Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) has shown good search ability on many optimization problems. However, PSO easily suffers from local optima on some complex problems, such as multimodal function problems. This paper presents an improved PSO, namely IPSO, which employs an adaptive chaotic mutation operator. The adaptive mutation adjusts the step size of(More)
OBJECTIVES Transient collagen cross-linking treatment by proanthocyanidins (PA), a natural crosslinker, was proved to increase the cross-linking degree and ultimate tensile strength of demineralised dentin. The present study aimed to investigate whether transient pretreatment by PA-based preconditioner can improve the resin-dentin bonds of various etch and(More)
A simple and highly safe poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-R-3-hydroxyhexanoate) nanoparticulate delivery system that targets different cell types is developed. A sub-cytotoxic level of polyethylenimine coat mediates universal cell targeting. Internalized nanoparticles traffic along endolysosomal compartments, endoplasmic reticulum and the Golgi complex.(More)
OBJECTIVE High fluoride can induce stress-mediated apoptosis and degradation of ameloblasts. Fas ligand (FasL) has been regarded as a key regulator in intracellular responses for stress-induced apoptosis in reproductive or cancerous cell lineages. The objective of this study is to explore the role of FasL in the regulation of ameloblast ultrastructure(More)
The objectives of this study are to establish the in vitro culture system for rat primary ameloblast and to investigate the effects of fluoride on cell viability, apoptosis, and ameloblastin (AMBN) secretion of primary rat ameloblast in vitro. Ameloblast was isolated from the tooth germ of the maxillomandibular molar and cultured in vitro. Cells were(More)
Target identification of bioactive compounds within the native cellular environment is important in biomedical research and drug discovery, but it has traditionally been carried out in vitro. Information about how such molecules interact with their endogenous targets (on and off) is currently highly limited. An ideal strategy would be one that recapitulates(More)
Blood vessels normally maintain stereotyped lumen diameters and their stable structures are crucial for vascular function. However, very little is known about the molecular mechanisms controlling the maintenance of vessel diameters and the integrity of endothelial cells. We investigated this issue in zebrafish embryos by a chemical genetics approach. Small(More)
CONTEXT Iodine nutrition is a global event, especially for pregnant women. OBJECTIVE To develop applicable index of iodine intake for population during pregnancy. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS From 2012 to 2014, pregnant women at less than 8 weeks of gestation (n = 222) and reproductive-age women (n = 827) participated in this study. The pregnant(More)
Selective inhibitors of the human serotonin transporter (hSERT) have been first-line treatment against depression for several decades. Recently, vortioxetine was approved as a new therapeutic option for the treatment of depression. Vortioxetine represents a new class of antidepressant drugs with a multimodal pharmacological profile that in addition to(More)
