Insects use taste to evaluate food, hosts, and mates. Drosophila has many "orphan" taste neurons that express no known taste receptors. The Ionotropic Receptor (IR) superfamily is best known for its role in olfaction, but virtually nothing is known about a clade of ∼35 members, the IR20a clade. Here, a comprehensive analysis of this clade reveals expression(More)
a cloud computing prototype system, UbiCloud, is developed to enable the ubiquitous terminals access to powerful and reliable computing resources anywhere and anytime through building a virtual computing environment between the front-end ubiquitous terminals and the back-end servers (cloud). The experiment results show that the system performance is good(More)
UVA irradiation stimulates the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), which results in oxidative stress, cellular damage, and ultimately, cell death by interacting with other intracellular molecules. In the present study, we explored the protective role of Dihydromyricetin (DHM,1.25-10μM) against UVA-induced inflammation response and apoptosis in the(More)
An efficient and agile load-shedding model based on power flow tracing is proposed in this paper, which can effectively alleviate the high stress of power system in some emergency cases. First, calculate the distribution coefficient of bus to the overloaded branch by power flow tracing. Then, find out the loads and generators that have the most impact on(More)
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic and systemic autoimmune disease characterized by inflammatory cell infiltration and joint erosion. Human adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hASCs) have shown the capacity of suppressing effector T cell activation and inflammatory cytokine expression. We investigated whether hASCs play a therapeutic role in(More)
This article use adjustment dead zone, difference coefficient, lag time, stable time and contribution rate to construct the primary frequency index system and use WAMS data to analyze the generator primary frequency index calculation methods. At last, this paper uses the analytical hierarchy process (AHP) and entropy weight comprehensive evaluation methods(More)
Antrodia camphorata is a well-known Chinese medicinal mushroom that protects against diverse health-related conditions. Submerged fermentation of A. camphorata is an alternative choice for the effective production of bioactive metabolites, but the effects of nutrition and environment on mycelial morphology are largely unknown. In this study, we show that A.(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the volatile compounds of Antrodia camphorata in solid-state and submerged cultures. METHODS A headspace solid-phase microextraction (HS-SPME) coupled with gas chromatography-mass spectrometry(GC-MS) were used to evaluate the profile of the volatile compounds. RESULTS 49 volatile compounds were identified in A. camphorata mycelia in(More)
BACKGROUND Esophagectomy after pneumonectomy has been rarely reported, mainly due to the technical difficulty in performing this surgical approach. Conventional intubation to the contralateral respiratory passage is technically challenging, while the homolateral respiratory tract is absent, making oxygenation impossible. METHODS To overcome this problem,(More)
