BACKGROUND To identify the genetic risk of six genetic variants at 8q21 and 8q24 (including rs1512268, A; rs12543663, C; rs10086908, C; rs1016343, T; rs13252298, A, and rs6983561, C) associated with prostate cancer in Beijing and Tianjin (Jing-jin) area residents in northern China. METHODS 574 subjects were enrolled. Blood samples and clinical information(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the association between haptoglobin (Hp) gene polymorphism and occurrence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in a northern Chinese population. We studied the association of the Hp gene polymorphism with T2DM in 584 unrelated T2DM patients and 690 control subjects with normal glucose tolerance among northern Chinese.(More)
CONTEXT An excess circulating uric acid level, even within the normal range, is always comorbid with metabolic syndrome (MS), several of its components, and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), which was regarded as hepatic manifestation of MS; however, these associations remain controversial. OBJECTIVE This study aimed to quantitatively assess the(More)
OBJECTIVE Adiponectin receptor 1 (encoded by ADIPOR1) is one of the major adiponectin receptors, and plays an important role in glucose and lipid metabolism. However, few studies have reported simultaneous associations between ADIPOR1 variants and type 2 diabetes (T2D), coronary artery disease (CAD) and T2D with CAD. Based on the "common soil" hypothesis,(More)
BACKGROUND The single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs1465618 in THADA at 2p21 has been identified as being associated with prostate cancer (PCa) risk in Europeans; however, it is not clear whether the SNP is related to PCa risk in multiple populations. We investigated the association of rs1465618 in THADA with PCa in a Chinese population and carried out a(More)
The unique features of the metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), including ultrahigh porosities and surface areas, tunable pores, endow the MOFs with special utilizations as host matrices. In this work, various neutral and ionic guest dye molecules, such as fluorescent brighteners, coumarin derivatives,(More)
In the past twenty-five years, over 700 case-control association studies on the risk of prostate cancer have been published worldwide, but their results were largely inconsistent. To facilitate following and explaining these findings, we performed a systematic meta-analysis using allelic contrasts for gene-specific SNVs from at least three independent(More)
The paper aims to quantitatively investigate the electromagnetic behaviors of silicon steel lamination used for magnetic shielding in large transformers. 3-D eddy current codes based on Ar-V-Ar method are developed. The non-linearity, hysteresis and anisotropy of the material are taken into account when the electromagnetic field is analyzed. A practical way(More)
A new 1D cyanide-bridged Co-Ru compound, {[trans-RuIII(dmap)4(CN)2Co(dipic)(MeOH)](PF6)}n (1a) (dmap = 4-dimethylaminopyridine, dipic = pyridine-2,6-dicarboxylate), and its reduced state, [trans-RuII(dmap)4(CN)2Co(dipic)]n (1b) have been synthesized. Upon the Ru center reduction from iii to ii, the MeOH solvent molecule bound to Co(ii) in 1a is expelled. 1a(More)
Utilizing the mixed-ligand strategy, a novel fourfold-interpenetrated 3D homochiral metal-organic framework (1) with rare pair quadruple-stranded helices was assembled from bpee (1,2-bis(4-pyridyl)ethylene) and NCG (N-carbamyl-l-glutamate). Changing the carbamyl substituent of NCG with benzoyl group (NBzG: N-benzoyl-l-glutamate), a non-interpenetrated 3D(More)
