Next-generation sequencing technologies could potentially be used for the rapid and cost-effective development of a large number of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers. On the basis of the transcriptome database of Tegillarca granosa by 454 pyrosequencing, we characterized 90 polymorphic SNP markers in 30 individuals using a high resolution melting(More)
OBJECTIVE To test the null hypothesis that there is no effect of maxillary incisor labiolingual inclination and anteroposterior (AP) position on smiling profile esthetics in young adult females. MATERIALS AND METHODS A facial smiling profile photograph of a Chinese woman with a normal profile, a Class I occlusion, and a Class I skeletal pattern was(More)
α-smooth muscle actin (α-SMA) and tenascin-C are stress-induced phenotypic features of myofibroblasts. The expression levels of these two proteins closely correlate with the extracellular mechanical microenvironment. We investigated how the expression of α-SMA and tenascin-C was altered in the periodontal ligament (PDL) under orthodontic loading to(More)
Underwater shock waves (SWs) generated by underwater electrical wire explosions (UEWEs) have been widely studied and applied. Precise measurement of this kind of SWs is important, but very difficult to accomplish due to their high peak pressure, steep rising edge and very short pulse width (on the order of tens of μs). This paper aims to analyze the signals(More)
Sugarcane (Saccharum officinarum L.) is an important sugar crop which belongs to the grass family and can be used for fuel ethanol production. The growing demands for sugar and biofuel is asking for breeding a sugarcane variety that can shed their leaves during the maturity time due to the increasing cost on sugarcane harvest. To determine leaf abscission(More)
Background. Water channel proteins, also called aquaporins, are integral membrane proteins from major intrinsic protein (MIP) family and involved in several pathways including not only water transport but also cell signaling, reproduction, and photosynthesis. The full cDNA and protein sequences of aquaporin in Chorispora bungeana Fisch. & C.A. Mey (C.(More)
Protein degradation is critical for most cellular processes, and investigating the degradation signals in the sequence and structure is beneficial for analysing the protein stability. In this paper, we investigated in depth the intrinsic factors affecting the protein degradation based on the sequence and structure features. The results indicated that there(More)
In order to investigate the two members of the EF‑hand Ca2+ binding protein S100 family, S100A8 and S100A9, in renal cell carcinoma (RCC), serum samples were collected from patients with RCC, transitional cell carcinoma in the kidney, benign renal masses and normal controls. The samples were analyzed by isobaric tags for relative and absolute quantification(More)
