NADPH oxidases are the major sources of reactive oxygen species in cardiovascular, neural, and kidney cells. The NADPH oxidase 5 (NOX5) gene is present in humans but not rodents. Because Nox isoforms in renal proximal tubules (RPTs) are involved in the pathogenesis of hypertension, we tested the hypothesis that NOX5 is differentially expressed in RPT cells… (More)

The identification of the suitable areas for common oat (Avena sativa L.) and naked oat (Avena nuda L.) in China using Multi-Criteria Evaluation (MCE) approach based on GIS is presented in the current article. Climate, topography, soil, land use and oat variety databases were created. Relevant criteria, suitability levels and their weights for each factor… (More)
The non-parametric Mann-Kendall method and Sliding t-test were applied in this study to analyze the spatial and temporal patterns of trends of the precipitation in the Loess Plateau from 1958 to 2007. The main trends of the precipitation in this region is downward, only four upward time series have not reach the significant level. Most of the abrupt changes… (More)
Knowledge of psychrometric properties is the basic requirement for environmental measurements and drying processes. The software GRAPSI_DRAW is capable of calculating the psychrometric properties and simulating the basic psychrometric processes with the precision of analytical methods, also showing the results in charts plotted on the computer screen.
Based on the combined use of satellite remote sensing and geographical information systems(GIS), as well as field investigation, the land-use change dynamics and the interaction between these changes are analyzed in the Zuli River Basin located in semi-arid Loess Plateau China during the period of 1987-2005, which with typical farming-pastoral region… (More)
