Three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction is the last and an essential step toward high-resolution structural determination in single-particle cryo-electron microscopy (cryoEM). We have implemented a new algorithm for reconstructing 3D structures of macromolecular complexes with icosahedral symmetry from cryoEM images. Icosahedral symmetry-adapted functions(More)
Fasudil hydrochloride (FH), a Rho kinase inhibitor, is used to treat neurological diseases. This study aims to elucidate the anti-dementia role of FH in Alzheimer's disease. Twenty-four Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into four groups: (1) sham-operated group (control), (2) sham-operated followed by FH administration group (sham+FH), (3)(More)
A method for three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction of macromolecule assembles, that is, octahedral symmetrical adapted functions (OSAFs) method, was introduced in this paper and a series of formulations for reconstruction by OSAF method were derived. To verify the feasibility and advantages of the method, two octahedral symmetrical macromolecules, that is,(More)
Both Bloch wave (BW) and real space multislice (RS-MS) methods are based on the Schrödinger equation. The BW method is considered to be the most accurate and popular simulation method used in various simulations, and it has solved many crystallographic problems. In this paper, we verified that the aforementioned two methods are similar to each other with(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the relationship between insulin resistance and clustering of risk factors of cerebrovascular disease. METHODS The serum concentrations of fasting glucose, insulin, lipids, the activities of tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA) and plasminogen activator inhibitor-1(PAI-1), and the level of blood pressure were measured in 159(More)
In this paper, we used Niggli reduced cell theory to determine lattice constants of a micro/nano crystal by using electron diffraction patterns. The Niggli reduced cell method enhanced the accuracy of lattice constant measurement obviously, because the lengths and the angles of lattice vectors of a primitive cell can be measured directly on the electron(More)
Upconversion tri-color luminescence of Er(3+)/Tm(3+)/Yb(3+) doped BaTiO3 nanocrystals is observed under the excitation of a 980 nm laser diode. Especially, Er(3+) emission has a considerable contribution to the blue portion of the UC spectra, different from the ever-reported results, in which blue emission originates only from Tm(3+). This realization is(More)
In this paper, we introduce a fast reciprocal space method for image simulation. It is well known that the scattering matrix (SM) P with NxN elements consists of N different structure factors and N different excitation errors. However, most structure factors of the SM P are extremely small so that they can be neglected. Therefore, the size of the SM P is(More)
