SAM-pointed domain-containing ETS transcription factor (SPDEF) is expressed in normal prostate epithelium. While its expression changes during prostate carcinogenesis (PCa), the role of SPDEF in prostate cancer remains controversial due to the lack of genetic mouse models. In present study, we generated transgenic mice with the loss- or gain-of-function of(More)
Insect-specific ascoviruses with a circular genome are distributed in the USA, France, Australia and Indonesia. Here, we report the first ascovirus isolation from Spodoptera exigua in Hunan, China. DNA-DNA hybridization to published ascoviruses demonstrated that the new China ascovirus isolate is a variant of Heliothis virescens ascovirus 3a (HvAV-3a), thus(More)
Glutathione S-transferases (GSTs) are a family of enzymes which are involved in the detoxification of potential carcinogens. Glutathione S-transferase M1 (GSTM1) null genotype can impair the enzyme activity of GSTs and is suspected to increase the susceptibility to gallbladder cancer. Previous studies investigating the association between GSTM1 null(More)
Discoid lateral meniscus of the knee causes a high morbidity in China. Since the traditional treatment to open the capsule and resect the meniscus often results in arthritis, it is now believed that a discoid lateral meniscus should be treated with arthroscopy to preserve part of the meniscus. The current study aimed to investigate the short-term clinical(More)
An expression cassette containing the DsRed2 gene, which encodes the red fluorescent protein (RFP), was inserted into the wide-host-range Autographa californica M nucleopolyhedrovirus (AcMNPV) at the polyhedrin locus (vAcDsRed2). An expression cassette containing the enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP) gene was inserted at the gp37 locus of the(More)
