In recent years, energy crisis and environmental issues such as greenhouse effect, global warming, etc. has roused peoples' concern. Biodiesel, as renewable energy, has attracted much attention to deal with such problems. This work studied the lipid production by Rhodotorula glutinis with undetoxified corncob hydrolysate. The results indicated that R.(More)
Many studies have focused on the relationships of particulate matter between indoor, outdoor and personal exposure; however, considerable uncertainties remain regarding the portion of indoor particles and personal exposure of ambient origin. As part of the Particle Exposure Assessment for Community Elderly (PEACE) study in Tianjin, China, we have further(More)
In this work, chemiluminescence (CL) reagent and catalyst metal ion complexes bifunctionalized gold nanoparticles (BF-AuNPs) with high CL efficiency were synthesized via an improved synthesis strategy. Biothiols, such as cysteine (Cys), cysteinyl-glycine (Cys-Gly), homocysteine (Hcy), and glutathione (GSH), instead of(More)
Magnetic particles with suitable surface modification are capable of binding proteins selectively, and magnetic separations have advantages of rapidity, convenience, and high selectivity. In this paper, new magnetic nanoparticles modified with imidazolium ionic liquid (Fe3O4 @SiO2 @ILs) were successfully fabricated. N-Methylimidazolium was immobilized onto(More)
Bolting is an important agronomic trait in Brassica rapa crops due to its effect on yield and quality. Bolting is a complicated trait regulated by multiple genes that is highly influenced by the environment. Defining the chromosomal region(s) involved and clarifying the genetic interactions is important for improving the effectiveness of marker-assisted(More)
Chromatin modification is pivotal to the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT), which confers potent metastatic potential to cancer cells. Here, we report a role for the chromatin remodeling factor lymphoid-specific helicase (LSH) in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), a prevalent cancer in China. LSH expression was increased in NPC, where it was controlled(More)
The sweetpotato whitefly Bemisia tabaci is a highly destructive agricultural and ornamental crop pest. It damages host plants through both phloem feeding and vectoring plant pathogens. Introductions of B. tabaci are difficult to quarantine and eradicate because of its high reproductive rates, broad host plant range, and insecticide resistance. A total of(More)
A new air exchange rate (AER) monitoring method using continuous CO2 sensors was developed and validated through both laboratory experiments and field studies. Controlled laboratory simulation tests were conducted in a 1-m3 environmental chamber at different AERs (0.1-10.0 hr(-1)). AERs were determined using the decay method based on box model assumptions.(More)
In this work, a new method has been proposed to simultaneously determine the trace amount of malachite green and crystal violet from aqueous solution by spectrophotometry after cloud point extraction (CPE) using partial least squares regression. The optimal extraction and operating conditions, such as pH, reagents concentration and effect of time and(More)
The signaling pathway-based stratification in chromatin modification could predict clinical outcome more reliably than morphology-alone-based classification schemes in gliomas. Here we reported a role of the chromatin-remodeling factor lymphoid-specific helicase (LSH) in gliomas. Among astrocytomas of grade I to III and glioblastoma of grade IV, LSH were(More)
