Bytecode as produced by modern programming languages is well suited for search-based testing: Different languages compile to the same byte-code, bytecode is available also for third party libraries, all predicates are atomic and side-effect free, and instrumentation can be performed without recompilation. However, bytecode is also susceptible to the flag(More)
Signal transduction from toll-like receptors (TLRs) is important for innate immunity against infections, but deregulated TLR signalling contributes to inflammatory disorders. Here we show that myeloid cell-specific ablation of TRAF2 greatly promotes TLR-stimulated proinflammatory cytokine expression in macrophages and exacerbates colitis in an animal model(More)
Our previous studies have demonstrated that histidine supplementation significantly ameliorates inflammation and oxidative stress in obese women and high-fat diet-induced obese rats. However, the effects of dietary histidine on general population are not known. The objective of this Internet-based cross-sectional study was to evaluate the associations(More)
This study aims to examine the association between the ratio of dietary branched chain amino acids (BCAA) and risk of obesity among young northern Chinese adults. A total of 948 randomly recruited participants were asked to finish our internet-based dietary questionnaire for the Chinese (IDQC). Associations between dietary BCAA ratio and prevalence of(More)
Dietary habits are crucial in the progression of hepatic lipid accumulation and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). However, there are limited studies using ¹H-magnetic resonance spectroscopy (¹H-MRS) and dual-echo in-phase and out-phase magnetic resonance spectroscopy imaging (dual-echo MRI) to assess the effects of dietary nutrient intakes on(More)
Cigarette smoking, a major independent risk factor of atherosclerosis, can cause oxidative and inflammatory damage of vascular tissue. Heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) is an endogenous cytoprotective enzyme with an anti-oxidant role in cells. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether HO-1 was able to protect vascular and endothelial cells from the(More)
