Intracellular viscosity strongly influences transportation of mass and signal, interactions between the biomacromolecules, and diffusion of reactive metabolites in live cells. Fluorescent molecular rotors are recently developed reagents used to determine the viscosity in solutions or biological fluid. Due to the complexity of live cells, it is important to(More)
Chionanthus retusus (Oleaceae) is a valuable plant species native to eastern Asia. In this study, the complete chloroplast genome of C. retusus was assembled based on next generation sequencing. The complete chloroplast of C. retusus is 155,687 bp in length, which is divided into a large single-copy (LSC) region of 86,499 bp and a small single-copy (SSC)(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this study is to assess standardized histograms of signal intensities of T1 signal and T2 signal on sagittal view without enhancement during (1) acute stage, and (2) convalescence stage of pediatric patients with Enterovirus 71 related brainstem encephalitis (BE), and with respect to (3) healthy normal. METHODS Our subjects(More)
BACKGROUND To report the diversity of MRI features of brainstem encephalitis (BE) induced by Enterovirus 71. This is supported by implementation and testing of our new classification scheme in order to improve the diagnostic level on this specific disease. METHODS Neuroimaging of 91 pediatric patients who got EV71 related BE were hospitalized between(More)
The present work aimed to evaluate 16S rRNA, khe and rpoB gene sequencing for the identification of Klebsiella pneumoniae in comparison with phenotypic methods. Fifteen clinical isolates were examined, which were initially identified as K. pneumoniae subsp. pneumoniae using the automated VITEK 32 system in two hospitals in Enshi City, China. Their identity(More)
Spinal muscular atrophy with respiratory distress type 1 (SMARD1) is a rare autosomal recessive neuromuscular disorder caused by mutations in the IGHMBP2 gene and characterized by life-threatening respiratory distress due to irreversible diaphragmatic paralysis between 6weeks and 6months of age. In this study, we describe a two-month-old boy who presented(More)
Hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD) affects more than one million children, is responsible for several hundred child deaths every year in China and is the cause of widespread concerns in society. Only a small fraction of HFMD cases will develop further into severe HFMD with neurologic complications. A timely and accurate diagnosis of severe HFMD is(More)
