A new insight into structural complexity in ferroelectric ceramics

The structure of the ferroelectrics has been widely studied in order to pursuing the origin of high electromechanical responses. However, some experiments on structure of ferroelectrics have yielded different results. Here, we report that the controversial phase structure is due to the adaptive diffraction of nanodomains which hides the natural crystal structure, and the electric...

Enhanced energy storage properties of Bi0.5Li0.5TiO3 modified Sr0.1Bi0.45Na0.45TiO3 based ceramics

Lead-free (1−x)Sr0.1Bi0.45Na0.45TiO3−xBi0.5Li0.5TiO3 (x = 0−0.4) ceramics were successfully prepared by a solid-state reaction technique. The effects of amount of Bi0.5Li0.5TiO3 on structure and electrical properties were examined. The X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis revealed that all the investigated specimens have a perovskite structure. An obvious change in microstructure...

Effects of exotic species Larix kaempferi on diversity and activity of soil microorganisms in Dalaoling National Forest Park

Introduction Soil microbial community plays a crucial role in the ecological processes of soil ecosystem. Forest species introduction often changes profoundly soil ecological processes in the forest. Larix kaempferi (Lam.) was introduced to China from Japan as a timber tree species in the 1960s. The activity and functional diversity of soil microorganisms in the L. kaempferi...

Analysis of the complete mitochondrial genome of Pochonia chlamydosporia suggests a close relationship to the invertebrate-pathogenic fungi in Hypocreales

Background The fungus Pochonia chlamydosporia parasitizes nematode eggs and has become one of the most promising biological control agents (BCAs) for plant-parasitic nematodes, which are major agricultural pests that cause tremendous economic losses worldwide. The complete mitochondrial (mt) genome is expected to open new avenues for understanding the phylogenetic relationships...

Difficulties in Eliminating Measles and Controlling Rubella and Mumps: A Cross-Sectional Study of a First Measles and Rubella Vaccination and a Second Measles, Mumps, and Rubella Vaccination

Background The reported coverage of the measles–rubella (MR) or measles–mumps–rubella (MMR) vaccine is greater than 99.0% in Zhejiang province. However, the incidence of measles, mumps, and rubella remains high. In this study, we assessed MMR seropositivity and disease distribution by age on the basis of the current vaccination program, wherein the first dose of MR is...

Tumorigenic Properties of Iron Regulatory Protein 2 (IRP2) Mediated by Its Specific 73-Amino Acids Insert

cells were freshly generated (Guohua Chen and Kostas Pantopoulos, unpublished observations). However, after several years of maintenance of the cell lines in the lab, we are unable to observe any

Phylogenetic analysis of Chinese sheeppox and goatpox virus isolates

Background Sheeppox virus (SPPV) and goatpox virus (GTPV), members of the Capripoxvirus genus of the Poxviridae family are causative agents of sheep pox and goat pox respectively, which are important contagious diseases and endemic in central and northern Africa, the Middle and Far East, and the Indian sub-continent. Both sheep pox and goat pox can cause wool and hide damage, and...

Construction of high-density genetic linkage maps for orange-spotted grouper Epinephelus coioides using multiplexed shotgun genotyping

Background Orange-spotted grouper, Epinephelus coioides, is one of the most valuable fish species in China. Commercial production of orange-spotted grouper could be increased by developing higher growth rates and improving commercially important traits. Information on genetic markers associated with quantitative trait loci (QTL) can be used in breeding programs to identify and...

Iron-dependent degradation of IRP2 requires its C-terminal region and IRP structural integrity

Background Iron regulatory protein 2 (IRP2), a post-transcriptional regulator of cellular iron metabolism, undergoes iron-dependent degradation via the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway. A stretch of 73 amino acids within the N-terminal domain 1 of the protein was reported to function as an iron sensor. However, mutants lacking this fragment remain sensitive to degradation in iron...

Overexpression of iron regulatory protein 1 suppresses growth of tumor xenografts

Iron is essential for proliferation of normal and neoplastic cells. Cellular iron uptake, utilization and storage are regulated by transcriptional and post-transcriptional mechanisms. We hypothesized that the disruption of iron homeostasis may modulate the growth properties of cancer cells. To address this, we employed H1299 lung cancer cells engineered for tetracycline-inducible...
