This study provides supporting evidence for the association between SOX9 and liquid–liquid phase separation. We show that SOX9 colocalized with a paraspeckle protein NONO in many, but not all, of the immortalized and primary murine Sertoli cells examined. In addition, we confirmed that SOX9 has structural characteristics of intrinsically disordered proteins.
This paper studies the problem of proper‐walk connection number: given an undirected connected graph, our aim is to colour its edges with as few colours as possible so that there exists a properly coloured walk between every pair of vertices of the graph, that is, a walk that does not use consecutively two edges of the same colour. The problem was already solved on several classes of graphs but still...
We introduce a list‐coloring extension of classical Ramsey numbers. We investigate when the two Ramsey numbers are equal, and in general, how far apart they can be from each other. We find graph sequences where the two are equal and where they are far apart. For ‐uniform cliques we prove that the list Ramsey number is bounded by an exponential function, while it is well known that the Ramsey number...
To systematically review male partners’ caring experience and supportive care needs when caring for women with gynaecologic cancer.
The PRISMA guidelines were used to conduct this systematic review. We performed a comprehensive literature search in nine databases and qualitative studies published in English or Chinese from inception to January 2020. The included papers were appraised,...
To demonstrate how metaphor method can be employed in health care research, through a rainbow metaphor to conceptualise lived experiences, and represent a sense of verisimilitude, in a phenomenological study of international nurses' experiences of organ procurement procedures.
International operating room nurses are likely to form unique attitudes towards multi‐organ procurement...
Aims and objectives
To present and compare midwives’ self‐perceived essential competencies in regions with different maternal mortality ratios, and explore possible competency‐related factors.
In China, there is an urgent need for high‐quality maternal health care with equal access, as the regional disparity in the maternal mortality ratio remains a big challenge. Midwives’ essential...
We study the maximum number of copies of a graph in graphs with a given number of vertices and edges. We show that for any fixed graph is asymptotically realized by the quasi‐clique provided that the edge density is sufficiently large. We also investigate a variant of this problem, when the host graph is bipartite.
Aims and objectives
To explore the informational privacy of patients in prehospital emergency care based on the existing literature.
Informational privacy, a central value in health care, is strongly connected to patients' safety and quality of care. However, its realisation faces challenges in the unique context of prehospital emergency care.
Integrative literature review....
Unintentional intraoperative hypothermia was regarded as a common intraoperative symptom with serious complications. The active warming strategies of forced‐air warming (FAW) and carbon‐fibre polymer‐fabric resistive heating were considered to be effective interventions for preventing hypothermia. However, the effectiveness of them was not reported consistently.
To evaluate the effectiveness...
Aims and objectives
To evaluate the psychometric properties of a new Persian translation of the Readiness for Hospital Discharge Scale.
Globally, one in 10 newborns are born preterm and many require care in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). A primary role of NICU nurses is to assure parents are well prepared to take their newborns home from the hospital. Assessment of parent perception...
Efficient synthetic methods were established for obtaining 2‐fluorobenzofurans involving various substituents. Upon being treated with 1,8‐diazabicyclo[5.4.0]undec‐7‐ene under microwave irradiation, the α‐unsubstituted β,β‐difluoro‐o‐hydroxystyrenes underwent nucleophilic 5‐endo‐trig cyclization to afford the corresponding 2‐fluorobenzofurans in high yields. Furthermore, 2‐fluoro‐3‐iodobenzofuran...
To explore nurses’ experiences in natural disaster response.
Nurses are key to disaster response. There is a growing body of qualitative research exploring this emerging nursing issue. However, there is a need to synthesise and summarise this body of knowledge to identify the overarching elements of how nurses experience working in disaster situations to reflect on their experiences...
To evaluate the effects of activated charcoal powder (COAL) combined with regular (RT) or whitening (WT) toothpastes on enamel color and surface in comparison to carbamide peroxide (CP).
Dental blocks (n = 10/group) were randomly divided into COAL, COAL/RT, COAL/WT, CP, CP/RT, CP/WT, RT, WT, and CONT (without treatment). Simulated toothbrushing and whitening treatments were followed...
When pigmentations appeared in the esthetic zone and were visible during the patient's smile, they were very disconcerting. There are multiple techniques to eradicate or ameliorate these discolorations. This article will address those pigmentations caused by amalgam particles.
Keratinized gingival grafts were used to cover and mask these pigmentations. In addition,...
This article proposes a random‐forest based A2Cloud framework to match scientific applications with Cloud providers and their instances for high performance. The framework leverages four engines for this task: PERF engine, Cloud trace engine, A2Cloud‐ext engine, and the random forest classifier (RFC) engine. The PERF engine profiles the application to obtain performance characteristics, including...
Binocular vision is a popular method for 3d measurement, but the precision and efficiency is still a limitation. In order to solve the problem of low precision and high mismatching rate of current stereo match methods in weak texture region, a local stereo matching algorithm with multi‐scale based on anisotropic match cost was proposed. Not only including the gray value between the adjacent pixels...
