Improved simulation of carbon and water fluxes by assimilating multi-layer soil temperature and moisture into process-based biogeochemical model

BackgroundSoil temperature and moisture are sensitive indicators in soil organic matter decomposition because they control global carbon and water cycles and their potential feedback to climatic variations. Although the Biome-Biogeochemical Cycles (Biome-BGC) model is broadly applied in simulating forest carbon and water fluxes, its single-layer soil module cannot represent...

GPAA1 promotes gastric cancer progression via upregulation of GPI-anchored protein and enhancement of ERBB signalling pathway

Gastric cancer is one of the deadliest malignant tumours, with a high incidence in China, and is regulated by aberrantly overexpressed oncogenes. However, existing therapies are insufficient to meet patients’ needs; thus, the identification of additional therapeutic targets and exploration of the underlying mechanism are urgently needed. GPAA1 is the subunit of the GPI...

Expression of cancer–testis antigens in esophageal cancer and their progress in immunotherapy

PurposeEsophageal cancer is a common disease in China with low survival rate due to no obvious early symptoms and lack of effective screening strategies. Traditional treatments usually do not produce desirable results in patients with advanced esophageal cancer, so immunotherapy which relies on tumor-related antigens is needed to combat low survival rates effectively. Cancer...

Association between gaseous pollutants and emergency ambulance dispatches for asthma in Chengdu, China: a time-stratified case-crossover study

ObjectivesThe association between concentrations of sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), carbon monoxide (CO), ozone (O3), and emergency ambulance dispatches (EADs) for asthma was explored in the central Sichuan Basin of southwestern China for the first time.MethodsEADs for asthma were collected from the Chengdu First-Aid Command Center. Pollutant concentrations were...

Topological evolution of coexpression networks by new gene integration maintains the hierarchical and modular structures in human ancestors

We analyze the global structure and evolution of human gene coexpression networks driven by new gene integration. When the Pearson correlation coefficient is greater than or equal to 0.5, we find that the coexpression network consists of 334 small components and one “giant” connected subnet comprising of 6317 interacting genes. This network shows the properties of power-law...

UAV autonomous path optimization simulation based on radar tracking prediction

In the UAV path planning study, due to the relative movement of multiple targets and the UAV, long-term and large-scale UAV, autonomous tracking has not been achieved. Therefore, aiming at this problem, this paper uses radar to provide a real-time feedback on target position, estimates the later motion state of the target according to its position, and then perform dynamic path...

Classicula sinensis, a new species of basidiomycetous aquatic hyphomycetes from southwest China

Classicula sinensis, isolated from decaying leaves from Mozigou, Chongqing Municipality, China, is described as a new species. The new species is a member of basidiomycetous aquatic hyphomycetes which represent a small proportion of all aquatic hyphomycetes. This species falls within the genus Classicula (Classiculaceae, Pucciniomycotina) and is closely related to C. fluitans...

Comparative transcriptomic profiling of peripheral efferent and afferent nerve fibres at different developmental stages in mice

Peripheral nerve injury impairs motor and sensory function in humans, and its functional recovery largely depends on the axonal outgrowth required for the accurate reinnervation of appropriate targets. To better understand how motor and sensory nerve fibres select their terminal pathways, an unbiased cDNA microarray analysis was conducted to examine differential gene expression...
