At 17+4 week, non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) results of a 24-years-old mother showed high risk of monosomy X (45, X). Abnormally shaped head and cardiac defects were observed in prenatal ultrasound scan at 19+3 week. Amniocentesis conducted at 19+3 week identified karyotype 47, XX, +18, which suggested that the NIPT failed to detect trisomy 18 (T18)(More)
This study assessed the effect of the central benzodiazepine receptor antagonist, 8-fluoro-5,6-dihydro-5-methyl-6-oxo-4H-imidazo[1,5-a][1,4]benzodiazepine-3-carboxylic acid ethyl ester (flumazenil), on morphine-induced analgesia, locomotor effects, and development of tolerance in rats. The thermally evoked pain (tail flick) response was determined after(More)
The effect of the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonists dextromethorphan (DEX), ketamine (KET), and MK-801 on morphine (MOR)-induced antinociception has been investigated in male and female rats. DEX (7.5, 15, and 30 mg/kg), KET (0.75, 1.5, and 3 mg/kg), and MK-801 (0.075, 0.15, and 0.3 mg/kg) dose-dependently enhanced MOR-induced (3 mg/kg)(More)
Male and female rats were exposed for 3 weeks to diazepam (DZ)-filled or empty capsules (CTR) prior to the daily administration of morphine (MOR, 5 mg/kg, IP) for 5 days. Thereafter, capsules were removed and 48 h later MOR was injected for the next 5 days. The tail-flick latency (TFL) was measured prior to and 15, 30, and 60 min after MOR assessed(More)
—Forced expression of transcription factors epige-netically reprograms somatic cells harvested from routine skin biopsies into induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). Human iPSCs are key resources for drug discovery, regenerative medicine and tissue engineering. Here we developed a materials approach to explore how culture substrates could impact(More)
Plant biodiversity is often correlated with ecosystem functioning in terrestrial ecosystems. However, we know little about the relative and combined effects of above- and belowground biodiversity on multiple ecosystem functions (for example, ecosystem multifunctionality, EMF) or how climate might mediate those relationships. Here we tease apart the effects(More)
—The absolute radiometric calibration of remote sensing sensors is crucial to the accurate retrieval of biogeophysical parameters through remote sensing. The radiometric calibration uncertainty is the index that describes the reliability of a calibration result and is usually empirically determined by assuming that all of the factors involved are(More)
PURPOSE To determine the prevalence and associations of myopia in schoolchildren in provincial Western China. METHODS In the school-based observational cross-sectional Gobi Desert Children Eye Study, cylcoplegic refractometry as part of a comprehensive ophthalmic examination was performed in all schools in the oasis region of Ejina. Out of 1911 eligible(More)
The wide-view multispectral imager (WVMI) is the main instrument carried on an unmanned vehicle in the Unmanned Vehicle Payloads Comprehensive Calibration Campaign, which focuses on the calibration and validation of various remote-sensing sensors, including multispectral and hyperspectral sensors. In order to calibrate the WVMI, we designed and deployed a(More)
Complex chromosome rearrangements (CCRs), which are rather rare in the whole population, may be associated with aberrant phenotypes. Next-generation sequencing (NGS) and conventional techniques, could be used to reveal specific CCRs for better genetic counseling. We report the CCRs of a girl and her mother, which were identified using a combination of NGS(More)
