The alpha1(X) collagen gene (Col10a1) is the only known hypertrophic chondrocyte-specific molecular marker. Until recently, few transcriptional factors specifying its tissue-specific expression have been identified. We show here that a 4-kb murine Col10a1 promoter can drive beta-galactosidase expression in lower hypertrophic chondrocytes in transgenic mice.(More)
This is a PDF file of an unedited manuscript that has been accepted for publication. As a service to our customers we are providing this early version of the manuscript. The manuscript will undergo copyediting, typesetting, and review of the resulting galley proof before it is published in its final citable form. Please note that during the production(More)
As the green house gas emission becomes a serious problem, a lot of researches now focus on how to monitor and manage carbon footprint (CF) of a production process or transportation, especially in the supply chain. Usually, most of the carbon footprint management systems are based on databases. But database is not sufficient in describing the production and(More)
Service computing technologies have been widely applied to many application domains to facilitate rapid system integration for desired goals. However, existing service models need to be enhanced for cyber-physical systems (CPS) and internet-of-things (IoT). In this paper, we develop an ontology model for the specification of services in CPS/IoT. First, we(More)
An energy management system based on Hierarchical fuzzy controller for the distributed hybrid wind-solar power system is designed. Based on hierarchical fuzzy control, the energy management system switches the mode of power supply and controls the load share according to the condition of wind power, solar radiation and load requirement. Through the suitable(More)
Osteoporosis is a common skeletal disease characterized by low bone mass and microarchitectural deterioration of bone tissue, with a consequent increase in bone fragility and susceptibility to fracture. We previously demonstrated that Col1a1-SOX9 transgenic (TG) mice, in which SOX9 specifically expresses in osteoblasts driven by a 2.3-kb Col1a1 promoter,(More)
