We isolated PaAP3, a homolog of the class B MADS-box transcription factor gene APETALA3 (AP3), from the monoecious plant London plane tree (Platanus acerifolia Willd.). PaAP3 encodes a protein that shares good levels of identity with class B genes from Arabidopsis thaliana (35 and 51 % identity with PISTILLATA (PI) and AP3, respectively), and also with(More)
OBJECTIVE Reports suggest that catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT(L/L)) (Val(158)/Met) and monoamine oxidase B (MAOB) intron 13 genotype polymorphism is associated with PD. To understand the ethnicity-specific effects of genetic polymorphism, we performed a case-control study of the association between PD susceptibility and polymorphism of MAOB and COMT,(More)
The intensity of Galactic cosmic rays is nearly isotropic because of the influence of magnetic fields in the Milky Way. Here, we present two-dimensional high-precision anisotropy measurement for energies from a few to several hundred teraelectronvolts (TeV), using the large data sample of the Tibet Air Shower Arrays. Besides revealing finer details of the(More)
The patterned visually evoked potential (pVEP) and patterned electroretinogram (pERG) after light and dark adaptation were investigated in 10 visually normal human observers. The influence of retinal preadaptation on the pVEP appeared to be dependent on the stimulus field size. With a 6 degree field size retinal adaptation effects were not apparent, but(More)
Since 1996, a hybrid experiment consisting of the emulsion chamber and burst detector array and the Tibet-II air-shower array has been operated at Yangbajing (4300 m above sea level, 606 g/cm 2) in Tibet. This experiment can detect air-shower cores, called as burst events, accompanied by air showers in excess of about 100 TeV. We observed about 4300 burst(More)
Reliable and precise methods for non-invasive diagnostics of sub-picosecond electron bunches are required for new accelerator facilities (FEL, LWFA, et al.). Measurements of spectral characteristics of coherent radiation generated by such bunches using interferometer allow to determine a bunch length [1]. Here we present a compare experimental study between(More)

Using the data taken from Tibet II High Density (HD) Array (1997 February-1999 September) and Tibet-III array (1999 November-2005 November), our previous northern sky survey for TeV γ−ray point sources has now been updated by a factor of 2.8 improved statistics. From 0.0 • to 60.0 • in declination (Dec) range, no new TeV γ−ray point sources with(More)
We give two parametrized versions of the uniformization theorem of a noncompact, non-hyperbolic Riemann surface using different but complementary methods. The first constructs the uniformizing maps directly in terms of coordinates via classical complex analysis and provides a canonical form for the double sections of a conic bundle over a noncompact complex(More)
