The Silkworm Knowledgebase (SilkDB) is a web-based repository for the curation, integration and study of silkworm genetic and genomic data. With the recent accomplishment of a approximately 6X draft genome sequence of the domestic silkworm (Bombyx mori), SilkDB provides an integrated representation of the large-scale, genome-wide sequence assembly, cDNAs,(More)
The present study aimed to investigate the mechanism of injured neurons caused by ischemia/reperfusion in the induction of microglia activation. Spinal neurons were prepared and exposed to ischemic/reperfused conditions. The α-synuclein protein levels in these cells were analyzed by western blot, immunofluorescence, or enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.(More)
Accessing the microsecond dynamics of a single fluorescent molecule in real time is difficult because molecular fluorescence rates usually limit the time resolution to milliseconds. We propose to apply single-molecule temperature-cycle microscopy to probe molecular dynamics at microsecond timescales. Here, we follow donor and acceptor signals of single(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of ginsenoside Rg1 on the expressions of phosphory protein Tau (P-Tau), N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor subunit 1 (NR1) and N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor subunit 2B(NR2B) in rat brain slice model of Alzheimer's disease. METHOD Brains of 5-week-old Wistar rats were cut into slices which were 400 microm thick. These brain(More)
The enhancement of molecular absorption, emission and scattering processes by coupling to surface plasmon polaritons on metallic nanoparticles is a key issue in plasmonics for applications in (bio)chemical sensing, light harvesting and photocatalysis. Nevertheless, the point spread functions for single-molecule emission near metallic nanoparticles remain(More)
The proliferation of Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN) has fostered a growing interest in the location-based services for WLAN users. For indoor WLAN systems, signal dispersion is highly disturbed. Therefore, how to improve the accuracy of the location sensing is a very challenging problem. Deploying location sensors as reference tags in the system is a(More)
Organometal halide perovskites show promising features for cost-effective application in photovoltaics. The material instability remains a major obstacle to broad application because of the poorly understood degradation pathways. Here, we apply simultaneous luminescence and electron microscopy on perovskites for the first time, allowing us to monitor in(More)
Photocatalytic reactions occur at the crystal-solution interface, and hence specific crystal facet expression and surface defects can play an important role. Here we investigate the structure-related photoreduction at zinc oxide (ZnO) microparticles via integrated light and electron microscopy in combination with silver metal photodeposition. This enables a(More)
