The succinic semialdehyde dehydrogenase (SSADH) null mouse (SSADH(-/-)) represents a viable animal model for human SSADH deficiency and is characterized by markedly elevated levels of both gamma-hydroxybutyric acid (GHB) and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in brain, blood, and urine. In physiological concentrations, GHB acts at the GHB receptor (GHBR), but(More)
Monitoring aspects of human performance during various activities has recently become a highly investigated research area. Many new commercial products are available now to monitor human physical activity or responses while performing activities ranging from playing sports, to driving, and even sleeping. However, monitoring cognitive performance biomarkers,(More)
BACKGROUND The diagnosis of sarcoidosis is still a significant challenge in China because of the need to exclude other diseases including granulomatous infections and malignancies that may be clinically and radiographically similar. The specific aim of the study is to search for serum protein biomarkers of sarcoidosis and to validate their clinical(More)
— In many applications it is desirable to simultaneously measure the concentration of multiple fluorescent sources. In this paper, a simple robust technique for accomplishing this is realized by illuminating the fluorescent elements by excitation light modulated at different frequencies. A single microprocessor is used to drive the excitation sources(More)
This event-related functional MRI study examined the neural correlates for Chinese writing, by comparing the writing of logographic characters and that of pinyin, a phonetic notation system for Chinese characters. The temporal profile of the activations indicated that the middle frontal gyrus, superior parietal lobule, and posterior inferior temporal gyrus(More)
The aim of this study was to explore the immune repairing effect of a composition isolated from white peony root oral liquid (cWPROL), a traditional Chinese herbal composition , in the treatment of experimental radiation-induced esophagitis in rats. A total of 128 Wistar rats were randomly divided into eight groups, irradiated with 43 Gy 60 Co γ-rays to(More)
In this work, we describe an optical carbon dioxide (CO 2) sensor based on luminescent quenching of hydroxy-pyrenetrisulfonic acid (HPTS). A low-cost CMOS image array was used as detector, while cross-polarization was used to filter the excitation light and reduce background interference. The sensor exhibited excellent performance, with high sensitivity(More)
