BACKGROUND Heat shock protein 70 (Hsp70) was identified as a cellular interaction partner of the influenza virus ribonucleoprotein (RNP) complex. The biological significance of the interaction between Hsp70 and RNP has not been fully investigated. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS Here we demonstrated that Hsp70 was involved in the regulation of influenza A viral(More)
BACKGROUND Generally, intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) may be the preferable method to treat partial globozoospermia, but whether there exist some correlations between ICSI fertilization rate and the proportion of round-headed sperm or morphologically normal sperm remains open. This study was to explore the correlation between ICSI fertilization rate(More)
A novel aerobic bacterium, designated strain LAM0705T, was isolated from the rhizosphere of Populus alba in the Peking University Third Hospital. Cells of strain LAM0705T were observed to be Gram-stain positive, motile, spore-forming and rod-shaped. The optimal temperature and pH for growth were found to be 30 °C and pH 7.5, respectively. Strain LAM0705T(More)
UNLABELLED Candidate genes, including myxovirus resistance-1 (Mx1), protein kinase (PKR), transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-beta), interleukin-10 (IL-10), and interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma), were evaluated for associations with liver fibrosis in 374 treatment-naive patients with genotype-1 chronic HCV infection [194 Caucasian Americans (CAs) and 180(More)
BACKGROUND S100P is a member of the S100 family of calcium-binding proteins, and it participates in pathophysiological events, such as tumor growth and invasion. Based on the striking similarities between trophoblast cells and tumor cells with regard to proliferative and invasive properties, we raised the question of whether and how S100P expresses in(More)
BACKGROUND With the progress of perinatal medicine and neonatal technology, more and more extremely low birth weight (ELBW) survived all over the world. This study was designed to investigate the short-term outcomes of ELBW infants during their Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) stay in the mainland of China. METHODS All infants admitted to 26 NICUs with(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the relationship between the degree of white matter damage and changes in brain function in premature infants early after birth according to amplitude-integrated electroencephalogram (aEEG) and raw EEG (with burst-suppression patterns). METHODS Thirty-eight premature infants of less than 32 weeks' gestational age and with white matter(More)
Objective. To investigate the relationship between weight catch-up growth and insulin sensitivity in small for gestational age (SGA) infants. Methods. Forty-four singleton SGA subjects met the inclusion criteria and finished-3-month followup. Body weight, length, fasting glucose, and fasting insulin (FI) levels were measured at 3 days and 3 months. Insulin(More)
