In the present study, quantitative trait loci (QTLs) controlling seed storability based on relative germination rate (%) were dissected using a saturated linkage map and a recombinant inbred lines (RILs) derived from a cross of japonica cultivar Asominori (Oryza sativa L.) and indica cultivar IR24 (Oryza sativa L.). A total of three QTLs (qRGR-1, qRGR-3 and(More)
Three new dioxopiperazine metabolites (1-3), together with two known compounds, N-acetyltyramine (4) and cyclo-(Ala-Val) (5), were isolated from a marine-derived fungus Aspergillus fumigatus Fres. Their structures were established by spectroscopic methods. Their cytotoxic activities against the K562 cell line were preliminarily evaluated by the(More)
A new gliotoxin analogue (1), as well as four known compounds gliotoxin (2), bisdethiobis (methylthio) gliotoxin (3), bis-N-norgliovictin (4) and didehydrobisdethiobis (methylthio) gliotoxin (5), were isolated from a culture of marine-derived fungus Aspergillus fumigatus Fres. The structure of 1 was determined on the basis of spectroscopic methods. All five(More)
Metamaterials have attracted intensive research interest in recent years because their optical properties have a strong dependence on the geometry of metamaterial molecules rather than the material composition. [ 1–3 ] This feature has inspired the creation and tailoring of exotic properties, such as a negative refractive index, [ 4 , 5 ] perfect(More)
Two new hetero-spirocyclic gamma-lactams, azaspirofurans A (1) and B (2), had been isolated from a marine sediment-derived fungus Aspergillus sydowi D2-6. Their structures were determined by the chemical evidence and spectral analyses. Compound 1 exhibited cytotoxicity against A549 cell line with the IC50 value of 10 microM by MTT method.
New demonstrations of effective interaction between light and artificially electromagnetic interface, or the metasurface, have stimulated intensive research interests on control of light to realize applications in beam steering, optical imaging and light focusing, etc. Here we reported a new type of planar metasurface of which every individual metamolecule(More)
This paper presents the design and analysis of a liquid refractive index sensor that utilizes a unique physical mechanism of resonant optical tunneling effect (ROTE). The sensor consists of two hemicylindrical prisms, two air gaps, and a microfluidic channel. All parts can be microfabricated using an optical resin NOA81. Theoretical study shows that this(More)
OBJECTIVE Twenty-six species of human parasites were recorded in Zhejiang Province in 1987-1989 as a part of the national investigation on the distribution of human parasites, and the total prevalence was 80.2%. In order to find out possible changes on the composition of parasite species and decrease of prevalence after control intervention particularly(More)
We report a case of an infertile man with severe oligoasthenoteratozoospermia with a partial azoospermia factor b (AZFb) deletion and duplication region within chromosome Yp11.2. The hormonal profile was normal for serum concentrations of follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, testosterone and oestradiol. The patient, who showed a 46,XY(More)
