Four major families have been found so far to possess the calmodulin binding IQ motif/s in plants: the IQD, the myosin, the CAMTA and the CNGC family. We have systematically identified and characterized a novel IQ motif-containing protein family, IQM, in Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) using bioinformatics methods. IQM family contains six-member proteins(More)
A transition matrix growth and an ingrowth model were developed and applied to an uneven-aged mixed-species forest in the Changbai Mountains, northeastern of China. Results indicate that the constant-parameter transition probabilities for all species in the mixed uneven-aged forest could be classified into three groups based on the mean upgrowth(More)
An optimization model was developed to determine the optimal harvesting strategy needed for uneven-aged mixed-species stands in the Changbai Mountain region of northeast of China. The model takes into account four variables including residual basal area (RBA), the diameter of the largest tree, harvest cycle and a constant representing the ratio of the(More)
We measured the short-circuit current (Isc) in rat ileum mucosa to identify the effect of oxytocin (OT) on mucosal secretion in small intestine. We identified a COX-2-derived pulsatile PGE2 release triggered by OT in rat ileum mucosa. OT receptors (OTR) are expressed in intestine crypt epithelial cells. Notably, OT evoked a dynamic change of [Ca(2+)]i in(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE Huangqi decoction (HQD) is a well-known traditional Chinese herbal formulation, It is an effective treatment for consumptive disease and chronic liver diseases. It consists of Radix Astragali (Astragalus membranceus(Fisch.) Bge. Root, Huangqi) and Radix Glycyrrhizae (Glycyrrhiza uralensis Fisch., root and rhizome, Gancao).(More)
Enterobacter cancerogenus (formerly named Enterobacter taylorae) is a facultatively anaerobic Gram-negative bacterium, which is made up of a motile and rod-shaped cell and also possesses peritrichous flagella. This bacterium is usually considered a nosocomial opportunistic pathogen that can cause infections of the bones and joints associated with severe(More)
The new germanium compound of caffeic acid, (1), has been obtained to compare anti-tumor activities with 3-(2, 8, 9-trioxa-aza-1-germatricyclo[3. 3. 3. 0]undecane-1-yl)-hydroxycinnamic acids which have been researched previously. Compound was prepared which mainly used caffeic acid, germanium dioxide, sodium hypophosphite, triethanolamine as materials by(More)
The influence of nutrients on the growth of Ulva prolifera was studied in the SYS by field experiments. The wet weight of U. prolifera gradiently increased from 11.94% to 25.92% in proportion to contents of DIN supply, which indicated DIN content was essentially decisive for the output of U. prolifera blooms. Continuous nutrient supply could promote the(More)
A novel fluorescence probe 1 based on triphenylamine was synthesized and characterized by NMR, IR, high resolution mass spectrometry and elemental analysis. Its fluorescence was quenched when pH below 2. There was a linear relationship between the fluorescence intensity and pH value ranged from 2 to 7. And its fluorescence emission was reversibility in(More)
Regeneration myocardium by stem cell transplantartion has become a focus in research areas of cardial vascular disease. This review deals the role of traditional Chinese medicine in stem cell threapy of ischemic heart disease, such as mobilizing bone marrow stem cells, promoting stem cell proliferation, survival, induced them to differentiate into(More)
