Liver, pancreas and lung originate from the presumptive foregut in temporal and spatial proximity. This requires precisely orchestrated transcriptional activation and repression of organ-specific gene expression within the same cell. Here, we show distinct roles for the chromatin remodelling factor and transcriptional repressor Histone deacetylase 1 (Hdac1)(More)
Apolipoprotein C-II (APOC2) is an obligatory activator of lipoprotein lipase. Human patients with APOC2 deficiency display severe hypertriglyceridemia while consuming a normal diet, often manifesting xanthomas, lipemia retinalis and pancreatitis. Hypertriglyceridemia is also an important risk factor for development of cardiovascular disease. Animal models(More)

Infrared quantum cutting involving Yb3+ 950-1,000 nm (2 F5/2 → 2 F7/2) and Ho3+ 1,007 nm (5S2,5F4 → 5I6) as well as 1,180 nm (5I6 → 5I8) emissions is achieved in BaGdF5: Ho3+, Yb3+ nanoparticles which are synthesized by a facile hydrothermal route. The mechanisms through first- and second-order energy transfers were analyzed by the dependence of Yb3+ doping(More)
Pristine Ag 3 PO 4 microspheres were synthesized by a co-precipitation method, followed by being calcined at different temperatures to obtain a series of calcined Ag 3 PO 4 photocatalysts. This work aims to investigate the origin of activity and stability enhancement for Ag 3 PO 4 photocatalyst after calcination based on the systematical analyses of the(More)
Monoclinic BiVO 4 photocatalysts with porous structures were synthesized by a two-step approach without assistance of any templates. The as-prepared samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction pattern (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Brunauer–Emmett–Teller (BET), ultraviolet–visible (UV–vis) diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS), photocurrent(More)
The evolutionary origins of the hypoxia-sensitive cells that trigger amniote respiratory reflexes - carotid body glomus cells, and 'pulmonary neuroendocrine cells' (PNECs) - are obscure. Homology has been proposed between glomus cells, which are neural crest-derived, and the hypoxia-sensitive 'neuroepithelial cells' (NECs) of fish gills, whose embryonic(More)
A novel multi-microphone speech enhancement method with low computational complexity using the generalized sidelobe canceller (GSC) structure based on LMS (least mean square) algorithm is proposed under stationary noise condition. In adaptive module of the presented method, speech signals in one frame share the same weight and update simultaneously instead(More)
