The oriental fruit fly, Bactrocera dorsalis, is a devastating fruit fly pest in tropical and sub-tropical countries. Like other insects, this fly uses its chemosensory system to efficiently interact with its environment. However, our understanding of the molecular components comprising B. dorsalis chemosensory system is limited. Using next generation(More)
Using a panel data between 1999 and 2006 set of 605 households in Loess Plateau Region, China, and Differences in Differences (DD) method and Matching Method, we evaluate the Program's impact on the off-farm employment. Our empirical study results show that, SLCP has made a significant impact on the off-farm employment since it has been implemented for 7(More)
This study was conducted to examine the spatial variations in the exchange between near-bottom suspended and sea-bottom sediments in the Yangtze Estuary and adjacent region, as well as to explore the fate of suspended sediments in the study area. The relationship between the sand, silt, and clay contents of the sediments was analyzed by log-ratio analysis,(More)
MiR-16 is a tumour suppressor that is down-regulated in certain human cancers. However, little is known on its activity in other cell types. In this study, we examined the biological significance and underlying mechanisms of miR-16 on macrophage polarization and subsequent T-cell activation. Mouse peritoneal macrophages were isolated and induced to undergo(More)
Olfactory transduction is a process by which olfactory sensory neurons (OSNs) transform odor information into neuronal electrical signals. This process begins with the binding of odor molecules to receptor proteins on olfactory receptor neuron (ORN) dendrites. The major molecular components involved in olfaction include odorant-binding proteins (OBPs),(More)
The implementation of the Chinese New Rural Cooperative Medical Scheme (NRCMS) spread fast since a county pilot trial in 2003. The purpose of this survey is to guide policy-makers on how to improve the current national NRCMS policy. Cross-sectional survey of 1,978 farmers in 50 villages in Huxian Shaanxi Province on their attitudes towards the NRCMS(More)
