In this paper, we investigated the effect of growth time on the morphology of zinc oxide nanorods (ZnO NRs) on 40 nm-thick sputtered Al-doped ZnO (AZO) thin films. The ZnO NRs were grown on AZO films by hydrothermal method using zinc acetate and hexamethylenetramine (HMTA) as precursor at 90 °C. The growth time varied from 3-12 hour. The structure and morphology were characterized by X-ray diffraction, field-emission scanning electron microscope (FE-SEM) and transmission electron microscope (TEM). The ZnO NRs showed a good crystallinity with vertically alignment. In addition, the result indicates that different growth time produced different morphologies and growth mechanisms of ZnO NRs on the AZO thin films were discussed. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd.

We report the first chromosome analysis in the Indian vagabond butterflyfish (Chaetodon decussatus) and lined butterflyfish (C. lineolatus) from Andaman Sea, Phuket Province, Thailand. Kidney cell samples were taken from four male and four female fishes. The mitotic chromosome preparation was directly prepared from kidney cells. The chromosomes were stained with conventional and Ag-NOR staining techniques. The results showed that the diploid chromosome number of C. decussatus and C. lineolatus was 2n=48, and the fundamental number (NF) was 48 in both males and females. The chromosomes were present as large telocentric and medium telocentric chromosomes in numbers of 24-24 and 22-26, respectively. There was no observation of strange size chromosomes related to sex. After Ag-NOR banding technique, a single pair of nucleolar organizer regions (NORs) was observed on the long arm centromeric region of medium telocentric chromosome pair 18 in C. decussatus and on the long arm subcentromeric region of medium telocentric chromosome pair 17 in C. lineolatus. The karyotype formulas could be deduced as: {equation presented} {equation presented} © 2017 The Japan Mendel Society.

The voltage-mode quadrature sinusoidal oscillator using single voltage differencing tranconductance amplifier (VDTA) and grounded elements is presented. The proposed oscillator can provide 2 sinusoidal output voltages with 90° phase difference. The condition of oscillation (CO) and frequency of oscillation can be electronically/orthogonally controlled by adjusting the bias current of the VDTA. The use of only grounded elements is ideal for integration. The PSpice simulation results are depicted. The given results agree well with the theoretical anticipation. © 2012 IEEE.

This article presents a new voltage-mode first order allpass filter (APF) employing voltage differencing transconductance amplifier (VDTA). The advantages of the circuit are that: the circuit description is very compact, consists of merely a VDTA and a capacitor: the phase shift can be electronically adjusted by current bias: it provides the lower THD of the output signal. Without any component matching conditions, the proposed circuit is very appropriate to further develop into an integrated circuit. Moreover, the proposed APF can provide the output current with high output impedance without modification of the circuit topology. The PSpice simulation results are depicted. The given results agree well with the theoretical anticipation. The maximum power consumption is 400μ W at ±1.25V power supplies. © 2014 Advances in electrical and electronic engineering.

In this study, a current-mode first order allpass filter using current follower transconductance amplifiers (CFTAs) is proposed. The features of the circuit are that: the pole frequency, phase response and current gain can be electronically controlled via the input bias current: the circuit description is very simple, consisting of 2 CFTAs, 1 resistor and 1 grounded capacitor, without any component matching requirements. Consequently, the proposed circuit is very appropriate to further develop into an integrated circuit. Low input and high output impedances of the proposed configuration enable the circuit to be cascaded in current-mode without additional current buffers. The PSpice simulation results are depicted. The given results agree well with the theoretical anticipation.

This paper presents a conceptual design of multi-agent for adaptive over-current relay coordination. In some temporary circumstances e.g. line outage, connecting a new or existing generator, etc., may lead to mal-operation of pre-coordinated protective devices in power systems. The set of protective relays must be enhanced with ability of adaptation in such a way that their parameter setting is adjusted. The multi-agent system proposed here is to develop optimal relay coordination adaptively according to environment changes. In this paper, Java Agent Development (JADE) software package was used for implementing the proposed multi-agent system. The communication process and data transfer can be simulated and monitored by using the sniffer agent GUI that helps us to confirm the use of multi-agent systems for an application of adaptive relay coordination. The 6-bus test power system was used for test. The results showed that the use of the multi-agent system is very useful in adaptive over-current relay coordination. © 2012 IEEE.

