As a better understanding of Beijing surface water ecosystems can provide clues for environmental management and public health, here, we report a study of the bacterial communities of five Beijing surface waters conducted using 454 pyrosequencing of 16S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) genes. We expected to observe a core bacterial community among the surface waters(More)
The retromer complex, composed of sorting nexin subunits and a Vps26/Vps29/Vps35 trimer, mediates sorting of retrograde cargo from the endosome to the trans-Golgi network. The retromer trimer subcomplex is an effector of Rab7 (Ypt7 in yeast). Whereas endosome targeting of human retromer has been shown to require Rab7-GTP, targeting of yeast retromer to the(More)
Rhodococcus sp. strain NCIMB 12038 utilizes naphthalene as a sole source of carbon and energy, and degrades naphthalene via salicylate and gentisate. To identify the genes involved in this pathway, we cloned and sequenced a 12-kb DNA fragment containing a gentisate catabolic gene cluster. Among the 13 complete open reading frames deduced from this fragment,(More)
Chinese herbal medicine has shown promise for heroin detoxification. This review extends a prior meta-analysis of Chinese herbal medicine for heroin detoxification, with particular attention to the time course of symptoms. Both English and Chinese databases were searched for randomized trials comparing Chinese herbal medicine to either alpha2-adrenergic(More)
Retromer is an evolutionarily conserved protein complex composed of the VPS26, VPS29, and VPS35 proteins that selects and packages cargo proteins into transport carriers that export cargo from the endosome. The mechanisms by which retromer is recruited to the endosome and captures cargo are unknown. We show that membrane recruitment of retromer is mediated(More)
At the basis of analysis of the mathematical model of the permanent-magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) and the principle of field-orientated vector control, a novel method for modeling and simulink of PMSM system based on SVPWM is proposed. In Matlab/simulink, the simulation model of the whole system is built, two control loops are used, which are inner(More)
This review extends a prior meta-analysis of acupuncture's utility for treating opioid detoxification, addressing the efficacy of acupuncture when combined with allopathic therapies. Both English and Chinese databases were searched for randomized trials comparing acupuncture combined with opioid agonist treatment versus opioid agonists alone for treating(More)
To identify genetic susceptibility loci for hepatitis B virus (HBV)-related hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in the Chinese population, we carried out a genome-wide association study (GWAS) in 2,514 chronic HBV carriers (1,161 HCC cases and 1,353 controls) followed by a 2-stage validation among 6 independent populations of chronic HBV carriers (4,319 cases(More)
In this study, an Agrobacteriurn tumefaciens-mediated transformation (ATMT) protocol was successfully developed for the genetic transformation of a taxol-producing fungus, Cladosporium cladosporioides MD2, and the co-cultivation conditions affecting the transformation efficiency were optimized. The optimal transformation conditions were that 1 ml of C.(More)
