—Concurrent engineering (CE) is a methodology applied to product lifecycle development so that high quality, well designed products can be provided at lower prices and in less time. Many research works have been proposed for efficiently modeling of different domains in CE. However, an integration of these works with consistent data flow is absent and still(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the relationships of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) femoral insertion site with femoral bony landmarks and develop a new method of location. Sixteen unpaired normal Chinese human cadaveric knees were used. Femoral insertion sites of the ACL were marked with metal wires. Four pairs of bony landmarks were(More)
Two wheat–Thinopyrum substitution lines X479 and X482 selected from the progenies of wheat “Mianyang26 (MY26)” × wheat–Thinopyrum intermedium ssp. trichophorum partial amphiploid were characterized by seed storage protein electrophoresis, genomic in situ hybridization (GISH), fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), and PCR-based molecular markers. Seed(More)
OBJECTIVE Mesenchymal progenitor cells (MPCs) are found in articular cartilage from normal controls and patients with osteoarthritis (OA). Nevertheless, the molecular mechanisms of the proliferation and differentiation of these cells remain unclear. In this study, we aimed to determine the involvement of Wnt/β-catenin signaling in regulating the(More)
OBJECTIVE The role of Ulinastatin in neuronal injury after cardiopulmonary resuscitation has not been elucidated. We aim to evaluate the effects of Ulinastatin on inflammation, oxidation, and neuronal injury in the cerebral cortex after cardiopulmonary resuscitation. METHODS Ventricular fibrillation was induced in 76 adult male Wistar rats for 6 min,(More)
To study the changes of cerebral glucose metabolism (CGM) during the phase of return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) after cardiac arrest (CA), we used 18-fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18FDG-PET/CT) to measure the CGM changes in six beagle canine models. After the baseline 18FDG-PET/CT was recorded, ventricular(More)
Cardiac assist devices (CAD) cause endothelial dysfunction with considerable morbidity. Employment of pulsatile CAD remains controversial due to inadequate perfusion curves and costs. Alternatively, we are proposing a new concept of pulsatile CAD based on a fundamental revision of the entire circulatory system in correspondence with the physiopathology and(More)
The marbled rockfish, Sebastiscus marmoratus, is an important commercially near-shore fish inhabiting littoral rocky bottoms from Japan to the East China Sea. Eleven polymorphic microsatellite loci were isolated from S. marmoratus and the polymorphism of these loci was observed in 32 samples from one wild population. The number of alleles ranged from 2 to(More)
Thinopyrum intermedium has been hybridized extensively with wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) and several genes for disease resistance have been introgressed to cultivated wheat. However, there are very few reports about the Th. intermedium-derived seed storage protein genes which have been transferred into a wheat background by chromosome manipulation. Our aim(More)
