In order to understand the genetic basis of the paste viscosity characteristics (RVA profile, which is tested on the Rapid Visco Analyser) of the rice grain, we mapped QTLs for RVA profile parameters using a DH population derived from a cross between an indica variety, Zai-Ye-Qing 8 (ZYQ8), and a japonica variety, Jing-Xi 17 (JX17). Evidence of(More)
The prerequisite of genomic research such as genetic mapping is construction of a suitable segregating population and its reasonable evaluation before use. A recombinant inbred line (RILs), NJRIKY, was constructed through a cross between Kefeng 1 and Nannong 1138-2. The present study was focused on evaluation of genetic structure of the RILs through the(More)
ADAMTS13 biosynthesis appeared to occur mainly in hepatic stellate cells, but detection of ADAMTS13 mRNA in many other tissues suggests that vascular endothelium may also produce ADAMTS13. We showed that ADAMTS13 mRNA and protein were detectable in human umbilical vein endothelial cells, aortic endothelial cells, and endothelium-derived cell line (ECV304).(More)
Using ELISA, Western blots and immunofluorescence techniques, we identified seropositivity for lymphadenopathy-associated virus/human lymphotropic virus-III (LAV/HTLV-III) in 4 of 18 hemophiliacs and 1 AIDS patient. The four seropositive patients had received factor VIII prepared by Armour Company. The hemophiliacs are all asymptomatic. Given this(More)
A DNA fragment representing a transcriptionally active retrotransposon of Ty3-gypsy type was isolated and characterized from rice (Oryza sativa L.). The fragment (named RIRE9) includes the coding sequences for the C-terminal part of the RNase H domain and the N-terminal part of the integrase domain in the polyprotein region. Northern blot hybridization(More)
INTRODUCTION ADAMTS-13 is a member of A Disintegrin And Metalloprotease with ThromboSpondin type 1 repeats (ADAMTS) family, primarily synthesized in hepatic stellate cells (HSCs), one of the major cell types transdifferentiating into myofibroblasts during liver fibrosis. However, the association between ADAMTS-13 expression and HSC activation or liver(More)

The investigation of death condition of HIV infected intravenous drug users (IVDU) was conducted with a retrospective cohort study in Ruili city of Yunnan province from 1989-Oct to 1993-Oct, the deaths among 395 HIV+ IVDUs add up to 61 and the mortality is 15.4%, which has significant difference compared to the death level of control cohort composed by 192(More)
In March 1992, KAP investigation and HIV blood test were carried out for 860 drug users and 82 spouses in Ruili, Luxi, Longchuan of Yunnan Province, China. The results showed that there were 285 injecting drug users (IDUs) (33.1%) among 860 drug users. Among 282 blood samples of IDUs, the HIV infection rate was 49.0%, highest in Ruili (81.8%, 63/77), then(More)
