The GAL4/UAS binary system has been widely used in Drosophila melanogaster for ectopic expression of transgenes in a tissue-specific manner. The GMR-GAL4 driver, which expresses the yeast transcription factor GAL4 under the control of glass multiple reporter (GMR) promoter elements, has been commonly utilized to express target transgenes, specifically(More)
Ultrafast pulsed laser irradiation is demonstrated to be able to produce surface nano-structuring and simultaneous crystallization of amorphous silicon thin film in one step laser processing. After fs laser irradiation on 80 nm-thick a-Si deposited on Corning 1737 glass substrate, the color change from light yellow to dark brown was observed on the sample(More)
The complex nanoliposomes encapsulating both a hydrophilic drug vitamin C (vit C) and hydrophobic drug medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs) was prepared by combining double emulsion method with dynamic high pressure microfluidization. The complex nanoliposomes was further freeze-dried under -86 °C for 48 h with sucrose at the sucrose/lipids ratio of 2:1(w/w) in(More)
This study aims to investigate the correlation between allergic sensitization of atopic dermatitis (AD) patients and their serum interleukin (IL)-16 levels. AD patients, healthy volunteers, and patients with psoriasis (N = 80, 35, 20, respectively) were tested for serum IL-16 and total and specific IgE levels by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, along with(More)
The objective of this study was to explore the feasibility of inter-subspecies somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) of river buffalo (50 chromosomes) somatic cell nuclei into swamp buffalo (48 chromosomes) oocyte cytoplasm. The enucleated swamp buffalo oocytes were fused with four different types of river buffalo cells: freshly thawed ear fibroblasts,(More)
The aim of this study was to explore the feasibility of cryopreservation of inter-subspecies cloned embryos in buffalo. In our experiment, river buffalo ear fibroblast nucleus was fused into swamp buffalo oocyte cytoplasm. The blastocyst formation rate for nuclear transfer of freshly thawed cells was not different from those of growing cells, confluent or(More)
Laser surface texturing based on ablation has been widely used, but hardly any reports can be found on non-ablative laser surface texturing. Silicon is highly transparent to the infrared wavelength of fiber laser (λ = 1090 nm) and thus regarded as an unsuitable tool for the purpose of surface texturing. However, we succeeded in using a continuous wave fiber(More)
Kafirin (KAF), the prolamine protein from sorghum grain, is a promising resource for fabricating renewable and biodegradable materials. However, research efforts in fulfilling its potentials are still lacking. In this work, electrospun kafirin fibers from acetic acid/dichloromethane solutions are reported for the first time. Biodegradable polycaprolactone(More)
A p-polarized femtosecond laser beam was used to irradiate a UV grade fused silica to create microchannels, which are useful for producing optical gratings or micro fluidics devices. The laser irradiated surface was characterized using optical microscope, stylus profiler, SEM, XRD and TEM. A special technique was used to protect the laser irradiated(More)
