A cross-sectional study of 25 sample sets (each set consisted of maternal serum and cord whole blood) from 50 pregnant women in zone A (n = 25 from exposed group) and zone B (n = 25 from reference group) was conducted to examine the association between thyroid hormone (TH) levels and PBDE, PCDD/F, and PCB exposures. Thyroid hormones TT3, TT4, and TSH levels(More)
Doxorubicin (DOX), an anticancer drug, causes a dose-dependent cardiotoxicity. Some evidence suggests that female children have an increased risk for DOX-mediated cardiac damage. To determine whether the iron chelator dexrazoxane (DXR) could reduce DOX-induced cardiotoxicity in the young, we injected day 10 neonate female and male rat pups with a single(More)
Simulation experiment is an important means of analyzing and assessing the security of SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system, however, the existing simulation environments have some limitations in flexibility and extensibility. According to the type of industrial infrastructure and the structure of SCADA system, the abstract models of(More)
Thirteen pure strains that possessed high methyl red (MR)-decolorizing ability were isolated from dye-contaminated water. Each isolate was identified by 16S rDNA sequencing. The results reveal that all of the isolated strains were facultative anaerobic bacteria. Two novel bacterial consortia (AE and AN), which could decolorize MR under aerobic and anaerobic(More)
We have demonstrated that carbon-microelectromechanical systems ~C-MEMS!, in which patterned photoresist is pyrolyzed in inert environment at high temperature, constitutes a powerful approach to building 3D carbon microelectrode arrays for 3D microbattery applications. High aspect ratio carbon posts ~.10:1! are achieved by pyrolyzing SU-8 negative(More)
Wernicke encephalopathy (WE), a neurological disorder caused by thiamine deficiency (TD), is characterized by structural damage in brain regions that include the thalamus and cerebral cortex. The basis for these lesions is unclear, but may involve a disturbance of glutamatergic neurotransmission. We have therefore investigated levels of the astrocytic(More)
REPRESSOR OF SILENCING 1 (ROS1) is a DNA demethylation enzyme that was previously identified during a genetic screen for the silencing of both RD29A-LUC and 35S-NPTII transgenes on a T-DNA construct. Here we performed a genetic screen to identify additional mutants in which the 35S-NPTII transgene is silenced. We identified several alleles of ros1 and of(More)
Astaxanthin (3,3'-dihydroxy-beta,beta-carotene-4,4'-dione) is widely used as important colorant in the aquaculture feed industry, and as nutraceuticals in human health products. Synthetic all-trans-astaxanthin consists of a mixture of a pair of enantiomers (3R,3'R and 3S,3'S) and a mesoform (3R,3'S). A high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method(More)
