A measurement of the energy dependence of antineutrino disappearance at the Daya Bay reactor neutrino experiment is reported. Electron antineutrinos (ν¯(e)) from six 2.9  GW(th) reactors were detected with six detectors deployed in two near (effective baselines 512 and 561 m) and one far (1579 m) underground experimental halls. Using 217 days of data, 41(More)
Abdominal ultrasonography using a high-resolution linear-array real-time scanner was compared to computed tomography, celiac arteriography, and radionuclide imaging in 24 patients with a total of 33 hepatocellular carcinomas (HCC), 10 patients with cavernous hemangioma (12 tumors), and 2 patients with metastatic carcinoma of the liver (3 tumors), all(More)
To evaluate and compare the prevalence of antibodies to 3 chlamydial species in various populations on the mainland of China, the MIF test was used to detect both serum IgG and IgM antibodies to these species in the normal population (n = 711), in poultry workers (n = 51), in female prostitutes (n = 106), in patients attending the sexually transmitted(More)
The complementary DNA (cDNA) encoding pituitary thyroid stimulating hormone beta subunit (TSH-beta) of bighead carp was cloned and regulation of its gene expression was investigated for understanding phylogenetic divergence and evolution of TSH molecule. The cDNA was obtained from bighead carp pituitary total RNA by reverse transcription and polymerase(More)
Effect of aging on the morphology of bitumen was investigated. Two bitumens were aged according to the thin film oven test (TFOT), pressure aging vessel (PAV) test and ultraviolet (UV) radiation, respectively. The morphology of the binders before and after aging was characterized by atomic force microscopy. The physical properties and chemical compositions(More)
The morphology of unmodified and organo-montmorillonite modified bitumens was investigated by atomic force microscopy. The influence of thin film oven test and ultraviolet aging on the morphology of the binders was also analysed. The atomic force microscopy results showed that bitumen displayed a 'bee-like' structure and the dimension of the 'bee-like'(More)
AIMS To avoid the misdiagnosis of prostate cancer (PCA), many patients receive repeated biopsies, despite receiving prior negative biopsies for PCA. Signal transduction and activators of transcription 3 (STAT3), a component of the JAK-STAT signaling pathway, can be activated by tyrosine phosphorylation as P-STAT3 and involved in the regulation of cellular(More)
A search for light sterile neutrino mixing was performed with the first 217 days of data from the Daya Bay Reactor Antineutrino Experiment. The experiment's unique configuration of multiple baselines from six 2.9 GW(th) nuclear reactors to six antineutrino detectors deployed in two near (effective baselines 512 m and 561 m) and one far (1579 m) underground(More)
Neurotoxicological studies have indicated that L-glutamate exhibits more pronounced effects on the preoptic area (POA) neurons of male rats than on those of females in the neonatal period. However, no information has previously been available as to whether or not such sexual dimorphism also exists for the effects of glutamate on astrocytes from POA. The(More)
