Chicken Toll-like receptor 15 (ChTLR15) has been shown to participate in immune activation in response to various pathogens and in the innate defence against infection. Two genetically distinct Chinese breeds of chicken (Qinyuan Partridge and Baier breeds) were used to study the correlation between ChTLR15 single nucleotide polymorphisms and the natural(More)
The authors have combined corrosion of steel fittings or perforated sheets with granular activated carbon (GAC) that had been pre-treated with Fe(III)-citrate, to produce an innovative and low-maintenance technique for removing arsenic from groundwater. Removal of arsenic was measured using two GAC column configurations: rapid small scale column tests(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the effects of two phase treatment(Herbst and fixed appliance) and fixed appliance treatment only(edgewise appliance) on temporomandibular joint in Cass Ⅱ patients with mandibular retrusion using cone-beam CT(CBCT) analysis. METHODS Thirty Class Ⅱ patients with mandibular retrusion in the permanent dentition were divided into two(More)
SEF14 fimbriae are only found in some strains of serogroup-D Salmonella such as S. enteritidis, suggesting that SEF14 fimbriae may affect serovar-specific virulence traits. In this study, we found that prevalence of sefA, sefD and sefR genes in S. dublin and S. enteritidis was 100%. In 18 isolates of S. pullorum, the prevalence of sefA gene was 100%, while(More)
