PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate the image quality of hand tendons using dual-energy computed tomographic gemstone spectral imaging (DECT GSI) compared with conventional CT images. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty patients scanned with GSI mode on DECT were enrolled. The 65-keV optimal contrast-to-noise ratio for viewing hand tendons was selected.(More)
The reaction cycle of HECT domain ubiquitin ligases consists of three steps: 1) binding of an E2 protein, 2) transfer of ubiquitin from E2 to the HECT domain, and 3) transfer of ubiquitin to the substrate. We report the identification of a determinant that is specifically required for the last step of this cycle, a phenylalanine residue located four amino(More)
The gene encoding the antifungal protein osmotin is induced by several hormonal and environmental signals. In this study, tissue-specific and inducer-mediated expression of the reporter gene β-glucuronidase (uidA) fused to different fragment lengths of the osmotin promoter was evaluated in transgenic tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum). The region of the promoter(More)
Bacterial strain 14-2A(T), isolated from a long-term DDT-contaminated soil in China, was characterized by using a polyphasic approach to clarify its taxonomic position. Strain 14-2A(T) was found to be Gram-negative, aerobic, non-spore-forming, non-motile, non-flagellated and rod-shaped. The new isolate was able to grow at 4-42 °C, pH 6.0-9.0 and with 0-5 %(More)
Dehalogenases play key roles in the detoxification of halogenated aromatics. Interestingly, only one hydrolytic dehalogenase for halogenated aromatics, 4-chlorobenzoyl-coenzyme A (CoA) dehalogenase, has been reported. Here, we characterize another novel hydrolytic dehalogenase for a halogenated aromatic compound from the 2,4,5,6-tetrachloroisophthalonitrile(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES To evaluate the feasibility of multiparameter quantitative measurement lung cancer by Gemstone Spectral Imaging (GSI) high-definition computed tomography. MATERIALS AND METHODS Seventy-seven patients who were found to have a lung mass or a nodule by CT plain scan for the first time received chest contrast CT scan with GSI mode on(More)
In this report, a novel nanocomposite of highly dispersed CeO2 on a TiO2 nanotube was designed and proposed as a peroxidase-like mimic. The best peroxidase-like activity was obtained for the CeO2/nanotube-TiO2 when the molar ratio of Ce/Ti was 0.1, which was much higher than that for CeO2/nanowire-TiO2, CeO2/nanorod-TiO2, or CeO2/nanoparticle-TiO2 with a(More)
To study the association of polymorphisms of the IL-18 promoter (-607C/A and -137G/C) with bronchial asthma, 120 subjects with bronchial asthma were selected as the experimental group (49 cases with bronchial asthma and allergic rhinitis as experimental group 1 and 71 cases with bronchial asthma without allergic rhinitis as experimental group 2) and 120(More)
A novel CdSe/NiO heteroarchitecture was designed, prepared, and used as a photocathode for hydrogen generation from water. The composite films were structurally, optically, and photoelectrochemically characterized. The deposition of CdSe on the NiO film enhanced light harvesting in the visible-light region and photoelectrochemical properties. Moreover, the(More)
