OBJECTIVE DNA repair genes play a key role in maintaining genomic stability and integrity. DNA repair gene polymorphisms, such as those of XRCC3 and xeroderma pigmentosum, complementation group D and G (XPD, XPG), contribute to carcinogenesis. In this study, we investigated the correlation between cervical carcinoma risk and XRCC3, XPD, XPG genetic(More)
Chlorophyll a fluorescence parameters can provide qualitative and quantitative information about photosynthetic processes in chloroplasts. JIP-test and modulated fluorescence (MF) parameters are commonly used chlorophyll a fluorescence parameters. This study was conducted to identify quantitative trait loci (QTLs) associated with JIP-test parameters, MF(More)
In this paper, we reported a kind of exoelectrogens, Pseudomonas alcaliphila (P. alcaliphila) strain MBR, which could excrete phenazine-1-carboxylic acid (PCA) to transfer electron under alkaline condition in microbial fuel cells (MFCs). The electrochemical activity of strain MBR and the extracellular electron transfer mechanism in MFCs were evaluated by(More)
Strain MBR(T) was isolated from landfill leachate in a solid-waste disposal site in Chengdu, Sichuan, China. An analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences revealed that the isolate was closely related to members of the genus Pseudomonas, sharing the highest sequence similarities with Pseudomonas toyotomiensis HT-3(T) (99.8 %), Pseudomonas alcaliphila AL15-21(T)(More)
The effects of organic carbon/inorganic nitrogen (C/N) ratio on the nitrification processes and the community shifts of nitrifying biofilms were investigated by kinetic comparison and denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) analysis. The results showed that the nitrification rate decreased with an increasing organic concentration. However, the effect(More)
Adipose-derived stem cells/adipose-derived progenitor cells (ADPCs) are multipotent stem cells that can differentiate in vitro into many cell types. However, the vast majority of experimental materials were obtained from human, mouse, rabbit, and other mammals but rarely from poultry. In this study, ADPCs were isolated from 1-day-old chicks. Primary ADPCs(More)
Purpose To explore the REV1 genetic variants effect the risk of cervical carcinoma. Methods Total 543 cases, including 282 carcinoma and 261 CIN, and 480 normal controls were performed. Two single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) (REV1 Phe257Ser and REV1 Asn373Ser) were genotyped by PCR-squencing, and analysis the correlation to clinical character including(More)
OBJECTIVE To isolate and culture skeletal muscle satellite cells of Luxi cattle embryo and study its biological characteristics. METHODS The skeletal muscles were taken from the limbs of Luxi cattle embryo of 30-50 d old to isolate and culture the skeletal muscle satellite cells by differential adherence method and co-digestion of type I collagenase and(More)
High altitude environments are of particular interest in the studies of local adaptation as well as their implications in physiology and clinical medicine in human. Some Chinese pig breeds, such as Tibetan pig (TBP) that is well adapted to the high altitude and Dahe pig (DHP) that dwells at the moderate altitude, provide ideal materials to study local(More)
Body size, one of the most important quantitative traits under evolutionary scrutiny, varies considerably among species and among populations within species. Revealing the genetic basis underlying this variation is very important, particularly in humans where there is a close relationship with diseases and in domestic animals as the selective patterns are(More)
