We introduce the use of Ingenuity Pathway Analysis to analyzing global metabonomics in order to characterize phenotypically biochemical perturbations and the potential mechanisms of the gentamicin-induced toxicity in multiple organs. A single dose of gentamicin was administered to Sprague Dawley rats (200 mg/kg, n = 6) and urine samples were collected at(More)
Soil salinity can be a limiting factor for productivity in agriculture and forestry. In order to fully utilize saline lands productively in plantation forestry for pulp production, the genetic modification of tree species for salt-tolerance may be required. The AhDREB1 gene, a DREB-like transcription factor gene, was transferred into Populus tomentosa by(More)
Acupuncture has a history of over 3000 years and is a traditional Chinese medical therapy that uses hair-thin metal needles to puncture the skin at specific points on the body to promote wellbeing, while its molecular mechanism and ideal biological pathways are still not clear. High-throughput metabolomics is the global assessment of endogenous metabolites(More)
Improving saline resistance may be useful for reducing environmental susceptibility and improving yields in poplar plantations. However, the instability of genetically engineered traits and gene transfer reduce their usefulness and commercial value. To investigate whether the foreign gene is still present in the genome of receptor plants after seven years(More)
As the affiliation network of churches may potentially benefit public health, the impact of partic-ipants' preferences on the affiliation network bears further study. This paper attempts to use agent-based modeling techniques associated with geographic information to study the affiliation network between churches and participants. Using churches in ZIP Code(More)
