Mesodermal expression of Tbx1 is necessary and sufficient for pharyngeal arch and cardiac outflow tract development
The development of the segmented pharyngeal apparatus involves complex interaction of tissues derived from all three germ layers. The role of mesoderm is the least studied, perhaps because of itsExpand
Genome-wide analysis of the AP2/ERF gene family in Populus trichocarpa.
Populus is a model system for investigating the wood development, crown formation, and disease resistance in perennial plants. AR2/ERF is a large family of transcription factors in plant, encodingExpand
Mental Health Problems among Children One-Year after Sichuan Earthquake in China: A Follow-up Study
Background On May 12, 2008, a destructive earthquake registering 8.0 on the Richter scale struck Sichuan Province, southwest China. Beichuan County was the epicenter which was one of the areas nearlyExpand
Psychometric properties of the 10‐item Connor–Davidson Resilience Scale in Chinese earthquake victims
Aim:  Resilience refers to positive adaption in the face of stress or trauma. Assessing resilience is crucial in trauma‐related research and practice. The 10‐item Connor–Davidson Resilience ScaleExpand
Structural characterization of the predominant family of histidine kinase sensor domains.
Histidine kinase (HK) receptors are used ubiquitously by bacteria to monitor environmental changes, and they are also prevalent in plants, fungi, and other protists. Typical HK receptors have anExpand
Longevity–fertility trade‐offs in the tephritid fruit fly, Anastrepha ludens, across dietary‐restriction gradients
Although it is widely known that dietary restriction (DR) not only extends the longevity of a wide range of species but also reduces their reproductive output, the interrelationship of DR, longevityExpand
Mental Health Problems among the Survivors in the Hard-Hit Areas of the Yushu Earthquake
Background On April 14, 2010, an earthquake registering 7.1 on the Richter scale shook Qinghai Province in southwest China. The earthquake caused numerous casualties and much damage. The epicenter,Expand
A novel micromanipulation technique for measuring the bursting strength of single mammalian cells
SummaryInformation about the bursting strength of animal cells is essential if the mechanisms of cell damage in bioreactors are to be understood, and if cell mechanical properties are ever to beExpand
Molecular Signatures of Major Depression
Summary Adversity, particularly in early life, can cause illness. Clues to the responsible mechanisms may lie with the discovery of molecular signatures of stress, some of which include alterationsExpand
Diagnostic Value of Urinary Kidney Injury Molecule 1 for Acute Kidney Injury: A Meta-Analysis
Background Urinary Kidney Injury Molecule 1 (KIM-1) is a proximal tubular injury biomarker for early detection of acute kidney injury (AKI), with variable performance characteristics depending onExpand
