②The umbilical blood lead level of 128 neonates was (0.17±0.13) μmol/L, which was(0.17±0.12) μmol/L in males and (0.17 ±0.15) μmol/L in females, and there were no significant differences between two sexes (t=0.65 P=0.54).
After taking account of gender, age and pubertal development, the partial correlation analysis showed that the amount of components of MS and HOMA-IR were positively correlated with SI (both P values were less than 0.05).
For comparison, 37 non-dialysis patients with similar Ccr of the same age and gender served as controls.
It is specially noted that the repertoires of natural autoantibodies are surprisingly constant in healthy persons, independent of gender and age, and characterized by only minimal individual peculiarities (individual immune fingerprints).
The data suggest the mapped element to participate in gender differentiation of the expression of the Ste1 and Ste2 genes.
This increase was found in all forms of β-thalassemia irrespective of gender.
There are two ways for Symplocos laurina to propagate: clonal reproduction and sexual reproduction.
However, in habitats lacking sufficient nutrition and with higher light intensity, survival rates and space-occupying ability of two kinds of seedlings (sexual and asexual produced) were low and the space would be preempted by grown-up plantlets.
A bottleneck in sexual propagation appeared at the stage from seed to seedling, while in clonal propagation it appeared during the period from an asexual plantlet to a ramet.
Different Responses of Sexual and Asexual Reproduction of Arundinella hirta to Flooding
The sexual and asexual reproductive features of the graminoid species Arundinella hirta growing at riversides of the Jialing River were analyzed.
A nonsignificant increase was noted from 1973-1974 to 1982-1983 in the serum lipid profiles; however, a significant increase was observed from 1982-1983 to 1997-1999 in most of the age groups of both sexes.
Mean serum total cholesterol (TC) levels increased significantly (P >amp;lt; 0.05) over the entire study period (overall period covered: 1973-1999) in most age groups of both sexes.
Dragging the perineal gland and leaving the secretion on the substrate was most commonly observed in the animals of both sexes.
Experimental groups included 8-14 adult non-reproducing animals of both sexes kept one per cage or enclosure.
The study reveals the structural and functional indices of left heart chambers at rest and the hemodynamic response to the physical exercise in 194 young athletes of different ages and sexes.
