Host factors play crucial roles in the replication of plus-strand RNA viruses. In this report, a heat shock protein 90 homologue of Nicotiana benthamiana, NbHsp90, was identified in association with partially purified replicase complexes from BaMV-infected tissue, and shown to specifically interact with the 3' untranslated region (3' UTR) of BaMV genomic(More)
Much interest has focused on the role of microbial layers--biofilms--in stimulating attachment of invertebrates and algae to submerged marine surfaces. We investigated the influence of biofilms on the adhesion strength of settling invertebrates. Larvae of four species of biofouling invertebrate were allowed to attach to test surfaces that were either clean(More)
BACKGROUND Drinking alcohol has a long tradition in Chinese culture. However, data on the prevalence and patterns of alcohol consumption in China, and its main correlates, are limited. METHODS During 2004-08 the China Kadoorie Biobank recruited 512,891 men and women aged 30-79 years from 10 urban and rural areas of China. Detailed information on alcohol(More)
INTRODUCTION Blood pressure is a major cause of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and both may increase as outdoor temperatures fall. However, there are still limited data about seasonal variation in blood pressure and CVD mortality among patients with prior-CVD. METHODS We analysed data on 23 000 individuals with prior-CVD who were recruited from 10 diverse(More)
BACKGROUND Domain-specific physical activities may have different correlates and health effects, but few large studies have examined these questions, especially their separate associations with adiposity. METHODS We analysed cross-sectional data of 466 605 adults without any prior chronic diseases, enrolled during 2004-8, from 10 diverse localities across(More)
BACKGROUND In urban China, more single women are becoming pregnant and resorting to induced abortion, despite the wide availability of temporary methods of contraception. We developed and piloted a workplace-based intervention to promote contraceptive use in unmarried female migrants working in privately owned factories. METHODS Quasi-experimental design.(More)
The objective of the study was to improve the understanding of antibiotic resistance (AR) ecology through characterization of antibiotic-resistant commensal isolates associated with an aquaculture production system. A total of 4767 isolates non-susceptible to sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim (Sul/Tri), tetracycline (Tet), erythromycin (Erm), or cefotaxime(More)
On 15 May 2015 during the 18th Annual American Society of Gene and Cell Therapy (ASGCT) Meeting 1 regulators from the International Pharmaceutical Regulators Forum Gene Therapy Working Group presented current expectations of various international regulatory authorities for preclinical/nonclinical biodistribution (BD) studies. This session began with a(More)
