Citrus oils are used as good carrier oil for emulsion fabrication due to their special flavor and various health-promoting functions. In this study, the effects of preheating temperature (30, 40, 50, 60, and 70 oC) and storage temperature (4, 25 and 37 oC) on aroma profiles and physical properties of three citrus-oil (i.e. mandarin, sweet orange and bergamot oils) emulsions were systematically investigated for the first time. The results demonstrated the significant impact of temperature on aroma profile and physical properties...

Semiconducting quantum dots (QDs) are finding a wide range of biomedical applications due to their intense fluorescence brightness and long-term photostability. Here, we report precise quantification of the fluorescence intensity of single QDs on a laboratory-built high-sensitivity flow cytometer (HSFCM). The nearly uniform illumination of the particles at the intense portions of the radiation field resulted in narrowly distributed signals with high signal-to-noise ratios. By analyzing thousands of QDs individually in as little time as 1 min, intrinsic polydispersity was quickly revealed in a statistically robust manner...

We report the successful synthesis of Mo doped Ni2P nanowires (NWs) on a Ni foam (NF) substrate by a two-step strategy, which could be used as an efficient and stable hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) electrocatalyst over the whole pH range (0-14). Electrochemical investigations demonstrated that Mo doping made the catalytic activity of Ni2P significantly enhanced. To achieve a current density of 10 mA cm(-2), Mo-Ni2P NWs/NF required an overpotential of 67 mV in acidic solution, 78 mV in alkaline solution and 84 mV in neutral solution...

A unique case of accidental hanging due to compression of the neck of an adult by the branches of a coffee tree is reported. The decedent was a 42-year-old male who was found dead in a semi prone position on a slope. His neck was lodged in a wedge formed by two branches of a coffee tree, with his legs angled downwards on the slope. Autopsy revealed two friction abrasions located horizontally on either side of the front of the neck, just above the larynx. The findings were compatible with compression of the neck by the branches of the tree, with the body weight of the decedent contributing to compression...

REVIEW
Ran Wei, Janet Pik Ching Wong, Hang Fai Kwok
Osteopontin (OPN), a multifunctional protein, has emerged as a potentially valuable biomarker for diagnosing and treating cancers. Recent research focuses on its involvement in tumor biology including the cell proliferation, survival, angiogenesis, invasion, and metastasis. Understanding the molecular mechanisms and pharmacological effects of OPN in cancer development could lead to new targets for improving cancer diagnosis and treatment. This review explains how the structurally conserved domains of OPN are associated with OPN signaling mediators and CD44, and how the conserved OPN domains determine biological functions...

Nanoindentations of monocrystalline silicon are conducted to investigate the phase transformation process at a temperature range from 292 K to 210 K. The load-displacement curves are obtained and the residual indents are detected by Raman spectra. MD simulations are also conducted to identify the phase state during nanoindentation. The results show that the low temperature has no influence on the generation of Si-II during loading process of indentation, but the phenomenon of pop-out is inhibited with the temperature decreasing...

Dysregulation of autophagy-mediated podocyte homeostasis is proposed to play a role in idiopathic membranous nephropathy (IMN). In the present study, autophagic activity and lysosomal alterations were investigated in podocytes of IMN patients and in cultured podocytes exposed to sublytic terminal complement complex, C5b-9. C5b-9 upregulated the number of LC3 positive puncta and the expression of p62 in patient podocytes and in C5b-9 injuried podocyte model. The lysosomal turnover of LC3-II was not influenced, although the BECN1 expression level was upregulated after exposure of podocytes to C5b-9...

Campylobacter and Salmonella are leading causes of bacterial gastroenteritis in the United States and are estimated to cause >1 million episodes of domestically acquired illness annually (1). Campylobacter and Salmonella are primarily transmitted through contaminated food, but animal-to-human and human-to-human transmission can also occur (2,3). Although occupationally acquired infections have been reported, occupational risk factors have rarely been studied. In 2015, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) identified 63 suspected or confirmed cases of Campylobacter infection over 3...

The recently developed magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) proton density fat fraction (PDFF) allows measurement of the fat in all segments of hepatic tissue. However, it is time consuming and inconvenient to measure each segment repeatedly. Moreover, volume of each segment also should be adjusted with arithmetic mean of the selected segments when total amount of liver fat is estimated. Therefore, we try to develop a clinically-relevant and applicable method of estimating hepatic fat in PDFF image.A total of 164 adults were enrolled...

Angelman syndrome (AS) is a genetic neurodevelopmental disorder, most commonly caused by deletion or mutation of the maternal allele of the UBE3A gene, with behavioral phenotypes and seizures as key features. Currently no treatment is available, and therapeutics are often ineffective in controlling AS-associated seizures. Previous publications using the Ube3a maternal deletion model have shown behavioral and seizure susceptibility phenotypes, however findings have been variable and merit characterization of electroencephalographic (EEG) activity...

Zika virus (ZIKV) has caused significant outbreaks and epidemics in the Americas recently, raising global concern due to its ability to cause microcephaly and other neurological complications. A stable and efficient infectious clone of ZIKV is urgently needed. However, the instability and toxicity of flavivirus cDNA clones in E. coli hosts has hindered the development of ZIKV infectious clones. Herein, using a novel self-splicing ribozyme-based strategy, we have generated a stable infectious cDNA clone of a contemporary ZIKV strain imported from Venezuela to China in 2016...

Infants with developmental delays must be detected early in their development to minimize the progression of motor and neurological impairments. Our objective is to quantify how sensorized toys in a natural play environment can promote infant-toy physical interactions. We created a hanging elephant toy, equipped with an inertial measurement unit (IMU), a pressure transducer, and multiple feedback sensors, to be a hand-grasping toy. We used a 3 DoF robotic model with inputs from the IMU to calculate multiple kinematic metrics and an equation to calculate haptic metrics from the pressure transducer...
