Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic, potentially fatal systemic autoimmune disease characterized by the production of autoantibodies against a wide range of self-antigens. To investigate the role of the 5-hmC DNA modification with regard to the onset of SLE, we compared the levels 5-hmC between SLE patients and normal controls. Whole blood was(More)
Down sydrome (DS) is a relatively frequent chromosomal disorder, which has no safe and effective method of prenatal diagnosis to date. The present study was designed to identify DS biomarkers. We quantified the changes in the umbilical cord blood protein levels between DS-affected and healthy (control) pregnant females using isobaric tags for relative and(More)
Ultrafine particles with a diameter below 1 µm are strongly linked to traffic and industrial emissions, causing a growing global health concern. In order to reveal the characteristics of ultrafine particles in central China, which makes up the sparse research in industrial cities of a developing country, particle number concentrations (PNC) together with(More)
To construct an Escherichia coli strain capable of producing riboflavin with high titer and yield. A low copy number plasmid pLS01 containing a riboflavin operon under the control of a constitutive promoter was constructed and introduced into Escherichia coli MG1655. Subsequently, the pfkA, edd and ead genes were disrupted, and the resulting strain LS02T(More)
Membranous nephropathy (MN) is a common cause of nephrotic syndrome in adults and the second leading cause of end-stage renal disease due to primary glomerulonephritis. The aim of the present study was to identify potential biomarkers of MN and further characterize these proteins by Gene Ontology (GO) analysis. Isobaric tags for relative and absolute(More)
