Association between air pollution and low birth weight: a community-based study.
The relationship between maternal exposure to air pollution during periods of pregnancy (entire and specific periods) and birth weight was investigated in a well-defined cohort. Between 1988 andExpand

Acute effects of total suspended particles and sulfur dioxides on preterm delivery: a community-based cohort study.
The acute effects of air pollution on preterm delivery were examined in a prospective cohort in Beijing, China. From early pregnancy until delivery in 1988, we followed all registered pregnant womenExpand

Effects of chronic exposure of 2,4-dichlorophenol on the antioxidant system in liver of freshwater fish Carassius auratus.
There were few reports on the antioxidant response of aquatic organisms exposed to 2,4-dichlorophenol (2,4-DCP). This research explored the hepatic antioxidant responses of fish to long-term exposureExpand

Pentatricopeptide repeat proteins stimulate mRNA adenylation/uridylation to activate mitochondrial translation in trypanosomes.
The majority of trypanosomal mitochondrial pre-mRNAs undergo massive uridine insertion/deletion editing, which creates open reading frames. Although the pre-editing addition of short 3' A tails isExpand
