Nantong University , colloquially known in Chinese as Tong da , was established in 1912. The university is located in Nantong, Jiangsu province, China. It occupies 4000 acres and have 800 thousand square meters used for school buildings. Nantong is comprehensive university constructed by Jiangsu Provincial Government and the state Ministry of Transport. It is composed of three parts, Nantong Medical College, Nantong Engineering College and Nantong Normal College and has four campuses: the new campus, Qixiu campus, Zhongxiu campus and Qidong campus. The enrollment is nearly 34 thousand full-time students, among whom 1550 are graduates and 300 are oversea students. The university has 84 undergraduate programs based on nine major disciplines, which are literature, science, engineering, medical science, education, economics, law, history and management.

Hand Clinics | Year: 2013
This article reviews recent reports of outcomes of flexor tendon repair and discusses the problems associated with such surgeries. Reports of no repair rupture in individual case series have emerged recently. Their results move toward the clinical goal of primary repair without repair rupture. The Strickland method remains the most common to record the outcomes. Outcomes should be provided by subzones of the tendon injuries, and the level of expertise of the surgeons expertise should be reported to allow comparisons of the results. © 2013.

The multicellular female gametophyte, a unique feature of higher plants, provides us with an excellent experimental system to address fundamental questions in biology. During the past few years, we have gained significant insight into the mechanisms that control embryo sac polarity, gametophytic cell specification, and recognition between male and female gametophytic cells. An auxin gradient has been shown for the first time to function in the female gametophyte to regulate gametic cell fate, and key genes that control gametic cell fate have also been identified. This review provides an overview of these exciting discoveries with a focus on molecular and genetic data. Copyright © 2010 by Annual Reviews. All rights reserved.

Tea (Camellia sinensis) has a long history of medicinal use in Asian countries such as China, Japan, India and Thailand as ancient as 500,000 years ago. Tea is globally one of the most popular and lowest cost beverages, next only to water. Tea leaves are popularly consumed with unfermented (green tea), semi-fermented (oolong tea), and fermented (black and puerh) forms. The chemical composition of tea mainly includes polyphenols (TPP), proteins, polysaccharides (TPS), chlorophyll, and alkaloids. Great advances have been made in chemical and bioactive studies of catechins and polyphenols from tea in recent decades. However, polysaccharides from tea materials have received much less consideration than TPP. Recently, TPS from tea leaves and flowers have attracted great interest. The number of relevant publications has increased rapidly in recent years. Herein, the bioactivities and function aspects of TPS from Chinese tea were reviewed. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

Nonlinear Analysis: Real World Applications | Year: 2014
Considered herein is the Cauchy problem of a generalized two-component μ-Camassa-Holm (μ-CH) system in the periodic setting. After the local well-posedness result is established, we first obtain a wave breaking criterion for solutions. Based on which, several blow-up data and blow up rate for strong solutions are also provided afterwards. Finally, a sufficient condition guaranteeing the global existence of strong solutions is determined. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

Bnip3L, also known as NIX, is a homolog of the E1B 19K/Bcl-2 binding and pro-apoptotic protein Bnip3 which can bind to Bcl-2 to elaborate that effect. In tumor cells, Bnip3L played a role in tumor growth inhibition, but some studies argued hypoxia-induced autophagy via Bnip3L was a survival mechanism that promoted tumor progression. In heart muscle, it related to decreased myocardial function. However, its function in intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is still not clear. In this frame, we found the Bnip3L expression increased in the perihematomal region in adult rats after performed ICH. Double immunofluorenscence staining manifested that Bnip3L co-located with neurons, not astrocytes or oligodendrocytes. Furthermore, we detected that neuronal apoptosis marker active caspase-3 had colocalizations with Bnip3L. In addition, colocalizations and co-immunoprecipitation between Bnip3L and Bcl-2, consistent with previous study, were also found. All our findings suggested that Bnip3L might be involved in the pathophysiology of ICH.
