Methods Random sampling was carried out in four separated cities in Hainan Province in 2015. All the subjects accomplished the standard questionnaire and ocular examinations. The diagnosis of AMD was ...

The change of serum tumor necrosis factor alpha in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus: A systematic review and meta-analysis

Objective The aim of this study was used meta-analysis to investigate changes of serum tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). Methods Relevant literatures were identified from PubMed, Cochrane Library, CNKI, WanFang and Chinese-Cqvip databases (published from January 1, 1999 to September 30, 2016). Eligible reports were included for ...

An activity-integrated strategy of the identification, screening and determination of potential neuraminidase inhibitors from Radix Scutellariae

Small molecules isolated from herbal medicines (HMs) were identified as the potential neuraminidase inhibitors which are effective in influenza prevention and treatment. Unfortunately, current available screen methods of small molecules isolated from HMs are inefficient and insensitive. Here a novel Ultra Performance Liquid Chromatography coupled with diode-array detectors and ...

iSulf-Cys: Prediction of S-sulfenylation Sites in Proteins with Physicochemical Properties of Amino Acids

Cysteine S-sulfenylation is an important post-translational modification (PTM) in proteins, and provides redox regulation of protein functions. Bioinformatics and structural analyses indicated that S-sulfenylation could impact many biological and functional categories and had distinct structural features. However, major limitations for identifying cysteine S-sulfenylation were ...

High-quality genome sequence of the radioresistant bacterium Deinococcus ficus KS 0460

The genetic platforms of Deinococcus species remain the only systems in which massive ionizing radiation (IR)-induced genome damage can be investigated in vivo at exposures commensurate with cellular survival. We report the whole genome sequence of the extremely IR-resistant rod-shaped bacterium Deinococcus ficus KS 0460 and its phenotypic characterization. Deinococcus ficus KS ...

Stability of sets of stochastic functional differential equations with impulse effect

In this paper, we study the stability of sets for a class of impulsive stochastic functional differential equations. By employing piecewise continuous Lyapunov functions with Razumikhin methods, some sufficient conditions are established to guarantee the stability of sets of impulsive stochastic functional differential equations and we also show that the impulses play an important ...

Ghd2, a CONSTANS-like gene, confers drought sensitivity through regulation of senescence in rice

CONSTANS (CO)-like genes have been intensively investigated for their roles in the regulation of photoperiodic flowering, but very limited information has been reported on their functions in other biological processes. Here, we found that a CO-like gene, Ghd2 (Grain number, plant height, and heading date2), which can increase the yield potential under normal growth condition just ...

Enabling the democratization of the genomics revolution with a fully integrated web-based bioinformatics platform

Continued advancements in sequencing technologies have fueled the development of new sequencing applications and promise to flood current databases with raw data. A number of factors prevent the seamless and easy use of these data, including the breadth of project goals, the wide array of tools that individually perform fractions of any given analysis, the large number of ...

The existence of solutions of q-difference-differential equations

By using the Nevanlinna theory of value distribution, we investigate the existence of solutions of some types of non-linear q-difference differential equations. In particular, we generalize the Rellich–Wittich-type theorem and Malmquist-type theorem about differential equations to the case of q-difference differential equations (system).

On a conjecture of R. Brück and some linear differential equations

In this paper, we mainly investigate the Brück conjecture concerning entire function f and its differential polynomial \(L_1(f)=a_k(z)f^{(k)}+\cdots +a_0(z)f\) sharing an entire function \(\alpha (z)\) with \(\sigma (\alpha )\le \sigma (f)\), by using the theory of complex differential equation.

The pharmacokinetics, bioavailability and excretion of bergapten after oral and intravenous administration in rats using high performance liquid chromatography with fluorescence detection

A sensitive, specific, reproducible and optimized high performance liquid chromatography with fluorescence detection (HPLC-FLD) method for the determination of bergapten in rat plasma was established and applied to the pharmacokinetic and bioavailability study in rat after oral and intravenous administration of bergapten. The method was also successfully applied to the excretion ...

Histologic validation of myocardial fibrosis measured by T1 mapping: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Background Myocardial fibrosis is being increasingly recognised as a common final pathway of a wide range of diseases. Thus, the development of an accurate and convenient method to evaluate myocardial fibrosis is of major importance. Although T1 mapping is a potential alternative for myocardial biopsy, validation studies are limited to small numbers and vary regarding technical ...

Small dense low-density lipoprotein cholesterol was associated with future cardiovascular events in chronic kidney disease patients

Background Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is often comorbid with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Small low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (sdLDL-C) has also been found to increase risk for CVD. The goal of the present study was to determine the nature of the relationship between sdLDL-C concentration and CVD in patients with CKD. Methods One-hundred and forty-five subjects (113 men ...

Modeling of aluminum-silicon irregular eutectic growth by cellular automaton model

Due to the extensive application of Al-Si alloys in the automotive and aerospace industries as structural components, an understanding of their microstructural formation, such as dendrite and (Al+Si) eutectic, is of great importance to control the desirable microstructure, so as to modify the performance of castings. Since previous major themes of microstructural simulation are ...

Serum proteomic-based analysis identifying autoantibodies against PRDX2 and PRDX3 as potential diagnostic biomarkers in nasopharyngeal carcinoma

Background Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is a major head and neck cancer with high occurrence in Southeast Asia and southern China. We aimed to identify autoantibodies that may contribute to early detection of NPC. Methods We used serological proteome analysis to identify candidate autoantibodies against tumor-associated antigens. Levels of autoantibodies and Epstein–Barr virus ...

Synthesis and fungicidal activity of pyrazole derivatives containing 1,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinoline

Background Take-all of wheat, caused by the soil-borne fungus Gaeumannomyces graminis var. tritici, is one of the most important and widespread root diseases. Given that take-all is still hard to control, it is necessary to develop new effective agrochemicals. Pyrazole derivatives have been often reported for their favorable bioactivities. In order to discover compounds with high ...

Effects of Porphyromonas gingivalis LipopolysaccharideTolerized Monocytes on Inflammatory Responses in Neutrophils

Periodontitis is a chronic inflammatory disease induced by bacteria. Exposure of the host to periodontal pathogens and their virulence factors induces a state of hyporesponsiveness to subsequent stimulations, which is termed endotoxin tolerance. The role and mechanism of lipopolysaccharide (LPS)–tolerized monocytes in inflammatory responses in neutrophils are currently unclear. ...

In situ expression of (R)-carbonyl reductase rebalancing an asymmetric pathway improves stereoconversion efficiency of racemic mixture to (S)-phenyl-1,2-ethanediol in Candida parapsilosis CCTCC M203011

Background Candida parapsilosis (R)-carbonyl reductase (RCR) and (S)-carbonyl reductase (SCR) are involved in the stereoconversion of racemic (R,S)-1-phenyl-1,2-ethanediol (PED) to its (S)-isomer. RCR catalyzes (R)-PED to 2-hydroxyacetophenone (2-HAP), and SCR catalyzes 2-HAP to (S)-PED. However, the stereoconversion efficiency of racemic mixture to (S)-PED is not high because of ...
