Avian tembusu virus (TMUV), which was first identified in eastern China, is an emerging virus causing serious economic losses in the Chinese poultry industry. Here, we report the complete genome sequence of goose tembusu virus strain JS804, isolated from Jiangnan white geese with severe neurological signs. The genome of JS804 is 10,990 nucleotides (nt) in(More)

The potassium voltage-gated channel, KQT-like subfamily member 1 (KCNQ1) is a member of 11 mammalian Kv channel families that plays a key role for the repolarization of the cardiac action potential as well as water and salt transport. Genome-wide association studies have identified KCNQ1 as a type 2 diabetes (T2D) susceptibility gene in populations of Asian(More)
Wind changes, and particularly wind changes that are associated with dry cold fronts, have profound effects on fire behaviour and fire-fighting operations (e.g. Cheney et al. 2001). Huang and Mills (2006b) (hereafter Part 1) have reported on the first stage of a larger scale project that aims to improve the understanding and prediction of wind changes in(More)
Duck Tembusu virus (DTMUV) is a newly emerging pathogenic flavivirus that has caused massive economic losses to the duck industry in China. DTMUV infection mainly results in significant decreases in egg production in egg-laying ducks within 1-2 weeks post infection. However, information on the comparative protein expression of host tissues in response to(More)
H9N2 Avian influenza virus has repeatedly infected humans and other mammals, which highlights the need to determine the pathogenicity and the corresponding mechanism of this virus for mammals. In this study, we found two H9N2 viruses with similar genetic background but with different pathogenicity in mice. The A/duck/Nanjing/06/2003 (NJ06) virus was highly(More)
Background. This study investigated an association between systemic absolute neutrophil count (ANC) and albuminuria in elderly Chinese people. Methods. A cross-sectional study was conducted on 2265 participants attending a routine medical examination in Minhang District as part of a Platform of Chronic Disease program. Their drug history, waist(More)
Note that network coding allows immediate nodes to mix information from different data flows. On the basis of this observation, we prove that under suitable conditions, communicators can communicate with perfect secrecy over wiretap networks. Our method of secure communication over wiretap networks without keys is fundamentally distinct from cryptographic(More)
