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)
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)
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)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to assess the effects of long-term offshore work on cerebral oxygenation oscillations in sailors based on the wavelet phase coherence (WPCO) of near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) signals. METHODS The fatigue severity scale (FSS) was first applied to assess the fatigue level of sailors and age-matched controls.(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)
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)
The ubiquitous structure of δ-lactones makes the development of new methods for their enantioselective and stereoselective synthesis an important ongoing challenge. The intermolecular dynamic kinetic resolution (DKR) of β-halo-α-ketoesters cooperatively catalyzed by an N-heterocyclic carbene and a Lewis acid generates two contiguous stereocenters with(More)
