Multimodal molecular imaging in the second near-infrared window - Supplementary material

Menglin Wu, Xue Li, Xiaoyu Mu, Xuening Zhang, Hao Wang & Xiao-Dong Zhang
Near-infrared-II (NIR-II) fluorescence imaging has rapidly developed for the noninvasive investigation of physiological and pathological activities in living organisms with high spatiotemporal resolution. However, the penetration depth of fluorescence restricts its ability to provide deep anatomical information. Scientists integrate NIR-II fluorescence imaging with other imaging modes (such as photoacoustic and magnetic resonance imaging) to create multimodal imaging that can acquire detailed anatomical and quantitative information with deeper penetration by using multifunctional probes. This review offers...

Supporting data for \"Protons Buffer at Cathode via Al3+(H2O)6 Hydrolysis for Enhancing Electrochemical Reduction: Examples of Bismuth-Oxychloride Storage Battery and Carbon Dioxide Conversion\"

Wai Yu Lam
The hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) is an undesirable cathodic reaction in aqueous electrochemical technologies such as carbon dioxide reduction (ERCO2) and bismuth-based electrode discharge in storage batteries. Most aqueous electrochemical systems are either acidic or alkaline media which promote the unwanted HER. This thesis aims at deploying Al3+(H2O)6 buffered aqueous electrolyte to facilitate the reduction of BiOCl electrode and ERCO2 with improvement in energy efficiency.

Wanru He, Xuecao Li, Yuyu Zhou, Zitong Shi, Guojiang Yu, Tengyun Hu, Yixuan Wang, Jianxi Huang, Tiecheng Bai, Zhongchang Sun, Xiaoping Liu & Peng Gong
We developed a gridded global proportional urban extent dataset (2015-2100, 5-year interval) at 1km spatial resolution under various future development pathways. Unlike the commonly used binary (0-non-urban, 1-urban) urban products, this dataset provides the fractional information (i.e., ISA from 0 to 1) within each 1km pixel. Here, each .zip file represents one of eight scenarios, containing 17 GEOTIFF files (2015-2100, 5-year interval), which can be opened by ArcMap or QGIS. Questions about this dataset can...

Jia-Ling Hu, Yipin Duan, Huai-Ning Zhong, Qin-Bao Lin, Tianlong Zhang, Chuang-Chuang Zhao, Sheng Chen, Ben Dong, Dan Li, Jing Wang, Ming-Zhen Mo, Jie Chen & Jian-Guo Zheng
Plastic take-out food containers may release microplastics (MPs) into food and pose a potential risk to food safety and human health. Here, after being subjected to hot water treatment, MPs released from three types of plastic food containers (polypropylene, PP; polyethylene, PE; expanded polystyrene, EPS) were identified by micro-Raman spectroscopy. The results showed that the size of released MPs ranged from 0.8–38 μm and over 96% MPs were smaller than 10 μm. Various MPs concentrations...

Petrogenesis and geochronology of the bronze fox porphyry Cu-Au deposit: Implications for the geodynamic evolution of the Gurvansaykhan Island arc, southern Mongolia

Bayaraa Ganbat, Xiaoyong Yang, Yu Wang, Dashdorjgochoo Odgerel, Mohamed Faisal, Dorjgochoo Sanchir, Amgaa Tsolmon, Enkhtur Munkhtur & Chao Sun
A diversity of Devonian-Carboniferous volcanic arcs and granitoid intrusions are exposed in the Gurvansaykhan arc terrane of southern Mongolia. Several giant porphyry Cu-Au-Mo deposits are associated with intrusions within these arcs. The Bronze Fox deposit located in the central part of the Gurvansaykhan arc terrane is an example of a potentially economic deposit with affinity of adakite-like granitoid porphyry (i.e. 428 Mt grading 0.26% to 0.30% Cu for up to 2,437 Mlb of copper and...

Bioinformatics analysis: relationship between adrenocortical carcinoma and KIFs

Xiao Li, Yanghao Tai, Shuying Liu, Yating Gao, Kaining Zhang, Jierong Yin, Huijuan Zhang, Xia Wang, Xiaofei Li & Dongfeng Zhang
Adrenal cortical cancer has a relatively low incidence, but a dismal 5-year survival rate. Surgical intervention is the gold standard of care today. In spite of this progress, patients continue to have a dismal outlook. The results of this study demonstrate that kinin superfamily (KIF) has strong ties to many different types of cancers. However, their prognostic and immune cell infiltration of adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) remain unclear. Multiple databases were searched for information on the...

