The various cell types in the vertebrate retina arise from a pool of common progenitors. The way that the cell types are specified has been a long-standing issue. Decades of research have yielded a large body of information regarding the involvement of extrinsic factors, and only recently has the function of intrinsic factors begun to emerge.

Mollusks living in seas can accumulate heavy metals, and may serve as excellent passive biomonitors. During a period of 1 year, bioaccumulation of As, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Hg, Mn, Ni, Pb, Se, and Zn was examined in nine kinds of mollusks (Rapana venosa, Neverita didyma, Scapharca subcrenata, Mytilus edulis, Amusium, Crassostrea talienwhanensis, Meretix(More)
In this paper, a sensitive, simple and direct method for simultaneous determination of glucose, ribose, isomaltose and maltose in serum sample by high-performance anion-exchange chromatography coupled with integrated pulsed amperometric detection was developed. The four target analytes were easily and completely separated on an anion-exchange column at a(More)
A technique for the speciation of selenomethylcysteine (SeMeCys), selenocystine (SeCys), selenite [Se(IV)] and selenomethionine (SeMet) was established in this paper using high-performance anion-exchange chromatography coupled with atomic fluorescence spectrometry (HPAEC-AFS). Analytes were separated on an AminoPac PA10 column and then digested by on-line(More)
In this paper, we sequenced the complete mitogenome of the English grain aphid, Sitobion avenae. The mitogenome was mainly consisted of 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, 2 rRNA genes, and 2 large noncoding regions. The 15,180-bp mitogenome with a high A + T content (84.22%) was arranged in the same gene order as that of the ancestral insect. The(More)
The paper compared the performance of two kinds of silver working electrode in electrochemical detector-the disposable and conventional electrode for the determination of iodide using high-performance anion-exchange chromatography (HPAEC) hyphenated with pulsed amperometric detection (PAD). The comparisons were carried out on the time of equilibration, long(More)
PURPOSE To study the possibility of generating photoreceptors through programming RPE transdifferentiation by examining cell differentiation after transplantation into the developing chick eye. METHODS RPE was isolated, and the cells were dissociated, cultured, and guided to transdifferentiate by infection with retrovirus expressing neuroD (RCAS-neuroD),(More)
Snakehead fish (Ophiocephalus argus cantor), silver carp (Hypophthalmichthys molitrtix), crucian carp (Carassius carassius), and common carp (Cyprinus carpio) are four common freshwater fish species in China. In this study, the level of methylmercury (MeHg), total mercury (T-Hg), and total selenium (T-Se) in muscle samples of these four fish species from(More)
Photoreceptors are highly specialized sensory neurons in the retina, and their degeneration results in blindness. Replacement with developing photoreceptor cells promises to be an effective therapy, but it requires a supply of new photoreceptors, because the neural retina in human eyes lacks regeneration capability. We report efficient generation of(More)
A sensitive non-derivatization method was developed for the analysis of apramycin and impurites using hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC) and charged aerosol detection (CAD). Sample was pretreated with an effective SPE method (recovery >90%) to remove interference with apramycin impurities from sulfate, then analyzed with direct injection.(More)
