A measurement of the energy dependence of antineutrino disappearance at the Daya Bay reactor neutrino experiment is reported. Electron antineutrinos (ν¯(e)) from six 2.9  GW(th) reactors were detected with six detectors deployed in two near (effective baselines 512 and 561 m) and one far (1579 m) underground experimental halls. Using 217 days of data, 41(More)
A search for light sterile neutrino mixing was performed with the first 217 days of data from the Daya Bay Reactor Antineutrino Experiment. The experiment's unique configuration of multiple baselines from six 2.9 GW(th) nuclear reactors to six antineutrino detectors deployed in two near (effective baselines 512 m and 561 m) and one far (1579 m) underground(More)
Constipation is one of the most common gastrointestinal complaints worldwide. This study was performed to determine whether Bifidobacterium adolescentis exerts inter-strain differences in alleviating constipation induced by loperamide in BALB/c mice and to analyze the main reasons for these differences. BALB/c mice underwent gavage with B. adolescentis(More)
We report a new measurement of electron antineutrino disappearance using the fully constructed Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment. The final two of eight antineutrino detectors were installed in the summer of 2012. Including the 404 days of data collected from October 2012 to November 2013 resulted in a total exposure of 6.9×10^{5} GW_{th}  ton days, a(More)
We isolated and characterized ten polymorphic microsatellite loci in the Chong’an moustache toad Leptobrachium liui, nine novel loci designed for this species and one locus from cross-species amplification. Loci were screened in 43 individuals of a single population. The number of alleles per locus ranged from 3 to 17, on average of 10. The average observed(More)
We isolated and characterized eleven polymorphic tetranucleotide microsatellite loci in the spiny-bellied frog (Quasipaa boulengeri). The loci were screened in 62 individuals from two natural populations. All loci were variable, with the number of alleles ranging from 8 to 26. The average observed and expected heterozygosity per locus ranged from 0.500 to(More)
Experimens were performed on 36 cats, showing that stimulation of the central end of the left major splanchnic nerve induced an increase of the plasma cortisol level. The centripetal effect was abolished by lesioning the septal nuclei, just as the same as injection of propranolol into the nuclei; but phentolamine had no such preventive action. All the(More)

HIV-1 integrase (IN), which has no cellular counterpart, has been intensely studied over the past 15 years and has been fully validated as a therapeutic target with the first FDA approved IN inhibitor raltegravir. The quinolone acid GS-9137 (elvitegravir), which most probably will became the next candidate of IN inhibitors, is in the process of enrolling(More)
In the present study, a single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) aptamer binding to Bifidobacterium breve with high avidity and selectivity was selected through a whole-bacterium-based systemic evolution of ligands using an exponential enrichment (SELEX) process. Following 12 rounds of selection specific for B. breve, three FAM-labeled aptamers were chosen for flow(More)
