In recent years, organometal trihalide perovskites have emerged as promising materials for low-cost, flexible, and highly efficient solar cells. Despite their processing advantages, before the technology can be commercialized the poor stability of the organic-inorganic hybrid perovskite materials with regard to humidity, heat, light, and oxygen has be to(More)
With the help of Fe3O4 nagnetic nanoparticles as a solid carrier and an excellent tool for separation, six SNP loci (rs2279115 of BCL2 gene, rs804270 of NEIL2 gene, rs909253 of LTA gene, rs2294008 of PSCA gene, rs3765524 and rs10509670 of PLCE1 gene) were selected to evaluate their relation to gastric cancer risk. Using two kinds of functionalized magnetic(More)
To better understand the mechanism involved in ethylene-induced chilling tolerance in harvested banana fruit, a gel-based proteomic study followed by MALDI-TOF-TOF MS was carried out. Banana fruit were treated with 500 ppm ethylene for 12 h and then stored at 6°C. During cold storage, the chilling tolerance was assessed and the proteins from the peel were(More)
A rapid progress has been made in the field of lymphatic research during the last 15 years. This includes better understanding of the cellular events and molecular players involved in the lymphatic vessel formation and remodeling in development. The key players identified in developmental lymphangiogenesis, including vascular endothelial cell growth(More)
OBJECTIVE The genetic program underlying lymphatic development is still incompletely understood. This study aims to dissect the role of receptor tyrosine kinase with immunoglobulin-like and EGF (epidermal growth factor)-like domains 1 (Tie1) and Tie2 in lymphatic formation using genetically modified mouse models. APPROACH AND RESULTS We generated(More)
The first critical step in making vertically aligned carbon nanotube (VACNT)-based thermal interface materials is to transfer the VACNTs on a large scale. Although VACNTs have been transferred by several methods, they were only transferred inadvertently in most cases. Here we report well-controlled weak-oxidation-assisted transfer of VACNTs. Specifically,(More)
Litchi fruit (Litchi chinensis Sonn.) is highly perishable after harvest. The shelf life is only 4-6days under ambient temperature storage conditions, which has restricted the development of the litchi industry to a considerable extent. To investigate the molecular mechanisms of litchi fruit senescence, comparative proteomic analysis was carried out on(More)
Suitable reference gene (RGs) is the prerequisite for accurate normalization of real-time quantitative PCR (RT-qPCR) data. However, previous results are diverse in various researches that focused on selecting stable RGs. This study aims at systematically assessing various RGs in plants under salt stress or drought stress by collection of geNorm rankings of(More)
To investigate the modification of cell wall polysaccharides in relation to aril breakdown in harvested longan fruit, three pectin fractions (WSP, water soluble pectin; CSP, CDTA-soluble pectin; ASP, alkali soluble pectin) and one hemicellulose fraction (4 M KOH-SHC, 4 M KOH-soluble hemicellulose) were extracted, and their contents, monosaccharide(More)
This paper introduces a kind of rescue vehicle with laminated multilayer platforms used in the case of fire on large area and many floors, as well as the virtual prototype of that vehicle established with Solidworks. The special effects of the flame, smoke and characters is handled with particle system in 3DS MAX to accomplish in the scene, in order to(More)
