Examination of the temporal and spatial dynamics of the gut microbiome in newborn piglets reveals distinct microbial communities in six intestinal segments

Intestinal microbiota plays a crucial role in immune development and disease progression in mammals from birth onwards. The gastrointestinal tract of newborn mammals is rapidly colonized by microbes with tremendous biomass and diversity. Understanding how this complex of segmental communities evolves in different gastrointestinal sites over time has great biological significance...

Optimal Sensor Placement for Inverse Finite Element Reconstruction of Three-Dimensional Frame Deformation

The inverse finite element method (iFEM) for the 3D framework deformation reconstruction was introduced. As the process of iFEM did not require a priori knowledge, such as the modal shape, the loading, and the elastic-inertial material information of the structure, it presented high potential in the framework deformation reconstruction. With the current research, it was observed...

Preparation and Antibiofilm Properties of Zinc Oxide/Porous Anodic Alumina Composite Films

The PAA (porous anodic alumina) films were prepared by two-step anodic oxidation after different times, and then the ZnO/PAA composite films were prepared by sol-gel method on their surface. Meanwhile, the ZnO/PAA composite films were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), thermogravimetric/differential thermal analyzer (TG/DTA), Fourier transform infrared spectrometer (FT-IR...

Active Surface Compensation for Large Radio Telescope Antennas

With the development of radio telescope antennas with large apertures, high gain, and wide frequency bands, compensation methods, such as mechanical or electronic compensation, are obviously essential to ensure the electrical performance of antennas that work in complex environments. Since traditional compensation methods can only adjust antenna pointing but not the surface...

Ischemic Injury-Induced CaMKIIδ and CaMKIIγ Confer Neuroprotection Through the NF-κB Signaling Pathway

Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaMKII) has long been implicated in neuronal injury caused by acute ischemia/reperfusion (I/R). However, its precise role and regulatory mechanisms remain obscure. Here, we investigated the role of the CaMKII family in neuronal survival during I/R. Our data indicated that CAMK2D/CaMKIIδ and CAMK2G/CaMKIIγ were selectively upregulated...

Damage Identification Investigation of Retaining Wall Structures Based on a Virtual Impulse Response Function

To eliminate the influence of excitation on the wavelet packet frequency band energy spectrum (ES), ES is acquired via wavelet packet decomposition of a virtual impulse response function. Based on ES, a character frequency band vector spectrum and damage eigenvector spectrum (DES) are created. Additionally, two damage identification indexes, the energy ratio standard deviation...

Chemical Profile and Antioxidant Activity of the Oil from Peony Seeds (Paeonia suffruticosa Andr.)

Peony seed oil (PSO) is a novel vegetable oil developed from the seeds of Paeonia suffruticosa Andr. The present study aimed to make an overall investigation on the chemical profile and antioxidant activities of PSO for reasonable development and utilization of this new resource food. Chemical analysis revealed that PSO was characterized by an uncommon high portion of α-linolenic...