Somatostatin attenuates intestinal epithelial barrier injury during acute intestinal ischemia–reperfusion through Tollip/Myeloiddifferentiationfactor 88/Nuclear factor kappa-B signaling

Yan Tian, Ruo Shu, Yi Lei, Yu Xu, Xinfeng Zhang & Huayou Luo
In the process of ischemia–reperfusion injury, intestinal ischemia and inflammation interweave, leading to tissue damage or necrosis. However, oxygen radicals and inflammatory mediators produced after reperfusion cause tissue damage again, resulting in severe intestinal epithelial barrier dysfunction. The aim of this study was to determine the protective effect of somatostatin on intestinal epithelial barrier function during intestinal ischemia–reperfusion injury and explore its mechanism. By establishing a rat intestinal ischemia–reperfusion model, pretreating the rats with somatostatin,...

Expression status and prognostic value of autophagy-related lncRNAs in prostate cancer

Guo Chen, Xiaoping Qin, Yu Wang, Biyun Gao, Muan Ling, Wenjun Yin, Yutong Li & Bin Pan
LncRNAs involve in the autophagy to regulate prostate cancer (PCA) initiation and progression. Therefore, it urges to explore more significant AR-lncRNAs in PCa. mRNA data and clinical information of PCa were achieved from TCGA database, and ARGs were obtained from the HADb. AR-lncRNAs were identified by correlation analysis of DE ARGs and lncRNAs. Univariate Cox regression, LASSO regression, and multivariate Cox regression were used to identify the prognostic AR-lncRNA signature and constructed a risk model....

Ant body size mediates functional performance and species interactions in carrion decomposer communities

Sabine Sylvia Nooten, Kin Chan, Patrick Schultheiss, Taylor Bogar & Benoit Guénard
Growing concern over rapid species declines and extinctions has led to considerable interest in the role of biodiversity for maintaining ecological processes. However, the loss of particular species has more pronounced effects on ecosystem services than others, highlighting the importance of key functional species traits and their relationships to ecosystem functioning. Human induced disturbances, such as species invasions, land use changes or abiotic changes, appear to disproportionally impact larger species rather than smaller ones. The...

Two QTL for kernel number per spike identified from durum wheat

Jingtian Yang, Zhengqiao Liao, Baoguo Du, Kuan Zhang & Lei Liu
As one of the three yield components, kernel number per spike (KNPS) plays a key role in determining wheat yield. In this study, in combination with the previously constructed genetic map for a tetraploid wheat recombinant inbred line (RIL) population developed from the cross between a durum wheat and a wild emmer wheat and phenotype data from four environments, two major and stably expressed quantitative trait loci (QTL) for KNPS were identified. The phenotypic variation...

Lei Li, Qian Wan, Qiaoyun Long, Tao Nie, Shiting Zhao, Liufeng Mao, Chuanli Cheng, Chao Zuo, Kerry Loomes, Aimin Xu, Liangxue Lai, Xin Liu, Ziyuan Duan, Xiaoyan Hui & Donghai Wu
Interscapular brown adipose tissue (iBAT) of both rabbits and humans exhibits a similar whitening phenomenon under physiological conditions. However, the detailed characterization of iBAT whitening in them is still lacking. Here, we chose rabbits as a model to gain a better understanding of the molecular signature changes during the whitening process of iBAT by transcriptomic analysis of rabbit iBAT at day 1, day 14, 1 month and 4 months after birth. We applied non-invasive MRI...

HKU956: Dataset in \"Detecting Music-Induced Emotion Based on Acoustic Analysis and Physiological Sensing: A Multimodal Approach\"

Xiao Hu, Fanjie Li & Ruilun Liu
Introduction HKU956 is a multimodal dataset for analyzing listeners’ emotions and physiological responses induced by music. Five kinds of peripheral physiological signals (i.e., heart rate, electrodermal activity, blood volume pulse, inter-beat interval, and skin temperature) of 30 participants (18 females) were recorded as they listened to music within a period of 40 minutes. Each participant listened to 10 or more songs, and their physiological signals were aligned with the 956 listening records. Participants reported their...
