Cystine knot toxins (CKTs) in spider venoms represent a rich source of novel ligands for varied ion channels. Here, we identified 95 novel putative CKT precursors by analyzing expressed sequence tags of the tarantula Chilobrachys jingzhao venom gland. Phylogenetics analyses revealed one orphan family and six families with sequence similarity to known(More)
Size-resolved and bulk activation properties of aerosols were measured at a regional/suburban site in the North China Plain (NCP), which is occasionally heavily polluted by anthropogenic aerosol particles and gases. A Cloud Condensation Nuclei (CCN) closure study is conducted with bulk CCN number concentration (NCCN) and calculated CCN number concentration(More)
The inactivation of lobster muscle D-glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (D-glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate:NAD+ oxidoreductase (phosphorylating), EC 1.2.1.12) (GAPDH) during guanidine hydrochloride (GdnHCl) denaturation has been compared with its state of aggregation and unfolding, by light scattering and fluorescence measurements. The enzyme first(More)
BACKGROUND A variant of conjoined twins is one in which one twin is incomplete. CASE A female infant was born vaginally at 40 weeks' gestation to a healthy primipara. No important abnormalities were noted during prenatal examinations. The infant was fully developed in all external aspects except for a parasitic body conjoined with her sacrococcygeal(More)
Thermal adaptation of gross primary production and ecosystem respiration has been well documented over broad thermal gradients. However, no study has examined Correspondence to: W. Yuan (wenpingyuancn@yahoo.com) their interaction as a function of temperature, i.e. the thermal responses of net ecosystem exchange of carbon (NEE). In this study, we constructed(More)
During denaturation by GuHCl, papain shows a rapid decrease in activity with increasing concentrations of the denaturant followed by an intermediate stage of relatively little change from 1 to 2 M before complete inactivation at 4 M GuHCl. At GuHCl concentrations lower than 2 M, enzyme activity is more sensitive to GuHCl than noticeable conformation changes(More)
The inactivation of D-glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (D-glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate:NAD+ oxidoreductase (phosphorylating) EC 1.2.1.12) (GAPDH) during thermal denaturation has been compared to its dissociation-aggregation measured by light scattering and changes in secondary structure measured by CD in the far ultraviolet. The inactivation at 38.5(More)
We reviewed the clinical characteristics, required intervention and short- and long-term outcomes in obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) patients requiring intensive care. A retrospective, single-centre, observational cohort study was undertaken in a multidisciplinary teaching medical and surgical intensive care unit. Adult patients with OSA (apnoea-hypopnoea(More)
The histological structures of the roots of Morinda officinalis How of different ages were observed, the distribution and accumulation of anthraquinones in the root were studied with the help of paraffin section, fluorescent microscope and ultraviolet spectrophotometer. The results indicated that the mature structures of the roots of M. officinalis were(More)
