Salinity in soils is among the major constraints of agricultural and forestry productivity worldwide. To investigate the basis of salt tolerance in Salix matsudana Koidz (Chinese willow), comparative proteomes of 1.5-month-old cuttings were analyzed using two-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2-DE). Proteins were extracted from roots of plants grown under(More)
BACKGROUND Nucleoside analogues are recommended as antiviral treatments for patients with hepatitis B virus (HBV)-associated liver failure. Clinical data comparing entecavir (ETV) and lamivudine (LAM) are inconsistent in this setting. OBJECTIVES To compare the efficacy and safety of ETV and LAM in patients with chronic hepatitis B (CHB)-associated liver(More)
MicroRNAs are small and non-coding RNA molecules with the master role in regulation of gene expression at post-transcriptional/translational levels. Many methods have been developed for microRNA loss-of-function study, such as antisense inhibitors and sponges; however, the robustness, specificity, and stability of these traditional strategies are not highly(More)
Studies are limited regarding the association between the quantity of hepatitis virus B (HBV) DNA loads in serum and peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) in patients with drug resistance and few studies focus on the mutational pattern of the polymerase gene of HBV in PBMCs of patients with drug resistance. The aim of the present study was to(More)
