The consecutive monoculturing of peanut seriously affects its yield and quality in the red soil regions of southern China. Different control measures for consecutively monocultured peanut fields should be explored to ensure the sustainable development of the local peanut industry. In this study, the influence of two different regimes, the intercropping of(More)
OBJECTIVES To re-estimate the association between methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase gene (MTHFR) C677T polymorphism and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) risk by critically reviewing, analyzing and updating the current evidence. MTHFR C677T polymorphism has been studied as a possible risk factor for a variety of common conditions including heart disease,(More)
The high incidence of various soil-borne diseases in the monoculture field of peanut is a major production constraint in the red soil regions of southern China. The peanut root exudates are generally thought to play an important role in regulating soil-borne pathogens. The responses of the soil-borne pathogens, Fusarium oxysporum and F. solani to the peanut(More)
Regulation of gene expression is necessary to avoid possible adverse effects of gene therapy due to excess synthesis of transgene products. To reduce transgene expression, we developed a viral vector-mediated somatic regulation system using inducible Cre recombinase. A recombinant adeno-associated virus (AAV) vector expressing Cre recombinase fused to a(More)
The attenuation of disease resistance in transgenic insect-resistant cotton has become one of the important factors restricting cotton production in China. Two transgenic insect-resistant cotton lines and their parental conventional cotton lines were used as the testing materials. The effects of root exudates of these cotton lines on the spore germination(More)
Iodine-125 (125I) seed implantation has been widely used for the treatment of unresectable advanced tumors. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying the tumor-suppressive effects of 125I irradiation have not been fully elucidated. The present study demonstrated that 125I irradiation suppresses cell viability and inhibits cell invasiveness of gastric(More)
BACKGROUND Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a fatal neurodegenerative disease that primarily affects motor neurons and has no effective treatment. Recently, Iida et al. identified a single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs2275294 in the ZNF512B gene that is significantly associated with susceptibility to ALS in the Japanese population. Here, we(More)
The components of the root exudates from two transgenic insect-resistant cotton lines and their parental cotton lines, and their effects on the growth of Fusarium oxysporum were investigated. The results demonstrated that the resistance of transgenic insect-resistant cotton to F. oxysporum was significantly reduced compared with their parental lines.(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of health education on prevention from schistosome infection in engineering construction workers in Poyang Lake area. METHODS The workers for constructing "De Chang" highway in Poyang Lake area were divided randomly into an experiment group and a control group, "health education + protective skill training" was carried out(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of renal sympathetic denervation on left ventricular hypertrophy and inflammatory factors in spontaneously hypertensive rats. METHODS Thirty six spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) were divided into 3 groups with 12 animals in each group: SHR control group,operation group and sham operation group. Bilateral renal(More)
