AIM To investigate the effects of the major component of high-density lipoprotein apolipoprotein A-I (apoA-I) on the development of atherosclerosis in LPS-challenged ApoE(-/-) mice and the underlying mechanisms. METHODS Male ApoE-KO mice were daily injected with LPS (25 μg, sc) or PBS for 4 weeks. The LPS-challenged mice were intravenously injected with(More)
The Yangtze River (Chang Jiang) is the longest river in China and Asia, and the third-longest in the world, after the Nile in Africa and the Amazon in South America. The river is about 6,380 km long and with 1,800,000 km² of catchment area. The river has a mean annual runoff of 905 billion m 3 , with variation from 676 billion m 3 to 1360 billion m 3 , and(More)
Since 2008, the world's largest blooms of the green macroalgae, Ulva prolifera, have occurred every summer in the Yellow Sea, posing the question of whether these macroalgal blooms (MABs) have changed the phytoplankton biomass due to their perturbations of nutrient dynamics. We have attempted to address this question using long-term Moderate Resolution(More)
We investigated 32 net primary productivity (NPP) models by assessing skills to reproduce integrated NPP in the Arctic Ocean. The models were provided with two sources each of surface chlorophyll-a concentration (chlorophyll), photosynthetically available radiation (PAR), sea surface temperature (SST), and mixed-layer depth (MLD). The models were most(More)
The CO 2 source or sink status and variability in the coastal ocean are the subjects of highly debate. Satellite remote sensing offers an avenue for expanding observations and analyzing temporal and spatial variability of the environment of the ocean. In the present study, the algorithm for surface layer seawater partial pressure of CO 2 (pCO 2sw) of the(More)
With the rapid industrialization and urbanization, more and more solid have been emitted into the Pearl River Estuary. The suspended sediment concentration is one of the most important water quality parameters. With in-situ optical data and suspended sediment data collected on four cruises from 2004 to 2006 in the Pearl River Estuary, analysis shows that(More)
—Euphotic layer of the sea refers to the layer where the phytoplankton can photosynthesize. Therefore the retrieval of the euphotic depth is in favor of estimating ocean primary productivity. This paper introduces an algorithm for retrieval of euphotic depth from ocean color remote sensing data, and dig out the relationship between the euphotic depth of the(More)
