Isolation, purification, structural analysis and coagulatory activity of water-soluble polysaccharides from Ligustrum lucidum Ait flowers

In this study, Ligustrum lucidum flowers as raw material, the extraction, isolation and coagulatory activity of polysaccharides were carried out for the first time. The crude polysaccharide was obtained by hot water extraction and ethanol precipitation, and preliminarily purified by Sevage method and D101 macroporous resin. Then the polysaccharide was further purified by DEAE-52 ...

Nuclear suppression of the \(\phi \) meson yields with large \(p_T\) at the RHIC and the LHC

We calculate \(\phi \) meson transverse momentum spectra in \(\mathrm{p}+\mathrm{p}\) collisions as well as their nuclear suppressions in central \(\mathrm{A}+\mathrm{A}\) collisions both at the RHIC and the LHC in LO and NLO with the QCD-improved parton model. We have included the parton energy loss effect in a hot/dense QCD medium with the effectively medium-modified \(\phi \) ...

Nucleolar and spindle associated protein 1 promotes the aggressiveness of astrocytoma by activating the Hedgehog signaling pathway

The prognosis of human astrocytoma is poor, and the molecular alterations underlying its pathogenesis still needed to be elucidated. Nucleolar and spindle associated protein 1 (NUSAP1) was observed in several types of cancers, but its role in astrocytoma remained unknown. The expression of NUSAP1 in astrocytoma cell lines and tissues were measured with western blotting and ...

Visible Light-Driven Photocatalytic Performance of N-Doped ZnO/g-C3N4 Nanocomposites

N-doped ZnO/g-C3N4 composites have been successfully prepared via a facile and cost-effective sol-gel method. The nanocomposites were systematically characterized by XRD, FE-SEM, HRTEM, FT-IR, XPS, and UV-vis DRS. The results indicated that compared with the pure N-doped ZnO, the absorption edge of binary N-doped ZnO/g-C3N4 shifted to a lower energy with increasing the ...

A new two-stage method for revealing missing parts of edges in protein-protein interaction networks

With the increasing availability of high-throughput data, various computational methods have recently been developed for understanding the cell through protein-protein interaction (PPI) networks at a systems level. However, due to the incompleteness of the original PPI networks those efforts have been significantly hindered. In this paper, we propose a two stage method to predict ...

De novo transcriptome of the mayfly Cloeon viridulum and transcriptional signatures of Prometabola

Mayflies (Ephemeroptera) display many primitive characters and a unique type of metamorphosis (Prometabola). However, information on the genomes and transcriptomes of this insect group is limited. The RNA sequencing study presented here generated the first de novo transcriptome assembly of Cloeon viridulum (Ephemeroptera: Baetidae), and compared gene expression signatures among the ...

Soybean aphid, Aphis glycines (Hemiptera: Aphididae), developmental and reproductive capacity on white clover, Trifolium repens (Rosales: Leguminosae), in northeast China

Nymphs of Aphis glycines Matsumura were individually reared to adults in the laboratory on detached leaf discs of Trifolium repens L. (white clover) mounted on agar medium. Adults of A. glycines were fed T. repens within small clip cages in the field. Development, reproduction and intrinsic rates of increase of A. glycines were studied. These data were compared to those of controls ...

RIG-I overexpression decreases mortality of cigarette smoke exposed mice during influenza A virus infection

Retinoic acid-inducible gene I (RIG-I) is an important regulator of virus-induced antiviral interferons (IFNs) and proinflammatory cytokines which participate in clearing viral infections. Cigarette smoke (CS) exposure increases the frequency and severity of respiratory tract infections. We generated a RIG-I transgenic (TG) mouse strain that expresses the RIG-I gene product under ...

Differential immune responses of Monochamus alternatus against symbiotic and entomopathogenic fungi

Monochamus alternatus, the main vector beetles of invasive pinewood nematode, has established a symbiotic relationship with a native ectotrophic fungal symbiont, Sporothrix sp. 1, in China. The immune response of M. alternatus to S. sp. 1 in the coexistence of beetles and fungi is, however, unknown. Here, we report that immune responses of M. alternatus pupae to infection caused by ...

Some new inequalities for continuous fusion frames and fusion pairs

This paper addresses continuous fusion frames and fusion pairs which are extensions of discrete fusion frames and continuous frames. The study of equalities and inequalities for various frames has seen great achievements. In this paper, using operator methods we establish some new inequalities for continuous fusion frames and fusion pairs. Our results extend and improve ones ...

Use of community mobile phone big location data to recognize unusual patterns close to a pipeline which may indicate unauthorized activities and possible risk of damage

Damage caused by people and organizations unconnected with the pipeline management is a major risk faced by pipelines, and its consequences can have a huge impact. However, the present measures to monitor this have major problems such as time delays, overlooking threats, and false alarms. To overcome the disadvantages of these methods, analysis of big location data from mobile ...

The distribution of some extremum on the risk process whose income depend on the current reserve

This paper considers the distribution of some extremum on the risk process whose income depend on the current reserve. We first construct the defective renewal sequence and obtain the density function of them. By the presented renewal measure and the strong Markov property, the distribution of the first hitting time is obtained explicitly. Then, the ruin probability and the ...

Applications of variational methods to the impulsive equation with non-separated periodic boundary conditions

In this paper, we study the existence of classical solutions for a second-order impulsive differential equation with non-separated periodic boundary conditions. By using the variational method and critical point theory, we give some new criteria to guarantee that the impulsive problem has at least one solution under some different conditions. Our results extend and improve some ...
