MicroRNAs (miRNAs) play critical roles in the processes of plant growth and development, but little is known of their functions during dehydration stress in wheat. Moreover, the mechanisms by which miRNAs confer different levels of dehydration stress tolerance in different wheat genotypes are unclear. We examined miRNA expressions in two different wheat(More)
In this study, a needle-trap device with fibers coated with a molecularly imprinted polymer was developed for separation. A number of heat-resistant Zylon filaments were longitudinally packed into a glass capillary, followed by coating with a molecularly imprinted polymer. Then, the molecularly imprinted polymer coating was copolymerized and anchored onto(More)
BACKGROUND Rectal indometacin decreases the occurrence of pancreatitis after endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). However, the population most at risk and the optimal timing of administration require further investigation. We aimed to assess whether pre-procedural administration of rectal indometacin in all patients is more effective than(More)
Transparent electrodes are essential components for optoelectronic devices, such as touch panels, organic light-emitting diodes, and solar cells. Indium tin oxide (ITO) is widely used as transparent electrode in optoelectronic devices. ITO has high transparency and low resistance but contains expensive rare elements, and ITO-based devices have poor(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The success of a colonoscopy is highly dependent on the quality of bowel preparation (BP). Many patients have poor BP due to non-compliance with regular instructions. Reports concerning the effects of enhanced instructions on BP quality are inconsistent. The aim of this meta-analysis was to compare BP quality between patients receiving(More)
Transparent electrodes with a dielectric-metal-dielectric (DMD) structure can be implemented in a simple manufacturing process and have good optical and electrical properties. In this study, nickel oxide (NiO) is introduced into the DMD structure as a more appropriate dielectric material that has a high conduction band for electron blocking and a low(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Bowel preparation is closely linked to the quality of colonoscopy. We investigated whether delivery of instructions via a social media app increases the quality of colonoscopy by improving adequacy of bowel preparation. METHODS We performed a prospective study at 3 endoscopic centers in China of 770 colonoscopy outpatients (18-80 years(More)
Due to data and methodology constraints, there is a lack of good quality-controlled residential price indices publicly available in China. New home sales account for quite a large share of total home sales (87% in 2010) in Chinese cities, As a result, the standard repeat sales approach cannot be employed, as a new housing unit only appears once on the(More)
TiO(2) nanotubes, novel nanomaterials synthesized from hydrothermal treatment, were investigated for being used as a new solid-phase extraction adsorbent with o,p'-DDT, [1,1,1-trichloro-2-(o-chlorophenyl)-2-(p-chlorophenyl)ethane, p,p'-DDT, [1,1,1-trichloro-2,2-bis(4-chlorophenyl)ethane] and its principle metabolites p,p'-DDD,(More)
