Considerable difference in artemisinin and its direct precursors, artemisinic acid and dihydroartemisinic acid, was detected between two chemotypes within the species Artemisia annua (A. annua). These two chemotypes showed differential metabolic response to methyl jasmonate (MeJA) elicitation. Exogenous application of MeJA resulted in an accumulation of(More)
Sir2 is the most intensively discussed longevity gene in current aging research. Although, the gene encoding a NAD(+)-dependent histone deacetylase initially was found to extend lifespan of various organisms ranging from yeast to mammals, serious doubts regarding its role in longevity have been expressed recently. In this study, we tested whether(More)
A high-pressure digestive vessel was designed and used in the pretreatment of samples of human body materials. The method has been used in combination with neopolarographic anodic stripping voltammetry, oscillographic anodic stripping voltammetry and graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry for trace analysis of lead in blood, hair and nails. The(More)
Congenital insensitivity to pain with anhidrosis (CIPA) is a very rare autosomal recessively inherited disorder. The main clinical features of the disorder consist of absence of reactions to noxious stimuli and inability to sweat under any conditions.In this case report, a 3-year-old Chinese boy diagnosed with CIPA presented with the core features of CIPA,(More)
Image sensing at a small scale is essentially important in many fields, including microsample observation, defect inspection, material characterization and so on. However, nowadays, multi-directional micro object imaging is still very challenging due to the limited field of view (FOV) of microscopes. This paper reports a novel approach for multi-directional(More)
BACKGROUND Plasma glutamine (Gln) level has been negatively correlated with the severity of severe acute pancreatitis (SAP). Although Gln is widely used today, the results of individual randomized controlled trials of Gln-enriched nutrition support for patients with SAP are conflicting. METHODS PubMed, EMBASE, HighWire, Cochrane Central Register of(More)
In this work photodegradation rates and pathways of malachite green were studied under simulated and solar irradiation with the goal of assessing the potential of photolysis as a removal mechanism in real aquatic environment. Factors influencing the photodegradation process were investigated, including pH, humic acid, Fe(2+), Ca(2+), HCO3(-), and NO3(-), of(More)
Some regions of objects will be measured incorrectly or can't be measured in optical 3D measurement system based on coded structured light, due to occlusion, shadow, transfer function of measurement system and noise etc. To obtain 3D data as much as possible and as correctly as possible, we proposed a method using improved binary spatio-temporal encoded(More)
We set out to assess the performance and degree of agreement for the different automated hematology analyzers (AHAs) currently used within the Shanghai region. Analyzers from 5 different manufacturers were represented within the 114 hospitals that participated in this project: Abbott, ABX, Beckman Coulter, Nihon Kohden, and Sysmex. We determined the results(More)
