In treatment of both ethyl acetate and toluenecontaminated air, selecting an adequate mixed microbial consortium as an inoculum is essential for effective toluene degradation with no serious inhibitory effect from ethyl acetate. Rhodococcus sp. B5 has the ability for uptake of both ethyl acetate and toluene but it encounters readily the problem of(More)
The rice disease bakanae, caused by Fusarium fujikuroi Nirenberg, has been present in Taiwan for over a century. To better understand the genetic diversity and structure of F. fujikuroi, a set of 16 polymorphic simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers were newly developed and used to analyze 637 F. fujikuroi isolates collected in 14 cities or counties around(More)
OBJECTIVE Epithelial ovarian cancer and relapsed type II endometrial cancer share common characteristics. Although the role of intraperitoneal (IP) chemotherapy in the treatment of epithelial ovarian cancer has been well-established, its role in the treatment of relapsed type II endometrial cancer remains to be elucidated. MATERIAL AND METHODS From(More)
To protect privacy while using LBS, we propose a pattern-based cloaking system that incorporate a trusted privacy preserving server to compute the cloak region for each sensitive patterns. To prevent adversaries culling out some patterns with some simple clues, we define a pattern-safe-cloak (PSC) region as a rectangle area that contains at least other l-1(More)
PURPOSE Both endoplasmic reticulum stress (ER stress) and autophagy are essential for the response of the protein quality control system to cellular stresses. This study investigated the influence of the duration of a high-fat diet (HFD) in mice on tissue-specific cellular responses, specifically with regard to the role of autophagy and ER stress. METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND Early fetal structure evaluation is crucial. Fetal abnormalities might indicate chromosomal anomalies or abnormal fetal growth. The aim of this study was to establish the appropriate reference range of maxillary and mandibular angles among the Taiwanese population at 11(+0)-13(+6) weeks of gestation in normal singleton pregnancy as reference(More)
BACKGROUND This study investigated the effect of yeast with bacteriocin (YB) on the homeostasis of lipid and glucose in diet-induced obese (DIO) mice. Seven-week-old C57BL/6 male mice were fed with a Western diet for 24 weeks to induce obesity. These DIO mice were randomly assigned to 2 groups: obese control (WS) and WYB [0.125 μg YB per g body weight(More)
