Marine algae of the genus Nannochloropsis are promising producers of biofuel precursors and nutraceuticals and are also harvested commercially for aquaculture feed. We have used quick-freeze, deep-etch electron microscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, and carbohydrate analyses to characterize the architecture of the Nannochloropsis gaditana(More)
Aberrant mucin secretion and accumulation in the airway lumen are clinical hallmarks associated with various lung diseases such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and cystic fibrosis. Mycoplasma pneumoniae, long appreciated as one of the triggers of acute exacerbations of chronic pulmonary diseases, has recently been reported to promote(More)
This paper discusses a new criterion for allocation of required capital. This criterion is uniformly applicable to financial enterprises of all types. A completely natural rule for allocating capital to business units is described. This rule allocates capital in a way that is invariant over the method of decomposing the enterprise into business units.(More)
The cell cluster modeling is a widely used method to estimate the small-scale dosimetry and provides the implication for a clinic. This work evaluated the effect of different regular cluster models on the radiobiological outputs for (211)At-radioimmunotherapy. The cell activity threshold was estimated using a tumor control probability of 0.90. Basically,(More)
Regulator of G protein signaling 5 (RGS5) acts as a GTPase-activating protein (GAP) for the Gαi subunit and negatively regulates G protein-coupled receptor signaling. However, its presence and function in postmitotic differentiated primary neurons remains largely uncharacterized. During neural development, sonic hedgehog (Shh) signaling is involved in cell(More)
In Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy static intensity modulation delivery, leaf sequencing is basically a process where the intensity map is broken down into subfields or segments that can be implemented by multileaf collimators. The purpose of this study was to investigate a new method to improve the Langer’s integer programming model. The method is to(More)
PURPOSE The organ or tumor activity is not uniform due to inhomogeneous expression/distributions of receptors/antigens and the nonuniform vascularization of the tumor tissue. However, most patient-specific three-dimensional Monte-Carlo methods for radionuclide dosimetry have dealt with quasi-homogeneous activity distributions. A voxel-by-voxel activity(More)
The English-Chinese bilingual teaching in the physics experiment course is a significant approach to foster innovational talents in the new century in China. The applicability and feasibility of bilingual teaching in the course of physics experiment and the obstacles facing in the process of implementation are discussed. Various approaches and methods to(More)
