We developed and evaluated a reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification (RT-LAMP) assay for detecting Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV). The sensitivity of the JEV RT-LAMP assay was in concordance with that of real-time RT-PCR and 10-fold more sensitive than that of conventional RT-PCR, which the detection limit was 24 copies/μl. The JEV(More)
Numerous clinical and epidemiological reports indicate that patients with history of vascular illness such as stroke are more likely to develop dementia as the clinical manifestation of Alzheimer's disease. However, there are little data regarding the pathologic mechanisms that link vascular risk factors to the factors associated with dementia onset. We(More)
The military population has a high disease burden of acute viral respiratory infections in China. To assess the efficacy and safety of a low-dose recombinant human interferon alpha-2b (rIFNalpha-2b) nasal spray in preventing acute viral respiratory infections in military population, we performed this randomized controlled trial. The results showed that(More)
Adult neurogenesis in the hippocampal dentate gyrus plays an important role in learning and memory. However, the precise contribution of the new neurons to hippocampal function remains controversial. Emerging evidence suggests that neurogenesis is important for pattern separation and for mitigating interference when similar items must be learned at(More)
Heterosis plays a decisive role in maize production worldwide, but its genetic basis remains unclear. In this study, we explored heterosis for ear-weight (EW)-related traits using a North Carolina Experiment III design (Design III) population derived from the elite maize hybrid Zhengdan 958. Quantitative trait loci (QTL) analysis was conducted based on(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the target organs for enterovirus 71 (EV71) in infected suckling mice. METHODS 5-day-old BALB/c suckling mice were infected with an EV71 strain. Tissues of the infected mice were processed for histopathological examination, including immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridization, ultrastructural observation. RESULTS Some mice developed(More)
We report an 8-month-old female infant with the fatal enterovirus 71 infection here. Clinically, she developed respiratory failure and severe pulmonary edema rapidly. Histologically, the lung specimen showed diffuse, severe pulmonary congestion and edema with focal intra-alveolar hemorrhage and typical features of acute encephalitis were easily identified(More)
Bronchial hyperresponsiveness (BHR) is the most common clinical manifestation identified in asthmatic patients, and intubation is the major factor that stimulates the airway of patients receiving general anesthetic. In the present study, nitric oxide synthase 1 (NOS1) was identified as a target gene of micro (mi)R‑146a using in silico analysis and(More)
Device-to-device (D2D) communication technology can significantly improve energy efficiency and offload base station traffic. It has become a new research focus in next generation mobile communications. In this paper, a file-sharing mechanism based on social networks is proposed for the D2D communication system underlaying cellular networks aiming at(More)
Method: Use Multiple Scattering Correction to eliminate the interference of scattering on spectrum in the process of field measurement so as to improve the accuracy of prediction model of tree canopy nitrogen content. Apple trees in Qixia of Yantai City were taken as the test material. The spectral reflectivity of apple tree canopy went through the First(More)
