Heterogeneous destruction of the North China Craton: Coupled constraints from seismology and geodynamic numerical modeling

The prevailing academic view regards mantle flow and the metasomatism triggered by the subduction of the Pacific plate as the cause and mechanism for the destruction of the North China Craton (NCC). However, the geodynamic destruction process remains ambiguous, necessitating detailed information at this stage. Combining the structural images obtained by the exploration of dense...

Existence of solutions for the delayed nonlinear fractional functional differential equations with three-point integral boundary value conditions

Kaihong Zhao Kun Wang This paper is concerned with the three-point integral boundary value problems of time-delay nonlinear fractional functional differential equations involving Caputo fractional

A brain-computer interface driven by imagining different force loads on a single hand: an online feasibility study

Motor imagery (MI) induced EEG patterns are widely used as control signals for brain-computer interfaces (BCIs). Kinetic and kinematic factors have been proved to be able to change EEG patterns during motor execution and motor imagery. However, to our knowledge, there is still no literature reporting an effective online MI-BCI using kinetic factor regulated EEG oscillations. This...

microRNAs: important regulators of stem cells

Stem cells are undifferentiated cells and have multi-lineage differentiation potential. Generally, stem cells are classified into adult stem cells, embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). Stem cells have great potential in clinical therapy due to their pluripotency and self-renewal ability. microRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding RNAs which are...

Overexpression of c-Met in bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells improves their effectiveness in homing and repair of acute liver failure

Background Transplantation of bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) has emerged as a novel therapy for acute liver failure (ALF). However, the homing efficiency of BMSCs to the injured liver sites appears to be poor. In this study, we aimed to determine if overexpression of c-Met in BMSCs could promote the homing ability of BMSCs to rat livers affected by ALF...

Postreconstruction filtering of 3D PET images by using weighted higher-order singular value decomposition

Background Positron emission tomography (PET) always suffers from high levels of noise due to the constraints of the injected dose and acquisition time, especially in the studies of dynamic PET imaging. To improve the quality of PET image, several approaches have been introduced to suppress noise. However, traditional filters often blur the image edges, or erase small detail, or...

T140 blocks the SDF-1/CXCR4 signaling pathway and prevents cartilage degeneration in an osteoarthritis disease model

Osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the most common diseases affecting older people; however, there remains no effective targeted drug to combat OA. The aims of this study were (1) to explore the effect of T140 in regulating degeneration of articular cartilage in vivo by targeted blocking of the SDF-1/CXCR4 signaling pathway, and (2) to provide experimental evidence for the development...

The genome-scale DNA-binding profile of BarR, a β-alanine responsive transcription factor in the archaeon Sulfolobus acidocaldarius

Background The Leucine-responsive Regulatory Protein (Lrp) family is a widespread family of regulatory transcription factors in prokaryotes. BarR is an Lrp-like transcription factor in the model archaeon Sulfolobus acidocaldarius that activates the expression of a β-alanine aminotransferase gene, which is involved in β-alanine degradation. In contrast to classical Lrp-like...

Two-body physics in quasi-low-dimensional atomic gases under spin–orbit coupling

One of the most dynamic directions in ultracold atomic gas research is the study of low-dimensional physics in quasi-low-dimensional geometries, where atoms are confined in strongly anisotropic traps. Recently, interest has significantly intensified with the realization of synthetic spin–orbit coupling (SOC). As a first step toward understanding the SOC effect in quasi-low...

Loss of H3K9me3 Correlates with ATM Activation and Histone H2AX Phosphorylation Deficiencies in Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome

Compelling evidence suggests that defective DNA damage response (DDR) plays a key role in the premature aging phenotypes in Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS). Studies document widespread alterations in histone modifications in HGPS cells, especially, the global loss of histone H3 trimethylated on lysine 9 (H3K9me3). In this study, we explore the potential connection(s...

Transposable elements play an important role during cotton genome evolution and fiber cell development

Transposable elements (TEs) usually occupy largest fractions of plant genome and are also the most variable part of the structure. Although traditionally it is hallmarked as “junk and selfish DNA”, today more and more evidence points out TE’s participation in gene regulations including gene mutation, duplication, movement and novel gene creation via genetic and epigenetic...

Genome-Wide Dissection of the MicroRNA Expression Profile in Rice Embryo during Early Stages of Seed Germination

The first 24 hours after imbibition (HAI) is pivotal for rice seed germination, during which embryo cells switch from a quiescent state to a metabolically active state rapidly. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have increasingly been shown to play important roles in rice development. Nevertheless, limited knowledge about miRNA regulation has been obtained in the early stages of rice seed...
