It is theoretically possible to separate the study of politeness into the analysis of social indices, social tactics, and persuasion. The finely graded polite forms even in non face-threatening contexts in Asian languages and the form distinctions in children's role and doll play testify to the conceptual separability of politeness as a social index from(More)
Several AP2/ERF transcription factors are wound-induced regulators, which play key roles in controlling cell dedifferentiation. In this study, a novel AP2/ERF transcription factor, the WIND1-like gene (ThWIND1-L), was isolated and characterized from Thellungiella halophila. ThWIND1-L cDNA clone contained a full open reading frame (ORF) of 1,068 bp encoding(More)
—By analyzing and researching several digital chaotic image encryption algorithms, this paper designs a symmetric image encryption scheme based on the three-dimensional Henon chaotic map and the general Cat chaotic map. In this scheme, the chaotic sequence of general Cat map is used as the initialization sequence to confuse the positions of image pixels;(More)
Pogostemon cablin possesses two morphologically and ontogenetically different types of glandular trichomes, one type of bristle hair on the surfaces of leaves and stems and one type of internal gland inside the leaves and stems. The internal gland originates from elementary meristem and is associated with the biosynthesis of oils present inside the leaves(More)
BACKGROUND Recurrent genetic abnormalities that correlate with clinical features could be used to determine patients' prognosis, select treatments and predict responses to therapy. Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) contains genomic alterations of undefined clinical significance. We aimed to identify mutually exclusive mutations that are frequently(More)
During asexual plant reproduction, cells from different organs can be reprogrammed to produce new individuals, a process that requires the coordination of cell cycle reactivation with the acquisition of other cellular morphological characteristics. However, the factors that influence the variety of asexual reproduction have not yet been determined. Here, we(More)
