This paper presents the wireless channel characteristics and network deployment in the mine. Our experiments on MicaZ in the tunnel proved that wireless network sensors (WSN) working on 2.4GHz have great potential in the mine. A new radio propagation model for the mine is built in NS based on packet reception rate (PRR), path-loss exponent and shadowing(More)
PURPOSE The Paraoxonase 1 (PON1) has been studied as a potential candidate gene for Parkinson's disease risk, but direct evidence from genetic association studies remains inconclusive. We performed a meta-analysis pooling data from all relevant studies in order to determine the effects of two PON 1 polymorphisms (L55M and Q192R) on Parkinson's disease. (More)
Deubiquitinating enzymes (DUBs) regulate diverse cellular functions by their activity of cleaving ubiquitin from specific protein substrates. Ubiquitin-Specific Protease 46 (USP46) has recently been identified as a quantitative trait gene responsible for immobility in the tail suspension test and forced swimming test in mice. Mice with a lysine codon (Lys(More)
Smoking is considered to be one of the primary causes of atherosclerosis and vascular injury. Previous studies have shown that nicotine in tobacco can lead to vascular inflammation and endothelial dysfunction. Perivascular adipose tissue (PVAT) is known to secrete various types of adipokines to maintain vascular homeostasis. The present study investigated(More)
Cigarette smoking is one of the most important risk factors of atherosclerosis, which can induce endothelial injury. Meanwhile, adipocytes are the main cell type of perivascular adipose tissue (PVAT), the largest endocrine and paracrine organ and direct anatomical connection to adventitia, which may play a key role in the injury of endothelial cells. We(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop a rapid test kit for antibody to HIV by nano immunomagnetic lateral flow method. METHODS A rapid test kit was developed by conjugation of the HIV antigen gp41 and gp36 to 200nm super paramagnetic particles by carbodiimide (EDC) and coating of the HIV antigen gp41 and gp36 to nitrocellulose membrane. Then the kit was evaluated with(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the depression in arteriosclerosis obliterans (ASO) patients and its risk factors. METHODS The self-rating depression scale (SDS) was applied in 228 ASO patients hospitalized in the vascular surgery department of Peking Union Medical College Hospital from March 2010 to October 2011. The risk factors of depression were analyzed by(More)
