The expression and activity of type-1 NAD(P)H dehydrogenase (NDH-1) was compared between cells of Synechocystis PCC6803 grown in high (H-cells) and low (L-cells) CO(2) conditions. Western analysis indicated that L-cells contain higher amounts of the NDH-1 subunits, NdhH, NdhI and NdhK. An NADPH-specific subcomplex of NDH-1 showed higher NADPH-nitroblue(More)
Many efforts have been paid to the separation of an integrated NA(D)PH dehydrogenase (NDH) complex. Several hydrophilic subcomplexes of NDH have been purified from the cyanobacterium Synechocystis PCC6803. However, no hydrophobic NDH subcomplex has ever been separated from cyanobacteria yet. In this paper, two NDH subcomplexes were separated from n-dodecyl(More)
Arterial morphogenesis is an important and poorly understood process. In particular, the signaling events controlling arterial formation have not been established. We evaluated whether alterations in the balance between ERK1/2 and PI3K signaling pathways could stimulate arterial formation in the setting of defective arterial morphogenesis in mice and(More)
Keywords: Dempster–Shafer theory Fuzzy sets theory Supplier selection TOPSIS MCDM a b s t r a c t Supplier selection is a multi-criterion decision making problem under uncertain environments. Hence, it is reasonable to hand the problem in fuzzy sets theory (FST) and Dempster Shafer theory of evidence (DST). In this paper, a new MCDM methodology, using FST(More)
This paper presents a new framework for sensor reliability evaluation in classification problems based on evidence theory (or the Dempster-Shafer theory of belief functions). The evaluation is treated as a two-stage training process. First, the authors assess the static reliability from a training set by comparing the sensor classification readings with the(More)
In the development of E-Commerce, security has always been the core and key issue. In this paper, a new model is proposed to assist E-Commerce practitioners in the assessment of E-Commerce security. The proposed model is based on Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) and Dempster–Shafer (DS) theory of evidence. First, according to the characteristics of(More)
Dempster-Shafer evidence theory is an efficient tool in knowledge reasoning and decision-making under uncertain environments. Conflict management is an open issue in Dempster-Shafer evidence theory. In past decades, a large amount of research has been conducted on this issue. In this paper, we propose a new theory called generalized evidence theory (GET).(More)
A highly active NADPH dehydrogenase supercomplex, which is essential for cyclic electron transport around photosystem I (cyclic PSI) and respiration, was newly identified in cyanobacteria. Synechocystis sp. strain PCC 6803 cells were treated with exogenous glucose (Glc) or 3-(3,4-dichlorophenyl)-1,1-dimethylurea (DCMU); subsequently, active staining of(More)
To discover multifunctional agents for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease (AD), a series of scutellarein carbamate derivatives were designed and synthesized based on the multitarget-directed ligand strategy. Their acetylcholinesterase and butyrylcholinesterase inhibitory activities, antioxidant activities, metal-chelating properties and neuroprotective(More)
