The goal of ShanghaiGrid is providing information services to the people. It aims at constructing a metropolitan-area information service infrastructure and establishing an open standard for widespread upper-layer applications from both communities and the government. A typical application named as Traffic Information Grid is discussed in detail.
Natural grassland productivity, which is based on an individual plant's aboveground biomass (AB) and its interaction with herbivores, can obviously affect terrestrial ecosystem services and the grassland's agricultural production. As plant traits have been linked to both AB and ecosystem success, they may provide a useful approach to understand the changes… (More)
Poor interpretability of current transportation systems has become an obstacle to further develop the intelligent transportation systems (ITS). Our design and implementation of intelligent transportation information service systems (ITIS) focuses on integrating heterogeneous data, transportation systems, and resources by using the grid technique. The ITIS… (More)
Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a unique breast cancer subtype with high heterogeneity and poor prognosis. Currently, the treatment effect of TNBC has reached a bottleneck, rendering new breakthroughs difficult. Cancer invasion is not an entirely cell-autonomous process, requiring the cells to transmigrate across the surrounding extracellular matrix… (More)
Sheepgrass [Leymus chinensis (Trin.) Tzvel] is a valuble forage plant highly significant to regional grassland productivity of Euro-Asia steppes. Although effects of environmental stress including drought have been studied, impact of nutrient deficiency in particular phosphate (Pi), one of the essential macronutrient, is not reported. Here, we investigated… (More)
BACKGROUND Topoisomerase 2 alpha (TOP2A) is a key enzyme in DNA replication and a target of various cytotoxic agents including anthracyclines. Previous studies evaluating the predictive and prognostic values of TOP2A in breast cancer are contradictory, likely secondary to the use of both different detection methods and different cutoff thresholds for… (More)
In order to provide personalized treatment to patients with breast cancer, an accurate, reliable and cost-efficient analytical technique is needed for drug screening and evaluation of tumor response to chemotherapy. Attenuated total reflectance Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (ATR-FTIR) was used as a tool to assess cancer cell response to… (More)
To study whether the sympathetic nerves coordinate with the parasympathetic nerves during micturition in the rat. We used antegrade neural tracing with biotinylated dextran amine (BDA) injected into the pontine micturition center (PMC) to label the terminals in the 1.6-S1 cord. Preganglionic parasympathetic neurons (PPNs) in the L6-S1 segment were labelled… (More)
