N-Myristoyltransferase (NMT) catalyses the attachment of the 14-carbon saturated fatty acid, myristate, to the amino-terminal glycine residue of a subset of eukaryotic proteins that function in multiple cellular processes, including vesicular protein trafficking and signal transduction. In these pathways, N-myristoylation facilitates association of(More)
Regenerates were obtained following somatic hybridization between tall wheatgrass (Agropyron elongatum) and bread wheat (Triticum aestivum cv. Jinan177) protoplasts. Two lines (CU and XI) were self-fertile in the first (R0) and subsequent (R1 and R2) generations. The phenotype of each R1 population was uniform. All CU progeny were phenotypically similar to(More)
The p53 pathway is a central mediator of the apoptotic response. ASPP2/(53BP2L) (apoptosis-stimulating protein of p53 2, also known as 53BP2L) enhances apoptosis through selective stimulation of p53 transactivation of proapoptotic target genes. Although the Rb/E2F pathway regulates ASPP2/(53BP2L) transcription, the complex mechanisms controlling(More)
Cimicifugae Rhizoma, mainly originated from C. acerina, C. dahurica, C. foetida, C. heracleifolia, C. racemosa and C. simplex, has long been used in traditional medicine system. During the past 45 years, a lot of efforts have been dedicated to the studies on their bioactive constituents, pharmacological effects and clinical uses, and a variety of biological(More)
The genetic diversity analysis of 90 barley samples, including 45 wild close relatives of barley from the Tibet region of China and 45 wild accessions from different countries throughout the Middle East, were carried out using ISSR and SSR markers. The results showed that Tibetan wild close relatives of barley had a higher genetic diversity than those from(More)
BACKGROUND Hallux valgus (HV) is one of the most common deformities in podiatric and orthopedic practice. Plantar pressure technology has been widely used in studying the pressure distribution in HV patients for better assessment to plan interventions. However, previous studies produced an array of controversial findings and most of them only focused on the(More)
The prevalence of cerebral palsy (CP) shows little temporal or geographic variation and is associated with preterm birth, maternal/fetal infection/inflammation, and fetal growth restriction (IUGR), a potential surrogate for chronic fetal hypoxemia (CHX). We previously demonstrated CHX causes a fetal inflammatory response syndrome (FIRS). Herein, we test the(More)
β-catenin plays an important role in colorectal tumorigenesis. Relatively little is known about the relationship between β-catenin overexpression and liver metastasis. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether nuclear β-catenin overexpression in colorectal cancer is associated with synchronous liver metastasis. The β-catenin expression in tumor(More)
UNLABELLED Intrahepatic heterotopic pancreas is rarely reported in the literature. Here, we report a case of a 39-year-old male with intrahepatic heterotopic pancreas associated with primary cholesterol hepatolithiasis. Computed tomography (CT) scans revealed multiple cholesterol stones in intrahepatic bile ducts of the left lobe concomitant with(More)
A liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) method for the identification and quantification of chlormequat (CQ) and mepiquat (MQ) in source waters with high sensitivity and specificity was established using WCX cartridges (150 mg/6 mL) for pre-concentration of the samples and using the CAPCELL PAK CR 1:4 (2.0 mm×150 mm 5 μm, SCX:C18=1:4) column(More)
