Significance Dengue is a vector-borne infectious disease that threatens human health on a global scale. Because of climate change, globalization, and other factors, dengue has increasingly spread to… Expand
Incompatible and sterile insect techniques combined eliminate mosquitoes
The radiation-based sterile insect technique (SIT) has successfully suppressed field populations of several insect pest species, but its effect on mosquito vector control has been limited. The… Expand
Synthetic peptides containing B- and T-cell epitope of dengue virus-2 E domain III provoked B- and T-cell responses.
Our previous work applied a combination of bioinformatics approaches and in vitro assays to identify the dengue-2 virus (DENV-2)-specific B- and T-cell epitopes. In this report, we first evaluated… Expand

BACKGROUND We investigated an outbreak of gluteal abscesses following intramuscular (IM) injections given at a clinic in rural China to identify the causative agent, source, and method of exposure.… Expand
Opposing influences of ruffling and doming deformation on the 4-N cavity size of porphyrin macrocycles: the role of heme deformations revealed.
Ruffle- and dome-type porphyrins were developed as model systems to investigate the role of deformation mode and degree of distortion in heme. Their crystal structures revealed that as the degree of… Expand
Conversion of electron configuration of iron ion through core contraction of porphyrin: implications for heme distortion.

- Organic letters
- 16 January 2013
It was demonstrated experimentally that nonplanar iron porphyrins can be induced to undergo a conversion in their electronic configuration to form a cross-hybrid transition by compressing the… Expand

- Inorganic chemistry
- 5 September 2013
The rotation of meso-aryl groups in porphyrins depends on the degree of macrocyclic distortion and is also influenced by the surrounding temperature. Dynamic NMR methods and crystal structures of… Expand
A Randomly-Controlled Study on the Cardiac Function at the Early Stage of Return to the Plains after Short-Term Exposure to High Altitude
High altitude acclimatization and adaptation mechanisms have been well clarified, however, high altitude de-adaptation mechanism remains unclear. In this study, we conducted a controlled study on… Expand
