Characterization and comparison of gut microbiomes in nine species of parrots in captivity

Gut microbiomes have profound effects on the health of hosts. About 28% of extant parrot species are threatened with extinction. To inform conservation efforts, we characterized and compared the gut microbiomes in nine species of parrots in captivity. The core gut microbiome of parrots was dominated by three bacterial phyla: the Firmicutes, Proteobacteria, and Actinobacteria...

Fair and Equitable Treatment of Foreign Investors in an Era of Sustainable Development

The long-existing debate surrounding the environmental impacts of investment liberalism has been intensified by the rapid growth of an international investment regime, which now consists of more than 3,000 international investment agreements (“IIAs”) and more than 700 investor-state arbitration cases. Many scholars, states, and non-governmental organizations (“NGOs”) fear this...

Overexpression of apelin in Wharton’ jelly mesenchymal stem cell reverses insulin resistance and promotes pancreatic β cell proliferation in type 2 diabetic rats

BackgroundApelin plays a key beneficial role in energy metabolism by increasing glucose uptake and insulin sensitivity; however, apelin has a short half-life because it is rapidly cleared from the circulation limiting its therapeutic benefit. The aim of this study is to create a new approach to treat type 2 diabetes by inducing prolonged expression of apelin in Wharton’s jelly...

Strain-Tunable Electronic Properties and Band Alignments in GaTe/C2N Heterostructure: a First-Principles Calculation

Recently, GaTe and C2N monolayers have been successfully synthesized and show fascinating electronic and optical properties. Such hybrid of GaTe with C2N may induce new novel physical properties. In this work, we perform ab initio simulations on the structural, electronic, and optical properties of the GaTe/C2N van der Waals (vdW) heterostructure. Our calculations show that the...

Effects of humic substances on Fe(II) sorption onto aluminum oxide and clay

We studied the effects of humic substances (HS) on the sorption of Fe(II) onto Al-oxide and clay sorbents at pH 7.5 with a combination of batch kinetic experiments and synchrotron Fe K-edge EXAFS analyses. Fe(II) sorption was monitored over the course of 4 months in anoxic clay and Al-oxide suspensions amended with variable HS types (humic acid, HA; or fulvic acid, FA) and levels...

Financial burden of healthcare for cancer patients with social medical insurance: a multi-centered study in urban China

Cancer accounts for one-fifth of the total deaths in China and brings heavy financial burden to patients and their families. Chinese government has made strong commitment to develop three types of social medical insurance since 1997 and recently, more attempts were invested to provide better financial protection. To analyze health services utilization and financial burden of...
