INTRODUCTION Peden et al. have revealed a significant association between four new risk loci and coronary heart disease (CHD) in Europeans and South Asians. The goal of this study is to evaluate the contribution of these genetic loci to CHD risk in Han Chinese. METHODS We recruited 161 CHD patients and 112 controls proved by angiography originated from(More)
The mixture of users with different bandwidth capability presents new challenges to optimize the transmission performance of the next generation wireless networks. This paper focuses on resource allocation for pervasive wireless networks with component carrier (CC) aggregation. Distinguished from many existing methods that decompose the resource(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Adherence to a Mediterranean diet may link to a better preserved kidney function in the community as well as a favorable cardiometabolic profile and reduced mortality risk in individuals with manifest CKD. DESIGN, SETTING, PARTICIPANTS, & MEASUREMENTS Dietary habits were determined by 7-day dietary records in a population-based(More)
microRNA-218 was proved to be a tumor-suppressor microRNA in several cancers, but its status in cervical cancer patients has not been established. In this study, we investigated the expression of microRNA-218 in the sera from cervical cancer patients and its relationships with clinico-pathological characteristics. The expression of microRNA-218 was detected(More)
Thyroid hormone disorders have long been linked to depression, but the causal relationship between them remains controversial. To address this question, we established rat models of hypothyroidism using (131)iodine ((131)I) and hyperthyroidism using levothyroxine (LT4). Serum free thyroxine (FT4) and triiodothyronine (FT3) significantly decreased in the(More)
BACKGROUND Long QT syndrome type 2 (LQT2) is the second most common type of all long QT syndromes. It is well-known that trafficking deficient mutant human ether-a-go-go-related gene (hERG) proteins are often involved in LQT2. Cells respond to misfolded and trafficking-deficient proteins by eliciting the unfolded protein response (UPR) and Activating(More)
Parasites are accountable for driving diversity within immune gene families. We identified and investigated regulatory single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the promoter regions of the tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily member 18 (TNFRSF18) gene by direct sequencing in a group of male Gabonese individuals exposed to a wide array of parasitic(More)
Two saponins: scrokoelziside A (1), scrokoelziside B (2), one iridoid glycoside, eurostoside (3), and two flavonoids: nepitrin (4) and homoplantaginin (5), were isolated from the leaves of Scrophularia ningpoensis for the first time. Moreover, eight known compounds: cane sugar (6), harpagide (7), aucubin (8), 6-O-methylcatalpol (9), harpagoside (10),(More)
AIMS To investigate the association of ABCG1, GALNT2 and HMGCR genes promoter DNA methylation with coronary heart disease (CHD) and explore the interaction between their methylation status and the CHD patients' clinical characteristics in Han Chinese population. METHODS AND RESULTS Methylation-specific polymerase chain reaction (MSP) technology was used(More)
AIMS The goal of our study is to assess the contribution of KIF6 Trp719Arg to both the risk of CHD and the efficacy of statin therapy in CHD patients. METHODS AND RESULTS Meta-analysis of 8 prospective studies among 77,400 Caucasians provides evidence that 719Arg increases the risk of CHD (P<0.001, HR = 1.27, 95% CI = 1.15-1.41). However, another(More)
