Wolfberry (Lycium barbarum L.) fruits of three cultivars ('Damaye', 'Baihua' and 'Ningqi No.1') were harvested at five different ripening stages and evaluated for sugars and organic acids. Fructose, glucose and total sugar contents increased continually through development and reached their maxima at 34 days after full bloom (DAF). Fructose and glucose were(More)
BACKGROUND It has been proven that clusterin is a newly apoptosis-related factor and upregulates in many tumors. It plays important roles in carcinogenesis and tumor progression. The antiapoptosis of clusterin seems to be relative to other antiapoptosis factors. The aim of this study is to investigate the expression and significance of clusterin in(More)
Our proposed local vector autoregressive (LVAR) model has time-varying parameters that allow it to be safely used in both stationary and non-stationary situations. The estimation is conducted over an interval of local homogeneity where the parameters are approximately constant. The local interval is identified in a sequential testing procedure. Numerical(More)
Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome (WAS) pediatric patients exhibit a deficiency in humoral immune memory. However, the mechanism by which Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (WASP) regulates the differentiation and activation of memory B cells remains elusive. Here we examine the early activation events of memory B cells from the peripheral blood mononuclear cells of(More)
We propose the use of a local autoregressive (LAR) model for adaptive estimation and forecasting of three of China's key macroeconomic variables: GDP growth, inflation and the 7-day interbank lending rate. The approach takes into account possible structural changes in the data-generating process to select a local homogeneous interval for model estimation,(More)
Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (WASp) is a hematopoietic-specific regulator of actin nucleation. Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome (WAS) patients show immunodeficiencies, most of which have been attributed to defective T-cell functions. T follicular helper (Tfh) cells are the major CD4(+) T-cell subset with specialized B-cell helper capabilities. Aberrant Tfh(More)
