BACKGROUND To identify changes in brain activation patterns in bipolar disorder (BD) and unipolar depression (UD) patients. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS Resting-state fMRI scans of 16 healthy controls, 17 BD and 16 UD patients were obtained. T-test of normalized regional homogeneity (ReHo) was performed in a voxel-by-voxel manner. A combined threshold(More)
Ophiocordyceps sinensis (Ascomycota: Ophiocordycipitaceae) is a native fungal parasite of Hepialidae caterpillars and one of the most economically important medicinal caterpillar fungi in China. However, little is known about the phylogenetic and evolutionary relationships between O. sinensis and its host insects. In this study, nuclear ITS and β-tubulin(More)
The caterpillar fungus Ophiocordyceps sinensis is one of the most valuable medicinal fungi in the world, and it requires host insects in family Hepialidae (Lepidoptera) to complete its life cycle. However, the genetic diversity and phylogeographic structures of the host insects remain to be explored. We analyzed the genetic diversity and temporal and(More)
Taxus mairei is an endangered plant with high medicinal value in China. In the present study, inter-simple sequence repeat markers and high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) were used to investigate genetic diversity, taxol content, and the inter-relationship of these two variables in 11 populations. Genetic diversity was high at the species level(More)
Job's tears (Coix lachryma-jobi L.) is an important crop used as food and herbal medicine in Asian countries. A drug made of Job's tears seed oil has been clinically applied to treat multiple cancers. In this study, the genetic diversity of Job's tears accessions and the fatty acid composition, triglyceride composition, and anti-proliferative effect of(More)
