High-Performance Photo-Modulated Thin-Film Transistor Based on Quantum dots/Reduced Graphene Oxide Fragment-Decorated ZnO Nanowires

In this paper, a photo-modulated transistor based on the thin-film transistor structure was fabricated on the flexible substrate by spin-coating and magnetron sputtering. A novel hybrid material that composed of CdSe quantum dots and reduced graphene oxide (RGO) fragment-decorated ZnO nanowires was synthesized to overcome the narrow optical sensitive waveband and enhance the...

A genetic variant of the NTCP gene is associated with HBV infection status in a Chinese population

Background To investigate whether genetic variants of the HBV receptor gene NTCP are associated with HBV infection in the Han Chinese population. Methods We sequenced the entire 23 kb NTCP gene from 111 HBeAg-positive HBsAg carriers (PSE group), 110 HBeAg-negative HBsAg carriers (PS group), and 110 control subjects. Then, we performed association analyses of suggestively...

Influences of APOA5 Variants on Plasma Triglyceride Levels in Uyghur Population

Objective Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in apolipoprotein A5 (APOA5) gene are associated with triglyceride (TG) levels. However, the minor allele frequencies and linkage disequilibriums (LDs) of the SNPs in addition to their effects on TG levels vary greatly between Caucasians and East Asians. The distributions of the SNPs/haplotypes and their associations with TG levels...

Association of the angiotensinogen M235T polymorphism with recurrence after catheter ablation of acquired atrial fibrillation

Purpose: Previous studies showed that genetic variants of the angiotensinogen (AGT) gene conferred higher risk for acquired atrial fibrillation (AF). The present study investigated whether AGT variants correlate with the clinical outcome in patients with acquired AF after catheter ablation (CA).

Spatiotemporal Pattern of Bacillary Dysentery in China from 1990 to 2009: What Is the Driver Behind?

Background Little is known about the spatiotemporal pattern of bacillary dysentery (BD) in China. This study assessed the geographic distribution and seasonality of BD in China over the past two decades. Methods Data on monthly BD cases in 31 provinces of China from January 1990 to December 2009 obtained from Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, and data on...

The spatio-temporal modeling for criminal incidents

Law enforcement agencies monitor criminal incidents. With additional geographic and demographic data, law enforcement analysts look for spatio-temporal patterns in these incidents in order to predict future criminal activity. When done correctly these predictions can inform actions that can improve security and reduce the impact of crime. Effective prediction requires the...

Addition of External Organic Carbon and Native Soil Organic Carbon Decomposition: A Meta-Analysis

Background Extensive studies have been conducted to evaluate the effect of external organic Carbon on native soil organic carbon (SOC) decomposition. However, the direction and extent of this effect reported by different authors is inconsistent. Objective The objective was to provide a synthesis of existing data that comprehensively and quantitatively evaluates how the soil...

A community assessment of privacy preserving techniques for human genomes

To answer the need for the rigorous protection of biomedical data, we organized the Critical Assessment of Data Privacy and Protection initiative as a community effort to evaluate privacy-preserving dissemination techniques for biomedical data. We focused on the challenge of sharing aggregate human genomic data (e.g., allele frequencies) in a way that preserves the privacy of the...

Association between TLR4 (+896A/G and +1196C/T) Polymorphisms and Gastric Cancer Risk: An Updated Meta-Analysis

Background Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) is a receptor of lipopolysaccharide in the signaling transduction of gastric epithelial cell. It plays a pivotal role in activation of innate immunity and pathogen recognition and thus acts as a modulator in the development and progression of gastric cancer. Growing studies explored the association of polymorphisms in TLR4 with...

Theoretical study of the effects of different substituents of tetrathiafulvalene derivatives on charge transport

Density functional theory calculations were carried out to investigate the charge transfer of four tetrathiafulvalene derivatives. Perfluorination of dibenzo-tetrathiafulvalene (DB-TTF) increased the reorganization energy and was considered disadvantageous for the charge-transport process. Fluorination lowered the frontier orbitals of the compound, favoring electron—rather than...

Smooth Muscle Enfoldment Internal Sphincter Construction after Intersphincteric Resection for Rectal Cancer

Objective To assess smooth muscle enfoldment and internal sphincter construction (SMESC) for improvement of continence after intersphincteric resection (ISR) for rectal cancer. Methods Twenty-four Bama miniature pigs were randomly divided into a conventional ISR group and experimental SMESC group, with 12 pigs in each group. The proximal sigmoid colon was anastomosed directly to...

Investigation of Anthrax Cases in North-East China, 2010-2014

We determined the genotypes of seven Bacillus anthracis strains that were recovered from nine anthrax outbreaks in North-East China from 2010 to 2014, and two approved vaccine strains that are currently in use in China. The causes of these cases were partly due to local farmers being unaware of the presence of anthrax, and butchers with open wounds having direct contact with...

Correlating Function and Imaging Measures of the Medial Longitudinal Fasciculus

Objective To test the validity of diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) measures of tissue injury by examining such measures in a white matter structure with well-defined function, the medial longitudinal fasciculus (MLF). Injury to the MLF underlies internuclear ophthalmoparesis (INO). Methods 40 MS patients with chronic INO and 15 healthy controls were examined under an IRB-approved...

Groundbreaking gas source rock correlation research based on the application of a new experimental approach for adsorbed gas

Many years of experimentation have led to the development and improvement of equipment and methods used to make gas source rock correlations. By crushing samples using a ball mill and directly collecting adsorbed gases in the absence of aqueous media under high vacuum conditions, most possible interference factors, such as atmospheric pollution, crushing-induced pyrolysis, and...

Soybean Endo-β-Mannanase GmMAN1 Is Not Associated with Leaf Abscission, but Might Be Involved in the Response to Wounding

The objective of this work is to investigate the relationship between endo-β-mannanase and leaf abscission, and response to wounding in soybean (Glycine max). An endo-β-mannanase gene GmMAN1 was cloned from the abscission zone in petiole explants, and was heterologously expressed in E. coli. Polyclonal antibodies were raised against the fusion protein. The increases in activity...
