ShahdadiAbstractIn the present study, 43441 body weight-age records (21361 records on male lambs and 22060 records on female lambs) on 6899 lambs descended from 235 sires and 2842 dams that collected from 1991 to 2015 in Kordi sheep breeding station, located in Shirvan city, North Khorasan province, North-eastern area of Iran, were used. Five non-linear models including Brody, Negative exponential, von Bertalanffy, Logistic and Gompertz were fitted on body weight-age data and compared apply...

Authors: Zhang J, Zheng Q, Lu H, Jin F, Li Y, Bi F, Xu J Abstract Burn injury is a gigantic challenge in public health which brings multiple negative effects to patients both in physical and spiritual aspects. Inflammation plays vital roles in the progression of burn injury, and our study investigated whether notoginsenoside R1 (NGR1) alleviated lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced human keratinocyte HaCaT cell inflammatory injury. Inflammatory injury was induced by LPS in HaCaT cells. Stimulated cells were then treated by NGR1 in different concentrations. Cell viability and cell apoptosis were detected by Cell Countin...

BOSTON (CBS) — Researchers in Finland have developed a so-called “artificial nose” that they believe can help sniff out brain cancer during surgery. Surgeons often use an electric knife, particularly when operating on the brain. As the knife cuts, it burns through tissue, releases molecules into the air in the form of surgical smoke. Researchers developed a way to feed this smoke into a measuring system that has been taught to recognize smoke molecules from malignant tissue versus that from healthy tissue. In a study of almost 700 tissue samples, the device was at least 83 percent accurate at finding the ...

Invitae’s latest acquisition is set to firmly entrench the genetics company in the non-invasive prenatal screening (NIPS). The San Francisco-based company said it signed a definitive agreement to acquire Singular Bio for $55 million. Singular Bio specializes in developing single molecule detection technology that enables lower costs and expanded use of high-quality, cell-free, nucleic acid analysis, initially for application in NIPS. The acquisition is expected to close in the coming weeks, subject to customary closing conditions. Invitae noted the transaction will be cash neutral at close and has already...

Discussion A recent systematic review of house fires in high-income countries found that the risk factors for unintentional house fire incidents included: more children under 5 years of age, more people in the home, more males in the home, adults who are not working, low-income, household smokers, non-privately owned housing, poor condition housing. Other risk factors are not having smoke detectors, but more importantly not having a working smoke detector. Risk factors for injuries or fatalities is similar to the the risk factors for incidents but also includes people who are vulnerable such as a disabled resident, someon...

Publication date: Available online 15 June 2019Source: Biocatalysis and Agricultural BiotechnologyAuthor(s): Pham Anh Duc, P. Dharanipriya, Bharath Kumar Velmurugan, M. ShanmugavadivuAbstractGroundnut shells account for approximately 20% of the dried peanut pod by weight, meaning there is a significant amount of shell residual left after groundnut processing. Increased groundnut production leads to the accumulation of these groundnut shells which is not utilized, thus either burnt or buried. As Groundnut shells are rich in many functional compounds and composed of cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin, it can be utilized in ...

In this paper, the process of gas–liquid flow, mass transfer and chemical reaction in the DLST were fully investigated through a pilot-scale DLST and the corresponding numerical model. The numerical model was verified based on the experiment and applied to predict a DLST of 200&thinsp...
