Based on next-generation sequencing data, we assembled the mitochondrial (mt) genome of date palm (Phoenix dactylifera L.) into a circular molecule of 715,001 bp in length. The mt genome of P. dactylifera encodes 38 proteins, 30 tRNAs, and 3 ribosomal RNAs, which constitute a gene content of 6.5% (46,770 bp) over the full length. The rest, 93.5% of the(More)
We report allele frequencies and statistical parameters of 15 short tandem repeats (STR) loci (D8S1179, D21S11, D7S820, CSF1PO, D3S1358, TH01, D13S317, D16S539, D2S1338, D19S433, vWA, TPOX, D18S51, D5S818 and FGA) determined in 850 unrelated individuals of Chinese Tibetan, an ethnic group residing in Qinghai Province, China. We observed 155 alleles with(More)
Fifteen autosomal STRs loci were analyzed from two samples of 178 healthy unrelated autochthonous individuals of Chinese Dongxiang and Salar ethnic minority groups using a multiplex PCR system. Allele frequencies distribution and statistical parameters for all STR loci, D8S1179, D21S11, D7S820, CSF1PO, D3S1358, TH01, D13S317, D16S539, D2S1338, D19S433, vWA,(More)
Date palm (Phoenix dactylifera L.) is a cultivated woody plant species with agricultural and economic importance. Here we report a genome assembly for an elite variety (Khalas), which is 605.4 Mb in size and covers >90% of the genome (~671 Mb) and >96% of its genes (~41,660 genes). Genomic sequence analysis demonstrates that P. dactylifera experienced a(More)
We studied and established a DNA database of 15 euchromosome STRs (D8S1179, D21S11, D7S820, CSF1PO, D3S1358, TH01, D13S317, D16S539, D2S1338, D19S433, vWA, TPOX, D18S51, D5S818 and FGA) in a population sample of 151 unrelated individuals of Tu ethnic minority group. Allelic frequencies and statistical parameters of Tu population were calculated. Totally 136(More)
Pseudolaric acid B (PAB), a natural diterpene acid present in the traditional Chinese medicinal herb Tu-Jin-Pi, exerted anticancer effects on various cancer cells. However, the effect of PAB on DU145 cells, an in vitro model of hormone-refractory prostate cancer (HRPC), has not been reported previously. In the study, PAB significantly suppressed(More)
In this study, we investigated cellular biocompatibility in vitro and segmental bone defect repairing efficacy in vivo of a previously reported fibre-reinforced scaffold, nano-hydroxyapatite/collagen/poly (L-lactic acid) (PLLA)/chitin fibres (nHACP/CF). First, attachment, proliferation, and differentiation of the goat bone mesenchymal stem cells (GBMSCs)(More)
The intestinal microbes residing in the red palm weevil (RPW, Rhynchophorus ferrugineus) larva consume tender interior fibrous tissues of date palm trunks. The understanding of such microbiota at molecular level provides vital clues for the biological control of this devastating pest. Using pyrosequencing and shotgun strategy, we first study taxonomic(More)
OBJECTIVE Despite advances in chemotherapy and cytoreductive surgery, ovarian cancer remains the most lethal gynecological malignancy with a 5-year survival rate of 25% to 30% in advanced stage disease. Our purpose is to evaluate whether astrocyte elevated gene-1 (AEG-1) is a novel predictor of peritoneal dissemination and lymph node metastasis in(More)
Epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) endows cancer cells with enhanced invasive and metastatic potential during cancer progression. Fractalkine, also known as chemokine (C-X3-C motif) ligand 1 (CX3CL1), the only member recognized so far that belongs to the CX3C chemokine subfamily, was reported to participate in the molecular events that regulate cell(More)
