Secret sharing plays an important role in protecting important information from getting lost, destroyed, or into wrong hands. In 2000, Chien et al. proposed a (t, n) multi-secret sharing scheme. In 2004, Yang et al. proposed an alternative scheme based on Shamirpsilas secret sharing. In the next year, Pang et al. took another approach to share multiple(More)
We study the band structures of one-dimensional (1D) photonic crystals (PCs) in the subwavelength limit. A "spatial-averaged single-negative" (SASN) gap whose edges correspond to zero (volume) averaged permittivity (epsilon=0) and zero (volume) averaged permeability (micro=0) will appear when metamaterial is included in the PC. Unlike the Bragg gap, the(More)
Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is a recently discovered viral disease, characterized by fever, cough, acute fibrinous pneumonia and high infectivity. Specific pathogen-free (SPF) chickens were immunized with inactivated SARS coronavirus and their eggs were harvested at regular intervals. Yolk immunoglobulin (IgY) was extracted using the water(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies suggested that platelet-activating factor (PAF) plays an important role in ischemic diseases. Apoptosis has been implicated in myocardial infarction-related cell death. The present study was designed to determine whether PAF could induce apoptosis in cardiac myocytes and the underlying mechanisms by which PAF causes apoptosis. (More)
1. MicroRNAs (miRNAs), the small non-coding RNAs of approximately 22 nucleotides, are now recognized as a very large family present throughout the genomes of plants and metazoans. These small transcripts modulate protein expression by binding to complementary or partially complementary target protein-coding mRNAs and targeting them for degradation or(More)
As novel postnatal stem cells, gingiva-derived mesenchymal stem cells (GMSCs) have been considered as an ideal candidate cell resource for tissue engineering and cell-based therapies. GMSCs implanted into sites of injury have been confirmed to promote the injury repair. However, no studies have demonstrated whether systemically transplanted GMSCs can home(More)
OBJECTIVES To summarize neonatal screening for phenylketonuria (PKU) and congenital hypothyroidism (CH) in China, to further clarify incidence of the two kinds of diseases in newly-born babies, and to explore issues in neonatal screening and their solutions. METHODS Neonatal screening for PKU and CH was conducted by 39 neonatal screening centers all over(More)
