Aquaporins (AQPs) are members of a superfamily of integral membrane proteins and play a significant role in the transportation of small molecules across membranes. However, currently little is known about the AQP genes in Chinese cabbage (Brassica rapa ssp. pekinensis). In this study, a genome-wide analysis was carried out to identify the AQP genes in(More)
Because of renewed interest in the progression, stabilization, and regression of atherosclerotic plaques, it has become important to develop methods for characterizing structural features of plaques in situ and noninvasively. We present a nondestructive method for ex vivo quantification of 2 solid-phase components of plaques: crystalline cholesterol and(More)
Accumulation of lipids in atherosclerotic plaques causes progressive narrowing of the arterial lumen, often followed by thrombosis and ischemia. Currently several different methods, most requiring disruption of the plaque, are used to study the physical properties of lipids accumulated in plaques, and lipid composition is typically determined by chemical(More)
In the same area, the terrain details described by DEM are gradually generalized and primary terrain features are only retained in the coarser-resolution DEM. In this paper, wavelet multiresolution analysis and Radical Law selection principles were combined to model the terrain generalizing processes and derive three different scale-parameter DEMs based on(More)
NADP-dependent malic enzymes (NADP-MEs) play essential roles in both normal development and stress responses in plants. Here, genome-wide analysis was performed to identify 65 putative NADP-ME genes from 12 crucifer species. These NADP-ME genes were grouped into five categories of syntenic orthologous genes and were divided into three clades of a phylogenic(More)
A capacitor-based circuit model is proposed to explain the electrochemical delamination of two-dimensional materials from their native substrates where produced gas bubbles squeeze into the interface. The delamination is actually the electric breakdown of the capacitor formed between the solution and substrate. To facilitate the procedure, the backside of(More)
