BACKGROUND Yersinia pestis is the causative agent of plague, which is transmitted primarily between fleas and mammals and is spread to humans through the bite of an infected flea or contact with afflicted animals. Hfq is proposed to be a global post-transcriptional regulator that acts by mediating interactions between many regulatory small RNAs (sRNAs) and(More)
Protocadherin 11 X-linked (Pcdh11x) protein is a member of the cadherin superfamily with established roles in cell adhesion. Previous studies have shown the molecular biology and possible relevance of Pcdh11x with neurological disease in humans. However, little is known about the neurophysiological function of Pcdh11x in neural development. Here, we(More)
Triptolide (TPL), a traditional Chinese medicine extract, possesses anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor properties. Though some research results have implicated that Triptolide (TPL) can be utilized in the treatment of leukemia, it remains controversial about the mechanism of TPL-induced leukemic T-lymphocytes apoptosis. In this study, combining Raman(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare the metabolic properties of maintenance hemodialysis patients treated with glucose-containing and glucose-free dialysate using metabonomics. Pre- and post-dialysis serum samples from group G (-) using glucose-free dialysate, and group G (+) using glucose-added dialysate (glucose levels were 5.5 mmol/L) were analyzed(More)
Motivated by the revealing topological structures of continuous-variable graph state (CVGS), we investigate the design of quantum voting scheme, which has serious advantages over the conventional ones in terms of efficiency and graphicness. Three phases are included, i.e., the preparing phase, the voting phase and the counting phase, together with three(More)
Traditional distribution network fault location methods often cannot be effectively applied for the structure of the branch in complex distribution network. A new accurate fault location for the single-phaseground fault in complex distribution network with structure of the branch based on Hilbert-Huang transform was proposed in this paper. First, the(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the immunological responses, such as phenoloxidase (PO), antibacterial, and bacteriolytic activities, and metabolic variables, such as oxyhemocyanin, lactate, and glucose levels, of Litopenaeus vannamei exposed to ambient ammonia-N at 0, 2.5, 5, 7.5, and 10 mg/L for 0, 3, 6, 12, 24, and 48 h, and determine the(More)
For better solving the problem of multi-terminal fault location in the distribution network, this paper proposes a new fault location method based on Strong Tracking Filter (STF) and Parameter Adaptive Differential Evolution Algorithm (PADEA), which can be applied to asynchronous sampling systems. STF is adopted for real-time fundamental wave amplitudes’(More)
Browning is one of the adverse factors that affects quality and shelf life of fresh-cut potatoes. The present paper investigates the effects and mechanism of a curing treatment to control the browning of fresh-cut potatoes. Potatoes were placed in curing conditions (16 ± 1 °C, 90 % RH) for 10 days immediately after harvest. The purpose of curing is to(More)
