Study of Critical Current and n-Values of 2G HTS Tapes: Their Magnetic Field-Angular Dependence

Since many applications of YBCO tapes operate in external magnetic fields, it is necessary to investigate the magneto-angular dependence of critical current and n-values in coated conductors. In this paper, five commercial YBCO tapes with different microstructures produced by three different manufacturers are chosen. The selected samples have a width of 2.0, 4.0, 4.8, 6.0 or 12...

CXCL12 gene silencing down-regulates metastatic potential via blockage of MAPK/PI3K/AP-1 signaling pathway in colon cancer

Background To investigate the effect of CXCL12 gene silencing on proliferation,invasion, angiogenesis and the relationship of MAPK/PI3K/AP-1 signaling pathway in colon cancer cells. Methods RT-PCR and Western-blot were used to detect the expression of CXCL12 mRNA and protein in four colon cancer cell lines. Human colon cancer cells were transfected with CXCL12 siRNA carrying by...

A comparative analysis of the relationship between learning styles and mathematics performance

Background As an effort to account for disparities in mathematics performance between American and East Asian middle school students, the present research aims to compare the relationship between learning styles (competitive and cooperative) and mathematics performance among middle school students between the USA and the three top-performing East Asian countries (Hong Kong, Japan...

Investigating the Composition and Conductance Distributions on Highly GeSi Mixed Quantum Dots and Inside Oxidation Problem

With the help of a nanoscale trench, the composition and conductance distributions of single GeSi quantum dots (QDs) are obtained by conductive atomic force microscopy combined with selective chemical etching. However, the obtained composition and current distributions are unwonted and inconsistent on the QDs grown at 680 °C. With a series of confirmatory experiments, it is...

The morphology–density relation of galaxies around MACS J0717.5+3745*

We use an 18 × 9 arcmin2 mosaic of HST/ACS images covering the entire large-scale structure around the X-ray luminous cluster MACSJ0717.5+3745 (z= 0.545) to study the morphology of galaxies at the cluster redshift. We find the global fraction of morphological types of galaxies to be consistent with results in the literature. In addition, we confirm the morphology–density relation...

Outcomes of Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT) treatment of multiple synchronous and recurrent lung nodules

Background Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) is evolving into a standard of care for unresectable lung nodules. Local control has been shown to be in excess of 90% at 3 years. However, some patients present with synchronous lung nodules in the ipsilateral or contralateral lobe or metasynchronous disease. In these cases, patients may receive multiple courses of lung SBRT or a...

Large Intervening Non-Coding RNA HOTAIR is Associated with Hepatocellular Carcinoma Progression

Increasing evidence suggests that large intervening non-coding RNAs (lincRNAs) regulate key pathways in cancer invasion and metastasis. In this observational retrospective study, the expression of the oncogenic lincRNA HOX transcript antisense RNA (HOTAIR) gene was measured in 63 patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) following hepatic resection. The HOTAIR gene was...

An ALMA view of the interstellar medium of the z = 4.77 lensed starburst SPT-S J213242-5802.9

We present ALMA detections of the [NII] 205 μm and CO(12−11) emission lines, and the tentative detection of [CI] 3P1–3P0 for the strongly lensed (μ = 5.7 ± 0.5) dusty, star-forming galaxy SPT-S J213242-5802.9 (hereafter SPT2132-58) at z = 4.77. The [NII] and CO(12−11) lines are detected at 11.5 and 8.5σ levels, respectively, by our band 6 observations. The [CI] line is detected...

Enhanced Virus-Specific CD8+ T Cell Responses by Listeria monocytogenes-Infected Dendritic Cells in the Context of Tim-3 Blockade

In this study, we engineered Listeria monocytogens (Lm) by deleting the LmΔactA/ΔinlB virulence determinants and inserting HCV-NS5B consensus antigens to develop a therapeutic vaccine against hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. We tested this recombinant Lm-HCV vaccine in triggering of innate and adaptive immune responses in vitro using immune cells from HCV-infected and...

Value of Abdominal Susceptibility-Weighted Magnetic Resonance Imaging for Quantitative Assessment of Hepatic Iron Deposition in Patients with Chronic Hepatitis B: Comparison with Serum Iron Markers

OBJECTIVE: To assess hepatic iron deposition quantitatively in patients with chronic hepatitis B (HBV) infection, using abdominal susceptibility-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (SWI). METHODS: Patients with HBV infection and healthy controls underwent abdominal SWI and were assessed for serum iron markers. Phase values were measured and five grades of hepatic iron deposition...

MR Diffusion Tensor Imaging Detects Rapid Microstructural Changes in Amygdala and Hippocampus Following Fear Conditioning in Mice

Background Following fear conditioning (FC), ex vivo evidence suggests that early dynamics of cellular and molecular plasticity in amygdala and hippocampal circuits mediate responses to fear. Such altered dynamics in fear circuits are thought to be etiologically related to anxiety disorders including posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Consistent with this, neuroimaging studies...

The impact of a major cluster merger on galaxy evolution in MACS J0025.4−1225

We present results of an extensive morphological, spectroscopic and photometric study of the galaxy population of MACS J0025.4−1225 (z= 0.586), a major cluster merger with clear segregation of dark and luminous matter, to examine the impact of mergers on galaxy evolution. Based on 436 galaxy spectra obtained with Keck DEep Imaging Multi-Object Spectrograph (DEIMOS), we identified...

Probing the large-scale structure around the most distant galaxy clusters from the massive cluster survey

We present maps of the cosmic large-scale structure around the 12 most distant galaxy clusters from the Massive Cluster Survey (MACS) as traced by the projected surface density of galaxies on the cluster red sequence. Taken with the SuprimeCam wide-field camera on the Subaru telescope, the images used in this study cover a 27 × 27 arcmin2 area around each cluster, corresponding...

Reddening, colour and metallicity of the M31 globular cluster system

Using metallicities from the literature, combined with the Revised Bologna Catalogue of photometric data for M31 clusters and cluster candidates [the latter of which is the most comprehensive catalogue of M31 clusters currently available, including 337 confirmed globular clusters (GCs) and 688 GC candidates], we determine 443 reddening values and intrinsic colours, and 209...
