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)
This paper first overviews the concept of temporal association rules mining associated methods. It proposes an innovative approach of data mining for temporal association rules mining. According to the ordinary related rules, our method considers the time-constrains. Finally, the paper provides the performance estimation of this algorithm
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)
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)
Fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS) is a standard tool for studying diffusion of molecules in solution, but is limited to low analyte concentrations, in the range between 10 pM and 1 nM. Such concentration limitations can be overcome by using a plasmonic nanoantenna which confines the electric field of excitation light into a tiny volume near its(More)
Optical antennas made of metallic nanostructures dramatically enhance single-molecule fluorescence to boost the detection sensitivity. Moreover, emission properties detected at the optical far field are dictated by the antenna. Here we study the emission from molecule-antenna hybrids by means of super-resolution localization and defocused imaging. Whereas(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the age‑related alterations in hypertensive brain damage in the hippocampi of spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) and the underlying mechanisms. Aging resulted in a significant increase in the number of activated astrocytes and apoptotic cells in the SHR group, which was accompanied by increased expression(More)
