R2R3-MYB, bHLH, and WD40 proteins have been shown to control multiple enzymatic steps in the biosynthetic pathway responsible for the production of flavonoids, important secondary metabolites in Camellia sinensis. Few related transcription factor genes have been documented. The presence of R2R3-MYB, bHLH, and WD40 were statistically and bioinformatically(More)
Tea (Camellia sinensis) is a commercially important crop that contains valuable secondary metabolites. To understand the molecular regulation of secondary metabolism in tea, we selected and analyzed two cell lines of tea callus (Yunjing63Y and Yunjing63X) that showed different morphological characteristics and catechin contents. Yunjing63Y callus was yellow(More)
INTRODUCTION Substantial evidence suggests that concerns about postcessation weight gain interfere with cessation efforts. However, it is unclear to what extent weight pretreatment affects smoking-related weight concerns. Given that the prevalence of overweight and obesity among callers to tobacco quitlines mirrors that of the population at large, and that(More)
Based on the model predictive control (MPC) and particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm, an online three-dimension route planning algorithm is proposed in this paper for UAV under the partially known task environment with appearing threats. By using the preplanning-online route tracking pattern, a reference route is planned in advance according to the(More)
Despite recent advances in antibiotic therapy and intensive care, sepsis remains widespread problems in critically ill patients. The high mortality of sepsis is in part mediated by bacterial endotoxin, which stimulates macrophages/monocytes to sequentially release early (e.g., TNF, IL-1, and IFN-gamma) and late (e.g., HMGB1) pro-inflammatory cytokines. In(More)
BACKGROUND The use and effectiveness of tobacco quitlines by weight is still unknown. PURPOSE This study aims to determine if baseline weight is associated with treatment engagement, cessation, or weight gain following quitline treatment. METHODS Quitline participants (n = 595) were surveyed at baseline, 3 and 6 months. RESULTS Baseline weight was not(More)
Due to the constraints on available resources, a node in wireless sensor networks is likely to be selfish and refuse to declare itself as a cluster head. Based on game theory, this paper models the problem and discusses the condition of Nash Equilibrium. Simulation results show that nodes have tendency to cooperate due to the reduction in delay and loss(More)
Clustering has long been regarded as an efficient technique for data collection in wireless sensor networks. The approach divides network into clusters and makes cluster heads (CHs) responsible for data aggregation. However, due to the constraints on available resources, a sensor node is likely to be selfish and refuse to declare itself as a cluster head.(More)
This article discusses full-text source lists used by full-text finding tools, such as serials management systems, OpenURL link resolvers, and imported e-journal MARC records. Although the vendors of full-text finding tools claim that they frequently update their full-text source lists with changes in full-text titles, ISSNs, coverage dates, and other(More)
