Geographic variation has been of interest to both health planners and social epidemiologists. However, while the major focus of interest of planners has been on variation in health care spending, social epidemiologists have focused on health; and while social epidemiologists have observed strong associations between poor health and poverty, planners have(More)
In this paper, the global projective synchronization of fractional-order neural networks is investigated. First, a sufficient condition in the sense of Caputo's fractional derivation to ensure the monotonicity of the continuous and differential functions and a new fractional-order differential inequality are derived, which play central roles in the(More)
The gastropod mollusc, Oncomelania hupensis is a unique intermediate host for the human parasite Schistosoma japonicum. It is a primary factor for the epidemic of schistosomiasis and its distribution is consistent with the epidemic area of schistosomiasis. Here we report the functional properties of hemocyanin of O. hupensis (OhH), a copper-containing(More)
We investigate the influence of temperature on the self-assembly of 2,6,11-tricarboxydecyloxy-3,7,10-triundecyloxy triphenylene (asym-TTT) adsorbed on HOPG using scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) at the liquid/solid interface. We show that the packing structures of 2D self-assembled asym-TTT can be precisely tuned by adjusting the substrate temperature.(More)
Building and networking: Ternary supramolecular networks have been formed by coadsorption of dissimilar ternary building units at the liquid-solid interface. The structural characteristics of the networks undergo distinctive transformations as the building units change from binary to ternary components (see graphic).
A tetraphenylethylene based aggregation induced emission (AIE) probe, TPEPyE, bearing a positively charged pyridinium pendant was designed and synthesized. The positively charged TPEPyE can efficiently bind to the negatively charged lipopolysaccharide (LPS) through electrostatic interactions between the two oppositely charged species. As a result, upon the(More)
Schistosoma japonicum, a human blood fluke, causes a parasitic disease affecting millions of people in Asia. Thioredoxin-glutathione system of S. japonicum plays a critical role in maintaining the redox balance in parasite, which is a potential target for development of novel antischistosomal agents. Here we cloned the gene of S. japonicum thioredoxin(More)
Hemocyanin, a giant oxygen transport protein which is usually found in many arthropods and mollusks was isolated and purified from Oncomelania hupensis. In this study, we showed that Oncomelania hupensis hemocyanin (OhH) shared carbohydrate epitopes with different developmental stages of Schistosoma japonicum (Cercaria, Schistosomulum, Adult worm and Egg)(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) family members are usually different from each other in one-base variation. The high sequence homology poses a challenge for miRNA analysis with single-base selectivity. On the basis of G-quadruplex molecular beacons (G4MB) and duplex-specific nuclease (DSN), we developed a simple and highly selective amplification biosensor for miRNA(More)
