Studies to assess the induction of CYP1A1 gene expression by tryptophan derived oxidation products which are suggested as endogenous ligands for the Ah receptor are described. For the two high affinity Ah receptor ligands produced from tryptophan, the chemical structure was recently identified as 6-formylindolo[3,2-b]carbazole (FICZ) and(More)
A functional cytochrome P4501A1 (CYP1A1) enzyme has been suggested to metabolize endogenous substrates and to autoregulate its own transcription in mouse hepatoma cells. In the present study, the regulation of CYP1A1 gene transcription by 6-formylindolo[3,2-b]carbazole (FICZ), a suggested endogenous ligand for the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR), has been(More)
Regional inequality is one of the major subjects of research on China, and is a major concern to the Chinese government. This article reviews the copious research on regional inequality in China. It is proposed that recent research has significantly improved our understanding of regional inequality but that problems still exist. It is also argued that(More)
Induction of cytochrome P-4501A1 (CYP1A1) activity by UV has been observed earlier in animal studies via a mechanism that has not yet been resolved. Our previous data have indicated that formylated indolocarbazoles which are formed by UV irradiation of tryptophan solutions are very potent Ah-receptor agonists. To evaluate the effect of UV light on(More)
This study investigates spatial dependence and mechanisms of regional development in Greater Beijing, China by employing spatial statistical techniques. We have detected positive, strengthening global spatial autocorrelation from 1978 to 2001, and found such strengthening is the result of newly formed/extended clusters in the area. The local analysis(More)
Concerns over the effects of globalisation and liberalisation have intensified the debates over the trajectories and underlying sources of regional inequality. This paper attempts to link macro studies of regional inequality to micro studies of local development and to expand the research on intraprovincial inequality in China to Guangdong Province. First,(More)
This study analyses regional development in provincial China through a case study of Jiangsu following the multi-scale and multi-mechanism framework. We have revealed a trend of increasing regional inequality and find it is mainly a result of the rapid development of Sunan (Southern Jiangsu), which also results in rising rural inter-county inequality.

Land use and land cover (LULC) models are essential for analyzing LULC change and predicting land use requirements and are valuable for guiding reasonable land use planning and management. However, each LULC model has its own advantages and constraints. In this paper, we explore the characteristics of LULC change and simulate future land use demand by(More)
