OBJECTIVE Type 2 diabetes is characterized by insulin resistance, which is involved in the development of Alzheimer disease. This study aims to investigate the relationship between abnormal resting-state brain functional connectivity and insulin resistance in type 2 diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS A total of 30 patients with type 2 diabetes and 31(More)
The use of endosseous implanted materials is often limited by undesirable effects that may be due to macrophage-related inflammation. The purpose of this study was to fabricate a nanostructured surface on a titanium implant to regulate the macrophage inflammatory response and improve the performance of the implant. Anodization at 5 and 20 V as well as UV(More)
This study established and characterized a new cell line (MAF) from the fin of blunt snout bream (Megalobrama amblycephala), a freshwater fish cultivated in China. MAF cells proliferated well in medium 199 supplemented with 10 % fetal bovine serum at 28 °C and have been subcultured more than 95 times in almost a year. MAF cells were revived at 90–95 %(More)
The 16,299 bp long mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) of a tessaratomid bug, Eusthenes cupreus (Westwood), is reported and analyzed. The mitogenome represents the first sequenced complete mitogenome of the heteropteran family Tessaratomidae. The mitogenome of E. cuopreus is a typical circular DNA molecule with a total AT content of 74.1%, and contains 13(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS A realistic three-dimentional (3D) model of the larynx could be of value for the understanding of normal laryngeal motion and for studying pathological changes as well as in modeling potential therapy outcomes. The objective of this research was to present a new method of creating a computer model of the human larynx using data(More)
The genome size (C value) of eight commercially important fish species in China was measured using flow cytometry. Chicken (Gallus domesticus) erythrocytes were used as reference cells. When using propidium iodide (PI) as the fluorescent dye, genome sizes were 1.09 ± 0.08, 2.75 ± 0.12, 1.05 ± 0.05, 1.35 ± 0.11, 0.99 ± 0.05, 0.90 ± 0.08, 0.90 ± 0.07, and(More)
Chemotherapy is one of the main treatment options for cancer, but the effectiveness of chemotherapeutic drugs is severely limited due to their systemic toxicity. Therefore, the need for a more targeted approach in tumor treatment is obvious. A tumor-activated agent would decrease systemic toxicity as well as increase the efficacy of the treatment. It has(More)
The Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) is an emerging standard for capturing business processes. However, BPMN lacks a formal semantics and many of its features are subject to interpretation, which is hindered the BPMN as a standard to statically check the semantic correctness of models. The fact that BPMN integrates constructs from graph-oriented(More)
