2012 Chinese Optics Letters (COL)  
Time-resolved femtosecond coherent anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy (fs-CARS) is utilized to measure the methane/oxygen/nitrogen flame temperature at atmospheric-pressure. The measurements are performed using the CARS signal of N2 with 40-fs laser pulses in the first few picoseconds after the initial in-phase excitation. Flame temperatures at 300 and 1 325 K are measured, the experimental results show good agreements with theoretical ones and present a good repeatability.

Resolving Knudsen Layer by High Order Moment Expansion [article]

Yuwei Fan, Jun Li, Ruo Li, Zhonghua Qiao
2017 arXiv   pre-print
We model the Knudsen layer in Kramers' problem by linearized high order hyperbolic moment system. Due to the hyperbolicity, the boundary conditions of the moment system is properly reduced from the kinetic boundary condition. For Kramers' problem, we give the analytical solutions of moment systems. With the order increasing of the moment model, the solutions are approaching to the solution of the linearized BGK kinetic equation. The velocity profile in the Knudsen layer is captured with

2012 Zhōnghuá Pífūkē Yīxué Zázhì  
Lipofibromatous hamartoma, a rarely occurring nerve hamartoma, can present as an acrochordon, cutaneous cyst or other soft tissue tumor and is usually seen within the first three decades of life. The lesion presents as a slowly growing mass that is largely composed of fat and fibrous tissue with epineural and perineural proliferation. Although such tumors are rare, it is important for physicians to be aware of this disorder and recognize its signs because patients may present with what appears

Here, we present two cases of lipofibromatous hamartomas that presented over the ankle and dorsal foot, respectively, that appeared as simple and benign tumors upon initial inspection. Patients were without symptoms or neurological deficits, and diagnosis was not made until histopathological examination of the biopsied specimens. We also discuss the clinical manifestations, histopathological findings, and the management of lipofibromatous hamartomas.

DNA was extracted from paraffin sections and amplified by polymerase chain reaction to detect the presence and type of human papillomavirus. Results: DNA extraction was successfully performed for 58 lesions. The final diagnoses were condyloma in 41 and seborrheic keratosis in 17. The diagnosis of condyloma rather than seborrheic keratosis was likely in the presence of broad, evenly distributed reticulated acanthosis (p < 0.0001), koilocytosis (p < 0.001), a fascicular arrangement of keratinocytes (p < 0.01), and an absence of horn cysts (p < 0.01). Immunohistochemical staining supported the diagnosis of condyloma when positive for human papillomavirus (p < 0.0001), Ki-67 (p < 0.0001), and p21 (p < 0.0001). Conclusion: A combination of histological and immunohistochemical findings is useful to distinguish condyloma from seborrheic keratosis in the genitofemoral area.

Fan Zhang, Xunxun Xu, Tingting Li, Zhonghua Liu
2013 Marine Drugs  
Voltage-gated sodium channels (VGSCs) play a central role in the generation and propagation of action potentials in excitable neurons and other cells and are targeted by commonly used local anesthetics, antiarrhythmics, and anticonvulsants. They are also common targets of neurotoxins including shellfish toxins. Shellfish toxins are a variety of toxic secondary metabolites produced by prokaryotic cyanobacteria and eukaryotic dinoflagellates in both marine and fresh water systems, which can

Noninvasive Physiologic Assessment of Coronary Stenoses Using Cardiac CT

Lei Xu, Zhonghua Sun, Zhanming Fan
2015 BioMed Research International  
Coronary CT angiography (CCTA) has become an important noninvasive imaging modality in the diagnosis of coronary artery disease (CAD). CCTA enables accurate evaluation of coronary artery stenosis. However, CCTA provides limited information on the physiological significance of stenotic lesions. A noninvasive "one-stop-shop" diagnostic test that can provide both anatomical significance and functional significance of stenotic lesions would be beneficial in the diagnosis and management of CAD.

