The Xenopus dorsalizing factor Gremlin identifies a novel family of secreted proteins that antagonize BMP activities.
Using a Xenopus expression-cloning screen, we have isolated Gremlin, a novel antagonist of bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) signaling that is expressed in the neural crest. Gremlin belongs to a novel… Expand

To develop a new approach for the detection and typing of duck hepatitis A virus (DHAV), a pair of non-degenerate primers was designed to amplify a approximately 250-bp genomic region in the 5'UTR. 3… Expand
Focal adhesion kinase is required for intestinal regeneration and tumorigenesis downstream of Wnt/c-Myc signaling.
The intestinal epithelium has a remarkable capacity to regenerate after injury and DNA damage. Here, we show that the integrin effector protein Focal Adhesion Kinase (FAK) is dispensable for normal… Expand
Association of G72/G30 with schizophrenia in the Chinese population.
Recently, the G72 gene was reported to be associated with schizophrenia in the French Canadian and Russian populations. Here, we report the results obtained from the study of six single-nucleotide… Expand
Molecular characterization of a new strain of sugarcane streak mosaic virus (SCSMV)
The complete nucleotide sequences of three sugarcane streak mosaic virus (SCSMV) isolates found in sugarcane plants imported from Japan (JP1, JP2) and Indonesia (ID) into China were determined.… Expand
Graphene oxide induces toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4)-dependent necrosis in macrophages.
Graphene and graphene-based nanomaterials display novel and beneficial chemical, electrical, mechanical, and optical characteristics, which endow these nanomaterials with promising applications in a… Expand
Metabolic profiling reveals disorder of amino acid metabolism in four brain regions from a rat model of chronic unpredictable mild stress
Chronic stress is closely linked to clinical depression, which could be assessed by a chronic unpredictable mild stress (CUMS) animal model. We present here a GC/MS‐based metabolic profiling approach… Expand
Anti‐influenza agents from plants and traditional Chinese medicine
Influenza is a serious threat to health in all parts of the world. The control and treatment of influenza depends mainly on chemical or biochemical agents and, to date, some anti‐influenza agents… Expand
Association of DAAO with schizophrenia in the Chinese population
Recently, the gene called DAAO was reported to be associated with schizophrenia in the French Canadian populations. Here, we report a result obtained in the study of our large collection of 547… Expand
