Baicalein has been reported to induce growth-inhibitory activity in vitro in human cancer cells; however, the molecular mechanism of action is not completely understood. A pharmacological dose (10-100 microM) of baicalein exerted a cytotoxic effect on human hepatoma J5 cells resulting in G2/M arrest and apoptosis. In addition to cytotoxicity in J5 cells,(More)
Kandelia candel (L.) Druce is the dominant mangrove species in two nature reserves in Northern Taiwan. We characterized the nutrient quality of the leaf litter originating from K. candel and attempted to suggest the extent to which the observed decline of nutrient concentrations in senescing leaves could be attributed to the withdrawal of these nutrients(More)
Kandelia candel (L.) Druce is the dominant mangrove species on the west coast of northern Taiwan. We have measured the net photosynthetic rate (P N) and chlorophyll (Chl) a fluorescence of seedlings grown at combinations of two nitrogen (0.01 and 0.1 mM) and two NaCl (250 and 430 mM NaCl) controls. With the same nitrogen level, seedlings grown at higher(More)
Lateral transition-metal dichalcogenide and their heterostructures have attracted substantial attention, but there lacks a simple approach to produce large-scaled optoelectronic devices with graded composition. In particular, the incorporation of substitution and doping into heterostructure formation is rarely reported. Here, we demonstrate growth of a(More)
Atomically thin materials, such as graphene, are the ultimate building blocks for nanoscale devices. But although their synthesis and handling today are routine, all efforts thus far have been restricted to flat natural geometries, since the means to control their three-dimensional (3D) morphology has remained elusive. Here we show that, just as a(More)
