As a key member of the cytochrome P450 gene superfamily, CYP17 gene encodes 17α-hydroxylase/c17-20 lyase that is critical for directing androgen synthesis. The CYP17 gene has been identified in several species, yet little is known about its distribution and expression profile during goose follicular development. In the present study, we obtained the full-length coding sequence of goose CYP17 (gCYP17) gene for the first time using RACE method. Its sequence alignment and phylogenetic analysis suggested that gCYP17 was highly conserved with those of other birds and consisted of four main functional domains like other species...

On greater than million year timescales, carbon in the ocean-atmosphere-biosphere system is controlled by geologic inputs of CO2 through volcanic and metamorphic degassing. High atmospheric CO2 and warm climates in the Cretaceous have been attributed to enhanced volcanic emissions of CO2 through more rapid spreading at mid-ocean ridges and, in particular, to a global flare-up in continental arc volcanism. Here, we show that global flare-ups in continental arc magmatism also enhance the global flux of nutrients into the ocean through production of windblown ash...

Traditional identification of thrips species based on morphology is difficult, laborious, and especially challenging for immature thrips. To support monitoring and management efforts of thrips as consistent and widespread pests of cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.), a probe-based quantitative PCR (qPCR) assay with crude DNA extraction was developed to allow efficient and specific identification of the primary species of thrips infesting cotton. The assay was applied to identify over 5,000 specimens of thrips (including 3,366 immatures) collected on cotton seedlings from Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia in 2016...

Adverse drug reactions of Danshen injection were majorly manifested as pseudo-allergic reactions. In the present study, salvianolic acid A and a pair of geometric isomers (isosalvianolic acid C and salvianolic acid C) were identified as pseudo-allergic components in Danshen injection by a high expression Mas-related G protein coupled receptor X2 cell membrane chromatography coupled online with high-performance liquid chromatography with electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry. Their pseudo-allergic activities were evaluated by in vitro assay, which were consistent with the retention times on the cell membrane chromatography column...

One of famous Chinese Baijiu, Gujinggong (GJG) that is produced in Anhui province, belongs to the famous Luzhou-aroma type of Baijiu in regards of its unique flavor characteristics. However, its key aroma-impact volatiles have not been clearly characterized. In this study, a total of 60 aroma compounds of GJG were identified by GC-O and GC-MS, and 35 of them were further recognized as important aroma compounds owing to their OAVs≥1 and sensory evaluation. As a result, its aroma profile was successfully simulated by reconstitution of those 35 and other 11 aroma compounds based on their measured concentrations in the GJG...

Geese have the strongest tendency toward broodiness among all poultry. The mechanisms initiating broodiness within the goose hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis (HPGA) are still unclear. Here, we reported the transcriptome differences between laying and initial nesting within the HPGA tissues of geese. We constructed a unigene database based on HPGA tissues and identified 128,148 unigenes, 100% of which have been annotated. By using Digital Gene Expression (DGE) sequencing, we screened 19, 110, 289, and 211 differentially expressed genes (DEGs) in the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, stroma ovarii, and follicles, respectively, between laying and nesting geese...

We report a novel method to freely transform the modes of a perfect optical vortex (POV). By adjusting the scaling factor of the Bessel-Gauss beam at the object plane, the POV mode transformation can be easily controlled from circle to ellipse with a high mode purity. Combined with the modulation of the cone angle of an axicon, the ellipse mode can be freely adjusted along the two orthogonal directions. The properties of the "perfect vortex" are experimentally verified. Moreover, fractional elliptic POVs with versatile modes are presented, where the number and position of the gaps are controllable...

Aqueous solution syntheses have been investigated and widely applied, and these reactions are mostly based on mixing two solutions with different reactants. Here, we report that freezing one solution and melting it in the other solution provides a new interesting strategy to mix chemicals and to significantly change the reaction kinetics and thermodynamics, e.g. a precursor solution containing a certain concentration of AgNO3 was frozen and dropped into a reductive NaBH4 solution at ~ 0°C. The ultra-slow release of reactants successfully suppressed...

