Comparative analysis of shell color variety and genetic structure among five high-quality freshwater pearl mussel populations.
Four Hyriopsis cumingii populations, a breeding population (BP), a cultured population (FP), two wild populations from Poyang Lake (PY) and Dongting Lake (DT), and an H. schlegelii population were collected (JX), and the first filial generations (F1) were bred synchronously. The shell nacre polymorphisms, population genetic diversity, and genetic structures of the F1 of each population were ... more
Genetic polymorphisms in extracellular superoxide dismutase Leu53Leu, Arg213Gly, and Ala40Thr and susceptibility to type 2 diabetes mellitus.
The most common type of endocrine disease is type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM); genetic factors contribute to the development to T2DM. In this study, we investigated the role of the Leu53Leu, Arg213Gly, and Ala40Thr polymorphisms in extracellular superoxide dismutase (EC-SOD) gene in the development of T2DM in a Chinese population. DNA was extracted from peripheral blood samples obtained from ... more
Genetic characteristics of non-Hodgkin lymphoma in ethnic Uighur people, and their clinical significance.
The incidence of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) in China is increasing and is attracting attention as a topic of research. The percentage of NHL cases in ethnic Uighur people is also gradually increasing. We therefore recruited Uighur people with NHL to investigate the correlation between genetic alternations and clinical/pathological features in an attempt to determine their clinical significance ... more
In this study, we investigated the association between ACTN3 R577X polymorphism and non-acute ankle sprain by measuring the allele frequency and genotype distribution of ACTN3 in a Chinese Han population. We recruited 100 patients with non-acute ankle sprain and 100 healthy controls with no history of ankle injuries. Mass spectrometric analysis of single nucleotide polymorphism was used to ... more
Reproductive outcome of male carriers of chromosomal abnormalities: multidisciplinary approach for genetic counseling and its implications.
Chromosomal abnormality is the most common genetic cause of infertility. Infertility, as a psychological problem, has received an increasing amount of attention. Psychological interventions have been shown to have beneficial effects on infertile patients with chromosomal abnormalities. The present study explored reproductive outcome of male carriers of chromosomal abnormalities, who accepted ... more
Prognostic significance of tumor-associated macrophage infiltration in gastric cancer: a meta-analysis.
Tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs), which play a crucial role in the tumor microenvironment, can be divided into M1 and M2 phenotypes, these phenotypes may exert opposite effects on the prognoses of patients with gastric cancer (GC). The association between TAMs and GC is contentious. Thus, a meta-analysis of 12 studies (incorporating 1388 patients) retrieved from the Cochrane Library, PubMed ... more
Translocation breakpoints of chromosome 4 in male carriers: clinical features and implications for genetic counseling.
Cytogenetic analysis remains a powerful and cost-effective technology, and has wide applicability in genetic counseling for infertile males. Chromosomal rearrangements are thought to be one of the major genetic factors that influence male infertility. Some carriers with balanced reciprocal translocation have been identified as having oligozoospermia or azoospermia, and there is an association ... more
Complete trisomy 14 mosaicism is a rare chromosome disorder and was first reported in 1970. We describe a case of a male neonate who presented complete trisomy 14 mosaicism in only 4% of the cells from peripheral blood. A nineteen-day-old male neonate was born as result of the second pregnancy. The infant was delivered by cesarean section due to gestational hypertension and chronic fetal ... more
Investigation on the association between IL-10 C819T gene polymorphisms and susceptibility to gastric cancer.
We conducted a case-control study to investigate the association between the interleukin-10 (IL-10) C819T polymorphism and susceptibility to gastric cancer in a Chinese population. A total of 157 patients with gastric cancer and 249 controls were consecutively enrolled from the Guizhou Provincial People's Hospital between October 2012 and February 2015. The polymerase chain reaction- ... more
Association between IL18-607C/A and -137G/C polymorphisms and susceptibility to non-small cell lung cancer in a Chinese population.
Lung cancer is one of the main causes of cancer-related mortality in males and females worldwide. A pleiotropic effect has been observed in the interleukin 18 gene (IL18); its effects include the activation of natural killer cell cytotoxicity and the promotion of the Th1 immune response through the alteration of the expression of interferon-γ and TNF-α in humans. IL18 is therefore involved in ... more
