Statins, which inhibit 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl CoA reductase, have been shown recently to promote proinflammatory responses. We show in this study that both atorvastatin and simvastatin induced proinflammatory responses in mitogen-activated PBMCs by increasing the number of T cells secreting IFN-gamma. This is abolished by the presence of mevalonate,(More)
The aim of this paper is to present some ways of constructing a lattice ordered effect algebra from the given family of MV-algebras. The loop lemma of lattice ordered effect algebras is proved. Then the definitions of Greechie diagrams of effect algebras are given. All these results have generalized those of orthomodular lattices. As applications of loop(More)
Bi-parameter incremental unknowns (IU) alternating directional implicit (ADI) iterative methods are proposed for solving elliptic problems. Condition numbers of the coefficient matrices for these iterative schemes are carefully estimated. Theoretical analysis shows that the condition numbers are reduced significantly by IU method, and the iterative(More)
OBJECTIVE To preliminarily determine the gene mutation frequency and the hotspots in Henan province, we analysed the deafness-related gene mutation in patients with non-syndromic hearing loss (NSHL). METHOD Genomic DNA samples of 100 patients with NSHL in Henan province were extracted from peripheral blood after clinical history inquiry and clinical(More)
Flower-like manganese wads (MWs) were synthesized via a simple and inexpensive ultrasonic irradiation method for the first time. MWs were characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive X-ray and transmission electronic microscopy. The decolorization efficiency of MWs for methylene blue (MB) azo dye was examined as a(More)
In this study, we present techniques for constructing a lattice-ordered effect algebra using a given family of MV-effect algebras. First, we introduce the Greechie diagrams of the pastings of a family of MV-effect algebras. As application of the Greechie diagrams, we provide some sufficient conditions for pasting a lattice-ordered effect algebra using a(More)
