Recent studies have shown that low-power ZigBee based wireless sensor networks (WSN) are vulnerable to the interference generated by Wi-Fi nodes. In this study, the effects of energy detection (ED) mechanism in clear channel assessment (CCA) of ZigBee transmitter under 802.11g Wi-Fi interference have been evaluated through experimentation. To improve the(More)
Genomic regions controlling abdominal fatness (AF) were studied in the Northeast Agricultural University broiler line divergently selected for AF. In this study, the chicken 60KSNP chip and extended haplotype homozygosity (EHH) test were used to detect genome-wide signatures of AF. A total of 5357 and 5593 core regions were detected in the lean and fat(More)
We conducted a selection signature analysis using the chicken 60k SNP chip in two chicken lines that had been divergently selected for abdominal fat content (AFC) for 11 generations. The selection signature analysis used multiple signals of selection, including long-range allele frequency differences between the lean and fat lines, long-range heterozygosity(More)
BACKGROUND Increased disease resistance through improved general immune capacity would be beneficial for the welfare and productivity of farm animals. T lymphocyte subpopulations in peripheral blood play an important role in immune capacity and disease resistance in animals. However, very little research to date has focused on quantitative trait loci (QTL)(More)
Recent studies have shown that the low-power ZigBee based wireless sensor networks (WSN) are vulnerable to the interference of Wi-Fi wireless local area networks (WLAN). From our experimental studies on this coexistence issue, it is found that there are a large number of acknowledgement (ACK) packet losses in the ZigBee packet transmission process, which,(More)
In this study, the yeast strain P5 isolated from a mangrove system was identified to be a strain of Aureobasidium pullulans var. melanogenum and was found to be able to secrete a large amount of heavy oil into medium. After optimization of the medium for heavy oil production and cell growth by the yeast strain P5, it was found that 120.0 g/l of glucose and(More)
Cholera toxin (CT), a virulence factor elaborated by Vibrio cholerae, is sufficient to induce the severe diarrhea characteristic of cholera. The enzymatic moiety of CT (CtxA) increases cAMP synthesis in intestinal epithelial cells, leading to chloride ion (Cl(-)) efflux through the CFTR Cl(-) channel. To preserve electroneutrality and osmotic balance,(More)
In recent years, services based on cloud computing have been used more and more widely. Stakeholders have paid more and more attention on the quality of cloud service. But most of them don't know how to evaluate the quality of cloud service. This paper proposes a comprehensive, structurized, and hierarchical quality model of cloud service, which concerned(More)
RhoA is a small guanosine-5'-triphosphatase (GTPase) suggested to be essential for cytokinesis, stress fiber formation, and epithelial cell-cell contacts. In skin, loss of RhoA was suggested to underlie pemphigus skin blistering. To analyze RhoA function in vivo, we generated mice with a keratinocyte-restricted deletion of the RhoA gene. Despite a severe(More)
BACKGROUND Obesity is a multifactorial disorder influenced by genetic and environmental factors. Animal models of obesity are required to help us understand the signaling pathways underlying this condition. Zebrafish possess many structural and functional similarities with humans and have been used to model various human diseases, including a genetic model(More)
