In this study, we reported one male adult Chinese diagnosed with lipedematous alopecia for the first time. Case presentation A Chinese male, aged 20 years old, admitted to Shandong Provincial ...

Large-scale transcriptome comparison of sunflower genes responsive to Verticillium dahliae

Background Sunflower Verticillium wilt (SVW) is a vascular disease caused by root infection with Verticillium dahliae (V. dahlia). It is a serious threat to the yield and quality of sunflower. However, chemical and agronomic measures for controlling this disease are not effective. The selection of more resistant genotypes is a desirable strategy to reduce contamination. A deeper ...

Non-Enzymatic Depurination of Nucleic Acids: Factors and Mechanisms

Depurination has attracted considerable attention since a long time for it is closely related to the damage and repair of nucleic acids. In the present study, depurination using a pool of 30-nt short DNA pieces with various sequences at diverse pH values was analyzed by High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC). Kinetic analysis results showed that non-enzymatic depurination of ...

A prospective cohort study of prognosis for newly diagnosed epilepsy in east China

Background Limited data are available on the outcome of antiepileptic drug treatment response in patients of Chinese Han ethnicity with newly diagnosed epilepsy. We sought to explore the prognosis with antiepileptic drug treatment and to identify the predictors of poor drug control of seizures in these patients. Methods For at least 2 years, we prospectively followed up a cohort of ...

Photosynthetic responses of C3 and C4 species to seasonal water variability and competition

This study examined the impacts of seasonal water variability and interspecific competition on the photosynthetic characteristics of a C3 (Leymus chinensis) and a C4 (Chloris virgata) grass species. Plants received the same amount of water but in three seasonal patterns, i.e. the one-peak model (more water in the summer than in the spring and autumn), the two-peak model (more water ...
