—Multiple leaf area index (LAI) products have been generated from remote-sensing data. Among them, the Moderate-Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) LAI product (MOD15A2) is now routinely derived from data acquired by MODIS sensors onboard Terra and Aqua satellite platforms. However, the MODIS LAI product is not spatially and temporally continuous(More)
To further understand the effects of cyclin-dependent kinase 5 (CDK5) on the differentiation of neural stem cells, which were cultured and transfected with CDK5-EGFP recombinant overexpression vector (OV-CDK5 Group), successful transfection was confirmed by RT-PCR and Western blot. Our results showed that the CDK5 mRNA expression significantly increased in(More)
Leaf area index (LAI) is an important vegetation biophysical variable, and has been widely applied to estimation of crop yield, evapotranspiration, and net photosynthesis. Currently, there are many methods to estimate LAI from remote sensing data through the statistical relationship between LAI and spectral vegetation indices, physical model inversion or(More)
Microglial activation has been considered as a crucial process in the pathogenesis of neuroinflammation and psychiatric disorders. Several antipsychotic drugs (APDs) have been shown to display inhibitory effects on microglial activation in vitro, possibly through the suppression of elevated intracellular calcium (Ca(2+)) concentration. However, the exact(More)
Aspirin, one of the most commonly used anti-inflammatory drugs, has been recently reported to display multiple effects in the central nervous system (CNS), including neuroprotection and upregulation of ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF) expression in astrocytes. Although it was most recently reported that aspirin could promote the proliferation and(More)
Lead (Pb) poisoning has always been a serious health concern, as it permanently damages the central nervous system. Chronic Pb accumulation in the human body disturbs oligodendrocytes (OLs) differentiation, resulting in dysmyelination, but the molecular mechanism remains unknown. In this study, Pb at 1 μM inhibits OLs precursor cells (OPCs) differentiation(More)
Leaf area index (LAI) is an important parameter in canopy interception, evapotranspiration, and net photosynthesis. Satellite remote sensing enables derivation of LAI globally at desired spatial resolution and temporal frequency. And several LAI products have been produced from data acquired by Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS),(More)
In this study, we proposed three optimized models for calculating the total volume of landslides triggered by the 2008 Wenchuan, China Mw 7.9 earthquake. First, we calculated the volume of each deposit of 1,415 landslides triggered by the quake based on pre- and post-quake DEMs in 20 m resolution. The samples were used to fit the conventional landslide(More)
