Adversity, particularly in early life, can cause illness. Clues to the responsible mechanisms may lie with the discovery of molecular signatures of stress, some of which include alterations to an individual's somatic genome. Here, using genome sequences from 11,670 women, we observed a highly significant association between a stress-related disease, major(More)
Proton exchange membrane fuel cells are promising candidates for a clean and efficient energy conversion in the future, the development of carbon based inexpensive non-precious metal ORR catalyst has becoming one of the most attractive topics in fuel cell field. Herein we report a Fe-and N-doped carbon catalyst Fe-PANI/C-Mela with graphene structure and the(More)
BACKGROUND Our prior study in Han Chinese women has shown that women with a history of childhood sexual abuse (CSA) are at increased risk for developing major depression (MD). Would this relationship be found in our whole data set? METHOD Three levels of CSA (non-genital, genital, and intercourse) were assessed by self-report in two groups of Han Chinese(More)
The emerging multimedia social network is a convenient platform on which multimedia content, such as e-books, digital images, audios and videos can be distributed and shared. In the open network scenario, users can randomly share or spread digital contents protected by copyright; thus, Digital Rights Management (DRM) has become a growing problem. This(More)
Transgenic photo-thermo sensitive genic male sterility Oryza sativa L. cv. "261S" plants with the anti-Waxy gene were successfully obtained using an Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated co-transformation method. Marker-free homozygous transgenic lines with the anti-Waxy gene were obtained. The setting seed rates of the transgenic plants via self-pollination(More)
Single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are the most frequent form of genetic variations. Non-synonymous SNPs (nsSNPs) occurring in coding region result in single amino acid substitutions that associate with human hereditary diseases. Plenty of approaches were designed for distinguishing deleterious from neutral nsSNPs based on sequence level information.(More)
EXPERIMENTAL SECTION Reagents. NCNTs with nitrogen-content of 3~5% were synthesized by chemical vapor deposition at 650 o C and pyridine was employed as precursor. 11 The as-prepared NCNTs were sequential refluxed in 6 M NaOH and 6 M HCl aqueous solution at 110 o C for 4 h in turn to remove the Al 2 O 3 support and metal catalysts, respectively. The(More)
Intervertebral disc (IVD) disease, the most common cause of disc failure and low back pain, is characterized by age-related changes in the adult disc. In this study we aimed to analyze the potential of thalidomide for the treatment of IVD disease, through identifying and explaining its anti-inflammatory and anti-catabolic activity in both in vitro IVD cell(More)
