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)
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)
Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) play a significant role in genetic studies as the third-generation molecular markers. The availability of high-throughput transcriptome sequencing has made possible the rapid and efficient development of SNP markers. Here, a total of 87 SNP loci were identified using high-resolution melting analysis based on the(More)
We report an effective solvent engineering process to enable controlled perovskite crystal growth and a wider window for processing uniform and dense methyl ammonium lead iodide (MAPbI3) perovskite films. Planar heterojunction solar cells fabricated with this method demonstrate hysteresis-free performance with a power conversion efficiency around 10%. The(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)
