Common variants in the SLC28A2 gene are associated with serum uric acid level and hyperuricemia and gout in Han Chinese

BackgroundSerum uric acid (SUA), hyperuricemia (HUA) and gout are complex traits with relatively high heritability. This study aims to identify whether a candidate gene, SLC28A2, exerts susceptibility for SUA fluctuation and incidence of HUA and gout in the Han Chinese population.ResultsThree sample sets of 1376 gout patients, 1290 long-term HUA subjects (no gout attack) and 1349...

The mechanical behaviours of the Ti-10V-2Fe-3Al alloy under the high-temperature and dynamic loading conditions

In this work, we develop a high-temperature dynamic testing technology for characterizing the properties of Ti-1023 alloy. The modified Hopkinson torsion bar system includes a high-temperature furnace subsystem and a water cooling subsystem. High-temperature dynamic tests of the alloy are performed. The dependence of the yield stress on the temperature and the shear strain rate...

High-Order Numerical Methods for Solving Time Fractional Partial Differential Equations

In this paper we introduce a new numerical method for solving time fractional partial differential equation. The time discretization is based on Diethelm’s method where the Hadamard finite-part integral is approximated by using the piecewise quadratic interpolation polynomials. The space discretization is based on the standard finite element method. The error estimates with the...

Tumor Necrosis Factor-α T-857C (rs1799724) Polymorphism and Risk of Cancers: A Meta-Analysis

Objectives. To investigate the potential association of tumor necrosis factor-α T-857C polymorphism with susceptibility to the five common malignant tumors. Materials and Methods. A comprehensive search of PubMed/Medline, Embase, and Web of Science databases was performed up to November 2015. Pooled odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (95% CIs) were calculated to...

Boundary behaviors of modified Green’s function with respect to the stationary Schrödinger operator and its applications

In this paper, we construct a modified Green’s function with respect to the stationary Schrödinger operator on cones. As applications, we not only obtain the boundary behaviors of generalized harmonic functions but also characterize the geometrical properties of the exceptional sets with respect to the Schrödinger operator.

Seismic damage to schools subjected to Nepal earthquakes, 2015

Schools are the gathering place of the young generation. They are expected to act as a refuge after an earthquake. Even though Nepal has no building supervision system, the quality of school buildings receives necessary attention. During a field study conducted in mid-June, we summarised the seismic damage to 12 schools with various types of structures, including local...

Temperature Effects on the Friction and Wear Behaviors of SiCp/A356 Composite against Semimetallic Materials

Due to the low density and high temperature resistance, the SiCp/A356 composites have great potential for weight reduction and braking performance using the brake disc used in trains and automobiles. But the friction coefficient and braking performance are not stable in the braking process because of temperature rising. In this paper, friction and wear behaviors of SiCp/A356...

Experimental and Simulation Research on the Influence of Stirring Parameters on the Distribution of Particles in Cast SiCp/A356 Composites

Achieving the uniform distribution of reinforcement particles in MMCs is very important for the effect of stirring parameters and the flow action of the melt, which should be known. The effect of stirring parameters on the distribution of SiC particles in SiCp/A356 composites was studied by the experimental and numerical methods in this paper. The experimental results show the...

A replication study of schizophrenia-related rare copy number variations in a Han Southern Chinese population

BackgroundSchizophrenia (SCZ) is a common, complex and severe psychiatric disorder associated with many different genetic and environmental risk factors. Evidence from genetic studies has revealed the role of genome structural variations, specifically copy number variants (CNVs), in the etiology of SCZ. Nevertheless, the occurrence of CNVs and their relation to SCZ has remained...

Cubic Spline Interpolation Reveals Different Evolutionary Trends of Various Species

Instead of being uniform in each branch of the biological evolutionary tree, the speed of evolution, measured in the number of mutations over a fixed number of years, seems to be much faster or much slower than average in some branches of the evolutionary tree. This paper describes an evolutionary trend discovery algorithm that uses cubic spline interpolation for various branches...

Levin’s type boundary behaviors for functions harmonic and admitting certain lower bounds

In this paper, we prove Levin’s type boundary behaviors for functions harmonic and admitting certain lower bounds, which extend Pan, Qiao and Deng’s inequalities for analytic functions in a half-space.

A Novel Approach to Wideband Spectrum Compressive Sensing Based on DST for Frequency Availability in LEO Mobile Satellite Systems

In LEO mobile satellite network, the L/S frequency availability is an essential task for global communication but entails several major technical challenges: high sampling rate required for wideband sensing, limited power and computing resources for processing load, and frequency-selective wireless fading. This paper investigates the issue of frequency availability in LEO mobile...

Sharp geometrical properties of a-rarefied sets via fixed point index for the Schrödinger operator equations

In this paper, we use the theory of fixed point index for the Schrödinger operator equations to obtain a geometrical property of a-rarefied sets at infinity on cones. Meanwhile, we give an example to show that the reverse of this property is not true.
