The formation of the Mekong-Salween Divide and climatic oscillations in Pleistocene were the main drivers for the contemporary diversity and genetic structure of plants in the Himalaya-Hengduan Mountains (HHM). To identify the relative roles of the two historical events in shaping population history of plants in HHM, we investigated the phylogeographic(More)
Correction After the publication of this work [1], we noticed that we had incorrectly used the term 'OGX-011'. All instances of OGX-011 in the manuscript should be changed to ' ASO-CLU'. We apologise to the readers and OncoGenex Technologies for this oversight and any negative effects that may have resulted from it. which permits unrestricted use,(More)
OBJECTIVE To measure clusterin expression in pancreatic cancer tissues and cell lines and to evaluate whether clusterin confers resistance to gmcitabine in pancreatic cancer cells. METHODS Immunohistochemistry for clusterin was performed on 50 primary pancreatic cancer tissues and 25 matched backgrounds, and clusterin expression in 5 pancreatic cancer(More)
Veratrilla baillonii Franch is an important Chinese medicinal herb for treating liver-related diseases, which has been over-collected in the recent decades. However, the effective conservation and related population genetic study has been hindered because of the lack of genome sequences and genetic markers in the natural population. We have conducted(More)
It is generally accepted that dioecious plants occur more frequently in dry and nutrient-poor habitats, suggesting that abiotic stress factors could contribute to evolution of dioecy from hermaphrodite. Therefore, experimental investigations on the responses of subdioecious species, a special sexual system comprising male, female, and hermaphrodite plants,(More)
It has been advocated that variation in resting metabolic rate (RMR) may affect the reproductive performance of female animals. In order to investigate the relationships between RMR and reproductive output in lactating Eothenomys miletus, body mass, RMR, food intake, litter size and mass, as well as the weight of visceral organs and gastrointestinal tract(More)
Variations in environmental factors instigate significant changes in the physiology and behavior of animals, necessary for their survival. The present study investigated the hypothesis that ambient temperature is a cue capable of inducing changes in body mass, energy intake, and thermogenic capacity. Moreover, the current study determined the potential role(More)
