The genus Conidiobolus is an important group in entomophthoroid fungi and is considered to be polyphyletic in recent molecular phylogenies. To re-evaluate and delimit this genus, multi-locus phylogenetic analyses were performed using the large and small subunits of nuclear ribosomal DNA ( nucLSU and nucSSU ), the small subunit of the mitochondrial ...
In the present study, the demosponge genus Melophlus Thiele, 1899 is revised and the type specimens of all its species are re-examined. The diagnosis of the genus is amended, based on the presence in the type species, M. sarasinorum Thiele, 1899, of a well-developed ectosome of acanthomicrorhabds and a dense feltwork of large oxeas, together with o...

The morphogenesis and molecular phylogeny of two soil hypotrich ciliates, Australocirrus australis and A. aspoecki, collected from Xi'an, Shaanxi Province, China, were investigated using protargol preparation. The main features of morphogenesis of A. australis are as follows: (1) the parental adoral zone of membranelles is retained completely in th...

The applications of industrial polymers have grown extensively owing to the fact of their competent performance characteristics, at par with commonly used engineering materials, as well as technological breakthroughs. Friction stir welding (FSW) of thermoplastics is a recent approach that enabled the permanent joining of similar or dissimilar polym...

BackgroundGene mutations correlated with histological and immunohistochemical phenotypes of hepatocellular adenoma were recently identified. Based on these findings, four adenoma subtypes were distinguished. We classify hepatocellular adenoma (HCA) into subtypes based on histologic and immunohistochemical findings and verify the contribution of his...

In order to solve the shortcomings of traditional Sobel edge detection operator, such as low accuracy of image edge location and rough edge extracted, an improved edge detection algorithm based on Sobel operator is proposed. Firstly, in the aspect of the accuracy of edge detection, the direction template is increased from two directions of horizont...

Increased food consumption rich in fat and carbohydrate and sedentary lifestyle have seriously increased the rates of obesity and obesity-associated diseases in developed countries. Female mice with diet-induced obesity exhibit infertility and thus can serve as a model for human polycystic ovary syndrome. The aim of the present study was to examine...

Morphological characterization of chars from coal and bagasse plays an important role in both the burning efficiency and intrinsic reactivity of chars, during a combustion process  ,  . In this work, abundant data on the morphology of chars produced from coal and bagasse blends are presented. Char synthesis was performed varying the temperatu...
We seek to understand how certain characteristics in the structure of neuron-to-neuron connectivity shape the activity of local neural circuits. The local connectivity of cortical networks features a nonrandom higher order structure characterized by the presence of tightly connected clusters of neurons. We use a biologically detailed model of neoco...
