Zhengguo Li, Zhe Wei, Changyun Wen, Jinghong Zheng
Multi-scale exposure fusion is an effective image enhancement technique for a high dynamic range (HDR) scene. In this paper, a new multi-scale exposure fusion algorithm is proposed to merge differently exposed low dynamic range (LDR) images by using the weighted guided image filter (WGIF) to smooth the Gaussian pyramids of weight maps for all the LDR images. Details in the brightest and darkest regions of the HDR scene are preserved better by the proposed algorithm without relative brightness change in the fused image...

Swine wastewater is one of the most serious pollution sources, and it has attracted a great public concern in China. Anaerobic digestion technology is extensively used in swine wastewater treatment. However, the anaerobic digestion effluents are difficult to meet the discharge standard. The results from batch experiments showed that plenty of refractory organic matter remained in the effluents after mesophilic anaerobic digestion for 30 days. The effluent total COD (tCOD) and soluble COD (sCOD) were 483 and 324 mg/L, respectively, with the sCOD/tCOD ratio of 0...

The enhanced luminescence through semiconductor-metal interactions suggests the great potential of device performance improvement via properly tailored plasmonic nanostructures. Surface plasmon enhanced electroluminescence in all-inorganic CsPbBr3 perovskite light-emitting diode (LED) is fabricated by decorating the hole transport layer with the synthesized Ag nanorods. An increase of 42% and 43.3% in the luminance and efficiency are demonstrated for devices incorporated with Ag nanorods. The device with Ag introduction indicates identical optoelectronic properties to the controlled device without Ag nanostructures...

Centrosome cohesion, mostly regarded as a proteinaceous linker between parental centrioles, ensures the interphase centrosome(s) to function as a single microtubule-organizing center. Maintenance of centrosome cohesion counts on a number of centrosomal linker proteins because depletion of any of those leads to premature centrosome separation in interphase, termed centrosome splitting. However, the underlying mechanisms of the dependence are unknown. Here, we show that absence of Rootletin triggers the von Hippel-Lindau tumour suppressor protein (VHL)-mediated proteasomal degradation of Cep68 and, in turn, results in centrosome splitting...

Bartonella species are emerging human pathogens. Bats are known to carry diverse Bartonella species, some of which are capable of infecting humans. However, as the second largest mammalian group by a number of species, the role of bats as the reservoirs of Bartonella species is not fully explored, in term of their species diversity and worldwide distribution. China, especially Northern China, harbors a number of endemic insectivorous bat species; however, to our knowledge, there are not yet studies about Bartonella in bats in China...

GATA zinc finger domain-containing 2B (GATAD2B) is a subunit of the methyl-CpG-binding protein-1 complex (MECP1), which deacetylates methylated nucleosomes and regresses transcriptional activity. Recently, GATAD2B has been elucidated as a candidate gene in patients with intellectual disability (ID). In this study, we identified two novel heterozygous frameshift mutations of GATAD2B in two unrelated ID cases through next-generation sequencing (NGS). Both of the mutations c.80_81insGATGT and c.552_555delGAAA cause truncated proteins that might be detrimental to neurodevelopment...

One-dimensional spin chains featuring strong axial anisotropic magnetism are promising candidates for isolatable and miniatured information storage materials, the so-called single-chain magnets (SCMs). Here we show a mixed azido/carboxylato bridged metamagnetic iron(ii) chain [Fe(N3)2(4-mpc)]n (4-mpc = N-methylpyridinium-4-carboxylate) with a large energy barrier of 150 K, a large remnant magnetization (1.55Nβ) and coercivity (1.7 T at 2 K) for homo-spin SCMs. Heat capacity and Mössbauer spectroscopy studies corroborate the intrinsic nature of SCM behavior regardless of weak interchain magnetic interactions, which lead to the coexistence of metamagnetism but not long-range magnetic ordering...

INTRODUCTION: Hip fracture in the elderly can induce systemic inflammatory response (SIRS) and lung injury which increases the risk of lung infection and death. Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) plays a role in SIRS and lung injury in patients with multi-trauma, and also in patients with hip fractures. This study evaluated the potential value of plasma mtDNA in the early prognosis of lung injury in elderly fracture patients. METHODS: This study enrolled 156 elderly patients with intertrochanteric fracture...
