemental breast milk). A Cochrane systematic review of trials comparing breast-feeding or supplemental breast milk with no treatment/other measures in neonates identified 11 eligible studies.(More)
Hb E [β26(B8)Glu→Lys]/β-thalassemia (β-thal) is a worldwide inherited disorder. We determined the phenotype of 65 unrelated Hb E/β-thal subjects and 70 healthy individuals in the Guangxi Province of the Republic of China (ROC). Single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs35959442 in HBS1L analysis was performed using the polymerase chain reaction(More)
Dianilinodithiophosphoric acid (DDA) is widely used as sulfide mineral flotation collector in China. It is necessary to investigate the biodegradability of DDA to provide the fundamental knowledge to assess the environmental fate in the risk assessment of DDA and to design and operate the DDA flotation wastewater biological treatment plant. In the present(More)
Aniline aerofloat (DDA) is a widely used material in China and has become a main pollutant in floatation wastewater. In this study, a membrane reactor (MBR) was constructed to continuously treat simulated wastewater contaminated with DDA. The study investigated the hydraulic retention time (HRT) and the impact of influent DDA concentration on MBR(More)
The prostate is composed mainly of epithelial and stromal cells, whose dynamic interaction is vital to a broad array of cellular processes, including proliferation, differentiation, growth, and apoptosis. To understand intercellular communication in the development and progression of prostatic diseases, we examined gene expression in tissues from five(More)
