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)
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)
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)
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)
First, the measuring principle, the weight function, and the magnetic field of the novel downhole inserted electromagnetic flowmeter (EMF) are described. Second, the basic design of the EMF is described. Third, the dynamic experiments of two EMFs in oil-water two-phase flow are carried out. The experimental errors are analyzed in detail. The experimental(More)
OBJECTIVE The relationship between anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) expression in malignant pleural effusion (MPE) samples detected only by Ventana immunohistochemistry (IHC) ALK (D5F3) and the efficacy of ALK-tyrosine kinase inhibitor therapy is uncertain. METHODS Ventana anti-ALK (D5F3) rabbit monoclonal primary antibody testing was performed on 313(More)
