Optimal economic operation of isolated community microgrid incorporating temperature controlling devices

With the increasing connection of controllable devices to isolated community microgrid, an economic operation model of isolated community microgrid based on the temperature regulation characteristics of temperature controlling devices composed of wind turbine, micro-gas turbine, energy storage battery and heat pump is proposed. With full consideration of various economic costs...

Mycoalgae biofilm: development of a novel platform technology using algae and fungal cultures

Background Microalgae is considered a promising source for biofuel and bioenergy production, bio-remediation and production of high-value bioactive compounds, but harvesting microalgae is a major bottleneck in the algae based processes. The objective of this research is to mimic the growth of natural lichen and develop a novel biofilm platform technology using filamentous fungi...

Transurethral 160-W straight beam green laser vaporesection of the prostate: initial experience after 180 procedures

Although the photoselective vaporization of the prostate has been considered one of the most promising alternatives for treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), published clinical data with the surgical technology of straight beam lithium triborate laser (LBO) is still lacking. To evaluate the technical improvement and initial experience of the 160-W straight beam LBO...

Behaviors and Strategies of Bacterial Navigation in Chemical and Nonchemical Gradients

Navigation of cells to the optimal environmental condition is critical for their survival and growth. Escherichia coli cells, for example, can detect various chemicals and move up or down those chemical gradients (i.e., chemotaxis). Using the same signaling machinery, they can also sense other external factors such as pH and temperature and navigate from both sides toward some...

Metabolic engineering of Methylobacterium extorquens AM1 for 1-butanol production

Background Butanol is a promising next generation fuel and a bulk chemical precursor. Although clostridia are the primary industrial microbes for the fermentative production of 1-butanol, alternative engineered hosts have the potential to generate 1-butanol from alternative carbon feedstocks via synthetic metabolic pathways. Methylobacterium extorquens AM1, a facultative...

MethylAction: detecting differentially methylated regions that distinguish biological subtypes

DNA methylation differences capture substantial information about the molecular and gene-regulatory states among biological subtypes. Enrichment-based next generation sequencing methods such as MBD-isolated genome sequencing (MiGS) and MeDIP-seq are appealing for studying DNA methylation genome-wide in order to distinguish between biological subtypes. However, current analytic...

Mitochondrial Haplogroups and Risk of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a serious and often fatal disease. It is a panvasculopathy of the pulmonary microcirculation characterized by vasoconstriction and arterial obstruction due to vascular proliferation and remodeling and ultimately right ventricular failure. Mitochondrial dysfunction is a universal finding in pulmonary vascular cells of patients with PAH, and...

Terminal sliding mode control for cyber physical system based on filtering backstepping

Based on a nonlinear flight dynamic model with aerodynamic coefficients and external disturbance uncertainties, which is a typical cyber physical system, a filtering backstepping terminal sliding mode control method is proposed for a robust controller. The tracking differentiator can provide the capability of solving the problem of “complexity explosion” in backstepping...

Metabolomics Revealed an Association of Metabolite Changes and Defective Growth in Methylobacterium extorquens AM1 Overexpressing ecm during Growth on Methanol

Methylobacterium extorquens AM1 is a facultative methylotroph capable of growth on both single-carbon and multi-carbon compounds. The ethylmalonyl-CoA (EMC) pathway is one of the central assimilatory pathways in M. extorquens during growth on C1 and C2 substrates. Previous studies had shown that ethylmalonyl-CoA mutase functioned as a control point during the transition from...

Development of a Peptide ELISA for the Diagnosis of Aleutian Mink Disease

Aleutian disease (AD) is a common immunosuppressive disease in mink farms world-wide. Since the 1980s, counterimmunoelectrophoresis (CIEP) has been the main detection method for infection with the Aleutian Mink Disease Virus (AMDV). In this study, six peptides derived from the AMDV structural protein VP2 were designed, synthesized, and used as ELISA antigens to detect anti-AMDV...

Association of AT1R polymorphism with hypertension risk: An update meta-analysis based on 28,952 subjects

Background: Previous studies have shown that angiotensin II AT1 receptor gene (AT1R) polymorphisms are associated with the risk for hypertension. However, the results remain controversial. In the present study, we performed a meta-analysis to systematically summarize the association between AT1R genetic polymorphisms and the risk for hypertension.

Comprehensive molecular characterization of Methylobacterium extorquens AM1 adapted for 1-butanol tolerance

Background The toxicity of alcohols is one of the major roadblocks of biological fermentation for biofuels production. Methylobacterium extorquens AM1, a facultative methylotrophic α-proteobacterium, has been engineered to generate 1-butanol from cheap carbon feedstocks through a synthetic metabolic pathway. However, M. extorquens AM1 is vulnerable to solvent stress, which...
