The clinical exploration of urinary metabonomic analysis on discriminating between the top-two-incidence urological cancers, bladder and kidney cancers (BC and KC), is still virgin land. In this study, we discovered and evaluated the clinical utility of holistic metabonomic profiling and current single biomarker methods, and ultimately suggested a potential(More)
A LC-MS based method, which utilizes both reversed-performance (RP) chromatography and hydrophilic interaction chromatography (HILIC) separations, has been carried out in conjunction with multivariate data analysis to discriminate the global serum profiles of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) patients and healthy controls. The HILIC was found necessary for a(More)
Biological structures are attractive as templates to form nanoscale architectures for electronics because of their dimensions and the ability to interact with inorganic materials. In this study, we report the fabrication and electrical properties of microtubule (MT)-templated Au nanowires, and methods for assembling Au nanowire arrays based on these(More)
The incommensurate modulation evident in the diffraction pattern of the superconductor Bi(2)Sr3-xCa(x)Cu(2)O8+y consists of almost sinusoidally varying displacements of up to 0.4A of the Bi and Sr atoms in the a-and c-directions of the unit cell, and of up to 0.3 A of the Cu atoms in the c direction only. Thus, a newly discovered feature of the(More)
The purpose of this study was to use metabonomic profiling to identify a potential specific biomarker pattern in urine as a noninvasive bladder cancer (BC) detection strategy. A liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry based method, which utilized both reversed phase liquid chromatography and hydrophilic interaction chromatography separations, was performed,(More)
Bladder cancer (BC) and kidney cancer (KC) are the first two commonly occurring genitourinary cancers in China. In this study, a comprehensive LC-MS-based method, which utilizes both reversed phase liquid chromatography (RPLC) and hydrophilic interaction chromatography (HILIC) separations, has been carried out in conjunction with multivariate data analysis(More)
In this paper, we bring in a basic technique, eigen features, which has been proved effectively in the field of human face perception. Its spirit is to represent pattern categories with essence of data by getting rid of relativity among data. We first describe the principle of eigen features and the measure of realization. Then, we introduce our three human(More)
A diketopyrrolopyrrole-based conjugated polymer, PDPP-4FTVT, which exhibits ambipolar transport behavior in air with hole and electron mobilities up to 3.40 and 5.86 cm(2) V(-1) s(-1), respectively, is synthesized via direct arylation polycondensation. Incorporation of F-atoms in β-positions of thiophene rings dramatically improves the efficiency of direct(More)
In this communication, we report a series of polymer semiconductors based on a novel electron-deficient building block, double B←N bridged bipyridine (BNBP). These polymers show ambipolar or unipolar n-channel charge-transporting characteristics with electron mobilities in the range of 0.02-0.32 cm2 V-1 s-1 in organic thin film transistors.