LCGbase: A Comprehensive Database for Lineage-Based Co-regulated Genes

Dapeng Wang, Yubin Zhang, Zhonghua Fan, Guiming Liu, Jun Yu
2011 Evolutionary Bioinformatics  
Animal genes of different lineages, such as vertebrates and arthropods, are well-organized and blended into dynamic chromosomal structures that represent a primary regulatory mechanism for body development and cellular differentiation. The majority of genes in a genome are actually clustered, which are evolutionarily stable to different extents and biologically meaningful when evaluated among genomes within and across lineages. Until now, many questions concerning gene organization, such as

Here, we provide a user-friendly database-LCGbase (a comprehensive database for lineage-based co-regulated genes)-hosting information on evolutionary dynamics of gene clustering and ordering within animal kingdoms in two different lineages: vertebrates and arthropods. The database is constructed on a web-based Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP framework and effective interactive user-inquiry service. Compared to other gene annotation databases with similar purposes, our database has three comprehensible advantages. First, our database is inclusive, including all high-quality genome assemblies of vertebrates and representative arthropod species. Second, it is human-centric since we map all gene clusters from other genomes in an order of lineage-ranks (such as primates, mammals, warmblooded, and reptiles) onto human genome and start the database from well-defined gene pairs (a minimal cluster where the two adjacent genes are oriented as co-directional, convergent, and divergent pairs) to large gene clusters. Furthermore, users can search for any adjacent genes and their detailed annotations. Third, the database provides flexible parameter definitions, such as the distance of transcription start sites between two adjacent genes, which is extendable to genes that flanking the cluster across species. We also provide useful tools for sequence alignment, gene ontology (GO) annotation, promoter identification, gene expression (co-expression), and evolutionary analysis. This database not only provides a way to define lineage-specific and species-specific gene clusters but also facilitates future studies on gene co-regulation, epigenetic control of gene expression (DNA methylation and histone marks), and chromosomal structures in a context of gene clusters and species evolution. LCGbase is freely available at LCGbase.

2014 PLoS ONE  
This study established a numerical model to investigate the degradation mechanism and behavior of bioabsorbable cardiovascular stents. In order to generate the constitutive degradation material model, the degradation characteristics were characterized with user-defined field variables. The radial strength bench test and analysis were used to verify the material model. In order to validate the numerical degradation model, in vitro bench test and in vivo implantation studies were conducted under

The results showed that six months of degradation had not influenced the thermodynamic properties and mechanical integrity of the stent while the molecular weight of the stents implanted in the in vivo and in vitro models had decreased to 61.8% and 68.5% respectively after six month's implantation. It was also found that the degradation rate, critical locations and changes in diameter of the stents in the numerical model were in good consistency in both in vivo and in vitro studies. It implies that the numerical degradation model could provide useful physical insights and prediction of the stent degradation behavior and evaluate, to some extent, the in-vivo performance of the stent. This model could eventually be used for design and optimization of bioabsorbable stent.

Nan Li, Zhonghua Sun, Fan Jiang
2008 BMC Bioinformatics  
The prediction of protein-protein binding site can provide structural annotation to the protein interaction data from proteomics studies. This is very important for the biological application of the protein interaction data that is increasing rapidly. Moreover, methods for predicting protein interaction sites can also provide crucial information for improving the speed and accuracy of protein docking methods. Results: In this work, we describe a binding site prediction method by designing a new

The residue neighbour profile includes both the sequential and the spatial neighbour residues of an interface residue, which is a more complete description of the physical and chemical characteristics surrounding the interface residue. The concept of core interface is applied in selecting the interface residues for training the SVM models, which is shown to result in better discrimination between the core interface and other residues. The best SVM model trained was tested on a test set of 50 randomly selected proteins. The sensitivity, specificity, and MCC for the prediction of the core interface residues were 60.6%, 53.4%, and 0.243, respectively. Our prediction results on this test set were compared with other three binding site prediction methods and found to perform better. Furthermore, our method was tested on the 101 unbound proteins from the protein-protein interaction benchmark v2.0. The sensitivity, specificity, and MCC of this test were 57.5%, 32.5%, and 0.168, respectively. Conclusion: By improving both the descriptions of the interface residues and their surrounding environment and the training strategy, better SVM models were obtained and shown to outperform previous methods. Our tests on the unbound protein structures suggest further improvement is possible.
