Protein dynamics is essential for its function, especially for intramolecular signal transduction. In this work we propose a new concept, energy dissipation model, to systematically reveal protein dynamics upon effector binding and energy perturbation. The concept is applied to better understand the intramolecular signal transduction during allostery of(More)
A novel approach to reveal intramolecular signal transduction network is proposed in this work. To this end, a new algorithm of network construction is developed, which is based on a new protein dynamics model of energy dissipation. A key feature of this approach is that direction information is specified after inferring protein residue-residue interaction(More)
PII protein is one of the largest families of signal transduction proteins in archaea, bacteria, and plants, controlling key processes of nitrogen assimilation. An intriguing characteristic for many PII proteins is that the three ligand binding sites exhibit anticooperative allosteric regulation. In this work, PII protein from Synechococcus elongatus, a(More)
Digital photography is a promised method for estimating the fractal characteristics of leaf veins. In this study, the effects of different threshold levels and image processing methods using Adobe Photoshop software on the fractal dimension values were examined from a digital photo of nectarine leaf. The results showed that the nectarine leaf vein has(More)
The Energetic and Exergetic performances evaluating models were built for a agricultural greenhouse cooling with groundwater-style GSHP system (GSHPs) in Northern China. The Exergy destruction (Ex dest), Exergy efficiency(ε) and coefficient of performance (COP) were estimated and presented based on summer cooling test monitored data and the simulation(More)
Fluent, as one of the commercial CFD packages, the author discussed its application in greenhouse ventilation research. In the paper, the under problems would be expounded: in fluent what models will be used in greenhouse studying, and the details during in these models used, and the comparing of the same style models. The steps to solve the greenhouse(More)
Equations were derived based on the principles of light reflection to optimize the height and angle parameters of the reflective board in real time and location. The optimized parameters were applied to enhance the light intensity inside the lean-to greenhouses in China. The calculated results were significantly correlated to the actual measurements.(More)
A model of heat transfer through greenhouse covering materials was developed in this study. The influences of the thermal properties of covering materials, the construct parameters of greenhouse and the environment inner and outer of greenhouse were completely considered in the model. Heat transfer flux density through covering layer can be simulated and(More)
