Carbon (C) and water cycles of terrestrial ecosystems are two coupled ecological processes controlled partly by stomatal behavior. Water-use efficiency (WUE) reflects the coupling relationship to some extent. At stand and ecosystem levels, the variability of WUE results from the trade-off between water loss and C gain in the process of plant photosynthetic(More)
P-glycoprotein (P-gp) plays a key role in the distribution and elimination of many clinically important therapeutic substances. P-gp inhibition is capable of increasing the concentration of various drugs in the brain. Danshensu is a main hydrophilic constituent of Salvia miltiorrhiza Bunge which is used traditionally(More)
Over the last few years, Flickr has gained massive popularity and groups in Flickr are one of the main ways for photo diffusion. However, the huge volume of groups brings troubles for users to decide which group to choose. In this paper, we propose a tensor decomposition-based group recommendation model to suggest groups to users which can help tackle this(More)
[1] Carbon residence time is one critical parameter for predicting future land carbon sink dynamics but has not been well quantified for many plant and soil pools. This study applied a probabilistic inverse analysis of multiple observations to estimate mean residence times of carbon among three forest ecosystems in eastern China. Three assimilation(More)
Spatial learning and memory are impaired in diabetic animals. The interaction of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) with the receptor of AGEs (RAGE), resulting in the activation of nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB), plays an important role in pathways leading to the cytotoxic effects to neurons. Danshensu, a compound from Salvia miltiorrhiza Bunge, has(More)
Channel state information (CSI) provided by limited feedback channel can be utilized to increase the system throughput. However, in multiple input multiple output (MIMO) systems, the signaling overhead realizing this CSI feedback can be quite large, while the capacity of the uplink feedback channel is typically limited. Hence, it is crucial to reduce the(More)
The acetylcholinesterase inhibitor (AChEI), huperzine A has been used in the treatment of the cognitive deterioration associated with Alzheimer's disease (AD). However, the side-effects of huperzine A associated with increased cholinergic activity, particularly in the gastrointestinal system, are evident. It is not yet known how quickly these side-effects(More)
Considerable evidence has been accumulated demonstrating an important role for inflammation in ischemic brain injury and its contribution to greater cerebral damage after ischemia. Blocking the inflammatory reaction promotes neuroprotection and shows therapeutic potential for clinical treatment of ischemic brain injury. Escin, a natural mixture of(More)
This study was designed to investigate the protective effect of ferulic acid (FA) on nerve injury induced by cerebral ischemia. Focal cerebral ischemia was induced by occlusion of the right middle cerebral artery and reperfusion 90 min later in male Sprague-Dawley rats. Daily treatment of the rats with FA was initiated 30 min after the surgery, and was(More)
