Fluorescent Nano-Biomass Dots: Ultrasonic-Assisted Extraction and Their Application as Nanoprobe for Fe3+ detection

Biomass as sustainable and renewable resource has been one of the important energy sources for human life. Herein, luminescent nano-biomass dots (NBDs) have been extracted from soybean through ultrasonic method, which endows biomass with fluorescence property. The as-prepared NBDs are amorphous in structure with an average diameter of 2.4 nm and show bright blue fluorescence with...

Cartilage progenitor cells combined with PHBV in cartilage tissue engineering

Bone marrow-derived stem cells (BMSCs) and chondrocytes have been reported to present “dedifferentiation” and “phenotypic loss” during the chondrogenic differentiation process in cartilage tissue engineering, and cartilage progenitor cells (CPCs) are novel seeding cells for cartilage tissue engineering. In our previous study, cartilage progenitor cells from different subtypes of...

Human acellular amniotic membrane implantation for lower third nasal reconstruction: a promising therapy to promote wound healing

BackgroundThe lower third of the nose is one of the most important cosmetic units of the face, and its reconstructive techniques remain a big challenge. As an alternative approach to repair or regenerate the nasal tissue, the biomaterial-based strategy has been extensively investigated. The aim of this study is to determine the safety and efficacy of human acellular amniotic...

PCV2 replication promoted by oxidative stress is dependent on the regulation of autophagy on apoptosis

Porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) is an economically important swine pathogen but some extra trigger factors are required for the development of PCV2-associated diseases. By evaluating cap protein expression, viral DNA copies and the number of infected cells, the present study further confirmed that oxidative stress can promote PCV2 replication. The results showed that oxidative...

Achromatic linear polarization rotators by tandem twisted nematic liquid crystal cells

An achromatic linear polarization rotator based on a tandem-2ϕ-twisted nematic liquid crystal cell (tandem-2ϕ-TNLC cell, where 2ϕ represents the total twisted angle) is theoretically analyzed and experimentally demonstrated. The tandem-2ϕ-TNLC cell comprises two conventional ϕ-TNLC cells with the required arrangement that the LC director close to the last layer of the first...

2-D DOA tracking using variational sparse Bayesian learning embedded with Kalman filter

In this paper, we consider the 2-D direction-of-arrival (DOA) tracking problem. The signals are captured by a uniform spherical array and therefore can be analyzed in the spherical harmonics domain. Exploiting the sparsity of source DOAs in the whole angular region, we propose a novel DOA tracking method to estimate the source locations and trace their trajectories by using the...

YKL-40 is highly expressed in the epicardial adipose tissue of patients with atrial fibrillation and associated with atrial fibrosis

YKL-40 (CHI3L1) is a novel biomarker for inflammation, tissue remodeling, and fibrosis, as well as cardiovascular diseases. We investigated the association between YKL-40 expression in epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) and atrial fibrosis in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Blood samples, subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT), paracardial adipose tissue (PAT), EAT, and adjacent...

Recent advances in solid polymer electrolytes for lithium batteries

Solid polymer electrolytes are light-weight, flexible, and non-flammable and provide a feasible solution to the safety issues facing lithium-ion batteries through the replacement of organic liquid electrolytes. Substantial research efforts have been devoted to achieving the next generation of solid-state polymer lithium batteries. Herein, we provide a review of the development of...

Wildfire Susceptibility Assessment in Southern China: A Comparison of Multiple Methods

Wildfire is a primary forest disturbance. A better understanding of wildfire susceptibility and its dominant influencing factors is crucial for regional wildfire risk management. This study performed a wildfire susceptibility assessment using multiple methods, including logistic regression, probit regression, an artificial neural network, and a random forest (RF) algorithm...

Characteristics and survival outcomes related to the infra-pyloric lymph node status of gastric cancer patients

To study metastasis to the infra-pyloric (no. 6) lymph nodes and their subgroups and the related risk factors of gastric cancer patients. Gastric cancer patients who underwent gastrectomy with complete postoperative pathological information on the no. 6 lymph node station and its subgroups from January 1, 2008, to December 31, 2011, were included.

A dynamic simulation of the wheel–rail impact caused by a wheel flat using a 3-D rolling contact model

A three-dimensional (3-D) wheel-rail rolling contact model with a wheel flat was built using commercial software Hypermesh, and the dynamic finite element simulation was conducted using LS-DYNA 3D/explicit code. Influences of the train speed, flat length and axle load on the vertical wheel-rail impact response were discussed, respectively. The results show that the maximum...
