BACKGROUND Cancer stem cells (CSCs) play an important role in cancer initiation, relapse and metastasis. To date, no specific medicine has been found to target CSCs as they are resistant to most conventional therapies and proliferate indefinitely. Compound Kushen Injection (CKI) has been widely used for cancer patients with remarkable therapeutic effects in(More)
The conventional de-noising methods cannot achieve an excellent result in de-nosing of agricultural images. To solve this problem, a new de-noising method based on Genetic Algorithm (GA) and Wavelet Transform was presented, which combines the advantage of Wavelet Transform de-noising and Wiener Filter together. At first, the image de-noised by Wavelet(More)
Two coumarin derivatives containing electron-transporting benzoxazolyl moiety, 7-(diethylamino)-3-(benzoxazol-2-yl)coumarin (DABOC) and 3-(benzoxazol-2-yl)benzo[5,6]coumarin (BOBC), were synthesized and characterized. The photoluminescence and electroluminescence of the compounds were investigated detailedly. The compounds exhibited strong blue-green(More)
The presence of stem cells in the organ of Corti raises the hope of regeneration of mammalian inner ear cells. However, little is known about the distribution of endogenous stem cells in the inner ear as well as their sphere-forming abilities. The aim of this study is to evaluate the stem cells derived from different turns of the organ of Corti and analyze(More)
Previous reports showed the presence of limited numbers of stem cells in neonatal murine cochlear sensory epithelia and these cells are progressively lost during the postnatal development. The goal of this study was to investigate whether stem cells can be derived from mature mouse cochleae under suspension culture conditions, and to analyze the expression(More)
The internal quality of apple is impossible to be detected by eyes in the procedure of sorting, which could reduce the apple's quality reaching market. This paper illustrates an instrument using X-ray and machine vision. The following steps were introduced to process the X-ray image in order to determine the mould core apple. Firstly, lifting wavelet(More)
BACKGROUND The muskrat is a seasonal breeder. Males secrete musk to attract females during the breeding season. The testosterone binding to the androgen receptor (AR) in musk glands of muskrat may play an important role conducting the musk secretion process. METHODS The musk gland, testis and blood samples of musk rats are collected in both breeding and(More)
