The transcription of S-PM2 phage following infection of Synechococcus sp. WH7803, a marine cyanobacterium, was analysed by quantitative real-time PCR. Unlike the distantly related coliphage T4, there were only two (early and late) instead of three (early, middle and late) classes of transcripts during the developmental cycle of the phage. This difference is(More)
Surface soil samples from agricultural soil of Shanghai were collected and analyzed for 24 organochlorine pesticides (OCPs). The concentrations were in the ranges of nd-10.38 n gg(-1) for HCHs (sum of alpha-, beta-, gamma- and delta-HCH), 0.77-247.45 ng g(-1) for DDTs (sum of p,p'-DDT, p,p'-DDD, p,p'-DDE, and o,p'-DDT), 0.84-10.08 ng g(-1) for CHLs (sum of(More)
A novel random-gradient-based algorithm is developed for online tracking the minor component (MC) associated with the smallest eigenvalue of the autocorrelation matrix of the input vector sequence. The five available learning algorithms for tracking one MC are extended to those for tracking multiple MCs or the minor subspace (MS). In order to overcome the(More)
Levels, composition profiles and sources of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were analyzed in 55 surface soil samples collected from Shanghai urban districts. The total concentrations of 22 PAHs (SigmaPAHs) ranged from 442 to 19,700 microgkg(-1), with a mean of 3780 microgkg(-1), and the sum of 16 priority PAHs (Sigma16PAHs) varied from 347 to 17,900(More)
A better understanding of the underlying mechanisms of angiogenesis and vascular permeability is necessary for the development of therapeutic strategies for ischemic injury. The purpose of this study was to examine the spatial and temporal expression of Src and Src-suppressed C kinase substrate (SSeCKS) in brain after middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO)(More)
By binding to nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs), nicotine induces the proliferation and apoptosis of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Previous studies have indicated that α5-nAChR is highly associated with lung cancer risk and nicotine dependence. However, the mechanisms through which α5-nAChRs may influence lung carcinogenesis are far from(More)
A high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method was developed for the first time to quantify simultaneously the six major active ingredients in Acanthopanax senticosus (Rupr. et Maxim.) Harms, namely protocatechuic acid, syringin, chlorogenic acid, caffeic acid, liriodendrin and isofraxidin. The analysis was performed by a reverse phase gradient(More)
Sambucus chinensis L. is a native perennial herb distributed throughout China. In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), this herb is known as Lu-Ying. Ursolic acid is the major effective constituent of Lu-Ying. A rapid, sensitive, and accurate liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) method for the determination of ursolic acid in rat plasma was(More)
Hypertrophied myocardium is associated with reductions in the transient outward K(+) current (Ito) and expression of pore-forming Kv4.2/4.3 and auxiliary KChIP2 subunits. Here we show that KChIP2 mRNA and protein levels are dramatically decreased to 10% to 30% of control levels in the left ventricle of aorta-constricted rats in vivo and phenylephrine(More)
