The structure dynamic of ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB) community and the distribution of AOB and nitrite-oxidizing bacteria (NOB) in granular sludge from an anaerobic-aerobic sequencing batch reactor (SBR) were investigated. A combination of process studies, molecular biotechniques and microscale techniques were employed to identify and characterize(More)
INMAP was first identified as an interphase nucleus and mitotic apparatus-associated protein that plays essential roles in the formation of the spindle and cell-cycle progression. Here, we report that INMAP might be conserved from prokaryotes to humans, is a truncated version of the RNA polymerase III subunit B POLR3B, and is up-regulated in several human(More)
Betalains have high nutritional value and bioactivities. Red pulp pitaya (Hylocereus polyrhizus) is the only fruit containing abundant betalains for consumer. However, no information is available about genes involved in betalain biosynthesis in H. polyrhizus. Herein, two cDNA libraries of pitaya pulps with two different coloration stages (white and red pulp(More)
Thermoplastic of carboxy methyl cellulose graft methyl acrylate (CMC-g-MA) using ammonium per sulfate (APS) as an initiator was carried out in an aqueous solution. The percentage grafting percentage (%G) is affected by increasing reaction time, concentration of monomer and initiator, and reaction temperature. These graft copolymers were characterized(More)
It is very difficult to describe a nonstationary random signal, to say nothing of processing it effectively. In recent years, the time-varying parametric model, especially, time-varying auto-regressive parametric model has been used widely. It is well known that a wavelet neural network has very good performance on function approximation. In this paper, the(More)
BACKGROUND Currently, most therapies of postembolization syndrome following transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) aim directly at a single symptom, thus leading to limitations. OBJECTIVES To seek for a systematic approach to prevent and treat the syndrome, we carried out this study to observe the effect of ginsenosides (GS) and dexamethasone(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Dendritic cells (DCs) are a significant contributor to the pathology of numerous chronic inflammatory autoimmune disorders; however, the effects of Corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) on intestinal DCs are poorly understood. In this study, we investigated the role of CRF in alterations of intestinal dendritic cell phenotype and function. (More)
The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the pharmacological effects of Portulaca oleracea L. (Purslane) (PL) on N-nitrosodiethylamine- (NDEA-) induced hepatocellular carcinomas (HCC) and explore its potential mechanism. Mice were randomly assigned to four groups: control group, NDEA group, NDEA + Purslane (100 mg/kg) group, and NDEA + Purslane (200(More)
The service life of the wire rope as the load carrying and towing equipment affects directly the cost and safety in the practice manufacture. Broken wires are the main factor affecting rope life. This paper, according to the monitoring mechanism of magnetic induction, is designed a solenoid-monitoring sensor detecting broken wire. MSP430 is to analyze and(More)
In this paper, we consider an Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing-Code Division Multiplexing (OFDM-CDM) system. The noise reduction method based on Least Squares (LS) is introduced into the OFDM-CDM receiver to improve the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), while the system does not work under full load. In this paper, Walsh code is considered to be used(More)
