The hominin record from southern Asia for the early Late Pleistocene epoch is scarce. Well-dated and well-preserved fossils older than ∼45,000 years that can be unequivocally attributed to Homo sapiens are lacking. Here we present evidence from the newly excavated Fuyan Cave in Daoxian (southern China). This site has provided 47 human teeth dated to more(More)
Located in Central South China, Hunan province is rich in mineral resources. To study the influence of mining on Cd pollution to local agricultural eco-system, the paddy soils and rice grain of Y county in northern Hunan province were intensively monitored. The results were as follows: (1) Total Cd (T-Cd) content in the soils of the county ranges from 0.13(More)
AIM To study the capacity of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSCs) trans-differentiating into islet-like cells and to observe the effect of portal vein transplantation of islet-like cells in the treatment of streptozotocin-induced diabetic rat. METHODS BM-MSCs were isolated from SD rats and induced to differentiate into islet-like cells under(More)
Malignant cells show increased glucose uptake in vitro and in vivo. This process is considered to be mediated by glucose transporters (GLUTs). Hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α) may upregulate GLUT-1 expression. Little is known about the correlation between HIF-1α and GLUT-1 expression in laryngeal carcinoma. The current study investigated this(More)
Published data on the association of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) −1154G>A polymorphism with cancer risk is inconclusive. To derive a more precise estimation of association between VEGF −1154G>A polymorphism and the risk of cancer, we performed a meta-analysis of 7,071 cancer cases and 7,693 controls from 16 published case–control studies. Our(More)
Soil microbe plays an essential role in terrestrial ecosystem through its role in cycling mineral compounds and decomposing organic matter. The objective of this paper is to determine the influences of different land use patterns on soil microbial activity and community structure, which were analyzed by phospholipids fatty acid (PLFA) and MicroResp method,(More)
The thyroid imaging reporting and data system (TIRADS) and Bethesda system for reporting thyroid cytopathology (BSRTC) have been used for interpretation of ultrasound and fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) results of thyroid nodules. BRAF(V600E) mutation analysis is a molecular tool in diagnosing thyroid carcinoma. Our objective was to compare the(More)
Paroxetine is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor used for the treatment of depression; this study investigated its other mechanisms by studying the expression and therefore involvement of norepinephrine transporter (NET) and serotonin transporter (5-HTT). Male Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into a vehicle-treated control group (VC), a(More)
Osteoporosis has become one of the most prevalent and costly diseases in the world. It is a metabolic disease characterized by reduction in bone mass due to an imbalance between bone formation and resorption. Osteoporosis causes fractures, prolongs bone healing, and impedes osseointegration of dental implants. Its pathological features include osteopenia,(More)
