With the constraints of network topologies and link capacities, achieving the optimal end-to-end throughput in data networks has been known as a fundamental but computationally hard problem. In this paper, we seek efficient solutions to the problem of achieving optimal throughput in data networks, with single or multiple unicast, multicast and broadcast(More)
Halophyte, like Salicornia europaea, could make full use of marginal saline land for carbon fixation. How the photosynthesis of S. europaea is regulated under high salinity implicates a significant aspect to exploit this pioneer plant in future. Measurement of photosynthesis parameters demonstrated the reduction of photosynthesis for the 0 and 800 mM NaCl(More)
OBJECTIVE A systematic review to determine whether the diffusion-weighted (DW) magnetic resonance imaging scan can reliably detect residual or recurrent cholesteatoma after mastoid surgery. DESIGN A systematic review. DATA SOURCES Databases including EMBASE, MEDLINE, CINAHL, Web of Science, and Cochrane Review were searched for studies published without(More)
PURPOSE This study was to investigate the clinicopathologic significance and potential role of HOXB7 in the development and progression of colorectal cancer (CRC). EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN The relationship between HOXB7 expression and clinical characteristics of CRC was analyzed in 224 paraffin-embedded archived CRC specimens by immunohistochemistry (IHC). The(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate variants in the LRPAP1, CTSH, LEPREL1, ZNF644, SLC39A5, and SCO2 genes in 298 unrelated patients with early-onset high myopia (eoHM). METHODS Genomic DNA from 298 patients with eoHM was analyzed by whole exome sequencing. Variants in LRPAP1, CTSH, LEPREL1, ZNF644, SLC39A5, and SCO2 genes were selected and analyzed with bioinformatics.(More)
PURPOSE Two recent large-scale genome-wide association studies identified significant associations between myopia and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) near the PRSS56, BMP3, KCNQ5, LAMA2, TOX, TJP2, RDH5, ZIC2, RASGRF1, GJD2, RBFOX1, and SHISA6 genes. Our study is to examine whether rare variants in these genes contribute to high myopia. METHODS(More)
The cDNA encoding an extracellular copper zinc superoxide dismutase (LvECSOD) was cloned from the hepatopancreas of white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei. It consisted of 915 bp nucleotides with an open reading frame corresponding to a deduced protein of 178 amino acids. The LvECSOD contains a putative signal peptide of 16 amino acids, two potential N-linked(More)
Leaf morphology is closely associated with cell division. In rice, mutations in Narrow leaf 1 (NAL1) show narrow leaf phenotypes. Previous studies have shown that NAL1 plays a role in regulating vein patterning and increasing grain yield in indica cultivars, but its role in leaf growth and development remains unknown. In this report, we characterized two(More)
Preparative high-speed counter-current chromatography (HSCCC) coupled with evaporative light scattering detection (ELSD) was successfully applied to the isolation and purification of four triterpene saponins from Clematis mandshurica by one-step separation. The solvent system was composed of ethyl acetate-n-butanol-ethanol-0.05% TFA (5:10:2:20, v/v). The(More)
We report three experiments investigating the hypothesis that use of internal visual imagery (IVI) would be superior to external visual imagery (EVI) for the performance of different slalom-based motor tasks. In Experiment 1, three groups of participants (IVI, EVI, and a control group) performed a driving-simulation slalom task. The IVI group achieved(More)
