The majority of cloned plant disease resistance genes (R genes) encode a nucleotide binding site (NBS) and a leucine-rich repeat (LRR) domain. In this study, to better understand the R genes in white poplar, 59 resistance gene analogues (RGAs) were identified from a triploid white poplar [(Populus tomentosa x Populus bolleana) x P. tomentosa], based on(More)
Immunodysregulation, polyendocrinopathy, enteropathy, X-linked (IPEX) syndrome is a rare X-linked recessive disorder causing life-threatening systemic autoimmunity because of immunodysregulation. The FOXP3 gene had been reported as the responsible gene, which was critical for the functions of CD4(+) CD25(+) FOXP3(+) regulatory T cells (Tregs) and(More)
The study aimed to explore the feasibility of posterior maxillectomy reconstruction by transport distraction in a primate model. In each of 14 male adult rhesus monkeys, posterior partial maxillectomy was performed on one side of maxilla to create a posterior maxillary deflect. Immediately after the maxillectomy, a dentoalveolar segment anterior to the(More)
A full-length cDNA, designated as the Populus tomentosa disease resistance-like 01 (PtDrl01) gene, was isolated from triploid white poplar [(Populus tomentosa × P. bolleana) × P. tomentosa]. The protein thought to be produced by the PtDrl01 gene contains a nuclear localisation sequence (NLS), a toll/interleukin-1 receptor (TIR) homologue region, a(More)
Congenital agammaglobulinemia is a humoral primary immunodeficiency and affected patients have extremely low levels of peripheral B cells and profound deficiency of all immunoglobulin isotypes. Mutations of the Bruton's tyrosine kinase (BTK) gene are responsible for most of the congenital agammaglobulinemia. In this study, the phenotypes of congenital(More)
BACKGROUND Osteosarcoma is an aggressive cancerous neoplasm arising from primitive transformed cells of mesenchymal origin that exhibit osteoblastic differentiation and produce malignant osteoid. With the rapid development of tumor molecular biology, gene and viral therapy, a highly promising strategy for the treatment, has shown some therapeutic effects.(More)
Immunohistochemical localization of estrogen receptors (ER) using specific monoclonal antibody to human ER, H222, with ABC methods were performed on frozen sections of 22 endometrial carcinoma specimens. Specific nuclear staining of ER was observed in most epithelial, stromal and malignant cells while specific cytoplasmic staining was not observed. ER(More)
Localized hyperthermic solidification therapy employs a high temperature of around 65 degrees C to induce biological heat effects for the solidification and inactivation of the cells of visceral cancers without affecting the physiological processes of the body or any of the viscera. This technique was used in combination with surgical resection to treat 39(More)
Using specific monoclonal antibody to human estrogen receptors (ER), monoclonal antibody H222, with an avidin-biotin-peroxidase complex method, immunohistochemical localization of ER was performed on formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues of 42 endometrial carcinomas. The paraffin sections were preceded by trypsin treatment to expose antigenic sites.(More)
PURPOSE When fossil fuels on the Earth are used up, which kind of green energy can be used to replace them? Do every bioenergy generation or crop food chain results in environmental pollution? These questions are major concerns in a world facing restricted supplies of energy and food as well as environmental pollutions. To alleviate these issues, option(More)