CdS quantum dots deposited on carbon nitride (g-C3N4) nanosheets have been synthesized by ultra-low temperature (-60 °C) liquid phase precipitation reactions. The obtained CdS quantum dots were uniformly distributed on the surface of the g-C3N4 nanosheets with an average diameter of 5 nm. Correspondingly, CdS/g-C3N4 exhibits a highly enhanced photocatalytic performance.

We describe the first case of Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) occurring 8 days after the first dose of a 3-dose rabies vaccination series. She had no history of vaccine-related rash or other adverse drug reactions, nor had she received any other drug therapy. The temporal relationship between the development of SJS and the vaccination suggests that the rabies vaccination probably was the causal agent. This case serves as a warning of a distinct cutaneous reaction of rabies vaccination.

Xanthomonas fragariae causes angular leaf spot of strawberry, an important disease in strawberry growing regions worldwide. To better understand how X. fragariae multiplies and moves in strawberry plants, a GFP-labelled strain was constructed and used to monitor the pathogen's presence in leaf, petiole, and crown tissue with fluorescence microscopy following natural and wound inoculation in three strawberry cultivars. Taqman PCR was used to quantify bacterial densities in these same tissues regardless of the presence of GFP signal...

Photochemical solution-phase reactions have been widely applied for the syntheses of nanocrystals. In particular, tuning of the nucleation and growth of solids has been a major area of focus. Here we demonstrate a facile approach to generate atomically dispersed platinum via photochemical reduction of frozen chloroplatinic acid solution using ultraviolet light. Using this iced-photochemical reduction, the aggregation of atoms is prevented, and single atoms are successfully stabilized. The platinum atoms are deposited on various substrates, including mesoporous carbon, graphene, carbon nanotubes, titanium dioxide nanoparticles, and zinc oxide nanowires...

Poultry embryos are easily affected by environmental changings during incubation, thereinto, the temperature modification is the most important one, but the mechanism of temperature effects on bird eggs is not clear. By using RNA-seq, we have previously found that endoplasmic reticulum stress (ERS) may involve in regulating embryonic muscle development of duck under the influence of temperature alteration. To further clarify the role of ERS in the effect, in the present study, we detected the impact of increasing the incubation temperature by 1℃ during embryonic days 10-27 (E10-27) on the development of duck embryos, and investigated the changes in mRNA and protein expression of ERS marker genes and muscle-related genes under the thermal manipulation (TM)...

We investigate the polarization-dependent effects when a circularly polarized Airy beam propagates in an inhomogeneous medium. It shows that there are some interesting polarization-dependent phenomena induced by the spin-orbit coupling: the circularly polarized Airy beam will follow a polarization-dependent trajectory in an inhomogeneous medium, and there are the polarization-dependent self-acceleration of the Airy beam in the linear-index inhomogeneous medium and the polarization-dependent rotation of the Airy beam in the quadratic-index inhomogeneous medium...

In this paper, we study the system identification of multi-input multi-output (MIMO) Hammerstein processes under the typical heavy-tailed noise. To the best of our knowledge, there is no general analytical method to solve this identification problem. Motivated by this, we propose a general identification method to solve this problem based on a Gaussian-Mixture Distribution intelligent optimization algorithm (GMDA). The nonlinear part of Hammerstein process is modeled by a Radial Basis Function (RBF) neural network, and the identification problem is converted to an optimization problem...

One of the main causations of the poor prognosis of pancreatic cancer is the lack of effective chemotherapies. Gemcitabine is a widely used chemotherapeutic drug, but limited therapeutic efficacy is achieved due to chemoresistance. Recent studies demonstrated that the presence of cancer stem cells may lead to the failure of chemotherapy. Moreover, gemcitabine can promote the stemness of pancreatic cancer cells. We detected the alterations in protein phosphorylation and signaling pathways in pancreatic cancer cells after gemcitabine treatment using iTRAQ labeling LC-MS/MS, because it was featured with the advantages of strong separation ability and analysis range...
