Although we previously reported that Crocodylus siamensis hemoglobin (cHb) exhianti-inflammatory properties by suppressing nitric oxide (NO) production, the actual underlymechanism has yet remained elusive. Consequently, this report represents the first study to shed light upon the basic mechanistic details of the anti-inflammatory activities of In the present study, both 100 and 200μg/ml of cHb were found to reduce the productof NO in LPS-stimulated RAW 264.7 cells. Consistent with the NO testing results, it observed that co-treatment with cHb also significantly decreased inducible nitric oxide synth(iNOS), likely due to decreased expression levels of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) and cytokines, such as interleukin (IL)-1β and IL-6 mRNA. Therefore, these indicate that the mechanism of cHb-induced decrease of NO production might be associawith the transcriptional suppression of iNOS. Moreover, the expression of heme oxygena1 (HO-1), an anti-inflammatory enzyme, was evaluated in more detail. It could be shown HO-1 levels were increased in RAW 264.7 cells co-treated with cHb in a concentration-dependmanner. To elucidate the proteomics response of macrophages treated with LPS in the preseor absence of cHb, several proteins with differential expressions were identified via LC-MMS analysis. With respect to the individual functions of these proteins, our data indicainvolvement in various processes during inflammation, such as cellular metabolism, protfate, oxidative burst, signal transduction and morphogenesis. Consequently, all results of study directly indicate that cHb exhibits anti-inflammatory activity on LPS-stimulated 264.7 cells via functioning as an activator or suppressor in the expression of inflammatfactor genes and affects several specific proteins related to important pathways of inflammati © 2017, Chiang Mai University.

OsNUC1 encodes rice nucleolin, which has been shown to be involved in salt stress responses. Expression of the full-length OsNUC1 gene in Arabidopsis resulted in hypersensitivity to ABA during germination. Transcriptome analysis of the transgenic lines, in comparison with the wild type, revealed that the RNA abundance of >1,900 genes was significantly changed under normal growth conditions, while under salt stress conditions the RNAs of 999 genes were found to be significantly regulated. Gene enrichment analysis showed that under normal conditions OsNUC1 resulted in repression of genes involved in photosynthesis, while in salt stress conditions OsNUC1 increased expression of the genes involved in the light-harvesting complex. Correspondingly, the net rate of photosynthesis of the transgenic lines was increased under salt stress. Transgenic rice lines with overexpression of the OsNUC1-L gene were generated and tested for photosynthetic performance under salt stress conditions. The transgenic rice lines treated with salt stress at the booting stage had a higher photosynthetic rate and stomatal conductance in flag leaves and second leaves than the wild type. Moreover, higher contents of Chl a and carotenoids were found in flag leaves of the transgenic rice. These results suggest a role for OsNUC1 in the modification of the transcriptome, especially the gene transcripts responsible for photosynthesis, leading to stabilization of photosynthesis under salt stress conditions. © The Author 2017.

We applied traditional time series analysis and artificial neural network (ANN) techniques to model and forecast the power consumption of Bangkok's metropolitan area. Time series data in terms of units of household electricity usage were obtained from the Metropolitan Electricity Authority of Thailand. The data had been collected monthly from January 2010 to May 2015. Forecasting models with different parameters are generated from both techniques using the training data, which are the series from January 2010 to December 2014. The remaining data from January 2015 to May 2015 are employed as the testing data. Forecasting performance of each model is measured by the rooted mean square error (RMSE) and the mean absolute percentage error (MAPE) metrics. The traditional time series forecasting models studied in this research are GLM, HoltWinters, and ARIMA. For ANN, we examine four models using 3 layers with different number of neurons ranging from 4 to 7: 3L-4N, 3L-5N, 3L-6N, and 3L-7N. The experimental results reveal that ARIMA is superior among the traditional time series models. For the intelligent based models, 3L-6N is the best of ANN models. Moreover, the MAPE metric of the 3L-6N model is less than the ARIMA model. As a result, we can conclude that ANN model is more powerful in forecasting power distribution units than the traditional time series models.

In this paper, the properties of solidified waste using ordinary Portland cement (OPC) containing silica fume (SF) and fly ash (FA) as a binder are reported. Silica fume and fly ash are used to partially replace ordinary Portland cement by 10% and 30% by weight, respectively. Plating sludge is used of 40, 50 and 60% by weight of the binder. A water to binder (w/b) ratio of 0.40 is used for all of the mixtures. The compressive strength of the solidified wastes is investigated. The leachability of heavy metals is determined by TCLP and XRD, and XRF is used to study the chemical properties, while the fractured surfaces are studied by SEM, and the pore size distribution is studied by MIP. The test results show that the setting time of the blended cement increased as the amount of plating sludge in the mix increased. In addition, the compressive strength of the blended cement increased with increasing curing duration time but at a decreasing rate. The compressive strengths at 28 days of the SF solidified waste mixes are 12.4, 2.7, 1.34 MPa and those of FA solidified waste mixes are 1.1, 1.0, 0.5 MPa at the plating sludge of 40, 50 and 60% by weight of the binder, respectively. The quality of the solidified waste containing SF and FA is better than that with OPC alone in terms of the effectiveness in reducing the leachability. The concentrations of heavy metals in the leachates are within the limits specified by the US EPA.

