BACKGROUND Fat mass and obesity-associated gene (FTO) has been associated with obesity, especially the common variant rs9939609. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a complex endocrine-metabolic disorder and over 50% of patients are overweight/obese. Thus FTO is a potential candidate gene for PCOS but their relationship is confusing and remains to be(More)
Our previous genome-wide association study identified LH/choriogonadotropin receptor (LHCGR) as a susceptibility gene for polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). The objective of this study was to determine whether the genetic or epigenetic components associated with LHCGR participate in the pathogenesis of PCOS. The exons and flanking regions of LHCGR were(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the expression of HIF-1alpha and SDF-1/CXCR4 in repopulating H22 tumor tissue and the mechanism of angiogenesis of polypeptide extract from scorpion venom (PESV) during chemotherapy treatment. METHOD The expression of HIF-1alpha and SDF-1/CXCR4 in H22 tumor tissue was monitored by immunohistochemistry, and the expression level was(More)
BACKGROUND Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a complex multifactor disorder and genetic factors have been implicated in its pathogenesis. Our previous genome-wide association study (GWAS) had identified allele frequencies in several single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in gene USP34 (Ubiquitin-Specific Protease 34) were significantly different between(More)
