Prevalence and clinical characteristics of hypertension and metabolic syndrome in newly diagnosed patients with ketosis-onset diabetes: a cross-sectional study

To investigate the prevalence and clinical characteristics of hypertension (HTN) and metabolic syndrome (MetS) in newly diagnosed diabetes with ketosis-onset. A cross-sectional study was adopted in 734 newly diagnosed diabetics including 83 type 1 diabetics with positive islet-associated autoantibodies, 279 ketosis-onset diabetics without islet-associated autoantibodies and 372...

Luminescent sensing film based on sulfosalicylic acid modified Tb(III)-doped yttrium hydroxide nanosheets

Sulfosalicylic acid (SSA) was used as an intercalation agent and an excellent antenna to synthesize layered rare-earth hydroxide (LRH) materials and directly obtain SSA-modified terbium-doped ytterbium hydroxide nanosheets by mechanical exfoliation. The crystal structure and morphologies of the LRHs and nanosheets were determined by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy...

Pyrolysis characteristics and thermal kinetics of expanded polystyrene (EPS) and styrene-methyl methacrylate (St-MMA) copolymer in LFC process

The pyrolysis behaviors of foam patterns have critical influences on fluid morphology and defect formation in Lost Foam Casting (LFC). The pyrolysis behaviors of expanded polystyrene (EPS) and styrenemethyl methacrylate (St-MMA) foams were compared using synchronous thermal analysis (STA), which was performed under argon atmosphere at different heating rates (from 10 to 40 K•min...

Shape Modeling Based on Convolutional Restricted Boltzmann Machines

This paper proposes a kind of shape model based on convolutional restricted Boltzmann machines(CRBM), which can be used to assist the task of image target detection and classification. The CRBM is a generative model that can model shapes through the generative capabilities of the model. This paper presents the visual representation, construction process and training method of the...

Ensemble Network Architecture for Deep Reinforcement Learning

The popular deep learning algorithm is known to be instability because of the -value’s shake and overestimation action values under certain conditions. These issues tend to adversely affect their performance. In this paper, we develop the ensemble network architecture for deep reinforcement learning which is based on value function approximation. The temporal ensemble stabilizes...

miR-98-5p contributes to cisplatin resistance in epithelial ovarian cancer by suppressing miR-152 biogenesis via targeting Dicer1

Epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) is a highly lethal gynecological malignancy, and cisplatin resistance is usually correlated with the poor prognosis of EOC. Increasing evidence indicates that the dysregulation of miRNAs is related to chemotherapy sensitivity. In this study, we revealed that miR-98-5p, a member of the let-7 family, was enriched in cisplatin-resistant EOC cells...

Host plants and obligate endosymbionts are not the sources for biosynthesis of the aphid alarm pheromone

(E)-β-farnesene (EβF) is the major component of the alarm pheromone of many aphid species, but where EβF is synthesized in aphids is only partly understood. There are at least three most possible sources for the alarm pheromone: host plants, aphid obligate endosymbiont and aphids themselves. Here we eliminated the possibility of host plants and the obligate endosymbiont Buchnera...

Structural characteristics and membrane interactions of tandem α-synuclein oligomers

Pre-fibrillar oligomers of α-synuclein are thought to be pathogenic molecules leading to neurotoxicity associated with Parkinson’s disease and other neurodegenerative disorders. However, small oligomers are difficult to isolate for study. To gain better insight into the properties of small α-synuclein oligomers, we investigated engineered oligomers of specific size (dimers...

Identification and validation of SRY-box containing gene family member SOX30 methylation as a prognostic and predictive biomarker in myeloid malignancies

BackgroundMethylation-associated SOX family genes have been proved to be involved in multiple essential processes during carcinogenesis and act as potential biomarkers for cancer diagnosis, staging, prediction of prognosis, and monitoring of response to therapy. Herein, we revealed SOX30 methylation and its clinical implication in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and myelodysplastic...

Coherence in Hong Lou Meng and its English translations: an exploratory investigation

Coherence can be studied from both logical and textual perspectives in systemic functional linguistics. The logical and textual metafunctions together contribute to the coherence of a text. Coherence is realized through clause complexes and cohesive chains at the lexicogrammatical level from the logical and textual meanings. Clause complex reflects the logical development of the...

JNSViewer—A JavaScript-based Nucleotide Sequence Viewer for DNA/RNA secondary structures

Many tools are available for visualizing RNA or DNA secondary structures, but there is scarce implementation in JavaScript that provides seamless integration with the increasingly popular web computational platforms. We have developed JNSViewer, a highly interactive web service, which is bundled with several popular tools for DNA/RNA secondary structure prediction and can provide...

Influenza evolution and H3N2 vaccine effectiveness, with application to the 2014/2015 season

Influenza A is a serious disease that causes significant morbidity and mortality, and vaccines against the seasonal influenza disease are of variable effectiveness. In this article, we discuss the use of the pepitope method to predict the dominant influenza strain and the expected vaccine effectiveness in the coming flu season. We illustrate how the effectiveness of the 2014/2015...
