PURPOSE Radiation and wound combined injury represents a major clinical challenge because of the synergistic interactions that lead to higher morbidity and mortality than either insult would produce singly. The purpose of this study was to develop a mouse ear punch model to study the physiological mechanisms underlying radiation effects on healing wounds.(More)
Core-shell Si nanowires are very promising anode materials. Here, we synthesize vertically aligned carbon nanotubes (CNTs) with relatively large diameters and large inter-wire spacing as core wires and demonstrate a CNT-Si core-shell wire composite as a lithium ion battery (LIB) anode. Owing to the rationally engineered core structure, the composite shows(More)
In this paper, we analyze a general predator-prey model with state feedback impulsive harvesting strategies in which the prey species displays a strong Allee effect. We firstly show the existence of order-1 heteroclinic cycle and order-1 positive periodic solutions by using the geometric theory of differential equations for the unperturbed system. Based on(More)
The Chinese mitten crab (Eriocheir sinensis) is one of the most important aquaculture species in China. To discover single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) markers for this species, 45 samples were used as templates for PCR validation, and 42 SNP markers were developed in this study. The results showed that the minor allele frequency ranged from 0.0111 to(More)
A novel MnO2 network-Ni/PVDF double shell/core fiber membrane is synthesized for the first time as an anode material for lithium ion batteries. The freestanding MnO2 nanosheet network is grown directly onto a conductive network-Ni/PVDF shell/core fiber membrane 3D current collector, avoiding the application of binders and conductive additives and(More)
The electrochemical performance of a thick Ge film (ca. 1020 nm) is dramatically improved by adopting vertically aligned carbon nanotube (VACNT) arrays as a 3D current collector. The VACNT-supported thick Ge film exhibits high reversible specific capacity (1352 mAh g(-1) ), and excellent capacity retention (97.2% after 100 cycles) and rate capability (843(More)
Solid solution LiMn₁/₃Fe₃Co₁/₃₃PO₄/C ternary materials were prepared by sol-gel method with glycine or citric acid as chelating agents. SEM images indicate that the particles are well distributed with regular morphologies, and the particle sizes are around 300 nm for both samples. The cyclic voltammetry (CV) and charge-discharge curves show that the(More)
