Carbon nanotubes are promising materials for various applications. In recent years, progress in manufacturing and functionalizing carbon nanotubes has been made to achieve the control of bulk and surface properties including the wettability, acid-base properties, adsorption, electric conductivity and capacitance. In order to gain the optimal benefit of(More)
This study investigated the effects of short-term food restriction or supplementation on folliculogenesis and plasma and intrafollicular metabolite and hormone concentrations. Ewes were randomly assigned to three groups: the control group received a maintenance diet (M) while the supplemented group and restricted group received 1.5×M and 0.5×M respectively(More)
A sketch is a probabilistic data structure that is used to record frequencies of items in a multi-set. Sketches have been applied in a variety of fields, such as data stream processing, natural language processing, distributed data sets etc. In this paper, we propose a new sketch, called Slim-Fat (SF) sketch, which has a much smaller memory footprint for(More)
The aim of this study was to construct a mammary gland-specific expressional vector pBC1-hLF-Neo for Human Lactoferrin (hLF) gene and then investigate its expression in the mammary gland epithelium cells. The constructed vector contained the 6.2 kb long 5' flank regulation region including promoter, other elements and the 7.1 kb long 3' flank regulation(More)
Brønsted acidic ionic liquids (BAILs) can play a dual role, as a solvent and as a catalyst, in many reactions. However, molecular details of the catalytic mechanism are poorly understood. We present here a density functional theory (DFT) study for the catalytic mechanism of the transesterification of methyl ester (ME) with trimethylolpropane (TMP), in the(More)
Sluice gate is the key factor of accuracy in a canal simulation system. Due to the coupled relationship between the Saint-Venant equations and the discharge of gates, the gate flow rate at a time is calculated from the sampling of water depth gathered last step. The article analyzed this approximation of water depth data based on a complete canal simulation(More)
Basilar fractures are one of the consequences of craniocerebral injury, which is serious enough to cause death. Legal examiners often pay attention to basilar fractures at autopsy and analyze the relationship between them and death. It is noteworthy whether the fracture is premortem or postmortem. Here, we describe a rarely reported case of basilar fracture(More)
Myostatin functions as a negative regulator of skeletal muscle growth by suppressing proliferation and differentiation of myoblasts. Dysfunction of the myostatin gene, either due to natural mutation or genetic manipulations such as knockout or knockdown, has been reported to increase muscle mass in mammalian species. RNA interference (RNAi) mediated by(More)
China is a country with disaster of severe ice conditions and ice jam. As more and more large-scale water transfer projects such as the South-to-North Water Transfer Project, research of formation mechanism of ice jam and the numerical model of water transfer in winter is urgent. Reasonable and feasible water transfer mode must be put forward to improve the(More)
