Systematic functional analysis of the Caenorhabditis elegans genome using RNAi
A principal challenge currently facing biologists is how to connect the complete DNA sequence of an organism to its development and behaviour. Large-scale targeted-deletions have been successful inExpand

Clinical review: Efficacy of antimicrobial-impregnated catheters in external ventricular drainage - a systematic review and meta-analysis
To assess the efficacy of antimicrobial-impregnated catheters in preventing catheter-related infections during external ventricular drainage (EVD), we performed a meta-analysis and systematic review.Expand

Analysis of the Drought Stress-Responsive Transcriptome of Black Cottonwood (Populus trichocarpa) Using Deep RNA Sequencing
The complete genome of Populus trichocarpa has been available for years, however, relatively little effort has been made to map and quantify the transcriptome for this important model organism. Here,Expand

An X chromosome-wide association analysis identifies variants in GPR174 as a risk factor for Graves’ disease
Background Graves’ disease is a female preponderant autoimmune illness and the contribution of the X chromosome to its risk has long been appreciated. However, no X-linked susceptibility loci haveExpand

Melatonin regulates PARP1 to control the senescence‐associated secretory phenotype (SASP) in human fetal lung fibroblast cells
Cellular senescence is an important tumor‐suppressive mechanism. However, acquisition of a senescence‐associated secretory phenotype (SASP) in senescent cells has deleterious effects on the tissueExpand

Chloroplast small heat-shock proteins protect photosynthesis during heavy metal stress.
Plants can accumulate heavy metals when exposed to them at high levels. These metals can interfere with photosynthesis. Limited evidence suggests that increased synthesis of some heat-shock proteinsExpand

Hyphae-Specific Genes HGC1, ALS3, HWP1, and ECE1 and Relevant Signaling Pathways in Candida albicans
Fungal virulence mechanisms include adhesion to epithelia, morphogenesis, production of secretory hydrolytic enzymes, and phenotype switching, all of which contribute to the process of pathogenesis.Expand

A novel bHLH transcription factor PebHLH35 from Populus euphratica confers drought tolerance through regulating stomatal development, photosynthesis and growth in Arabidopsis.
Plant basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factors (TFs) are involved in a variety of physiological processes including the regulation of plant responses to various abiotic stresses. However,Expand

Coagulation Parameters and Risk of Progressive Hemorrhagic Injury after Traumatic Brain Injury: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
Intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) after traumatic brain injury (TBI) commonly increases in size and coagulopathy has been implicated in such progression. Our aim is to perform a meta-analysis to assessExpand

A huge occipital osteoblastoma accompanied with aneurysmal bone cyst in the posterior cranial fossa
Osteoblastoma is an infrequent benign tumor and skull involvement is extremely rare. The occipital bone is much less frequently involved. We report an unusual case of a huge occipital osteoblastomaExpand
