Nanoparticles containing magnetic materials, such as magnetite (Fe3O4), are particularly useful for imaging and separation techniques. As these nanoparticles are generally considered to be biologically and chemically inert, they are typically coated with metal catalysts, antibodies or enzymes to increase their functionality as separation agents. Here, we(More)
For the past 150 years, neurobiological models of language have debated the role of key brain regions in language function. One consistently debated set of issues concern the role of the left inferior frontal gyrus in syntactic processing. Here we combine measures of functional activity, grey matter integrity and performance in patients with left hemisphere(More)
Knowledge of the factors that influence the fate and transport of viruses in porous media is very important for accurately determining groundwater vulnerability and for developing protective regulations. In this study, six saturated sand column experiments were performed to examine the effects of a positively charged Al-oxide, which was coated on sand(More)
Organic materials are widespread in natural soil and aquatic environments. Their effect on virus transport is very important in assessing the risk for contamination of ground water by viruses. This study aimed to determine how different forms (mineral-associated and dissolved) of natural organic matter influence the retention and transport of two(More)
Microorganisms mediate the decomposition of straw residue in soil, but how soil fertility levels affect microbial incorporation of straw C remains unclear in many ecosystems. The objectives of this study were to quantify the contribution of straw C to microbial organic C (MBC), and to evaluate the effect of different soil fertility levels on the(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to objectively assess levels of physical activity (PA) and sedentary behavior (SB) of Chinese city children and youth aged 9 to 17 years old using accelerometers and to examine their differences by gender, age, grade, and weight status. METHOD The PA and SB of 2,163 students in 4th grade through 11th grade (M(age) =(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW There is an inverse relationship between cancer incidence and cardiorespiratory fitness in large population studies. Mechanistic insights into these observations may strengthen the rationale for encouraging exercise fitness in the clinics for cancer prevention and may promote the development of new preventive strategies.

The concept that mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs) are regarded as ideal novel drug delivery carriers in tumor therapy has been introduced extensively, but the effects of MSNs on tumor growth have received little attention. Here a model of nude mice xenografted with human malignant melanoma cells (A375) was used to investigate the effect of MSNs on(More)
The conventional Wiener–Hopf beamformer is subject to substantial performance degradation in the presence of steering vector pointing errors. By removing the effects of the desired signal, the modified Wiener–Hopf beamformer avoids this problem but allows cochannel interferences to pass through in order to maximise the signal-to-noise ratio. In this study,(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the hepatitis E virus (HEV) sensitive cells and its tissue culture conditions. METHODS The HEV from dejecta supernatant of patients with acute hepatitis E was amplified and activated by passaged in Rhesus. Then, the positive dejecta samples of infected monkeys were dealt with super-centrifugation and virus for culture was(More)
