OBJECTIVE To investigate the features of regional cerebral metabolic rate of glucose (rCMRglc) in patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) by positron emission-tomography and its relationship with neuropsychological test. METHODS Positron emission tomography, mini-mental state examination and Wechsler memory scale were applied in 10 patients with MCI… (More)
BACKGROUND As a result of changing consumer preferences, cotton (Gossypium Hirsutum L.) from varieties with naturally colored fibers is becoming increasingly sought after in the textile industry. The molecular mechanisms leading to colored fiber development are still largely unknown, although it is expected that the color is derived from flavanoids. … (More)
The microstructure of Sn–8Zn–3Bi alloy was refined by increasing the solidification rate and the correlation between Zn-rich phase and the corrosion/oxidation behavior of the alloy was investigated. The Zn-rich phase transforms from coarse flakes to fine needles dispersed in the β-Sn matrix with the increase of the cooling rate. The transformation of… (More)
NAC (NAM, ATAF1/2, CUC2) transcription factors are plant-specific and have diverse functions in many plant developmental processes and responses to stress. In our previous study, we found that the expression of ATAF1, an Arabidopsis NAC gene, was obviously induced by high-salinity and abscisic acid (ABA). The overexpression of ATAF1 in Arabidopsis increased… (More)
A mini-hollow polyhedron Mn2O3is used as the anode material for lithium-ion batteries. Benefiting from the small interior cavity and intrinsic nanosize effect, a stable reconstructed hierarchical nanostructure is formed. It has excellent energy storage properties, exhibiting a capacity of 760 mAh g-1 at 2 A g-1 after 1000 cycles. This finding offers a new… (More)
Correction In the Methods section of our published article , the evolution of grain size and microstrain in the Mg and Cu is estimated using the single-line method of diffraction line-broadening analysis. However, a very important reference is omitted, and this method founder's publication should be cited here . Moreover, the experimental results… (More)
The ball milling technique has been successfully applied to the synthesis of various materials such as equilibrium intermetallic phases, amorphous compounds, nanocrystalline materials, or metastable crystalline phases. However, how the phase composition and nanoscale microstructure evolute during ball milling in various materials is still controversial due… (More)
Propose dynamic model for security margin of safety based on attribute theory for qualitative mapping, use description of boundary function and acceptance of preference constant to define the changing trend of margin of safety, verify the feasibility of trend analysis for margin of safety of security through test..
