Flag leaf width (FLW) is directly related to photosynthetic capacity and yield potential in wheat. In a previous study, Qflw.nau-5A controlling FLW was detected on chromosome 5A in the interval possessing Fhb5 for type I Fusarium head blight (FHB) resistance using a recombinant inbred line population derived from Nanda2419 × Wangshuibai. Qflw.nau-5A(More)
Microbial populations associated with microbial enhanced oil recovery (MEOR) and their abundance in the Xinjiang Luliang water-flooding petroleum reservoir were investigated using 16S rRNA, nitrate reductases, dissimilatory sulfate reductase, and methyl coenzyme-M reductase-encoded genes to provide ecological information for the potential application of(More)
Sulfur can be removed from benzothiophene (BT) by some bacteria without breaking carbon-carbon bonds. However, a clear mechanism for BT desulfurization and its genetic components have not been reported in literatures so far. In this study, we used comparative transcriptomics to study differential expression of genes in Gordonia terrae C-6 cultured with BT(More)
The pi calculus has been applied to modelling biochemical networks. In these applications, the modelling is done without considerations to exceptions. The Ipi calculus, the Interference pi calculus, is introduced to describe the signal transduction with aberrance. The calculus is obtained by adding two aberrant actions into the pi calculus and a tag system(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is an important cause of cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. The major challenges for current therapies are the low efficacy of current drugs and the occurrence of drug resistant HBV mutations. RNA interference (RNAi) of virus-specific genes offers the possibility of developing a new anti-HBV therapy.(More)
Interrupts are important aspects of real-time embedded systems to handle events in time. When there exist nested interrupts in a real-time system, and an urgent interrupt is allowed to preempt the current interrupt handling, the design and analysis of the system become difficult due to the lack of appropriate behavioral models. This paper proposes a(More)
BACKGROUND Low-dose lipopolysaccharide (LPS) preconditioning-induced liver protection has been demonstrated during ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) in several organs but has not been sufficiently elucidated underlying causal mechanism. This study investigated the role of low-dose LPS preconditioning on ATF4-CHOP pathway as well as the effects of the(More)
We have developed a calculus, called Ipi, for describing the aberrance in biological models. Our approach extends the traditional pi calculus to handle aberrant process in the signal transduction. In this paper we propose a typing system that replaces the tag system of Ipi calculus. It is shown that the typing system is equal to the tag system in terms of(More)
Two types of bipolar resistance switching with eightwise and counter eightwise polarities are observed to coexist in Au/SrTiO3/Ti memory cells. These two types of switching can be induced by different defect distributions which are activated by controlling the electric process. The analyses of I-V and C-V data reveal that the resistance switching with(More)
