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...

New versions of the Hestenes-Stiefel nonlinear conjugate gradient method based on the secant condition for optimization

Based on the secant condition often satisfied by quasi-Newton methods, two new versions of the Hestenes-Stiefel (HS) nonlinear conjugate gradient method are proposed, which are descent methods even with inexact line searches. The search directions of the proposed methods have the form dk = - θkgk + βkHSdk-1, or dk = -gk + βkHSdk-1+ θkyk-1. When exact line searches are used, the...

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...

Spironolactone alleviates diabetic nephropathy through promoting autophagy in podocytes

PurposePodocytes are terminally differentiated cells lining the Bowman’s capsule. Podocytes are critical for the proper glomerular filtration barrier function. At the same time, autophagy is crucial for maintaining podocyte homeostasis and insufficient autophagy could cause podocyte loss and proteinuria that is commonly observed in diabetic nephropathy (DN).MethodsIn this study...

Neural Personalized Ranking via Poisson Factor Model for Item Recommendation

Recommender systems have become indispensable for online services since they alleviate the information overload problem for users. Some work has been proposed to support the personalized recommendation by utilizing collaborative filtering to learn the latent user and item representations from implicit interactions between users and items. However, most of existing methods...

The value of oral contrast ultrasonography in the diagnosis of gastric cancer in elderly patients

This study aims to investigate the value of oral contrast ultrasonography (OCUS) in the diagnosis of gastric cancer in elderly patients. OCUS data obtained from patients ≥ 60 years old were retrospectively analyzed and compared with gastroscopy results. Among the 12,716 subjects examined by OCUS, 5021 subjects were ≥ 60 years old, which accounted for 39.48% (5021/12,716...

Identification of cucumber circular RNAs responsive to salt stress

Circular RNAs (circRNAs) are 3′-5′ head-to-tail covalently closed non-coding RNA that have been proved to play essential roles in many cellular and developmental processes. However, no information relate to cucumber circRNAs is available currently, especially under salt stress condition. In this study, we sequenced circRNAs in cucumber and a total of 2787 were identified, with...

COMT-Val158Met polymorphism modulates antipsychotic effects on auditory verbal hallucinations and temporal lobe gray matter volumes in healthy individuals—symptom relief accompanied by worrisome volume reductions

Investigation of auditory verbal hallucinations (AVHs) in schizophrenics is complicated by psychiatric symptoms. Investigating healthy individuals with AVHs (H-AVHs) can obviate such confounding factors. The objective of this study was to explore the effects of antipsychotic treatment on AVHs and gray matter volumes (GMVs) in H-AVH subjects and whether such are effects are...

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...

Competitive Adsorption between Polyethylene Glycol and Acid Brilliant Red on Expanded Graphite

Expanded graphite (EG) adsorbent was prepared with graphite as raw materials, potassium permanganate as oxidant, and vitriol as intercalation compound. Polyethylene glycol (PEG) 10000 and Acid brilliant red 3B (ABR) with obvious difference in molecular weights were selected as organic adsorbates, and their adsorption and competitive adsorption thermodynamics and kinetics on EG...

Transient receptor potential ankyrin 1 (trpa1) mediates il-1β-induced apoptosis in rat chondrocytes via calcium overload and mitochondrial dysfunction

Chondrocyte apoptosis is a central feature in the progression of osteoarthritis (OA), and would be triggered by sustained elevation of intracellular calcium ion (Ca2+), also known as a cellular second messenger. Transient receptor potential ankyrin 1 (TRPA1) is a membrane-associated cation channel, and the activation of which causes an influx of cation ions, in particularly Ca2...