The antioxidant activities of 24 isoflavonoids that were previously isolated as pure compounds from Dalbergia parviflora were evaluated using three different in vitro antioxidant-based assay systems: xanthine/xanthine oxidase (X/XO), ORAC, and DPPH. The isolates consisted of three subgroups, namely isoflavones, isoflavanones, and isoflavans, each of which appeared to have diversified substituents, and were thus ideal for the study of their structure-activity relationships (SARs). The SAR analysis was performed using the results obtained from both the inter-subgroup isoflavonoids with the same substitution pattern and the intra-subgroup compounds with different substitution patterns. The inter-subgroup comparison showed that the isoflavones exhibited the highest antioxidant activities based on all three assays. The intra-subgroup analysis showed that the additional presence of an OH group in Ring B at either R3′ or R5′ from the basic common structure of the R7-OH of Ring A and the R4′-OH (or -OMe) of Ring B greatly increased the antioxidant activities of all of the isoflavonoid subgroups and that other positions of OH and OMe substitutions exerted different effects on the activities depending on the subgroup and assay type. Therefore, based on the structural diversity of the isoflavonoids in D. parviflora, the present study provides the first clarification of the detailed antioxidant SARs of isoflavonoids. © 2014 by the authors; licensee MDPI, Basel, Switzerland.

While attempting to isolate the enzyme geranylgeraniol 18-hydroxylase, which is involved in plaunotol biosynthesis in Croton stellatopilosus (Cs), the cDNAs for a cytochrome P450 monooxygenase(designated as CYP76F45) and an NADPH-cytochrome P450 reductase (designated as CPR I based on its classification) were isolated from the leaf. The CYP76F45 and CsCPR I genes have open reading frames (ORFs) encoding 507- and 711-amino acid proteins with predicted relative molecular weights of 56.7 and 79.0 kDa,respectively. Amino acid sequence comparison showed that both CYP76F45 (6373%) and CsCPR I (7983%) share relatively high sequence identities with homologous proteins in other plant species.Phylogenetic tree analysis confirmed that CYP76F45 belongs to the CYP76 family and that CsCPR I belongs to Class I of dicotyledonous CPRs, with both being closely related to Ricinus communis genes. Functional characterization of both enzymes, each expressed separately in Escherichia coli as recombinant proteins,showed that only simultaneous incubation of the membrane bound proteins with the substrate geraniol (GOH) and the coenzyme NADPH could form 8-hydroxygeraniol. The enzyme mixture could also utilize acyclic sesquiterpene farnesol (FOH) with a comparable substrate preference ratio (GOH:FOH) of 54:46. The levelsof the CYP76F45 and CsCPR I transcripts in the shoots, leaves and twigs of C. stellatopilosus were correlated with the levels of a major monoterpenoid indole alkaloid, identified tentatively as 19-Evallesamine,that accumulated in these plant parts. These results suggested that CYP76F45 and CPR I function as the enzyme geraniol-8-hydroxylase (G8H), which is likely to be involved in the biosynthesis of the indole alkaloid in C. stellatopilosus [corrected].

Cadmium (Cd) has known to produce many adverse effects on organs including placenta. Many essential transporters are involved in Cd transport pathways such as DMT-1, ZIP as well as L-VDCC. Fourteen pregnant women participated and were divided into two groups: high and low Cd-exposed (H-Cd, L-Cd) groups on the basis of their residential areas, Cd concentrations in the blood (B-Cd), urine (U-Cd), and placenta (P-Cd). The results showed that the B-Cd and U-Cd were significantly increased in H-Cd group (p<0.05). Interestingly, the P-Cd in H-Cd group was elevated (p<0.05) and positively related to their B-Cd and U-Cd values (p<0.05). However, the mean cord blood Cd (C-Cd) concentration in H-Cd group was not significantly increased about 2.5-fold when comparing to L-Cd group. To determine the Cd accumulation in placental tissues, metallothionein-1A (MT-1A) and metallothionein-2A (MT-2A) expressions were used as biomarkers. The results revealed that mean MT-1A and MT-2A mRNAs and MT-1/2 proteins were up-regulated in H-Cd group (p<0.05). In addition, the Ca channel alpha 1C (CACNA1C) mRNA and protein expressions were noticeably elevated in H-Cd group (p<0.05). From these findings, we suggested that CACNA1C might be implicated in Cd transport in human placenta.
