The complete mitochondrial genome of the cotton-melon aphid, Aphis gossypii Glover, was sequenced using a combination of high-throughput sequencing, traditional PCR amplification, and Sanger sequencing. The genome is 15,869 bp in length, and contains 37 typical coding genes, one non-coding AT-rich region, and a repeat region found exclusively in aphids. The(More)
Previous research has shown that ozone reactions on surface-sorbed D-limonene can promote gas phase secondary organic aerosol (SOA) formation indoors. In this work, we conducted 13 steady state chamber experiments to measure the SOA formation entirely initiated by ozone reactions with squalene sorbed to glass, at chamber ozone of 57e500 ppb for two relative(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the biological role and molecular mechanism of the deleted in liver cancer-1 (DLC-1) gene in human colon cancer growth and invasion. Recombinant lentiviral vectors encoding the DLC-1 gene were constructed for transfection into the human colon cancer cell line SW480. Real-time quantitative polymerase chain(More)
Abstract Gaussian Process (GP) regression models typically assume that residuals are Gaussian and have the same variance for all observations. However, applications with input-dependent noise (heteroscedastic residuals) frequently arise in practice, as do applications in which the residuals do not have a Gaussian distribution. In this paper, we propose a GP(More)
AIMS Five sphingosine-1-phosphate receptors (S1PR): S1PR1, S1PR2, S1PR3, S1PR4 and S1PR5 (S1PR1-5) have been shown to be involved in the proliferation and progression of various cancers. However, none of the S1PRs have been systemically investigated. In this study, we performed immunohistochemistry (IHC) for S1PR1-S1PR5 on different tissues, in order to(More)
The underlying mechanism of isoflurane-induced cognitive dysfunction in older individuals is unknown. In this study, the effects of isoflurane exposure on the hippocampal blood-brain barrier (BBB) in aged rats were investigated because it was previously shown that BBB disruption involves in cognitive dysfunction. Twenty-month-old rats randomly received 1.5%(More)
AIM Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is the most frequent cause of end-stage renal disease. The activation of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) and lipid disorders are major risk factors in progressive chronic kidney disease. Inhibition of the RAS is one of the most widely used therapies to treat chronic kidney disease. But its effect is not sufficient, and(More)
With the combination of crop model and climate mode, this paper simulated and predicted the effects of climate change on the winter wheat production of North China in future 100 years. The results showed that from 2000 to 2004, the variation trend of simulated winter wheat production in North China was accordant with the measured one, and the difference of(More)
