Empathy refers to the ability to perceive and share another person's affective state. Much neuroimaging evidence suggests that observing others' suffering and pain elicits activations of the anterior insular and the anterior cingulate cortices associated with subjective empathetic responses in the observer. However, these observations do not provide causal(More)
Viral diarrhea is a great threat to children’s health in developing countries. We conducted a prospective surveillance study of acute diarrhea of young children at Tianjin Children’s Hospital from April 2008 to April 2009. Viral infections were detected in 356 of the total 766 collected stool specimens (46.48%). Rotavirus infections were the most common(More)
OBJECTIVE To obtain geranylgeranyl diphosphate synthase gene of Salvia miltiorrhiza, and conduct bioinformatic and transcript expression analysis of the cloned SmGGPS1 gene. METHOD The degenerate primers were designed based on the conservative regions of GGPS protein sequences from public databases. The target gene was obtained from root of S.(More)
Pentachlorophenol (PCP) is a ubiquitous contaminant that has been shown to lead to hepatoxicity and is implicated in the incidence of liver tumors in human. A number of previous studies have described the toxic effects of PCP based on conventional toxicological indices. However, little evidence on protein levels is available at present. For further(More)
Based on a combination of the molecular imprinting technique and polymerized crystalline colloidal array, we have developed an imprinted crystalline colloidal array (ICCA) chemical-sensing material for the real-time and label-free detection of diethylstilbestrol (DES) in aqueous solution. This novel sensing material was prepared by a noncovalent and(More)
This work reports a kind of novel bilayer lipid membranes (BLMs) nucleic acid biosensor supported by modified patch-clamp pipette electrode was developed to detect staphylococcus enterotoxins B (SEB) gene. BLMs were formed within 15 min and able to be operated at least 24 h. Hydrophobic dodecane tail (C12) modified 18 bp single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) probe(More)
Cu-Al spinel oxide, which contains a small portion of the CuO phase, has been successfully used in methanol steam reforming (MSR) without prereduction. The omission of prereduction not only avoids the copper sintering prior to the catalytic reaction, but also slows down the copper-sintering rate in MSR. During this process, the CuO phase can initiate MSR at(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical features of spinal schwannomas in patients with schwannomatosis and compare them with a large cohort of patients with solitary schwannomas and neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF2). METHODS The study was a retrospective review of 831 patients with solitary schwannomas, 65 with schwannomatosis, and 102(More)
BACKGROUND Unilateral adult thalamic gliomas are rarely reported. In this study, the authors aimed to analyze the clinical, radiological, and pathological features of adult primary unilateral thalamus gliomas (UTGs). METHODS Clinical data of 33 UTGs in adults who underwent surgical treatment between 2005 and 2014 at the Beijing Tiantan Hospital were(More)
Integrin αvβ3 is overexpressed in both neovasculature and glioma cells. We aimed to evaluate (68)gallium-BNOTA-PRGD2 ((68)Ga-PRGD2) as a new reagent for noninvasive integrin αvβ3 imaging in glioma patients. With informed consent, 12 patients with suspicious brain glioma, as diagnosed by enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanning, were enrolled to(More)
