A transcriptomic analysis of neuropathic pain in the anterior cingulate cortex after nerve injuryYu Zhang, Shiwei Jiang, Fei Liao, Zhifeng Huang, Xin Yang, Yu Zou, Xin He, Qulian Guo & Changsheng Huang
The anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) is a core brain region processing pain emotion. In this study, we performed RNA sequencing analysis to reveal transcriptomic profiles of the ACC in a rat chronic constriction injury (CCI) model. A total of 1628 differentially expressed genes (DEGs) were identified by comparing sham-operated rats with rats of 12 hours, 1, 3, 7, and 14 days after surgery, respectively. Although these inflammatory-related DEGs were generally increased after CCI, different kinetics...
Molecular evidence to the day length in regulating the short shoot phenomenon during summer in roses (Rosa sp.)Li Wang, Wan Jiang, Wuhua Zhang, Weitong Chen, Yu Mo, Tong Zhou, Jinzhu Zhang & Daidi Che
The short shoot phenomenon is an important phenotype underlying the economic value of roses – node number can directly affect shoot length. To elucidate the molecular mechanism of how day length affects shoot length, the effect of 8, 10, and 12 h day lengths on node number were studied. The number of nodes between the 8 and 12 h treatment groups significantly differed. Node development in the 12 h treatment group occurred significantly earlier than...

Sponge iron (SI) is widely used in water treatment. As effluents from wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) require advanced treatment methodology, three forms of constructed wetlands (CWs): wetlands with sponge iron (SI), copper sulfate modified sponge iron (Cu/SI), and sponge iron coupled with solid carbon sources (C/SI), have been investigated in this paper for the removal effects of organic matter and nutrients in WWTP effluents, and the corresponding mechanisms have been analyzed. The results showed the...
An Additive Graphical Model for Discrete DataJun Tao, Bing Li & Lingzhou Xue
We introduce a nonparametric graphical model for discrete node variables based on additive conditional independence. Additive conditional independence is a three-way statistical relation that shares similar properties with conditional independence by satisfying the semi-graphoid axioms. Based on this relation we build an additive graphical model for discrete variables that does not suffer from the restriction of a parametric model such as the Ising model. We develop an estimator of the new graphical model via the...
