INTRODUCTION Results of several studies have indicated that the variation of c.-3279T>G in the UDP-glucuronosyltransferase (UGT)1A1 gene could be a further factor for the development of hyperbilirubinemia. However, this variant has not been reported in the Taiwanese population. MATERIALS & METHODS PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism was utilized(More)
The mitochondrial genome of Bactrocera cucurbitae, a representative of the Tephritid family, was completely sequenced for the first time. The B. cucurbitae genome is a double-stranded circular molecule of 15,825 bp long, including the entire set of the 37 genes. The 72.9% A+T content and 0.047 AT-skew are within the range of the known dipteran genomes.(More)
AIM:To investigate the role of blood transfusion in TT viral infection(TTV).METHODS:We retrospectively studied serum samples from 192 transfusion recipients who underwent cardiovascular surgery and blood transfusion between July 1991 and June 1992. All patients had a follow-up every other week for at least 6 months after transfusion. Eighty recipients(More)
AIM To test the hypothesis that the variant UDP-glucuronosyltransferase 1A1 (UGT1A1) gene, glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency, and thalassemia influence bilirubin metabolism and play a role in the development of cholelithiasis. METHODS A total of 372 Taiwan Chinese with cholelithiasis who had undergone cholecystectomy and 293 healthy(More)
The 1D complex [(CuL0.5H2O)⋅H2O]n (1) (H4L = 2,2'-bipyridine-3,3',6,6'-tetracarboxylic acid) undergoes an irreversible thermally triggered single-crystal-to-single-crystal (SCSC) transformation to produce the 3D anhydrous complex [CuL0.5]n (2). This SCSC structural transformation was confirmed by single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis, thermogravimetric(More)
OBJECTIVES   To investigate the difference of bilirubin concentrations between α- and β-thalassemia carriers and the role of variation status in the UDP-glucuronosyltransferase (UGT) 1A1 gene on such a difference. METHODS   A total of 2713 university freshmen who attended a regular physical examination were enrolled in underwent screenings for(More)
