Decomposing regulatory networks into functional modules is a first step toward deciphering the logical structure of complex networks. We propose a systematic approach to reconstructing transcription modules (defined by a transcription factor and its target genes) and identifying conditionsperturbations under which a particular transcription module is(More)
Excess acetate has long been an issue for the production of recombinant proteins in E. coli cells. Recently, improvements in acetate tolerance have been achieved through the use of genetic strategies and medium supplementation with certain amino acids and pyrimidines. The aim of our study was to evaluate an alternative to improve the acetate tolerance of E.(More)
To assure justice and science of scientific and technological project evaluation, avoiding the corrupt transaction in the process of project evaluation, it is necessary to evaluation the experts' performance with a scientific method. The main factors that affect the experts' performance evaluation were analyzed. To avoid the effect of individual subjective(More)
N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors (NMDARs) containing different GluN2 subunits play distinct roles in synaptic plasticity. Such differences may not only be determined by the channel properties, but also by differential surface distribution and synaptic localization. In the present study, using a Cy3-conjugated Fab fragment of the GFP antibody to label(More)
Baicalein is a natural flavonoid that possesses notable anti-inflammatory effects. In this study, we detected whether baicalein protects against inflammatory response in unilateral ureteral obstruction mice model to ameliorate tubulointerstitial fibrosis. Baicalein treatment significantly attenuated tubulointerstitial fibrosis by markedly reducing(More)
Decomposing transcriptional regulatory networks into functional modules and determining logical relations between them is the first step toward understanding transcriptional regulation at the system level. Modules based on analysis of genome-scale data can serve as the basis for inferring combinatorial regulation and for building mathematical models to(More)
Phosphodiesterase (PDE)-2 is a component of the nitric-oxide synthase (NOS)/guanylyl cyclase signaling pathway in the brain. Given recent evidence that pharmacologically induced changes in NO-cGMP signaling can affect anxiety-related behaviors, the effects of the PDE2 inhibitors (2-(3,4-dimethoxybenzyl)-7-det-5-methylimidazo-[5,1-f][1,2,4]triazin-4(3H)-one)(More)
