The period of repair of hepatocytes injured by CCl4 and signaling proteins intrinsic to this period were examined. A 30 kDa polypeptide detected by immunoblot analysis using anti-phosphotyrosine antibody in livers from rats 48 to 72 h after administration of a single dose of CCl4 was identified as galectin-3 induced in cytoplasm of periportal hepatocytes(More)
In this study, nano-TiO(2)-supported activated carbon (TiO(2)/AC) was developed for the microwave (MW) degradation of an azo dye, methyl orange (MO), selected as a model contaminant in aqueous solution. The effects of selected process parameters such as supported TiO(2) content, MW irradiation time, initial MO concentration, catalyst dose, and solution pH(More)
HomeoboxB9 (HOXB9), a nontransforming transcription factor that is overexpressed in multiple tumor types, alters tumor cell fate and promotes tumor progression. However, the role of HOXB9 in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) development has not been well studied. In this paper, we found that HOXB9 is overexpressed in human HCC samples. We investigated HOXB9(More)
Image fusion aims to merge two or more images captured via various sensors of the same scene to construct a more informative image by integrating their details. Generally, such integration is achieved through the manipulation of the representations of the images concerned. Sparse representation plays an important role in the effective description of images,(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the effects of micro-elements fertilizers on the quality and yields of Artemisia annua. METHOD Field experiments were conducted according to the method of random blocks design. After the harvest the yield was calculated and the content of artemisinin was determined. RESULT By applying 0.1%-0.5% Mn and 0.1%-0.5% Zn the dried leaf(More)
Acute phase responses to intragastric administration of a single dose of CCl(4) were examined with albumin mRNA turnover as a marker. Based on the combination of the changes in stability of albumin mRNA and activity of transcription of its gene, the entire course of liver injury was classified into three stages, the first stage for aggravation of injury(More)
Described is the first study on oxidative enantioselective α-fluorination of simple aliphatic aldehydes enabled by N-heterocyclic carbene catalysis. N-fluorobis(phenyl)sulfonimide serves as a an oxidant and as an "F" source. The C-F bond formation occurs directly at the α position of simple aliphatic aldehydes, thus overcoming nontrivial challenges, such as(More)
YSSP Late Summer Workshop 2012 2 IIASA's annual 3-month Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP) offers research opportunities to talented young researchers whose interests correspond with IIASA's ongoing research on issues of global environmental, economic and social change. From June through August accepted participants work within the Institute's Research(More)
—This study presented an economic model for estimating the land use structure changes based on Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) imagery. The Lorenz Curve and Gini coefficient, derived from Economics, were introduced as tools for investigating and quantifying the land use structure changes from 1987 to 2007 in Xiamen, China. The results showed that the spatial(More)
