The fatty acid and amino acid compositions of different grades of steamed Chinese mitten crab were analyzed. In total, 37 types of fatty acid were identified and quantified, with monounsaturated fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) constituting approximately 70 % of all fatty acids. Oleic acid, palmitic acid, and linoleic acid were dominant(More)
A group of growth factors have been shown to play important roles in amelioration of the malfunction of the neurodegenerative diseases. However, the proteins or polypeptides passing across the blood-brain barrier (BBB) to access the brain parenchyma are relatively few so that it hinders the therapies in clinic. Here a genetically reconstructed fusion(More)
k-Plane clustering (kPC) and k-proximal plane clustering (kPPC) cluster data points to the center plane, instead of clustering data points to cluster center in k-means. However, the cluster center plane constructed by kPC and kPPC is infinitely extending, which will affect the clustering performance. In this paper, we propose a local k-proximal plane(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore whether a tissue-engineered construct composed of autogenous endothelial cells, osteoblasts and a new bioresorbable nano-hydroxyapatite/recombinant human-like collagen/polylactic acid (nHA/RHLC/PLA) would enhance bone regeneration and repair femoral head defects in canine models. METHODS The bone marrow stem cells (BMSCs) were(More)
A possible correlation between liver cancer pain and the hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF)-1 and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression levels was examined. From January, 2015 to January, 2016, 30 patients suffering from liver cancer with pain, 30 patients with liver cancer without pain and 30 hepatitis patients with pain were enrolled in the(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in young rats, and to investigate the metabolic characteristics of these rats. METHODS Fifteen male and fifteen female SD rats of 3 weeks old were randomly divided into three groups, normal group (N), 20% high fat group (HF1) and 30% high fat group (HF2). All the rats were fed under Specific(More)
Instead of clustering data points to cluster center points in k-means, k-plane clustering (kPC) clusters data points to the center planes. However, kPC only concerns on within-cluster data points. In this paper, we propose a novel plane-based clustering, called k-proximal plane clustering (kPPC). In kPPC, each center plane is not only close to the objective(More)
The objective of this PhD research project is to examine the influence of EA’s affective expressions on students’ learning motivation, enjoyment and learning efficacy in an IL game. This project combines the concepts of digital game-based learning and affective embodied agents to information literacy education, by using Kuhlthau’s Information Search Process(More)
BACKGROUND Vulnerable plaques play an important role in the onset of sudden cardiac events and strokes. How to stabilize vulnerable plaques is still a challenge to medical science. Alprostadil is a biologically active substance with strong activity on vessel. Our study assessed the stabilizing effects of an alprostadil liposome microsphere preparation(More)
