A Silurian placoderm with osteichthyan-like marginal jaw bones
TLDR
A three-dimensionally preserved 419-million-year-old placoderm fish from the Silurian of China is described that represents the first stem gnathostome with dermal marginal jaw bones (premaxilla, maxilla and dentary), features previously restricted to Osteichthyes. Expand
Correlation between optic disc perfusion and glaucomatous severity in patients with open-angle glaucoma: an optical coherence tomography angiography study
TLDR
Angiograms demonstrated a reduced disc flow index and vessel density in glaucoma, and this reduction was closely related to GCC thickness, indicating that measurement of disc perfusion by angio-OCT might be important for the monitoring of glau coma. Expand
A primitive fossil fish sheds light on the origin of bony fishes
TLDR
This first tentative reconstruction of a 400-million-year-old fossil fish from China is presented, which changes the polarity of many characters used at present in reconstructing osteichthyan inter-relationships and offers new insights into the origin and evolution of osteichthyans. Expand
Comparison and evolution analysis of two rice subspecies LATERAL ORGAN BOUNDARIES domain gene family and their evolutionary characterization from Arabidopsis.
TLDR
Functional studies of genes in subclasses may help to determine whether special sequence structure (intron-exon, spacing characters of motifs) has caused special expression pattern of subclasses. Expand
A primitive fish provides key characters bearing on deep osteichthyan phylogeny
TLDR
This 405-million-year-old fish from the Lower Devonian of Yunnan (China) demonstrates that cosmine in many fossil sarcopterygians arose step by step through the acquisition of a pore–canal network followed by the subsequently developed ability to resorb previous generations of odontodes and enamel. Expand
A primitive sarcopterygian fish with an eyestalk
TLDR
A basal sarcopterygian fish is described that fills the morphological gap between Psarolepis and higher sarcoptergyians and the presence of eyestalk attachments is reported, showing that this supposedly non-osteichthyan feature occurs in basal sarcoperygians as well as the actinoptergyian-like Australian braincase. Expand
A new tonometer--the Corvis ST tonometer: clinical comparison with noncontact and Goldmann applanation tonometers.
TLDR
The CST offers an alternative method for measuring intraocular pressure (IOP) measurements obtained using the Topocon noncontact tonometer, the Goldmann applanation tonometer (GAT), and the Corvis ST, a newly developed tonometer with features of visualization and measurement of the corneal deformation response to an air impulse. Expand
Involvement of Th17 and Th1 Effector Responses in Patients with Hepatitis B
TLDR
The results suggest that the balance of effector CD4+ Th responses (Th17 and Th1 responses) and regulatory response is an important element of immune regulation. Expand
A primitive fish close to the common ancestor of tetrapods and lungfish
TLDR
Styloichthys from the Lower Devonian of China bridges the morphological gap between stem-group sarcopterygians (Psarolepis and Achoania) and basal tetrapodomorphs/basal dipnomorphs and provides information that will help in the study of the relationship of early sarcoperygians, and which will also help to resolve the tetrapods–lungfish divergence into a documented sequence of character acquisition. Expand
Reprogramming of Normal Fibroblasts into Cancer-Associated Fibroblasts by miRNAs-Mediated CCL2/VEGFA Signaling
TLDR
Results show that miRNAs-mediated FOXO3a/VEGF/CCL2 signaling plays a prominent role in LCCs-mediated NFs into CAFs, which may have clinical implications for providing novel biomarker and potential therapeutic target(s) of lung cancer in the future. Expand
