Overview on the recent study of antimicrobial peptides: Origins, functions, relative mechanisms and application
Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs), which are produced by several species including insects, other animals, micro-organisms and synthesis, are a critical component of the natural defense system. With the… Expand
Nucleosomes Suppress Spontaneous Mutations Base-Specifically in Eukaryotes
Nucleosome Maps and Mutation Understanding the processes governing the accumulation of mutations impacts many facets of evolutionary biology. Combining data from a mutation accumulation experiment in… Expand
Comparison of Bacterial Diversity in Wheat Bran and in the Gut of Larvae and Newly Emerged Adult of Musca domestica (Diptera: Muscidae) by use of Ethidium Monoazide Reveals Bacterial Colonization
ABSTRACT The objective of the current study is to investigate the bacterial colonization within the gut of the house fly, Musca domestica L. (Diptera: Muscidae), at the larval stage and the bacterial… Expand
Characterization of Nestin-positive stem Leydig cells as a potential source for the treatment of testicular Leydig cell dysfunction
The ability to identify and isolate lineage-specific stem cells from adult tissues could facilitate cell replacement therapy. Leydig cells (LCs) are the primary source of androgen in the mammalian… Expand

Nerve growth factor (NGF) has been reported to be involved in male reproductive physiology. However, few reports have described the activity of NGF during Leydig cell development. The objective of… Expand
Comparison of cell types in the rat Leydig cell lineage after ethane dimethanesulfonate treatment.
The objective of this study was to purify cells in the Leydig cell lineage following regeneration after ethane dimethanesulfonate (EDS) treatment and compare their steroidogenic capacity. Regenerated… Expand
Comparison of TNM staging systems for nasopharyngeal carcinoma, and proposal of a new staging system
Background:There are few systematic evaluations regarding the sixth and seventh editions of the UICC/AJCC TNM Staging System (TNM6th, TNM7th) and Chinese 2008 Staging System (TNMc2008) for… Expand
Prognostic value of ABO blood group in southern Chinese patients with established nasopharyngeal carcinoma
Background:ABO blood group is associated with aetiology of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC); however, the effect of it on survival of patients diagnosed with NPC has not been explored.Methods:We… Expand
Nasal delivery of nerve growth factor rescue hypogonadism by up-regulating GnRH and testosterone in aging male mice
Background Nerve growth factor (NGF) plays essential roles in regulating the development and maintenance of central sympathetic and sensory neurons. However, the effects of NGF on hypogonadism remain… Expand
