Hepatitis B virus (HBV) covalently closed circular DNA (cccDNA), is a continuous double chain ring, while other DNA forms contain a gap on each chain at the position of direct repeat 1 sequence (DR1) and direct repeat 2 sequence (DR2), respectively. At present it is still difficult to detect with high sensitivity and specificity and quantify the HBV cccDNA(More)
With the rapid development of social economy, the demand of energy is increasing and the application of renewable energy has become a global trend. Nowadays, grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) technology has been well developed and widely applied in large PV power station, but its application on oceangoing ship is still at the stage of exploration. The latest(More)
This paper proposes a new novel local area interpolation algorithm for heart 3D recreation form cardiac ultrasound images. Compare with the traditional local area linear interpolation algorithm, we introduced a 3d ball Filter, which leads to the number of slice and the number of the interpolation candidate points are dynamic, the experiment results show(More)
The ship-rocking is a crucial factor which affects the accuracy of the ocean-based aerospace vehicle measurement. Here we have analysed groups of ship-rocking time series in horizontal and vertical directions utilizing a Hilbert based method from statistical physics. Based on these results we could predict certain amount of future values of the ship-rocking(More)
Odontoblasts are derived from dental papilla mesenchymal cells and have an important role in defense against bacterial infection, whereas autophagy can recycle long-lived proteins and damaged organelles to sustain cellular homeostasis. Thus, this study explores the role of autophagy in odontoblast differentiation with lipopolysaccharide (LPS) stimulation in(More)
Dentin sialophosphoprotein (Dspp) as a differentiation marker of odontoblasts is regulated by BMP-2. However, the intimate mechanism is still unknown. Transcription factors Dlx3 and Osx are essential for odontoblasts differentiation. We hypothesized that BMP-2 regulation of Dspp transcription was mediated by Dlx3 and/or Osx in odontoblasts. In the present(More)
At present, the information and control system (I&C) and operation support system (OSS) of the nuclear power plants (NPPs) are designed separately; their structures and functions are independent. So, the compatibility, availability and dependability of them are not desirable, and the comprehensive advantages of them are not to exert fully. In order to(More)
Lamiophlomis rotata is a renowned Chinese medicinal plant. Chalcone synthase (CHS) is important in flavonoid and isoflavonoid biosynthesis, catalysing the formation of naringenin chalcone in plants. A full-length cDNA encoding the CHS gene was cloned from L. rotata based on the highly conserved CHS gene sequences of Labiatae plants. A blast search showed(More)
This paper presents a new fast multi-direction three-dimensional (3D) recursive algorithm for 3D volume evaluation from cardiac ultrasound images. The algorithm include four steps, 1st, calibration of the volume of a voxel, 2nd, determination of six seed points from three orthogonal direction of the selected point in interested area, 3rd, multi-direction 3D(More)
Purpose Dental caries is a multifactorial infectious disease. In this study, we investigated whether single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene were associated with susceptibility to permanent tooth caries in Chinese adolescents. Method A total of 200 dental caries patients and 200 healthy controls aged 12 years were genotyped(More)
