Localized Surface Plasmon Resonance Dependence on Misaligned Truncated Ag Nanoprism Dimer

Misaligned edge-to-edge dimers are the common products during the preparation of Ag nanoprism dimers using self-assembly method. However, in the self-assembly method, Ag nanoprisms are easily truncated because they are easy to oxidize in an acidic environment. In this work, modeling a truncated Ag nanoprism on a misaligned edge-to-edge dimer provides a better understanding of the ...

Y-system for γ-deformed ABJM theory

We investigate the integrable aspects of the planar γ-deformed ABJM theory and propose the twisted asymptotic Bethe ansatz equations. A more general method through a twisted generating functional is discussed, based on which, the asymptotic large L solution of Y-system is modified in order to match the asymptotic Bethe ansatz equations. Several applications of our method in the ...

Facile synthesis of T-Nb2O5 nanosheets/nitrogen and sulfur co-doped graphene for high performance lithium-ion hybrid supercapacitors

Li-ion hybrid supercapacitors (Li-HSCs) have attracted increasing attention as a promising energy storage device with both high power and energy densities. We report a facile two-step hydrothermal method to prepare the orthorhombic niobium oxide (T-Nb2O5) nanosheets supported on nitrogen and sulfur co-doped graphene (T-Nb2O5/NS-G) as anode for Li-HSCs. X-ray diffraction and ...

Sleep spindle detection based on non-experts: A validation study

Accurate and efficient detection of sleep spindles is a methodological challenge. The present study describes a method of using non-experts for manual detection of sleep spindles. We recruited five experts and 168 non-experts to manually identify spindles in stage N2 and stage N3 sleep data using a MATLAB interface. Scorers classified each spindle into definite and indefinite ...

Sample size calculation while controlling false discovery rate for differential expression analysis with RNA-sequencing experiments

Background RNA-Sequencing (RNA-seq) experiments have been popularly applied to transcriptome studies in recent years. Such experiments are still relatively costly. As a result, RNA-seq experiments often employ a small number of replicates. Power analysis and sample size calculation are challenging in the context of differential expression analysis with RNA-seq data. One challenge ...

The Sirt6 gene: Does it play a role in tooth development?

Dental Mesenchymal Cells (DMCs) are known to play a role in tooth development as well as in the repair and regeneration of dental tissue. A large number of signaling molecules regulate the proliferation and differentiation of DMC, though the underlying mechanisms are still not fully understood. Sirtuin-6 (SIRT6), a key regulator of aging, can exert an impact on embryonic stem cell ...

Application of a novel rectal cooling device in hypothermia therapy after cerebral hypoxia-ischemia in rats

Background A new rectal cooling device for therapeutic hypothermia (TH) therapy is designed and is applied in TH treatment of SD rats with ischemic-hypoxic brain damage. Methods Healthy adult SD rats (n = 45) were randomly assigned into four groups: the healthy control group (n = 5), the ischemia and hypoxia group (n = 10), the rectal TH cooling group (n = 18), and the ice blanket ...

Construction of high-resolution recombination maps in Asian seabass

Background A high-density genetic map is essential for de novo genome assembly, fine mapping QTL for important complex traits, comparative genomic studies and understanding the mechanisms of genome evolution. Although a number of genomic resources are available in Asian seabass (Lates calcarifer), a high-density linkage map is still lacking. To facilitate QTL mapping for ...

Effects of Waterlogging on Leaf Mesophyll Cell Ultrastructure and Photosynthetic Characteristics of Summer Maize

A field experiment was performed to study the effects of waterlogging on the leaf mesophyll cell ultrastructure, chlorophyll content, gas exchange parameters, chlorophyll fluorescence, and malondialdehyde (MDA) content of summer maize (Zea mays L.) hybrids Denghai605 (DH605) and Zhengdan958 (ZD958). The waterlogging treatments were implemented for different durations (3 and 6 days) ...

A giant infiltrating angiolipoma of the mediastinum: a case report

Background Angiolipoma is a rare benign neoplasm composed of mature fatty tissue and multiple small abnormal blood vessels. Infiltrating mediastinal angiolipoma is an extremely rare tumor associated with delayed diagnosis. Case presentation A 42-year-old woman was presented with 3-month history of mild chest tightness. Imaging of the chest showed a large mass with fat densities in ...

Proteomic analysis of maize grain development using iTRAQ reveals temporal programs of diverse metabolic processes

Background Grain development in maize is an essential process in the plant’s life cycle and is vital for use of the plant as a crop for animals and humans. However, little is known regarding the protein regulatory networks that control grain development. Here, isobaric tag for relative and absolute quantification (iTRAQ) technology was used to analyze temporal changes in protein ...

A novel insulator by holographic Q-lattices

We construct a bulk geometry with Q-lattice structure, which is implemented by two gauge fields and a coupling between the lattice and the Maxwell field. This gravity dual model can describe a novel insulator which exhibits some key features analogous to Mott insulator. In particular, a hard gap in insulating phase as well as vanishing DC conductivity can be simultaneously ...

Visual representation and characterization of three-dimensional hydrofracturing cracks within heterogeneous rock through 3D printing and transparent models

The heterogeneity of unconventional reservoir rock tremendously affects its hydrofracturing behavior. A visual representation and accurate characterization of the three-dimensional (3D) growth and distribution of hydrofracturing cracks within heterogeneous rocks is of particular use to the design and implementation of hydrofracturing stimulation of unconventional reservoirs. ...

Different clinical characteristics and treatment strategies for patients with localized sinonasal diffuse large B cell lymphoma and extranodal NK/T cell lymphoma

The difference in clinical features and treatment outcomes between localized sinonasal diffuse large B cell lymphoma (SN-DLBCL) and sinonasal extranodal NK/T cell lymphoma (SN-ENKTL) is unclear. Therefore, we analyzed a total of 47 patients with localized SN-DLBCL and 211 patients with localized SN-ENKTL. The age distribution for these two subtypes is very distinct and the B ...
