Occurrence of brominated flame retardants (BFRs), organochlorine pesticides (OCPs), and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in agricultural soils in a BFR-manufacturing region of North China.
We investigated the occurrence of brominated flame retardants (BFRs), organochlorine pesticides (OCPs), and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in the surface soils from the largest BFR-manufacturingExpand

Markedly enhanced absorption and direct radiative forcing of black carbon under polluted urban environments
Significance Although black carbon (BC) represents a key short-lived climate forcer, its direct radiative forcing remains highly uncertain. The available results from available studies of absorptionExpand

Levels and sources of brominated flame retardants in human hair from urban, e-waste, and rural areas in South China.
Human hair and indoor dust from urban, e-waste, and rural areas in south China were collected and analyzed for brominated flame retardants (BFRs). BFRs concentrations in hair from occupationalExpand

Prestin-Based Outer Hair Cell Motility Is Necessary for Mammalian Cochlear Amplification
It is a central tenet of cochlear neurobiology that mammalian ears rely on a local, mechanical amplification process for their high sensitivity and sharp frequency selectivity. While it is generallyExpand

Requirement of TORC1 for Late-Phase Long-Term Potentiation in the Hippocampus
Late-phase long-term potentiation (L-LTP) and long-term memory depend on the transcription of mRNA of CRE-driven genes and synthesis of proteins. However, how synaptic signals propagate to theExpand

The C-terminus of prestin influences nonlinear capacitance and plasma membrane targeting
Prestin is a unique molecular-motor protein expressed in the lateral plasma membrane of outer hair cells (OHC) in the organ of Corti of the mammalian cochlea. It is thought that prestin undergoesExpand

Effects of cyclic nucleotides on the function of prestin
Outer hair cells (OHCs) in the mammalian organ of Corti display electromotility, which is thought to provide the local active mechanical amplification of the cochlear response. Prestin is the keyExpand
