ALK-positive gastric inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor in an adult with familial adenomatous polyposis and diffuse fundic polyposis

Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) of the stomach is extremely rare in adults and exhibits a variable biological behavior that ranges from frequently benign lesions to more aggressive variants. Here we report a case of gastric IMT with lymph node metastasis in an adult who had undergone total colectomy for familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). A 37-year-old man presented...

Artificial Momentum, Native Contrarian, and Transparency in China

The Chinese stock market has a large ratio of retail investors, which is significantly different from the stock markets in the US and Europe. We have known that momentum profits exist in the latter by applying Jegadeesh and Titman’s (J Financ 48:65–91, 1993) model with 6-month formation and holding periods. However, there are only a few studies on momentum profits in China...

Performance of back-illuminated \(\hbox {In}_{0.09}\hbox {Ga}_{0.91}\hbox {N}\) -based p–i–n photodetector

In this paper, the back-illuminated \(\hbox {In}_{0.09}\hbox {Ga}_{0.91}\hbox {N}\) p–i–n ultraviolet photodetectors have been fabricated and simulated. The responsivity characteristic was shown experimentally and theoretically. The peak responsivity of photodetector was improved from 0.06 A/W at 394 nm to 0.19 A/W at 402 nm since the growth of a 30 nm i-GaN layer between i-InGaN...

Identification of environmental stressors and validation of light preference as a measure of anxiety in larval zebrafish

Background Larval zebrafish, with a simple and transparent vertebrate brain composed of ~100 K neurons, is well suited for deciphering entire neural circuit activity underlying behavior. Moreover, their small body size (~4–5 mm in length) is compatible with 96-well plates, making larval zebrafish amenable to high content screening. Despite these attractive features, there is a...

Some results on a certain type of difference equation originated from difference Painlevé I equation

In this paper, by using Nevanlinna value distribution theory, we consider a certain type of difference equation, which originates with the difference Painlevé I equation, f ( z + 1 ) + f ( z − 1 ) = A ( z ) f ( z ) + C ( z ) , where A ( z ) , C ( z ) are small meromorphic functions relative to f ( z ) , and we obtain the existence and the forms of rational solutions. We also...

Characteristic Analysis of Sandstorms in Taklamakan Desert

Firstly, the annual variation of sandstorm and strong sandstorm weather process in China from 2000 to 2012 is analyzed according to the “Sand-Dust Weather Yearbook” (2012). Secondly, based on the ERA-Interim Reanalysis from ECMWF and MISR data from the Terra satellite, we investigate the correlation between different dust weather process and land meteorological elements. Finally...

Active Hydrogen Bond Network (AHBN) and Applications for Improvement of Thermal Stability and pH-Sensitivity of Pullulanase from Bacillus naganoensis

A method, so called “active hydrogen bond network” (AHBN), is proposed for site-directed mutations of hydrolytic enzymes. In an enzyme the AHBN consists of the active residues, functional residues, and conservative water molecules, which are connected by hydrogen bonds, forming a three dimensional network. In the catalysis hydrolytic reactions of hydrolytic enzymes AHBN is...

Prevalence of diabetes and unrecognized diabetes in hypertensive patients aged 40 to 79 years in southwest China

This study aimed to assess the prevalence of diabetes and unrecognized diabetes in hypertensive patients aged 40 to 79 years in Southwest China. From September 2013 to March 2014, a cross-sectional survey was conducted in 4021 hypertensive patients aged 40 to 79 years living in Chengdu and Chongqing, China. Fasting plasma glucose (FPG) and 2h plasma glucose (2-hPG) in an oral...

Study on a calibration equation for soil water content in field tests using time domain reflectometry

The crucial point in calibrating soil water content using the technology of time domain reflectometry (TDR) is to establish the relationship between the apparent dielectric constant and the water content. Based on a database, which included 45 kinds of soil samples and 418 data points from our own test data and relevant literature, an empirical calibration equation is proposed...

A High-Content Larval Zebrafish Brain Imaging Method for Small Molecule Drug Discovery

Drug discovery in whole-organisms such as zebrafish is a promising approach for identifying biologically-relevant lead compounds. However, high content imaging of zebrafish at cellular resolution is challenging due to the difficulty in orienting larvae en masse such that the cell type of interest is in clear view. We report the development of the multi-pose imaging method, which...

Elevated Progesterone Levels on the Day of Oocyte Maturation May Affect Top Quality Embryo IVF Cycles

In contrast to the impact of elevated progesterone on endometrial receptivity, the data on whether increased progesterone levels affects the quality of embryos is still limited. This study retrospectively enrolled 4,236 fresh in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles and sought to determine whether increased progesterone is associated with adverse outcomes with regard to top quality...

Expanding the CRISPR imaging toolset with Staphylococcus aureus Cas9 for simultaneous imaging of multiple genomic loci

In order to elucidate the functional organization of the genome, it is vital to directly visualize the interactions between genomic elements in living cells. For this purpose, we engineered the Cas9 protein from Staphylococcus aureus (SaCas9) for the imaging of endogenous genomic loci, which showed a similar robustness and efficiency as previously reported for Streptococcus...

Exploring Strong Interactions in Proteins with Quantum Chemistry and Examples of Their Applications in Drug Design

Objectives Three strong interactions between amino acid side chains (salt bridge, cation-π, and amide bridge) are studied that are stronger than (or comparable to) the common hydrogen bond interactions, and play important roles in protein-protein interactions. Methods Quantum chemical methods MP2 and CCSD(T) are used in calculations of interaction energies and structural...