A catholyte is a key factor to hydrogen production in microbial electrolysis cells (MECs). Among the four groups of catholytes investigated in this study, a 100 mM phosphate buffer solution (PBS) resulted in the highest hydrogen production rate of 0.237 ± 0.031 m3H 2/m3/d, followed by 0.171 ± 0.012 m 3H2/m3/d with a 134 mM NaCl solution and 0.171 ± 0.004 m3H2/m3/d with the acidified water adjusted with sulfuric acid. The MEC with all catholytes achieved good organic removal efficiency, but the removal rate varied following the trend of the hydrogen production rate. The reuse of the catholyte for an extended period led to a decreasing hydrogen production rate, affected by the elevated pH. The cost of both the acidified water and the NaCl solution was much lower than the PBS, and therefore, they could be a better choice as an MEC catholyte with further consideration of cost reduction and chemical reuse/disposal.

The anti-inflammatory potential and underlying mechanisms of an ethanol extract of Pseuderanthemum palatiferum (EEP) leaves was investigated using LPS-activated macrophages. Our results show EEP produced a concentration-dependent suppression of TNF- and IL-6 secretion by LPS-activated mouse peritoneal macrophages. EEP also suppressed LPS-induced TNF- and IL-6 protein and mRNA levels in mouse-derived myeloid cell line RAW264.7. To further elucidate the molecular mechanisms responsible for impaired TNF- and IL-6 regulation by EEP, the activation of transcription factors, NF-B, C/EBP, and AP-1, was monitored using electrophoretic mobility shift assays. EEP suppressed LPS-induced NF-B DNA binding activity within both the TNF- and IL-6 promoters in RAW264.7cells with impairment being more pronounced in the IL-6 promoter. In addition, EEP exhibited a concentration-dependent suppression of C/EBP and AP-1 DNA binding activity within the IL-6 promoter. Concordantly, IL-6 luciferase promoter reporter activity was also suppressed by EEP in transiently transfected RAW264.7cells, upon LPS activation. EEP analysis by GC-MS and HPLC DAD-MSD revealed the presence of -sitosterol and various polyphenols, respectively, which are known to possess anti-inflammatory activity. Collectively, these results suggest that the anti-inflammatory effects of EEP are mediated, at least in part, by modulating TNF- and IL-6 expression through impairment of NF-B, C/EBP, and AP-1 activity.

The anti-inflammatory potential and underlying mechanisms of an ethanol extract of Pseuderanthemum palatiferum (EEP) leaves was investigated using LPS-activated macrophages. Our results show EEP produced a concentration-dependent suppression of TNF-α and IL-6 secretion by LPS-activated mouse peritoneal macrophages. EEP also suppressed LPS-induced TNF-α and IL-6 protein and mRNA levels in mouse-derived myeloid cell line RAW264.7. To further elucidate the molecular mechanisms responsible for impaired TNF-α and IL-6 regulation by EEP, the activation of transcription factors, NF-κB, C/EBP, and AP-1, was monitored using electrophoretic mobility shift assays. EEP suppressed LPS-induced NF-κB DNA binding activity within both the TNF-α and IL-6 promoters in RAW264.7 cells with impairment being more pronounced in the IL-6 promoter. In addition, EEP exhibited a concentration-dependent suppression of C/EBP and AP-1 DNA binding activity within the IL-6 promoter. Concordantly, IL-6 luciferase promoter reporter activity was also suppressed by EEP in transiently transfected RAW264.7 cells, upon LPS activation. EEP analysis by GC-MS and HPLC DAD-MSD revealed the presence of β-sitosterol and various polyphenols, respectively, which are known to possess anti-inflammatory activity. Collectively, these results suggest that the anti-inflammatory effects of EEP are mediated, at least in part, by modulating TNF-α and IL-6 expression through impairment of NF-κB, C/EBP, and AP-1 activity. © 2016 Elsevier Ltd

Over the last few decades, classification applied to numerous applications in science, engineering, business and industries have rapidly been increased, especially for big data. However, classifiers dealing with complicated high dimension problems with non-conforming patterns with high accuracy are rare, especially for bit-level features. It is a challenging research problem. This paper proposed a novel efficient classifier based on cellular automata model, called Cellular Automata-based Classifier (CAC). CAC possesses the promising capability to deal with non-conforming patterns in the bit-level features. It was developed on a new kind of the proposed elementary cellular automata, called Decision Support Elementary Cellular Automata (DS-ECA). The classification capability of DS-ECA is promising since it can describe very complicated decision rule in high dimension problems with less complexity. CAC comprises double rule vectors and a decision function, the structure of which has two layers; the first layer is employed to evolve an input pattern into feature space and the other interprets the patterns in feature space as binary answer through the decision function. It has a time complexity of learning at O(n2), while the classification for one instance is O(1), where n is a number of bit patterns. For classification performance, 12 datasets consisting of binary and non-binary features are empirically implemented in comparison with Support Vector Machines (SVM) using k-fold cross validation. In this respect, CAC outperforms SVM with the best kernel for binary features, and provides the promising results equivalent to SVM on average for non-binary features. © 2015 Elsevier Ltd.
