Infection with alphaviruses is common in the Chinese population. Here we report the isolation of a Sindbis-like virus from a pool of Anopheles mosquitoes collected in Xinjiang, China during an arbovirus survey. This virus, designated XJ-160, rapidly produced cytopathic effects on mosquito and hamster cells. In addition, it was lethal to neonatal mice if(More)
Virologic and seroepidemiologic studies were carried out during an epidemic of dengue fever on Hainan Island in 1980. Dengue 3 virus was isolated from 46 of 77 acute phase sera and from 1 of 10 pools of adult Aedes aegypti. Dengue 1 virus virus was isolated from a single acute phase serum. Seroepidemiologic investigations showed that 74% of healthy(More)
The selenium level and activity of glutathione peroxidase in blood of children living in Kaschin-Beck disease (KBD) endemic areas were lower than that in nonendemic areas. KBD children were deficient in selenium, their lipid components, structure and function of the red cell membrane and cartilage tissue were abnormal. That is, the phospholipid (PL) content(More)
The surface properties of metals and metal oxides can be modified by adding a single layer of organic molecules. A most popular route for depositing such a molecular layer is via the formation of self-assembled monolayers (SAMs). The molecules that form SAMs have a functionality which binds to the surface and the adsorption is self-regulated to terminate at(More)
The latest discovery of possible high-temperature superconductivity in the single-layer FeSe film grown on a SrTiO3 substrate has generated much attention. Initial work found that, while the single-layer FeSe/SrTiO3 film exhibits a clear signature of superconductivity, the double-layer film shows an insulating behaviour. Such a marked layer-dependent(More)
Interface enhanced superconductivity at two dimensional limit has become one of most intriguing research directions in condensed matter physics. Here, we report the superconducting properties of ultra-thin FeSe films with the thickness of one unit cell (1-UC) grown on conductive and insulating SrTiO3 (STO) substrates. For the 1-UC FeSe on conductive STO(More)
Self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) of Au-octanethiolate on Au(111) have been studied using scanning tunneling microscopy (STM). Thermal annealing of the dense (square root(3) x square root(3))R30 degrees layer at 353 K for 1 h leads to the formation of a (5 square root(3) x square root(3))R30 degrees striped phase coexisting with the (square root(3) x square(More)
Superconducting and topological states are two most intriguing quantum phenomena in solid materials. The entanglement of these two states, the topological superconducting state, will give rise to even more exotic quantum phenomena. While many materials are found to be either a superconductor or a topological insulator, it is very rare that both states exist(More)
In high-temperature cuprate superconductors, it is now generally agreed that superconductivity is realized by doping an antiferromagnetic Mott (charge transfer) insulator. The doping-induced insulator-to-superconductor transition has been widely observed in cuprates, which provides important information for understanding the superconductivity mechanism. In(More)
The bonding sites for Au-adatom-octanethiolate within the (√3×√3)R30° structure on Au(111) have been investigated with high-resolution scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) imaging. By establishing the relationship between the lateral positions of adsorbates on the top layer of gold and those inside an etch pit, we are able to determine the adsorption(More)
