Aggression in socially monogamous mandarin vole (Microtus mandarinus) was observed after castration. Levels of serum sex hormones and their central receptors were also measured using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and immunohistochemistry methods. The data indicate that adult males showed higher levels of aggression after castration. However, castration(More)
Fluorescent proteins serve as important biomarkers for visualizing both subcellular organelles in living cells and structural and functional details in large-volume tissues or organs. However, current techniques for plastic embedding are limited in their ability to preserve fluorescence while remaining suitable for micro-optical sectioning tomography of(More)
Previous studies demonstrate that leptin has an osteogenic differentiation effect on bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). However, the effect of adenovirus-mediated leptin on MSCs differentiation has not been reported. To explore the mechanism, we constructed a recombinant adenoviral vector Ad-leptin and transfected propagated MSCs in vitro. The(More)
A PowerPC-centred 110 VAC/2.5 kW full-bridge isolated battery charger was developed for the plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV). Genetic algorithm was adopted to optimise the system key parameters. Phase-shift-based operation modes were analysed in detail. The system-level safe operational area and other practical design considerations were discussed in(More)
It is important to correctly and efficiently predict the interaction of substrate-enzyme and to predict their product in metabolic pathway. In this work, a novel approach was introduced to encode substrate/product and enzyme molecules with molecular descriptors and physicochemical properties, respectively. Based on this encoding method, KNN was adopted to(More)
This paper addresses the real-time demand of radix-4 FFT processor in modern digital signal processing domain. Full parallel and pipelined architecture can be a good solution while too much hardware is consumed. Therefore a useful optimization method of complex multiplier and twiddle factor which has been successfully used to implement the FFT algorithms(More)
We studied by light microscopy the histological development of the olfactory and vomeronasal organ in tadpoles of the Chinese forest frog, Rana chensinensis, from postembryonic periods to the end of metamorphosis. Unlike Bufo americanus, the olfactory epithelium in larval R. chensinensis is not divided into dorsal and ventral branches in the rostral and(More)
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) accounts for almost three quarters of dementia patients and interferes people’s normal life. Great progress has been made recently in the study of Acetylcholinesterase (AChE), known as one of AD’s biomarkers. In this study, acetylcholinesterase inhibitors (AChEI) were collected to build a two-dimensional structure–activity(More)
Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common malignant brain tumor. This study aimed to identify the hub genes and regulatory factors of GBM subgroups by RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) data analysis, in order to explore the possible mechanisms responsbile for the progression of GBM. The dataset RNASeqV2 was downloaded by TCGA-Assembler, containing 169 GBM and(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate associations between cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors and the occurrence of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in patients with lung cancer that might help estimate an individual's risk for VTE. A total of 632 unselected patients with newly diagnosed lung cancer were investigated for VTE within the three months prior(More)
