Characterization and physical mapping of nuclear ribosomal RNA (rRNA) genes in the haploid gametophytes of Saccharina japonica (Phaeophyta)

Nuclear tandemly repeated ribosomal RNA genes (18S-5.8S-25S rDNA and 5S rDNA) have been proven to be excellent cytogenetic markers for karyotype analysis of various higher plants by using the fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) technique. To illustrate physical mapping of these rDNAs in brown seaweed, Saccharina japonica, chromosomes, an approximately 5400-bp transcription ...

Random X-chromosome inactivation dynamics in vivo by single-cell RNA sequencing

Background Random X-chromosome inactivation (rXCI) is important for the maintenance of normal somatic cell functions in female eutherian mammals. The dynamics of X-chromosome inactivation initiation has been widely studied by assessing embryonic stem cell differentiation in vitro. To investigate the phenomenon in vivo, we applied RNA sequencing to single cells from female embryos ...

Goal-directed fluid restriction during brain surgery: a prospective randomized controlled trial

Background The value of goal-directed fluid therapy in neurosurgical patients, where brain swelling is a major concern, is unknown. The aim of our study was to evaluate the effect of an intraoperative goal-directed fluid restriction (GDFR) strategy on the postoperative outcome of high-risk patients undergoing brain surgery. Methods High-risk patients undergoing brain surgery were ...

Optimized monitoring sites for detection of biodiversity trends in China

Properly designed monitoring networks can generate data to understand status and trends of biodiversity, and to assess progress towards conservation targets. However, biodiversity monitoring is often affected by poor sampling design. We proposed an approach to choosing optimized monitoring sites among large areas. Based on comprehensive distribution data of 34,284 vertebrates and ...

Balance chiropractic therapy for cervical spondylotic radiculopathy: study protocol for a randomized controlled trial

Background Cervical spondylosis is a very common disorder and cervical spondylotic radiculopathy (CSR) is the most common form of spinal degenerative disease. Its clinical manifestations focus on pain and numbness of the neck and arm as well as restricted movement of the neck, which greatly affect the patient’s life and work. The orthopedic of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) ...

Low CCL17 expression associates with unfavorable postoperative prognosis of patients with clear cell renal cell carcinoma

Background Chemokine (C–C motif) ligand 17 (CCL17) is a chemokine mainly produced by myeloid dendritic cells. It is a ligand for CC chemokine receptor 4 (CCR4) and CC chemokine receptor 8 (CCR8). The aim of this study was to investigate prognostic values of CCL17 expression in patients with clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC). Methods The study included 286 patients with ccRCC. ...

Latent Structure Preserving Hashing

Aiming at efficient similarity search, hash functions are designed to embed high-dimensional feature descriptors to low-dimensional binary codes such that similar descriptors will lead to binary codes with a short distance in the Hamming space. It is critical to effectively maintain the intrinsic structure and preserve the original information of data in a hashing algorithm. In ...

Clinical and prognostic analysis of 78 patients with human immuno-deficiency virus associated non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in Chinese population

Background Human Immuno-deficiency Virus (HIV) associated non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) was a special group of disease, which manifests distinct clinical features and prognosis as compared with NHLs in patients without HIV. We performed this study to describe the clinical features of the disease and investigated the potential prognostic factors. Methods HIV-infected patients who ...

miR-15a/16 reduces retinal leukostasis through decreased pro-inflammatory signaling

Background Hyperglycemia is a significant risk factor for diabetic retinopathy and induces increased inflammatory responses and retinal leukostasis, as well as vascular damage. Although there is an increasing amount of evidence that miRNA may be involved in the regulation in the pathology of diabetic retinopathy, the mechanisms by which miRNA mediate cellular responses to control ...

Potential factors involved in the causation of rhabdomyolysis following status asthmaticus

Rhabdomyolysis is a rare but potentially fatal complication of status asthmaticus. Since the first case was reported in 1978, only a few dozen cases have been described till date. We performed a literature review with the aim to characterize the pathophysiological basis of the occurrence of rhabdomyolysis in patients with status asthmaticus. Excessive exertion of respiratory ...

A novel mutant allele of SSI2 confers a better balance between disease resistance and plant growth inhibition on Arabidopsis thaliana

Background Resistance and growth are opposing characteristics in plants. SA INSENSITIVITY OF npr1-5 (SSI2) encodes a stearoyl-ACP desaturase (S-ACP DES) that has previously been reported to simultaneously enhance resistance and repress growth. Results Here, we characterize ssi2-2, a novel mutant allele of SSI2 that has two amino acid substitutions. Compared with wild-type and two ...

Preparing of Highly Conductive Patterns on Flexible Substrates by Screen Printing of Silver Nanoparticles with Different Size Distribution

A facile one-step polyol method is employed to synthesize the Ag nanoparticles (NPs) in large scale. The Ag NPs with different average diameter (from 52 to 120 nm) and particle size distribution are prepared by changing the mass ratio of AgNO3 and PVP. Furthermore, the as-obtained Ag NPs are prepared as conductive inks, which could be screen printed on various flexible substrates ...

Identification and tissue expression profiling of odorant binding protein genes in the red palm weevil, Rhynchophorus ferrugineus

Background The red palm weevil, Rhynchophorus ferrugineus, is a lethal pest of the palms. The identification of odorant binding protein (OBP) genes will be helpful for clarifing the mechanism of odorant detection of this pest. By sequencing the full length cDNA library of its antenne, 11 OBP genes (RferOBP1-11) were identified. Findings The result showed RferOBP1-7 and RferOBP8-11 ...

RGB-D datasets using microsoft kinect or similar sensors: a survey

RGB-D data has turned out to be a very useful representation of an indoor scene for solving fundamental computer vision problems. It takes the advantages of the color image that provides appearance information of an object and also the depth image that is immune to the variations in color, illumination, rotation angle and scale. With the invention of the low-cost Microsoft Kinect ...

Chemotherapy promotes tumour cell hybridization in vivo

Spontaneous cell-cell fusion has been recognized to be an important mechanism for tissue and organ development and repair. In cancer, cell fusion is critically involved in tumourigenesis, metastasis and drug resistance, as illustrated by in vitro experiments. However, there has been no direct detection of tumour cell fusion or hybridization in an in vivo tumour environment, and the ...

Kernelized Multiview Projection for Robust Action Recognition

Conventional action recognition algorithms adopt a single type of feature or a simple concatenation of multiple features. In this paper, we propose to better fuse and embed different feature representations for action recognition using a novel spectral coding algorithm called Kernelized Multiview Projection (KMP). Computing the kernel matrices from different features/views via ...
