INTRODUCTION: Susceptibility mapping is emerging as a powerful tool to utilize imaging phase to visualize the delicate anatomical details of the human brain. The application of susceptibility mapping in the study of gray matter, especially the iron rich deep nuclei, has been well demonstrated in previous studies. In addition to gray matter, susceptibility(More)
Mobile Ad-hoc network is a temporary network of mobile nodes where mobile nodes communicate with each other through wireless links with no fixed infrastructure & no centralized control. Each mobile node in such a scenario acts as both a router & host. Nodes within each other's radio range communicate directly, while those other nodes that are far apart(More)
Maternal inheritance of sugars and acids in peach fruit were investigated during two successive years using reciprocal populations derived from ‘low acid’ (LA) flat peach ‘Zaolupan’ and non-LA round peach ‘Zaoxing’. The reciprocal populations segregated into LA round, LA flat, non-LA round and non-LA flat-fruited offspring. Generally, the reciprocal(More)
Inheritance of grape berry volatile compounds was studied in the half-sib populations of ‘Jingxiu’ × ‘Muscat of Alexandria’ and ‘Jingxiu’ × ‘Xiangfei’ during two successive years. Twenty-two volatile compounds were identified via GC–MS. Monoterpenes were detected in the paternal parents ‘Muscat of Alexandria’ and ‘Xiangfei’, which were Muscat grapes, but(More)
Low sink demand provided by pod removal and stem girdling of beans (Vicia faba, cv. Daqingshan) (-Sink) induced a significantly lower net photosynthetic rate (P n), stomatal conductance (g s), internal CO2 concentration (C i), and transpiration rate (E) compared with pod and root sink retention (CK). This depression in P n was due to stomatal limitation.(More)
SRY-related high-mobility-group box 9 (Sox9) gene is a cartilage-specific transcription factor that plays essential roles in chondrocyte differentiation and cartilage formation. The aim of this study was to investigate the feasibility of genetic delivery of Sox9 to enhance chondrogenic differentiation of human umbilical cord blood-derived mesenchymal stem(More)
