Chao-Ton Su,Kun-Huang Chen,Li-Fei Chen,Pa-Chun Wang,Yu-Hsiang Hsiao
Computational and Mathematical Methods in Medicine , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/212498
Abstract: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has become an important public health concern. Polysomnography (PSG) is traditionally considered an established and effective diagnostic tool providing information on the severity of OSA and the degree of sleep fragmentation. However, the numerous steps in the PSG test to diagnose OSA are costly and time consuming. This study aimed to apply the multiclass Mahalanobis-Taguchi system (MMTS) based on anthropometric information and questionnaire data to predict OSA. Implementation results showed that MMTS had an accuracy of 84.38% on the OSA prediction and achieved better performance compared to other approaches such as logistic regression, neural networks, support vector machine, C4.5 decision tree, and rough set. Therefore, MMTS can assist doctors in prediagnosis of OSA before running the PSG test, thereby enabling the more effective use of medical resources.

Abstract: Tien-Hsien Liquid (THL) is a Chinese herbal mixture that has been used worldwide as complementary treatment for cancer patients in the past decade. Recently, THL has been shown to induce apoptosis in various types of solid tumor cells in vitro. However, the underlying molecular mechanisms have not yet been well elucidated. In this study, we explored the effects of THL on acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) NB4 cells, which could be effectively treated by some traditional Chinese remedies containing arsenic trioxide. The results showed THL could induce G2/M arrest and apoptosis in NB4 cells. Accordingly, the decrease of cyclin A and B1 were observed in THL-treated cells. The THL-induced apoptosis was accompanied with caspase-3 activation and decrease of PML-RARα fusion protein. Moreover, DNA methyltransferase 1 and oncogenic signaling pathways such as Akt/mTOR, Stat3 and ERK were also down-regulated by THL. By using ethyl acetate extraction and silica gel chromatography, an active fraction of THL named as EAS5 was isolated. At about 0.5–1% of the dose of THL, EAS5 appeared to have most of THL-induced multiple molecular targeting effects in NB4 cells. Based on the findings of these multi-targeting effects, THL might be regarding as a complementary and alternative therapeutic agent for refractory APL.

A distribution pattern assisted method of transcription factor binding site discovery for both yeast and filamentous fungi  [PDF]

Abstract: Transcription factors (TFs) are the core sentinels of gene regulation functioning by binding to highly specific DNA sequences to activate or repress the recruitment of RNA polymerase. The ability to identify transcription factor binding sites (TFBSs) is necessary to understand gene regulation and infer regulatory networks. Despite the fact that bioinformatics tools have been developed for years to improve computational identification of TFBSs, the accurate prediction still remains changeling as DNA motifs recognized by TFs are typically short and often lack obvious patterns. In this study we introduced a new attribute-motif distribution pattern (MDP) to assist in TFBS prediction. MDP was developed using a TF distribution pattern curve generated by analyzing 25 yeast TFs and 37 of their experimentally validated binding motifs, followed by calculating a scoring value to quantify the reliability of each motif prediction. Finally, MDP was tested using another set of 7 TFs with known binding sites to in silico validate the approach. The method was further tested in a non-yeast system using the filamentous fungus Magnaporthe oryzae transcription factor MoCRZ1. We demonstrate superior prediction reranking results using MDP over the commonly used program MEME and the other four predictors. The data showed significant improvements in the ranking of validated TFBS and provides a more sensitive statistics based approach for motif discovery.
The Analysis of the Differences between Electromechanical Transients Simulation and Electromagnetic Transients Simulation  [PDF]

The paper firstly interprets the differences between electromechanical transients program BPA and electromagnetic transients program EMTDC in the field of principle, model and algorithm. Then the authors carry out the simulation based on single-machine infinite-bus system and draw some conclusions. The time consumption of the simulation using EMTDC is much longer than the simulation using BPA under the same length of time. The results of BPA are close to those of EMTDC under steady conditions. The fundamental frequency component of the EMTDC results seems closer to the BPA results than its original value, but they still away from completely consistent. In this simulation of single-machine infinite-bus system, the transient stability results of BPA and EMTDC are close, but the results of BPA are apt to be more conservative. All the conclusions above have a certain reference value to both hybrid simulation and comprehensive analysis method in the study of the AC/DC digital simulation of large power grid.

Abstract: Human anatomy is an important part of the foundation curriculum for undergraduate nursing program in China. Practical teaching of human anatomy plays a key role in consolidating the theoretical knowledge and cultivating students’ innovative spirit and practical abilities. With the development of information technology, the characteristics of the nursing specialties combined with information-based education need to be targeted in practical teaching of nursing anatomy. This paper describes a mode we have created for practical teaching, which combines the application of anatomical knowledge and clinical nursing skills in practical teaching; the improvements we have made to the nursing anatomy course are less rote learning, more independent learning, the provision of the online facilities for self-directed learning, the improvement in the quality of the practical laboratory facilities and the humanistic quality of the students’ education.These innovations will improve the quality and effectiveness of the nursing anatomy teaching, and promote the provision of high-quality practical personnel training for undergraduate nurses under information technology in China.

Discussion on Behavior of Platinum Group Metals in Pressure Cyanide Leaching


金属学报 , 2004,
Abstract: 对加压氰化浸出过程Pt族金属(Pt,Pd,Rh)行为的研究表明,Pt族金属氰化浸出率的顺序为Pd>Pt>Rh,而相应氰配合物高温下稳定性顺序为Rh≈Pt>Pd浸出过程中的行为规律实际上反映的是表面态Pt族金属的化学反应活性顺序,也即金属的原子态稳定性和金属键强度两种变化规律的综合表现,而Pt族金属氰配合物高温稳定性可以由“重Pt族配合物比相应结构的轻Pt族配合物的热力学稳定性更大,动力学惰性更高”以及金属氰配离子反应活性得到解释。
