Oesophageal cancer is one of the most aggressive cancers and is the sixth leading cause of cancer death worldwide. Approximately 70% of global oesophageal cancer cases occur in China, with oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) being the histopathological form in the vast majority of cases (>90%). Currently, there are limited clinical approaches for the(More)
This study evaluated the effect of electro-acupuncture (EA) on the NGF, BDNF and NT-3 expression in spared L6 dorsal root ganglion (DRG) in cats subjected to bilateral removal of L1-L5 and L7-S2 DRG, using immunostaining, in situ hybridization and RT-PCR. The positive products of NGF, NT-3 protein and mRNA in the small and large neurons of spared L6 DRG in(More)
BACKGROUND Subseafloor sediments accumulate large amounts of organic and inorganic materials that contain a highly diverse microbial ecosystem. The aim of this study was to survey the bacterial community of subseafloor sediments from the South China Sea. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS Pyrosequencing of over 265,000 amplicons of the V3 hypervariable region(More)
Based on the complex network theory, this paper proposes a weighting parameters based on the voltage and reactance of the transmission lines, and a new method to measure the vulnerability of power grid through the betweenness index. This paper gives a new weight formula and a algorithm to identification of vulnerable lines. The analysis has been carried out(More)
Ophiocordyceps sinensis (syn. Cordyceps sinensis) is a highly valued medicinal fungus. This entomopathogen has a limited distribution, has been overharvested in the wild, and its stromata have not been artificially cultivated. Another entomopathogenic fungus, Cordyceps militaris (commonly known as orange caterpillar fungus), has chemical capacities similar(More)
This paper presents design and measurement results of power amplifier (PA) for wireless local area network (WLAN) at 5 GHz using standard commercial CMOS 0.18 um process. The two-stage amplifier is implemented with all components fully integrated on chip including output matching network. Test results show that the power amplifier can achieve power gain of(More)
Pseudonocardians A-C (2-4), three new diazaanthraquinone derivatives, along with a previously synthesized compound deoxynyboquinone (1), were produced by the strain SCSIO 01299, a marine actinomycete member of the genus Pseudonocardia, isolated from deep-sea sediment of the South China Sea. The structures of compounds 1-4 were determined by mass(More)
The underlying mechanisms for acquired resistance to epidermal growth factor receptor-tyrosine kinase inhibitors (EGFR-TKIs) in about 30%-40% of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients remain elusive. Recent studies have suggested that activation of epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and type 1 insulin-like growth factor receptor (IGF1R) is(More)
This study investigates the design of a humanoid ping-pong robot system with a 7-DOFs redundant arm. The design of the arm mechanism, real-time binocular vision system, and a distributed control structure was presented. The methods for ball trajectory prediction and motion planning for the ping-pong racket were proposed. A Jacobian pseudoinverse method(More)
