Infection pattern and negative effects of a facultative endosymbiont on its insect host are environment-dependent

Regiella insecticola is a bacterial endosymbiont in insects that exhibits a negative effect on the fitness of hosts. Thus, it is not clear why this costly endosymbiont can persist in host populations. Here, we tested a hypothesis that the infection pattern and negative roles of the endosymbiont were not constant but environmentally dependent. The grain aphids Sitobion avenae...

Two new copper(II) complexes of 1-Butyl-1H-1,2,4-triazole: synthesis, characterization and electrocatalytic activity

Two new copper(II) complexes, [Cu4Cl6O(C6H11 N3)4] (1) and [CuBr2(C6H11N3)4] (2), were synthesized and characterized by single crystal X-ray diffractometry, IR spectroscopy and elemental analysis. They were used as bulk modifiers for the fabrication of two carbon paste electrodes (Cu-CPE): 1-CPE and 2-CPE. They had similar electrochemical behaviors characterized by cyclic...

Research on Linkage and Path Selection of College Students’ Physical Health Quality Improvement System

Background: The status of college students’ physical health in China is not optimistic. The specific conditions, influencing factors, related obstacles and promotion mechanism of college students’ physical health quality have yet to be discriminated.Purpose: This study was from the perspective of system linkage of “sports management and student management”, focused on the...

Dosimetric predictors of temporal lobe injury after intensity-modulated radiotherapy for T4 nasopharyngeal carcinoma: a competing risk study

In patients with T4 nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), death may occur prior to the occurrence of temporal lobe injury (TLI). Because such competing risk death precludes the occurrence of TLI and thus the competing risk analysis should be applied to TLI research. The aim was to investigate the incidence and predictive factors of TLI after intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT...

Exosome-mediated secretion of LOXL4 promotes hepatocellular carcinoma cell invasion and metastasis

Lysyl oxidase-like 4 (LOXL4) has been found to be dysregulated in several human malignancies, including hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, the role of LOXL4 in HCC progression remains largely unclear. In this study, we investigated the clinical significance and biological involvement of LOXL4 in the progression of HCC. LOXL4 expression was measured in HCC tissues and cell...

A Novel Integrative Processing Technology for the Preparation of Rehmanniae Radix Slices

The traditional processing method for the slices preparation of Rehmanniae roots is time- and energy-consuming and is prone to result in loss of active components during twice water-treatment (once for wash and the other for softening) and drying steps. In this study, we firstly explored an integrative processing technique for Rehmanniae Radix by 2x3 factorial experiment based on...

A distinct isoform of ZNF207 controls self-renewal and pluripotency of human embryonic stem cells

Self-renewal and pluripotency in human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) depends upon the function of a remarkably small number of master transcription factors (TFs) that include OCT4, SOX2, and NANOG. Endogenous factors that regulate and maintain the expression of master TFs in hESCs remain largely unknown and/or uncharacterized. Here, we use a genome-wide, proteomics approach to...

Highly efficient base editing in bacteria using a Cas9-cytidine deaminase fusion

The ability to precisely edit individual bases of bacterial genomes would accelerate the investigation of the function of genes. Here we utilized a nickase Cas9-cytidine deaminase fusion protein to direct the conversion of cytosine to thymine within prokaryotic cells, resulting in high mutagenesis frequencies in Escherichia coli and Brucella melitensis. Our study suggests that...

A New Nonsmooth Bundle-Type Approach for a Class of Functional Equations in Hilbert Spaces

A new bundle-type approach for solving a class of functional equations is presented by combining bundle idea for nonsmooth optimization with common iterative process for functional equations. Our strategy is to approximate the nonsmooth function in functional equation by a sequence of convex piecewise linear functions, as in the bundle method; this makes the problem more...
