To investigate the effect of light intensity and temperature on the biosynthesis and accumulation of quality-related metabolites, field grown tea plants were shaded by Black Net and Nano-insulating Film (with additional 2-4°C cooling effect) with un-shaded plants as a control. Young shoots were subjected to UPLC-Q-TOF MS followed by multivariate statistical(More)
The chlorotic tea variety Huangjinya, a natural mutant, contains enhanced levels of free amino acids in its leaves, which improves the drinking quality of its brewed tea. Consequently, this chlorotic mutant has a higher economic value than the non-chlorotic varieties. However, the molecular mechanisms behind the increased levels of free amino acids in this(More)
BACKGROUND As the predominant secondary metabolic pathway in tea plants, flavonoid biosynthesis increases with increasing temperature and illumination. However, the concentration of most flavonoids decreases greatly in light-sensitive tea leaves when they are exposed to light, which further improves tea quality. To reveal the metabolism and potential(More)
Ephrin-A2, a member of the Eph/ephrin family, is associated with tumorigenesis and tumor progression. This study aimed to assess the diagnostic and prognostic value of both serum and tissue levels of Ephrin-A2 in prostate cancer (PCa) management. One hundred and forty-five frozen prostate tissues, 55 paraffin-embedded prostate tissues, 88 serum samples, and(More)
Rotary valve is mostly used as a control valve in hydraulic steering system. The existences of flow separation, cavitation and other phenomena in hydraulic steering system usually generate flow noise. Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) equations, Rayleigh cavitation model and RNG k-ε turbulence model equations governing the flow field hydraulic(More)
