A novel fibrinolytic enzyme from Fusarium sp. CPCC 480097, named Fu-P, was purified to electrophoretic homogeneity using ammonium sulfate precipitation and ion exchange and gel filtration chromatography. Fu-P, a single protein had a molecular weight of 28 kDa, which was determined by SDS-PAGE and gel filtration chromatography. The isoelectric point of Fu-P(More)
Emerging evidence indicates that microRNAs (miRNAs) have important roles in regulating osteogenic differentiation and bone formation. Thus far, no study has established the pathophysiological role for miRNAs identified in human osteoporotic bone specimens. Here we found that elevated miR-214 levels correlated with a lower degree of bone formation in bone(More)
UNLABELLED BACKGROUND "Dragon's Blood" (DB) has long been used as an ethnomedicine in China to invigorate blood circulation for the treatment of traumatic injuries, blood stasis and pain. To comprehensively assess the quality of DB medicine, a precise and accurate method that can rapidly separate, characterize and quantify multiple active components of(More)
We use a mathematical model of the calyx of Held to explore information transmission at this giant glutamatergic synapse. The significant depression of the postsynaptic response to repeated stimulation in vitro is a result of various activity-dependent processes in multiple timescales, which can be reproduced by multiexponential functions in this model.(More)
Based on the model following control method, a sliding mode controller is designed for the flight control system with wind disturbances. With this controller, the controlled plant can track the reference model outputs precisely. It is shown that this scheme provides better performance for the flight control system with uncertain disturbances. In this paper,(More)
To identify new genetic risk factors for cervical cancer, we conducted a genome-wide association study in the Han Chinese population. The initial discovery set included 1,364 individuals with cervical cancer (cases) and 3,028 female controls, and we selected a 'stringently matched samples' subset (829 cases and 990 controls) from the discovery set on the(More)
BACKGROUND AIMS The characteristics, such as morphologic and phenotypic characteristics and neural transdifferentiation ability, of mesenchymal stromal cells (MSC) derived from different origins have yet to be reported for cases isolated from the same individual. METHODS The proliferation capacity, secretion ability of neurotrophins (NT) and neural(More)
We propose a simplified depth-from-motion vision model based on leaky integrate-and-fire (LIF) neurons for edge detection and two-dimensional depth recovery. In the model, every LIF neuron is able to detect the irradiance edges passing through its receptive field in an optical flow field, and respond to the detection by firing a spike when the neuron's(More)
Human umbilical mesenchymal stem cells from Wharton's jelly of the umbilical cord were induced to differentiate into oligodendrocyte precursor-like cells in vitro. Oligodendrocyte precursor cells were transplanted into contused rat spinal cords. Immunofluorescence double staining indicated that transplanted cells survived in injured spinal cord, and(More)
AIM This study evaluated the clinical value of the combined detection of serum cathepsin L (CL), heparanase (Hpa), and matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) for determining the degree of ovarian cancer invasion and metastasis before surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays were used to measure the serum content of CL, Hpa, and MMP-9(More)
