The Impact of Egg Nutrient Composition and Its Consumption on Cholesterol Homeostasis

Nutrient deficiencies and excess are involved in many aspects of human health. As a source of essential nutrients, eggs have been used worldwide to support the nutritional needs of human societies. On the other hand, eggs also contain a significant amount of cholesterol, a lipid molecule that has been associated with the development of cardiovascular diseases. Whether the...

Vitamin D status and epigenetic-based mortality risk score: strong independent and joint prediction of all-cause mortality in a population-based cohort study

BackgroundVitamin D deficiency and insufficiency have been established to be strongly associated with increased overall mortality and deaths from specific aging-related diseases. Recently, an epigenetic “mortality risk score” (MS) based on whole blood DNA methylation at the 10 most prominent mortality-related cytosine-phosphate-guanine (CpG) sites has also been found to be highly...

Litterfall and litter chemistry change over time in an old-growth temperate forest, northeastern China

• Litterfall and litter chemistry are key factors for the assessment of forest floor properties. A long-term study on litterfall, litter chemistry and forest basal areas was carried out in an old-growth temperate forest, northeastern China.• The objective of this study was to test whether forest floor properties in the old-growth forest remain relatively constant.• Litterfall...

Glycan binding patterns of human rotavirus P[10] VP8* protein

Rotaviruses (RVs) are a major cause of acute children gastroenteritis. The rotavirus P [10] belongs to P[I] genogroup of group A rotaviruses that mainly infect animals, while the rotavirus P [10] was mainly identified from human infection. The rotavirus P [10] is an unusual genotype and the recognition pattern of cellular receptors remains unclear. We expressed and purified the...

Can Township-County Readmission (TCR) lower Costs of County Inpatient compared with Single County Inpatient?

Introduction: China has been trying to enhance service collaboration between different levels of medical institutions to lower patient flow and cut down medical expenditure. However, the outcome was poor. Township-County Readmission (TCR) means a patient is firstly admitted to a township hospital and then a county hospital within 30 days for the same disease. Our aim is to...

Changes in L4/5 Intervertebral Foramen Bony Morphology with Age

The purpose of this study was to explore the morphological changes in L4/5 intervertebral foramen with age using a digital method. The closed boundaries of the intervertebral foramen (IGES) in different sagittal slices (inside, middle and outside) were obtained from Mimics, and then imported to a custom-written program, which provided quantitative distance between the nerve root...

Robust solutions to box-constrained stochastic linear variational inequality problem

We present a new method for solving the box-constrained stochastic linear variational inequality problem with three special types of uncertainty sets. Most previous methods, such as the expected value and expected residual minimization, need the probability distribution information of the stochastic variables. In contrast, we give the robust reformulation and reformulate the...

Characterization of spontaneously-developed non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in aged rhesus monkeys

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a global epidemic afflicting 20–30% in the general population. The animal model of NAFLD available at the present are less clinically relevant. In this study. We aimed to establish a NAFLD model of rhesus monkeys and develop an ultrasonographic steatosis score (USS) system to grade hepatic steatosis in this model. We performed hepatic...

Strategies to enhance the production of pinoresinol and its glucosides by endophytic fungus (Phomopsis sp. XP-8) isolated from Tu-chung bark

To improve the production yield of (+)-pinoresinol (Pin), (+)-pinoresinol monoglucoside (PMG), and (+)-pinoresinol diglucoside (PDG), different methods were conducted, including co-culture with resveratrol-producing Alternaria sp. MG1 spores and addition of Tu-chung in a medium at the start of cultivation, ultrasound treatment (40 kHZ, 10 min) on 5-day culture, and addition of...
