The Impact of Egg Nutrient Composition and Its Consumption on Cholesterol Homeostasis

Nutrient deficiencies and excess are involved in many aspects of human health. As a source of essential nutrients, eggs have been used worldwide to support the nutritional needs of human societies. On the other hand, eggs also contain a significant amount of cholesterol, a lipid molecule that has been associated with the development of cardiovascular diseases. Whether the...

Litterfall and litter chemistry change over time in an old-growth temperate forest, northeastern China

• Litterfall and litter chemistry are key factors for the assessment of forest floor properties. A long-term study on litterfall, litter chemistry and forest basal areas was carried out in an old-growth temperate forest, northeastern China.• The objective of this study was to test whether forest floor properties in the old-growth forest remain relatively constant.• Litterfall...

Vitamin D status and epigenetic-based mortality risk score: strong independent and joint prediction of all-cause mortality in a population-based cohort study

BackgroundVitamin D deficiency and insufficiency have been established to be strongly associated with increased overall mortality and deaths from specific aging-related diseases. Recently, an epigenetic “mortality risk score” (MS) based on whole blood DNA methylation at the 10 most prominent mortality-related cytosine-phosphate-guanine (CpG) sites has also been found to be highly...

Robust solutions to box-constrained stochastic linear variational inequality problem

We present a new method for solving the box-constrained stochastic linear variational inequality problem with three special types of uncertainty sets. Most previous methods, such as the expected value and expected residual minimization, need the probability distribution information of the stochastic variables. In contrast, we give the robust reformulation and reformulate the...

Changes in L4/5 Intervertebral Foramen Bony Morphology with Age

The purpose of this study was to explore the morphological changes in L4/5 intervertebral foramen with age using a digital method. The closed boundaries of the intervertebral foramen (IGES) in different sagittal slices (inside, middle and outside) were obtained from Mimics, and then imported to a custom-written program, which provided quantitative distance between the nerve root...

Strategies to enhance the production of pinoresinol and its glucosides by endophytic fungus (Phomopsis sp. XP-8) isolated from Tu-chung bark

To improve the production yield of (+)-pinoresinol (Pin), (+)-pinoresinol monoglucoside (PMG), and (+)-pinoresinol diglucoside (PDG), different methods were conducted, including co-culture with resveratrol-producing Alternaria sp. MG1 spores and addition of Tu-chung in a medium at the start of cultivation, ultrasound treatment (40 kHZ, 10 min) on 5-day culture, and addition of...

Serotonin 5-HT6 receptors affect cognition in a mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease by regulating cilia function

Background Serotonin receptor 5-HT6 is involved in cognition and Alzheimer’s disease (AD) development. However, the mechanism of 5-HT6 in AD pathology is not clear. Methods Since 5-HT6 is almost exclusively expressed in the primary cilia, using immunostaining we examined the number of cilia in the hippocampus of AD animal model APP/PS1 mice. By overexpressing and knocking down 5...

Economic Dispatch Model Based on Time-of-Use Electricity Price for Photovoltaic Systems

Due to the energy storage limitations of photovoltaic systems and the uneven time-of-use of electricity by users and the policies of different time-of-use electricity price, scheduling and dispatching of photovoltaic systems incurs irregular trend of electricity consumption and associated price hikes which influences by supply and demand. To this end, this paper proposes a novel...

Simultaneous determination of brazilin and protosappanin B in Caesalpinia sappan by ionic-liquid dispersive liquid-phase microextraction method combined with HPLC

The conditions of heating, ionic liquid-based ultrasonic-assisted extraction combined with reverse-phase high performance liquid chromatography were optimized to simultaneously isolate and determinate brazilin and protosappanin B in Caesalpinia sappan. Ionic liquids, including [BMIM]Br, [BMIM]BF4, [BMIM]PF6 and [HMIM]PF6, were selected as extraction solvents while methanol...
