BACKGROUND Perceptual learning has been documented in adult humans over a wide range of tasks. Although the often-observed specificity of learning is generally interpreted as evidence for training-induced plasticity in early cortical areas, physiological evidence for training-induced changes in early visual cortical areas is modest, despite reports of(More)
Boron (B) deficiency is a worldwide problem, and Brassica napus is one of the most sensitive crops to B deficiency. To better understand the B starvation response of Brassica napus, we conducted a comparative proteomic analysis of seedling stage Brassica napus root between B-sufficient and B-limited conditions: 45 differentially expressed proteins were(More)
Radiation-induced lung injury is a well-described complication of nuclear accidents, marrow-transplant pretreatment and thoracic radiotherapy. The mechanism is complex and no special therapy for it is available at present. To study radiation pulmonary injury following heavy ion radiotherapy for thoracic tumors, Kunming mice were randomly divided into 4(More)
The major quantitative trait locus (QTL) qHS2.09 plays an important role in resistance to head smut during maize breeding and production. In this study, a near-isogenic line (NIL), L34, which harbors the major QTL qHS2.09 in bin 2.09, was developed using a resistant donor 'Mo17' in a susceptible genetic background 'Huangzao4'. Using 18,683 genome-wide(More)
Plant architecture attributes, such as plant height, ear height, and internode number, have played an important role in the historical increases in grain yield, lodging resistance, and biomass in maize (Zea mays L.). Analyzing the genetic basis of variation in plant architecture using high density QTL mapping will be of benefit for the breeding of maize for(More)
INTRODUCTION This study aimed to compare the efficacy and safety of quadruple therapy containing doxycycline and routine quadruple therapy for Helicobacter (H.) pylori rescue eradication in patients who had failed the one-week triple therapy. METHODS Patients who failed the first-line eradication therapy were allocated into two groups. Group A patients (n(More)
Boron (B) is essential for the normal growth and development of oilseed rape. To gain better insight into the metabolic processes of Brassica napus in response to B starvation, a time course proteomics analysis of roots under conditions of hydroponic cultivation was carried out. Forty-six differentially expressed proteins were identified by MALDI-TOF/TOF(More)
Maize rough dwarf disease (MRDD) is a viral infection that results in heavy yield losses in maize worldwide, particularly in the summer maize-growing regions of China. MRDD is caused by the Rice black-streaked dwarf virus (RBSDV). In the present study, analyses of microRNAs (miRNAs), the degradome, and transcriptome sequences were used to elucidate the(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish a highly sensitive screening method for phytoestrogen active constituents and to primarily screen the phytoestrogenic active constituents from the chickpea extractions by the method. METHOD Human ERalpha cDNA was cloned using MCF-7 total RNA as the template by RT-PCR and then was constructed into a pcDNA3 and named as pERalpha. The(More)
Head smut is a disease caused severely yield losses both in commercial maize and seed production in the spring maize growing region in northeastern China. In previous study, we located the major QTL qHS2.09 between SNP PZE-102187486 and PZE-102188421 by combined linkage and association mapping within an interval of ≈1.00 Mb. In this study, we report the(More)
