This meta-analysis was conducted to assess the association between coffee consumption and prostate cancer risk. Thirteen cohort studies with 34,105 cases and 539,577 participants were included in the meta-analysis. The summary relative risks (RRs) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) for different coffee intake levels were calculated. Dose-response(More)
Using an estrogen-inducible expression XVE (LexA-VP16-Estragon Receptor) system, we have generated approximately 40 000 independent T-DNA insertion lines of Arabidopsis thaliana. Segregation analyses of about 18000 lines indicated that 51.6% of them contain single T-DNA insertions and that the average insertion number is 1.38 copies per line. Mutants(More)
This meta-analysis was conducted to assess the association between fruit and vegetable intake and bladder cancer risk. Eligible studies published up to August 2014 were retrieved both through a computer search of PubMed, Embase and the Cochrane library and through a manual review of references. The summary relative risks with 95% confidence intervals (CIs)(More)
Glucagon-like peptide1 (GLP-1) is secreted from Langerhans cells in response to oral nutrient intake. Glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1RAs) are a new class of incretin-based anti-diabetic drugs. They function to stimulate insulin secretion while suppressing glucagon secretion. GLP-1-based therapies are now well established in the management(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Primary renal synovial sarcoma is rare and might be misdiagnosed as another renal tumor. This study demonstrates the clinicopathologic and immunohistochemical features, differential diagnosis, and prognosis of such tumors. METHODS Histologic slides and clinical data were reviewed for 4 patients with primary renal synovial sarcoma(More)
Body adiposity, especially ectopic fat accumulation, has a range of metabolic and cardiovascular effects. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between head fat and metabolic values in Chinese obese patients. Data of this cross-sectional study from 66 obese patients were collected. Fat distribution was measured by dual-energy X-ray(More)
Transcription factors play important roles in the regulation of plant growth and development, as well as its response to environment. A typical higher plant transcription factor usually contains a DNA-binding domain, a transcription regulation domain, oligomerization site and a nuclear localization domain. Transcription factors interact with cis-elements(More)
Previous studies have investigated the relationship between oral contraceptives (OCs) use and kidney cancer risk. However, they yielded inconsistent results. To our knowledge, a comprehensive assessment of the association between OC and kidney cancer risk has not been reported. Hence, we conducted a meta-analysis to quantify the association. We identified(More)
