Three-dimensional imaging of the nucleon and semi-inclusive high-energy reactions

We present a short overview of studies of the transverse-momentum-dependent parton distribution functions of the nucleon. The aim of such studies is to provide three-dimensional imaging of the nucleon and a comprehensive description of semi-inclusive high-energy reactions. By summarizing what we have done in constructing the theoretical framework for inclusive deep inelastic...

Low palaeoelevation of the northern Lhasa terrane during late Eocene: Fossil foraminifera and stable isotope evidence from the Gerze Basin

The Lhasa terrane is a key region for understanding the paleoelevation of the southern Tibetan Plateau after India-Asia collision. The Gerze Basin, located in the northern part of the Lhasa terrane, is a shortening-related basin. We discovered Lagena laevis (Bandy) fossils in upper Eocene strata of the Gerze Basin. This type of foraminifera is associated with lagoon and estuarine...

Inactivation of SmeSyRy Two-Component Regulatory System Inversely Regulates the Expression of SmeYZ and SmeDEF Efflux Pumps in Stenotrophomonas maltophilia

SmeYZ efflux pump is a critical pump responsible for aminoglycosides resistance, virulence-related characteristics (oxidative stress susceptibility, motility, and secreted protease activity), and virulence in Stenotrophomonas maltophilia. However, the regulatory circuit involved in SmeYZ expression is little known. A two-component regulatory system (TCS), smeRySy, transcribed...

The Description of Shale Reservoir Pore Structure Based on Method of Moments Estimation

Shale has been considered as good gas reservoir due to its abundant interior nanoscale pores. Thus, the study of the pore structure of shale is of great significance for the evaluation and development of shale oil and gas. To date, the most widely used approaches for studying the shale pore structure include image analysis, radiation and fluid invasion methods. The detailed pore...

A Riccati-Bernoulli sub-ODE method for nonlinear partial differential equations and its application

The Riccati-Bernoulli sub-ODE method is firstly proposed to construct exact traveling wave solutions, solitary wave solutions, and peaked wave solutions for nonlinear partial differential equations. A Bäcklund transformation of the Riccati-Bernoulli equation is given. By using a traveling wave transformation and the Riccati-Bernoulli equation, nonlinear partial differential...

Diagnosis of Extrapulmonary Legionellosis in Allogeneic Hematopoietic Cell Transplant Recipients by Direct 16S Ribosomal Ribonucleic Acid Sequencing and Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry

Identifying extrapulmonary legionellosis is difficult due to the lack of clinical suspicion and limitations of conventional microbiologic methods. We present a case series of hematopoietic cell transplant recipients with extrapulmonary legionellosis diagnosed via molecular diagnostics: 16S ribosomal ribonucleic acid gene Sanger sequencing and matrix-assisted laser desorption...

Replacing process water and nitrogen sources with biogas slurry during cellulosic ethanol production

Environmental issues, such as the fossil energy crisis, have resulted in increased public attention to use bioethanol as an alternative renewable energy. For ethanol production, water and nutrient consumption has become increasingly important factors being considered by the bioethanol industry as reducing the consumption of these resources would decrease the overall cost of...

Exact solutions and multi-symplectic structure of the generalized KdV-type equation

The homogeneous balance of undetermined coefficients method is proposed to obtain not only exact solutions but also multi-symplectic structure of some nonlinear partial differential equations. Bilinear equation, N-soliton solutions, traveling wave solutions and multi-symplectic structure are obtained by applying the proposed method to the KdV equation. Accordingly, the definition...

MiR-124 inhibits the migration and invasion of human hepatocellular carcinoma cells by suppressing integrin αV expression

Tumor metastasis is the major cause of cancer-related death especially in human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Although microRNAs have been implicated in tumor development, the roles of miR-124 in HCC metastasis are still not well understood. We conducted functional analysis in this study to investigate miR-124. We observed that miR-124 significantly retarded the wound healing...

Very Early Colorectal Anastomotic Leakage within 5 Post-operative Days: a More Severe Subtype Needs Relaparatomy

Early anastomotic leakage (AL), usually defined as leakage within 30 post-operative days, represents a severe entity. However, mounting evidence has indicated that majorities of leakage occur within one week after surgery, making late AL rarity. Here we analyzed 101 consecutive colorectal AL, all of which occurred within 30 post-operative days, during Jan 2013 and Dec 2015 in...

Recombinant Adeno-Associated Virus-Mediated Expression of Methamphetamine Antibody Attenuates Methamphetamine-Induced Hyperactivity in Mice

Methamphetamine (Meth) is one of the most frequently abused drugs worldwide. Recent studies have indicated that antibodies with high affinity for Meth reduce its pharmacological effects. The purpose of this study was to develop a technique for virus-based passive immunization against Meth effects. We generated a recombinant adeno-associated virus serotype-8 vector (AAV-MethAb...

Diagnostic Value of Autoantibodies against Ezrin in Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC), one of the most common malignancies worldwide, is a highly aggressive and homogeneous entity occurring in esophageal squamous epithelium, and a reliable noninvasive test for early detection is needed. A recent study showed that serum autoantibodies against Ezrin could be detected in patients with pancreatic cancer. Here, we assessed...

Morphogenetic Studies of the Drosophila DA1 Ventral Olfactory Projection Neuron

In the Drosophila olfactory system, odorant information is sensed by olfactory sensory neurons and relayed from the primary olfactory center, the antennal lobe (AL), to higher olfactory centers via olfactory projection neurons (PNs). A major portion of the AL is constituted with dendrites of four groups of PNs, anterodorsal PNs (adPNs), lateral PNs (lPNs), lateroventral PNs...

The Design of a Modified PSO Guidance Law Using Predictor and LOS Rate Evaluation

This paper proposes a modified particle swarm optimization guidance (MPSOG) for the pursuit-evasion optimization problem. If the line-of-sight (LOS) rate equals zero, the curvature of the missile’s trajectory would be smaller and the probability of intercept greater. Thus, we propose using a MPSOG to improve the guidance performance. The MPSOG uses a Kalman filter to predict a...

The SLC6A3 gene possibly affects susceptibility to late-onset alcohol dependence but not specific personality traits in a Han Chinese population

Dopaminergic dysfunction has an important role in the pathoetiology of alcohol dependence (AD). The purpose of this study was to determine whether the solute carrier family 6 member 3 (SLC6A3) gene (also known as the dopamine transporter DAT gene) was associated with AD, and whether variants in the SLC6A3 locus were associated with specific personality traits in patients with AD...
