Trehalose plays an important role in metabolic regulation and abiotic stress tolerance in a variety of organisms. In plants, its biosynthesis is catalyzed by two key enzymes: trehalose-6-phosphate synthase (TPS) and trehalose-6-phosphate phosphatase (TPP). The genome of rice (Oryza sativa) contains 11 OsTPS genes, and only OsTPS1 shows TPS activity. To… (More)
AIM To establish the systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) mouse model through pristane intraperitoneal injection and discuss the pathogenesis of SLE in this mouse model. METHODS Single intraperitoneal injection of 0.5 mL Pristane or PBS was applied on 6-8 week old female BALB/c mice. The percentage of IFN-α producing cells (CD11b(+);Ly6C(high);)and B cells… (More)
Internet technology is advancing with each passing day, the user's demand is also increasing. Of course the users will more concern to quality of service. The vendors must find out a win win method of resource allocation to meet users and itself. Therefore, the resource allocation of cloud computing has become one of hottest topics. In literatures, some… (More)
In demyelinating diseases such as multiple sclerosis, one of the treatment strategies includes remyelination using oligodendrocyte precursor cells (OPC). Catalpol, the extract of radix rehmanniae, is neuroprotective. Using an OPC culture model, we showed that 10 μM catalpol promotes OPC proliferation, cell migration and differentiation into mature… (More)
This paper presents the results of design, installation and field measurement of a prototype underwater-turbine-generator-based micro hydro power (MHP) generation system. The studied MHP system employs the flowing water energy of the agricultural irrigation of one of the irrigation ditches of Yunlin Farmland Irrigation Association, Taiwan. Fundamentally,… (More)
In this communication, we provide a new method for characterizing the kinetics of a catalytic process on multiple sites of a single nanowire by dark-field-assisted surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (DFSERS). The differences in the reaction rate and the extent of the photocatalysis between sites of a single nanowire were observed.
