A novel method for the detection of hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2)) has been developed, based on electrogenerated chemiluminescence (ECL) of blue emitting ZnSe quantum dots (QDs) in aqueous solution. The weak ECL emission of ZnSe QDs was generated when the electrode potential was scanned from 0.0 to -1.4V (versus Ag/AgCl), and the ECL intensity was greatly(More)
The potential role that rectification of ENSO plays as a viable mechanism to generate climate anomalies on the decadal and longer time scales demands a thorough study of this process. In this paper, rectification of ENSOwas studied using an ocean GCM that has a realistic seasonal cycle. In addition to conducting a pair of forced ocean GCM experiments with(More)
In this work, we studied the air-sea interaction over the tropical central eastern Pacific from a new perspective, climate network. The surface air temperatures over the tropical Pacific were constructed as a network, and the nodes within this network were linked if they have a similar temporal varying pattern. Using three different reanalysis datasets, we(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are 21 to 24 nucleotide, non-coding RNA molecules that post-transcriptionally regulate the expression of target genes. Ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation has been shown to inhibit phosphatase and tensin homolog deleted on chromosome 10 (PTEN) expression in HaCaT cells through an unknown mechanism. In this study, we investigated whether miR-141(More)
Water-soluble CdTe quantum dots (QDs) with five sizes (2.25, 2.50, 2.77, 3.12, and 3.26nm) were synthesized with the hydrothermal method. The electrochemiluminescence (ECL) of CdTe QDs was investigated in detail in air-saturated solution without adding foreign oxidant. It was found that the ECL of CdTe QDs displayed a size-dependent property. With the(More)
