With an increase in growth irradiance (from 15 to 100 % of full sunlight, I15 to I100), the maximum net photosynthetic rate (P max), compensation (CI) and saturation irradiances of A. annua increased. At full sunlight, A. annua had a high capacity of photosynthesis, while at low irradiance it maintained a relatively high P max with a low CI. The height and(More)
Horseradish peroxidase (HRP) tracings showed a bidirectional connection between the optic tectum (OT) and the ipsilateral nucleus isthmi (NI) pars magnocellularis (Imc) in nocturnal Gekko gekko and diurnal Shinisaurus crocodilurus. We found that, in addition to a direct neuronal pathway, there is an indirect pathway from OT to Imc via the nucleus profundus(More)
The aim of this study was to present a non-trypsin 3D cell culture method with a reversible thermosensitive HBCS hydrogel. In this study, hydroxybutyl chitosan (HBCS) was synthesized by grafting hydroxybutyl groups on chitosan molecule chains. The prepared HBCS was water-soluble, and the reversible phase transformation temperature was 26 °C. Scanning(More)
This report studies visual responses of the isthmic units in Gekko gekko and Shinisaurus crocodilurus using extracellular recording and cobalt sulfide marking techniques. Our results indicate that: (i) the nucleus isthmi pars magnocellularis (Imc) is a visual center; (ii) there are luxotonic units in Imc; (iii) Imc units respond vigorously to moving(More)
We investigated the risk factors for pulmonary hypertension (PH) in patients receiving maintenance peritoneal dialysis (MPD). A group of 180 end-stage renal disease patients (124 men and 56 women; mean age: 56.43±8.36) were enrolled in our study, which was conducted between January 2009 and June 2014. All of the patients received MPD treatment in the(More)
Saturation (SI) and compensation (CI) irradiances [µmol(photon) m−2 s−1] were 383.00±18.40 and 12.95±0.42 for wild C. nitidissima (in mid-July) and 691.00±47.39 and 21.91±1.28 for wild C. sinensis, respectively. C. nitidissima is a shade tolerant species, whereas C. sinensis has a wide ecological range of adaptability to irradiance. Both wild and cultivated(More)
