Restriction maps of rDNA repeats of five species of Colobinae and three outgroup taxa, Hylobates leucogenys, Macaca mulatta, and Macaca irus, were constructed using 15 restriction endonucleases and cloned 18S and 28S rRNA gene probes. The site variation between Rhinopithecus roxellana and Rhinopithecus bieti is comparable to that between Presbytis françoisi(More)
Corynespora leaf fall disease of Hevea brasiliensis caused by Corynespora cassiicola has been a major cause of severely reduced rubber latex production in Asia and Africa. The aim of this study was to determine whether physiological races of C. cassiicola exist in the Hainan and Yunnan provinces, China, and to accelerate and simplify the process of(More)
We constructed a plasmid that contains a small piece of DNA with two vaccinia promoters running in opposite directions--a promoter from a late gene encoding an 11 K polypeptide (P11) and a promoter from an early gene encoding 25K (P25). These promoters were isolated from the Tian Tan strain of vaccinia virus and were flanked by the thymidine kinase (TK)(More)
Commercial banana varieties are highly susceptible to fungal pathogens, as well as bacterial pathogens, nematodes, viruses, and insect pests. The largest known family of plant resistance genes encodes proteins with nucleotide-binding site (NBS) and C-terminal leucine-rich repeat (LRR) domains. Conserved motifs in such genes in diverse plant species(More)
Corynespora cassiicola, which causes Corynespora leaf fall disease, is one of the most destructive and economically important fungal pathogens of Hevea rubber trees in Asian and African countries. This fungus is present in some Hevea rubber plantations and nurseries in Hainan and Yunnan provinces of South China. We describe the development of a PCR assay(More)
Corynespora leaf fall (CLF) disease, caused by the fungal pathogen Corynespora cassiicola, is a major disease of rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis) that affects the production of natural rubber. To study its pathogenesis, we developed a C. cassiicola transformant tagged with green fluorescent protein and studied it using fluorescence and confocal laser(More)
Treatment of chronic renal failure with rhubarb and adjuvant drugs combined with other appropriate measures alleviates the suffering of the patients and improves the quality of their survival. Most patients can take care of themselves after treatment, and some can engage in half-day work. The treatment prolongs the life of the patient, and reduces medical(More)
Fusarium oxysporum f. sp.cubense from Hainan province of South China was identified by colony morphology on modified Komada medium (K2 medium). Forty isolates ofF. oxysporum f. sp.cubense obtained from Cavendish cultivars sampled at random from 20 banana farms of Hainan province, China, formed laciniated colonies on modified K2 medium. None of the isolates(More)
This study aimed to disclose the potential causality of low bilirubin in patients with nephrotic syndrome (NS). Correlation analysis was carried out on total bilirubin (TBIL) to serum albumin (ALB), urine protein (Upr), and urinary microalbumin/creatinine (Umalb/cr) for three groups in a case-control study. P < 0.001 was observed for TBIL, ALB, Umalb/cr,(More)
