Vancomycin-modified LaB6@SiO2/Fe3O4 composite nanoparticles for near-infrared photothermal ablation of bacteria
Dong-Hwang Chen

Infectious bacterial diseases continue to be a leading cause of death and disability. In particular, infections resulting from gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria remain a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in human. In this study, we developed a novel material “Vancomycin-modified LaB6@SiO2/Fe3O4

Spawning stress triggers WSSV replication in brooders via the activation of shrimp STAT
Han-Ching Wang

White spot disease (WSD) is a threat to the global shrimp industry that results in enormous economic losses worldwide. White spot syndrome virus (WSSV), the causative agent of WSD, is a novel, large dsDNA virus showing only a few similarities to currently known viruses. Because of its uniqueness, its infection model must be studied ab initio. WSD is transmitted not only horizontally, but …

Very low-density lipoprotein/lipo-viro particles reverse lipoprotein lipase-mediated inhibition of hepatitis C virus infection via apolipoprotein C-III
Kung-Chia Young

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection takes advantage of hepatic lipid/lipoprotein synthesis pathways. Infectious virions associate with intravascular triglyceride-rich lipoproteins, including very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) and low-density lipoprotein (LDL), forming lipo-viro-particles (LVP). Previous studies showed that lipoprotein lipase (LPL), an initial enzyme driving triglyceride hydrolysis of …

Development of a Recurrent Fuzzy CMAC with Adjustable Input Space Quantization and Self-Tuning Learning Rate for Control of a Dual-Axis Piezoelectric Actuated Micro Motion Stage
Ming-Yang Cheng

Due to attractive features such as small size, light weight, large force output, low energy consumption and fast response, piezo-actuated micro-motion stages have been widely used in precision industries. However, the motion accuracy of the piezo-actuated-motion stage is affected by creep phenomenon, high frequency vibration, the hysteresis effect, and more. In particular, the hysteresis effect …
