Cold is a common stressor that is likely to occur in everyday occupational or leisure time activities. Although there is substantial literature on the effects of stress on memory from behavioral and pharmacologic perspectives, the effects of cold stress on learning and memory were little addressed. The aims of the present work were to investigate the(More)
Spatial clustering has been an active research area in Spatial Data Mining (SDM). Many methods on spatial clustering have been proposed in the literature, but few of them have taken into account constraints that may be present in the data or constraints on the clustering. In this paper, we discuss the problem of spatial clustering with obstacles constraints(More)
Phosphorylation of signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) on a single tyrosine residue in response to growth factors, cytokines, interferons, and oncogenes activates its dimerization, translocation to the nucleus, binding to the interferon γ (gamma)-activated sequence (GAS) DNA-binding site and activation of transcription of target(More)
Vimentin, a member of the intermediate filament protein family, is regulated both developmentally and tissue specifically. It is also a marker of the metastatic potential of many tumor cells. Pre viously, the human vimentin promoter has been shown to contain multiple elements for the binding of both positive- and negative-acting regulatory factors.(More)
Stress exerts complex effects on learning and memory; however, the understanding of the molecular mechanisms involved in stress effects on brain and behavior is rather limited. In this study, we investigated the regulation of the activation of MAPK (mitogen-activated protein kinase) cascades in the rat brain by GABAA receptor in a learning and memory task(More)

Unusual biogeographic patterns of closely related groups reflect events in the past, and molecular analyses can help to elucidate these events. While ample research on the origin of disjunct distributions of different organism groups in the Western Paleartic has been conducted, such studies are rare for Eastern Palearctic organisms. In this paper we present(More)
Gas emission of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDD/Fs) from 19 commercial municipal solid waste (MSW) incinerators in China are investigated. The emission concentrations of PCDD/Fs were 0.042-2.461 ng TEQ Nm(-3) with an average value of 0.423 ng TEQ Nm(-3). The emissions of PCDD/Fs from 16 MSW incinerators were below(More)
